Someone once told me that my
generation was terrible because

I think they neglected the fact that
their generation were the ones
that gave us the trophies.
It' s like if someone would come
up to you every day and punch
you, and then one day, start fake
punching you and being like "Why
did you flinch?"
And then write an article about
why we' re the "flinging
generation."

I do believe humans are becoming weaker as time progresses. The weak are no longer "filtered" out. But this process has been happening for longer than one generation and it is not the fault of any particular generation. The success of our ancestors will only lead to the eventual failure of their offspring.

I won't deny, I do feel like the odd one out in most situations. The black sheep or the weakest link. I have no interest in kids, or being social, or...much else. I don't see myself having kids due to depression, avoiding social situations, and performance anxiety. And since most women want sex, something I cannot provide, I don't exactly see myself in relationship.

I feel like you are trolling, since killing the weak is really an üntermensch thing to do. What needs to be done is sterilisation of the weakest. Like people with downs. I have a downey in school and I overheard her talking about her child. Her child. That is totally unacceptable for the continuation of the people. Before, the damaged children were put out for the wolfs. That however is purely evil. Pure evil has no place in a healthy and working society. If she had the chance of procreation stripped from her, but still given a good life, I'd call that the greater good.

But then comes the conflict of 'who gets to chose who the weak' are. If you put people with, say, IQ's of 180 in charge then they might see people with IQ's of 130 as weak, despite still being brilliant.

If you put someone who can bench 600 they might see someone who can only bench 500 as weak, despite still being strong.

If you put some who has a dick size of 13 in charge... Well, you can see how this goes. And it'd only take one corrupt, politically motivated, group to drastically change the earth.

I think we couldn't really 'implement' this until we, as a species, have moved past things like racism, sexism, and prejudice. There is no universal 'weak' or 'strong'. Being fat, for example, in the US it's enough of a reason for some people to want to torture and kill you. But in other parts of the world being fat is so desirable they force feed their daughters.

Just a point to mention though is that having a high IQ doesn't necessarily make you genius it basically means you scored really well on a test that measures neither creativity nor ambition.

I am a racist. I am not that bigoted however, how ever strange that might sound to you.

The strong isn't about the size of your dick, neither allways about your intelligence. The strong are the people that every day contribute too society through bravery and/or hard work. Take someone (with todays society it's hard to make these kind of things since everyone me included are degenerates) who every day works har at a farm. His genes are from the best stock. His familiy have lived here for generations, or somewhere like here. There have been no inbreeding, no or extremely little foregin genes. This person works day in and out, contributing to the nation with milk/meat/grain etc. This person is strong. He might, in some occasions even be gay or bi. But the strongest of individuals see that as nothing but an obstacle in the way. And he has children of his own. Strong as him. That, is a strong individual. A weak individual sits on his ass all day, smoking pot (I am not necessarily anti pot btw) and plays dumb games. Sure, now it's summer and here I peak the hipcrasy for doing almost the same, replacing the pot with alcohol, but you get my meaning. A strong individual sacrifices hiw own comfort, for the good of his people.

Strong is such a subjective term, though.

By your own definition Stephen Hawking would not be a good person to sire children. Neither would Albert Einstein.

Like.. We'll use me for an example. I work hard everyday on my own farm. I milk goats, collect eggs, tend fields, I grow enough food to support myself, and I give out what I don't need to my neighbors. I had to fight to get where I am, in my home, since my family didn't come from money. After I was born my parents became drug addicts/alcoholics and left me with nothing to my name, no advantages. I struggled through school Despite having an IQ of 166. I'm strong enough to pull an angry stallion to the ground and lift an angry goat buck into the shoot for wormer, and fast enough to chase down and catch unhappy chickens needing delousing. I do everything alone, no help. I barely make enough to cover my bills, but I do what I have to in order to survive and thrive. I don't drink, don't smoke, never touched drugs, don't run around ******* everything I see, and donate Plasma.. A lot. Because I know it'll help someone out there and it seems like a good thing to do. The money is a bonus. I do play video games in my spare time, though.

Would you consider me 'desirable'?

How would they not be good people to have kids. By contributing to the scientific/academic advancement of humanity, they are contributing. His definition of "strong" was someone who is actively contributing to society.

Albert Einstein did not contribute to the worlds Milk/meat/grain supply. He contributed to science, which is amazing and they were very important, but they were not people who worked hard and fit into his definition. I was making that point to show that strength comes in many forms.

