International relations and cultural group selection

The Social Evolution Forum published a piece of mine on international relations theory and cultural group selection.

This is a new response Pinker’s essay that makes different points than the ones I made in an earlier post on this blog, since those points were already covered by other commentators on the SEF.

Instead, I focus on the role that cultural selection plays (or might play) in international relations theory and that it would be hard to talk about selection in IR without reference to groups – specifically sovereign territorial states.

If you check it out, please tell me, in the comments, where I go wrong.
