Chapter 3: Life is Selection (The Lessons of History)

Life is selection. Nature loves difference as the necessary material of selection and evolution.

Nature does not care about any political manifesto’s that man has written. To nature, men are not free and is not born equal.

Differentiation underlies evolution. Without variation, there is no nature, no complexity.

Equality and freedom are at odds.

Those who are below average desire equality while those who are above average and know it desire freedom. Those with superior talent will get their way.

"Silence is the best expression of scorn" - G.B. Shaw
