It just occurred to me the extent to which Darwinism - itself based on Adam Smith's writings about economies and related ideas of survival of the fittest, etc. - naturalized Capitalism as a "normal" or "natural" social system. As its cultural hegemony has increased, non-capitalist nation-states seem increasingly "unnatural" and thus the call to forcibly overturn those regimes is supported by the seeming "unnaturalness" of their social systems.

New to all this blogging craze! I was actually looking for stuff on Screenplays, but it's cool I found this. So much interesting stuff out here in the blog jungle, one could get lost. I'm a screenwriter, script consultant, and author...so I'm always on the lookout for good writing, interesting people, and new ideas. Anyway...blog on!
