edge.org and a sort on ideas about china

that remind me of Assad’s talk of a few years back, that Syria should imitate Chinese political life…

The idea of Eugenics is not, in my view, immoral. The immorality is in the limitations it creates, and the way prejudice devastates individual and social lives. While I agree that we do not have to respond moraly to the Chinese attempts at super-han-people making, I think that perhaps it is an opportunity to learn how to make our societies more welcoming and responsive to individuals. This might not be a universal “correct” approach, however, being a bit more like China, just because of some temporal economic circumstances, is a bit of a poor excuse to introduce authoritarianism via the back door, no?
