4.0 out of 5 stars Politically Incorrect, but still Relevant! November 11, 2008
By D. Reed
This is a deeply conservative book in that it demonstrates the tension between Freedom and Equality. However, Stoddard's prescription, Eugenics, may strike some as radical.But, from Stoddard's point-of-view, the alternative, the collapse of Civilization, would be even more unpleasant.

I would like to see a synthesis of this book and Murray's "The Bell Curve" to discuss the effects of the increase in the low- IQ population to America, and whether it will be possible to maintain our free society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ninety Year Old Book Explains America Today August 25, 2013
By Stanley
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Stoddard's book was published in 1922. The world had just seen the Russian revolution come to fruition and Germany was in chaos. In America various groups seemed determined to radically change society including the IWW wobblies, anarchists, syndacalists, and various shades of socialists. Remember the turn of the century assination of the American president by an anarchist and the bombings of Wall Street and the American Attorney General's home. Stoddard's book attempts to explain this phenomenon of unrest, which he called the revolt against civilization.

He starts with an explanation of the Iron Rule of Inequality showing that all people are not created equal and that as a result there are large sectors of the population that feel cheated in life. As these folks see it others simply have it better. These persons, not accomplishing as much in life and feeling cheated, are the undermen. In simple terms Stoddard goes on to explain these folks are ginned up by unhappy and perhaps unbalanced leaders to attack the social establishment that support western civilization.

You guessed it. The Christian church, schools, the family, representative government must all be attacked and eliminated and those persons supporting these institutions must go too. Now what Stoddard does is remarkable in its simplicity: he quotes the leaders of this revolt and it scares the bejeebers out of you. Science for example must be changed. Physics should emphasize the dynamics of class warfare. Oh, how about smart people? It seems they must be eliminated too or at least made to work in menial jobs for certainly they might feel superior to their lesser endowed brothers. Crazy? Why did Pol Pot make city dwellers go work on farms in Cambodia? What about the Red Guards in China?

America the way it used it to be when it was normal. Don't expect it to ever return any time soon.
