Eugenics is known as selective breeding in order to produce the most desirable traits and eliminating the negative ones. It has been a controversial subject in science for many years. Its negative implications mostly come from its early form in the United States by forced sterilization of women and men with “undesirable” traits and its later use in Nazi Germany during World War II. Modern eugenicists argue that new age eugenics does not seek to eradicate unwanted traits but instead improve the species making people as intelligent and healthy as possible (Taylor 114). Modern eugenics is divided into two categories: positive eugenics—the improvement one’s own genetic make-up—and negative eugenics—the removal of genetic disorders.
“Upbringing is the largest cause of racism”-Anonymous. Even if we allow yourself to get to know some of them, this will always be in the back of your mind” (laurenmay123). Just because one is of different color, have a big nose, ears, head or any other part of the body that society does not consider normal, society instantly are labels them. Some examples of labeling just because of the way people look are “mentally ill”, “retarded”, “nigger” and so forth. This entire name calling will affect someone’s self-esteem and they believe it to the point where they cannot or will not better themselves.
Finally, genetic engineering can destroy one’s sense of individuality and spoil God’s plan of making all people unique. Because of these reasons, genetic engineering should be stopped. It is a bad science making a dangerous alliance with a bad business. Works Cited Bereano, Phillip L. “Body and Soul: the Price of Biotech. '; Seattle Times.

Both creators, ultimately lost control of their creations; representing their loss of power and both creators attempting to play God faced death from their creations. Human nature embodies rationality and passion and also undeniably, the lust for power and control. Humans and “artificial” humans are seen to convey these elements. However, challenging the heirarchy will only lead to corruption and destruction of the individual and society.
Moreover, as Elshtain said: "technology is rapidly gutting our ethics", and it is our ethics. Finally use intuitive sense: It just feels wrong. People might recreate Hitler or some other evil. Whatever it takes, if we suffer in the short run we may prosper in the long run. The benefits to society, in my eyes, far outreach any moral, ethical or religious dilemma that we might face as a society concerning this issue.
Many people wonder how it would be like to meet someone just like themselves. Cloning is a copy of another organism that has the exact same DNA as the original. Most people have strong moral views that using an ordinary body cell from someone who has already lived to reconstructing a new person would be intrinsically wrong. It would be immoral to clone a human being now or any time soon. Cloning is a social sin because it damages society and violates the dignity of human life.
Abstract This paper overviews major ideas surrounding Eugenics including past, present, and future events that have shaped the human race. The first major sign of Eugenics started with the feeble Carrie Buck, who was sent to an institution for sterilization. But, it did not end there. As seen in Nazi Germany during World War 1, the national goal was to form a perfect race in order to exterminate individuals perceived as weaker links. Individuals such as Jews, and Homosexuals.
The reason why it is so tragic all relies on the fact that ambition took ordinary people and changed them into murderous machines without reason. Similarly, today the ambition that people feel in their hearts, that unrecognizable passion unconsciously forces people to always want more. Like for example, a cheater is willing to do whatever it takes for them to get on top. MacBeth was never satisfied with what he already had, neither was Lady MacBeth. Their actions lead to a domino effect of destruction, because is not only affected their mental health but affected other people’s lives as well.
Therefore, Technology is bad for alternatives way for people because it replace humanity. As you can see, Technology plays a big role in our lives in Montag's society and our society too. You see technology is an antagonist to nature because it gives us too much tittivation. It manipulates our mind and it changes who we are. Therefore, Ray Bradbury overall message/opinion of Fahrenheit 451 is how technology is bad for alternative ways for people.
The underlying factor I found in reading this article, is humans crave power over others and their surrounding world due to insecurity. Since many are not comfortable with them and can't face their utter powerlessness and insignificance in relation to the universe, we use false power and control as a means to apply usefulness and significance. This leads to certain elites gaining control over masses, and using the masses as a threat to other elites, all a grand scheme evoking evil; which is why UFO cults are on the rise, for there is very little sacred righteous though left on earth, leading many to call upon benevolent, enlightened beings of extraterrestrial origin, in order to ask for salvation from the evil empires of earth. The other themes I found throughout the article relate to the messages received from the ET's. The first is the ET's will save us upon the coming of earth time Armageddon.
