The Human Zoo: A Zoologist's Study of the Urban Animal
a book by Desmond Morris
(our site's book review)
Is this man more likely to survive as an individual fighting "heroically" or as part of a cooperating, fire-wielding group? Group/clan living facilitated human survival and evolution. Morris agrees, saying that local and global cooperation give better survival chances.
He espouses diversity and the need for tribal groups of like-minded people to coexist in close proximity with one another for collective identity and belongingness. He criticizes the idea that survival of the fittest, in the sociological sense of Social Darwinism, means fighting over resources and general competitiveness; he shows that local and global cooperation give better survival chances. He sees control of the overpopulation problem as critical, since too many people is the direct or indirect cause of most of mankind’s problems.

The Pope needs to rethink the idea that covering the earth with a layer of squirming humanity twenty feet deep will demonstrate the 'glory of God' (rather than the stupidity of humans)!
He advocates creativity, the opportunity for creativity given as much as possible to children, and empowering the pursuance of creativity in adults via doing what it takes in their upbringing to keep their inner child alive and well—which means fully effective nurturance without deprivation, abuse, or neglect.
