Individual genetic engineering => social change?

Randall Parker addresses the long-term social implications of genetic engineering in the context of altruism. It's a very good post, I encourage you to read it! Of course, you don't need to bring up genetic engineering either to discuss individual vs. group costs & benefits, most educated Americans have only a few children because of their individual priorities, but probably end up short-changing "society." Genetic engineering only adds another wrinkle.
