The Gene Pool debate very quickly got mired in the poverty issue. As usual it was suggested that people can't be held resposible for their lifestyle choices, decisions or behaviour. The government is responsible. But is it really? Let's take it right back to basics and imagine that we had a scrupulously fair government that passed laws that said everyone was equal, couldn't own property and must be paid exactly the same amount of money irrespective of their job or role in society or otherwise. That would be fair, right? Nobody would be poor any more or be disadvantaged by societal factors.
We'd all be happy.
