The Day The Universe Changed: 8 "Fit To Rule"

The roots of Republicanism, it's all here, Survival-of-the-Fittest, Social Darwinism,
Class Struggle.



The Creationists don't believe in evolution except the part about
survival-of-the-fittest class struggle that selects God-fearing
Christians to be on top of society. The 1%, remember?

The last half is among the best ever, imho.

2. One of the best series ever made for television.

Keep hoping it will be rebroadcast, but the mass of religious, supernatural, and and UFO crap on the History Channel, and Discovery makes that too dificult.

5. This episode was just so important

Republicans always denounce liberals as engaging in "class warfare"!

And we don't respond to that very well. The MSM just let's their characterization
sit there and drops it.

But IF liberals are engaging in class warfare, as if that's accurate, what do you
expect them to do when exploited by a system of "Class Struggle"?

Freedom, fairness, economic and political equality are all something that working
classes have been seeking for more than 200 years. Revolutions shook
Europe from 1792 to the 1820s, certainly in 1848, and southern Europe in the late
1800s.

So yeah, it's class struggle.
