Good day my fellow paranoid friends, I have a question you may be able to help me with..
Eugenics, according to Wiki
Eugenics is the study and practice of selective breeding applied to humans, with the aim of improving the species. In a historical and broader
sense, eugenics can also be a study of "improving human genetic qualities.
To put this in simpler terms, if two really smart people decide to have children. Changes are pretty big their children will shows signs of an above
average intelligence. This also works for really dumb people. If they reproduce, changes are pretty big the apple will not fall far from the tree. To
let government take an active role in this process of selection, by restricting those who bring down the gene-pool or endorsing those that will have a
positive effect on it, is called Eugenics.
It used to be a pretty popular notion. A couple of thousands years ago some guy named Plato already saw the benefits of this "selective breeding" in
order to enhance the overall quality of society. After reading the theory on the origin of the species, Charles Darwin's cousin Francis Galton
reasoned that because of the nature of society to help the weak and poor, we were scr*wing up the evolutionary process. "reversion towards
mediocrity" he called it.
That of it's self is pretty smart to recognize (
) and it may even be considered smart to try and take appropriate action to prevent the weak
elements from scr*wing up the local gene pool (
). After all, nobody would benefit from a society where the majority is dumb and poor. But
because of some guy in mid-20th century Germany, who was a really big fan of this concept and just took it way to far, we all decided that ethics and
basic human rights do not allow for a concept as eugenics to be executed.
Because basic human rights, ethics and government really don't mix, the idea was far from abandoned. The average Joe would not understand but we are
at war with the rest of the world and the goal is to create a society with the least amount of bad elements. Raise the average intelligence as well as
the average immune system. Again, for the progress of our species it is important that the function of the survival of the fittest is maintained but
because of the social tendency to help those weaker, Government sees itself forced to take matters into it's own hands.
Oh before i forget, congratulations on the Healthcare bill!! "To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in
health care spending" is a really great achievement and you have every reason (and right) to be proud of this.
But beside it being a sign of an advanced society, health coverage to all Americans will also function as a tool for implementing something so
sinister that most of you will not recognize it and most likely welcome it with open arms.
In January 2009, President Barack Obama unveiled plans to implement electronic medical records nationwide within five years, arguing that such
a plan was crucial in the fight against rising health care costs.
, that's right folks, this will be the turning point in history where we as a society decide to abandon ethics. Of course "they" have
already made this decision for us but it's paramount, in their little plan, that we stay oblivious.
Let me break it down for you...Some time from now (few months, maybe a year) you will again be faced with a dilemma over efficiency vs. privacy. Your
government is going to tell you that a nationwide EMR database is going to be created and every American will be included. Some of the more alert
people will demand that they be left a choice whether or not they want their private information in this database.
Your Government will come up with some weak excuse about how they forgot to think about the whole privacy issue and went ahead and created accounts
for everybody. But you will be left with the option of getting your account removed from the database if you fill in a written objection to your
government in triplet and accompanied by a copy of your birth certificate. After about 90% of people, who initially objected, simply agree with the
whole thing because of all the work it will take to get your account removed, the 10% remaining will be told that the size of their group does not
validate a "drastic" change to the system....
How do i know?? They pulled of the same sh*t over here in my country last year (I even had to pay 25,- to have myself removed from this database). And
i could not get my head around it back then but now i think i do...
By having central access to information that is important for deciding which individuals have a positive and which have a negative effect on the gene
pool, you can take precautionary action by not allowing the bad elements to reproduce. They, of course, will not be informed about this. Just a simple
pop-up on the pharmacists screen that patient 22977765-00-AA is not suitable for reproduction and a friendly request to put something extra in the
medication that will neutralize their reproductive means.
Now for my question....
Would you stand up and object when your government tries to implement this?
Have a good weekend!!
