Weakening the natural selection would increase the rate of evolution. This is because mutations aren't removed as efficiently – this increases their frequency. However, this is not the result of natural selection only (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0168952507001138).

So, does the rate of human evolution actually change over time? Is there any evidence for this?
