I could have saved thousands — if only I’d been able to convince them they were slaves.Harriet Tubman (disputed)
The following is a candid, honest, and courageous statement, with which I believe many can relate:
In order to give this gentleman any credibility it would require me to believe his claim (or even just the logical notion of his claim) that there are American world leaders such as George Bush and others, who are genicidical (if that’s a word).
Unfortunately, there are. We all recall WWII, and the atrocities of Nazi Germany, right? The Hollerith machine, named after Herman Hollerith, was the infamous machine used to number the Jews. It was made by IBM. Edwin Black has done a masterful job of documenting the history in books like IBM and the Holocaust: The Strategic Alliance between Nazi Germany and America’s Most Powerful Corporation (2001) as well as articles like this at the Jewish Virtual Library: IBM & “Death’s Calculator”. Incidentally, speaking of George Bush, it’s an established fact of history Prescott Bush was a Nazi financier. But that rabbit hole goes deep – very deep, and perhaps the best place to start investigating that thread is the bibliography of Stanford University Hoover Institution fellow, Antony Sutton.
Unfortunately, as Edwin Black clearly illustrates; it wasn’t just IBM, it didn’t start in Nazi Germany – nor did it end there. In his follow-up book, WAR AGAINST THE WEAK: Eugenics and America’s Campaign to Create a Master Race (2003) Black pulls the veneer back and reveals the ugly truth; the eugenics movement which gave rise to the atrocities of Nazi Germany, actually stemmed from the proxy of British and American aristocracy. What’s worse; after the war, it was reimported back to America, in the form of Operation Paperclip, and various related efforts. Today, most Americans have forgotten that the Nazis were also considered progressives and national socialists – just like Bernie Sanders and his supporters. But it’s not just Bernie, or his supporters. Americans fail to realize; Nazi Germany isn’t socialism gone wrong – it’s socialism’s natural end.
National Socialism is nothing but applied biology.Rudolf Hess
Glenn Beck has done several excellent series on this, going back more than a decade (which I consider some of his best work) including interviews with Edwin Black, discussing this difficult subject matter.
This is a very troubling thing to digest, but a fact of history nonetheless. What’s more astonishing is how deep these roots run, how open and in our faces it’s been, and yet how little we’ve noticed. Take for instance the Bellamy Salute during the Pledge of Allegiance. Who knew? And yet, this influence of the “Anglophile network” or “Anglo-American Establishment” as Georgetown University professor, Carroll Quigley referred to it, became pervasive throughout America, and beyond. Many people recall with horror the long history of forced sterilization campaigns in America. But how many are aware for instance of the Race Betterment Foundation and the National Conferences on Race Betterment, funded by the super-rich like John Harvey Kellogg, or the Rockefeller campaign to sterilize 15 Million Americans?
Despite these kinds of efforts by the Rockefeller Foundation, as Gary Allen noted in The Rockefeller File (1976) Chapter 4: Profit x Philanthropy = Power wealth can often be employed to launder an otherwise sullied reputation – and history. And as the Reece Committee proved in the 1950s, it helps to have the media under the purview of wealth too. Incidentally, as a result of the Reece Committee investigation, the power and reach of the large non-profit foundations was proven to be so far-reaching and the story (danger) so vastly under-reported by the media, chief legal counsel to the Reece Committee, Rene A. Wormser wrote Foundations: Their Power and Influence (1958)
What’s perhaps saddest, is the far advanced state we’re in today in America – and most Americans don’t even realize it. Abortion is a eugenics initiative, but how many Americans today even bat an eye at the mention of it? Even Ben Carson knows; Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood are no friend of black people.
Well, you know, maybe I’m not objective when it comes to Planned Parenthood. But, you know, I know who Margaret Sanger is, and I know that she believed in eugenics, and that she was not particularly enamored with black people, and one of the reasons that you find most of their clinics in black neighborhoods is so that you can find a way to control that population, and I think people should go back and read about Margaret Sanger who founded this place, a woman who Hillary Clinton by the way says that she admires. Look and see what many people in Nazi Germany thought about her.Dr. Ben Carson
The eugenics work of the Rockefeller Foundation has continued on, and the torch has been passed most notably to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As the New York Times noted in 2005, the Gates Foundation has proudly continued the work of the Rockefeller Foundation. Although today, despite the fact that things like abortion, euthanasia, so-called ‘birth control’, etc. are patently eugenicist in nature, they’re no longer referred to by the term ‘eugenics’ which has fallen under bad reputation, for obvious reasons. Today, As Francis Fukuyama reminds us in Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution (2002) the new & improved, kinder-gentler name for eugenics is: genetic engineering.
Genetic engineering puts eugenics squarely back on the table, but it is clear that any future approach to eugenics will be very different from the historical varieties, at least in the developed West. … leading to the possibility of a kinder, gentler eugenics that will rob the word of some of the horror traditionally associated with it.
The kinder, gentler eugenics that is just over the horizon will then be a matter of individual choice on the part of parents, and not something that a coercive state forces on its citizens. In the words of one commentator, “The old eugenics would have required a continual selection for breeding of the fit, and a culling of the unfit. The new eugenics would permit in principle the conversion of all the unfit to the highest genetic level.”
As George Orwell observed, insincerity is the great enemy of plain language. If one senses a bit of insincerity in Fukuyama, it is perhaps worth noting that he is a student of Samuel P. Huntington, author of The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order (1996) derived in response to Fukuyama’s The End of History and the Last Man (1992) (i.e. ultimate clash = last man). The point being; there are still those who seek to reserve the new kinder, gentler eugenics of genetic engineering for themselves, while watching the rest of ‘civilization’ destroy itself. So the ever-pressing question remains; who decides…?
