Nice overview. I'm missing the argument that societies which accept death outcompete those without it. Or do you see that covered under social stagnation?

See also the arguments given in the Defense of Sexexism.

It's definitely a development on the idea of social stagnation yes. Arguablely a plot point of the 'Dune' prequels.

The arguments are mostly unrebutted still, no matter what zealots think :(

Definitely some good points there I need to add.

Dune Prequels? Cool. I didn't know there were any.
