"Survival of the Fittest, is becoming survival of the richest"

Actually, that isn't a whole lot different of a concept, and for humans, one of them usually translates to the other.

Better diet, eating more, better shelter, less injury, and humanity introduces intellect and knowledge into what it means to be the "fittest".

I THINK I'm from Philly... I assumed for most of my life that most people in Philly have what I have.

Untrue.
In a world of cheesesteaks, pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, and Italian hoagie sandwiches, breads and pretzels and cheese fries... and TGI Fridays...

The Gallery, Neshaminy Mall and the Liberty Place Mall...

A hell of a lot of people there in Philly know of the existence of NONE of it..
and survive on peanut butter and jelly.

Because of this...
I won competition after competition in strength.

I'm also not rich, but working class.
I just know how to get the most from what I have a lot better than a lot of people do.

So...
Survival of the Richest, isn't a whole lot different than Survival of the Fittest.. and in our human world, it often CAN translate to the other.

yep, but then again that's also part of the concept of fittest as well, just a different kind of fit..
and actually, an advantage.

And because I have a lot better diet than a lot of people where I'm from.. believe it or not...
I also deliver.

When I was 14 years old, I did landscaping work.
I would go to home depot, buy sod, plants, soil, mulch, lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, weed whackers, and tools.

All combined it would often weigh about 800 pounds.

I was too young to drive.
So I would drag it by shopping cart, across the city... by hand.

A lot of times I down on my ass...
I had no money sometimes...
What I would do is make iced tea from teabags, make a 3 or 4 day diet of left over chicken, and count pennies, and ration all of them until I could drum up more business in landscaping.

I survived living in about a 2 star hotel one time, in West Atlantic City, in NJ.
For a whole year.
Because my sister stole everything we had.

I would go and fix roofs there, until Hurricane Sandy came a long and gave me a break.

a few months later I saved up enough to leave the area.

For the first time in a few years, I'm on my way back up in terms of the wealth that I have saved.

I'm good at making websites, and fictional places based on uninhabited large landmasses around the world, that's a skill that I developed out of having sometimes nothing else to occupy my time.

Fantasy (within limits) is an acceptable past time, but you can't offer it full-time to escapees.

"Survival of the fittest" is a rule of nature and it's perfect. I see it work with my own eyes.

I have had the hobby of breeding birds for over 30 years now, I keep a family [stud] of about 80 birds for exhibitions. Each year they breed 100-150 new babies, so I replace some with older or inferior quality, so as to remain with a stock of about 80.

I experience a new generation each year, so over a period of years I can say I've seen kind of evolution in progress. Through experience I have set theories of my own about managing live stock especially one regarding the 'fittest'. In the beginning I used to struggle to cure and save the odd sick bird, most of times without success and spending money on medicines and cost of vets proved to be crazy to spend on.

So I formed out logical reasoning, since I have abundant number of birds to spare each year, I let the sick ones cure by themselves in the natural ways, if they recover I still discard them from the next breeding programs.

With this method over the years I have built a family of stock birds sickness free and I can't remember any that were sick in recent times. The point is that the healthy produce the healthier.

Without being a 'Hitler', I try to bring up this argument, that mankind has spent his energy and resources on ways to cure people rather than avoiding sicknesses. Today we know that the greater number of deaths are due to heart deseases and diabetics, both of which are inherited as are many more common sicknesses. People are born with inherited defects and they produce others with the result that most probably all the human race is now infected before it's born.

“Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.” ― David Mitchell
