While I agree to a certain degree, the problem I have with that type of thinking is looking at fellow human beings as "weak" or "inferior" or "unnecessary". Stephen Hawking is not a very good physical specimen either but life isn't just about "survival".
It's not "eugenic" to say this, it's a fact. Medical science + oil + food availability means that we save the weak and their genes can now replicate.
Are you suggesting that the herd be "culled"? I foresee a dark day in the NWO when all the weak and "useless eaters" have been removed from the gene pool. In that day those that remain will look around and find some other group unworthy of life. Maybe those whose biceps are freakishly large since that trait won't be needed in a technological utopia. We are not cows or dogs to be bred for service. Dogs have been selectively bred to the point of developing physical problems that the original stock did not have.
If you put bacteria in a closed system, something always happens to drastically alter population once it reaches a certain level. Why don't you think this will happen to us, and why don't you think the weak will go first?
Human beings are not bacteria. The universe is not a closed system
and we have plenty of room and resources left.
And the reason I don't think all the weak will go first is because children are innately weak and people still protect their children with their own physically superior survivable lives if needed.
Its pure logic, nothing sinister about it.
Didn't you learn anything from Spock? Pure logic is soulless, without beauty and ultimately self-defeating.
