He suggested that the planet would be "better off" if the human population were to crash, and that a mutant strain of Ebola (which has up to a 90% mortality rate) would be the most efficient means. After he finished his address Pianka was given a standing ovation.
How do i know? Well quiet frankly i don't, nor do you #know# they would. My point is that genetic illness is still very common among kids born in the west, 'undesirables' having children is also very common - this proves that eugenics is NOT currently being carried out on a mass scale.
Many very sensible scientists looked at the emerging genetic research during the early part of last century and decided that humanity was possibly in trouble if the genetic problems related to many common conditions were able to 'fix' within the human population. Millions of years of evolution could be ruined and the whole race destroyed if those previously weeded out by natural selection were aloud to pass on their faulty code, of course it turned out that they were getting a little carried away with themselves and the human genome was more stable than they suspected - however it is an undeniable truth that should the genetic pool stagnate humanity would suffer in the long run, the question of how to stop the gradual decay of humanity is a very tricky one.
A common idea is eugenics but this has never really been taken seriously because of the implications you mention, civil liberty. The ideal solution comes from the dangerous and scary technology of genetic enginering - the possibility that genetic errors can be fixed, alas many religion weilding philistines seek to ban this vital scientific breakthrough and with out it society will eventually collapse. I don't see why any blind, geneticly autistic or any kids with other genetic problems need to be born once this technology is perfected.
Those few people who still support eugenics do need to be blocked thats for sure, however the main body of scientific opinion and political action is indeed going towards the second more acceptable option. The shady NWO types like the rothschilds no doubt support the second option also, they are all terribly inbred and suffer from a mixture of genetic conditions. I don't think that eugenics is anything to fear anymore, it's an obsolete science -gone the way of the sextant, replaced by better and more reliable methods.
Everyone has genetic illnesses. No one is perfect. Labeling someone who has a genetic illness does nothing good for the rest of the world.
They weren't sensible. They wanted to rid the world of people who weren't whites, and, to make the world be absolutely perfect. They wanted a utopia that is completely impossible, and, they were not afraid to get rid of anyone else who they deemed fit. The world should not be ran by such people.
We shouldn't be focusing our efforts to something like eugenics which brings the end of families. Rather we should be focusing our efforts on curing these people. You seem to have a pro-eugenics look. One look at history will show that eugenics isn't that great.
I believe eugenics is still around... just in other forms.
