Mr. Free Mason, within this thread you seem to have a conflicting moral view that representing in the "Emergency Services" thread.
Here you seem to show a degree of compassion for those "less fit" within the evolutionary model. One could argue that a habitual drug user is
certainly a week person, and humanity would be better served is this person did not procreate.
In your "Emergency Services" thread, you would like to see this prototype drug user die when experiencing a critical overdose. However, within this
thread, you appear to want to make sure this person has the same privileges as everyone else.
Evolution applies not only to biologic organisms, but to human society as well. From a societal point of view, we are in an evolutionary crux at this
moment in history. We have created a society in which individuals can survive and indeed thrive who might otherwise fail and die from a biological
evolutionary stand point. We have eschewed a "good of the species" point of view for a "good for the individual" stance, not by design, but
through moral standards.
And where will this lead us?
