Eugenics

What is it and is some form of it inevitable?

Based on common knowledge of eugenics, most people would agree that it is a horrible thing to implement. However, in this episode, the SPP team takes on some of the more nuanced details in an effort to impartially explore the idea. One of the things we address is what prompted people during certain time periods to pursue society-wide eugenics. We also explore future movements in this regardĀ as they pertain to advances in our understanding of and ability to manipulate genetic code.
