What is impressive in all this is the sheer quantity of modern evidence that is available to illustrate the author's empirical claims. Time and again, Lynn is able to report highly significant dysgenic correlations of around -.20 between the traits that concern him and indices of achieved fertility. The evidence is principally from the West; but, by using educational and socio-economic data in relation to fertility, the same underlying trends can arguably be detected in other countries too. (The exception is in Black Africa, where contraception is so little used that typical upper-class families have around the same six children as do those of agricultural workers).
Despite the total lack of interest of today's criminologists in genetic factors and fertility, Lynn finds evidence suggesting that "the fertility [of British] criminals is 77 percent higher than that of the British population as a whole." Thus Lynn can even begin to address the West's problem of ceaselessly rising criminality.Read more ›
To example, the author claims, that roman catholicism was bad to societies, because of "dysgenic" celibacy.Well, the clerical celibacy began in Spain, in V Century.Only about 1,000 years ago, it became a rule.Among the 30 most developed countries in the world, roman catholicism has more coutries, than all the rest of religions together.The author also is against the pope's views about anti-conceptionals.At the same time, Europe is fading, because catholic(and protestant) women aren't following pope's advices.Islam is growing very fast, because of big levels of fertility.
Since 1940 decade, eugenics exchanged its name:neo-malthusianism and ecology are the names for eugenics.The crook that wrote this book, must go to Greenpeace or Al-qaida, because he is a liar and a plagiarist.The same fakes of this book were showed in books writen by Charles B. Davenport, more than 100 years ago.
