Evolution gave us morals for one reason or another, which now appears to have gone too far. Because of these morals we have advance well-fare systems that makes the stupid able to survive and reproduce when they only a few hundred years ago would've been "selected out" by natural selection. The problem is that morons are masters at reproduction.
Today everyone can get kids, without a problem, and that's not beneficial for the evolutionary process as natural selection has on its agenda to single out the bad traits.
Does this mean that the evolution "lost"? It developed a trait(morals/ethics) so well that it backfired?
I generally consider myself a moral person, but the advanced morals we have today are only an illusion of the zeitgeist. Put yourself on a deserted island and your morals are vanished.
The evolution will always live on, but I think humans may have been an evolutionary "mistake" if we allow the bad traits to prosper.
I don't think there's a reality, but still I think we're farther away from the non-existent reality than ever before. Even then I know what politics I wish to rule, it's only that my mind won't agree with my morals.
*I know I could get badly flamed for this, but it's just that I wanted to see your opinions on the matter. I'm in now way a social darwinist*
