For years elderly statesmen from all areas of the planet, global economists and world politicians have decried the ever increasing growth in population and its effects on this orb known as Earth. The cries of decreasing the growth rate have generally fallen on deaf ears, except for a few industrialized countries and most notably China. In the year 1900, six of the top ten cities in the world were located in Europe. They were London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, St. Petersburg and Manchester. Three of them were located in the US, New York, Chicago and Philadelphia. Only one came from the rest of the world. Coming in seventh was Tokyo.
But by 1950, only four cities from Europe remained in the top ten, London, Paris, Moscow, and Berlin. Only two came from the US, New York and Chicago. Tokyo, Shanghai, Buenos Aires and Calcutta were all from other parts of the globe. By the year 2000, not one European city appeared in the top ten. The largest European city was Moscow at number 17. The US had but two cities in the top ten, New York and Los Angeles. Four cities were from Asia, Tokyo, Seoul, Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) and Osaka. Two cities came from Latin America, Mexico City and Sao Paolo. And one city, Cairo, came from Africa. Clearly the demographics of the planet have radically changed over the last 100 years.
Not only have the demographics themselves changed, but the needs of the inhabitants therein have also changed. Prior to the 20th Century the world was overwhelmingly rural and self-sufficient. The vast majority of the world never lived far from their food source and consequently, their livelihood. By the year 2000, the world had become urbane and estranged from its life-giving sustenance. Rather than practicing agriculture and simple handicrafts, the world had moved to sophisticated agribusiness, mass production, and service-oriented industries. The average Joe on the street in any town, anywhere, now knows next to nothing about survival in nature. If the markets were to vanish tomorrow, he would croak within a week.
But this study goes far beyond the fact that the majority of the citizens of planet Earth cannot survive on their own. The mere fact that the world is more urbane than ever before is merely a result of the standard evolutionary process. There is nothing extraordinary here. The fact that world population has grown out of control outside the industrialized nations and China is a direct result of human nature, nothing more. People in industrialized countries tend to fill their lives with non-procreation endeavors, and they often weigh the cost of a new child in the same way they would weigh the cost of a new car.
But the burden of this surge in the global population has quite dramatically affected the orb we call, planet Earth. Pollution is increasing, global warming is threatening more and more areas of the planet, and the ability of mankind in general to cope with these climatological changes is ever narrowing.
But wait, there's more
A casual look back into history will reveal that Thomas Robert Malthus was a person of the English State Church and an economist who lived from 1766-1834. He is best known for his writing "An Essay On The Principle Of Population,"- published in 1798. His main idea is that populations increase more rapidly than food supplies. So, he claimed, there would always be more people in the world than can be fed, and wars and disease will be necessary to kill off the extra population.
Malthus did not claim to be the originator of this idea, although it has come to be known as the "Malthusian Theory". Malthus based his argument on the works of Condorcet, David Hume, Adam Smith, Defoe, Sir James Steuart, Townsend, Franklin, and others.
Turning to the New American Encyclopedia, we read, "Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831), was a German philosopher of idealism who had an immense influence on 19th and 20th-century thought and history. During his life he was famous for his professorial lectures at the University of Berlin and he wrote on logic, ethics, history, religion and aesthetics. The main feature of Hegel's philosophy was the dialectical method by which an idea (thesis) was challenged by its opposite (antithesis) and the two ultimately reconciled in a third idea (synthesis) which subsumed both."-
Enter Haig and Kissinger. Alexander Haig led a distinguished career under General Douglas MacArthur, became White House Chief of Staff under President Nixon, and eventually served as Secretary of State under President Reagan. His ability to create imaginary words in English out of thin air is legendary. Henry Kissinger, born Heinz Alfred Kissinger in 1923 in Furth, Germany, has an even more distinguished past. Though Haig was Secretary of State for just a year, Kissinger held the post for four years and under two different presidents, Nixon and Ford. He was instrumental in the CIA-backed coup in Chile on September 11, 1973, that deposed the democratically elected president Salvador Allende and replaced him with the head of the Chilean military, Augusto Pinochet. Over the years Kissinger has become one of the most influential persons on the world stage. He is a constant member of the Bilderberg Group.
Together, these men issued the Haig-Kissinger Depopulation Policy in 1981. Lonnie Wolf, special reporter for the Executive Intelligence Review, reported in March, 1981, "Investigations by EIR have uncovered a planning apparatus operating outside the control of the White House whose sole purpose is to reduce the world's population by 2 billion people through war, famine, disease and any other means necessary. This apparatus, which includes various levels of the government is determining U.S. foreign policy. In every political hotspot -- El Salvador, the so-called arc of crisis in the Persian Gulf, Latin America, Southeast Asia and in Africa- the goal of U.S. foreign policy is population reduction. The targeting agency for the operation is the National Security Council's Ad Hoc Group on Population Policy. Its policy-planning group is in the U.S.State Department's Office of Population Affairs, established in 1975 by Henry Kissinger. This group drafted the Carter administration's Global 2000 document, which calls for global population reduction."-
But just what is this Depopulation Policy originated by these two men??
"There is a single theme behind all our work-we must reduce population levels," said Thomas Ferguson, the Latin American case officer for the State Department's Office of Population Affairs (OPA). "Either they [governments] do it our way, through nice clean methods or they will get the kind of mess that we have in El Salvador, or in Iran, or in Beirut. Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it. "The professionals," said Ferguson, "aren't interested in lowering population for humanitarian reasons. That sounds nice. We look at resources and environmental constraints. We look at our strategic needs, and we say that this or that must lower its population-or else we will have trouble. "
In July of 1980, Secretary of State endorsed as official Carter administration policy the Global 2000 report, which according to then Secretary of State Edmund Muskie's own words "THE ELIMINATION OF 2 billion human beings by the year... 2000. The Office of Population Affairs of the U.S. State Department from the National Security Council's Ad Hoc Group on Population policy, U.S. Foreign Policy is being planned and implemented on the basis of its effectiveness in murdering human beings. Unprecedented Population growth as spelled out in the ECO summit Meeting in 1992 in Brazil has required the examination of the statistics provided in the studies of "Human Environment" (1972), "Population" (1974), "Human Settlements" (1976), "Water" (1977) and others has shown the MOST growth of Human species in the last 40 years. The first Billion of population occurred on the planet around 1800, the next century ended with about two Billion, the 3rd Billion around 1960, the 4th Billion in approximately 1974, and reached 5 Billion in 1987. We currently exceed 6 Billion on the Planet and the Technicians of Genocide are now stepping up their programs.
Human Life Insight reports, "On December 10, 1974, the United States National Security Council promulgated National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM-200), also called The Kissinger Report. This document explicitly laid out a detailed strategy by which the United States would aggressively promote population control in developing
nations in order to regulate (or have better access to) the natural resources of these countries.
