"Malthusian" Population control:
Near the end of his long life, Lord Bertrand Russell won
acclaim among antiwar activists
for his outspoken opposition
to American involvement in Vietnam.
But what they didn't know was that he just thought war was
a horribly messy and inefficient way to kill people.
Not to mention the property destruction and expensive
Throughout his career, Lord Russell spoke of the aristocratic
aspiration toward a more refined form of genocide.
In The Impact of Science on Society, he made it clear
what they had in mind:
"I do not pretend that birth control is the only way
in which population can be kept from increasing.
There are others, which, one must suppose,
opponents of birth control would prefer.
War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been
disappointing in this respect,
but perhaps bacteriological war may prove effective.
If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world
once in every generation,
survivors could procreate freely
without making the world too full.
There would be nothing in this to offend the conscience of
or to restrain the ambition of nationalists.
This state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant,
but what of it. Really high-minded people are indifferent
to suffering, especially that of others."
But of course. How else to run an empire? In 1953, when
Lord Russell's book was published, there was
very little public knowledge of bacteriological warfare.
Yet he spoke of it knowingly and lovingly,
and he clearly indicated that poor nations would be targeted.
That virulent strain of thought continues — and reaches to the top.
In 1962, the CIBA foundation held a symposium,
"Man and His Future,"
at which the keynote speaker was Francis Crick .
His favored tactics of population control included putting
a chemical that would cause sterility in the water supplies
of those nations he judged as "not fit to have children."
Other nations deemed fit would be given a license to
purchase an antidote.
"This approach may run against Christian ethics,"
he said in a nice touch of understatement,
"but I do not see why people should have a right
to have children." ..
"We might be able to achieve remarkable results after twenty or
by limiting reproduction to genetically superior couples."
He talked about the benefits that could come to a country that
"improved its population on a grand scale."
What type of people was Frick talking about?
A study of his work leaves no doubt that "limiting reproduction
to genetically superior couples," as he wished to do,
would exclude Negroes, Jews, Gypsies and the Asian races.
The year was not 1939 but 1962,
and the country was not Nazi Germany, but the United States
These were not the musings of a deranged madman, but the
philosophical essence of one of the foremost microbiologists
in the world.
Francis Crick was a winner of the Nobel Prize.
( Dr. Gary L Glum )
"Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine,
from a very early age,
to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that
the authorities consider desirable,
and any serious criticism of the powers that be
will become psychologically impossible.
Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy,
because the government will tell them that they are so."
( Bertrand Russell - 'The Impact Of Science On Society' )
