In the article, The Case for Eugenics in a Nutshell, Marian Van Court claims that “human intelligence is largely hereditary”. This is a very unusual statement because intelligence depends on a large amount of factors, not on genetics. Human intelligence cannot be hereditary. For starters, when a child is being created, the genes of two people are mixed together, but there is assurance that the child will not be exactly like either parent (Ridley 12). This might explain that the intelligence of the parents won’t be passed down to the child when the offspring cannot even be so similar to parent.
What are parents’ wishes for their children? Some may answer having tall height, nose, big eyes, white skin. Others may answer kindness, intelligence and good health. Will you do if you can make babies, which you really want? It is natural that parents want their children to have a good life.
Eugenics has been around for over 100 years, and even though it has not been as active as it was in the 20th century it is still seen today through the medical advances that we have made. It has helped humans advance and create different fields in the science and applied arts industries over many years of research, from psychology to biology, from statistics to anthropology and many more. Eugenics has seen its good times and its bad over many years and many countries and a lot of the information could not be covered pertaining to it all. Eugenics has been seen in many forms over the past 100 years even though the die down was not long after the start up.
Your post was very well written. I agree with the points you made on nativism and the negative eugenics. The United States did everything they could to prevent the “perfect” citizen from having a part of politics, which included the Literacy Test, which most foreigners could not pass (primary sources, Literacy Test). The Immigration Act of 1924 allowed The United States to keep out unwanted forgieners, which resulted in a poor relationship with Japan like you stated in your post (Sinke, Pivotal Moment Video). Like Sinke said in the pivotal moments video “we only want certain people to be here” (Pivtoal Moment video, Suzanne
A world called Pluton, where there is gender discrimination and females are superior to the males. Growing the population is Pluton’s main purpose. Herein, having the ability to give birth is power, thus females are dominant creatures as they are created with a womb which is able to carry an infant for thirty-six weeks. The only ‘capability’ that men have is the ability of passing the sperm on to the female to bore a child. The superiority of the female is felt strongly at the workplace, home and community at large.
Analysis of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Everyday humans are faced with racial prejudice and societal stereotypes. These are, by no means, new topics of discussion. Such issues took hold in society centuries ago. Not only is it a burden on the minorities, but it has negatively affected humanity as a whole regardless of ethnicity.
The First Amendment is the freedom of religion, speech, and the press. I feel like this amendment is most obvious one that we can’t change. We live in America where we are free to believe and say anything, so this one will never go away, I almost guarantee it. In this essay I will tell reasons why I think it is a great amendment. (Pros) Let’s start with the holocaust.
By ELIZABETH AXIAK NAZI EUGENICS REINSTATED AS THE NORM; ALL OF US WHO AREN’T DESIGNER MAY FACE THE CHAMBER. First there is disenfranchisement, then destruction of their entire livelihoods leading to impoverishment, followed by incarceration without edible food or drinkable water and finally, there is extermination.
The Evolutionism or Creationism Debate The evolutionism-reationism debate has been going on for centuries among christians and scientists. However, creationism is said to have more logical proof of their points being the strongest. According to Charles Darwin, Natural selection is the process whereby organisms better adapted to their environment tend to survive and produce more offspring. The theory of its action was first fully expounded by Charles Darwin, and it is now regarded as be the main process that brings about evolution.
In a world where mass media translates to power and control, it is certain that advertising companies would do everything in their power to be at the top of the wheel of success. Despite already using deceptive tricks such as spin tactics, where campaigns are founded on biased perceptions to win the public’s favor, this proves to be insufficient as advertising companies are always trying to reinvent “creativity” by featuring controversial issues such as gang rape as shown through fashion powerhouse Dolce & Gabbana’s spring/summer 2007 ready-to-wear collection advertisement, where a female model was pinned down by a male model while other male models look on. The ad, controversial as it is, has since been banned in many countries, however, mass
