Name these wars
What particular wars were waged based on evolutionary basis after dissemination of Theory of Evolution?
The underlying rationale is that the local countries bloodlines or DNA or genes mutated in that countries borders, is somehow superior to those humans in another country.
The problem with that idea is that people realize that the genes are not that different across most borders. Most wars use economic, cultural, or religious rationales.
How do you separate a war/fight/discrimination based on the desire to improve the human race (social darwinism) instead of racial hatred which is based on the fear/hate/etc of the different and the competing?
I am thinking of the civil wars such as Rawanda where economically and politically suppressed groups killed the visibly different upper classes.
And which comes first, the decision to go to war or the desire to eliminate the other group/race/etc? I think the frequent case is that the decision for war is made and the justification of racial purity comes later.
