The most devastating ideology of the 20th century was not Fascism, nor Communism. It was eugenics, which killed more people than the other two combined. Further, eugenics is still an overwhelmingly powerful force in today's world. And yet, there has been little or no resistance to eugenics since 1945. In fact, few people know what it is.

To understand the past century and prepare for the new century, you must read The Roots of Racism and Abortion. If you do not have a firm grasp of eugenics, you cannot understand the return of academic racism, American silence in the face of China's savage depopulation policies, the debate over welfare reform, the promises and threats in health care reform, immigration . . . Eugenics affects the way you think about the beginning of life, the end of life, and a lot of what happens in between. Ignore it at your own peril.

About the Author:

John Cavanaugh-O'Keefe has been a controversial activist for three decades. His views on nonviolence led him to oppose the war in Vietnam, and then to oppose abortion. A left-winger in a right-wing movement, he has never fit well in any pigeon-hole. His articles on eugenics, especially population control and bioethics, have appeared in journals around the world.
