46. Actually, it can't be bred out

 

for the same reason that psychopathy can't be bred out and eugenics doesn't work: the inescapable randomness in the universe ensures that in every generation, all traits are distributed under the usual curve. So we always get a few percent of obligative psychopaths, a few percent of obligative "saints", etc.
