After spending an entire day in a college administration building getting three basic things done and dealing with the slowest, most inane office workers, I now am in full support of eugenics.

So, I'm a Libertarian Anarchist on almost every issue except for eugenics. How long will it take to institute this, and is there a free-market way? Can we have donors, or should we sell mints and use the profits to castrate the weak?

Under our current state, would I have a realistic chance of winning the election for President or an appointment to Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services?

Let me know, thanks.

Eugenics doesn't really work. The genes for the potentiality of almost all behaviour are carried by each individual, it is only a combination of alleles that dictates behaviour. In other words, if you are trying to eliminate genetic behavioural characteristics or diseases which work only with 2 recessive genes, you aren't going to have any luck.

Mandatory genetic screening of the embryo for possible behavioural patterns is what you are looking for, not eugenics.

Wouldn't really work unless every single human participates in the war, and even so, it would select for characteristics which are totally not in line with what we want in a modern society.
