Spencer is credited with developing the concept of Social Darwinism. This concept has been applied throughout history as justification for a hands-off approach in politics and social aid. How does the philosophical idea of Social Darwinism manifest itself in Spencer’s time and how does it manifest itself today? Give one contemporary example of either a social or political policy (think globally!) that you feel embodies the idea of Social Darwinism and support your example though the primary sources of Spencer. Remember, I am asking you to view this as Spencer would have, not as you do.
