Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#1. While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization, #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#2. We should find ourselves committed to killing a great many people whom we now leave living ... A part of eugenic politics would finally land us in an extensive use of the lethal chamber. A great many people would have to be put out of existence simply because it wastes other people's time to look after them. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Eugenics quotes by Slobodan Milosevic
#3. The only differences one can and should allow in socialism are between hard working people and idlers and between honest people and dishonest people. #Quote by Slobodan Milosevic
Eugenics quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#4. All that is mere
rationalism; the superstition (that is the unreasoning repugnance
and terror) is in the person who admits there can be angels but
denies there can be devils. The superstition is in the person who
admits there can be devils but denies there can be diabolists. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#5. Birth Control which has been criticized as negative and destructive, is really the greatest and most truly eugenic method, and its adoption as part of the program of Eugenics would immediately give a concrete and realistic power to that science ... as the most constructive and necessary of the means to racial health. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Eugenics Review, 1929
#6. See the happy moron,
He doesn't give a damn,
I wish I were a moron,
My God! perhaps I am! #Quote by Eugenics Review, 1929
Eugenics quotes by Jules Renard
#7. Socialism must come down from the brain and reach the heart. #Quote by Jules Renard
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#8. Give dysgenic groups [people with 'bad genes'] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#9. Many American boys that fought in WWII had been sterilized under eugenic laws passed by the the United States Supreme Court under the 1927 case of Buck v. Bell. Over 80,000 Americans would be forcibly sterilized under that legal precedent. Coincidentally, Buck v Bell is also the legal precedent cited in Roe v. Wade, the famous abortion rights case. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#10. Most Eugenists are Euphemists. I mean merely that short words startle them, while long words soothe them. And they are utterly incapable of translating the one into the other, however obviously they mean the same thing. Say to them "The persuasive and even coercive powers of the citizen should enable him to make sure that the burden of longevity in the previous generation does not become disproportionate and intolerable, especially to the females"; say this to them and they will sway slightly to and fro like babies sent to sleep in cradles. Say to them "Murder your mother," and they sit up quite suddenly. Yet the two sentences, in cold logic, are exactly the same. Say to them "It is not improbable that a period may arrive when the narrow if once useful distinction between the anthropoid homo and the other
animals, which has been modified on so many moral points, may be modified also even in regard to the important question of the extension of human diet"; say this to them, and beauty born of murmuring sound will pass into their face. But say to them, in a simple, manly, hearty way "Let's eat a man!" and their surprise is quite surprising. Yet the sentences say just the same thing. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Eugenics quotes by John Calvin
#11. Yet consider now, whether women are not quite past sense and reason, when they want to rule over men. #Quote by John Calvin
Eugenics quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#12. the largest "negative eugenics" project in human history was not the systemic extermination of Jews in Nazi Germany or Austria in the 1930s. That ghastly distinction falls on India and China, where more than 10 million female children are missing from adulthood because of infanticide, abortion, and neglect of female children. Depraved #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#13. Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Rand Paul
#14. You can excuse these socialists all you want as "men and women of their times". But never forget that they were socialists and that they saw state planning of the family as no different than state planning of the economy or a rancher's planning for his cattle breeding. #Quote by Rand Paul
Eugenics quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#15. Galton's eccentric, sceptical, observing, flashing, cavalry-leader type of mind led him eventually to become the founder of the most important, significant and, I would add, genuine branch of sociology which exists, namely eugenics. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Eugenics quotes by Bertrand Russell
#16. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Eugenics quotes by Libba Bray
#17. In Chinatown, a large rock painted with a message - CHINESE GO HOME! - shattered the front window of Chong & Sons, Jewellers. An arsonist's fire gutted the Wing Sing restaurant overnight; Mr. Wing stood in the softly falling wisps of soot-flecked snow, his sober face backlit by the orange glow as he watched everything he'd built burn to the ground. […] Fear was everywhere. At a eugenics conference in the elegant ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, genteel men in genteel suits spoke of "the mongrel problem - the ruin of the white race." They pointed to drawings and diagrams that proved most disease could be traced to inferior breeding stock. They called this science. They called it fact. They called it patriotism. People drank their coffee and nodded in agreement. #Quote by Libba Bray
