Ethics irrelevant says Darwinian philosopher

The natural state of humankind is action embodied in conflict as individuals and their collective societies vie for sex, power and supremacy. The concept of ethics is window dressing created by some social groups who wish to distract or slow the progress of those gaining the upper hand. In the end it’s only those who obtain societal leadership and control of TV remotes who will rule and perpetuate their kind. That is the latest pronouncement of experts who hope to explain what in the world has been going on.
“Anyone who says you should behave in a certain way because it’s right is trying to sell you something,” said Sam Simpleton, a Darwinian philosopher who once planned to rule the world, but gave up after deciding it was too much work. “There is no certain way to behave and religions and philosophies that try to instill ethics and rules on society are only doing it so they can establish some kind of control for themselves. The concept of self control just gets in the way of people who want to do whatever they feel like.”
Over the years various philosophers and religions have taught that humans should show self control and kindness to one another and some have had bouts of success, but more often than not individuals or groups have broken with the efforts to restrain them and started wars, went on killing sprees or invented cures for complex diseases. Debates about when to break societal “rules” and whether restraint really equals discipline and whether discipline is good have been ongoing for centuries.
“The United States of America is a country that resulted largely from Europeans fleeing religious oppression and establishing a European-like society in North America but with religious tolerance backed with lots of religious principles underpinning the government all tied with individual rights over that of the State,” said Bob Hope, a comedian who became a philosopher shortly after his death. “Of course they had to kill a lot of natives and take their land in order to establish the new country, but that’s a time honored tradition. The natives had been doing that to each other prior to the Europeans showing up. Conquering others and enforcing ones will is a natural thing, historically and semi-ethically speaking.”
In related news, stem cell research and genetic engineering continue to be seen as important keys to a brighter, healthier future for humankind, and efforts to stop them from going forward are also seen as keys to a brighter, healthier future for humankind. Debate over who should control the TV remote continues to rage.
