A bit lengthy, but compelling none the less. It is terrifying to think that such evil people existed, and perhaps even more terrifying that they still exist today, masquerading their cold-blooded intents under the guise of science and the "betterment" of human society. If you thought that eugenics and ethnic cleansing ended with the nazis, take a close look at the major heads of the green movement. Many are calling for a culling of the human race, and where else would they start but with the sick and disabled. How is it that in a world where we pride ourselves on being so compassionate and tolerant, there can be such a horrific and outright evil way of thought? Interesting, frightening, very important to read and learn the history about.
