### Harsh but fair, maybe?

I'd rather say that acknowledging evolutionary forces acting on the
society, and deftly working with them is the mellow option, compared to
mulishly going against the tide. Low fitness should lead to elimination of
the responsible alleles. Keeping deleterious alleles artificially protected
from extinction only adds to misery. Deleterious alleles have a cost to the
filial generation and a cost to non-carriers, a cost paid in
perpetuity when evolution is thwarted.
