ELMER PENDELL PDF

Giant intellects like Gibbon, Spengler and Toynbee have given us complex and tortuous reasons for the decline of civilizations. Pendell presents us with a simple one. Civilizations fall because the less capable slice of the population regularly outbreeds the more capable. In precivilized 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. 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.

Giant intellects like Gibbon, Spengler and Toynbee have given us complex and tortuous reasons for the decline of civilizations. Pendell presents us with a simple one. Civilizations fall because the less capable slice of the population regularly outbreeds the more capable. In precivilized 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.

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.

For a small book this is a heavy read, the first few chapters read like a psychology book, but once your by that you get treated to some unusual theories on civilisation and human behaviour. The author believes that humans evolve during harsh times because they can't afford to carry the weaker segments of the population and so only the strong survive and the weak perish. But when civilisation takes hold the weak and lazy slowly out breed the more productive and so civilisation creates its own downfall.

At times I was both amused and shocked by some of the snobbish statements the author makes, but he does drive through a brutal truth. Pendell book discusses the human evolution from its origins to the present. He focalise on the issue that humans evolution is improved by harsh conditions that where present during the Ice ages, since only the more intelligent elements would survive. As climate improved the less capable outbreed the more intelligent.

Also early Neanderthal man of the Neolithic during an ice age had a bigger brain than the Neanderthal man of the mild Mesolithic age. He comes to present day United States Welfare policies and shows the skyrocketing devolution happening in just a few decades of liberal policies. All together a must get. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
