As Galton defined it in Essays in Eugenics (), eugenics is "the study of agencies under social control which may improve or impair the racial qualities of future generations" (p. 81). Eugenics seeks to improve the human gene pool by encouraging.

An all-round, balanced dog will be a much better hope for the future than a highly-selected, over-bred animal thought to be "best" due to its possessing exaggerated traits in one or two areas, whether it be a "perfect head," a showy gait. The Dangers of CRISPR Technology. We didn't start tinkering with the nuts and bolts of genetics until the 70’s and historically it's been a pretty exclusive thing you needed a specialized lab with hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment and a staff of highly trained scientists to make the most basic changes. And I hope I have.
