:-o :-? This:
And OC, survival of the fittest is Marxist, it's not a long standing element of most cultures including your own likely. It's a pre historical knee jerk tribal response to threats. Most people have been brought up in relatively nuturing environments, not intense near death and criminal ones.
Survival of the Fittest Marxist!! :-o Rubbish! Survivial of the fittest is the crudest form of Egoist winner takes all kind of creed there is! The world lives by this creed right now,Free trade is survival of the fittest as the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.Survival of the Fittest has more incommon with extreme libertarians like Ayn Rand than with Marxists.Marxists believe in equality for all in theory remeber!:roll:
Nuturing society HAH :lol: ? Bollocks there is no nuturing society either in the west or elsewhere. Everyone is looking after number one themselves and possbly their family of consumerist convienance certainly not their neighhbours atleast in anglo western society.Indeed some argue we dont even live in society in the west but a "System" Margaret Thatcher ex Bristish Pm certainly seemed to thing the term "society" was obselete as far back as the 1980s!.
I dont see any overtly nurturing nanny state in Australia although we do have a welfare state!. Certainly I am lead to believe the US with its strong libertarian privatisation ethos is even less so!
BTW :You may have had comfortable middle class upbringing this doesnt mean others have or they are doing well financially! Personally i am sinking rather than swimming I certainly dont need immigrants in my country taking jobs and spots in education that should belong to Australians!.Especially those with a completely foreign culture and religion that bring pure crime to the country and wont integrate into the host culture :-x
