He (man) generally, indeed, neither intendsto promote the public interest, nor knows howmuch he is promoting it. By preferring thesupport of domestic to that of foreign industry,he intends only his own security; and bydirecting that industry in such a manner as itsproduce may be of the greatest value, heintends only his own gain, and he is in this, as inmany other cases, led by an invisible hand topromote an end which was no part of hisintention.— Adam SmithWealth of Nations ,1776
“To man is allotted a much humblerdepartment... Nature has directed us to thegreater part of these by original andimmediate instincts. Hunger, thirst, the passionwhich unites the two sexes, the love ofpleasure, and the dread of pain, prompt us toapply those means for their own sakes, andwithout any consideration of their tendency tothose beneficent ends which the greatDirector of nature intended to produce bythem.”— Adam SmithTheory of Moral Sentiments (1759)
All children who are born, beyond what wouldbe required to keep up the population to adesired level, must necessarily perish, unlessroom be made for them by the death of grownpersons... Therefore... we should facilitate,instead of foolishly and vainly endeavoring toimpede, the operations of nature in producingthis mortality; and if we dread the too frequentvisitation of the horrid form of famine, weshould sedulously encourage the other forms ofdestruction, which we compel nature to use…— Parson Thomas Malthusfrom An Essay on the Principle of Population (1798 to 1826)
…Instead of recommending cleanliness to the poor,we should encourage contrary habits. In our townswe should make the streets narrower, crowd morepeople into the houses, and court the return of theplague. In the country, we should build our villagesnear stagnant pools, and particularly encouragesettlement in all marshy and unwholesomesituations. But above all we should reprobatespecific remedies for ravaging diseases; and restrainthose benevolent, but much mistaken men, whohave thought they are doing a service to mankindby protecting schemes for the total extirpation ofparticular disorders.— Parson Thomas Malthusfrom An Essay on the Principle of Population (1798 to 1826)

MALTHUS INFLUENCE ON DARWIN In October 1838, that is, fifteen months after Ihad begun my systematic inquiry, I happened toread for amusement Malthus on Population, andbeing well prepared to appreciate the strugglefor existence which everywhere goes on fromlong-continued observation of the habits ofanimals and plants, it at once struck me thatunder these circumstances favourable variationswould tend to be preserved, and unfavourableones to be destroyed. The results of this would bethe formation of a new species. Here, then I hadat last got a theory by which to work.— Charles Darwin, from his autobiography (1876)
"The Struggle for Existence amongst all organic beingsthroughout the world... inevitably follows from their highgeometrical powers of increase... This is the doctrine ofMalthus, applied to the whole animal and vegetablekingdoms. As many more individuals of each species areborn than can possibly survive; and as, consequently,there is a frequently recurring struggle for existence, itfollows that any being, if it vary however slightly in anymanner profitable to itself... will have a better chance ofsurviving, and thus be naturally selected." ++ From the Introduction of The Origin of Species, whose full titleis “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or thePreservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life,” 1859 ++— Charles Darwin

“But bad times, you may say, are exceptional, and can bedealt with by exceptional methods. This has been more or lesstrue during the honeymoon period of industrialism, but it willnot remain true unless the increase of population can beenormously diminished. At present the population of theworld is increasing at about 58,000 per diem. War, so far, hashad no very great effect on this increase, which continuedthrough each of the world wars… War… has hitherto beendisappointing in this respect… but perhaps bacteriologicalwar may prove more effective. If a Black Death could spreadthroughout the world once in every generation, survivorscould procreate freely without making the world too full…The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but whatof it? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness,especially other people’s.”— Bertrand RussellThe Impact of Science on Society (1953)
“Socialism, especially international socialism, is onlypossible as a stable system if the population is stationaryor nearly so. A slow increase might be coped with byimprovements in agricultural methods, but a rapidincrease must in the end reduce the whole population topenury… The white population of the world will sooncease to increase. The Asiatic races will be longer, andthe negroes still longer, before their birth rate fallssufficiently to make their numbers stable without help ofwar and pestilence…Until that happens, the benefitsaimed at by socialism can only be partially realized, andthe less prolific races will have to defend themselvesagainst the more prolific by methods which aredisgusting even if they are necessary.”— Bertrand RussellThe Prospects of Industrial Civilization (1923)
