Darwinism. A hideous aspect?

Hot-footing towards justifying the inequalities writhing in societies the world over? Aimed at making sure that individuals yield to the power of states, states overrun by a handful of individuals whose only and single goal is to accumulate riches, forcing every one else to submission? ... to their will?

Providing the ideological framework for a fertile ground where mottoes of everybody against everyone else, kill or be killed, my survival runs through your extinction, proliferate. The jungle rules ok amidst our societies. A poor metaphor, remnant of the british colonial era ideas still held tight in the minds of people, ridiculous when someone brings into mind the present state of jungles, decimated by the western philosophies spread-out notions of, ecological cleansing and ruthless exploitation.

Is it just an attempt, for people to find acceptable the current state of affairs, the world over? The domination by the fittest of the weak of our world?
That there some of us that are better than the rest of humanity? And these better individuals deserve more than every other individual put together? That they even deserve first ticket in the rat-ship out of this world, as it heads towards its certain doom, when is proved to be beyond redemption, destined to oblivion? And the rest of humanity, the undeserved, will be left behind, to be extinguished along the ravaged by the unscrupulous exploitation in the pursuit for ever more profits, planet? To suffer the consequences and be sacrificed?

What is hidden behind the triumph of natural selection, that they so admire? The ruthless struggle for survival, the proverbial jungle the world is. The human affairs ruthlessly distorted, pervaded in every aspect human relationships are nowadays, out in a never-ending competition. Is that what it is? Competition that could lead to extinction of the weak?

What kind of thoughts, the remark of Richard Fortey, quoted here, can lead to?

"How does evolution produce enormously species-rich genera, such as Eucalyputus, many of which can co-exist happily in the same habitat?"

... co-exist happily in the same habitat? Something along the lines of

"The model posits a complete replacement of one generation by another better-adapted generation? Generations in each bifurcation point, of a linearly developed evolutionary tree, present all the 'initial conditions' for the next stage of evolution to take place? 'Initial conditions' in the context of chaos? The sensitive dependence and all that, that will determine the next better-adapted generation?"

coming through out of the findings mentioned here

"Rather than a competition occurring, the model posits a complete replacement of one generation by another better-adapted generation."

Abolish money. How?

Abolishing money can not be taken as an act of revenge on any 'in-whatever-way-it-can-be-assumed" wrong-doers of an age past. Emerging societies where money are abolished can not be thought off according to the standards prevailing in societies nowadays. It is a goal to be reached and the only thing it can be done in our present age and time is to sow the seeds for its coming. As the human individual, in either collective or individual level is unable or incapable to forsee the ensued complexity in human relationships that lies ahead.

It is not or it will not be the triumph of socialism or any other kind of system upon other. It is not going to be the result of class struggle but instead of co-operation among individuals regardless their background. I would say it precludes and excludes any system of government currently present the world over, in fact any such system would be abolished before money are abolished. It is not a system where individual or collective will can be forced upon any single or group of individuals. Wealth would be a valid concept, no more.

Government will shed its cloak of power and the administrators duty will be just as any other duty, any other individual undertakes. It is a path that all human individuals will tread alongside each other, humanity in its natural course where all individuals are accounted for.
