In this episode we address two ideological fields that were exacerbated by the discovery of evolution: scientific racism, which is an attempt to justify racist stereotypes and power structures through the use of scientific aesthetics and tropes; and eugenics, which attempts to exploit evolutionary principles in order to enhance the human race via direct intervention in reproductive autonomy. Dan McGinnis returns as guest.
This episode is part two of our extended look at the history of fascism.
