Hitler 1934 – Holdren 1969

http://news.google.com/newspapers

If we may safely rule out circumvention of the Second Law or the divorce of energy requirements from population size, this suggests that, whatever science and technology may accomplish, population growth must be stopped.

But it cannot be emphasized enough that if the population control measures are not initiated immediately and effectively, all the technology man can bring to bear will not fend off the misery to come.’0 Therefore, confronted as we are with limited resources of time and money, we must consider carefully what fraction of our effort should be applied to the cure of the disease itself instead of to the  temporary relief of the symptoms. We should ask, for example, how many vasectomies could be performed by a program funded with the 1.8 billion dollars required to build a single nuclear agro-industrial complex, and what the relative impact on the problem would be in both the short and long terms. The decision for population control will be opposed by growth-minded economists and businessmen, by nationalistic statesmen, by zealous religious leaders, and by the myopic and well-fed of every description. It is therefore incumbent on all who  sense the limitations of technology and the fragility of the environmental balance to make themselves heard above the hollow, optimistic chorus-to convince society  and its leaders that there is no alternative but the cessation of our irresponsible,  all-demanding, and all-consuming population growth.

– Obama science czar John Holdren, 1969

    To be fair… he moved on a bit from this rather lame 1969 position.
    In 1977:
    “In a book Holdren co-authored in 1977, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote that:
    • Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;
    • The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food;
    • Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;
    • People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables) “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” — in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.
    • A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force.

      Yeh, he’s one of my favs. We must save humanity by killing humanity.

      This slimeball no doubt had to take the oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic …, but clearly could care less about it. Congratulations America to those of you that voted for the putz. You handed the house keys to a bunch of rotten spoiled children with matches in their pockets.

      Holdren’s lucky I’m not in charge.

      Let me try again, with the quote:

      “A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force.”

      This slimeball no doubt had to take the oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic …, but clearly could care less about it. Congratulations America to those of you that voted for the putz. You handed the house keys to a bunch of rotten spoiled children with matches in their pockets.

      Holdren’s lucky I’m not in charge.

    The USA and UK started the Eugenics movement. In fact Charles Darwin’s son was the “IPCC Head” of the movement, and they had global conferences 3 or 4 I think and all leaders attended.

    Germany just took it to a higher level, though America was doing lots of Eugenics early last century.

    There is not much difference, it too had a consensus, they said we would not get to the year 2000 if the humans were cleaned, and only WW2 stopped this movement

  3. Scarlet Pumpernickel says:

    John Holdren: I no longer think it’s productive, Senator, to focus on the optimum population of the United States. I don’t think any of us know what the right answer is. When I wrote those lines in 1973, uh, I was preoccupied with the fact that many problems the United States faced appeared to be being made more difficult by the greater population growth that then prevailed. I think everyone who studies these matters understands that population growth brings some benefits and some liabilities; it’s a tough question to determine which will prevail in a given time period.
