Eugenics is the belief and practice of improving the genetic quality of the human population. The immediate reaction most people have to a mention of the word "eugenics" is "That's a tool used to oppress and even eliminate minority races." However, all of us who procreate, or have friends who do, try to practice eugenics in a way. We see or hear of a potential mate and tell ourselves or our friend, 'Ah, c'mon, you can do better for yourself and your kids. You want to pass on good genes, don't you?'" Within the micro-community of one's family then, one is attempting to practice eugenics. Execution of those who perpetrate aggression can also contribute to eugenic progress.
