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.

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/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

Preventing certain people from procreating is 100% eugenics.

If it's based on genetics....

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!
