Human Rights and Genetics

Hey Quinton, I'm on chapter 3 of crowd freedom and so far I really like it. Once I read some of the concepts I've already thought of ones you've spoken intuitively. I don't know if you mention it later on in the book but would manipulation of human's genes be a necessary step in human evolution and expansion? Especially if mutations were made to make humans more naturally want to follow NAP and be less enclined to infringe on the property of others. Also allowing humans to consume food more efficiently and change them to do things such as survive on planets with lower or higher gravity. If so, at what point does an egg become it's own property rather than it's parents'? And wouldn't something need to be established to prevent humans from being engineered in a way that they would be designed to have a preference toward certain businesses just to turn a profit, ruining free will and destroying the entire point of a free market society?

Let me address some of your questions, obviously this is just my take:

"would manipulation of human's genes be a necessary step in human evolution and expansion? Especially if mutations were made to make humans more naturally want to follow NAP and be less enclined to infringe on the property of others. Also allowing humans to consume food more efficiently and change them to do things such as survive on planets with lower or higher gravity."

I think these types of questions are something to think about once we actually have some free societies going. These are good questions, but the scope seems kind of less important when compared to the fact that we have central banks indebting future generations currently. This also gets into somewhat of a spiritual or philosophical topic of what is the purpose of humans and to what degree should we interfere with their evolution. I'm sure different people have different takes on it and I would think once we actually have taken care of other more pressing problems then we could explore this more.

"If so, at what point does an egg become it's own property rather than it's parents'?"

If you're asking what I think you're asking it comes down to self-ownership. I did a post/video on this: http://www.crowdfreedom.com/when-does-child-become-adult-free-society

"And wouldn't something need to be established to prevent humans from being engineered in a way that they would be designed to have a preference toward certain businesses just to turn a profit, ruining free will and destroying the entire point of a free market society?"

If a market is free it's hard for somebody to create a business just for the sake of making money and exploiting people. If somebody was creating a product that engineered humans to think a certain way there would be another business exposing the pitfalls of that business. Competition in a free market makes it hard for any business to do something like this.
