Ideas are just makeup

February 20, 2013


Capitalism and Darwin. Evolution is the intellectual underpinning for both capitalism and communism. Survival of the fittest. Things are constantly developing, changing, improving.

And yet. In America, conservative intellectual circles are bipolar. On the one hand they applaud the Darwinism of economics while at the same time denying Darwinism of history, religion and all other assorted disciplines.

All of this is a smoke screen. What counts for these people is power. Ideas are just makeup.
