Egalitarianism Confronts Genetics

Now this is an interesting article. American social scientist Charles Murray believes that "advances in genetics and neurology will lead to the death of egalitarianism within 20 years." From the sounds of it, psuedo-science could finally be eliminated. This last quote is quite interesting: "What he calls the "intellectual egalitarianism" of the Left actually is not about equal outcomes at all, he says. It just "hates the idea that some people are inherently smarter or more charming [and that you can't change that] by the right social program or the right liberation of people from their oppressors." Social engineering can't cure inequality."Source: Sydney Morning Herald [newspaper]
