He stated this in his book Descent of Man.
I've read it, I know. He never advocated anything like the "social darwinists" (a better term would be social spencerists, as he was the person who came up with the phrase"survival of the fittest" ).
Those ideas long predate Darwin's birth.
So I am left wondering, why bother mentioning it at all in the movie? It's not an historical exploration of Nazi Germany, so why mention it, if the purpose is not to smear evolution by association?
A lot of books were banned in Nazi Germany because they were anti-intellectual. However the elite Nazi's could do what they liked and believe what they liked. Perhaps there is misinformation on this film, but the film was getting this bad information from German sources.
A lot of books, including those of the man who Stein is trying to link to the Nazi ideals, and specifically to the holocaust. That doesn't make sense, unless the books were unrelated.
Thank you for not hurling the F word at me. I cannot read with a p***s in my eyeball! blaugh
