Keynes was director of the British Eugenics Society from 1937 to 1944. 
He described eugenics as “the most important, significant and… genuine 
branch of sociology that exists”. He believed overpopulation was causing 
“mighty problems” for humankind and he saw eugenics as one possible way 
of resolving these alleged problems.

While the romantic numskulls of Nazi Germany are dreaming of restoring 
the old race of Europe’s Dark Forest to its original purity, or rather 
its original filth, you Americans, after taking a firm grip on your 
economic machinery and your culture, will apply genuine scientific 
methods to the problem of eugenics. Within a century, out of your 
melting pot of races there will come a new breed of men – the first 
worthy of the name of Man.