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#18. The 1924 Immigration Restriction Act was the primary tool used by FDR to keep Jewish refugees from reaching US shores. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Markham Shaw Pyle
#19. It was left to the Progressive movement in America (as to the Fabians in Britain) to promote eugenics, Prohibition, dietary fads, the compulsory sterilisation of those they deemed 'unfit', and preferential treatment in immigration law of 'Nordic' (and preferably Protestant) immigrants. #Quote by Markham Shaw Pyle
Eugenics quotes by C.S. Lewis
#20. If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reasons. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Eugenics quotes by Jim Keith
#21. The relation of eugenics to British psychiatry bears examination. The primary controlling body for psychiatry in England is the British National Association for Mental Health (NAMH), formed in 1944, and initially run by the mentally unstable Montagu Norman, previously of the Bank of England. The group originally met at Norman's London home, where he and Nazi Economics Minister Hjalmar Schacht had met in the 1930s to arrange financing for Hitler. #Quote by Jim Keith
Eugenics quotes by Thomas Malthus
#22. No state has hitherto existed (at least that we have any account of) ... that no check whatever has existed to early marriages, among the lower classes, from a fear of not providing well for their families, or among the higher classes, from a fear of lowering their condition in life. #Quote by Thomas Malthus
Eugenics quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#23. The thing that really is trying to tyrannize through government is Science. The thing that really does use the secular arm is Science. And the creed that really is levying tithes and capturing schools, the creed that really is enforced by fine and imprisonment, the creed that really is proclaimed not in sermons but in statues, and spread not by pilgrims but by policemen - that creed is the great but disputed system of thought which began with Evolution and has ended in Eugenics. Materialism is really our established Church; for the government will really help it to persecute its heretics…I am not frightened of the word 'persecution'…It is a term of legal fact. If it means the imposition by the police of a widely disputed theory, incapable of final proof - then our priests are not now persecuting, but our doctors are. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#24. Segregation in the American South was bankrolled by the wealthy eugenicist from the Northeast, Wickliffe Draper. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by John B. S. Haldane
#25. To the biologist the problem of socialism appears largely as a problem of size. #Quote by John B. S. Haldane
Eugenics quotes by Earl Warren
#26. Many people consider the things government does for them to be social progress but they regard the things government does for others as socialism.
[Address to National Press Club in Washington DC, as quoted in Freedom and Union (April 1952)] #Quote by Earl Warren
Eugenics quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#27. Now there is any amount of this nonsense cropping up among American cranks. Anybody may propose to establish coercive Eugenics; or enforce psychoanalysis that is, enforce confession without absolution. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Eugenics quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#28. The whole point of the Eugenic pseudo-scientific theories is that they are to be applied wholesale, by some more sweeping and generalizing money power than the individual husband or wife or household. Eugenics asserts that all men must be so stupid that they cannot manage their own affairs; and also so clever that they can manage each other's. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#29. Some that read this book will find its Libertarian and Constitutionalist slant a bit obtuse and maybe even off-putting. This author makes no apologies for viewing the history of the eugenics movement from this political perspective. It is the ethical and legal underpinnings of the American Revolution that remain as a guiding light while the eugenics movement continues to reemerge long after its alleged demise. Limited, or rather minimal government, goes a long way to curtail the disconnect that emerges when government grows so large that it no longer feels compelled to heed to the dictates of the governed. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Robert O. Paxton
#30. Two kinds of development help explain how a readiness built up to kill all Jews, including women and children. One is a series of "dress rehearsals" that served to lower inhibitions and provided trained personnel hardened for anything. First came the euthanasia of incurably ill and insane Germans, begun on the day when World War II began. Nazi eugenics theory had long provided a racial justification for getting rid of "inferior" persons. War provided a broader justification for reducing the drain of "useless mouths" on scarce resources. The "T-4" program killed more than seventy thousand people between September 1939 and 1941, when, in response to protests from the victims' families and Catholic clergy, the matter was left to local authorities.
Some of the experts trained in this program were subsequently transferred to the occupied east, where they applied their mass killing techniques to Jews. This time, there was less opposition.

