We often hear that right? This is the one argument against abortion that makes any sense. Not that I agree, but this is the only thing worth addressing.
The idea is we got to presume that all humans life are equal. If we don’t, then we’ll start getting it wrong all the way, and some smart, productive individual humans will be presumed inferior and slaughtered.
And that seems to make perfect sense. From genocide in Ottoman against Armenian, or genocide against Jews in the Holocaust, or genocide against the bourgeois in China communist, and a bunch of pogroms against Chinese in southeast Asia.
There is something about government, especially democratic ones. Some group of people tends to be victims of genocide. The victims tend to be some minorities that are on average smarter and more industrious.
We still have a more subtle genocide in US. The governments make having children artificially costly for the rich.
Imagine if a rich, smart man get married and divorce and have children? The amount of alimony and child support such men pay will be much higher than if he were poor. In most cases, it’s very tricky to settle that before conception or before marriage. It can be done but tricky. Many such men commit suicide. In any case, the rich and smart wouldn’t make too many children.
There is a simple explanation.
Imagine if I am a dictator. Say I collect 100 poor kids or teenagers. I told them run. The one running the fastest will get money, girls, wives, slaves, bla bla. I’ll kill the slowest 50.
What would the kids do?
They would run for a while.
When they are running, they will learn that many of them will not be the one running the fastest. There are other kids, due to genetic advantage, will outrun them.
Running and winning is not the way to win for most of those kids. However, the penalty is huge. If they lost, they die. So what do you think those kids will do?
They’ll kill the kid in front.
That’ll make perfect sense right?
That dictator is God or mother nature. The kids are just us or our genes to be more exact.
And that’s the kind of game all living beings have been playing and playing. This is why we have war.
War is not always the solution. The Bonobo lives in peace. The Bonobo have orgies all the time. The Bonobo themselves are not at war. Their sperms are. Each Bonobo have big balls that produce massive amount of sperms. So instead of killing each other they out produce each others’ sperm.
Humans are somewhere between Bonobo and Chimps. Humans’ males’ balls are smaller. We don’t win by producing more sperm. We win by attracting more women.
Bonobo achieves peace by changing the games. Basically they no longer “win” by killing other males. They win by producing more sperms than other men. Then they just fuck and fuck and fuck and fuck and well, you know. Those sperms got to be put on the fighting front right?
The way we evolve, when we’re not at war, we’re in a race.
I used to think being a high IQ means I live in easy mode. I learn faster. I can learn whole college physics and Math in months.
Something bothers me. Why do I have to learn non-math stuff in schools? I don’t have an edge in learning memorizing courses. It’s useless in real life.
Why do schools look at your grade in school? Think about it. Different schools have different standards. So your grades in school means nothing right. You can’t compare an A in one school with a C in another.
I graduate thinking that schools are just a nightmare. Surely the market would take care of things. I picked computer science as a major. There are a low supply and high demand for programmers in this world. So, programmers earn more than bricklayers. Really?
Not really. In US the government, for example, allow programmers to get in with H1 visa and pretty much protect bricklayers from having to compete with foreigners. In my country programmers weren’t valued as much.
There is a loophole around this that I took advantage, but that will be a topic of another article.
Now. If you do a job that’s high in demand and low in supply, you make more money. Right? Wrong. We got income taxes. Curiously if people knew that you’ll make more money, you will still pay higher taxes. For example, society does not consider a poor college student eating ramen poor. They consider the college student rich. They consider some bricklayers with wives and kids to be poor. They’ll tax those single students and give money to those with children.
How do you get a job? Can you just post your IQ in your resume? Can’t do that. It’s politically incorrect. Again, as usual, justified by nonsense.
Finally, after going through all those, you can still just aim to get girls. Finally. Gene pool survival. Easy right?
No. If you’re rich, how do you get girls? The easiest way is to just pay for it. Ups, it’s illegal.
Okay, marry them then. Be careful. Remember about the alimony and child support?
If you’re just smart and count on normal economic theory to get rich, you’ll be lucky not to end up like the Jews during Holocaust. Those people are very smart. Chosen by God himself, I’ve heard. Most of them were slaughtered. You would be death too unless you learn from their mistakes.
All those strange anti-competitive laws are there for a reason. They don’t want you to win. They want to win instead. Most people are like the slowest 50 kids in the race. They want you death.
Unless you kill them first or change the game.
Being the smartest species in the world, humans have been changing the game again and again.
Currently, we presume that everyone has the same chance of winning the running race. In fact, we self fulfill those ideas by so many ways.
But how far can we pull this out? Imagine you have a 148 IQ and you are competing against someone with 85 IQ. Let’s see which one of us will have higher paying jobs and make more money and get more girls and produce more children and grandchildren?
Do you think those 85 IQ guys will, vote libertarianism and believe that capitalism is fair?
One way or another, we will evolve. Most will go extinct, some will reproduce.
Wouldn’t it be better if the greatest among us is the one producing the best service to the most customers?
That’ll be very consistent with capitalism too. Capitalism is quite eugenic. However, that’s just not going to be where the game is. Most people just don’t like pure capitalism. So you just have to make the best on what’s your situation.
The best way to deal with those that will not be productive anyway is to simply ensure they’re never born.
No. Abortion and free contraception will not cause genocide, at least not against the best and brightest and most industrious among humans.
To the opposite, not giving them free, legal, or sometimes mandatory contraception, will lead to genocide.
What’s the difference between abortion and infanticide? If we allow abortion, what about if we latter allow murder? Well. The younger the victim, the more politically correct it will be. So yea, free contraception will be the way to go. After that free abortion and mandatory abortion for welfare parasites. That alone should be enough to eliminate poverty in the most rich country.
