the welfare state, evolution, & racism.
I have always found it ironic how many on the left.. most of them devout darwinists.. suddenly become bleeding heart champions of human life. Instead of worrying about overpopulation, one of their biggest boogie men in the survival of the earth, they want to provide breeding grounds for unchecked population growth.. both by the welfare state & 'international aid', aka world redistribution.
It makes me realize that the issues they whine about are not really important to them but the destruction of capitalism, america, & the individual.
Margaret Sanger was an honest ideologue, without a hidden agenda. You cannot say that about leftists these days.
Most liberals are horrified at any suggestion of racism. Yet many promote a racist policy of welfare, that keeps the ghetto poor trapped in a gulag of dependence & racial discrimination. Many in the eugenics movement, including margaret sanger, the founder of planned parenthood, were at least consistent in their views.
'organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease. Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding and perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents and dependents.' ~margaret sanger
Sanger saw charity to the poor as destructive to the human race. She & other 'social biologists' preferred working with evolution to strengthen the human genetic pool, & through abortion & population control, limit the 'undesirables' who did most of the populating. They did not favor helping the poor, but sterilizing them. Social engineers saw aid to the poor as weakening the gene pool, since the fittest should survive, not the weak.
'it [charity] encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as i think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.' ~margaret sanger
classic liberals were more libertarian in their views of individual rights, & opposed the eugenics movement. Their roots were mostly religious.. Helping the poor & needy. They saw social biology as an enemy of humanity. But now that it has been sanctified by the progressives & the left as a 'women's rights' issue, liberals can support eugenics, abortion, population control, & all their racist roots without having to worry about the label of 'racist'.
