The Depopulation Agenda


Depopulation -- From Imperial Conquest to Eugenics

Since the time of Malthus (1798), the argument for ‘population control’ has always been made in terms of “sustainability,” ie an alleged need to control population growth in order to limit demand for a finite food supply for example (Malthus believed 900 million was unsustainable).

Today, world population is around seven billion people. Population annual growth rate has halved to only one percent in the past 50 years. Global population is projected to stabilize at 10b in 2100 (with growth continuing to fall), according to the UN (Gerhard Heilig). Yet the ‘globalist elite’ continue to target ‘population control’ goals, an item still high on the political agendas of the self-appointed, world government planners like the Rockefeller Foundation, WHO, World Bank, IMF, UN Population Fund, USAID and others. With the difference that former calls for the stabilization of population growth rates have given way today to an openly hawkish agenda of population reduction (death rates to exceed birth rates). The calls for depopulation are made in the name of humanitarianism (‘destroying to save’) or ‘sustainability’ (--the Malthusian finite cake fallacy. See sidebar, ‘Sustainable development’ below), under cover of perfectly legitimate family planning. But the methods, the targets, and the history of the institutions involved betray the existence of a hidden agenda, even as the empire’s genocidal wars rage on :

Judith Rodin, Rockefeller Foundation (RF): ‘concerned by predictions that the global population will rise above 9bn by 2050,’ FT (April 28, 2013):
“Nine billion is unsustainable. I’m not an optimist,” she says, “but it gives people like us a real chance to intervene.”

[Since 1972] “the WHO Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation has been supporting basic and clinical research on the development of birth control vaccines...” (sic)

(WHO Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation, 1990)

Ted Turner (founder CNN): “world population should be around two billion.”

Turner’s UN Foundation: “217 million African children have been vaccinated against measles ... since 1999.”

“If I were reincarnated, I should like to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.”

--UK Prince Philip, WWF

The Politics of Depopulation

The force of human regeneration is a progressive force, like Spring--
a natural creative force for change, new life, growth and renewal. All over the world, the New Year was traditionally celebrated at springtime, in sync with Nature’s annual revolution and triumph of the new over the old, that keeps things from getting poisonously stagnant. It was the imperial West that moved the date to the frozen solid first of January we observe today, in typically reactionary fashion.

If all empires are built on blood, some are bloodier than others. In this twilight of the age of empire, killing has been more than ever the paramount feature of politics that try to hold back the clock hands--the gruesome and damnable mechanics of empire and its perpetuation--grinding on through ‘military expansion’; ‘transformation (by destruction) of non-capitalist societies’ (preparing the ground for capitalism); and ‘counter-revolution or bloodletting’ [--H. Magdoff, Imperialism 1978]. Just another ‘necessary’ industrial process among others...

Military Expansion and the Spoils of Genocide

Genocide is depopulation in the extreme. The NATO invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan have been part of the empire’s swan song, world conquest push into Eurasia. At the same time, these so-called ‘wars’ 1 are also a salient, bloody and extreme example of depopulation for resource access, as local resistance to imperial expansion and theft is eliminated by mass murder, covered up as much as possible by inciting factional civil strife.

The resource rich countries (oil, opium) have been massively depopulated militarily after illegal invasion and long, violent, ongoing 2 occupations, leaving in each country millions dead, millions more emigrated as refugees, and the remaining population facing the prospect of a future blighted by birth defects and disease from effectively permanent DU radiation.

Destroying ‘to Save’

As elsewhere, propaganda portrayed the slaughter as humanitarian. In Iraq, the homicidal campaign was called “bringing democracy”; in Afghanistan, the story line changed from an “anti-terrorism” operation to bringing “women’s rights” (despite 26% infant mortality rate in 2007, highest in the world: it’s understood that infanticide is contrary to mothers’ rights, though another means of depopulation).

Transformation of Non-capitalist Economies--Land Enclosure by Ethnic Cleansing

US Gov’s Chem Warfare on Colombian Subsistence Farmers

(compiled in part from the Web)

Economically independent populations like subsistence farmers, not integrated into structures for capitalist exploitation, become targets for destruction, if unadaptable. In Colombia, the so-called civil war has been largely a matter of native resistance to this foreign-sponsored process of industrial transformation. Massive internal displacement and ‘depopulation’ is the result of longstanding attempts at land ‘enclosure’ for exploitation by commercial agriculture and mineral extraction. Here we will go into some detail because this case has special relevance to the main thesis of these articles--that Monsanto herbicide has been used as a chemical warfare depopulation agent in multiple wars of multiple epochs. It follows that its current use with paired, GM-food carriers may be for the same purpose, as the evidence suggests (see article ‘What Is Class War?’).

US-funded crop dusting under helicopter gunship escort has been fumigating ‘the lungs of the world’ -- the biodiverse Amazon Basin -- with Monsanto’s Roundup Ultra ® herbicide since 2000. Areas targeted with chemical spraying have included the lands of subsistence farmers, indigenous habitats, and the source of three major rivers, favoring widespread drift of herbicide contamination affecting drinking water and wildlife. Food crops and livestock have been destroyed by the spraying over vast areas [5,000 sq miles] of fertile lands, and tens of thousands of indigenous farmers and their families have been displaced and poisoned. [An Ecuadorean study (Paz y Mino, 2007) observed human genetic damage (which may result in cancer, infertility or birth defects) from the Colombian Roundup ® formulation, drifted into inhabited areas in Ecuador along the border with Colombia.]

