“The industrial revolution eliminated natural selection, and we failed to continue natural selection with eugenics.” – Curt Doolittle/Eric Danelaw
This is absolutely correct. Until we restore soft eugenics in some capacity, as a means of safeguarding the high trust commons which has taken thousands of years to develop through the slow culling of the underclasses, we will sink ever further.
Thanks to human agency, with its ability to increase, we had the capacity to achieve it at all…but also thanks to the natural starting point of human agency being incredibly low, whilst it takes incredible work to develop it, any hard work and good social results can be undone in as little as a generation or two if it isn’t consistently safeguarded or built upon further.
We have failed to protect our agency.
