Eugenics and Other Evils (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by G. K. Chesterton

In Eugenics and Other Evils (1922), subtitled “An Argument Against the Scientifically Organized Society,” Chesterton bravely battles with what he ridicules as the “Feeble-Minded Bill," a measure that would support a British political policy of sterilization and other methods of social cleansing that were being embraced in other European countries and the United States. With compelling arguments he reveals how eugenics is one more tool used by the State to suppress the landless poor.