Imperial attacks on Food Independence

Food crops reportedly have been heavily targeted in the southern provinces of Boyaca and Narino. In the latter, one in five children suffers from chronic malnutrition, the highest rate nationwide (Xinhua). Under the US$ 7b, Bush-era Plan Colombia chemical warfare, the crop dusters have been accompanied on the ground by land expropriations from subsistence farmers as well as political massacres committed by US-trained (SOA Watch) and funded right-wing paramilitary death squads, or US mil contractors (corpwatch); a repeat of history from other Latin American countries in the USA’s bloody ‘backyard.’

Transformation--from South Vietnam to Colombia

As a result of the upheaval and violence, 27 indigenous groups are said to be at risk of extinction (Colombian Constitutional Court/UN). Afro-Colombians and peasant farmers have also been disproportionately affected (displaced) 3 in a country with the highest number of internal refugees worldwide (IDMC). As South America turns towards a future of self-determination, with Venezuela leading the way -- after a long history of US-sponsored dictatorship and Right-wing terrorism on the continent -- Colombia has become an important US military redoubt. Plan Colombia is a US military operation (by proxy) in the style of the food crop destruction in Vietnam with ‘Agent Orange’ herbicide, supplied by the very same US company, Monsanto, whose Roundup ® herbicide has been sprayed over Colombia for more than a decade. The people of Vietnam (and veterans) are still suffering the effects today of the chem warfare mass poisoning over 40 years ago, which at the time caused famine and over half-a-million birth defects, linked to dioxin poisoning.

Monsanto’s Roundup ® (glyphosate) -- used in Colombia -- is not the same as ‘Agent Orange,’ which was a mix of acetic acids: BASF U46 (2-4-D)--IG Farben’s first herbicide, and a dioxin-containing herbicide (2,4,5-T), both organochlorines (OCs). Glyphosate is an organophosphate (OP) herbicide; it is used in Colombia at illegal (in US) concentrations; its additives are highly toxic and may contain dioxane, a carcinogen. Glyphosate itself may also be a carcinogen (see Table 1).

Still Killing Indians, with the New ‘Agent Orange’

As the US moved to fill the power vacuum in Vietnam left by the European imperial powers (France) it had overtaken, it targeted S. Vietnamese peasant farmer co-ops (with carpet bombing) because independent and a ‘base of support’ for the Viet Cong resistance. Similarly in Colombia, peasants and indigenous peoples are targeted because independent and a ‘base of support’ for the FARC resistance, itself acting in self-defense against the industrial bulldozer. At the same time it destroys independent subsistence, the ethnic cleansing in Colombia frees up valuable land and other natural resources for exploitation by capital. The oil-rich, FARC-held southern province of Putumayo has been heavily targeted with aerial fumigation.

Besides Vietnam, another historical precedent of Plan Colombia would be the land grab genocide of the Amerindian within the United States: A classic case where expansion, resource seizure, ‘transformation’ and eugenic killing ‘synergistically’ converge. Rationalizations appeal to racism and the so-called ‘law of the jungle’ (a misnomer, insulting to animals, who do not launch remote drone strikes on wedding parties). The appeal to the ‘justice of force’ is a fascist pretense that the highest form of social organization to which people can aspire would be the condition of animals in the jungle, rather than cooperation (--Engels), or at least, legality.

The campaign to exterminate indigenous and non-Caucasian populaces has never ended, but merely changed its methods. The National Indian Health Coalition estimates that since 1970, over one-third of native women living on reserves in the western United States have undergone some form of sterilization, either chemically, in vaccines, or through direct tubal ligation.” (Statement of Judge Royce White Calf, IHRAAM Tribunal, June 14, 1998. --cited in Hidden from History, K. Annett, 2010

    Depopulation by Fumigation?

The case of Peru raises the ominous question whether Plan Colombia’s chemical warfare will result in effects on fertility (depopulation) as well as expropriation of land through displacement.

The Peru of Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000), recipient of the greatest American aid largesse in S. America at the time, saw no aerial fumigation of coca or food crops. Instead, manual eradication of coca plants was carried out, with one strategic aim reportedly being to deprive opposition guerillas of income. Another difference in Peru was that under government depopulation programs, created under IMF pressure, nearly two percent of the entire female population, some 300,000 peasant and indigenous (Inca-descendant) women, were coercively sterilized (1995-2000), with the financial and other support of USAID and the UNFPA (Le Monde). The birth control programs disproportionately affected indigenous women.

The differences between the US interventions in Colombia and Peru, with unsprayed Peru requiring a birth control program and sprayed Colombia none, strongly suggest that the ‘eradication’ spraying in Colombia may be a chemical warfare attack not only on food crops but also on the health and/or fertility of the farming populations targeted. This expectation would be corroborated by the Paz y Mino and Carrasco studies (see Table 2), which linked the spraying of Roundup ® with ‘high rates of human miscarriage,’ cancer and birth defects in Ecuador (Paz y Mino) and Argentina (Carrasco).