The second "dress rehearsal" was the work of the Einsatzgruppen, the intervention squads specially charged with executing the political and cultural elite of invaded countries. In the Polish campaign of September 1939 they helped wipe out the Polish intelligentsia and high civil service, evoking some opposition within the military command. In the Soviet campaign the Einsatzgruppen received the notorious "Commissar Order" to kill all Communist Party cadres as well as the Jewish leadership (seen as identical in Nazi eyes), along wi #Quote by Robert O. Paxton
Eugenics quotes by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
#31. The impact of all these restrictions is on poor women, because women who have means, if their state doesn't provide access, another state does ... It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people. #Quote by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Eugenics quotes by Leonard Darwin
#32. My firm conviction is that if wide-spread Eugenic reforms are not adopted during the next hundred years or so, our Western Civilization is inevitably destined to such a slow and gradual decay as that which has been experienced in the past by every great ancient civilization. The size and the importance of the United States throws on you a special responsibility in your endeavours to safeguard the future of our race. Those who are attending your Congress will be aiding in this endeavour, and though you will gain no thanks from your own generation, posterity will, I believe, learn to realize the great dept it owes to all the workers in this field. #Quote by Leonard Darwin
Eugenics quotes by Barbara Castle
#33. And what always struck me about that war period was how even Churchill had to talk socialism to keep up people's morale. #Quote by Barbara Castle
Eugenics quotes by Jim Keith
#34. The study of eugenics had its beginning in Germany, sometime after the mid-19th century mark, stimulated by volkish concerns for Aryan racial purity. Rudolf Virchow, pathologist and politician, began a study of national ethnic statistics in 1871, convinced that the majority of Germans would prove to be of relatively pure Nordic descent. The results of his studies proved otherwise. According to Virchow, the obvious solution was to set about Nordicizing the debased German stock. #Quote by Jim Keith
Eugenics quotes by Maurice Strong
#35. What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? In order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring this about? #Quote by Maurice Strong
Eugenics quotes by Hermann Joseph Muller
#36. There is no permanent status quo in nature; all is the process of adjustment and readjustment, or else eventual failure. But man is the first being yet evolved on earth which has the power to note this changefulness, and, if he will, to turn it to his own advantage, to work out genetic methods, eugenic ideas, yes, to invent new characteristics, organs, and biological systems that will work out to further the interests, the happiness, the glory of the God-like being whose meager foreshadowings we the present ailing creatures are. #Quote by Hermann Joseph Muller
Eugenics quotes by Ashlee Vance
#37. Musk has talked about having more kids, and it's on this subject that he delivers some controversial philosophizing vis-à-vis the creator of Beavis and Butt-head. "There's this point that Mike Judge makes in Idiocracy, which is like smart people, you know, should at least sustain their numbers," Musk said. "Like, if it's a negative Darwinian vector, then obviously that's not a good thing. It should be at least neutral. But if each successive generation of smart people has fewer kids, that's probably bad, too. I mean, Europe, Japan, Russia, China are all headed for demographic implosion. And the fact of the matter is that basically the wealthier - basically wealth, education, and being secular are all indicative of low birth rate. They all correlate with low birth rate. I'm not saying like only smart people should have kids. I'm just saying that smart people should have kids as well. They should at least maintain - at least be a replacement rate. And the fact of the matter is that I notice that a lot of really smart women have zero or one kid. You're like, 'Wow, that's probably not good. #Quote by Ashlee Vance
Eugenics quotes by Steven Pinker
#38. But the 20th century suffered "two" ideologies that led to genocides. The other one, Marxism, had no use for race, didn't believe in genes and denied that human nature was a meaningful concept. Clearly, it's not an emphasis on genes or evolution that is dangerous. It's the desire to remake humanity by coercive means (eugenics or social engineering) and the belief that humanity advances through a struggle in which superior groups (race or classes) triumph over inferior ones. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Eugenics quotes by Anthony Weiner
