and quotes Professor Gisela Kaplan as saying
I'm happy to say, .. there are individual breeders who are making sure the genetic stock remains pure.
This is just plain weird. The usual Greenie arguments against
extinction are that any creature's DNA may contain a cure for cancer, and once
the species goes extinct, the genetic material is lost forever
(untrue in the age of cloning from DNA strands, but as that technology is still
formative, they get the benefit of the doubt).
But no such extinction seems to be in store for the dingoes, who are just
interbreeding with other varieties of domestic dogs. Clearly all the genes are
still present, they are just scattered though a bunch of half-breed mongrels
instead of being in their 'pure' form.
And the problem with this is ..?
Perhaps these members of the intellectual elite
regard racial purity as a desirable thing in itself, and don't think that pure
races should be polluted with impurities? If this is the case, then shouldn't
this apply to humans as well as other species?
Perhaps Professor Kaplan and his peer-reviewing colleagues think there
should be government funded programs to 'make sure the genetic stock
remains pure' and free of the inevitable pollution from cross-breeding?
Pure Aryan perhaps? Perhaps they think the Negroid races fill a particular
ecological niche in manual labor? Or that the Mongoloid races are needed for laundry
