What are we going to do with the stupid?
We don’t laugh at people’s DNA any more. Or refuse to give people with certain genes, but not others, jobs. Nor do we enslave them or prevent them from voting. And if we do, it is generally accepted that we are doing a Very Bad Thing indeed. And rightly so. This is new, of course. Just two generations ago it was perfectly acceptable to mock and discriminate against those of different skin colour and ethnicity, the very small and the very tall, the brawny and the weak, in my country, people, even quite nice people, talked openly about ‘jewboys’ and ‘darkies’, ‘shortares’ and worse. Those condemned (perhaps) by their DNA to be homosexual were not only discriminated against by the hoi polloi, but by the law.
