Second, to have Congress set up a special department for the study of population problems, and appoint a Parliament of Population Directors representing the various branches of science.
This body to direct and control the population through Birth rates and immigration, and direct its distribution over the country according to national needs consistent with the taste, fitness and interest of the individuals.
The main objects of the Population Congress would be:
(a) to raise the level and increase the general intelligence of our population.
(b) to increase the population slowly by keeping the birth rate at its present level of fifteen, decreasing the death rate below its present mark of 11.
(c) keep the doors of Immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feeble-minded, idiots, morons, insane, syphiletic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred from entrance by the Immigration Laws of 1924.
(d) apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization, and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.
(e) to insure the country against future burdens of maintenance for numerous offspring as may be born of feeble-minded parents, the government would pension all persons with transmissible disease who voluntarily consent to sterilization.
(f) the whole dysgenic population would have its choice of segregation or sterilization.
(g) there would be farm lands and homesteads where these segregated persons would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives.
This is just............ wow. There's not much I can say to follow this up, really. Except this: Do not take these people lightly. Do not just brush this aside. And don't think this is just something that was talked about 100 years ago and so it's ok, no need to worry anymore. Progressivism is alive and well today, and once progressives get ideas they do not just let them go. They merely change their language. Theodore Roosevelt was the first progressive to propose nationalized healthcare. What did Obama do in 2009? Edward House(Wilson's mirror-self) wrote the book on unaccountable czars(administrators) who only report to the president. What has Obama surrounded himself with? Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood. What has this administration fought so hard to make sure doesn't get de-funded? If all the puzzle pieces fit, then you are actually looking at the finished product. Do not brush these things aside, or anything else you see from progressivism that makes you scratch your head and think "there's something wrong here". Your instincts are serving you well. My goal is to make sure your mind and your instincts are in sync, with knowledge, by removing the shadows that these progressives have for far too long lived in. No more. Sunlight is the best disinfectant for this disease.
