Sixteen Sacramento area veterinary clinics and county animal shelters held the annual Spay Day for qualified low income residents. Below is a quote:

“Spaying and neutering dogs and cats leads to better health and improved behavior, and reduces the number of animals entering area shelters.”

I started thinking that if you reworded the quote to read: “Spaying and neutering men and women leads to better health and improved behavior, and reduces the number of people entering the prison system.”

Society could control crime and rampant low income population growth through a program of this type for human beings. Any young individual that showed signs of unlawfullness and/or anti-social behavior would automatically be spayed or neutered.

The amount of money saved through the program would be tremendous. Just think, dramatically reduced welfare programs, reduced court and prison costs, reduced mental and physical assistance programs…I could go on and on. The world would become a eutopia of sorts where only the socially responsible would reside.

I do admit that some, through no fault of their own would have to be helped through life but the cost savings would be so great that the few requiring assistance would become a drop in the bucket compared to what we currently spend on those that choose not to be part of the functioning human race.

The cost savings could be put into science programs to solve the problem of those born without full mental or physical capabilities that would more than likely cause them to be a burden on the rest of us.

I’m guessing there are those out there that agree with me and will say so. I’m also guessing there are those out there that agree with me but are afraid to say so because they have been taught/brainwashed into believing it is our duty to take care of those that choose not to participate or as they say “those less fortunate”. Well guess what? My program is taking care of those less fortunate. Rejoice, we now have the answer!

Tedstor took the words right out of my mouth!

A local radio talk show host was discussing a related subject this morning. He was taking the position that parents should be held responsible for the criminal acts of their minor children. His argument was that too many parents just don’t put forth the proper effort to raise their kids, and that holding them responsible would force them to do better.

Well, he’s right about there being too many bad parents out there. But what about when the parents do everything in their power to raise their children properly, and the kids still get into serious trouble? It’s not right to punish those people, is it?

Instead of forcing people to be sterilized, maybe we could just offer them a free carton of cigarettes and a case of beer to sign up voluntarily.

I don’t know how much experience you have with teenagers but that would pretty much guarantee the end of the human race.

If you believe in your own idea, you have to set the example. Be the vanguard. Be the symbol!

Maybe some of the violent crime is chemical related. No, not the self induced kind although that may have some validity to that argument. The chemical I am referring to is lead. Some folks like to point out the similarities between our times and the Roman’s time. Lead is one of those similarities.

Sorry if this Hijacks your thread on fixing humans. Pun was intended. I didn’t think your suggestion was actually put out there to be taken seriously, just more of a tongue in cheek, what if proposition.
I think there is evidence to suggest that our brain is a high functioning chemical computer. When we do get to the point where we can redirect psychosis, it will be with chemical engineering, more that psychoanalysis.

I’m in favour of a penalty points system where you get issued with x amount of points per crime committed, as well as the standard court punishments.
The points would be on a sliding scale – ranging from 1 to (say) 12, where 1 is for a speeding ticket and 10
is murder.
If you get to 8 your castrated, if you get to 12 your hung.
The theory would probably need a bit of tweeking after it became law, but I think it’s fair on everyone.
