A call to arms

In the first three decades of the 20th Century, American corporate philanthropy combined with prestigious academic fraud to create the pseudoscience eugenics that institutionalized race politics as national policy. The goal: create a superior, white, Nordic race and obliterate the viability of everyone else. ...

Ultimately, 60,000 Americans were coercively sterilized — legally and extra-legally. Many never discovered the truth until decades later. Those who actively supported eugenics include America's most progressive figures: Woodrow Wilson, Margaret Sanger and Oliver Wendell Holmes.

American eugenic crusades proliferated into a worldwide campaign, and in the 1920s came to the attention of Adolf Hitler. Under the Nazis, American eugenic principles were applied without restraint, careening out of control into the Reich's infamous genocide. During the pre-War years, American eugenicists openly supported Germany's program.

So says Edwin Black in his 2003 book, War Against the Weak.

I don’t know anything about this book or its author, other than the scraps I’ve perused on the webpage, but his thesis fits all too well into the overall picture of Western society. As I said in part of my recent fisk of James “Watson” Ogre, our culture is burning the genocidal candle at both ends: away with the fetal, off with the oppressed, down with the geriatric. Too much drooling and pooping and incompetence in every case. That filth might get into the jacuzzi.