‘Sustainable Development’ or Sustainable Dependency

Sustainable development is one of those slogans we are use to hearing in the paid opinion forum of the media (infomercials). The buzzword phrase ostensibly refers to economic development without the depletion of natural resources. It has also been used, as seen in the quotations cited at the start of this article, to argue for population control or reduction in ‘least developed countries.’ But this is specious.

Economic sustainability is a question of per capita consumption of resources, not absolute population numbers, as some would pretend. Rich countries are a much greater burden on resources than poor ones, who are low level consumers, by definition. It is the least developed countries (LDC’s) of the global South however who until recently have been the exclusive targets of anti-fertility programs, suggesting a different agenda altogether, which dare not speak its name.

Subsistence agriculture is highly sustainable but it does not sustain economic exploitation.

Real development would mean ending the cycle of ‘unequal exchange (trade) and debt’ (Magdoff), or dependency. [As with most newspeak, the real meaning of a term is found in its opposite: peace enforcement is war; ‘war on terror’ is ‘war of terror;’ ‘reproductive health’ is the disabling of reproduction, etc.] In short, ‘development’ is code for dependency, in the sense of neo-colonial dependency. ‘Sustainable development’ then may be thought of as the maintenance of forms of economic and political organization consistent with external control. Such is the purpose of the institutions of foreign aid and development, organs of colonization within the system of informal or financial imperialism (in place of foreign military governors we have corrupted local elites). Economically independent populations, like the South Vietnamese and Colombian farmers, become the object of attacks. Subsistence agriculture is highly sustainable but it does not sustain economic exploitation.

According to one of the elite’s own prophets, Paul Ehrlich, it is the way of life of the affluent societies that is unsustainable, not because of population growth, but because of their enormous and disproportionate consumption of resources (set to grow worse with the adoption of biofuels) and the environmental impact of their technologies: notably thru pollution (drinking water used for fracking, etc). Monsanto, the lead company in GMOs, falsely marketed as promoting sustainability through "higher yields," was for many decades one of the world's worst polluters, once near the top of the list of the Superfund Seven (Mother Jones), before offloading its industrial chemicals business due to the legal liabilities.

Depopulation for ‘Stability’--US National Security Study Memo

It is a commonplace to say that there is strength in numbers. Likewise it is a fact of political science that demographics drives politics. Increasing numbers in a particular population group is synonymous with increasing economic power and political clout, or at least a demand for same. Demographic instability creates political ‘instability,’ also through negative economic pressures arising from population growth. In free societies, freely changing populations would give rise to freely changing politics. But stable dictatorship/hegemony requires stable population (Bertrand Russell, Science and Society). Thus depopulation is a form of pacification.

The genocide blueprint US National Security Study Memo (NSSM 200) of 1974, an imperial, 4 strategic analysis of population trends in terms of their effects on ‘national security’ (economic interests),

is an example of demographics-based foreign policy for control. NSSM 200, aka the Kissinger Report, delineates the unwanted economic effects and potential political pressures arising from population growth in developing countries. Among the “special US political and strategic interests” cited in relation to a requirement for ‘population control’ are :

1) access to the target country’s resources, which population pressures may limit through a demand for sovereign nationalization of resources (or through domestic consumption of sovereign resources);

2) avoidance of the expropriation of foreign interests (investments) in developing countries owing to internal political pressure from population growth;

3) maintenance of favorable terms of trade with developing countries which might demand more equal exchange because of financial pressures from population growth. 


UN Targeting of the Developing World

Consider the UN Population Fund’s (UNFPA) current target countries in its drive towards its “Millenium Development [read: depopulation) Goals”: The majority of countries (9/15) targeted with depopulation measures are in Africa. Another is Haiti, with its population of African descent (still reeling from a UN-created cholera epidemic in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake). In Malawi, a “success” story, 20 percent of women using some method of contraception have been sterilized and half of these sterilized women are not yet married (UNFPA). Elsewhere, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Vietnam, India, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia have all seen cases of coerced sterilization under US {UNFPA/USAID/World Bank) programs. Population growth, we may infer, is “unsustainable” in poor, brown and black countries. In Brazil, “..according to some reports, under the (NSSM) program, as many as 90 percent of all Brazilian women of African descent had been sterilized...IPPF and FHI were involved.”(--F. Engdahl, Seeds of Destruction)

Of the 163 million women sterilized worldwide, 161 million are in developing countries.--WHO



Imperial Invasion of the Human Body

(see also ‘Resistance,’ No. 1)

UN Refugee Emergency ‘Evacuations’

The UNFPA (UN Fund for (de-)Population Activities), in collaboration with the UNHCR (High Commission on Refugees), WHO, USAID, the eugenics organizations Planned Parenthood, FHI (Family Health International), Population Council et al... distributes chemical and manual abortion kits as an emergency health priority in developing country refugee camps. According to the manual, the written consent of the vulnerable, displaced pregnant women is not required to carry out the procedure. Two of the abortion kits provided in refugee camps do not include hygienic sterilization equipment even though post-abortion infection may cause infertility. Under the makeshift conditions of a refugee camp, such a policy not only amounts to coercion, but also puts the lives of these vulnerable women at risk. Another kit includes tetanus vaccine, which was developed and has been used by the same sponsor (WHO--see below, WHO’s anti-fertility vaccine) to dissimulate an anti-fertility (hCG) ‘vaccine’ (see also note 6).

