We are experiencing this right now as demonstrated by our lawmakers and ultra wealthy that are only living a few more years than average. Rather than leap forwards to new venues and concepts they prefer to try and Keep the status quo. On a day to day basis you can currently pick out examples of people trying the same old ideas that keep the existing power structures and ideas in place. From our newest lawmaker ruling on taxes to social reform that is trying to mimic the "good old days" . A viable society is not build from the head down but from the feet up. Any group that does not conform to changes around it is doomed to fail as exhibited by history time and time again. Evolution is harsh for a reason and perhaps this is the true answer to Fermi paradox without death there is not enough motivation to take risks, and without that risky behavior it ultimately lead to society's collapse as no new solution are Implemented. Name me one great innovation or discover that was made without risk.

Individuals mostly do not care about evolutionary scale. They care about themselves. This is going to happen, whether it be good for society or not.
