The Lucifer Principle

The Lucifer Principle says that both competition between groups and competition between individuals shape the evolution of the genome. The Lucifer Principle shows these facts at work especially in human evolution. The Lucifer Principle «explores the intricate relationships among genetics, human behavior, and culture» and argues that «evil is a by-product of nature’s strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric». It sees selection (i.e. through violent competition) as central to the creation of the «superorganism» of society.
