I feel you. No way in hell I'm willfully handing over my DNA to these companies.
23 and me and the other popular websites are using people's DNA to create profiles to catch criminals in cold cases. They get one to match to a Brother, Sister, Mom or Dad and then 20 years later you get a knock on the door. People volunteer their DNA all the time because they want to find out if their Granddaddy was in WWI totally forgetting that you are now in a database and they have all they need to know about ya.

I'm too old to worry about all that now and I'm not worried about felons in my family but many people are getting their doors busted down for stuff they did 20 years ago simply because their Brother wanted to research his ancestry.

Because of the title this thread is starting to talk about eugenics, that was never the intent and I think there is a big difference between eugenics and making sure someone can be a fit parent prior to having a kid :/

^ Do you know how to edit your title and take the word Eugenics out of it ? You could rename it " Parents that suck " " Our children are doomed " or People that should not have kids " or something like that. You can change the title or simply omit a word out of it.

Agreed, I didn't mean to drag this down the National Socialist path... simply meant let's stop letting so many inept people have kids, and we need to slow everyone's roll on ploppin' regardless of race, socioeconomic status, etc.

Race or whatever dosent even need to be involved at all, minimum requirements like a drivers license, have a job , a somewhat stable home, say have to be in a place atleast 2 years, pass a drug screen, simple shit that anybody serious about raising a life should be able to do reguardless of race

That reminds me of what @Neuroborean was saying about blood from newborns

In New Jersey now, the police run blood dna samples of babies

I just found the tweet I saw the other day with an article link

whatever... my Nurse friend.
but I don't want super-rich jewish (nor any other race) moguls to root about my genes...
They'll always have an social excuse (normally order and safety and lately: health) to put their agenda into an acceptable POV.

So, the end of the story is that they see transhumanism as unavoidable (convergence point), it's clear that they are into it, so if the most powerful corporations are pushing on that direction and people only "applause" or look somewhere else... it surely will happen

I'm NOT in favor of governmental control of reproduction (abortion bans, for instance).

But I will say this:
In my 63 years amongst people I've noticed that those who are least competent to be parents tend to have the most kids.

It's fucked up.

Full disclosure: I've gotten two women pregnant quite by accident. One chose abortion, the other had the baby and gave it up for adoption at birth. In both cases, the decision was 100% the woman's.
As it should be.

Yep that whole Ancestry thing is a total con. The copy of your DNA is worth way more than some shitty genealogy platform and can sell it to whoever they want, you have to wonder what malfeasance this will help enable in the future?

People who have the sense to even think about issues like overpopulation really need to outbreed the dumb fucks if our species is to stand a chance now.

Yea population control is something that eventually we will need to take a hard serious look at, I’m not to knowledgeable on the overall output of resources vs what’s needed to sustain and how much further we can push it, I am speaking strictly from a making sure a certain quality of life is assured for a child prior to conception

By the way, I think most of stuff about "overpopulation" it's a stupid idea to be honest, the problem it's not really "overpopulation" it's, much more accurately:
"Overpopulation according to our current model culture of overconsumption and unbridled capitalism."
there's a lot of Earth and abandoned fertile soils, people don't want to live like we should, and plow their own little lands. Or built their own self-sustainable model of living. They like stupid cities with stupid (totally unnecessary) technology and "trendy civilizational progress".

That's the real problem
the super-corporations (nor the common idiot that uses them as "normal") are not really into green anything, they will keep sustaining and pushing for their model of globalism and they will keep pushing to use their synthetic shit, they don't want people living in self-sustainable, decrecentists models. They actually hate that, but they are now pushing a fake "green capitalism" of eating insects and fungal meat that they will obviously monopolize. Also not changing energetic models but just charging a lot more for the same...

In anycase I think they're pushing so hard, at least on the West to use "magic potions" and different cultural techniques that will end up in the total opposite situation, as some people (that I despise personally, but that's another story) are honestly sharing with the masses:



"Overpopulation" it's a political argument to fuck up western populations, nothing more.

This thread seems to be going every which way except was it was suppose to be…parental licensing(or something) to make sure a kid isn’t being born into chaos and doomed to fail, or should I say statistically likely doomed to fail…not complaining, I say let threads run wild like a natural convo, just want to make the intent of the thread clear
