Natural Selection and the Evolution of Ideas

The refinement of simple life forms into the complex animals that we see today has been explained by evolutionary biology. In simple terms, diverse changes in organisms have been naturally selected by the need to survive, adapting to a changing environment, changing predators and varying food supplies.

Interactive Democracy encourages diverse ideas to solve social issues and provides a mechanism for selecting those ideas. The selected solutions may throw up new issues that encourage more suggestions for improvement that may then be selected. In this way it encourages social evolution.
