I made some additional updates since your comment. Not sure if they address your point directly, but there’s a bit more to chew on. I actually had the thought (as I’m sure a lot of people have), of simply taking one major factor in Trump’s pending electoral college victory and following it back as far as possible. The “thread” (not sure if there’s a better word) would be simplier if not clearer to follow.
As for eugenics, I sure hope no scientist finds any legitimacy there, but given the power soon to be wielded by anti-scientist appointees at the EPA, NASA, etc., I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss a “fake science” thread. I’ll think more on it.
Thank you for your comments. I appreciate the insights.
