We humans have become increasingly shameless. It probably has to do with the increasing general contempt for God ["there is no God, only matter and its motion], the foundation of moral order. And our shamelessness leaves us defenseless against the seductive blandishments of the avatars of tyranny. The rhetoric of Liberte [W/o God, as the French Rev illustrated, Liberty becomes meaningless]
, Egalite [Some men are more evolved that others, as Hitler showed us], Fraternite"[How does the brotherhood of man fit in with survival of the fittest?] sounds so good and right and decent, how can it have been such a successful mask for so much Evil in the world, down to the present time?
A mask for evil it was and a mask for evil it remains. Good thought!

You know that I find Evolution to be beneath contempt as science. Foucault would have been proud ... IMHO, of course, since in this PostModern Age all is a matter of opinion ... ;-}
