So, I’m reading Larry Correia’s fisking of social justice warriors (again), and he says the following:
Yes, Lovecraft was a racist. He was a 1930s Democrat. It is actually kind of hard to find 1930s democrats who weren’t racists. Eugenics then was the “scientific” equivalent to Global Warming today. The “science was settled”. Proper good thinking folks didn’t question it and the world’s governments used Eugenics as an excuse for all sorts of programs that seem insane to us today.
Hoooooly poop. Mind blown. It’s like exactly the same thing. Dubious but well-accepted science used as a smokescreen for all manner of government overreach and intrusion.
Mr. Correia, I salute you, sir.
