Charles Darwin neither invented nor discovered
how animals compete with one another to survive.
On his voyage on The Beagle to the south seas
he began his studies by reinterpreting Lamarkism.
The more he looked and thought, and took samples,
the more-through the ideas of Thomas Malthus-
his understanding found something wholely new.
Alas he could not have foreseen how his science
would lead to wholely new arguments to justify
the inequality and misanthropy between humans,
where the rich trod on the poor to maintain their wealth,
because such steps were 'natural'. And in the next century
false victimhood would further falsify his science for it's triumph.
If science rewrote history the way Christians once did,
then 1809, the year of Darwin's birth, would be Year Zero.
B.D. would be Before Darwin, A.D. would become After Darwin,
and The Good News would be about how well the purest science
proves that the wealth of the powerful is their right,
particularly when it justifies the poor being poorer.
Because Capital and Capitalism are just like nature,
and advantage is everything in competition,
both have to be defended at all cost to the losers.
Beneath the fur both all is red in tooth and claw
and everyone and everything is beyond redemption.
