John Wilkins has an important post on Herbert Spencer, "Social Darwinism" and the alleged complicity of Darwin and science in the Holocaust:
When I first started to read philosophy and history I heard about this demon. His name was Herbert Spencer, and he was famous for three things:
1. Incomprehensible prose
2. Coining "Survival of the Fittest", and
3. Coming up with a "devil take the hindmost" laissez faire political philosophy that was called "social Darwinism".
I have since learned that demons are figments of the imagination, and so it is here, as well.
