My coauthor, DB has written a follow-up on his blog to an excellent post he wrote here previously. He notes a recent example where a politician has been promoting modern eugenics. This stood out to me in what he wrote:
The theories of evolution and eugenics have had a dehumanizing affect on the world, which has been evidenced by the last one hundred and fifty years of history. The seeds of these despotic theories are being used to indoctrinate our children in public and even private schools, just as my generation was indoctrinated in the fifties and sixties!
