Ideas that win in life, are winner ideas, doesn’t mean they are good or bad, but it means they are good at winning.
Does a winner idea always win? is there a spectrum for winning? would an idea that won in history always win under the same conditions? that’s the margin of error of an idea winning or losing then being adopted from all the world?
If luck is big factor for an idea to win are all our culture, customs, morality, law… mainly what won with some luck?
