Yeah, we need some genetic diversity.

Lulz - this reminds me of Brave New World. They tried a society with all Alpha Pluses - the society failed because everyone applied for higher jobs / promotions and no one desired to do the "blue-collar" work.

We need people of all diversities, intelligence, and work ethic in society for it to run properly. 'Tis the truth.

I find that many smart people are lazy. They find the way to get the most work done for the least effort.

For example, if I can find a way to clean my house and 1/2 the time, I both smart and lazy. If I can find a way to do a 40 hour job in 30 hours, all the better for me (unless I'm paid hourly, of course).

I have a shirt that says "Organized people are just too lazy to look for stuff".

I'd use efficiency over laziness.

Greater the efficiency the more you can afford to be lazy modern humans in contrast to our ancestors are lazy bums (I should point out this only applies to those in developed regions and even then those in less developed areas still have an easier life than our hairy, short, bulky, cave dwelling, hunter gatherer, ancient African brethren) thank you domestication, mass production, and improved medical knowledge for allowing modern man to be lazy . . .

Yes, all those poor lazy people are simply ahead of their time, they are more evolved and designed for a more advanced society.

What if they cannot afford to support their offspring? Should they still have the rights as people who can?

"Rights" depend on what moral system you believe in.

Under utilitarianism, all women who intend to reproduce should instead be impregnated with the sperm of the smartest man in society.

This would obviously be determined by a game show called "Who wants to impregnate America?"

Yes, unless you believe that rights are for sale, that you can simply buy.

And if that man happens to have a genetic disorder that hasn't revealed itself yet, half the population may end up disabled.

Then the offspring will have to bear with the consequences.