As it happens, this highly questionable UN abortion service takes place in many of the same countries named in the Kissinger Report as targets for birth control. It also occurs where refugees are created in the first place because of First World-sponsored wars on their home territories (Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Syria...), making these unfortunate would-be mothers double victims of imperial invasions.

UN’s Reverse Date Rape?

Current UNFPA programs described on the organization’s website cite the ‘reproductive health’ chemicals administered to pregnant women in poor countries in general--not just refugees. These are: Oxytocin (not OxyContin), a powerful hormone. Its stated use is for induced labor or as an anti-hemorrhage agent. It is colloquially known as ‘the trust drug.’ Next is Misoprostol, brand name Cytotec. Stated use is for induced labor or as an anti-hemorrhage agent. This synthetic hormone anti-ulcer drug may also be used to induce abortion. Its manufacturer Searle (a former Monsanto subsidiary) has warned against its off-label use on pregnant women, citing risk of uterine rupture or maternal or fetal death. Finally, magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) is administered for the stated use of preventing pre-term labor/convulsion. The injection of this salt solution in pregnant women triples the risk of infant mortality (D. Grimes, FHI) and is associated with neonatal respiratory depression. Other manufacturer’s warnings:

“This product may contain sulfuric acid... contains aluminum that may be toxic. Premature neonates are particularly at risk; Other effective drugs are available for [the] purpose [of anti-eclampsia]; Because studies cannot rule out the possibility of [fetal] harm, magnesium sulfate injection should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed...should be reserved for immediate control of life-threatening convulsions.”

Hormonal implants developed with funding from a eugenics organization (Rockefeller Population Council) and not distributed in the US (Norplant II) are also used. Norplant I was discontinued in the US (2002) after tens of thousands of lawsuits because of harsh side effects (including anemia). USAID continued implanting them abroad. Birth defects may result if an implant is used on a woman who is inadvertently pregnant at the time.

Combatting ‘Fertility Disease’

What the UN calls “reproductive health” then should be understood in the developing world as pregnancy and birth prevention, with contraception, implants, and in the last resort, a ‘trust’ drug, abortion pill, and shot of saline solution for good measure. “Despite the rhetoric of ‘reproductive health’ and women’s rights, the programs are misogynistic in the extreme, delivering technological control of poor women’s bodies [to] third parties with anti-women aims.”--Angela Franks, “Margaret Sanger...” You need a newspeak glossary to wade through the garbled and fraudulent UN justifications for Third World depopulation through imperial, bodily invasion. By ‘reproductive health,’ which means state of being able to reproduce, the UN means ‘having an empty or evacuated uterus.’ In this sense, pregnancy is a disease and a fetus a tumor--benign if white but malignant if dark.

The advent of GM foods, linked to miscarriage and birth defects, would usher in a widening of the net...

It turns out that the UN’s WHO-supported ‘reproductive health’ or anti-fertility activities in the developing world, later to include new WHO ‘vaccines’ against fertility (see below), reflected a policy strain that was to become more virulent, in line with new possibilities offered by the development of newer techniques. The advent of GM foods (see ‘What Is Class War’), linked to miscarriage and birth defects, would usher in a widening of the net, under WHO guidelines.

Abandonment of Voluntary Programs Acknowledged

Food as a Weapon I

Even in 1974, when depopulation as US foreign policy doctrine was being formulated, the ideal of voluntary methods was already being questioned:

“There is an alternate view which holds that a growing number of experts believe that the population situation is already more serious and less amenable to solution through voluntary measures than is generally accepted. It holds that... even stronger measures are required and some fundamental, very difficult moral issues need to be addressed. These include, for example ... mandatory programs, tight control of our food resources (coercive (conditional) withholding of food aid)...”--Memo 200

[This last point was elaborated on elsewhere in the same report...]

“There is also some established precedent for taking account of family planning performance in appraisal of assistance requirements by [US]AID [U.S. Agency for International Development] and consultative groups. Since population growth is a major determinant of increases in food demand, allocation of scarce PL 480 [1954 ‘Food for Peace’ USAID policy carrot--food for birth control] resources should take account of what steps a country is taking in population control as well as food production. In these sensitive relations, however, it is important in style as well as substance to avoid the appearance of coercion.”

“Mandatory programs may be needed and we should be considering these possibilities now,” (the document continues, adding: ) “Would food be considered an instrument of national power? (i.e. a weapon) ... Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can't/won't control their population growth?”

