Darwin’s Racists is an uncommon book in that it not only covers the events of the past as they stem from evolutionary thinking, but also stimulates thought about the future and the consequences that result. The division of the book into three sections entitled Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, catapults the reader’s attention to the future as once again evolutionary thinking is taken to its logical conclusion.
In the section entitled Yesterday, Darwin’s personal history, a review of significant historical figures who used Darwin’s thinking to justify mass murder and genocide are succinctly presented. Also a review of frauds and mistakes in the purported line of human ancestors strike an excellent balance between the amount of information and clarity of exposition. What is taught in our schools – evolution – and what is tolerated in our public schools – everything except Christianity is also well documented.
The section entitled Today deals with the change from our Christian principle based past to the subtle promotion of socialism and preparation for loss of freedom in the future. A damning partial list of activities of the ACLU is given and this book also lays out the role of the media in molding rather than simply reporting the news.
In the section entitled Tomorrow a very clear case is made that the thinking behind the events that took place in Nazi Germany will not be a one-time occurrence, as elitist thinking is once again rearing its ugly head, and will be manifested through rationing of health care. Those who decide who is most deserving of life will receive the more expensive forms of health care. Extending the same evolutionary based logic propels the push for genetic engineering and cloning, and will determine who will qualify for them. But even more sinister is the prospect that those who disagree with evolutionary thinking and the decisions that are made as a result of it will suffer persecution.
The most striking quality of this book is the ease with which it is read. This book also exercises excellent use of a gold mine of quotations by evolutionists, the political admirers of Darwin, and those opposed to evolution. Extensive footnotes provide documentation of the quotations. The device of posing many thoughts in the form of a question is useful to stimulate the reader to active participation in the debate that is going on in our society. In a few sentences, however, this device is overused in what are clearly declarative sentences.
Anyone who cares about their future and the future of the next generation should read Darwin’s Racists and then prepare themselves to speak out and take action before it is no longer possible. The physical and spiritual future of millions is at stake.
