Just been reading "the selfish gene" by Richard Dawkins and I find it very interesting. There are bits that bother me though and thats bits like survival of the fittest and basically being aggressive and selfish is infact benificial if you want to reproduce (I could be wrong, im only a couple of chapters in). I'm just wondering how Buddhism relates to this. I mean does being a Buddhist mean being Mr Nice guy and therefore finishing last? Can Buddhists be assholes if necessary?
