Exactly, then the government could make rational decisions about how much tax money to invest in that person. Thus, we secure increasing social-stratification for our children and their children. We can finally get back to the elite rule of a few served by mass peasantry, as it should be.

I honestly think plutocracies are far more efficient than government bureaucracies. There are so many retards that slip into the elite levels of government. This may be less likely if we could rank people by family history and mental aptitude. Then some type of plutocracy could choose which people could fulfill an upper-middle class of jobs. The hardest part would be making the plutocracy small enough to be truly efficient.


Wow, you're a special kind of brilliant. You should be running things, it sounds like you know exactly how mankind should function and what would work best for all.

It is true that mental ability does have some link to genetics, so I think that it is fair to say that a family tree mapping system could be helpful to whoever the powers are on deciding where to place the best and the brightest. This could be something included in law admission. C&F could use this to see if you were more susceptible to certain anti-social behaviors because of mental diseases in your family history.

I would much rather have a a group of important families calling the shots. At least they would be swift . The governement moves too slow and facilitates the "hanger-ons" far too much. Don't get me started on sterilization programs.


Totally. The fatal flaw in the "Brave New World" system is an inflated government bureaucracy. If we just get rid of that, and have a small circle of "super alphas" choose how to allocate top talent, society would be optimally efficient.

Cap the amoun of merit-aid available per school. Like, 300 students per school could get federal loans, then many TTTTs would close down.

The city of Chicago is willing to sacrifice Kent, Loyola, DePaul, and John Marshall.

My great state could do without South Texas College of Law, St Mary's, Texas Southern University, and Wesleyan, at least.

Just because strange women laying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government, that doesn't mean it wouldn't be fine for governing law school accreditation.

UT, SMU, and UH will have enough students from West Texas who are willing to go back IMO.

Might as well abort UNT at Dallas College of Law too, http://untsystem.edu/lawschool-2/index.html,

Nevertheless, applicants with at least a 150 LSAT and at least a 3.0 UGPA especially are encouraged to apply.

Tech should stay. West Texas is basically another country, and Tech is a good, cheap school that serves that market.

UNT doesn't even exist yet and it would be better than Wesleyan.

Definitely keep LSU and Tulane. A lot of tulane folk seem to leave Louisiana so MAYBE keep Loyola, but cut their enrollment in half. Also, get rid of southern.

Right, it opens Fall of 2014. But will it be better than Texas A&M School of Law at Texas Wesleyan University? Who knows. I like the building though. Prestigious.


I like how one of their points is, "Houston has three law schools (two public, one private). In 2007, Houston area law schools awarded 902 degrees. By comparison, the more populous DFW region had only two private law schools and awarded 457 degrees."

"The UNT at Dallas College of Law will be an importaint service to many fine students who are shut out of legal education now"
