Survival of the Fittest Versus Mutual Aid

*Round One of an anticipated Twelve Round Bout*
With Special Guest Referee: Pyotr Kropotkin  
And Everyone's Favorite Ring Girl: Leo Tolstoi 
Postproduction by: Herbert Spencer and Rupert Murdoch

I'm gonna toss you away 
To the crocs someday,
- And that's when I'll say: 
"Try surviving through this!"
"Without receiving my aid!"
"If you think you're so 'fit' - Why not try to prove it?!"

I'm sure you're gonna say:
"But wait! "
"I don't even know the difference between 
'Darwin's theories on evolution' 
and 'Social Darwinism'!"
- To which I'll likely refrain:
That's what they always claim,
When they have one foot stuck in a mouth
And another foot bound for the grave..."

I think I also see political and economic Darwinism here, and the suggestion that our evolutionary model is important to our enculturation; a kind of primal creation story, perhaps. Revolutionary material.
