Format: Hardcover
Charles Galton Darwin, the author of "The Next Million Years," was a physicist and eugenicist and the grandson of Charles Darwin. Published in 1952, Mr. Darwin's book is amazingly prescient about what the next fifty years would bring: energy shortage (oil), food shortage, and the "pressures" of overpopulation. While the author speculates what the remedies can or might be implemented for resolution of these problems, Mr. Darwin is primarily interested in the essential problem - Man -- and how his essential problematic human nature can be perfected from the wild animal that he is to one that is controlled and perfected so as to reach his or her maximum effectiveness in a world of limited resources. Thus, it is not until Chapter VIII of this 11-chaptered work that the general dullness and mechanical verbal probity of the rhetoric disappears and the reader is palpably confronted with a horrifying but superficially scientific creed which asserts that inheritable wealth comes from the inherited ability of successful and wealthy families, and that because these wealthy familes, generation after generation, have proven themselves "successful" because of their consistent "success" through time, they, therefore, must be of superior intelligence and ability over the rest of mankind, and, concomitantly, these families, and the individual members of these families, alone are fit to be the elite and to rule over and control the rest of the human race.

Charles Galton Darwin foresees a future in which human beings are farmed and bred like animal stock (page 184), each to a specialized purpose (including the use of drugs and artificial use of hormones to remove the sexual desire out of "inferior" human beings), completeley controlled by the so-called successful elite.

This book really does show the true mindset of the Anglo-American Eugenicist Mentality. This book shows how the "Ruling Classes Think". These people do not possess empathy, and believe that if you cannot afford children, being given the few to no opportunities in the "Fascist Corporate System" we live in, that you should not have them and become sterilized. After reading this book, I wish to revoke my United States Citizenship, and immigrate to the "Democratic People's Republic Of Korea".

Sincerely,

John Angelo LaPaglia

The engineering of humanity by technocratic elites as Galton Darwin, is a symptom of a bunch of humanity hating scum! For thousands of years every society has breed a technocratic elite that would envision themselves as supreme rulers of humanity. It is up too you to think and protect yourself from scum as the Darwins.

Format: Hardcover
I tried top read online this trash-book, here in Brazil. This book was writen by Sir Charles Galton Darwin (1887-1962), a grandson of Charles Darwin. And such as Charles Darwin, he was an eugenist.
And this book was writen in 1950 decade, when the eugenists became claiming that they were now under then new titles of "malthusianists" or "neo-malthusianists". This trash-book is divided into eleven parts. The first is the introduction and the last is the epilogue. Second part has as title "population". The third part has as title "The four revolutions".
The introduction is a strange misture of nothing with value, lies and believes.
In the chapter about population, page 37, the author follows the same weird believes preached today by Greepeace and WWF. He is cleary against the improvements of live of persons, by a construction of a dam in India.
Even, when it anything with value, there's flaws.
One example is when he talks, about celibacy in Catholic Church. Repeating decades old eugenics' arguments against celibacy, while he forgest that European Catholic countries became far better than China, that had a system with his admiration.
The chapter about limitation of populations, he claims sterilizations for Malthusian reazons, while remembering eugenics. In fact,the author was a knowed eugenist. Malthusian lies are spread in all this book. The author also tells dozens of agronomical lies, repeated today by mafias such as Greepeace.
The last chapter is the epilogue and is even worse that the chapters. The author is pessimistic and wrong, about the world's future.
