It's pretty obvious how it would really be decided... The one with the cash dictates the rules.

Re: Eugenics, yes or no?

Eugenics was the "science" that Nazis used as the basis for the Holocaust. Before they made the step into total extermination of the Jews Germany was praised by US Eugenicists for the way they were dealing with people that were unfit the live and reproduce.

That's a scary path for us to start walking down. And we can't possibly stop people from having children because we think that they're children we will grow to be unproductive members of society.

It didn't help that Hitler was influenced by Marxism. as well as Nietzsche's nihilistic vision of the Ubermensch.

The biggest apparent motivator for the Holocaust was ''The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion'', an alleged fictional yet frightenly plausible guideline of how the Jews plan to take over the world through stategic and methodical methods. Not condoning the the Nazi's actions in any way, but that book is truly one of the scariest things i've ever read.

The story about US Eugenicists praising the Holocaust method reminds me of the Unit 731 attrocity, and how the United States gave Japan a pass for their warcrimes in exchange for their scientific data. Some of the Scientists working in the Unit were lauded as hero's of biochemistry, some were even given high positions on Western soil.

It's a sick world, Folks.
