Love 

Love is the only thing as precious as life itself, and it can't be bought or sold.

That must be maddening for people that don't accept its value. They spend their lives undermining it because they can't accept that something so precious cannot be commanded to do their bidding. They can't use love to further their interests, but they can prevent it from working against them.

The battle between good and evil is over the value of love. According to "good," a person's actions should be guided by love. According to "evil," love is an illusion, so a person's actions should be guided by the will to power.

Some people like to think that life is simply about survival. They make every decision as if nature had a knife at their throats. Perhaps nature does have a knife at their throats. Perhaps they're so desperate to "survive" because they recognize that their survival gear is obsolete. After all, they're the ones that feel they have to undo civilization, and manipulate people into going against their nature, in order to create the very specific and unnatural conditions required to support their "primacy."

Looking at the span of our history, it becomes apparent that despite the will to evil, the influence of love has steadily increased. It's reasonable to assume that this trend will continue. And it's reasonable to conclude that it represents a crucial aspect of human evolution.

It appears that the meek are inheriting the earth little by little. Although I like to think that we're not actually inheriting it; we're paying for it with love.
