The Fight for Life
It is a misfortune that the human spirit has an irresistible tendency towards everything that's weird, complicated and confusing, looking in places where one can only glimpse at clear and simple forms, tangled up complexities done very much on purpose to mislay the candid intellect and weak reasoning of the proletarian crowd.
The Darwinist Theory of the fight for existence has been tenaciously exploited by all who hold economic privileges, as a last resort for defending the individual appropriation of property and means of production and change.
The individual appropriation -- the sophisticated defenders of property tell us of their last analysis -- is the only condition of progress for the fight which is established between individuals to obtain it; it is the only incentive and stimulant for work: otherwise no one would want to produce.
Other than the brutal, barbarous part of that statement, in which the fight between individuals of the same species -- the highest of species-, a fight which does not happen between the individuals of any other species and in many cases between species, is established as a vital condition, we find that such life condition is superfluous and whimsical in how much the stimulus to work is determined by the desire to live, by the same instinct of conservation that imposes upon us the essential and unavoidable want to produce.
Who ignores the fact that, when born, one feels a commitment to conserve the life one has just acquired? Who is not aware that every individual contains in his molecular set-up the vital elements that push one to maintain and conserve themselves?
Only a damnable education and the social deviations produced by individual appropriation, have been able to look for indispensable coditions of progress in artificial ways.
