Upon returning from Germany in 1934, where more than 5,000 people per month were being forcibly sterilized, the California eugenics leader C. M. Goethe bragged to a colleague:

"You will be interested to know that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program. Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought . . . I want you, my dear friend, to carry this thought with you for the rest of your life, that you have really jolted into action a great government of 60 million people."
That sounds like one of those "ironic in hindsight" quotes, you know? Like he might have felt great about it at the time but it haunts him for the rest of his life after the full extent of the Holocaust comes out.

Of course, that'd be the fictional version. In reality, dude might have been all "FUCK YEAH DEAD JEWS" until the end of his life.

My exact thoughts. It seems almost too sinister to believe now. If I read this in a fictional work I'd think it some really crude foreshadowing. Maybe the person who said it was a bitter time traveller.

The guy was the founder of the Eugenics Society of Northern California (which was apparently the most eugeni-zealous of the US states) and a land developer who (according to his Wikipedia page, though I don't think that bit was cited) refused to sell said land to Asians and Mexicans, and he apparently stayed a supporter of race eugenics even after the war was over when everybody else was going "WHOA WHOA When we said kill all non-aryans we didn't mean like kill kill them. Honestly guys!".

Also the founder of the Sacramento California State University.

Yeah but he was talking to his colleague, who was nameless. We have no idea what nameless Joe felt afterward.

Eugenics was incredibly popular amongst progressives before Hitler came along. Tommy Douglas, the fellow that brought Medicare to Canada, wrote his MA thesis on it.

The person supporting regenerating health, when asked why you can see when shot in the eye justified it as 'you put on an eyepatch'. When asked what happens when you are then shot in the other eye, he said that you put an eyepatch on that eye. When asked how you'd be able to see, he said that your first eye would have healed by then.

IIRC, people theorize that if not Hitler, we proably would have to earn our right to reproduce, and people like criminals and other "unfit" people would be outright sterilized.

Kot finishes his morning routine in the same way he always does, by burning a scale replica of Saint Basil's Cathedral on the windowsill.

No it'd probably be more like everyone can reproduce up until they become homeless or poor then *bam* sterilized

Sort of like how them crazy folks say rights are given by the state and can be taken away rather than rights being for people and not for the state, only with reproductive rights instead of any of the others

Welcome to Yurop thread, where feta is removed from the premises

Have you considered Hitler face stabbing calculations?
