I have a good attitude about Ridley, who doesn’t go with the windy noise of the warmers.
However I don’t think that social and political evolution are a real thing.
People see evolution in phenomena that are just change.
Are we more socially and morally evolved than Aristotle and his students?
Smarter, more sophisticated, better?
I apologize for using the essay from The Guardian but the ideas promoted by Ridley don’t ring my bell.
I will skip my criticism of this obsession with Darwinism that is so important to the atheistic humanist secular left, except to say that Theodore Dalrymple did a pretty good take down of Neo Darwinism in his recent book Admirable Evasions.
