No, because there is no such thing as survival of the species, except possibly for some lower life forms such as ants and bees, see the recent discussion on group selection.

even ants and bees have genetic reasons for what they do. Look up ant genetics. Notice also, not many groups of insects locked onto this particular mode of living.
