What I Heard in History Class
As we learned about Selective Breeding (that is, breeding animals for progressive or beneficial traits), I remarked that this was ethical in every animal other than humans, wherein it’s considered facism and intense prejudice. I never thought that another person would have the practical, although fleeting, thought to support that sort of human breeding. But, just right by me, a girl remarked, “We should definitely do that with humans. We don’t want the idiots of the world to make more idiots.”
I told her that was facist.
"I don’t care. I can’t stand all the idiots running around."
I’m glad for one thing there … that that genuinely felt wrong when another person said it. Ethics always override.. that’s good.
