Even now, it is hardly disputed in our obsolete schools and academies. This convenient religion, of unquestionable scientific pedigree, underwrites with its whole authority the concept that the highest evolutionary types, "the fittest", in the jungle, whether animal or human, are those who can grab the most in the material world, at everyone else's expense.
Safety, Connection and Problem-Solving
Its saints and heroes would be found among the Saddams, Pinochets, Murdochs and all the more or less invisible plutocrats who rule our present world, and whose interests are safeguarded and whose veneration is assured by prophets like Thatcher, with their sacred words of power - eg "market values", "growth", and of course "profit". We can suspect that this inspiring philosophy upon which our modern society is founded, and the absence of all other values, may have something to do with the exponential increase among the young of suicide, drug consumption, crime and violence.

The Peacock Principle: Beauty, God, and Darwinism
It is well known that truncated survival data are subject to sampling bias, where the sampling weight depends on the underlying truncation time distribution. Recently, there has been a rising interest in developing methods to better exploit the information about the truncation time, thus the sampling weight function, to obtain more efficient estimation. Our framework is structured in a way that is easy to understand and enjoys a great flexibility for handling different types of models.
Moreover, a new test for checking the independence between the underlying truncation time and survival time is derived along the same line.
Simulation studies with practical sample sizes are conducted to compare the performance of the proposed method with its competitors. The proposed methodologies are applied to a dementia study and a nursing house study for illustration. Source Statist. Zentralblatt MATH identifier
