Francis Galton is listed based upon the fact that a Nazi scientist 'used' his photographs -- which seems a highly tenuous connection. It should also be noted that Galton was an advocate of positive eugenics -- encouraging those considered desirable to marry & have children, not the negative eugenics of discouraging undesirables from breeding, that eventually led to sterilisations and (under the Nazis) genocide.

Why not list him (I am not saying this, because I do not by in the Holocaust hoax, just generally)? I mean, even Martin Luther is listed. In that case one should perhaps also list Plato, Veblen, Hegel, von Wieser and many others. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:24, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
The concept of this article is a good idea, and the information is certainly important. However it seems to me that the standards for including anyone are always going to be a problem. For instance reasonable claims could be made that without Saint Paul Christianity would have never divided from Judaism, without Muhammad Christianity would have never felt the need to become militant to defend itself, without Napoleon Europe would have had a much more peaceful transition to liberalism, and on and on. BTW I have often heard that Hitler cited Henry Ford as an influence, especially in his economic policies. Jaque Hammer (talk) 12:20, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
