Responding to the notice below.  If the attached document is their
argument, it is certainly at least partly wrong.  Evolution in general does
require some measure of self-success.  How else did cell-phones come into
existence?  There was no advanced selection mechanism that mandated for
them.  The inventor created them,. took the risk, and made money by by
being right.  Lots of things are like that, and also affect international
security,  Those interested in this might also look at the attached current
discussion of national security. PA-843.pdf.  And also Hirshleifer document
at
https://jasoncollins.blog/2013/04/01/economics-from-a-biological-viewpoint/
and the underlying Hirshleifer document.

All,



You are invited to our SMA speaker session presented by Dr. David Wilson
(SUNY Binghamton) entitled “Adapt or Die: Taking Evolution Seriously for
National Security” on Thursday 28 June at 1000 ET. During this session, Dr.
Wilson will discuss the following content:



*Evolutionary theory developed more or less continuously in the biological
sciences since Darwin but experienced a case of arrested development in
relation to human affairs. This is why almost no one thinks about studying
a topic such as national security from an evolutionary perspective, despite
using words such as "evolve" and "adapt" all of the time in the vernacular.
Now it is possible to do better, based on advances in the study of human
bio-cultural evolution that have taken place during the last three decades.
I will provide a broad overview of these trends and their relevance to
national security issues.*



Please dial 866-712-4038, then passcode 37250264# to enter the
teleconference.



Please find Dr. Wilson’s biography and slides attached.



Respectfully,

Nicole Peterson
