Indians are Trying Eugenics
, there are a lot of potential problems with it.
The TL;DR is that this is likely to become commercially available to the rich long before it's possible for the poor. And if you think going from lower-class to upper-class is hard now, imagine doing it when the upper class are guaranteed to be stronger, smarter, and more attractive than you in every way while you still had to play the genetic lottery.
So yeah, unless we can figure out how to regulate it, it'll improve the lives of the top few percent, while the 'class gap' turns into an insurmountable class WALL instead. Which will result in socioeconomic problems that will ultimately drag the upper class down just as much.
it would work as soon as we got rid of the 'family' and 'class' thinking and got a more hive(y) mindset as long as our kin is the most important to us (as opposed to humanity as a whole) there's always the (reasonable) fear of being left behind do you want your shitty asshole neighbour to have superhuman offspring that'll eventually decide your line of ancestry isn't worth keeping?
it always comes down to egocentric human nature and being against it as a whole is a way to make that kinda work for everyone not just yourself
see it as a if i can't have it no one can but that's okay way (everyone has to agree on the that's okay part though)
Well take a look at dogs, they were the playthings of eugenics, make a dog with specific traits and call it a breed, then only let it mate with like dogs and watch the genetic degrading commence.
So scientifically engineered eugenics would result in us having no option but to inbreed because alien people want to buy humans with certain traits? I don't think your argument makes any sense outside of pets.
In fact, one benefit of eugenics is that we could breed out weaknesses in humans, kind of like how mutts are genetically superior to purebreds, if it makes sense to you that way.
Let me elaborate my point, people knew about inbreeding, so they took efforts to make sure to limit familial coupling when breeding dogs, they wanted to keep the desired (i.e. the best) traits without making an inbred mess. But they didn't know that the pure act of selecting specifically for those traits would have the same effect.
Biology, especially genetic manipulation, is more art than science, and unexpected consequences happen often.
I can understand the point you are trying to make, but the entire goal of eugenics is to avoid negative traits and literally breed them out of humans. It's the opposite of purebred dogs.
Based on that, would eugenics still have a chance to introduce negative characteristics? Yes. But based on the fact that nobody stands to profit from selling humans who look good but are actually messed up genetically, I do not think that negative traits would be a concern since they would just be found and removed through more selective breeding.
Humans did this indirectly. Why do you think there are that many black athletes in sports like running, and that many white people in weightlifting? Cultures have different ideals and needs. And accordingly, people will be bred with certain traits.
Yes but that is just uncontrolled evolution due to certain features being found more desirable based on culture. Just imagine how much better it could be done if it were to be scientifically engineered by people who understood genomes.
I am not rebutting eugenics. The big problem i see with eugenics and gen alteration is that we will make people to fit a certain criteria. What if they fail in that criteria?
Then they wouldn't be included in the eugenics program? As much as I'd like country wide eugenics, I don't believe that that is what is being discussed here. Just a small focus group trying to accomplish something through selective breeding. Doesn't sound so bad when it's said like that, does it?
