    Not to be confused with Darwin.png Darwinism.

    Social Darwinism, shortened to Darwinism, is an ideology inhabiting a far-right area outside of the political compass that advocates for a society where all murder, theft, and competition is legal, with the intention that only the strongest individuals will survive. "True" Social Darwinism has never been implemented in the real world and is largely based on fiction like the Purge films. Most ideologies that we might associate with Social Darwinism were actually influenced by Eugen.png Eugenicism

    History and Variants

    SpencerDar.png Spencerism

    Spencerism refers to the philosophy and sociology of Herbert Spencer. Spencer was a 19th-century English author and philosopher born in Derby, England who wrote various texts about "Universal evolution" which was a theory believing that everything from the universe to societies to flowers starts out as homogeneous and then becomes heterogeneous before then transforming back into a homogeneous substance. The ideology however is based on Spencer's view of natural selection and survival of the fittest as well as sharing common ground with Awaj.png anarchism through ideas of full freedom for the individual and not being forced into actions one is unwilling to do. The ideology is also Cap.png capitalistic and thinks that those who are rich and successful are so because they developed skills through natural selection that let them get and keep those positions on the social hierarchy.

    Capitalist Darwinism arose from various criticisms by people on the left of the capitalist economy (whether it makes sense or not). Some critics claim that capitalism would lead to extreme wealth for the richest and misery and exploitation to the death of the poorest in factories. They also claim that there would be total destruction of the environment, with government support as an exchange of values, combat against unions and communists and the greatest increase in the misery of the poorest.


    He really loves competition and thus spits in the face of scarcity, and often challenges other ideologies to duels.

    The term “social Darwinism” originated in the 19th century and, as historian Peter Bowler suggests, “was used from the start in a pejorative context". To call someone a social Darwinist was to insult them by implying that they had abandoned all moral standards to make success the only criterion for what is good” (Bowler, 2003, 299). The term was popularized in the 1950s by historian Richard Hofstadter (1916-1970) in his work Social Darwinism in American Thought.


    Top of the Food Chain

    • Krater.png Kraterocracy - Nice aesthetic. But I don't see what the point in having a "rule of the strong" is when you could just make everyone strong.
    • Avar.png Avaritionism - Cool dude! We've compared weapon collections. But without laws the strong might end up... *stretches* "showing compassion" again.
    • Comb.png Combatocracy - We dominate the weaklings together!
    • Prim.png Primalism - The animal kingdom is an example of natural selection in its purest form, not affected by the "morality" invented by people.
    • Merit.png Meritocracy - Of course, the most talented will be at the top of the chain! But why do we need useless ones?

    Temporary Predators

    • Anego.png Anarcho-Egoism - Moral egoism is very based but you don’t use it enough!
    • Nazi.png Nazism - These idiots called themselves Darwinists but didn't win the war? Cringe. Aktion T4 was based though. The Dirlewanger Brigade would've been based, too, if they hadn't turned out to be a bunch of pussies beaten by commies.
    • Fabian.png Fabian Socialism - Kinda based but what's with this caring about the poor shit? You know caring about your own people is a weakness too, right? Still, the only lefty I might be able to have some use for. Maybe.
    • Eugen.png Eugenicism - Right idea, wrong application. Artificial selection and natural selection are two very different things. Also, it doesn't go nearly far enough. Why not just kill off all the inferior “people”? Do you value their lives or something? That might be showing compassion as far as I'm concerned, which is a weakness I can exploit.
    • Odal.png Odalism - Waiting for you after the end of civilization.
    • Illeg.png Illegalism - Like to commit violence like me, but only out of petty self-interest, sometimes even for no reason at all. Unlike I merely use violence to actually achieve a visionary ideal.
    • Nazcap-Hat.png National Capitalism - You have great ideas, but are far too moderate.
    • Cap.png Capitalism & Fiscon.png Fiscal Conservatism - Market hierarchies are based but you are even more moderate for my tastes.


    • Communalist.png Communalism - I'd say he's poisoning our gene pool... But it's more like he's spitting on our gene toothbrush. Using someone else's toothbrushes can lead to infection, so you and your friends in the commune infecting each other prove the theory of natural selection...
    • Anpacf.png Anarcho-Pacifism - Literally weakness.
    • Annil.png Anarcho-Nihilism - "I admire how much you want to be like me" is what I would say if you weren't some larping edgelord. Grow a damn spine!
    • Kak.png Kakistocracy - Rule of the stupid?! You will die first!
    • Mediocracy.png Mediocracy - And you for second!
    • Hmind.png Hive-Mind Collectivism - How can there be competition if everyone is the same?
    • VHMent.png Voluntary Human Extinction - Natural selection at it's finest.
    • Soul.png Soulism - There is no such thing as an unjust hierarchy.
    • Egocom.png Ego-Communism - Aren't you just Soulism but with fewer drugs?
    • Esofash.png Esoteric Fascism - THE SAME GOES TO Burgsys icon.png YOU TOO!
    • Humanismpix.png Humanism, Soc-h.png Socialism & Welf.png Welfarism - True biological evolutions of humans can be only realized by accepting that NOT ALL HUMANS ARE EQUAL and that they must not be treated that way either.
