A true eugenicist would employ whatever means necessary to ensure the children being born are those with good genes. In the past this could only consist of selective breeding and natural selection, but in the present, with recent advances such as CRISPR, gene editing is increasingly becoming viable as a tool the eugenicist can use. In fact, with the births of Lulu and Nana, the Chinese twins whose genes were edited to make them HIV-resistant, we can say gene editing is already being put into use as a eugenic tool. It should not surprise anyone that this is happening, since genetic modified crops have already been dominating agriculture for decades.
If gene editing has eugenic value, then the true eugenicists are the technophiles, since it is the technological progress they advocate which makes gene editing possible. They will bring technology that will allow low IQ thugs to inject their embryos with a genetic sequence from a high IQ person, so that their children will grow up to be intelligent and productive members of society.
So a true eugenicist would not want society collapse. He would work to promote the technological progress of the West, because if technology reaches a point where the science of gene editing humans is perfected, then gene editing will be a most powerful eugenic tool.
