So Men Are Trapped by Evil Times

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."
