Back When Eugenics Was Fun

Mike Flynn has an amazing little piece of cultural archaeology up on his site from the days before Eugenics was actually put into practice on a national charnel house scale. What’s fascinating to me is how the media played it as the Scientific Wave of the Future for the highbrows, while selling it as goofy whacky vaudeville schlock for the lowbrows. What’s even more amazing is how, even after the Third Reich, so many of our highbrows go on believing in it. The lowbrows, having seen what the highbrows wanted to do to them, aren’t quite so easily sold these days. But the Elite is still very much eager to try it again. They just *love* culling the herd and telling other people what to do.
