H.G. Wells: Sterilize the ‘Failures’ of Society

“The way of nature has always been to slay the hindmost, and there is still no other way, unless we can prevent those who would become the hindmost being born. It is in the sterilization of failures, and not in the selection of successes for breeding, that the possibility of an improvement of the human stock lies.”-H.G. Wells, author of The Time Machine and War of the Worlds
