Darwin is the father of fascism?
O'Leary at Post-Darwinist is fond of slandering evolution. In this blog of hers from 6th Nov 2006 she quotes A. N. Wilson who in Telegraph's World of Books wrote:
"Darwin, the product of British imperialism, was surely the father, among
other things, of European fascism."
There are many definitions of fascism, but they mostly include the presence of a dictator, no allowance of opposition, strict social control and that the "primary guiding principle that the state or nation is the highest priority, rather than personal or individual freedoms". This hardly sounds like Darwin (or evolutionary science by extension). The dictator sounds more like a vile intelligent designer to me...
