China is Dysgenic, not Eugenic|
In response to the following quote:
In China successful men had concubines. During the Ming Dynasty, there was an official process for the empire to select among the population the most fit women to become the Imperial Concubines and breed with the Emperor. For instance, the Emperor Yingzong of Ming had 22 consorts who gave birth to 9 sons and 10 daughters. There is a very good reason why the mean IQ of China is so much higher than any other population on earth. There were engaged in a large scale selective breading process that gave more children to higher status individuals.
During a defined chronological period, the hundreds of millions of Chinese would be ruled by a single Emperor. How could just one Emperor's personal mating practices affect the overall gene pool consisting of hundreds of millions of Chinese? Your hypothesis does not appear valid to me. I am more inclined to accept the model that the Chinese's colder-climate led to their higher median intelligence, similar to the Caucasians.
Also, I have not seen any evidence of genetic improvement in China in modern times. There are no laws in China facilitating a positive correlation between fertility and intelligence and conscientiousness. In fact, a recent paper came to the conclusion that China is actually experiencing dysgenics:
Plus, I propose that eugenics/transhumanism is an egalitarian endeavor, and the existence of such a practice much be conditional and predicated on the existence of the underlying practice of the more basic egalitarian system: democracy. But, China does not even have a democracy but instead a monarchy. Monarchism is highly inegalitarian, one in which the law states that all citizens are the physical property of the King/Emperor. In such a system, the King has no desire to eugenically/transhumanistically raise the quality of his human property to his level or beyond him; his goal is to hold them down and keep them disempowered so they can be easily contro11ed, subjugated, and exploited.
