The Darwinian death-cult

The indiscriminate bombing of civilians is now sine qua non

James Watt, who patented but did not invent the first steam engine in 1776 was, interestingly enough, pals with Adam Smith who published The Wealth of Nations in 1776. This was the same year England's rebellious American colonies declared independence. Smith, the first sociologist, argued that economics should be viewed as the product of personal labor in the various strata and sub-strata of society. The true wealth of nations lay in the hands of its individuals, rich and poor alike; not in land, gold or military might. Smith was not an egalitarian. On the contrary, he argued that the ruling elite had a right and a duty to accumulate wealth. But Smith was himself a morally sound Christian who didn't recognize that many of the Seven Deadly Sins, especially greed and avarice, would negate his finely wrought invisible hand. Karl Marx would elaborate this in Das Kapital. So too would Thomas Malthus in On Population (1798) which would amazingly argue that population reduction would invigorate society; once its poorer moribund members were weeded out by Smith's ruthless invisible hand. The current world-wide Climate Change alarm and the notion that population decrease is its cure, is Malthus' argument. Of course, like modern governments, the Goode Reverend presented ways to help the invisible hand along the way; such as by introducing typhus to inner city ghettos. These arguments, presented today as genetics and population control, still determine national policy as free worldwide birth control, abortion, family planning, plus malnutrition, starvation, and disease along with perpetual war help keep population levels low. Most people argue that this is a good thing. They are, of course, convinced that the world is overpopulated by people other than themselves.

The assent of materialistic science

Malthus would later influence Charles Darwin who was among the first of the atheists, or Agnostics as they called it then. Darwin would incredibly present the idea that sex, reproduction and death were the only essential creative forces in the universe. As a corollary God wasn't necessary; most likely did not exist, and indeed probably never existed. Social Darwinism soon followed and is now considered wrong think. That's interesting because Darwin hisself was the first Social Darwinist. From The Descent of Man (1871):

With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination. We build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man himself, hardly anyone is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.

Darwin's Cousin Francis Galton heeded the call and founded the Eugenics (good birth) movement. Their answer was sterilization and euthanasia (good death) of the unworthy. Galton: What Nature does blindly, slowly and ruthlessly, man may do providently, quickly and kindly. Indubitably. When Nazi doctors were hauled before the Nuremburg Tribunals they said to the Americans: We got our ideas from you! Indeed they had. The Human Betterment Foundation was established in Pasadena (1923). They led the nation in sterilizations and were in regular communication with National Socialist Germany. American eugenist, C.M. Goethe, in an address to the foundation:

You will be interested to know that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program. Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought, and particularly by the work of the Human Betterment Foundation. I want you... to carry this thought with you for the rest of your life, that you have really jolted into action a great government of 60 million people.

They sure did. It hasn't gone away either. California and Sweden continued sterilization of the poor and minorities into the 1980's. Social Darwinism has a new name too: Sociobiology attempts to understand human behavior through its evolution from lower animals. It's a scam centered upon dehumanization which is anti-ethical, anti-clerical and contrary to all religious thought.

The commercialization of war

Soon, in the century to come, hundreds of millions of ordinary people would meet untimely death in an endless series of wars directed primarily against them. The current World War (1912-2023), now enters its 2nd century of doom. There are plenty of reasons for it. One is that the population reduction crowd, led by hundreds of organizations world-wide, as well as smooth-talking notables and mouthpieces for murder like Jane Goodall, Bill Gates, the late Jacques-Yves Cousteau and his crowd, King Charles, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, Tom Hanks, Klaus Schwab, the Rockefeller Foundation and thousands more who argue steadfastly that billions more need to die in order to "save the planet." The world is filled with "useless eaters" they say. Darwinism is the fundamental science behind their notion that the death of billions will comfortably assure the survival of an elite group and their supplicants who meet in Davos every January to plot our extermination. The real problem is poor resource management but nobody will talk about that: it would reduce corporate profits and seriously inhibit the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

Death as an alternative force for good

Darwinism is an extrapolation and generalization of Natural Selection, a process first named and observed by the naturalist Patrick Matthew in 1831. He was concerned with increased bounty in foodstuffs and saw this could be gained by selective breeding in animals and plants. Darwin later proposed that these same processes in the field could be a creative force in nature. His theory is a generalization because the only truth in it is Matthew's observation. The transformation of one species into another has never been observed nor demonstrated. Essentially, can the small changes that Darwin observed in birds (coloration, beak size, etc.) or in later observed demographic shift (moth and bacteria populations), create new organs and species? The answer is no. For example, the massive propaganda machine connected to Darwinist education shills the notion that antibiotic resistance bacteria have "evolved."