You seem like a highly desirable person. Same with incredibly intelligent people like Stepehen Fedora Hawkins and Nikolaj Tesla. You really, really do, if what you tell me is true wich impossible to determine here semi anonymousley, seem like a very desireable person. More so than me ATM, since I am not doing jack **** except getting poltically raped by school (if only they teached instead of preached)

Till you learn I'm 280 pounds, Bi-polar autistic with a HIGH chance of Uterine cancer because of some form of jacked up hormonal function (which possibly contributes to my inability to lose weight. Seriously. I eat 1900 calories a day and sweat more than a pig in the sauna, walking nearly 7.3 miles every day )

Most of which was inherited through my parents. Despite ACTING desirable, genetically I'm a mess and will probably die pretty young. Doctors are saying it's amazing I don't have cancer already and I'm only 21.

I wouldn't oppose to a system much like we use in breeding pigs, though. We take someones strengths, and match them with someone who offsets their weaknesses. My 'better' pairing would be someone who is physically healthy and mentally stable. I could lend my strength and intelligence (work ethic and farming knowledge), and hope for a kid who's better than I am.

It's the same in goat breeding. You don't have to start with perfect stock. as long as the weaknesses of one goat are offset by the strengths of the other goat then you've got a chance of getting something better than what you already have. And through that fine tuning you can get pretty amazing animals in five or six generations if you know what you're doing.

>autism
>not a pro
Don't clank down on yourself on that. Autism can be both a pro and a con. The dissabillity to socialise (not implying anything) donsen't mean you can't contribute to society.

The inherant dissabillity and cancer probabillity is however, not good. Not at all. Still, seeing what you are proposing, we are not very different in our ideas. The problems come to your genes. And for that, I give you my over the internet, but still sincere, condolences. No one deserves the bad genes passed by irressponsibility. If what you say is true, you still are a very good person. 10/10 would play vidya with. (if I liked vidya)

Autsim isn't that bad, I'm high functioning and can fake it enough. Jobs are hard to find, though. Not a lot of people wanna give me the chance.

Yeah, my parents kinda screwed me over. But considering most my family has Diabetes and my blood pressure, cholesterol, and all thats just find I've kinda skimmed the top of the **** genes. My joints will probably go early, but I could be 'cured' if I took birth control, since it'd regulate the bottom factor (that being dysfunctional hormone output)

Fix the hormones and I'd lose weight, drop the risk for cancer nearly completely, and probably lose some of my bi-polar issues. Don't know why I don't do it already.

I am related to an autist. He's a fat(by his own coke drinking) faggot who dosen't do ****. Yet I know he is far smarter than me, sucking up everything he's interested in.

That hormone deal sounds really, really ******. I do feel sorry for you, and I'm going to post a "I know that feel" pic. But I also know that I don't honestly know that. Sometimes the cars our ancestors are dealing, get soiled on the way. I don't exactly know what to say to you brüder. The hole joint deal is really sad, since you are a farmer.


There are people born with the best of genes and possibilities, and don't do jack. And then there are people born with nothing, who still exells and follows the ideals. By purpose or not.

It is, but like I said. I do what I can. No point crying over spilled genetic material.

Since I have the flirting skills of a can of tuna, I think when I'm about 27 I'll prolly try the IVF route to have a kid or two. At 27 I'll see if I'm still healthy enough for a kid but not be over the 30 mark where the risk of genetic defects increases.

Plus sperm banks do mega screening on their donors. I'm hoping for something who may be the resulting of a Black hair/brown eyes X blonde hair/Blue eyes that way my children have a chance at being black hair/blue eyes. To me this combination is most pleasing.

I am not sure someone like you should have kids. Still it's an urge, and you may be a very good parent, seeing what you do and the strength of your character. It's important that you find a partner before you take on children. No child deserves to have only one parent.


Blond hair and blue eyes may be just a little bit nicer though, eh?

On contrary, single parent children have been shown to be no different than double parent families. Plus, if no suitable mate is found by the time frame I would rather raise a child alone as opposed to settling with the next Jo blow and having the relationship crumble around the child/ren would be highly damaging. Not to mention, the advantage of IVF's genetic screenings means no hidden birth defects. As well as they would screen my own DNA for defects and find someone who would offset them.