“I think the subject which will be of mostimportance politically is mass psychology… Itsimportance has been enormously increased bythe growth of modern methods of propaganda.Of these the most influential is what is called‘education.’ Religion plays a part, though adiminishing one; the press, the cinema, and theradio play an increasing part… It may be hopedthat in time anybody will be able to persuadeanybody of anything if he can catch the patientyoung and is provided by the State with moneyand equipment…— Bertrand RussellThe Impact of Science on Society (1953)
…The subject will make great strides when it istaken up by scientists under a scientificdictatorship… The social psychologists of the futurewill have a number of classes of school children onwhom they will try different methods of producingan unshakable conviction that snow is black.Various results will soon be arrived at. First, that theinfluence of home is obstructive. Second, that notmuch can be done unless indoctrination beginsbefore the age of ten. Third, that verses set tomusic and repeatedly intoned are very effective.Fourth, that the opinion that snow is white must beheld to show a morbid taste for eccentricity…— Bertrand RussellThe Impact of Science on Society (1953)
…But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to makethese maxims precise and discover exactly howmuch it costs per head to make children believethat snow is black, and how much less it would costto make them believe it is dark gray.Although this science will be diligently studied, it willbe rigidly confined to the governing class. Thepopulace will not be allowed to know how itsconvictions were generated. When the techniquehas been perfected, every government that hasbeen in charge of education for a generation willbe able to control its subjects securely without theneed of armies or policemen.”— Bertrand RussellThe Impact of Science on Society (1953)
“In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like toreturn as a deadly virus, in order to contributesomething to solve overpopulation.”++ Reported by Deutsche Press Agentur (August 1988) ++“I just wonder what it would be like to bereincarnated in an animal whose species hadbeen so reduced in numbers that it was in dangerof extinction.

“Human population growth is probably the single mostserious long-term threat to survival. We’re in for a majordisaster if it isnt curbed—not just for the natural world, butfor the human world. The more people there are, the moreresources they’ll consume, the more pollution they’ll create,the more fighting they will do. We have no option. If it isn’tcontrolled voluntarily, it will be controlled involuntarily by anincrease in disease, starvation and war.”++ People magazine (1981) ++“I don’t claim to have any special interest in naturalhistory, but as a boy I was made aware of the annualfluctuations in the number of game animals and the needto adjust the “cull” to the size of the surplus population.”++ Down to Earth (1988) ++ — Prince Philip Founder, World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
“For example, the World Health Organization Project,designed to eradicate malaria from Sri Lanka in thepost-war years, achieved its purpose. But theproblem today is that Sri Lanka must feed three timesas many mouths, find three times as many jobs,provide three times the housing, energy, schools,hospitals and land for settlement in order to maintainthe same standards. Little wonder the naturalenvironment and wildlife in Sri Lanka has suffered.The fact [is] ... that the best-intentioned aid programsare at least partially responsible for the problems.”++ Address on Receiving Honorary Degree from the University ofWestern Ontario, Canada, July 1, 1983 ++— Prince PhilipFounder, World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
“So long as they [birth control methods]... remained taboosubjects the chances of making any impression on thehuman population explosion were that much more remote.“In the introduction to the IUCN Red Data Books which list allanimals and plants under threat of extinction, it says thatvirtually everywhere the major threat to a wild species is lossof habitat to a rapidly increasing human population requiringmore space in order to build villages and cities and growmore food. But starvation and poverty cannot beeradicated solely by increased food and resources at theexpense of what remains of the natural world. Any increasein the provision of food and resources must beaccompanied by a drastic reduction in the rate of increasein the human population.”++ Speech at the Margaret Pyke Memorial Trust Dinner in London,Dec. 14 1983 ++— Prince PhilipFounder, World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
Sir David Attenborough born May 8, 1926 Prince Philip born June 10, 1921
Sir David Attenborough & Prince Philip Here is the genocidal speech by Sir David Attenborough onhis reception of the Royal Society for the Encouragement ofArts (RSA) prize on March 10, 2011. Prince Philip is the RSApresident.With Prince Philip himself chairing the meeting,Attenborough, a "naturalist," stated: "We now realize thatthe disasters that continue increasingly to afflict the naturalworld have one element that connects them all--theunprecedented increase in the number of human beingson this planet," as Malthus warned. But no one proposes thenecessary measures to curb human population, whichmakes every problem worse.
