The Radical, Intellectual Roots of the Eugenics Movement

Devastating, brilliant, and brief review of a museum exhibit in Ottawa, in Canada’s National Post. I am cheating the Fair Use reaper by quoting this bit, but there’s more and it’s all must read, and probably worth e-mailing around:

The most vociferous and outspoken of the socialist eugenicists was the novelist H. G. Wells, author of The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds and The Invisible Man. …

A strict social order would be formed. At the bottom of it were the base. These were “people who had given evidence of a strong anti-social disposition”, including “the black, the brown, the swarthy, the yellow.” Christians would also “have to go” as well as the handicapped. Wells devoted entire pamphlets to the need of “preventing the birth, preventing the procreation or preventing the existence” of the mentally and physically handicapped. “This thing, this euthanasia of the weak and the sensual is possible. I have little or no doubt that in the future it will be planned and achieved.”

The people of Africa and Asia, he said, simply could never find a place in a modern world controlled by science. Better to do away with the lot….

Population would be rigidly controlled, with forced abortion for those who were not of the right class and race.

And by then the reviewer, Michael Coren, is just getting warmed up…he hasn’t even gotten to Margaret Sanger yet.

We live now in the world these radicals made. And their are still plenty of people ready to do their work. Some of them are ideologues, but many of them are simple opportunists:

Bertha Pinedo Bugarin, who faces similar charges in Los Angeles, is accused of telling women that she was a doctor, performing abortions on them and prescribing drugs. One woman had to be rushed to a hospital with life-threatening complications, prosecutors said.

“This defendant preyed on women in the Hispanic community,” said San Diego County Dist. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis. “By passing herself off as a doctor, she put these women’s lives in serious danger.”…

At one point, Bugarin ran six abortion clinics in Southern California, advertising them on Spanish-language television. If convicted on all counts, she faces more than nine years in prison, prosecutors said.

But if we have not yet evolved enough as the old radicals would have us do, remember that the Lightworker is there to “help us to evolve” even more.
