Ask a Eugenicist
Science vs. Public Opinion

childehassamthesonata

Frederick Childe-Hassam, The Sonata

968 words

It seems like there’s a total “disconnect” on this issue [eugenics] between science on the one hand, and popular opinion, on the other.

Blind Cyclops:
The Strange Case of Doctor Fredric Wertham

Fredric Wertham, 1895–1981

1,247 words

In 1954 an obscure psychiatrist penned a book called Seduction of the Innocent which almost put paid to the entire comic book industry in the United States. The whole incident is almost forgotten today, but it is highly instructive over how “fire-storms” and cultural wars can break out. It is also reasonably true to say that–unlike the parallel film industry–it took American comics about three decades to fully ingest and recover from Doctor Wertham’s assault.