As the international leader in the drive to sterilize, the US government’s choice of apparatchik to head up its campaigns speaks volumes about the actual intentions hidden behind the rhetoric. USAID is the American government’s foreign depopulation arm. Its chief in the 1960s and 70s was an epidemiologist--a specialist in disease control, Reimert Ravenholt. Ravenholt’s website refers to population growth as the “humanosis pandemic.” The eugenicist view of human reproduction as a sort of pathogenic disease outbreak had wholly contaminated the “health/welfare” bureaucracy. [Note that the US public health agencies had been incorporated into the DoD (Department of Death) military bureaucracy by the mid-1950s.] It is the same misanthropy seen in the development of vaccines, which we associate with disease, against reproduction (see below). [US fertility stats come from the Centers for Disease Control.]

The former USAID head also declared the 1977 goal to see 25 percent of women in the developing world sterilized (note that total AIDS deaths in the developing world, of which 75 percent in Africa, number some 31 million; a further 33 million are living with the deadly virus--amfar). The 25 percent sterilization goal was not achieved (using voluntary methods) and in changing times, this malevolent dog came to be viewed as not sufficiently rabid. The bureaucracy’s mandate for voluntary ‘participation’ was being abandoned: “...his notion of a population problem ... whose solution was greater availability of voluntary family planning was being dismissed [my italics]. Yet Ravenholt was unswerving in the certainty of his approach. He had to go.” --Duff G. Gillespie, deputy assistant administrator for Population, Health and Nutrition in the Global Bureau of USAID

Policy recommendations from ‘Crisis of Democracy’ contemporaries corroborate the Ultra zeitgeist, suggesting a new consensus and foreshadowing future developments: In The Population Bomb, (1968) author Paul Ehrlich -- “One plan often mentioned involves the addition of ... sterilants to water supplies or staple food.”Again, this is no historical anomaly. US president Obama’s (sic) current science czar is from the milieu, having suggested “a program of compulsory sterilization” or adding a sterilization agent to food or water supplies --John Holdren, EcoScience, 1977.

The international body (WHO) that sets guidelines for states on GMOs has been actively involved in the R&D of a sterility agent which was administered covertly...

WHO’s Anti-Fertility ‘Vaccines’

In line with the abandonment of voluntary programs and the earlier 1974 NSSM call for “injectable contraceptives,” by 1986 USAID was declaring a "new approach to fertility regulation ... the development of vaccines directed against human substances required for reproduction" (Jeff Spieler). More Goldfinger (RF) funds were going toward developing a fertility ‘vaccine,’ which was implemented coercively as dissimulated tetanus vaccination, resulting in miscarriages. 6 The ‘vaccines’ were administered under WHO/UNPF auspices in Africa and Asia starting in the 1990s (see 1995 documentary entitled “The Human Laboratory.”) Thus the international body that sets guidelines for states on GMOs has been actively involved in the R&D of a sterility agent which was administered covertly in the developing world (Philippines, Thailand).

In 1990, the WHO Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation went on record on its participation ...  ‘since 1972, researching development of birth control vaccines directed against the gametes (anti-sperm, anti-ovum) or the preimplantation embryo.’ The nature of this research (with pregnancy as disease) foreshadows the development in 2001 of a means of invoking an immune response against sperm (see heading ‘Human Terminator Corn’ below).

Today the RF-funding of WHO research takes place as part of the GAVI Alliance (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization), a coalition of the Gates Foundation, the WHO, World Bank and the Rockefeller Foundation, with admitted population reduction goals.

Organization Sickness

“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care [sterilization], reproductive health services [abortion and contraceptives], we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”--Bill Gates, TED Conference, 2009

Some people just can’t tolerate the boredom of retirement? For Gates, population reduction is like data compression--the more the better? [Or is this an echo of the oft-cited, eugenicist  ’10-15 percent’ to be trimmed from the bottom?] The problem is that voluntary methods have been abandoned (as noted earlier) and that the current means used, such as inducing miscarriages with dissimulated anti-fertility ‘vaccine,’ or coercive abortion against the will of pregnant women is--or should be--criminal. But the targeting of fetuses may offer a legal safe haven:

The German pharmaceutical company Grunenthal, responsible for the 1961 Thalidomide disaster -- a regulatory watershed -- used the fetus defense in its 1968 manslaughter trial, arguing that it had a legal right to chemically cause birth defects and stillbirths with its sale of the toxic sedative drug. Trial ended with a settlement (--Braithwaite, p. 72).  In its marketing of the toxic product, advertised as ‘completely safe,’ Grunenthal “hired [private detectives] to [track] hostile physicians” (Op. cit. p. 69). Sound familiar?

Authoritarian and dictatorial systems become involved in a deadly conflict with the natural (free) process of life. -- Wilhelm Reich

Towards Contraceptive Food

Increasing public mistrust in the post-AIDS developing world of white foreigners brandishing syringes at poor, dark women led to new RF-funded research on edible vaccines, which were developed in GM potatoes by the end of the decade (1998). This avenue seems to have been abandoned because of issues with effective targeting and dosing as well as the advent of new possibilities in burgeoning genetically modified food biotech. In 2001-2004, the Bush II regime, which post-9/11 had proposed mass small pox inoculations, spent the hefty sum of $14.5 billion on new civilian biowarfare research including biotech (Engdahl).

“Resistance to genetically modified foods may affect the future of edible vaccines.”

-- Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology

Human Terminator Corn

In a development that builds on and combines the preceding immune infertility concept of the fertility vaccine with that of edible vaccines, a contraceptive corn, created with a grant from the USDA, was announced in 2001 by Epicyte Pharmaceuticals of San Diego. The spermicidal (sterile seeds) food causes irreversible infertility in both men and women by triggering an immune system response against sperm in the body (human sperm as pathogen).

“Farben's conduct at Auschwitz is best described by a remark of Himmler's: ‘What does it matter to us? Look away if it makes you sick.’" --Crime and Punishment of IG Farben, Joseph Borkin, 1978

The Seed Cartel -- Nefarious Links

Like the end users of its product, the Epicyte company reached a dead end, after it was bought in 2004 by a small biotech concern (Biolex), which went bankrupt not long after. Its human terminator biotechnology would not have been lost in the shuffle. Epicyte had a technology-sharing agreement (Engdahl) at the time with GM seed makers DuPont and Syngenta (in the same business area then?). DuPont has a partnership agreement with Monsanto. Together, these three companies control nearly half of the global seed market (47% in 2007: ETC Group). Monsanto is partnered with BASF who, with Bayer, also in GM crops, hold the distinction of Nuremberg convictions for crimes against humanity. All of the above companies (excepting the two recent start-ups Epicyte, Biolex) had cartel agreements or other links to the old IG Farben cartel. 8 These are the companies gaining control over the world’s food supply! ‘Terminator food’ holds the potential to end natural human reproduction, if not all human life on the planet if everyone ate it. The fact alone of unaccountable corporations wielding such power over life, like private companies with nukes, is reason enough to ban GMOs now.

Nothing Can Be Free

Though withdrawn from application for commercialization, a terminator gene had notoriously been developed for GM food plants, causing their seeds to be sterile and potentially threatening world food supplies.  If GM seeds of the Terminator variety are eventually rolled out, it would add a new twist to the possibility of using food as a coercive weapon, as suggested in the NSSM 200. Instead of making food an instrument of policy by withholding food aid, it becomes possible to prevent an entire nation or nations from growing food by withholding the only seeds that can grow in fields rendered ‘infertile’ with soakings of herbicide chemical.

This is the essence of capitalism, which like a pimp with his drugs, or a loan shark and his cash, has always been about exploiting human need (WS Burroughs) --  capturing (stealing) what people need--land, seeds, water, oil -- and then holding it for ransom.

This is the essence of capitalism, which like a pimp with his drugs, or a loan shark and his cash, has always been about exploiting human need (WS Burroughs) -- capturing (stealing) what people need--land, seeds, water, oil -- and then holding it for ransom.

In fact, this was the drive behind the original postwar ‘green revolution’ of the 1950s -- the petrochem cartel’s big push into food, or agribusiness. Under a feed the world banner (then as now), US agro- and chemical business penetrated international markets and destroyed small farming with a debt trap of hybrid seeds, expensive chemical fertilizer and pesticide, and loans in order to consolidate control and create the cartel of big agribusiness we know today. Big Chem was also synergistically offloading surplus war supplies of poison gas, as pesticide, and ammonium nitrate (explosives) as fertilizer (Engdahl).

Today more or less the same players are touting a ‘green revolution’ in poor Africa in order to implant into a new market dependency on paying-GM food crops, herbicide and fertilizer.

The original green revolution was followed by the gene revolution, which has further tightened cartel control over the food chain with patented, genetically modified food crops contaminating organics (and gaining market share), replacing free planting with a royalty payment scheme, and paired with locked-in herbicide sales. Much of the world now depends on, and is potentially subject to the control of an unfriendly agro monopoly. Control of the food supply bestows political control just as control of energy does. But there is more to the story of GM foods...(see article ‘What Is Class War?’)

Eugenic Depopulation

Past population control policy, during the ‘transition’ years of high fertility and population growth rates, was nominally concerned with stabilizing the rate of population growth-- a requirement, as we’ve seen, for stable dictatorship/hegemony. The ‘NSSM 200’ dealt with population control as a foreign policy element for the maintenance of power and resource access (in the ‘southern periphery’). For Kissinger, a longtime Rockefeller hand who was also Nixon’s handler, ‘sustainable development’ ominously meant that LDC populations must be limited both to maintain control (‘stability’) and to limit consumption of their valuable natural resources, ensuring continuing metropole access.

Ultimately, the agenda of depopulation for its own sake is a policy of separating the genetic ‘wheat from the chaff’ and discarding the ‘chaff.’

But the current insistence on ‘depopulation,’ even in the face of stabilizing population numbers according to the UN, belies the ‘sustainability’ pretext and suggests a new tack in the hidden agenda. The real agenda behind the new depopulation imperative can be deduced from observation of the particular populations targeted for reduction. Despite the dressing up in the language of sustainability or humanitarianism, this targeting is revealed as flowing from a policy of eugenics--which was the historical forerunner of the current birth/population control programs and in fact was sponsored by the same organizations and backers, now with new names. Ultimately, the agenda of depopulation for its own sake is a policy of separating the genetic ‘wheat from the chaff’ and discarding the ‘chaff.’

