The satanic nightmare of the population control movement April 16, 2012

I’ve written on this blog many times about the dark nature of the population control movement, of its glaring errors and constantly failed predictions (like the dean of population control advocates, Paul Erlich, claiming in 1969 that there would be food riots and mass starvation in the US and other developed counties by the 1980s if massive population control measures were not put in place, including forced sterilization and government-mandated birth limitations, like China’s horrific one-child policy). 

But even in my most strident criticisms, I’ve been naught but a piker.  I haven’t really touched on the evil, misanthropic (people-hating) nature of this twisted ideology.  Robert Zubrin, a man who needs no introduction to space exploration enthusiasts and one of the most brilliant and creative minds of our times, has written an article at New Atlantis that, I believe, really captures the true nature of the population control movement.  It is somewhat long, but if you read any article on teh entrawebs today or this week, please read this one.  The article makes plain how the world has suddenly come to see plummeting birth rates in virtually every country, to the extent that many countries are facing such a low rate of births that their demise seems assured (Japan, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Russia, etc).  The consequences of this population collapse will be so severe as to be incalculable, but the collapse of Rome is likely a good indicator.  The article also explains how US and other government money, allied with extreme population control advocates in many private organizations (Rockefeller Foundation, World Bank, and of course Planned Barrenhood), has been far more effective in forcing human sterilization and profligate contraceptive use around the world, including in many nominally Catholic countries whose birth rates have also collapsed (Mexico and Peru being two of the most striking examples), than has been the Church in upholding the constant belief that children are a blessing from God to be accepted freely and generously.  I’ll post a couple of excerpts, but you must read the entire article:

Until the mid-1960s, American population control programs, both at home and abroad, were largely funded and implemented by private organizations such as the Population Council and Planned Parenthoodgroups with deep roots in the eugenics movement. While disposing of millions of dollars provided to them by the Rockefeller, Ford, and Milbank Foundations, among others, the resources available to support their work were meager in comparison with their vast ambitions. This situation changed radically in the mid-1960s, when the U.S. Congress, responding to the agitation of overpopulation  ideologues, finally appropriated federal funds to underwrite first domestic and then foreign population control programs. Suddenly, instead of mere millions, there were hundreds of millions and eventually billions of dollars available to fund global campaigns of mass abortion and forced sterilization. The result would be human catastrophe on a worldwide scale………………

………..President Johnson bought the claptrap, including the phony math. Two months later, he declared to the United Nations that “five dollars invested in population control is worth a hundred dollars invested in economic growth.” With the Johnson administration now backing population control, Congress passed the Foreign Assistance Act in 1966, including a provision earmarking funds from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for population control programs to be implemented abroad. The legislation further directed that all U.S. economic aid to foreign nations be made contingent upon their governments’ willingness to cooperate with State Department desires for the establishment of such initiatives within their own borders. In other words, for those Third World rulers willing to help sterilize their poorer subjects, there would be carrots. For the uncooperative types, there would be the stick. Given the nature of most Third World governments, such elegant simplicity of approach practically guaranteed success. The population control establishment was delighted………….[and thus, even in many countries with a strongly Catholic population and who still adhered to the belief of the Church, government encouragement and even force was used to transform faithful Catholics from people with large families who would never even consider contraception or sterilization, into constant users of these powerful drugs and irreversible surgeries, who had very small families.  As I blogged last week, the influx of immigrants from Mexico is going to dry up because their birth rate has collapsed to US-levels)

………But Nixon’s chief interest in population control was its supposed value as a Cold War weapon. The president charged Henry Kissinger, his National Security Advisor and Secretary of State, with conducting a secret study on the role of population control measures in the fight against global communism. Kissinger pulled together a group of experts drawn from the National Security Council (NSC), the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, the Department of State, USAID, and other agencies to study the question. The result was issued on December 10, 1974 in the form of the classified NSC document titled “Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The document — known as National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200), or simply as the Kissinger Report — represented the encoding of Malthusian dogma as the strategic doctrine of the United States……..

…………Around the world, the population control movement has resulted in billions of lost or ruined lives. We cannot stop at merely rebutting the pseudoscience and recounting the crimes of the population controllers. We must also expose and confront the underlying antihumanist ideology. If the idea is accepted that the world’s resources are fixed with only so much to go around, then each new life is unwelcome, each unregulated act or thought is a menace, every person is fundamentally the enemy of every other person, and each race or nation is the enemy of every other race or nation. The ultimate outcome of such a worldview can only be enforced stagnation, tyranny, war, and genocide. The horrific crimes advocated or perpetrated by antihumanism’s devotees over the past two centuries prove this conclusively. Only in a world of unlimited resources can all men be brothers…….

Sadly, our self-anointed elites have drunk deeply at the trough of population control.  Since its inception in Victorian England, the driving force of the population control movement has always been centered in the elites – the wealthy, academics, titans of industry, etc.  And so they have influence far out of proportion to their numbers.  Through their domincance of the media, the population control advocates have been able to put out an almost unchallenged message that contraception is an unalloyed good, that sterlization is a good, that abortion is perhaps not good but a very necessary evil, etc.  And a huge percentage of the population – the vast majority, in this country – have swallowed this rhetoric, hook, line, and sinker.

These are the very same people who tell us today that human activity is destroying the environment via global warming cooling “climate change.”  It’s totally bogus, of course, but it suits their primary aims, which are ever-increasing control and a general antipathy towards their fellow man – misanthropy.  As Zubrin notes, it’s the same mentality that has powered all the destructive, satanic “utopian” ideologies that have caused such misery over the past two centuries: nazism, communism, socialism, etc.  It is a fundamentally anti-human and anti-God world-view – it is the worship of moloch, disguised under concerns for “the environment” or whatever other utopian goal. 

Sadly, the Church did not counter the flood of US and Western money and the constant harping of the media on this subject of the gravest import very well at all.  In that evil period, when the population control movement suddenly came into ascendency and spread misery around the world with its racist, eugenicist aims, the Church was both unprepared and unwilling to fight back effectively.  The widespread rejection of Humanae Vitae is testament to all this.  Had the Church fought this issue more effectively, we would see a very different world today.  But, for whatever reasons, that defense of life was not present, and now we all must watch as countries like Japan, Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, Poland, and many others – many supposedly or formerly Catholic bastions – experience economic collapse and commit slow suicide by failure to reproduce. 

And we ain’t in any great shakes in this country.  If large-scale immigration dries up, this country will also experience slow population decline, for our birth rate is slightly below replacement.

I haven’t had the guts to read the entire article, but I reposted it. I can’t stop crying after seeing that poor child in the chair.

Yeah, that part was horrible. Such are our elitist “betters.”

Oh yes, they are real pace-setters. We are falling in lock-step with them. God help humanity!
