Eugenics is all about how the elites envision the perfect human being, how we should be. Early on, it was about eradicating those who were considered inferior, through sterilisation and even genocide, or encouraging the ‘superior’ individuals to pass on their traits. It was an idea that was responsible for many of the evils of the holocaust, as the Nazis pursued their vision for the Aryan race, the “master race”. Such actions saw the sovereignty of the individual trashed in favour of a utopian vision for humanity and the greater good. Nowadays however, the vision has changed. The perfect human is now one which will be more climate-friendly.
IF IT is so hard to change the climate to suit humans, why not alter humans to suit the changing climate, philosophers from Oxford and New York universities are asking.
These would be the “social goals” that the elites have in store for us.
A person’s ecological footprint is directly correlated to size, because larger people eat more than lighter people, their cars need more fuel to carry them and they wear out shoes, carpets and furniture sooner than lighter people, the authors write. They suggest hormone treatments could be used to suppress child growth, or embryos could be selected for smaller size.
The authors emphasise they are not advocating human engineering be adopted, only that it be considered. They also envisage it as a voluntary activity possibly supported by incentives such as tax breaks or sponsored healthcare, not something coerced or mandatory.
Even if not coercively implemented, we still have the state trying to achieve the goal of a superior human race, rather than respecting the supreme value of each and every human being. While the authors do not envision or desire any sort of mandatory eugenics program to instil us with a sense of climate virtue, what they are proposing sets us down a slippery slope into dangerous territory, to a road history has taken us before.
Bill Whittle explains the battle throughout history between the constrained vision of humanity and that of the virtuous, unconstrained vision.
