The Eugenicists

The United States of America has many secrets in its past—some secrets are darker than others.  After slavery “ended”, and as the frontier closed with the death of the American Indian, a new approach to controlling human populations gained popularity in the United States, namely that of eugenics.  First truly developed in England, the pseudoscience of eugenics was quickly exported to the U.S. at the start of the 20th century, and largely funded by a corporate elite including Carnegie, the Rockefellers, and the Harrimans.

The term “eugenics” was first coined by Sir Francis Galton in 1883, from the Greek eu, meaning “good/well”, and -genēs, meaning “born”.  Essentially a social philosophy which advocated for the elimination of those deemed “unfit”—the quest of which led to the forced sterilization of roughly 70,000 individuals in the U.S. alone, and found fullest expression in Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich—eugenics was a direct contradiction to basic human dignity.  Surprisingly, many notable individuals of the time expressed great zeal for this ideology, by creating societies, associations, and other think tanks that wrote legislation in support of forced sterilizations and other measures.  For instance, it may shock you to learn that Woodrow Wilson, when governor of New Jersey, signed such a bill in 1912.   It may also come as a shock that the eugenic impulse is quietly at work today, in various forms, with the very same intention—absolute control over the population. 

Up next, a plan to sterilize populations by adding chemical agents to the water supply.



Today’s post is the first of a planned series, entitled The Eugenicists, which will investigate the lives of some of the most recognized and brilliant minds of the past and present.  Unfortunately, the individuals we will be focusing upon maintained or currently maintain a sordid outlook upon humanity, and demanded or do still demand complete control over the lives of others.  The revelations presented here will help guide the next phase of The Moonshiner.

The title of this post, “YOUTH IS (not always) WASTED ON THE YOUNG…”, is an innocent enough quote (emphasis added) from Nobel Prize winning Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw.   The series will be presented in no particular order—for example today’s post on George Bernard Shaw was inspired by a group of four teenage students from Chicago.  Their participation in a recent spoken word poetry contest shows the immediacy, the wherewithal, and the courage of our youth to stand up to the tyranny of their world, and fight back with their most important weapon in their arsenal: their minds.

So Mr. Shaw, as the two videos below show, you were wrong about the validity of life, and also that The Youth is (not always) Wasted on the Young.
