    I'd just like to add that "Eugenics" movements have been advocated by Adolph Hitler, Henry Ford, David Rockefeller, and GHW Bush. Why is it that the rich people want to promote this? Oh wait, a thought has manifested; could they see themselves as survival of the fitest because of their great wealth. Fittest for Corporatism, and let's cull the defectives, eh?

    There's nothing wrong with directed evolution.

    It's understandable that change scares people, it's unfortunate that it's the case even when that change comes in the form of progress.

    Don't you know quoting yourself is against the unwritten rules?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    ...so? I'm sure they would have loved Fusion too but it doesn't mean the technology is Nazified. Good grief.

    Let me clarify:

    The Nazis would have loved this for reasons of their evil ideology.

    They also would have loved Fusion for the reasons of their evil ideology. I'm not a Nazi so I don't care.
