Although I have to say eugenics is not going to be the thing that we will agree upon or be able to find common ground upon.
Scary, The worlds grain would not mater, remember the dollar/bushel is capped at a determined price, therefore even if the price of a bushel goes below the cap, the dollar retains it value at the original set price cap. That's why I asked if it would be legal.

the mumbo-jumbo of the Al Gore Folly of purchasing additional carbon tax credits...and certain oligarchs being paid huge sums of carbon tax credits is just like the present system of fiat money, bernanke dollars, not having a realistic valuation and just being fake paper/monopoly money
actual productive citizens would be classified via their genetic code (disease susceptibility etc) as to a basic base pay in Crbon Credits.... lifestyle & behaviors, productivity, resource consumption and other factors would define the addition or deduction of Carbon Credits to each individual...
a sub culture of black markets would barter in liquors, drugs, nicotine, social activities and all those things that would be detremental to one's life/health/well being/psychology/ or have a Butterfly Effect on the family &/or social sphere in the individuals home-neighborhood-local city-national demographics
but, a NWO...a central supercomputer would have to be the final word...the 'LawMaker' as it were
Mainly because state socialism was a government where all citizens are essentially inducted into the military, which by definition contrasts directly with the ideals of communism where there is no government.
