Evolution is incorrectly seen as a process of the past but it is an ever present fundamental force of existence. The visible world is made up of levels of organization‰ÛÓmolecules to social groups‰ÛÓeach level depends on the previous one but also has emergent properties subject to selective forces. As citizens of the US and of the world, it is our responsibility to actively drive these selective forces in positive directions rather than abdicate this moral responsibility to market forces.
