First of all eunuchs were never commonly used as political officials in the sense that you are proposing Although there are a few instances of eunuchs
rising to power. If we were to return to the traditional use of eunuchs it would not be the president, senators, etc... who would generally be getting
castrated but rather their aids, household servants and such. With that stated I think that your title is a bit misleading.
Nope ... because by ending UP castrated they have already PROVED they WERE already predisposed to serious breaches of morality!
This is an uneducated response. If we returned to the traditional use of eunuchs as public servants these people would be castrated as children, not
after they committed some moral crime as you are supposing. These were the children of commoners (us) or the children of conquered people. They
committed no crimes other than being born lowly or being the children of enemies. If you are proposing the return to using castration as a form of
punishment that is something else, but not what the OP suggested.
If you truly believe that we should return to the use of eunuchs in the traditional sense then I challenge you to offer up your prepubescent sons to
be castrated and used however the President sees fit. Me, I personally like the fact that we no longer use slaves of any type, eunuchs or no.
