Darwinism On Defence

An excellent article by Pat Buchanan on what Lewis called the religion of «scientism». However, Pat should check his historical facts. He refers to an essay which suggests that «Darwin smuggled Malthus' mid-Victorian political economy into biology». I have no argument with the thesis that Darwin cribbed his ideas from Malthus, but Malthus died three years before Victoria ascended the throne and Darwin published The Origin of Species in 1859, when Victoria still had 42 years to reign. Thus neither Malthus nor The Origin... is very «mid-Victorian»!
