Synopsis: BORN EVIL OR BORN GENIUS – THE LEADING CAUSE OF CRIME & TURMOIL IN TODAY’S WORLD.
In this controversial and shocking book, author Barry Sudiker proves, through research and statistics, that both genius and criminality are inherited. He maintains that heredity plays a role in everything from I.Q. and eye color to morals and propensity for evil. Even more stunning are the author’s case studies and examples that support his theories.
In the classic nature vs. nurture debate, Sudiker insists that environmental accounts for only three percent of one’s behavior. Genetics and pre-dispositions account for the rest, which are passed down from the parents and grandparents.
Many so-called juvenile delinquents are children of criminals and drug-addicts, and their natural personalities are at odds with society’s expectations. When even the best-intentioned professionals try to inspire these young adults to change their behavior, they are generally met with insurmountable resistance.
Sudiker points out many examples where attempts at behavior modification have failed society, and he proposes new ways of dealing with criminals-in-training and other negative elements.
Not since THE BELL CURVE has an author dared to discuss the role of genetics in this forthright manner.
BORN EVIL OR BORN GENIUS will surely be one of the most controversial and most discussed books in this genre.
A fascinating study of behavior and its consequences, this work will make a huge impact in our thinking about crime...and how to prevent it.
The author delves into topics as controversial as Eugenics, stating: "Genetics, by shaping a human being’s characteristics, determines everything from intelligence to propensity to commit murder. "The criminal element of society therefore is effected by genetics, and if this can be harnessed, genetics can be used to reduce crime in the world and help advance and improve humankind."
BORN EVIL OR BORN GENIUS is sure to cause much-spirited debate.
