A couple of weeks ago I asked is it time we stopped certain people breeding. Although my post in no way suggested selective breeding to eliminate certain races, people of low intelligence or those with physical defects, as anticipated a couple of people of the type that either comment withourt reading or read without understanding, accused me of advocating eugenics.
Well I am not the only liberal intellectual who is prepared to face up to the fact that one of the great causes of environmental deterioration is that their are just too many people. We have to reverse population growth. Not eugenics, that is something completely different, not fascism – again different, but simple common sense. If people show they are not prepared to reproduce responsibly they must be stopped from reproducing. Even if we abolish religion now, it will take a generation for education to do the job so drastic action is needed.
Read Madeline Bunting’s article in the Guardian and consider the consequences of allowing people to breed indiscriminately.
