Why do you assume that it is all one or the other?

Or, in philosophic terms, who's right: Prince Kropotkin or Herbert Spencer?

Oooo . . . i'm inspired now . . .

It was Hobbes . . .

During the time men live without a common power to keep them all in awe, they are in that conditions called war; and such a war, as if of every man, against every man.

A professor said there is no god of love, since he sees warring everywhere from the molecular level to the gigantic level. For example, he said black walnut tree roots send out toxic chemicals to weed out almost all other plants near them.

I know no man can live without eating other plants/animals.

I think no plants/animals go extinct because of the toxic chemicals of black walnut trees. Every plant/animal benifit other plants/animals. Doesn't that show mutal help as a rule of life?

@bewildered,
Warring came first. Multi-cell creatures invented mutual help.

@Ionus,
I cannot edit my questions now, but I should have phrased my question as:
Does life exist owing to mutual help or warring?
Which is the rule of life for plants/animals, mutual help or warring?

@bewildered,
Mutual help is just a more sophisticated form of warring against other groups...its a circular ever larger process of cycles...

The problem is rather about evolution of systems...

@bewildered,
The first requirement for life is shelter. Then war to see who will own the shelter.
Fil Albuquerque raises a good point of view :
