763. AMERICAN EUGENICS PARTY PLATFORM (Continued) 7. ROLE OF WOMEN The equalitarian and the overly-dependent outlooks toward women are incorrect. Women are not completely similar or different but are a combination of mental factors which are described as "complementary, opposite, and equal." The similarities allow women to do all routine tasks in society (menial to professional) and some types of research, but the differences (which are appropriate for the home) cause women to become dysgenic and socialistic when they are allowed to vote and occupy leadership positions in government, or other society molding roles (most churches recognize male-female mental differences). 8. NEUTRAL ON GOD The AMERICAN EUGENICS PARTY does not oppose any religion which upholds Eugenic Principles. As an organization, we do not take a position on the existence of God. 9. EDUCATION PROVISIONS Each will be guaranteed the opportunity to attain a basic education. Those with similar abilities will be grouped together for efficient learning and teaching as well as to provide compatible social contacts. The neighborhood school policy will be enforced. The curriculum will stress creativity to exercise the solving ability, and teaching methods which emphasize time-wasting, etc. answer withholding techniques will be discarded (no amount of environmental "brain stretching" can alter hereditary mental ability). 10. POSITIVE PUBLIC COMMUNICATION MEDIA Dysgenic acts and ideas will not be conveyed over the public communication media. Such expression is negative to young and impressionable minds and prevents a pleasant atmosphere for the capable. Suggestions to improve the communication media will be encouraged and handled through responsible authorities. 11. WHITE DEFECTIVES The caucasians are the controlling race in the world but the reason we do not have a Eugenic Society today is because of interfering, mentally deficient caucasians (White Defectives) in controlling positions (incorrect eugenic programs are a secondary cause). There are White Defectives who propose race mixing, while other White Defectives promote inter-caucasian strife - both prevent Eugenics but in different ways. White Defectives must be removed from controlling positions. 12. DYSGENIC RECREATION Violence-type sports such as boxing, bullfights, etc. are to be eliminated or suitably altered. These types of "recreations" help produce negative behavior in lesser mental types because they promote disregard for human and animal life. 13. ANTI-VICE Laws are to be enacted and enforced to prohibit gambling, alcoholism, smoking in public places, prostitution, sexual perversion, narcotics, obscene display in literature, movies, etc. and other vices. Happiness, health, and progress are endangered by these dysgenic acts. 14. ANTI-POLLUTION Pollution of water, air, and food is now such a serious problem that mental and physical well-being are affected. Strict laws must be enacted to stop pollution if hereditary potentials are to be fully realized (a deficient basic environment can retard or obstruct a hereditary potential). 15. EUGENIC MARRIAGES Eugenic marriages will be encouraged through a nationwide classification of all marriageable individuals. Those with similar qualities will be encouraged to meet and eventually marry. Today many do not marry because they are unable to find suitable partners. Those who marry unsuitable mates are not only unhappy in marriage (which often leads to divorce - an increasing tendency) but bring forth undesirable offspring. Unhappy marriages, divorces, and undesirable offspring can only be solved through a "mate-location system." Your evaluation or support (as a promoter and/or financial contributor) of the above Platform, (which is designed to unify those having common principles; prevent genetic threats; and evolve a Eugenic Society), is requested.
