In The Descent of Man, Darwin wrote only twice of “survival of the fittest” – but 95 times about love , 92 times about moral sensitivity, and 200 times about mind and brain!

Behind these four simple statistics lies the story of the what happened to us during the 20th century and the difference that can be ours in the 21st.

It is the story of how the first Darwinian revolution liberated us from the top-down control of the wrong kind of religion in the 19th century — but then in the 20th century re-enslaved us with the new top-down control of the wrong kind of science.

It is the story of how Darwin wrote that at the level of human emergence evolution is not primarily driven by survival of fittest, but rather by moral sensitivity, education, and cooperation foreshadowing the century that could have been— but wasn’t— ours.

It is the story of how, by joining the second Darwinian revolution, the better century CAN now be ours.

This is the story that [[Darwin’s Unfolding Revolution]] tells.
Why is this important? What’s your personal stake in this book and what it reveals? Thanks to the pioneering of Rachel Carson, David Brower, Gro Harlem Bruntland, Avory Lovins and many others, we at last, very recently, rapidly evolved enough to understand how and why the quality of our lives — indeed our very existence — depends on the quality of our natural environment.

What makes what Darwin really believed of crucial importance today is because what fills — or doesn’t fill — our minds becomes the cultural environment that shapes the future of our species and our planet.

Would you go on painting your home today with lethal lead paint? Or insulating with cancerogenic asbestos? Or drinking water laced with arsenic? Or electing presidents or legislators who fobbed off global warming, the hole in the ozone layer, or the melting of the polar ice caps as nothing but the alarmism of “pointy heads,” “double domes,” “elitists,” or“scientifically unproven?”

It’s the same story for cultural environment — only here we’re still running a full century behind. If you are a scientist, teacher, parent, book author, editor, publisher, newsman, newswoman, film or TV writer or producer, or anybody else in a position to influence others, please think about this.

Year after year most of us automatically trot out or automatically pass on the PseudoDarwinism of survival of the fittest and selfish genes above all. But what Darwin actually wrote tells us that every time we do this we lay another brick on the road to earthly hell.

Discover how the second Darwinian revolution can make a difference for the better in your life, the lives of your children and grandchildren, and in the lives of everyone living on this planet on into the future.

Read the book and join the second Darwinian revolution.
