    At this time, anyone who cares to........ can begin with their thoughts regarding Eugenics. Even if you're not comfy calling and chatting with us, your comments may be brought into the discussion by one of the hosts.

    Eugenics, while not under this title, is found back as far as ancient Greece. Ancient greece - like a frat house stove.

    Indeed.
    Plutarch wrote that in Sparta, the Elders would inspect all newborns for defects. If they were found "ill", they would leave them in the bush in the mountains.

    “Offspring was not reared at the will of the father, but was

    taken and carried by him to a place called Lesche, where the elders of the tribes officially examined the
    infant, and if it was well-built and sturdy, they ordered the father to rear it, and assigned it one of the
    nine thousand lots of land; but if it was ill-born and deformed, they sent it to the so-called Apothetae, a
    chasm-like place at the foot of Mount Taygetus, in the conviction that the life of that which nature had not
    well equipped at the very beginning for health and strength, was of no advantage either to itself or the
    state.”

    Plato quoted Socrates saying that

    children with any defects should be killed
    : “For we must take care that we don’t overlook some

    defect in this thing that is entering into life; it may be something not worth bringing up, a wind-egg, a

    falsehood. What do you say? Is it your opinion that your child ought in any case to be brought up and not

    exposed to die? Can you bear to see it found fault with and not get into a rage if your first-born is stolen

    away from you?”
