Nazi Germany and eugenics, James Watson
Interviewee: James Watson.
The problem is that we're not genetically equal, and that mutation is an, been an essential feature of life because it gives you the new variability which allows you to evolve. So we're constantly creating new forms of humans, many of whom just because it's by chance it's creating it, there's no design, these humans have no chance of really competing with most other humans. So what do you do with the unfit? You can give them charity, you can try and cure their diseases, there are a variety of things you can do, or Hitler's solution was just kill them. But of course it wouldn't have created the perfect race because a new unfit would have been created. And so it's a constant problem that we have to deal with.
