Aristotle to Zoos by Peter Medawar, himself a member of the EnglishEugenics Society. Medawar quotes Galton, as follows: “I do not see why any insolence of caste should prevent the gifted class, when they had the power, from treating their compatriots with all kindness, so long as they maintained celibacy. But if these continued to procreate children inferior in moral, intellectual and physical qualities, it is easy to believe the time may come when such persons would be considered as enemies to the State, and to have forfeited all claims to kindness.”
That’s kind of the way the Republican platform struck me this last election. I think they need to go to church regularly, learn a little humility, and then reformulate their thinking for the coming battles, in the political arena. Oh and one other thing, along with smart and rich try to add a little plain old cando American guts to the mix.
