On this episode of ID The Future, Discovery Institute Senior Fellow David Klinghoffer discusses the recent move by National Review editor Rich Lowry to sever ties with two regular contributors, John Derbyshire and Robert Weissberg, after discovering their connections to racialist groups promoting race superiority, eugenics, and other decidedly un-American ideas. Klinghoffer illustrates how Darwinian evolution informs proponents of these ideas, and how important it is to identify and root out this kind of thinking before it has a chance to pollute respectable institutions and publications.
