The prohibition of incest is an exception to the rule that bans are counterproductive.
In another article (1) I commented that violence is as cheap as inefficient.
Today I add: it is inefficient to achieve the objectives that directly seems intent but is very efficient to generate the opposite phenomena.
The following occurs:
Humans have free will want to feel powerful, not to feel responsible and above all to feel different from other living beings who want or need to feel superior.
With this universal fantasy in our minds for centuries we are using violence to thwart the designs of nature until, after a few millennia failing, we ask: Is it smart to continue to use violence to prevent it from happening what bothers us?
I dream that life will have to see any of these changes to persuasion, education, convenience, progressive abandonment of repression, threats, punishments.
This mystical distortion in my rational brain is encouraged that the computer can actually achieve organizational systems and management of coexistence that are adapted to what we really are and not as before we apply violence to be human beings who we adapt by force systems as if they were perfect
All would think that if we remove the ban on abortion in civilized conditions who wish to do so, the amount of decrease unwanted pregnancies, number of abortions and also the death of women decrease.
Everything would indicate that, if we remove the ban on the sale and consumption of psychoactive substances (cocaine, marijuana, amphetamines), the insane corruption generated by the drug decrease.
Abundant global population indicates that the prohibition of incest is among the few prohibitions that are healthy stimulant.
