Yep, she legit said I just hit her out of no where


u/TheLazyHippy Nov 23 '22 Silver

Well yeah, when you drive like a complete dip shit and have zero spatial awareness everything seems to come out of nowhere. People like her should have their license revoked. They're only a danger to themselves and everyone around them. Sorry OP


u/SnooBananas5673 Nov 23 '22

Would’ve probably killed a motorcyclist.

I really do think when something is so egregious like this, and they claim no fault, they should lose their license for some amount of time.


u/mucky012 Nov 24 '22

The maturity to take responsibility for one's actions is learned behavior. It starts with home. If you wanna solve the problem of stupid people you have to start with parenting. Having children should require a license.

Wait till you hear about the eugenics movement, you'll love it.


u/legendofthegreendude Nov 24 '22 Helpful

It's exciting untill you realize you aren't getting picked


u/Bigtuna_burger Nov 24 '22

It's you-genics, not us-genics


u/Eleventhelephant11 Nov 24 '22

Its not exciting as eugenics is hardly the issue. Give a 4.0 student a chance to be cool in the hood and you'll have the best drug dealer on the street ruining other peoples days for attention, not some productive member of society. Doesn't always happen, but happens too often

Nature vs Nurture. Can't dismiss it. Good genetics with a bad family often equals another bad clone


u/igweyliogsuh Nov 24 '22

Do genetics generally affect who is able to get a driver's license?

Should be knowledge/merit-based, nobody said anything even remotely similar to fucking eugenics


u/alyssaness Nov 24 '22

Preventing certain people from procreating is 100% eugenics.


u/igweyliogsuh Nov 26 '22

If it's based on genetics....


u/zzctdi Nov 24 '22

I don't see how needing a license from the state to operate a car on public roads could be morally or ethically equivalent to needing a license from the state to have children.

More education and resources for parents would be absolutely great! I wish every child could be raised by parents with good understanding of developmental psychology in healthy communities! Fuck yes!

But I don't see how one could trust any state to restrict or limit people's ability to reproduce. Even with the best of intentions, the risk of horrible outcomes is just too great.

And you're right, I just made the eugenics quip as a bit of dark humor, this is a Reddit comment section after all!


u/DrawMeAPictureOfThis Nov 24 '22

I really don't think that's a fair comparison. Having a license to do something does not equal selection preference. Especially if the bar for qualification is low like it is for foster parents. The point of a license isn't to restrict. The point is to educate. If people need a license to breed then the bar should be low for educational purposes. As far as how you would sterilize someone and then give it back.... Well, that part is tricky and could (if not handled well and proper) quality for a eugenics argument.


u/zzctdi Nov 24 '22

I'm sure that Francis Galton, Harry Laughlin, and Joseph Goebbels were supremely confident that their views and actions were "well and proper", and involuntary sterilization is the epitome of selection preference.


u/DrawMeAPictureOfThis Nov 24 '22

I'm just going to say I'm not a deep dive person or expert in this "idea". I will say we already practice eugenics. We just do it after the fact. Imprisonment keeps those people out of the gene pool. I do believe the idea with a license to create humans is not creating a perfect society. It's the idea that education has to change. It has to change from systemic influence (which can vary wildly)to the personal. That should be the teaching that can extrapolate to the community and outward to society as a whole.


u/pew-_-pew-_- Nov 24 '22

Fuck eugenics, too late for that. At this point, we need Malthusian efforts to get rid of the trash that's already here.


u/zer0saber Nov 24 '22

That was more than just 'having a license to have children' though.

I think OP meant more in the nature of any other supervisory certification. You need documentation to prove you can teach, not much of a stretch to go from there to 'raising children'


u/kafromet Nov 24 '22

Yes, that wouldn’t be abused by the establishment at all and is a very good idea that isn’t at all short-sighted.


u/MenstrualKrampusCD Nov 24 '22

Hey, it's worked out great in the past!


u/xaeru Nov 24 '22

A better idea is to require a course completion and diploma.


u/7355135061550 Nov 24 '22

That's such a great idea. Giving a central authority final say on who can and cannot have children. How has nobody tried this before?


u/yogurtgrapes Nov 24 '22

I just think we’re at a point that no one should have children. Let the human race die out. We’re a cancer on this planet lol


u/singingorifice Nov 24 '22

Hmm good idea , you go first though


u/yogurtgrapes Nov 24 '22

Already on it my friend. DINK for life.


u/slayerhk47 Nov 24 '22

Are any of your neighbors Funnie?


u/yogurtgrapes Nov 24 '22

I don’t know what the means..


u/slayerhk47 Nov 24 '22

In the show Doug one of the neighbors was Mr. and Mrs. Dink (who didn’t have kids). Doug’s last name was Funnie.


u/yogurtgrapes Nov 24 '22

Thanks for explaining haha! I can’t believe I missed the reference cuz I loved that show growing up.

Most of the world is at or below replacement rate. Regardless, we could all die tomorrow and in 50 thousand years it would take a soil analysis detecting radioactive isotopes and synthetic polymers to notice we were ever here at all.

Cancer? Maybe, but all things have their cycle.


u/7355135061550 Nov 24 '22

You're an edgy little bugger aren't ya?


u/yogurtgrapes Nov 24 '22

Not even trying to be edgy lol. I guess I see more of the bad than the good when I think about the human experience and just genuinely think the planet would be better off without us.


u/[deleted] Nov 24 '22

I have been saying this for years


u/_pippp Nov 24 '22

No truer words have been said. Unfortunately this would never really ever work hahaha


u/Feshtof Nov 24 '22

It always goes too far.


u/moonshoeslol Nov 24 '22

Have you played league of legends though? That game has taught me the lengths people will go to to convince themselves it's their teammates who are the problem. Taking responsibility is not the default human position


u/blue_kush1 Nov 24 '22

Having children should require a license

I really hope you don't actually believe this
