I appreciate your replies as well. It's important to keep these discussions civil without blindly attacking others as some people do.
This is not an enforced program in any way. I'm familiar with eugenics and this is not. I've read my original statement and I'm still not sure how it
comes across that way as I put "by choice" in bold.
The more I consider this, the more it HAS to be based on money. And I'll tell you why.
This is a movement
with the sole intention to undermine the "elite" classes from exploiting the scores of us below them. Something that
especially has to be done in 3rd world countries where they work 12 hours a day for $3. Or the ones that just starve en masse. But also everywhere to
eliminate the ever increasing control that the higher classes have upon us. Along with the sole intention, it would benefit the world in all the other
ways I've mentioned.
Using a financial basis is the ONLY way that allows the general population to make this change. If we went with IQ or another factor, do you think the
upper class would care? They would still have plenty of poor to exploit, just a smarter or healthier stock to do it with. Sterilization and laws
wouldn't come into it as It wouldn't/couldn't be enforced because it's the last thing they want us to do. It also could not be enforced because other
countries would simply not get on board with it. It has to come from us below.
Not only that, but go ahead and TELL people they can't breed. What do you think happens next?
100k is a nice round number that could easily be used in the U.S. but obviously would have to be adjusted for other countries. Again, there are many
diverse couples/singles that make that combined amount. An electrician/nurse combo might clear that easily and so would many other professions like
farmers and contractors.
And I'm sorry, but money is the
driving force of every aspect of our government and corporate culture. It's the only thing that hits them
where it hurts.
Sure, we can have great fun on a tire swing and joke with our families in apartments we don't own, but we're running out of time where those good
things are going to be overrun with increased oppression, stunted dreams due to financial strapping, passively enforced labor and large upswings in
prisons that make profits off of us and our kids.
Yes, it's a sacrifice and a rather big one. Almost everybody wants a baby/family sooner or later to hand things down to and fulfill that goal. But,
it's a sacrifice where no one gets killed and the further generations aren't suffering and struggling like they are now. Birth control and such are
implemented and used as you say, but it's just not enough.
We've grown by nearly 20 million people since Jan. 1 of this year. (Give it a couple days and we'll hit that)
It's no joke. The resources are running out fast. The environment only suffers more as we grow and need more from it. If something isn't done soon,
you'll see those eugenics being put in place again by the governments. They may well induce a new "hunger plan" or those water tonics eventually.
There wouldn't be a 1 child law in China if people took it upon themselves to not reproduce in this way but be sure we'll see that in the future if we
don't stop it now. More and more of our population are getting plucked into prisons for newfangled felonies. Our chances for a crippling global
disease only skyrockets as our population grows exponentially.
Again, as I've mentioned since my initial post, it's completely unrealistic to think that people would do this due to our selfishness and
irresponsibility. Many people share the ideal of a happy family unit. People have kids to lengthen relationships, derive support from their partner or
the government, to fill a spot where they are loved and needed.
No one wants to sacrifice for the greater good in this way. Just consider the nations that are literally starving and still pop out babies.
Teens/young people alone are irresponsible enough to mess up the entire goal. Because everyone wants to get what they want and the world will just
have to deal with it.
All it would take is one country's people, perhaps with a religious mindset for strength in numbers and boom - failed. And
as soon as we started really making a difference, you'd see a big swing in the nation's governments to give reproductive incentives. Then you have
people being offered money to have kids - boom, failed.
Australia already has them. They pay their people to have children. Pay for their schooling and have food programs for it.
It won't happen. It can't happen. But, it's the only thing that could solve the problems we see before us before those problems force it upon us in
the forms of suffering and death.
