Contemporary U.S. politics features a strong correlation between evangelical Christian voters and a conservative philosophy close to social Darwinism. Liberals often question just how Biblical conservative economic philosophy actually is, but its underlying assumptions certainly seem to run contrary to Ecclesiastes
"I have seen something else under the sun:
The race is not to the swift
or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
or wealth to the brilliant
or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.
"Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come:
As fish are caught in a cruel net,
or birds are taken in a snare,
so men are trapped by evil times
that fall unexpectedly upon them."
