And that's even the way the 'designer babies' thing is going.
The concern used to be that people would use genetics knowledge to... Try and breed Barbie girls or athletes or cognitive geniuses...

Only...

People are using genetics knowledge to...
Give birth to infants with Down's Syndrome.

I think there is something... Nice? About when a community is able to care for such a person...

But I think there is something... Deeply disturbing... About people who seem to pursue having such a person...

I mean... Really intentionally... Would rather prefer to have a kid with an intellectual disability (and possibly severe physical disability) than a kid who is well.

Maunchasen? Something like that...

Things like Glee...

Fine line between accepting and... Gloriyfying.

There's so much money to be made...

I keep seeing examples of how having a population who isn't able to understand a bunch of stuff... How controllable they are...

Aren't able to identify even less protect their own interests...

There is a strong element of 'you could spend your life arguing with idiots if it makes you happy' (as a warning of how you really could spend your life -if such a life would be something you find meaningful).

Tis not contrary to reason to prefer the scratching of my finger to the destruction of teh universe...

Don't want to get caught arguing such things round and round and round and round...

Don't want to get caught in conversations where everything is equally valid and right is wrong and black is white and up is down...

There really does come a point where you just have to get away from the awful. If you have the capacity to find it awful. Plenty don't. I guess. Just need to turn and walk away.
