A Chip Off the Communist Block

Demonstrating the same spirit which motivated Communist thugs like Lenin, Stalin, Mao and the current President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, Belaruusian Chamber of Representatives deputy Syarhey Kastsyan suggested a couple of days ago the enactment of a law to introduce forced sterilization for individuals "leading an asocial life." Of course, the ones deciding who qualifies for that ignoble distinction will be Party purists like Comrade Kastsyan.

"Even animals are selective about mating." Kastyan said. And therefore, to keep unhealthy children, the asocial elements and " idiots" under control (or as he also put it, to prevent the gradual "'cretinization' of society"), "It is necessary to solve the problem in a drastic way. It is necessary to enact a law providing for forced sterilization, or else the state will not withstand this burden."
