Recent research showed, Lamarckian style, that trauma-related olfactory
memories are somehow transferred to the germ of mice and then to their
children. (https://www.nature.com/articles/nn.3594) The era of genetics as
ultimate determinant will be closing shortly.  Experience flows back into
the entire hereditary structure, whether it is through genes, body flora,
methylation, histone configuration, memes, &c.

Such genetic supremacy against the poor is dancing on the edge of a knife
and ends in genocide.

Genetic wounds will all be able to be healed soon anyway.

The question is,

Can the world handle 10 billion smart people?