#39. Is Medicare socialism? You want to get rid of Medicare. And a lot of the people against health care do. I want to preserve it and grow it. #Quote by Anthony Weiner
Eugenics quotes by T.C. Boyle
#40. From my point of view, why shouldn't I work in every possible mode, to see if it's viable? "Los Gigantes" would not have worked as a straightforward, naturalistic tale. Part of the fun of it is that it's so preposterous and yet at the same time, it could have happened. Think of eugenics. Hitler certainly would have been doing it if he could have. #Quote by T.C. Boyle
Eugenics quotes by Joan Collins
#41. I'm extremely happy in my life. I consider myself to be very blessed. #Quote by Joan Collins
Eugenics quotes by Rebecca Lee
#42. Strain on the community -- That's a ridiculous arguement. Then nobody in the world should have children. I think asking people not to have children is just another form of genocide. #Quote by Rebecca Lee
Eugenics quotes by Nikola Tesla
#43. The year 2100 will see eugenics universally established. In past ages, the law governing the survival of the fittest roughly weeded out the less desirable strains. Then man's new sense of pity began to interfere with the ruthless workings of nature. As a result, we continue to keep alive and to breed the unfit. #Quote by Nikola Tesla
Eugenics quotes by Al Gore
#44. The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to lift Global Consciousness to a higher level. #Quote by Al Gore
Eugenics quotes by Norman Tebbit
#45. It is certainly safe, in view of the movement to the right of intellectuals and political thinkers, to pronounce the brain death of socialism. #Quote by Norman Tebbit
Eugenics quotes by Fuad Alakbarov
#46. I'm really amused by the people advocating eugenics. As if they would make the cut. #Quote by Fuad Alakbarov
Eugenics quotes by Rand Paul
#47. Today's left would have us forget that the pseudo-science of eugenics was once all the rage among socialists. #Quote by Rand Paul
Eugenics quotes by Arnold Kling
#48. That eugenics was part of the progressive agenda is one of the most heavily-airbrushed features of history. #Quote by Arnold Kling
Eugenics quotes by Jim Keith
#49. The Kaiser Wilhelm Institute's eugenics studies were initially endowed by Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, the head of the Krupp munitions monolith, and James Loeb, of the Kuhn-Loeb banking family. Loeb's relatives, the Warburgs, were banking partners of William Rockefeller, and both families were responsible for setting up the American Harriman family - also movers and shakers in eugenics - in business. #Quote by Jim Keith
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#50. Churchill's 2,054 page book "Second World War" makes no mention of genocide or the murder of Jews. Coincidentally, Churchill was a strong proponent of eugenic legislation prior to the outbreak of WWII. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#51. Eugenics, which had started long before my time, had once been defined as including free love and prevention of conception ... Recently it had cropped up again in the form of selective breeding. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#52. I find that most people that zealously defend Darwin have not actually read Darwin; definitely not Darwin's second book, The Descent of Man. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Bertrand Russell
#53. Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people's. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Eugenics quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#54. I wish very much that the wrong people could be prevented entirely from breeding #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Eugenics quotes by Richard Weikart
#55. Darwinism by itself did not produce the Holocaust, but without Darwinism ... neither Hitler nor his Nazi followers would have had the necessary scientific underpinnings to convince themselves and their collaborators that one of the worlds greatest atrocities was really morally praiseworthy. #Quote by Richard Weikart
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#56. [N]o one can doubt that there are times when an abortion is justifiable but they will become unnecessary when care is taken to prevent conception. This is the only cure for abortions. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Diane Ackerman
#57. We're dabbling in eugenics all the time, breeding ideal crops to replace less aesthetic or nutritious or hardy varieties; leveling forests to graze cattle or erect shopping malls and condos; planting groves of a few familiar trees that homeowners and industries prefer. #Quote by Diane Ackerman
Eugenics quotes by Chris Hedges
#58. Positive psychology is to the corporate state what eugenics was to the Nazis #Quote by Chris Hedges
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#59. Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Earl Browder
#60. Marxism conceives of the new system of socialism as the necessary outcome of all previous history made possible and necessary only by that previous history. #Quote by Earl Browder
