“Facts ignore ideology” In a set of rather bizarre tweets on Sunday, notorious atheist Richard Dawkins argued that eugenics, the practice of selective breeding supported by the Nazis, would work perfectly well if applied to humans, because it works on animals. “It’s one thing to deplore eugenics on ideological, political, moral grounds.

There is nothing wrong with Eugenics, as a matter of fact the modern western world desperately needs it.

Just take a good look around you and see how many people wouldn't have survived childhood 100 years ago, or how many people look like something hatched from Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory. The human race is getting uglier, fatter and darker, and that isn't good for humanity or the future.

Socialist "redistribution of wealth" has the effect of negating a natural tendency to select a mate on the basis of valued merits (intelligence, compassion, stability, health, etc etc). The result on society is an increasing trend of superficial short term/unstable couplings and children born with genetic predispositions towards randomly selected and superficially attractive traits. IMO we don't need to institute "eugenics" to restore that imperative to seek out a potential long term partner with merit, I think society needs to stop the open ended redistribution of wealth facilitated through taxes and benefit payments.

He's actually has a point on this one. In the west, we've been implementing policies that are diseugenic - welfare rewards the lazy and stupid over the smart and industrious. Open borders is replacing a 100 IQ population with an 85 IQ one. It's literally destroying our society now. You don't have to do genocide to create policies that will select for better qualities over time.

Eugenics might be the only thing that, at this point, could save humanity.

"work"? HOW exactly??
what does it look like if eugenics has successfully "worked"??