Eh, the blonde hair/Blue eyes is over played, for me. I have dirty blonde hair, so there would be a chance of Blonde/blue but black/blue is much more exotic and appealing to me. Blonde hair doesn't lend sun protection, either.

Eh. My kids would deal. It may suck ass but I think it'd be preferable to having a BAD relationship, you know? But again,I'm waiting until 27 to decide.

I'd find it minutely excotic because the most likely producer of one would be a half asian/half white father. So you'd have a 3/4ths white (Technically Native american, German, and French) 1/4th Asian child. But it's a gamble, really, on what you find. I think it'd be cute regardless.

My problem with this is, well my major problem with eugenics philosophy on the whole: it allows for no variables.

I have been born and raised in Southern USA and I can assure you a lot of these hard working farmers you refer to are far from ideal citizenry. They are often very ignorant, very intolerant, very anti-establishment, firmly independent, self-serving and unpredictable.

Again, far from what you'd want to build an entire nation's infrastructure on.

Likewise, as Icedangel said; many individuals that, by society's definitions have seemed worthless have proven capable of invaluable contributions to the human race as a whole.

As Yahtzee once said: "The problem with asking people what they want is, they don't know what they want. We base our desire on what we already know. If you ask us what we want we will base our answer on something we have already experienced."

My point being, someone such as Einstein may be able to provide a service or benefit to the human race, or a particular society that was simply never conceived before. In other words, basing a future system stricty on current perspectives threatens the future potential for new growth as such new variables may be destroyed before they can mature.

To sum up, as Einstein said: "If a fish is judged by its ability to climb trees, it will live its whole life feeling dumb." to paraphrase.

I appreciate your honestly, it aids an intellectual discussion.

That's definitely a razor thin line. I say that as more often than not the powers-that-be when it comes to the defining of and implementations of laws are unreliable at best, and morbidly ignorant at worst.

Thus, I question how such a policy would be fairly administered without threat of impeding the freedom of individual citizens on a much grander scale.

Though I do whole-heartedly agree that such individuals, be that down-syndrome, autism, etc. that aren't capable of "normal" or "proper" mental functioning, in particular in terms of understanding the consequences of their actions and basic social relations ought to be placed under stricter observation and restrictions, if not by the powers-that-be than by the legal guardians themselves.

I have two friends that are down-syndrome, I am more than happy to be a friend to them and help them feel more accepted and less alone.

Though when they are given unfettered access to phones they call me at work, at all hours of night, if they don't get an answer from me they call my family.

To the point that it's almost like harassment (albeit their intentions are good).

This then puts me in a catch 22 of sorts where I either: A. become the villain by telling them and their guardians that I don't want anymore calls from said individual, making me look like a horribly intolerant, cold-hearted person and potentially hurting their feelings severely. Or B. Just silently tolerate the behavior while seeking any subtle means I can to discourage the behavior and hope it corrects over time.

I feel that isn't fair to me, or to anyone else they do this to. The legal guardians ought to be restricting their phone access enough to avoid this in the first place. Such as the example you mention, how can a down-syndrome individual get pregnant? How grossly negligent were the legal guardians? It isn't the same as any teenager, we're discussing an individual that is physically incapable of proper decision making.

because your generation thinks that they should get everything handed to them

"WAH WAH I CANT GET A JOB WITH MY DEGREE IN PHILOSOPHY! BIG BUSINESSES SHOULD GIVE US MONEY!!! WAHHH"

That's because this generation had everything handed to them.

You're misinterpreting what I said. I, being part of this generation, have had a lot just given to me that my parents hadn't. Same goes for a lot of people - however, this is true for each new generation. The problem is, things that are given to each new generation tend to be more powerful/useful/faster than the previous with varying results.

Alright, here's a pretty unpopular opinion coming in: I feel like our generation blaming the previous generation for our problems is just as bad as the previous generation blaming us for their problems, or calling us "privileged" or "bratty" or whatever adjectives they use. Can we just stop pointing fingers and throwing blame around and actually work on our problems?

Defending ourselves and pointing blame for no reason are different. My ex's dad used to talk a lot about how our generation was screwed because nobody knew what losing was because we got trophies all the time and we'd never understood failure. **** us, right?

Cut to my days in recreational soccer where we got yearly "participation" trophies, or the fact that my school got rid of Valedictorians because it "made some kids feel bad".

Every student thought that policy was bull ****, but we have no control over how the generation above us treats us when we're kids. We can just call them on their **** when we're older.