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#61. Birth control is nothing more or less than ... weeding out the unfit. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Gregor Strasser
#62. The rise of National Socialism is the protest of a people against a State that denies the right to work. #Quote by Gregor Strasser
Eugenics quotes by Ed Miliband
#63. I suppose not everyone has a dad who wrote a book saying he didn't believe in the Parliamentary road to socialism. #Quote by Ed Miliband
Eugenics quotes by Glenn Beck
#64. You have three people in the White House that are in love with eugenics or whatever it is you would call it today. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Eugenics quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#65. Christian socialism"). This is a difficult concept for modern liberals to grasp because they are used to thinking of the progressives as the people who cleaned up the food supply, pushed through the eight hour workday, and ended child labor. But liberals often forget that the progressives were imperialists, at home and abroad. They were the authors of Prohibition, the Palmer Raids, eugenics, loyalty oaths, and, in its modern incarnation, what many call "state capitalism. #Quote by Jonah Goldberg
Eugenics quotes by Arthur Caplan
#66. Renegade scientists and totalitarian loonies are not the folks most likely to abuse genetic engineering. You and I are-not because we are bad but because we want to do good. In a world dominated by competition, parents understandably want to give their kids every advantage ... The most likely way for eugenics to enter into our lives is through the front door as nervous parents ... will fall over one another to be first to give Junior a better set of genes. #Quote by Arthur Caplan
Eugenics quotes by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
#67. Fascism is preoccupied by the clothing (namely the forms of state organization), National-Socialism by the body (namely the racial eugenics), whereas Legionarism is preoccupied by something much deeper: by the soul (namely by its strengthening through the cultivation of Christian virtues and its preparation with final salvation in mind, salvation dealt with by the Christian Church in the most perfect fashion). #Quote by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
Eugenics quotes by Leonard Darwin
#68. Dedicated to the memory of MY FATHER. For if I had not believed that he would have wished me to give such help as I could toward making his life's work of service to mankind, I should never have been led to write this book. #Quote by Leonard Darwin
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#69. Marx called Darwin a plagiarist and Malthus a fraud. Now all Marxists are Malthusian Darwinists. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Richard Dawkins
#70. Or why it is acceptable to train fast runners and high jumpers but not to breed them. I can think of some answers, and they are good ones, which would probably end up persuading me. But hasn't the time come when we should stop being frightened even to put the question? #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Eugenics quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#71. Eugenics, as discussed, evidently means the control of some men
over the marriage and unmarriage of others; and probably means the
control of the few over the marriage and unmarriage of the many #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Eugenics quotes by Walker Percy
#72. You are a member of the first generation of doctors in the history of medicine to turn their backs on the oath of Hippocrates and kill millions of old useless people, unborn children, born malformed children, for the good of mankind - and to do so without a single murmur from one of you. Not a single letter of protest in the august New England Journal of Medicine. And do you know what you're going to end up doing? You a graduate of Harvard and a reader of the New York Times and a member of the Ford Foundation's Program for the Third World? Do you know what is going to happen to you? ... You're going to end up killing Jews. #Quote by Walker Percy
Eugenics quotes by Bill Gates
#73. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That's heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care & reproductive health services, we could LOWER that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent. #Quote by Bill Gates
Eugenics quotes by Thomas Malthus
#74. The redundant population, necessarily occasioned by the prevalence of early marriages, must be repressed by occasional famines, and by the custom of exposing children, which, in times of distress, is probably more frequent than is ever acknowledged to Europeans. #Quote by Thomas Malthus
Eugenics quotes by Ann Clare LeZotte
#75. They said 'specialist children's wards,'
But they meant children-killing centers.
