Can Human Evolution Be Controlled? Sure, we do it all the time. Every time we choose a mate, every time our species favors blue eyes, or black hair, or living in a cold/warm/temperate climate. But intentionally? Sure, we do that all the time too.
It seems how people smell doesn’t much enter into it.
On to other things: The Baby Boomers aren’t responsible for all the world’s ills. Who knew? As a member of the youngest cohort of that aging generation, I heartily agree; only individuals, not groups, can bear responsibility. There are no group responsibilities, no group rights, only individuals.
From our good friend Jillian Becker: Raising a mercenary army of racists on public funds. One has to wonder of what possible use are classes in “white privilege” and such racist (yes, racist, in the truest sense of the word) are. Educational institutions are, or at least should be, tasked with one purpose: To produce young adults with marketable skills, so that they may become responsible, productive citizens. Bullshit classes like this do nothing to that end; they only inculcate a new generation of racists.
Yes, goddammit, racists. They are teaching young people to judge their fellows by the color of their skin, not by the content of their character. That is fucking racism. It’s despicable, and taking money to teach such tripe is fraud.
Walter Williams has some thoughts on the topic as well.
On a brighter note: Want a $25,000 taco?
On that note, we return you to your Thursday, already in progress.
