    I'm doing an ethics module now, and one of the tasks is to compare science across 2 different cultures to see how it is affected.

    I was thinking of doing something like the topic of eugenics, in Germany in the 1930s, vs maybe the USA the modern world. I was wondering if this is a good comparison, or would another country in a different time period be better?

    I was thinking of comparing things like privacy/consent and dignity of victims/subjects, lack of scientific knowledge back then, overall intentions, things like that.
