How ironic is it that it’s the same extremists who deny science and Darwinian evolution that are all for Social Darwinism, a dark, nihilistic philosophy that holds that higher values like empathy and altruism are weaknesses to be eradicated. Only sociopaths and psychopaths need apply. Social darwinism can only lead to one thing: mass extinction, not only of humanity, but of all life on earth.
Without empathy and caring for each other, as a species we would have self destructed long ago. It’s an important survival requirement.
Even animals have empathy. Without it, we will sink into barbarism and eventual extinction.
