WHY CIVILIZATIONS SELF-DESTRUCT

Dr. Elmer Pendell

Giant intellects like Gibbon, Spengler and Toynbee have given us complex and tortuous reasons for the decline of civilizations. Dr. Pendell presents us with a simple one. Civilizations fall because the less capable slice of the population regularly outbreeds the more capable. In pre-civilized times nature weeds out the unfit and eventually produces a superior variety of men whose intelligence and industriousness are channeled into constructing an advanced social order that defeats nature's best-laid plans by protecting instead of eliminating the unfit. The out-come is that in several generations the protected outnumber the protectors.

Dr. Pendell scours the annals of history to prove his point, after beginning his seminal study with a remarkable analysis of the inborn, polarized egotistic and altruistic drives which are the biological basis for both the building and unbuilding of civilizations.

Most importantly, Dr. Pendell offers us ways and means to stop the historic and hitherto unstoppable processes of social entropy. One of his most intriguing-and most controversial-remedies is a genetically oriented marriage law to raise the birthrate of our better human specimens and substantially lower the proliferation rate of the civilization-destroying people who can neither provide for themselves nor their offspring.

ELMER PENDELL
Giant
intellects like
Gibbon,
Spengler
and
Toynbee
havegi\'en us
complex
and tortuous
reasons for
thedecline
of
civilizations. Dr. Pendell presents us
with
a
simple
one. Civilizationsfall because
the
less
capable
slice of
the
population
regularlyoutbreeds the
more capable.
In
precivilized times
nature
weeds
out
the
unfitandeventually
produces a
superior
variety
of

",hose intelligence
and
industriousness are
channeled into
con
structing
an
advanced social
order
that
defeats
nature's
best-laidplans by
protecting
instead of
eliminating
the
unfit.
The
out
come
is
that
in several
generations the
protected
outnumber
the
protectors.Dr.
Pendell
scours
the
annals of history to
prove
his
point,
after
beginning
his seminal study with a
remarkable
analysis
ofthe
inborn,
polarized egotistic
and
altruistic
drives
which arethe
biological basis for
both the
building
and unbuilding
of
civilizations.Most illlportantly, Dr.
Pendell
offers us ways
and
means
tostop
the
historic
and hitherto
unstoppable
processes
of
social entropy.
One
of
his most
intriguing-and
most
controversial
remedies
is
a genetically
oriented
marriage law
to raise
the
birthrate
of
ollr
better human
specimens
and
substantially
lower
the
proliferation
rate
of
the
civilization-destroying
peoplewho
can
neither
provide
for themselves
nor
their
offspring.