They said 'final medical assistance'
But they meant murder. #Quote by Ann Clare LeZotte
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#76. Darwinism is not eugenics, but all eugenicists were devoted Darwinists, staring with Darwin's sons Leonard. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Leonard Darwin
#77. Of all the problems which will have to be faced in the future, in my opinion, the most difficult will be those concerning the treatment of the inferior races of mankind. #Quote by Leonard Darwin
Eugenics quotes by George Reisman
#78. The slaves of socialism are slaves, but they are no one's property and therefore no one's loss. #Quote by George Reisman
Eugenics quotes by Bashar Al-Assad
#79. Lebanon was under Israeli occupation, up to its capital, but we did not consider that a disaster. Why? Because it was very clear that there are ways to resist. #Quote by Bashar Al-Assad
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#80. Edward Bellamy's eugenic utopian novel, "Looking Backward" was the inspiration for American Progressivism. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Frederick Charles Copleston
#81. Plato's proposals in this matter are abhorrent to all true Christians. His intentions were, of course, excellent, for he desired the greatest possible improvement of the human race; but his good intentions led him to the proposal of measures which are necessarily unacceptable and repugnant to all those who adhere to Christian principles concerning the value of the human personality and the sanctity of human life. Moreover, it by no means follows that what has been found successful in the breeding of animals, will also prove successful when applied to the human race, for man has a rational soul which is not intrinsically dependent on matter but is directly created by Almighty God. Does a beautiful soul always go with a beautiful body or a good character with a strong body? Again, if such measures were successful - and what does "successful" mean in this connection? - in the case of the human race, it does not follow that the Government has the right to apply such measures. Those who to-day follow, or would like to follow, in the footsteps of Plato, advocating, e.g. compulsory sterilisation of the unfit, have not, be it remembered, Plato's excuse, that he lied at a period anterior to the presentation of the Christian ideals and principles. - 230 #Quote by Frederick Charles Copleston
Eugenics quotes by Al Gore
#82. Our insatiable drive to rummage deep beneath the surface of the earth is a willful expansion of our dysfunctional civilization into Nature. #Quote by Al Gore
Eugenics quotes by Gregory Benford
#83. The earliest depiction of libertarian eugenics may have appeared in a science fiction novel, Robert Heinlein's 1942 tale 'Beyond This Horizon.' #Quote by Gregory Benford
Eugenics quotes by Bertrand Russell
#84. There are three ways of securing a society that shall be stable as regards population. The first is that of birth control, the second that of infanticide or really destructive wars, and the third that of general misery except for a powerful minority. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Eugenics quotes by Barbara Marx Hubbard
#85. One-fourth of humanity must be eliminated from the social body. We are in charge of God's selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death. #Quote by Barbara Marx Hubbard
Eugenics quotes by Jim Keith
#86. Although it has been a carefully guarded secret by the watchdogs of the mainstream media, eugenics programs were never discontinued worldwide, with involuntary sterilization programs continuing in many countries to this day. #Quote by Jim Keith
Eugenics quotes by Alfred Rosenberg
#87. I have the feeling that this Moscow Pact will at some time or other exact vengeance upon National Socialism. #Quote by Alfred Rosenberg
Eugenics quotes by Charles Darwin
#88. I could show fight on natural selection having done and doing more for the progress of civilization than you seem inclined to admit. Remember what risk the nations of Europe ran, not so many centuries ago of being overwhelmed by the Turks, and how ridiculous such an idea now is! The more civilised so-called Caucasian races have beaten the Turkish hollow in the struggle for existence. Looking to the world at no very distant date, what an endless number of the lower races will have been eliminated by the higher civilized races throughout the world. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Eugenics quotes by Andrew Solomon
#89. We applaud the great strides made through genetic identification research, however, we do not condone the use of such information for eugenics and related purposes" ... "The question of what lives are worth living is now answered in doctors' offices instead of in Nazis' T-4 programme. The forces of normalisation seem to be gaining ground. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#90. PROGRESSIVISM = EUGENICS: Centrally Planned economies tempt population control. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by H.G.Wells
