More coffee!! Darwinism and popular culture: If this is love, please hate me instead

This guy, David Loye, an American progressive, wants a kinder, gentler evolution, and tells us about the real Darwin:

Yes, but did Loye happen to notice all the racism in the book? This transcript of a talk gives you some sense of Loye's program for all of us for the century.
