Just to stop some idiocy, I'd like to make a formal note concerning E. O. Wilson's Sociobiology, 1975. E O Wilson's book can be seen in at least two major ways. I like to point out the positive normative one and this is the view that we need to stop "celebrating" the degenerate, the diseased and the unable! This should be a plain extract to make of his book! Enjoy!
I guess many conspiracy theories and speculations have been made in the wake of this book and one is plausibly this. One may have feared that Wilson has been advocating a kind of "sociological nazism" where one is constantly putting the population under pressure to see if the population "evolves faster or better". Now this is very deranged, I think, because the "experiementers" are usually referring to consequences well beyond themselves and where there is little or no factual results to point to other than Darwin's Theory of Evolution and the study of animals. Animals are not people and fantasies of Alpha Males and Superhumans quickly overtake the proponents, rather than seeing, of course, the natural hierarchy of predators and prey, where the kills are of course, again, not that of human made torture, but by bite, poison and various other natural features the animals have! Please, be a little moderate and restrain yourself from "cheap arguments" that are more fantasy than of rigour and proper scientific quality!
Philip Kitcher has made a very prudent comment over E. O. Wilson's book in his Science, Truth, and Democracy!
My view is of course that concerns of evolutionary kinds can be taken care of by human self-discipline out of Homo _Sapiens Sapiens_! Thus, any ugly admittance of human nature is by this removed, soundly!
