Description:

This paper states that cloning appeared to be the closest realization and rationalization of Hitler's delusion of a master race. The author points out that cloning seems to be quite tempting to a dictator-parent who wants her offspring to replicate her exclusively or to a narcissistic father who wants to see himself in an exact-duplicate offspring that repeats him like a mirror. The paper stresses that, even when the public is sufficiently educated on the genetic cloning of human beings to handle the darkest suspicions and fears, questions arise as to the social and moral interests and rights of human clones, the moral consequences of human cloning itself, and the probability that people would become more motivated to reproduce children by cloning than in the way nature intends, which is sexually and at random.

From the Paper:

"Hitler thought that people could cooperate with nature's law by not mating with those of either higher or lower biological orders, but by letting the higher order "triumph". He wrote: "The stronger must dominate and not mate with the weaker, which would signify the sacrifice of its own higher nature. Only the born weakling can look upon this principle as cruel, and if he does so, it is merely because he is of a feebler nature and narrower mind (Hitler)". He stood firmly on what he considered a most perceivable and empirical progression in nature and that, if this were not the position taken, the higher development of organic life would not be conceivable or possible at all."
