Moral Darwinism in the 9/11 Epic Poem

The Following is an Excerpt From chapter 10 or so of the September 11 Epic Poem. The entire Poem is 2,000 lines long and was written between June 2008 and May 2010. It has 1,499 Rhyming pairs.
For how can Dad be very mad   
            Who once did lots of pot?
Can it be fair to make them bear
            A load that he could not?
For we, in spite, turned out all right,
            When love began to grow;
So these ones, too, might make it through,
            If we just let them go.
But still we bleed to watch them feed
            With lack of self-control,
The same deceit that help defeat
            The light inside our soul.
Why must they waste with careless haste
            Their lives as if they’re dirt,
When they could use their gift of youth
            To help and not to hurt?
But they will sob it’s not their job
            To live a life that’s charmed.
How dare we claim that they’re to blame,
            If someone else is harmed?
It seems less bad to live a tad
            With pleasure as their guide,   
Once they’ve explained that life restrained
            Is just like suicide.
For they will say no single way
            Is better than the rest.
The golden law in all its awe
            Is really not the best.
They’ll say we’ve built a sense of guilt
            Through artificial wit;
For modern lore cannot ignore
            Survival of the fit.
For Darwin proved that it behooved
            All life to fight and strive,
Since none of those who helped their foes 
            Could flourish and survive.
The modern state invalidates
            The view of days gone by:
That folks should seek to help the weak
            Whom nature chose to die.
