>>118420810>Honestly, I think humanity would have been much better off if eugenics actually have been used. Empathy IS the most horrendous pain a socially intelligent human-being can experience when a new-born family member is losing to the genetic dice roll. The way human mind handle emotional pain is the reason why governmental welfare has gone so far...
I actually feel like the answer to this is fairly simple: test for and allow for selective abortion of diabled people. Most parents choose to abort if they know they're going to have a severely disabled child.
There's no need to kill diabled people, something which is first of all, evil, and second which won't work. People who are not disabled become disabled all the time. Also recessive genes will always allow more disabled children to be born.
Instead of become violent monsters who start killing sentient living beings and inevitably falling into warfare and fear (if society starts murdering anyone who gets injured or becomes sick, the glue will disintegrate until we don't have a society any more, frankly one of the main reasons people associate with each other and even animals associate with each other in social species is to get help if you fall on tough times), be proactive.
Focus on genetic engineering and until then, early testing and abortions. Within decades, you could solve problems that thousands of years of brutal life conditions (think of third world countries where life has always been hard) did jack shit to solve, because genetics doesn't work that way.
In the meantime, society has the resources and excess personelle to care for the tiny percent of people who truly need around the clock care even with proper treatment. They'll eventually die humanely of natural causes and the new humane and purposeful eugenics will take over. Being evil is maladaptive, it has never worked.
