I'm not saying it's bad just calling it out for what it is. For years I've heard people talk about eugenics, and now I see them calling it "CRISPR babies". Almost like their trying to rebrand it lol. If used for the right reasons eugenics can be a good thing. But I think we both know that rich people will end up getting the best of this technology and using it for themselves and their offspring, making the class divide even bigger. They will be able to pick and choose the traits they want like being more intelligent, physically stronger, etc. It's a very slippery slope.

Of course they are going to rebrand it. Eugenics as a word has so much negative baggage this may be the first time i didnt get downvoted to hell when i said its not a bad thing.

And thats why we have to push for this technology to be available to everyone, so the class divide wouldnt get so wide. The rich is going to use it whether we like it or not, the only way we can equalize the field is if we use it ourselves.
