Thank you for an informative and temperate article. As regards changing the evils of social Darwinism, may I recommend Joan Roughgarden's proposed replacement of sexual selection with social selection, discussed in her book 'The Genial Gene' http://tinyurl.com/5tkmdad .

1776 is pretty good for the start of the Industrial Revolution in Britain and for British expansion with opium wars, East India Company. Nothing to do with the demos, but as a start date for capital wealth, not bad.

The alternative historically is a great big war e.g. following the agricultural and industrial revolutions. We haven't had a war for the computer revolution yet. it is not obvious we can avoid one, and hoping for transition towns does sound a bit weak. Wish I could offer something better. "Don't vote, organize" comes to mind.
