This was in contradiction to other progression philosophers and social darwinists. It also appears to be more correct.

    "Survival of the fittest" was actually a term coined by Spencer, not Darwin. It didn't appear in the origin of species until later editions.
    While I have read alot about Spencer, I haven't actually read his writings. While I already stated that his writings led to the idea of eugenics, most of the sources I have read strongly emphasized his importance in an evolutionary belief of racial superiority.

    Really? I was thinking the same thing for someone who insists the word ego is just stolen jargon and disagrees with the OED.


    Nevermind, that's just my id again. (My superego once again insists I make it clear you can blame me for dumbing down the entire English language.)

    OED doesn't disagree with me... http://www.askoxford.com/concise_oed/ego?view=uk

    A word describing someone's sense of self-esteem or self-importance does not equal to an overinflated sense of either.

    Furthermore, the British Psycholanalyitic Society (at least in part, but probably in full) also agrees. http://www.psychoanalysis.org.uk/williams.htm

    Not wanting to argue the deficiencies of the Concise Edition versas its full OED alter ego, it is much funnier to leave it as follows:


    D'OH!

    There's a big difference between being a tough guy and being a bully. Sounds like your boy did Bully Flag #1: he quit before anyone who posed a real threat actually challenged him. I bet he hangs out in a nearby bar, telling everyone within earshot how your school is a bunch of pussies. Enjoy his absence until he or his like-minded bretheren show up again.
