Commentary: Righting the wrong of eugenics

I thought I was unshockable. I thought I had heard, seen or studied most all of it: man’s inhumanity to man. Some of it resides on the periphery, stuff that occurred before I was born such as the atrocities of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. History is rife with those instances and more, but there are also modern examples: The Bosnian war in 1992 between ethnic Serbs, Muslims and Croats, or the 1994 Rwandan genocide where Hutus killed an estimated 500,000 to 1 million Tutsis. The ongoing strife in -- you name the Middle Eastern country -- between Sunni, Shia, Israeli and Palestinian.
