    They realise it, I hope, but can 't say that it is so ! It is a question of ideology ! It is a question of being alfa or béta, of being in charge of your own life or being the ball culture plays with. It is a question of being individualisticly or being collectively orientated, it is a question of being inspired by Lamarck or by Darwin, it is a question of being part of the ' old ' science ( alchemy and witchcraft) or being part of the ' new ' humansciences.

    Science is at the mercy of the democratic doctrine that everything and all are biased along a same, equal template. Science can 't spell out that one culture is better than another, although some voices are heard. Science is reduced to stop saying that the notion that the one who is fitter will survive is true. That is the paradow of democracy and science sits in the middle of the debate.