"Why this strange silence... There seems to be some bizarretaboo around the subject... There are over 100 countrieswhose combinations of numbers and affluence have alreadypushed them past the sustainable level... It is tragic that theonly current population policies in developed countries are,perversely, attempting to increase their birth rate, in order tolook after the growing number of old people. The notion ofever more old people needing ever more young people, whowill in turn grow old and need even more young people, andso on, ad infinitum, is an obvious ecological Ponzi scheme."Attenborough calls "the one glimmer of hope" that "whereverwomen have the vote, are literate, and can control thenumber of children they bear, the birth rate falls. In Kerala,India, all these factors come together to produce 1.7 birthsper woman; in India as a whole, the fertility rate is 2.8 birthsper woman. But compare that with the Catholic Philippines,where it is 3.3..."
Each of us must "break the taboo, in private and inpublic... Wherever and whenever we speak of theenvironment--add a few words to ensure that thepopulation element is not ignored. If you are amember of a relevant NGO, invite them toacknowledge it. If you belong to a Church—andespecially if you are a Catholic—because itsdoctrine on contraception is a major factor in thisproblem, suggest they consider the ethical issuesinvolved... If you have contacts in government, askwhy the growth of our population which affectsevery department is yet no ones responsibility. Big,empty Australia has appointed a SustainablePopulation Minister, so why cant small, crowdedBritain?"
Prince Philip, the President of the RSA for 59 years,corrected Attenborough, that the first majorenvironmentalist organization was not WWF, but IUCN—the International Union for the Conservation ofNature. The scientific side of it knew the populationproblem, but didnt have money and an organizingcapability. "They came by to see me," Philipexplained, "and at the time, there was really a seriousrift" between the scientists, and the organizers andfunders. "Peter Scott, a naturalist who painted birds,came by to see me and asked me to head it up. Iwas already president of another internationalorganization, and I told them to go see PrinceBernhard of the Netherlands." (Prince Bernhard was amember of the Nazi Party who was forced to resignfrom it in order to hold onto his title.)
Philip said, "I had only one argument with PeterScott. He said to me, “We must promoteconservation for the benefit of people. We must getpeople interested.” “I said to him, I dont think youreright. We must look after animals for their own sake,not for our sake, so that people can have parks andgo to look at them. If that happens, people will puttheir own interests first."++2011 Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts(RSA) President’s Lecture++—Sir David Attenborough and Prince Philip
“Even though…Any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for UNESCO to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now isThe eugenicist Sir Julian unthinkable may at leastHuxley, a founder of the become thinkable.”World Wildlife Fund and ofUNESCO, preferredpreserving wildlife to saving — Sir Julian Huxleyhuman lives.