The population ‘problem’ then, as perceived by the eugenicist elite institutions, is a question not only of Quantity (population) but also of Quality, just as it was in the bad old days of discredited? eugenic policy in the 20th c. West.  Edwin Black’s study of the eugenics movement, War Against the Weak, describes it as a ‘war by the wealthy on the poor,’ based on a philosophy grounded in the former American practice of ‘breeding slaves and lynching (free) Blacks.’

Old Eugenicist quotes                                                                                                               

"We now know that men are not, and never will be, equal. We know that environment and education

can develop only what heredity brings." 

--Lothrop Stoddard, American Birth Control League (now IPPF), 1920

"We want fewer and better children ... and we cannot make the social life and the world-peace we are determined to make, with the ill-bred, ill-trained swarms of inferior citizens that you inflict upon us."

-- British novelist and eugenicist HG Wells, from the introduction to Margaret Sanger's Pivot of Civilization, 1922

Eugenics Victim Quote

‘You come out of the block. You see a fire coming out of the chimneys. You smell this terrible smell – that of flesh as it burns. And someone says, “This is not a factory. This is where they are burning your family.” And you say, “You are mad...”
--Auschwitz survivor Lily Ebert

EUGENICS HISTORY {Description, not endorsement}

The Nazis 'had the courage of the old time establishment's convictions' ― ’...sought to revive the 'Old Faith' (of imperialism) by concentrating on the fundamentals of imperial expansion, militarism, domestic repression, and (genocidal) racism.’ [But] they wanted 'in' (--Bertram Gross, Friendly Fascism)--[which is what brought war with the establishment. To simplify, the West had created a Bolshevik-killing monster that broke its leash].

Eugenic ideology has ancient roots. It stems from primitive, parochial, tribal chauvinisms and the old beliefs in divinely sanctioned rule by those with noble lineage, the royal families and aristocrats, who must be bred. The New World political formulation, influenced by Old World Protestant reform, reinvented governance such that wealth (property) took the place of blood line (genetics) as an indicator of divine sanction (Protestants took wealth as a sign of predestined membership among the elect or “the saved”-- Max Weber). Money then indicated ‘selection’ in the religious sense as well as in the Darwinian sense (meritocracy). By contrast, social ills (petty crime eg) may be blamed on poor ‘commoners,’ especially the lowest strata among them, who lack genetic (as well as monetary) capital, according to this dishonest but self-serving world view of the elite, ‘gilded criminals.’ Charity therefore was ‘unnatural’ in that it prolonged what Nature herself may have terminated, according to the Spartan neo-Malthusians. [Contrast the generosity of spirit in the Islamic ‘Zakat’ or alms-giving requirement, one of the five pillars of Islam.]

Society must prevent the weaklings at the bottom from mingling their weakness in human currents’
--George Bernard Shaw.

Genetic ‘hygiene’

War Against the Weak’s analysis of the 20th...century American eugenics movement frames it as a ...turning from the previous century's discovery of 'killing germs' for the health of the body to reducing the lowest social strata for the health of the body politic... “And fresh from victory in the Amerindian genocide...American elites set their sights on stopping the flood of immigrants (1910s-20s) and sterilizing or incarcerating the ‘unfit’ to cleanse ‘genetic infection’ (op. cit.). Many Western countries besides the US and Germany had sterilization laws during most of the twentieth century targeting ‘the unfit’ until around 1970. Some of the companies later involved in genocidal ethnic ‘cleansing’ were indeed the same ones in the business of killing germs.

Institutions for ‘race hygiene’ like the pre-Nazi Cold Spring Harbor Institute of  Eugenics Record Office (ERO, 1913) were created by the great American fortunes to focus on the “problem of the lower 10 percent” of the population, and aimed to ‘catalog the unfit,’ surveying schools, charities, public institutions, police departments’ criminal records and hillbilly families for sterilization candidates. [The centralization of private medical records (‘to prevent overdoses’--Bill Clinton) as well as the collection of genetic information in DNA databases (Mrs. Google’s ‘23&me’: “send us your DNA sample”) potentially serve the same purpose today.] They and related recipients of ‘philanthropic’ largesse, like Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League (now Planned Parenthood), spoke of ‘the Negro Problem’ in the same vein. The lower classes were likened to ‘weeds’ and ‘dangerous human pests’ to be eradicated [in the American Birth Control Review, 1924--Op Cit.].

Impatient with impolitic natural selection, racist American eugenicists dreamed of regimenting human reproduction along the lines of industrial production for genetic Quality Control. Sifting the lower strata for Mendelian traits flagging families as genetically defective had proven difficult. So the organization-mad eugenicists ‘used a shortcut: Bigotry.’ Race or ethnicity, immigrant status or poverty became indicators for blacklisting. Hearst newspaper headlines (1914) warned of eugenicist plans : “14 million to be sterilized” (15%) [-- Op Cit.].

“We must reserve the right to kill the n*ggers” [ie ‘natives’/non-whites]--Former British PM Lloyd George, (1934).

A heinous and racist dictum but repeated here because still practiced by imperial powers in their wars and genocides against non-white peoples; and an assumed right still obfuscated with the old Victorian excuse of bringing ‘civilization’ to savages; cf. US/NATO ‘bringing democracy’ [read Death] to Iraq; ‘women’s rights’ to Afghanistan, (‘until they’re ready’ to take over, etc.).

