Creating the perfect race

While driving for rideshare I picked up these two women who were telling me about where there from: Modesto California, and how it’s like a hot dusty desert and they call it mo-dusty, and how George Lucas was from there hence the Star Wars setting.

And One of the women started talking about the idea behind Gattaca and how she got on the Gallata train years ago before the pandemic. For those who don’t know Gattaca is a Netflix show and this is the premise:

Gattaca-a future where status is determined by genetics, a genetically flawed man conspires to game the system in order to achieve his lifelong dream.

“The powers at be want a perfect race. I believe people should have flaws,” my rideshare client said.

“Me too,” I advocate for the disabled community.
