Why do we misunderstand Darwin's Survival of the Fittest?

Few phrases in science are as influential as Charles Darwin’s evolutionary theory of 'survival of the fittest'.

Highly recommended short 6 minutes video to help you understand why we misunderstand one of the fundamental concepts in Biology - the survival of the fittest. This is why one must continue to be kind and look out for others, as we try and leave the world a better place for our future generations. Make better choices that affect our world positively.

"The idea is commonly understood to mean that those who are physically dominant have a higher chance of survival. But the evolutionary success of Homo Sapiens suggests that we might have completely misunderstood Darwin’s idea.
