This is an idea that I had last night.

Let's say you are a scientist who discovers irrefutable evidence that your ethnic group, has significant genetic superiority to other ethnic groups. What do you do with said evidence?

Now here's another one. You discover a new source of energy that is similar to nuclear power in that it can be hypothetically applied to massive production of electricity, or the creation of the biggest bombs the world has ever seen. What do you do with your research?

I would destroy the first set of research and publish the second set, my reasoning being that the first discovery can bring no good to humanity if it comes out, whereas the second set, while it carries risk, would also provide a huge benefit if properly harnessed.
