DELPHINE LA LAURIE (1775 – 1842) was a sadistic socialite who lived in New Orleans. Her home was a chamber of horrors.
On April 10, 1834 a fire broke out in the mansion’s kitchen, and firefighters found two slaves chained to the stove. They appeared to have started the fire themselves, in order to attract attention. The firefighters were lead by other slaves to the attic, where the real surprise was. Over a dozen disfigured and maimed slaves were manacled to the walls or floors. Several had been the subjects of gruesome medical experiments.
Margaret Sanger aligned herself with the eugenicists whose ideology prevailed in the early 20th century. Eugenicists strongly espoused racial supremacy and “purity,” particularly of the “Aryan” race. Eugenicists hoped to purify the bloodlines and improve the race by encouraging the “fit” to reproduce and the “unfit” to restrict their reproduction. They sought to contain the “inferior” races through segregation, sterilization, birth control and abortion.
Sanger embraced Malthusian eugenics. Thomas Robert Malthus, a 19th-century cleric and professor of political economy, believed a population time bomb threatened the existence of the human race.2 He viewed social problems such as poverty, deprivation and hunger as evidence of this “population crisis.” According to writer George Grant, Malthus condemned charities and other forms of benevolence, because he believed they only exacerbated the problems. His answer was to restrict population growth of certain groups of people.3 His theories of population growth and economic stability became the basis for national and international social policy. Grant quotes from Malthus' magnum opus, An Essay on the Principle of Population, published in six editions from 1798 to 1826:
The public is waking to the reality of global climate change, given the fact that industry is acknowledging the costs of failing to deal with it now. However, even those who accept its reality have a psychological block against seeing that a massive die off of humans is all but inevitable as a result.
Climate change limits how long we have to stop the madness of the current world system and find a way to save humanity from itself, but there is an inherent limit on how long we can continue to consume the Earth's resources at the current rate, let alone one that would result from helping other nations reach their economic potential. This is the population bomb that is ticking while Westerners fret about their declining standard of living. Until we deal with this, that is also unavoidable.
The implication of all this is that that it will lead to draconian methods of government control of a restive world population unless we unite to find our own solution democratically.
On February 16 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST talked about these and other dangers Mankind faces that threaten civilization itself. Our guest was Kevin Galalae, prolific writer and speaker on the issue of depopulation who has a very interesting personal story to share as well.

"This American Barfbag."
Liam and Robert Scott Bell do an impolite, complete, and blistering deconstruction of the 'liberal' view of AIDS - which is revealed by NPR's "This American Life" (the "Gossip" episode) to be little more than a renewal and redo of old Malthusian racism of the Imperial past...

In this exclusive interview for Prison Planet.tv subscribers, author Webster Tarpley goes into detail on a whole host of historical, financial and geopolitical issues in a bid to outline the major crises, revolutions and wars that will hit the globe over the next decade and shape the future of our world. Tarpley begins by discussing how the Neo-Malthusian ecological extremists in the Obama regime have a shared hatred for science, technology and industry and how they really are contemplating an
Economist Robin Hanson and futurist Brian Wang join us as we continue our special series leading up Foresight 2010. The conference, January 16-17 in Palo Alto, California, provides a unique opportunity to explore the convergence of nanotechnology and artificial intelligence and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Foresight Institute.
Robin Hanson is an associate professor of economics at George Mason University, a research associate at the Future of Humanity Institute of Oxford University, and chief scientist at Consensus Point. Robin is a pioneer in the field of prediction markets, also known as information markets or idea futures. He was a principal architect of the first internal corporate markets, as well as the Foresight Exchange beginning in 1994, and of DARPA's Policy Analysis Market, from 2001 to 2003. Robin has diverse research interests everything from health incentive contracts, to Bayesian classification, agreeing to disagree, self-deception in disagreement, to growth given machine intelligence, and interstellar colonization. He blogs at Overcoming Bias.
Brian Wang is a futurist
who blogs about all things future-related at NextBigFuture.
He is the Director of Research for the Lifeboat Foundation and a member
of the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology Task Force.
On a special Wednesday edition of FastForward Radio, futurists Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon explore various issues related to the future, including the future of human evolution. Recently at the Speculist we've been talking about whether humanity is evolving away from negative traits such as racism, but we're also forced to confront the issue of whether we're evolving towards negative traits such as obsessive media-driven attention-seeking.
Recent studies show that human beings are becoming more fertile. Is there a chance that increased fecundity will lead to a dumbing down of humanity as depicted in the movie Idiocracy? Taking a longer view, are we living in a mysterious dream time that comes before the true beginning of human history, and making (perhaps unfortunate) choices that will impact trillions of lives for many billions of years to come?
Tune in and discuss.
