> Weak or naive animals in a group are often bullied away from the group or killed prematurely by agressive animals. When taking the Darwinian stance our society and even families show this selection proces too, in a more subtle way. The least productive people get lowest incomes and are most unhealthy. The weak people in office or family are often bullied and become outcasts, dying prematurely. Naive people in cities like Los Angeles get shot, raped or robbed....
Since we both like movies, we both know that the LA pictured in the movies is a dumb fantasy! Life for large areas of Souhtern California is exactly what you say about the weak suffering at the hands of aggressive types....
Youth & ethnic gangs make a sport of shooting bystanders, espically very young childern. The body count is something like a low level civil war! I cann't imagine any European government long remaining in power with such conditions bleeding the public like this; most, I feel, would go to martial law to restore public order & safety.
