"(There's an evolutionary principle here! -- trees growing taller competing for sunlight ... vehicles growing larger competing for safety and status ...)"

Thanks merv, you have appropriately demonstrated that 'evolution' is not used merely or purely as a biological concept/percept. The idea of 'competition' is obviously and intimately linked with peoples' understanding of evolution. S'truggle for life' and 'survival of the fittest,' if not commonly used in contemporary biology, botany or geology laboratories or research sites, are still helpful in applying the ideology of evolution to a variety of social, technological, philosophical or even theological situations.
"And I don't think any of us living in this country escape responsibility for the attitudes we are even now exporting to the world."
Do tell please, what attitudes are you 'exporting to the world' (rationalism, scientism, positivism)? Did you mean that you are exporting a 'survival of the fittest' or 'struggle for life' attitude to 'the world'?
