Jonathan Haidt: The Groupish Gene

This one is called "The Groupish Gene: Hive psychology and the origins of morality and religion".

It is more from Jonathan Haidt advocating group selection. I tend to see this as the sort of thing you get without proper ideas about memetics and cultural kin selection.

Kin selection pretty-much swept group selection away in the 1960s and 1970s. We may well see history replay itself in some detail - with cultural kin selection and cultural group selection.
