Winners of the world

Evolution dictates that one 'species' eventually emerges as the 'winner': the one that adapted the best I suppose. Does this notion also apply to more metaphysical concepts/ formats/ ideas in the world? Can't see why not, even if the real winner can't be known until the end of the world, but it is fun trying to think of what the winning bets in our time frame are. So here goes:
1. English.
1. China (although I think India is a dark horse).
1. Islam.
1. Capitalism.
1. An e-Virus.
1. A Virus (or possibly a bacterium).
1. Women.
1. Co-habitation.
