(First Draft) In the decades since the passing of the American Gilded Age, we have seen the degeneration of the American people and society on a number of levels. Physical degeneration has been manifest in the growing myopia epidemic with its numerous contributing factors, in the once-unthinkable epidemic of morbid obesity, and in more mundane areas, despite our eugenic progress in reducing the prevalence of a number of genetic conditions through a combination of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, embryonic selection, and genetic counseling. Social degeneration has been manifest in growing crime rates, the growing prevalence of gratuitous sex and violence in pop culture, and the decline of the family unit. Signs of our economic collapse are numerous and plainly obvious. How, then, can we identify and combat the causes of this degeneration and preserve both out People and our Republic? Clearly, we must take measures to identify those social groups which have been and continue to prove themselves of a parasitic and cancerous nature and find ways of either reforming them or eliminating them form the American populace. We must identify the genetic and environmental factors behind the physical degeneration of the American Volk and find solutions to these problems. We must determine, if education has proven insufficient, how we can either aid in the betterment of the nutrition and environment of the average citizen or find ways to not only cease such contraselective policies as reward these groups and individuals for the burden they place upon the most fit and productive members of society, but also seek to limit their effect and, if necessary, their numbers. We must make full use of our growing scientific knowledge to improve the form and fitness of our progeny, to combat disease and weakness in all its forms, and to preserve ourselves. We must make full use of social pressure and also the State (as well as more libertarian and softer methods of affecting social and individual behavior through the initiation of a system of a new system of rewards and hardships designed to mould the individual and society at large to a more perfect form) to better mould society to a fitter and more egalitarian form. And we must take measures to salvage the American economy and, with it, the hopes of a lasting American nation. It is imperative for all American citizens to consider, privately and in public, the best means of achieving these necessary ends.
