Perfection is a Syren beckoning the unwary into an abyss of perpetual desire. Say you its a beacon motivating people to rise above, to perform deeds that ye ole bards may sing of, but getting right down to the root of it, its just plain greed. Cutting away through the heavy cloak of glamour and glory, its but plain desire, the bane of mankind.
But enough ranting. That was just a brief prologue to my modest views on Eugenics. Well see, eugenics as the name might suggest is all about making sure procreation happens in the right direction. The propagation of good genes, which are the precursors of desirable behavior and appearances. Human intervention in what should have been natural selection. Its not something that can be completely condemned without truly giving enough thought taking into consideration the magnitude and implications of the cause.
I may not be the ideal, unbiased source that should introduce you to this subject, but my concerns are something that is universal. Eugenics, of large, was shown in a bad light all through the Nazi holocaust resulting in mass death. Decision making is purely a result of ones perceptions, the way one is molded to think. Good and bad is strongly relative, and most people tend to forget that. Is the eradication of deviants and those mentally/physically disabled, something that we should actively be working towards, assuming it were possible?
Utilitarians would produce the argument that it would benefit the community as a whole and also reduce the number of people dealing with constant shame and mental trauma. Sounds nice but when everyone is perfect, no one is.
Would you go ahead and tweak genes so that every baby born is the poster child for beautiful and smart, decline those, unfortunate enough to suffer problems most men dont, to exile or castration even?
The illusion of control is far ranging but in the end, an illusion is all it is.
