Seriously now, are you suggesting that social malaise did not exist prior to the discovery of evolution?

I don't think that any scientific theory or even any social movement is, in and of itself, capable of causing unrest.  It is people, acting of their own free will, who choose to do so.  There always have been and always will be those who choose to play off of various types of social unrest for their own purposes, and they have existed since civilization itself.  Accusing "darwinism" of causing social malaise is like accusing religion of doing so because of the Inquisition or the Crusades, which would be an equally absurd statement, as obviously religious people have also done great things in the world.
