Population control has been around at least since Thomas Malthus, (1766- 1823) who decided that at some point human populations would outstrip resources and WE WOULD ALL DIE HORRIBLE DEATHS!
From that, population control came into favor amongst many level high intellectuals and national elites, who felt it their natural duty to save the human race from its scourge or at least their own line.
But if populations were to be thinned it stood to reason that one wanted to filter out only those, who low on the genetic hierarchy of life, really shouldn’t have the right to reproduce themselves.
This gave way to the ideas of eugenics where the government, or some group of uber humans would determine who should live and who should die. Perhaps counter-inventively, eugenics was first popularized by “humanists” with an anti clerical bent in the early part of the 20th century.
The Socialist Fabian Society of Britain was a repository of such thinking. In it, now revered names like George Bernard Shaw, HG Wells and Bertrand Russell thought long and hard about how the human race should be perfected, as obviously only great intellectuals might know how to do.
Shaw said; “The only fundamental and possible socialism is the socialization of the selective breeding of man.”
While; “”Russell proposed that the state should issue colour-coded “procreation tickets” to prevent the gene pool of the elite being diluted by inferior human beings.”‘
And Wells not to be outdone; “”praised eugenics as the first step towards the elimination of “”detrimental types and characteristics” and the “fostering of desirable types” instead.”‘
Also counter- intuitively the main opposition to the ideas of Eugenics and population control, came from the Roman Catholic Church. Yes the very same institution that condemned people to a horrible death who dared to say that the sun did not revolve around the earth, (although that is still believed by a fourth of the American population).
And yes the very same Church of Rome that kept its believers in a constant state of mortal terror, that particularly due to their wayward genitalia they were very likely going to go to a horrible hell for eternity, only to now admit that such a hell really never existed and that they were just kidding.
A Catholic priest Robert Hugh Benson in 1903, leaned hard against Eugenics and a world controlled by elites, along with tidy “humanistic” intellectuals when he wrote a dystopian novel “Lord of the World” about a global dictatorship in which eugenics is a central theme.
Bad boy Hitler however, who not only believed in eugenics and population control, but was a famous practitioner of both, made Eugenics a topic no longer spoken of openly in polite company,
But with over 7 billion people on the planet and still growing, the ideas of Malthus, (within closed doors and with deniability) the topic of eugenics is sneaking back into fashion. But the Catholic Church, just as one hundred years ago is standing up against what has become a quiet onslaught of global “humanists” who want to “save” especially poor people and people of color from their own vice of fertility.
The horrors of Malthusian economics are now fashionable again. It was the theme of Don Brown, (The Da Vinci Code) book “The Inferno“. And it is Paul and Anne Ehrlich, who reaffirm it again with their latest paper on the subject, (published by the Royal Society) titled ; ‘Can a Collapse of Global Civilization Be Avoided? ’ The Ehrlichs are embraced by none other than Prince Charles.
The idea that Africans are particularly egregious sinners in the world of human fertility is written about as a Geo Political problem by Stratfor, which is famous for producing “Global Intelligence”.
Strtfor however says that it is not all of Africa, (which has a relatively low population density when compared to Europe and Asia) but only special parts like Nigeria and Kenya, where Stratfor writes, “The highest increase in new births in the world between now and 2050 is expected to occur in Nigeria. By 2050, Nigeria’s population is projected by the United Nations to be 389 million, rivaling that of the United States at 403 million”
Stratfor goes on to say; “The phenomenon of rapid population growth in Africa is probably at its most acute in East Africa. This region has one of the highest population growth-rates in the world. It is projected, for example, that Kenya’s population will increase from the current 43 million to over 100 million by 2050.”
Up until now there has been lots of speculation by what the mainstream media would call “conspiracy theorists” that the UN, (and private companies associated with the UN) as well as US AID have been busy spiking vaccines sent to women in many parts of the impoverished world with chemicals aimed at sterilizing them.
Here is a March 11, 2004 report originating not surprisingly from the Catholic Church on the spiking of Polio vaccines aimed at sterilizing Nigerian women. That study however, was not done with enough depth.
But last week the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops claimed that vials of a tetanus vaccine being used in a program administered by the World Health Organization and UNICEF contain a chemical hormone that causes miscarriages and other infertility issues. And this time the Church did its homework. They asked to do the testing of the tetanus vaccines, (provided by the World Health Organization, or a company it outsources to) in cooperation with the Kenyan government which is heavily dependent on monies from the West. Nairobi refused.
So the Church hired its own labs and doctors and did the testing itself. Neither the government in Nairobi nor the World Health Organization would comment on the results. These tetanus vaccinations are not so strangely targeted at women between 15 and 49 years of age. The major media have ignored this story pretty much everywhere.
Here is why. At the highest levels people are saying that overpopulation is a special problem in Africa and Asia. Here is a short video of Obama’s newly appointed Ebola Czar Ron Klain who says openly in front of a smug white woman; “The top leadership issue in the world today is how to deal with the continuing growing population…… and all of the resource demands it places on the world. And burgeoning populations in Africa and Asia that lack the resources to have a happy life”.
This insidious and lying propaganda is then disseminated at a popular level on “Yahoo Answers”, where the “question” is posed “Is Mass Sterilization the Answer?”, to which the “authority” John H responds; “There is no solution to the starving people in Africa. This may seem a bold statement but tragically it is true. Band Aid – World Aid – Action on Famine – whilst all very good movements, are taking on a problem that is multiplying by the hour…… . African women have no concept of birth control – African men are of the opinion that a large family will bring wealth – and the resulting population explosion gathers momentum with the resulting famine and death……… Educating these masses seems an impossible task………. The answer may be mass sterilization of women after the first child……….. Harsh ? Yes – very harsh……..There seems to be no other answer.”
Adding to that, the “Best Answer” as stated by Yahoo was given by someone called “Abydos” (an African name?) who said about sterilization “It would be a great answer. I grew up poor. I knew making a baby would keep me poor. So I had a vasectomy when I was 21.”
The idea that Africa lacks natural resources is even dumber than believing that the world is flat. It is Africa’s natural resources that China and the US are competing for today and were the main reason for more than 200 years of European imperialism. Even if one accepted the extremely irrational premise, (which as a real matter is based on racism) that Africa cannot develop enough fertile land to feed itself, there are many places in the world where that is the case like say Puerto Rico. or Monaco, or Singapore or arguably Japan.
But no one suggests that the women of these places should be sterilized so as to bring populations down to match resources.
That is what international trade is supposed to be all about.
If Africa is to be able to feed itself, the solution is not to sterilize its girls and women, but for Washington, the UN and Europe who are soooo “concerned” for the well being of the people of the continent, to get the hell out and let the African people take control of their own resources and their own lives.
Without another 100 years of colonialism Africans will sort out their own problems.
