Evolution plays a numbers game in which survival is based on vast losses.

Applied to politics, one strategy is population growth equating to value proliferation, another is infection for utilization, and a third is hivemind colonization.

Survival requires confrontation (genocide), adaptation (symbiosis), or resources applied to stagnation (equilibrium).
Nature is agnostic to your moral conceits but as tactics for consensus amplification, they are tremendous survival protocols.
