Just a few questions Hobbesian:Sterilising criminals, would help break the cycle of crime that exists in some "deprived" areas, where crime is pretty much the family trade. And I actually think youd be doing a lot of people a favour by sterilising them, in that it would actually improve the quality of their lives, if they didnt have kids to support. The cost and stress of rearing kids drives a lot of less well off people to drink and other social problems.
Where exactly are these "deprived" areas?
Which criminals should be "sterilized"?
Do you really think that if some people don't have kids to support it will improve their way of living?
You say a lot of the less well off are driven to drink and other social problems by rearing kids, so are the rich immune from being bad parents and alcoholism?
