When food is available, even the weak survive. In times of plenty, the mutants can
have offspring. In times of famine - which we are approaching - most of these die,
but a few live. That's how evolution works.
Animals that kill weak children at birth don't evolve so far as those who let all
children live, when possible. Look at the ancient Greeks - they let their blind poet
Homer live, because they could afford to. Maybe he had some talented children who
could see. The Spartans killed their weak children. In terms of cultural evolution,
the Athenians won out. They had better methods.

Even the old human tribes kept their old wise men around and let mothers keep
their crippled kids. If all you care about is physical strength, go run around with

Most urbanites would die, regardless of race or physical strength.

Changes might be on their way, but we're *never* going back to the Stone Age.
A lot of our infastructure (hydro dams, roads, buildings, etc) can stand on its
own for at least a hundred years without maintenance.
A great deal of our military and satellite technology was built to withstand any
catastrophe. The GPS satellite network, comm. relay satellites, and all of our
strategic nukes will still work if nothing else does. You're talking about tribal
race warfare based on physical strength. Buddy, we have enough guns and ammo
and tactical nuke artillery shells to last for another five centuries. The smart
people will *always* win.
