Microbial communities don't follow Darwinism?

Come to think of it, Darwin's principle of natural selection appears to be
flawed. Natural selection can not account for the evolution of microbial
communities, and it can not account for the close association of
microorganisms within a microbial community.
If there is such a close association within a biofilm or community, then
competition simply can not exist.
Well, that sure throws Darwin out the window, doesn't it?
