Eugenics: the skeleton that rattles loudest in the left’s closet


Having suffered through a weekend of unbearable news, and watching Santorum start his long ride into obscurity, what could I post about today. In desperation, I somehow stumbled upon History 2 channel mega long program covering the beginnings of our great nation on Sunday. Washington of course, was the central character. After about six hours of it, I did feel somewhat renewed in energy. With all that these early men and women sacrificed, can we not do all that we can? This brings me back to Santorum. While I share most of his personal beliefs, that is what they are. Personal. But unfortunately, he is unable to frame the issues in a positive way. The left will make him look like a Conservative nut case. I do know what he means. If the State had its way, his daughter Bella, would not have received the necessary care that would keep his daughter alive. That is a true fact. So I will give him a shot at support. Here is why.

Please check out the “Complete Lives System” espoused by Rahm Emanuel’s Physcian brother and Berwick to understand how the rationing will occur.  The Obama Rationing Plan- why seniors fears are real,  Read Here. And “ Principles for Allocation of Scarce Medical Resources” by Ezekiel Emanuel. Lancet Article. Rahm Emanuel’s brother. You will not sleep well tonight

To follow-up on my premise, I snagged this from “The Guardian”. Just a reminder of what this whole thing really is all about:

Socialism’s one-time interest in eugenics is dismissed as an accident of history. But the truth is far more unpalatable.

Eugenics went into steep decline after 1945. Most recoiled from it once they saw where it led – to the gates of Auschwitz. The infatuation with an idea horribly close to nazism was steadily forgotten. But we need a reckoning with this shaming past. Such a reckoning would focus less on today’s advances in selective embryology, and the ability to screen out genetic diseases, than on the kind of loose talk about the “underclass” that recently enabled the prime minister to speak of “neighbours from hell” and the poor as if the two groups were synonymous.

Progressives face a particular challenge, to cast off a mentality that can too easily regard people as means rather than ends. For in this respect a movement is just like a person: it never entirely escapes its roots.

It is eugenics, the belief that society’s fate rested on its ability to breed more of the strong and fewer of the weak. So-called positive eugenics meant encouraging those of greater intellectual ability and “moral worth” to have more children, while negative eugenics sought to urge, or even force, those deemed inferior to reproduce less often or not at all. The aim was to increase the overall quality of the national herd, multiplying the thoroughbreds and weeding out the runts.

Such talk repels us now, but in the prewar era it was the common sense of the age. Most alarming, many of its leading advocates were found among the luminaries of the Fabian and socialist left, men and women revered to this day. Thus George Bernard Shaw could insist that “the only fundamental and possible socialism is the socialisation of the selective breeding of man”, even suggesting, in a phrase that chills the blood, that defectives be dealt with by means of a “lethal chamber”.

    Funny, Planned Parenthood is still strongly going in the Eugenics department. The problems is when you start to think you are superior to other people this is the conclusion you come to.

    I have no clue what the opposite of Eugenics is but that is what is happening. The people that can take care of themselves are having 2 or less kids, while the people on welfare and other public assistance are trying to repopulate the world.

    The eugenics movement never went away, but just changed its name and tactics after the holocaust. I don’t believe for a minute the eugenicists were appalled at the killing of the Jews, they were probably excited by it- their plan all along. You do know that Henry Ford’s picture was hung prominently in HItler’s office.
    I can’t recommend highly enough the documentary Maafa 21 highly enough. It is a blow-by-blow of the eugenicists policies from Darwin to the present time. It’s better than anything on the subject you’d find on TV for sure.

    You’ll notice that eugenicists are found in both political parties and switch from one to the other. Money and arrogance are greater risk factors for being a eugenicist than political affiliation.

    I read that Guardian article this weekend and also integrated it into my blog post today. Great minds… !

    I also share your thinking on Santorum. He’s a little too Big Statist for me, but that describes the entire field other than Paul, but I believe he’s a sincere man and he is equipped to be president. Sadly, I think you are correct that they will successfully paint his as a dangerous rightwing theocrat.

      I believe as you do that he is a sincere man. His political instincts are lacking compared to what he is up agains. It will be abortion, contraception and the left will never get off of it, and he apparently feels obliged to stick with these topics instead of moving on. Hostages– Pipeline.. come on Rick.

    Those that wish to play God believe there are six billion nonproductive people on this planet that need to be irradicated. How chilling is that?

    Every American needs to read that article in the Guardian and start connecting the dots with BHO’s recent mandate regarding contraception.
