I'm not convinced that selling vacation time and pleasure is the best approach here. A bit to me, me, me and poor preparation for the responsibilities. Brave New World had a solution for this that would probably work for Denmark.Posted by chuck at October 5, 2015 5:01 PM

Ah, if only we had paid more attention to Eugenics. Unfortunately the Nazis gave it a bad name.**
Eugenics is a set of beliefs and practices which aims at improving the genetic quality of the human population. It is a social philosophy advocating the improvement of human genetic traits through the promotion of higher rates of sexual reproduction for people with desired traits (positive eugenics), or reduced rates of sexual reproduction and sterilization of people with less-desired or undesired traits (negative eugenics), or both.
Alternatively, gene selection rather than "people selection" has recently been made possible through advancements in gene editing.
The modern history of eugenics began in the early 20th century when a popular eugenics movement emerged in Britain and spread to many countries, including the United States and most European countries. In this period, eugenic ideas were espoused across the political spectrum. Consequently, many countries adopted eugenic policies meant to improve the genetic stock of their countries. Such programs often included both "positive" measures, such as encouraging individuals deemed particularly "fit" to reproduce, and "negative" measures such as marriage prohibitions and forced sterilization of people deemed unfit for reproduction. People deemed unfit to reproduce often included people with mental or physical disabilities, people who scored in the low ranges of different IQ tests, criminals and deviants, and members of disfavored minority groups.
**The eugenics movement became negatively associated with Nazi Germany and the Holocaust—the murder by the German state of approximately 11 million people—when many of the defendants at the Nuremberg trials attempted to justify their human rights abuses by claiming there was little difference between the Nazi eugenics programs and the US eugenics programs.
As an aside, many of the solutions to the Muslim troubles suggest that a military National Socialist movement will provide the manpower to combat the hoards of terrorists/religious fanatics. It has also been suggested that the quasi-military forces be used to purge our government of unpatriotic politicians. That is another conversation.

SpecOp: be careful what you wish for. Danish girls in a steam bath are like gorillas in the mist.
When they finish with you they'll stack your bones in the shower.