Marriage Restrictions for Gene Pool Quality Control

Other methods proposed to “purify the breeding stock” (Laughlin--ERO) were segregation --confinement of the unfit on reservations, like the Indians--and outlawing marriage for the ‘defective’ (compare US minority overrepresentation in prison populations and official promotion of same sex coupling today). (E.) Black describes how attempts were made (draft legislation, 1921--Op. Cit.) to introduce marriage restrictions, in the name of preventing hereditary blindness (a rare occurrence), but with the intention of adding a multitude of other defective conditions later, also as pretexts, once the controversial rules were established, to cover more of the lower 10 percent (Op. Cit.).

Journal of the American Medical Association, 1933:

‘The fact that among Jews the incidence of blindness is greater than among the remainder of the population of Germany is doubtless due to the increased risk of hereditary transmission resulting from marriage between blood relatives’ (Op Cit.).

...A clear example of the use of a medical pretext to disguise an agenda of persecution. (E.) Black explains how another 1933 (ERO) article, on hereditary blindness in twins, highlighted the need for medical discoveries as pretexts in the quest for the impolitic, restrictive eugenic marriage laws. Ten years later, with funds from the same backer [via the US-financed ‘German Research Society’], the handiwork of Otmar Verschuer henchman Josef Mengele at Auschwitz left us with one of the many haunting images of Holocaust horror: “an entire wall covered with pairs of human eyeballs, pinned up like butterflies.”9

One 1937 Nazi propaganda film distributed (by ERO) in the US (to among others, the Society for the Prevention of Blindness) portrayed Jews as having a high percentage of mental illness, implying good candidates for gassing under Nazi eugenics laws (op. cit.).

Targeting on whatever pretext, quickly becomes racist and political [‘problem of blind/mentally ill Jews’]. The same can be said of other ‘humanitarian’ pretexts today such as population control or reduction as campaigns against hunger, poverty or for sustainability or women’s rights. Nazi biological politics were also sometimes framed in terms of “population control” (by Rockefeller-funded Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Psychiatry’s Verschuer, for example). Note well that the same institutional backers now as then are promoting GM ‘Golden Rice’ in Asia ‘to prevent blindness.’


In the US, some 60,000 of the socially marginal were sterilized under the eugenic laws until their repeal in ca. 1970. In Germany, the cataloguing of the ‘unfit’ took on full IT rigor thanks to the IBM-managed [DEHOMAG] German census to compile comprehensive population statistics. The Nazi sterilization law of July 14, 1933 (French Revolution anniversary), passed months after the opening of the first concentration camp (Dachau in Munich), “reads like the [American] ERO model sterilization law”(--Op. Cit.). The Germans however had the ‘courage of the Anglo-Saxon elite’s convictions.’ The “Law for the Prevention of Defective Progeny” saw nearly half a million Germans sterilized the next year.

The emergency of ‘population control’ is a false problem. Nature is perfectly capable of checking excess without ‘pre-emptive’ intervention. Population concerns and ‘sustainability’ are scientific fronts for political persecution, sterilization, or negative ‘selektion’ (in the Nazi sense). ...A system eliminating its victims as a criminal would cover evidence of his crimes (--British Labour movement).


“We have to take away from humans in the long run their reproductive autonomy as the only way to guarantee the advancement of mankind." --Francis Crick


Modern Population Control -- Saving the Great Whites

The historical background is not merely academic. The belief in a eugenic ‘problem of the lower 10 percent’ was reiterated as recently as 2003 by then Cold Spring Harbor Institute of Eugenics chief, James Watson of DNA fame. Watson was later ‘suspended’ from the position for telling the London UK Times that Blacks had inferior intelligence. The old, eugenic world views persist today, even if they are usually more carefully concealed with doublespeak. For his part, Watson’s DNA sidekick, Francis Crick has equally professed a pro-eugenics stance: “We have to take away from humans in the long run their reproductive autonomy as the only way to guarantee the advancement of mankind."

5 National Security Study Memo 200 (The Kissinger Report, 1974)
The NSSM 200 specifies the (developing) countries to be targeted with depopulation measures as of 1974:

“Assistance for population moderation should give primary emphasis to the largest and fastest growing developing countries where there is special U.S. political and strategic interest. Those countries are: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Colombia.”

[Underlined countries still currently targeted by UNFPA.)

NSSM 200 rationale for population control requirement

“The real problems of mineral supplies lie, not in basic physical sufficiency, but in the politico-economic issues of access, terms for exploration and exploitation, and division of the benefits...[With population growth] ...the smooth flow of needed materials will be jeopardized. Although population pressure is obviously not the only factor involved, these types of frustrations are much less likely under conditions of slow or zero population growth.”

"if rapid population growth frustrates their prospects for economic development and social progress, the resulting instability may undermine the conditions for expanded output and sustained flows of such resources." (i.e. they may limit our access to their resources)

*[financial pressures of pop. growth resulting in..] “LDC (least developed country) efforts to obtain better terms of trade through higher prices for exports..”(i.e. our import costs may go up)

*”..threat to political stability; expropriation of foreign interests..” (i.e. property)
