The book paints Herbert Spencer as the eugenics-championing bad guy and posits that Darwin and Darwinism had little influence on Hitler’s master race ethic.
I have clearly argued in all my works that Hitler was an eclectic thinker who drew on many different intellectual influences — some of them contradictory.
The authors admit that Darwin was a racist who promoted racial struggle. They are likely to infuriate quite a few people of varying persuasions.
Lewis’s advice seems eerily applicable to our own situation, just substitute “pandemic” for “war.”
The year so far has delivered a stunning lesson in the fragility of freedom and of civilization.
