Exposing the progressive movement’s historical embrace of racist eugenics
09/20/2020 // Gregory Van Dyke // Views

Independent Institute research fellow and professor emeritus of economics in College of Business at the University of Nevada, Reno, Thomas Cargill, joins Ben Domenech on the Federalist Radio Hour. They discuss the lack of educational materials covering the history of the progressive movement, particularly their implementation of eugenics and forced sterilization in order to attain a better society.

According to Cargill, there are two reasons why there is a lack of teaching on these subjects. First, the progressives who spurred on this movement have been “very successful in dominating American education.” Secondly, Cargill claims that progressives wanted to distance themselves from the eugenics ideology that Hitler claimed in the 1930s.

Cargill also explained how figures like Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger felt justified in participating and enabling eugenics because they believed they were contributing to the forward movement of society.

“You could be a racist and still a moralist because what you were doing was ridding society of the unfit so society would be more efficient,” Cargill said.

“Eugenics and progressivism were, in a sense, made for each other because you had the progressives that said, ‘Look we have all these instruments that we can use to improve society and now we have this science that tells us how to do it. And of course we do have our problem because of the dilution of the quality of the American society,'” Cargill added.
