Of course we could selectively breed people just like we selectively breed dogs, etc. Of course #2, however, is it's not sure we need a lot of pretty people with hip dysplasia. 

 

In any case by no stretch of the term is selective breeding of positive traits necessarily related to the term eugenics--which has stressed preventing negative breeding--as it has come to be known today. Selectively breeding for specific traits by no means means that one must build concentration camps. For example, someone could set up a foundation that would pay genetically picked people large sums of money to get together and make babies voluntarily only if they so desired.

 

Free market solution that no libertarian could possibly be against.

Being libertarian means that people can do what they want. What is doesn't mean is that you don't have an opinion on things...

 

For instance, if you want to take drugs Danny, it's up to you. I however, wouldn't recommend it.

 

(Danny, is a Caddyshack reference BTW)
