: SDF: Just as there is no natural law requiring cultures to survive,

Did I say that a law suggests cultures must have comparative advantage to survive or that comparative advantage can enable one group to survive over another and that in those circumstances it is of benefit to the group in question, that in our society children receiving superior education etc do better compared to others and that parents not wishing to give that up are quite understandable

: desiring survival may be a "natural" urge, but this is hardly of any consequence when one is enculturated.

Just because a person can be "enculturated" to happily accept death does not mean that in order to survive such things as comparative advantage are not of benefit to survival or prosperting. the above all assumes that the person/s has as a goal their and their childrens survival and prosperity. "enculturing" that away does not cause things which benefit those goals to become invalid in pursuit of those goals
