Having freed ourselves from most of the burdens and laws of nature, including those which allow for it to be self-sustaining, we must wonder how long
we can continue shoving the problems we have created under the bed before they begin to take a toll on us.
We in modern society have risen above natural selection, now we MUST, and I repeat, MUST, find a way to make up for the imbalance of the ratio of
life:death and devolution which is taking place, or continue on this path to our own peril. It's really not a matter of ethics, though ethically it
is horrifying. Measures need to be taken to prevent overpopulation and habitat destruction, otherwise we will pay dearly in the long rung.
I suppose the argument is the following:
"We have to do something awful"
"But it's wrong and I don't like it!"
"But if we don't, our planet is going to die"
"But it's wrong and Hitler advocated it!"
So what if Hitler advocated it, or if it is wrong. Though eugenics, like any institution, can be corrupt and of bad intent, it is a necessity unless
we are to return to a more basic way of living in which nature takes care of eugenics for us.
