Ken Miller on Darwinism

The truth is that evolution, however persuasive, is a biological theory fashioned to explain descent with modification. By what logic could anyone pretend that principles found to apply to biological systems must also apply to social organizations, societies or nations? Economic theorists may derive colorful analogies, insight and even inspiration from evolution, but to prove the validity of economic theories by mere reference to evolution, a biological theory, seems to me to be stretching Darwin’s good work too far. (Miller, pg175, 1999)
