Forced sterilization, right? I'm down with that. But who among us, gets to make those decisions? Who says who can procreate? I don't want that burden. Do you?

Should it be in the hands of the people? If everyone had equal opportunity to the body of knowledge that would enable them to make those decisions wisely, that's where I'd want that power to be.


there's no judgement needed.
For example: A deer eats fermented apples, gets drunk, falls into a gulch, breaks its leg and gets eaten by predators. A squirrel walks across the top of an electrical transformer, gets zapped. Neither of them gets to reproduce. As a result you don't see so many stupid deer or squirrels.

So: A human drives drunk, wraps his car around a tree, but we're nice so we don't let him die. A human doesn't turn off a power circuit when wiring up an outlet, gets zapped, but we're nice so we don't let him die.

The standard is simple and wholly objective: if in the state of nature you would have died from whatever-it-is, we'll be nice and keep you alive, but you'll be sterilized so you don't reproduce.

No judgement calls needed. Any lifesaving medical intervention comes along with an extra snip or two.

And you can be sure this will also make people more mindful and cautious, in other words, make them behave more intelligently.

Otherwise we are breeding for stupidity, the results of which are amply obvious.

The logic of this is inescapable.