Depopulation shouldbe the highest priority offoreign policy towardsthe third world, becausethe US economy willrequire large andincreasing amounts ofminerals from abroad,especially from lessdeveloped countries.— Henry KissingerNSSM 200, 1974National Security Study Memorandum
There is also some established precedent fortaking account of family planning performancein appraisal of assistance requirements by AID[U.S. Agency for International Development] andconsultative groups. Since population growth is amajor determinant of increases in food demand,allocation of scarce PL 480 resources should takeaccount of what steps a country is taking inpopulation control as well as food production. Inthese sensitive relations, however, it is important instyle as well as substance to avoid theappearance of coercion.— Henry KissingerNSSM 200, 1974
NSSM 200++ 13 "key countries" in which the United Stateshad a "special political and strategic interest":India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand,the Philippines, Turkey, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia,Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia++ Claimed that population growth in thosestates was especially worrisome, since it wouldquickly increase their relative political,economic, and military strength
“Basically, then, there are only two kinds ofsolutions to the population problem. One is a"birth rate solution," in which we find ways tolower the birth rate. The other is a "death ratesolution," in which ways to raise the death rate—war, famine, pestilence—find us.” ++From The Population Bomb, 1968++— Paul Erhlich
"A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication ofcells; the population explosion is anuncontrolled multiplication of people.""We must shift our efforts from the treatment ofthe symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer.The operation will demand many apparentlybrutal and heartless decisions.”++From The Population Bomb, 1968++— Paul Erhlich
"How many [people] you support depends onlifestyles. We came up with 1.5 to 2 billionbecause you can have big active cities andwilderness. If you want a battery chicken worldwhere everyone has minimum space and foodand everyone is kept just about alive you mightbe able to support in the long term about 4 or 5billion people. But you already have 7 billion. Sowe have to humanely and as rapidly as possiblemove to population shrinkage…— Paul Erhlich
…The question is: can you go over the topwithout a disaster, like a worldwide plague or anuclear war between India and Pakistan? If wego on at the pace we are theres going to bevarious forms of disaster. Some maybe slowmotion disasters like people getting more andmore hungry, or catastrophic disasters becausethe more people you have the greater thechance of some weird virus transferring fromanimal to human populations, there could be avast die-off." ++Interview with the London Guardian, April 26th 2012++— Paul Erhlich
Anthropologist MargaretMead gave globalwarming its start, as partof a movement to curbpopulation growth. Hereshe poses at the Museumof Natural History in frontof an Easter Island stonefigure.Mead is famous forsaying, “Instead ofneeding lots of children,we need high-qualitychildren.”
"There are only two possible ways in which a world of 10billion people can be averted. Either the current birthrates must come down more quickly. Or the currentdeath rates must go up."There is no other way."There are, of course, many ways in which the deathrates can go up. In a thermonuclear age, war canaccomplish it very quickly and decisively. Famine anddisease are natures ancient checks on populationgrowth, and neither one has disappeared from thescene...”—Robert McNamaraWorld Bank President (1968-1981)
“…estimates for the carryingcapacity of the planet [are] below1 billion people…”—Hans Joachim SchellnhuberHead of the Potsdam Institute for Climate ResearchCommander of the Most Excellent Order (CBE) of the British Empire (Awarded by Queen Elizabeth in 2004)
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Optimum Population Trust (OPT) Global Footprint Network (GFN)++ In a March 2009 press release, entitled "Earth Heading for 5 Billion Overpopulation?" the OPT estimated the worlds sustainable population at 5 billion— but didnt stop at that. It projected that the addition of more people would mean that by 2050, "when the UN projects world population will be 9.1 billion, there will be an estimated 5 billion more people than the Earth can support.”
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Optimum Population Trust (OPT) Global Footprint Network (GFN)++ So, now the aim is to eliminate 5 billion people. You might consider that mass murder, but the UN Population Fund does not. It featured the OPTs director, Roger Martin, as a presenter of its own "State of World Population 2009" report in the run-up to the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Optimum Population Trust (OPT) Global Footprint Network (GFN)++ Working with the OPT and the WWF is the Global Footprint Network, which, in cooperation with the Zoological Society of London, has taken up the job of setting up a Living Planet index, which determines how many people should live (and die) in every country…
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Optimum Population Trust (OPT) Global Footprint Network (GFN)++ …According to a report the GFN released on the occasion of the 2009 UN Copenhagen Summit, three-quarters of all nations on Earth are using up more resources than they claim the "Earths biocapacity" can sustain. They demanded immediate action by governments and international agencies to reduce population, starting with at least a third (2 billion).
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Optimum Population Trust (OPT) Global Footprint Network (GFN)++ But we have not yet come to the most extreme aim, that of calling for a reduction of human population to below 1 billion. The prize for that goes to John Schellnhuber, head of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research, who was made a Commander of the Most Excellent Order (CBE) of the British Empire in 2004, by Queen Elizabeth.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Optimum Population Trust (OPT) Global Footprint Network (GFN)++ Schellnhuber—who is a longtime collaborator of President Obamas Science and Technology Advisor, John P. Holdren—told a March 13, 2009 pre-meeting of the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference that his studies had calculated "estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people," if his policy of eliminating all modern energy sources (fossils fuels and nuclear) were not implemented. In fact, the world population would be reduced to that level—eliminating 6 billion people— through the implementation of that insane policy.