#91. I believe that now and always the conscious selection of the best for reproduction will be impossible; that to propose it is to display a fundamental misunderstanding of what individuality implies. The way of nature has always been to slay the hindmost, and there is still no other way, unless we can prevent those who would become the hindmost being born. It is in the sterilization of failure, and not in the selection of successes for breeding, that the possibility of an improvement of the human stock lies. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Eugenics quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#92. The time has already come when each country needs a considered national policy about what size of population, whether larger or smaller than at present or the same, is most expedient. And having settled this policy, we must take steps to carry it into operation. The time may arrive a little later when the community as a whole must pay attention to the innate quality as well as to the mere numbers of its future members. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Eugenics quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#93. As Muller thought about the future of eugenics and the possibility of altering human genomes, he wondered whether Galton and his collaborators had made a fundamental conceptual error. Like Galton and Pearson, Muller sympathized with the desire to use genetics to alleviate suffering. But unlike Galton, Muller began to realize that positive eugenics was achievable only in a society that had already achieved radical equality. Eugenics could not be the prelude to equality. Instead, equality had to be the precondition for eugenics. Without equality, eugenics would inevitably falter on the false premise that social ills, such as vagrancy, pauperism, deviance, alcoholism, and feeblemindedness were genetic ills-while, in fact, they merely reflected inequality. Women such as Carrie Buck weren't genetic imbeciles, they were poor, illiterate, unhealthy, and powerless-victims of their social lot, not of the genetic lottery. The Galtonians had been convinced that eugenics would ultimately generate radical equality-transforming the weak into the powerful. Muller turned that reasoning on its head. Without equality, he argued, eugenics would degenerate into yet another mechanism by which the powerful could control the weak. #Quote by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#94. Hitler learned his eugenics from the infamous "Baur-Fischer-Lenz" book that documented American and British eugenics. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#95. American newspapers frequently offered praise for eugenics just prior to WWII and The Holocaust .... that is, until Hitler revealed what eugenics really looked like. They avoided the subject for decades thereafter. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
The scientific community has done a pronounced amount of hand-wringing about its involvement in the atomic bomb's creation, and a disproportionately absent amount of the soul-searching with respects to its creation of the science of eugenics. The 450,000 deaths due to the bomb are relatively small in the shadow of the many millions dead as a result of National Socialism's eugenic campaign. The casualties of The Holocaust are the casualties of the science of eugenics, which so many scientists had actively campaigned for leading up to World War II. Yet, the scientific community has confronted its complicity with collective silence and sometimes outright censorship. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by David Icke

Eugenics quotes by Tony Judt
#98. And few can deny that welfarism, taken to extremes, carries a whiff of do as you're told!: there were moments in postwar Scandinavia when the enthusiasm for eugenics and social efficiency suggested not just a certain insensitivity to recent history but also to the natural human desire for autonomy and independence. #Quote by Tony Judt
Eugenics quotes by C.S. Lewis
#99. So inveterate is their appetite for Heaven that our best method, at this stage, of attaching them to earth is to make them believe that earth can be turned into Heaven at some future date by politics or eugenics or 'science' or psychology, or what not. Real #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Eugenics quotes by Daniel De Leon
#100. Socialism is practical, in the best sense of the term; a living, vital force of inestimable value to society. #Quote by Daniel De Leon
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#101. The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#102. We should not minimize the great outstanding service of Eugenics for critical and diagnostic investigations. It demonstrates ... that uncontrolled fertility is universally correlated with disease, poverty, overcrowding and the transmission of hereditable traits. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Robert Zubrin
#103. Unlike the campaigns against DDT, nuclear power, and genetically modified crops – but very much like the eugenics movement – the global warming cause is universal enough to serve as the basis of a pseudo-religion. This potential is the subject of remarks by the movement's leaders themselves. #Quote by Robert Zubrin
Eugenics quotes by David Icke
#104. It was these same families [Rothschild, Rockefeller, Harriman, Bush, etc] who funded the eugenics movement which is pledged to remove the lower genetic blood streams and leave only those of superior stock. Eugenics today often goes under the title of 'population control'. The best known of the population control organizations is Planned Parenthood which began life under another name at the London offices of the British Eugenics Society. #Quote by David Icke

Eugenics quotes by Glenn Beck
#109. You got to have an enemy to fight. And when you have an enemy to fight, then you can unite the entire world behind you, and you seize power. That was Hitler's plan. His enemy: the Jew. Al Gore's enemy, the U.N.'s enemy: global warming. Then you get the scientists
eugenics. You get the scientists
global warming. Then you have to discredit the scientists who say, 'That's not right.' And you must silence all dissenting voices. That's what Hitler did. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Eugenics quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#110. Because in [Lenin's] eyes the workers
were only workers and not also customers, he believed they were already slaves under capitalism, and that one did not change their status
when nationalizing all plants and shops.
