The ongoing practice of Eugenics is a very little know reality to most people and yet its practice impacts the entire planet to this very day. As with most things those with the most wealth and power are doing, it is totally covered up and hidden within harmless sounding programs. This short video explains how Eugenics began in UK, Darwin's cousin, and USA, hundreds of college courses and multiple organizations. Eugenics went to Germany via the US, copied our laws, and evolved into the Holocaust. First the mentally ill were sterilized, then euthanized. This is the stage that zyklon-B gas was used instead of carbon monoxide or lethal injection. Next the elderly in institutions were euthanized in the same manner.
This documentary depicts the U.S. Eugenic legislation throughout the early 20th Century and chronicles the compulsory sterilization faced by many Americans. "War on the Weak" continues to analyze negative eugenics by discussing the U.S. Supreme Court case of Buck v. Bell. Furthermore, the parallels present among U.S. and Nazi ideologies on the nature of eugenics are presented, along with an exposition on the affinity Nazi scientists had for U.S. eugenics laws. The documentary concludes with a look at modern genetic research and leaves the viewer with the hopeful message of a society free of ailments but warns of the dangers on science that is not kept in check with the moral values of humanity.
