Full text: Problems in eugenics

F. C. S. Schiller. Education and Eugenics. 
the aristocratic principle, in so far as eugenics sanctions it, is not wedded to 
any special form of government; it means only that we should not commit 
the folly, knowingly or unknowingly, of trying to eradicate the best. 
Finally, let me point out, that the infusion of a eugenical spirit into our 
educational methods, which I have sketched, does not interfere with any 
one’s freedom, nor require any legislation; it is wholly an affair of trans­ 
forming sentiment, and would mainly influence individuals by pervading the 
social atmosphere they breathe; if, subsequently, legislation came about, 
it would only register the conclusions of public opinion and experience.
