: Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection argues that the world is a place in which there is a scarcity of resources, there is competition between varied forms of species, and that the most fit forms successfully survive.

Actually thats a misinterpretation - "the survival of the fittest" means the survival of the fit. In other words you dont have to be the best to survive, just 'good at it'. That blows away many of the assumptions people make about society.
