The rich or successful have always advocated the "survival of the fittest."
In the biological sense, it is the ability to reproduce and survive.
Survival is dependent on intelligence, but is reproduction also dependent on intelligence?
Do smart people necessarily pass down their intelligence in our society?
I have noticed that smart people have 2 or less children or have no children at all. On the other hand, I've known a rural couple with no job with
more than 12 children.
If that's the case then who is the fittest?
Am I fit because I'm successful? Or am I fit because I can pass down my genes?
