The HERA Approach
At HERA we believe a competent eugenics programme is vital to ensure the survival of the human species and so our dedicated team of eugnicists have been developing cutting edge techniques in order to maintain a controlled understanding over the rapidly evolving human genome. We are governed by a strict ethical code, however, if and when the survival of our species becomes threatened you can rest assured that HERA will take all necessary steps to ensure that our species will prevail.
There are three main ways by which the methods of eugenics can be applied. One is mandatory eugenics or authoritarian eugenics, in which the government mandates a eugenics program. Policies and/or legislation are often seen as being coercive and restrictive. Another is promotional voluntary eugenics, in which eugenics is voluntarily practiced and promoted to the general population, but not officially mandated. This is a form of non-state enforced eugenics, using a liberal or democratic approach, which can mostly be seen in the 1900s. The third is private eugenics, which is practiced voluntarily by individuals and groups, but not promoted to the general population. HERA Eugenics falls under the latter category.
A Brief Background
Eugenics is the “applied science or the bio-social movement which advocates the use of practices aimed at improving the genetic composition of a population”, usually referring to the manipulation of human populations. The origins of the concept of eugenics began with certain interpretations of Mendelian inheritance, and the theories of August Weismann. Historically, many of the practitioners of eugenics viewed eugenics as a science, not necessarily restricted to human populations; this embraced the views of Darwinism and Social Darwinism.