Socialism substitutes the sovereignty of a dictator, or committee of dictators, for the sovereignty of the consumers. Along with the economic sovereignty of the citizens disappears also their political sovereignty. To the unique production plan that annuls any planning on the part of the consumers corresponds in the constitutional sphere the one party principle that deprives the citizens of any opportunity to plan the course of public affairs. Freedom is indivisible. He who has not the faculty to choose among various brands of canned food or soap, is also deprived of the power to
choose between various political parties and programs and to elect the officeholders. He is no longer a man; he becomes a pawn in the hands of the supreme social engineer. Even his freedom to rear progeny will be taken
away by eugenics. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Eugenics quotes by Jeremy Rifkin

Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#118. Humanity has overcome the food chain, and having surpassed all other predators, has now turned to a strange form of cannibalism: humanity preys upon itself. We cull our own herd. We murder our own children. This is what we call "progress". #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Henry Makow
#119. [ ... ] elite social engineers appear to be aiming at a "hetero-homo" world, i.e. where individuals are bisexual, promiscuous and bereft of family. #Quote by Henry Makow

Eugenics quotes by Gary Wolf
#121. Though social eugenics was discredited long ago, we still often think of the genome in quasi-eugenic terms. When we read about the latest discovery of a link between a gene and a disease, we imagine that we've learned the cause of the disease, and we may even think we'll get a cure by fixing the gene. #Quote by Gary Wolf
Eugenics quotes by Greg Cox
#122. We should definitely keep an eye on the children of course, particularly that little Indian boy you mentioned, the son of Sarina Kaur. The genetically enhanced offspring of Kaur is not someone we can afford to ignore. What was his name again?"
"Noon. Short for Khan Noonien Singh #Quote by Greg Cox
Eugenics quotes by Francis Galton
#123. The aim of eugenics is to represent each class or sect by its best specimens; that done, to leave them to work out their common civilization in their own way. #Quote by Francis Galton

#124. You villains and your creepy eugenics programs are starting to bore me. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
Much ink has been dedicated to determining Charles Darwin's role in "scientific racism." The only way to empirically and scientifically determine his role is to organize the events as a timeline, and thus placing them into context of historical events. Political analysis without historical context is all sail and no rudder. In America we are constantly made aware that both Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born on the same day, in the same year, February 12, 1809. Adrian Desmond and James Moore famous 2009 book, "Darwin's Sacred Cause," leverages this factoid in an effort to place Charles Darwin at par with Abraham Lincoln in the abolition of slavery. This fraudulently steals away credit from Abraham Lincoln, who took a bullet to the head for the cause, and transfers it by inference to an aristocrat whom remained in his plush abode throughout the conflict and never lifted a finger for the cause. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Richard John Neuhaus
#126. Socialism is the religion people get when they lose their religion. #Quote by Richard John Neuhaus
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#127. Neither Fascist Italy nor Spain adopted eugenics as an ideology central to their form of government the way the National Socialist did. However, socialist and progressive nations such as Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Norway did adopt and implement eugenics. This is because eugenics is the safety valve of a centrally planned economy. Central planners like John Maynard Keynes fear a population that is not as meticulously planned as the economy. They fear the unproductive sectors out-breeding the productive sectors of the population. This is also why Keynes was a lobbyist for the British eugenics movement both before and after The Holocaust. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by A.E. Samaan
#128. Past is Prologue
This book was written observing the premise that the seeds of Holocaust denial take root and prosper with misinformation. Clarity and transparency are imperative, as they leave no room for denial theories that would deprive the victims justice, or rob the living of a future. Generations of historians have enthusiastically gone about their craft knowing full well that 'he who owns the past, owns the future'. Improperly documented history, or more precisely, fraudulent versions of history not only deprive the victims of pasts injustices due recognition of their suffering, but also rob the living of a fair chance at a future free from the dangers of repeating past injustices. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Eugenics quotes by Pope John Paul II
#129. I kiss the soil as if I placed a kiss on the hands of a mother, for the homeland is our earthly mother. I consider it my duty to be with my compatriots in this sublime and difficult moment. #Quote by Pope John Paul II

Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#132. Every single case of inherited defect, every malformed child, every congenitally tainted human being brought into this world is of infinite importance to that poor individual; but it is of scarcely less importance to the rest of us and to all of our children who must pay in one way or another for these biological and racial mistakes. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#133. No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child without a permit for parenthood. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by Margaret Sanger
#134. I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan ... I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses ... I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak ... In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. #Quote by Margaret Sanger
Eugenics quotes by David Berlinski
#135. Just who has imposed on the suffering human race poison gas, barbed wire, high explosives, experiments in eugenics, the formula for zyklon b, heavy artillery, pseudo-scientific justifications for mass murder, cluster bombs, attack submarines, napalm, intercontinental missiles , military space platforms and nuclear weapons? If memory serves it was not the Vatican. #Quote by David Berlinski
