Share out super-genes

Sir: S Pruner (letter, 11 May) is being unduly pessimistic about genetic engineering and the possible rise of a socio-economic "super-class".

In view of the fact that the prettiest girls have been joining forces with the cleverest boys ever since human evolution began, today's elite have patently got all the best genes already. Any technology which can be used to spread these superior genes around more liberally can only be a good thing for society at large.
