Darwin's theory of the evolution of species, the view that the weaker and the "unfit" would, in the natural course of events, fall by the wayside in the interests of an upward or progressive movement resulting in more refined and higher life forms, has clearly been refuted by "Bitch" if the recent (and usual)submissions are any indication.
In spite of the marvels of the new electronic technology we find, tiresomly, recent entries which deal with eating one's snot, having one's penis dipped in the toilet while shitting, and some breathless inquiries about establishing sex phone-chat lines.
This is not only uninspiring. Rather, it is indicative of a more serious intellectual, moral and sociological crisis. One begins to reflect on the fact that the structure of "Bitch" resembles that of the elementary schoolyard with its pratfalling buffoons, insider informants, and authoritative vice-principals. The question, of course, is whether "Bitch" has progressed beyond the Grade V level.
Sadly, one must conclude that the answer is "No." Depressingly, one must conclude that the common run (also called "The Underclass") is not aspiring to some higher life form as Darwin hoped but rather is a millstone, dragging the species back into the primordial swamp.
Thank you for your interest and concern.
