Eugenics

At one point, the Supreme Court felt that forced sterilization would be a good thing for this country:

"It is better for all the world," Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote in the court's decision in Buck v. Bell, "if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes."

Of course, I'd be happy with one of two things:

  1. The ability to sterilize stupid people. (And I think you know what I mean when a say stupid people...I bitch about them enough in this blog).
  2. The ability to sterilize everybody, everywhere. No exceptions.

Please note: I am not advocating some kind of eugenics program to create a master race of any kind. I want either fewer stupid people, or no people at all. Is that asking too much?
