From creation and/or evolution, the human species and other organisms have continuously struggled to survive - a survival, which essentially, determines the preservation of favored organisms, therefore ensuring the continuity of life on Planet Earth. Hence, the biological process of sustaining life on Earth also has an application to the political, social and economic order of humanity.
As developed adapted folks thrive in ideal social and economic conditions and environments, perpetual change offers no guarantee to their continued survival nor to any fallible claims of dominance over less developed people or environs.
On the other hand, current and forthcoming change could offer greater coping mechanisms to the less developed, thus pushing their survival abilities beyond those of other competing groups and ensuring their continuity as favorable organisms.
Naturally, along the course of such change, there will be the inevitable defining fight.
