32. Great post. The same racism was here, and inspired Hitler.
Racism in terms of eugenics was not always ethnic. Most of the people sterilized in the United States before and after Hitler came to power were White women. Many in the U.S. thought things were going swimmingly for Hitler and they envied him. In the U.S., the pesky Bill of Rights too often got in the way. But Hitler condemned Gypsies, gays, the disabled, liberals, criminals and anyone else who didn't or couldn't conform to the party line.

Indeed, if not for Hitler, we would have had concentration camps long ago. But for some reason, Hitler delayed that. Oh, because it was so heinous and atrocious.

If only he had gone slower like we were doing, and are doing now.

Thanks for the excellent post. Rec.
