I was a bit disappointed that point wasn’t really elaborated on. That said, I freely admit moral philosophy is a weak point of mine (I described my position as a “quagmire” and “prison” — hardly a ringing endorsement), so I think most of my commentators were trying to pull me towards a particular school of moral philosophy. But just because I can’t advance a sound argument either way doesn’t mean I can’t investigate someone else’s — I detected the tautology inherent in eugenicist positions from a mile away.
Thanks for the contribution. I encourage you to sign up to FTB. Open comments sections are mostly abuse or unhelpful, and one of the reasons the discussion was so lengthy and detailed on my post on FTB was precisely because I can moderate and call foul when the insults start flying. ^^
