Social Darwinism is a lie. No individual, regardless of his or her worth, can hope to compete against a conspiracy. Indeed, the concept of Social Darwinism is a conspiracy that has enticed many an individual who is/was otherwise not self-aware.
The social power of any individual is determined not by his or her personal evolved state but by the deference of others. The power you wield is entirely a function of the power others yield to you. Without the collective, the individual is nothing.
Chew on that.
