Peter Csillag -- the Blogging Tories' own "Mr. Eugenics" -- takes another shot at selling the notion that bad people shouldn't be allowed to pollute the gene pool he likes swimming in:
The philosophy is basic; when one cannot govern themselves accordingly and legally, they suspend their right to reproduce and parent in society to the state. It's good to think that those who can't possibly raise good children wouldn't do so: the mentally imbalanced, drug dealers, prostitutes, etc. Rather than have unwanted children filling up orphanages and being given into cycles of despair and misery... well, we wouldn't have them at all.
Actually, Peter has a point here -- why produce "unwanted" children if there's a way to prevent that? In fact, I think that has potential for a dynamite marketing campaign. Now we just need a snappy slogan to go with it. Something pithy, something catchy, maybe something with a punchy meter to it. What might that possibly be?
If I think of something, I'll get back to you.
