Eugenics

Eugenics is the science of improving a population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desirable heritable characteristics. Eugenics can help eliminate genetic diseases, reduce personality disorders and increase intelligence via human biotechnology. Hitler gave eugenics a bad name, but the modern objectives are actually highly desirable. Time to reconsider.
  1. Human intelligence is largely hereditary (80% by adulthood).
  2. Civilization depends totally upon innate intelligence (without it, we'd still be animals). A small increase in mean intelligence leads to a large reduction in crime.
  3. The higher the level of civilization, the better off the population (how many Westerners seek asylym in Africa?).
  4. At the present time in the West, we are evolving to become less intelligent with each new generation (stupid people have more children).
  5. Unless we halt or reverse this trend, our civilization will invariably decline.
