John Glad is a brave scholar. He here ventures onto the high seas of contemporary intellectual interdict. The
term eugenics has been on an ideological hit list both by the irrational left as well as by an intimidated public.
However, as Dr. Glad points out clearly and authoritatively, there is virtually no factual basis for what can only
be seen as a totemic reaction. The mere mention of eugenics elicits knee-jerk reaction—

blind prejudice with fact and possibility. The world is in a descending spiral today, with 6.5 billion people, going
