Makes perfect sense to me.
Everything is a competition for resources, and some excel with wit, some with brute force, some with deception, etc.
The most successful in our society are not always the most moral, but then again, what are morals anyway? Morals are based in religion, religion
based in control, control based in wit, force, and deception, so it is just a furtherance of the competition for resources.
In modern "civilized" society, we often protect the weakest members of our society, reward the lazy, coddle the inept, lower the expectations, and
in the process we lower the quality of the collective gene pool and who does this benefit? It still benefits those with the wit, force, and
deception. It might seem like a charitable thing to do, but it creates an easier populace to manipulate and control.
I think it makes perfect sense that our world is controlled by sociopaths, and it will continue to be so until the collective populace rises up and
changes things with brute force, but then a witty, deceptive leader will emerge, and the whole thing will start over again.
