Socialists and Progressives were pioneers in eugenics. U.Wisconsin Madison had a progressive institute that promoted eugenics. The Nazis claimed they got ideas from them. There’s a fair amount of scholarship on all this. The left dropped eugenics as an embarrassment when the Nazi death camps became public knowledge, but I don’t think they ever really got it out of their heads. The overpopulation hysteria from Paul Ehrlich, Garrett Hardin, et al. is just an updated version.
