"Well I guess it helps with growing a population, but it's still about twenty years of growth and education. Maybe ten-fifteen if you're evil. I don't see how it helps with living standards or the other two. And lots of people would have twins, or probably more. That'd be weird."

"But cloning is like a transitory step, right? There's no need for cloning after the first generation, they can get on with natural growth after that. It's not like clones get sterilized, right?"

"Oh. So, they're like, um, things made of flesh and bone?"
