OK, I am seeking ASFers opions on the following and am not endorsing it. It may be somewhat controversial but i am interested to know others thoughts.
This afternoon i was coming home on the bus in peak hour. in the middle of the standing area was a family of 2 adults a toddler and a child of about 8. Lets just say they were 'lower class' for lack of better wording. But you could see all the people surronding them just cringe with the way they treated their children. They were swearing constantly loud enough to be heard by all etc etc.
Now the following may sound draconian or even 'communist' but here is my question:
Would society be better off, if there was a criteria put on those who were allowed to reproduce?
Not based upon an intelligence or looks, but perhaps on something such as contribution to society throughout your life. This way creative people who are not materially rich, but have far greater comprehension of some things than people like myself, would not be discriminated against.
Perhaps before you were to have kids you had to send a letter detailing why and work history/contributions/designs/creative work somewhere so it was not based on personality or looks. Obviously i have not thought in detail about it.
I am very interested to hear opinions, and apologise if this blog offends anyone.
