Eugenics is the “applied science or the bio-social movement which advocates the use of practices aimed at improving the genetic composition of a population”, usually referring to the manipulation of human populations. The origins of the concept of eugenics began with certain interpretations of Mendelian inheritance, and the theories of August Weismann. Historically, many of the practitioners of eugenics viewed eugenics as a science, not necessarily restricted to human populations; this embraced the views of Darwinism and Social Darwinism.

Eugenics was widely popular in the early decades of the 20th century. The First International Congress of Eugenics in 1912 was supported by many prominent persons, including: its president Leonard Darwin, the son of Charles Darwin; honorary vice-president Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty and future Prime Minister of the United Kingdom; Auguste Forel, famous Swiss pathologist; Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone; among others.

    I had a thought that if eugenics is being practiced with any ‘great success’ then why is the United States being overpopulated at a faster rate then ever with non white child birth non educated immigrants and educational hurdles that defi any argument that Eugenics has been acheiving any success. Is it demonstrated anywhere that it is a operational plan that is going forward successfully?

    Eugenics has compelling attractive reasoning to put it on a list of ‘fixes’ for social failure and decline. Men can’t be left unattended to administer such a social program. They can’t even run a Corporation with any compassion, with rare exception., It is obvious that a ethical governmental body might be up to the task of who should live or die. but none are to be found . It is therefore left to a benevolent God to straighten out this mess. If he exists and I believe he does, then I fear He may soon even the playing field in the way he has with past civilizations that got lopsided with greed and corruption. Maybe he will send down some angels to govern us? Or to clean up the mess that has gone ‘viral’? they say He drowned the world once. If you believe He did that, what wouldn’t He do?
