These claims were often accepted without critical analysis. On the basis of this fallacious notion of genetics, concerns were raised that “civilization” (usually a code word for those who were well-to-do and descended from Northern Europeans) was in danger of genetic degeneration, because “bad” genes (ascribed to those who were poor or who were not descended from Northern Europeans) would soon outnumber “good” genes. To prevent this presumed catastrophe, organizations were formed to encourage couples with “good” genetic stock to breed and to advocate ways to prevent those with “bad” genes from having offspring.
