Natural selection has to do with what allows a critters to reproduce with more or less success compared to others of its kind. "Survival of the fittest" can impact that when the survival threshold has an impact before breeding occurs, but they're distinct things. (The old people example up thread doesn't have much of an impact on evolution because they were already past breeding age.)Natural Selection says what? :lamo
The natural selection process has led us to where we are today. Groups of people who didn't work together and take care of one another all died off.
As you acknowledged by your silence on the matter, there's not some outside influence that renders what actually exists un-"natural." The evolutionary pressures that exist and existed created what we are. So far, it seems to be working quite well. Humans would prob'ly be classified as "of least concern" conservationally.
