    Or rather, the genetics that make for the neurophysiology in which extremism can take root, do not come with their "content" predetermined.

    Thus leaving open the memetic route (replacement of extremist ideas by progressive ideas) to overcoming the attempt to use an aggressive breeding strategy as a route to power.

    The only way the extremists can be sure their plentiful offspring remain faithful to extremist views, is by keeping their offspring behind a kind of ideological Berlin wall all their lives.  This is necessarily doomed to fail because information always gets through, no matter how one attempts to hermetically seal oneself off from it.
