The Genocidal Mind of the Empire
Could there possibly be human beings who have such a perverted view of the nature of mankind, as to want to radically reduce the number of people alive? Who see people as a "cancer" on the Earth which should be excised, rather than the source of creative growth for the universe as a whole? Not only is the answer yes, but it is the people who think like thatthe imperial financial oligarchywho are the controlling power on our Earth today.
As a supplement to LaRouche's article above ("The Calamity of the Second Obama Administration"), we document some of the more blunt and vicious ravings of the British oligarchy, and its lackeys, up through today, especially in the largely British-spawned Green movement. This is the enemy we must defeat.
Parson Thomas Malthus (1766-1834) was a hired pen for the College of the East India Company, a core institution of the British Empire, which had been consolidated in 1763, and his views on the need to suppress populationof the lower classes, of coursewere tailored to that Empire's needs. We quote from his "Essay on the Principle of Population":
"We are bound in justice and honour formally to disdain the right of the poor to support.
Lord Bertrand Russell
Lord Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) was a member of a prominent British aristocratic family, who became a leading source of intellectual evil during a large part of the 20th Century, shaping the diseases of Fabianism, mathematics, and greenie-ism. While known as a pacifist, Russell actually called for pre-emptive nuclear war against the Soviet Union in 1946. His viciously anti-human views are most sharply expressed in his 1923 Prospects for Industrial Civilization, and 1951 book Impact of Science on Society.

From the latter:
Since World War II, the leading spokesman for the anti-human policies of the British financial establishment has been Queen Elizabeth's Royal Consort, Prince Philip (b. 1921), who co-founded the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) in 1961, and has spurred the expansion and penetration of private and government institutions globally with the pernicious Malthusian ideology. Just a few examples will suffice.

Prince Philip was quoted by the Deutsche Presse Agentur, August 1988:
Britain's Green Movement
Paul R. Ehrlich: One book which spurred the 1960s paradigm shift to anti-human green ideology was The Population Bomb, written by lepidopterologist Ehrlich and his wife, and published in 1968. Ehrlich, who is still active in depopulation groups such as the British royalty-sponsored Population Matters (formerly the Optimum Population Trust), showed his view of mankind in that book as follows:
In the wake of the publication of the British Royal Society's April 2012 "People and the Planet" report, which called in general terms for limiting population, Ehrlich said the following to the London Guardian:
Dennis Meadows: Known for his co-authorship of the notorious Limits to Growth book of the British depopulation movement's Club of Rome, Meadows continues to be active in demanding a reduction in population. Exemplary is his interview with Spiegel Online on Dec. 9, 2009, where he was commenting on the failure of the Copenhagen Climate Summit. Asked for his proposal, he said: "We have to learn to live a fulfilled life with the CO2 emissions of Afghanistan." (Note that Afghanistan's per-capita energy consumption is approximately 35 kWh, compared to 12,000 plus for the U.S.A. Thirty-six percent of the Afghan population has access to electricity. Its death rate is almost double that of the United States.)
"Is this possible with 9 billion people on this planet?" asks the interviewer.
Population Matters: This British-based group, heavily staffed with knighted Britons, won notoriety under its original name, Optimum Population Trust (OPT), which recommended drastic worldwide cuts in population, including in Great Britain, based on the fraudulent "carbon footprint" measurement. OPT was founded in 1991, and specializes in putting out "sustainability" figures based on suppressing advanced technologies and promoting population control, including through abortion.
One prominent member is the Baronet Jonathon Porritt, who functioned as a senior green advisor to former British Prime Ministers Gordon Brown and Tony Blair. In early 2009, Porritt called for cutting the population of Great Britain from the current 61 million subjects to no more than 30 million. That was the level of Britain's population during Victorian England.
This outfit, which features sponsors such as naturalists Sir David Attenborough and Dame Jane Goodall, embraces a global population goal of no more than 4 billion people3 billion fewer than today, and 5-6 billion fewer than current trends portend.
OPT issued a press release March 16, 2009, titled "Earth Heading for 5 Billion Overpopulation?" which said: "Based on ecological footprint and biological capacity data which have become available over the last decade, OPT estimates the world's sustainable population currently at 5 billion and the U.K.'s at 18 million (the U.K.'s actual current population is 61 million).
"However," the release continued, "these figures are predicated on present levels and patterns of consumption. Greener lifestyles in the U.K. could push up its sustainable population; by contrast, if the world as a whole grows richer and consumes more, this will reduce the planet's carrying capacity. If present trends continue, 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." I.e., only 4 billion need apply.
The OPT is so integrated into the British-dominated UN structure that the the United Nations Population Fund gave its de facto blessing to OPT's mass murder scheme on Nov. 18, 2009, when it featured its director, Roger Martin, as a presenter of the UN's own "State of World Population 2009" report.
Attenborough, one of OPT's leading promoters, received the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts prize on March 10, 2011, from Prince Philip, the RSA president.
With Philip at his side, Attenborough stated: "We now realize that the disasters that continue increasingly to afflict the natural world have one element that connects them allthe unprecedented increase in the number of human beings on this planet," as Malthus warned. But no one proposes the necessary measures to curb human population, which makes every problem worse. "Why this strange silence? ... There seems to be some bizarre taboo around the subject.... There are over 100 countries whose combinations of numbers and affluence have already pushed them past the sutainable level.... It is tragic that the only current population policies in developed countries are, perversely, attempting to increase their birth rate, in order to look after the growing number of old people. The notion of ever more old people needing ever more young people, who will in turn grow old and need even more young people, and so on, ad infinitum, is an obvious ecological Ponzi scheme."
Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research: This Berlin, Germany-based organization is headed by a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, who has pushed through a denuclearization, deindustrialization program in Germany over the past two years. (He was knighted in 2004.) Schellnhuber, at the March 2009 Copenhagen Climate Conference, asserted that his computer models had thoroughly shown that, if his plan for denying nuclear and carbon based energy supplies for humanity were not implemented, the carrying capacity of Earth would be only 1 billion people.
Schellnhuber's "solution," a global green dictatorship, echos the brutal logic that his much admired mentor Bertrand Russell expressed in his infamous October 1946 Bulletin of Atomic Scientists article, in which Russell called for nuclear war against the Soviet Union, if it did not accept his plan for world government. Only weeks after his warning, Schellnhuber met with HRH Prince Charles at his Potsdam Institute in April 2009, and, in late May, opened the Nobel Laureate Symposium on Global Sustainability, hosted by Prince Charles, at his St. James Palace.
