I never understood the meaning of oogenics.  What is it?

It is a social philosophy advocating the improvement of human genetic traits through the promotion of higher rates of sexual reproduction for people with desired traits (positive eugenics), or reduced rates of sexual reproduction and sterilization of people with less-desired or undesired traits (negative eugenics)

It's basically the survival of the fittest and best. Everyone else is undesirable, no matter what their positive qualities may be.

I don't subscribe to this theory in total.

The whole idea seems to be based on a false premise: that genes affect intelligence and personality.  This is false.  It's the environment that only matters, not genes.

Hows it hangin,

I just did my school paper on this.  basically, what causes some to be "smart" or "not smart" is things like cultural oppression, racism, socio-economic deprivation, and poor nutrition and stress.  It has nothing to do with genetics.

If we get rid of racism, sexism, homophobia, and being poor and oppressed, all people would become very "smart."

Gidday, I'm fine thanks.

You may well be right RE; your last sentence but still, I think that somefolks are naturally 'better' (for lack of a better way of putting it, it's early morning and I just woke up and haven't had coffee yet) than others. While I agree that this shouldn't come into the equation, it does and that's something that we can't change.
