Eugenics and Other Evils
The Merriam Webster Definition of eugenics is “the practice or advocacy of controlled selective breeding of human populations, as by sterilization, to improve the population’s genetic composition.” Source: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/eugenics
The term eugenics as a practice and field of study was invented by Francis Galton in 1883… based on the recent work of his cousin, Charles Darwin, the Mendelian genetics and August Weismann’s theory of germ plasma, that says that hereditary information is transmitted only by germ cells from the gonads (ovaries and testicles), not somatic cells.
Galton defined eugenics as “the study of all agencies under human control which can improve or impair the racial quality of future generations.” Eugenics was later described as a social movement to improve the human species by using technology.
The term has a strong negative valence due to its historical connotations about selective reproductive programs, concentration camps, and medical experiments and mass extermination promoted by the German Nazi regime in the Second World.
