Eugenics - The practice of allowing certain populations to produce offspring whilst actively preventing other populations from doing so
"In a world to achieve freedom, we must withhold freedom from others. That is the greatest irony of Man"
"Man often acts ruthless when he acts purely on logic, and Man often destroys itself when it acts purely on emotion"
- Emperor Cacao, Emperor of the Latte Cocoa Empire
Chapter One - High Heaven has a Filter like your Coffee Machine
Everybody is familiar with the concept of Heaven right? Only those who are worthy are allowed to go in. Those who aren't will suffer eternal damnation. Despite what ever religious concept you have there is a population that has their rights limited and are not allowed the practice of leaving a legacy. A practice that seems universal across all nations but is forgotten when limited to this certain population.
Which population you might ask? Well, they are PRISONERS.
Chapter Two - Used Coffee Grounds go to the Garbage, Bad People go to Jail
No right to vote, no privacy, no financial security, no freedom, no freedom of speech, no sexual release, no relationships, no home. These people have been one of the most historically looked down people in society. Yes, even lower than black people. Their rights have been taken away and they aren't treated like humans. And the biggest facet is that of those prisoners who have no children, but wish to have. Is it immoral to prevent a prisoner from having access to sexual relations. Why should a child cease to ever be created because of laws. The same way a son isn't guilty for his fathers doings, why would a non-conceived baby have to pay for his fathers crime. And why is this form of Eugenics not talked about often. People talk about the Holocaust was a facet of eugenics, this facet was by actively killing the entire population as soon as possible. These people were also imprisoned and not allowed to reproduce. The reason simply being they were Jewish. Is there ever a crime that deserves the punishment of preventing you from having children?
Chapter Final - You will drink your Coffee Black as punishment. No worries, Black Coffee was part of my rehabilitation in Prison.
Overall, this prison system of punishment is detrimental to society as a whole. Just because some small minority of people actually live a better life when they leave prison, it doesn't mean it's a successful system. A successful system wouldn't remove people from society and make them commit the same crime again. People are different and react so. Not everybody likes black coffee, some people like creamers of different flavors. Some people don't even like coffee. Teaching children to care for others and feel empathy for others and realize that their actions might hurt them is a better deterrent than the fear of prison. Thievery, murder, rape, these crimes are committed because people don't care about the people they are hurting. Prison isn't a deterrent to them, since they obviously do them anyways. In the future I hope we can evolve in a way to actually rehabilitate and punish people for immoral crimes. One that lets them become better than they were for society, not one that makes them incompatible.
