I guess we could try to build synthetic zombie human bodies and hatch them in the lab.

Peasants are always expendable.  And enemies of the State can be dealt with humanely at Dachau.

Eugenics in general have a bad reputation throughout history. It depends how rational the person who has access to this is. If it ends up in the hand of an irrational dictator if could be Nazi Germany all over again. The advancements in science and technology that we've made are truly astounding. The problem is 99% of the 7 billion people on earth don't know how to think rationally. I believe that all these advancements are premature, humans should have learned to think rationally before being able to handling nuclear weapons.
Eugenics is (sorta) already here with screening for birth defects.

Been here a long time.  The Spartans did it.  Modern abortion is massive voluntary eugenics.  The end result will be rich idiots like Trump cloning themselves ;-(

Cloning is misunderstood. The cloned Trump will very much be different from the real one, the Butterfly Effect will cause it.

True, but don't tell Trump.  Besides, clones will be harvested for their organs anyway ;-(
