The Application of Darwinism to Ideological Change, with a Case Study of Food-Safety Regulations
By Tomohide Yasuda
This article appeared in the Fall 2009 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Like living organisms, ideologies come in varieties, pass certain traits to their offshoots, and are subject to a process of selection. Thus, the application of concepts from biological evolution to the study of ideological change can help us understand ideologies more systematically, as the politics of U.S. food-safety regulations illustrates.
