Human Haters

There is a radical cult of anti-humanity which has evolved, quite willing to do anything to “save the planet” – including culling millions if not billions of human beings. Plenty of radical environmentalists, earth-worshippers, and Green extremists seriously believe that mankind is the problem, and must be dealt with – ruthlessly.

I have documented far too many appalling cases of these human-haters and virulent anti-natalists. Their heinous proposals of culling are presented presumably with a straight face, and maybe even with all the best intentions in the world. After all, who doesn’t want to parade his green credentials?

But the radical proposals being made are simply shocking in the extreme. Consider the latest example of this. Media heavyweight Ted Turner has long been on record as being a bit of a green nutter here, and he is at it again. Consider these opening paragraphs from a recent report:

“Media mogul and population control advocate Ted Turner recently told citizen journalists he would like to reduce the world’s population by five billion people, asking parents to be a ‘one child family…for 100 years.’ Turner had to answer for his history of provocative statements, and made a few new ones, when members of the website wearechange caught up with him on camera late last month.

“One individual asked the CNN founder what his goal was for world population. ‘I think two billion is about right,’ Turner said as he walked briskly away. In October, the number of people in the world reached seven billion. Before disappearing around the corner Turner said he hoped to eliminate five billion people through the ‘one child family.’ The interviewer responded, ‘One child policy.’ Turner answered, ‘For 100 years.’

“In a subsequent interview, Turner was asked if he had said ‘a 95 percent decline from present [population] levels would be ideal’ in the 1990s. Turner replied, “I might have said that, ‘96 was a long time ago.’ In a third confrontation, the amateur journalists asked Turner if he formulated his views during the Bilderberg conference.

“Although it is not clear Turner was endorsing China’s one-child policy of forced abortion, he previously denied Beijing had taken ‘draconian steps’ to control its birthrate during a 2009 interview on the Diane Rehm Show. Instead, he claimed China merely ‘encouraged’ its citizens to have one baby, though he volunteered, ‘I’m not intimately familiar with everything.’ Experts and eyewitnesses were ‘shocked and appalled’ by his comments.”

The obvious question which arises here is this: will Turner lead the way in this and bump off 95 per cent of his own family? If not, why not? Why the blatant hypocrisy and double standards? If one of his daughters is pregnant with a second child, will he force her to abort him or her?

The article continues: “Turner, a dedicated globalist, donated $1 billion to the United Nations, much of which has been used for ‘projects dealing with women and population issues.’ The outspoken atheist told a gathering of Society of Environmental Journalists in 1998 his views were incompatible with Christian doctrine or the Biblical admonition to ‘be fruitful and multiply’.”

But we know that these UN- and US-led population control programs have been disastrous. One simply has to study a detailed volume like Fatal Misconceptions by Columbia University historian Matthew Connelly (Belknap/Harvard University Press, 2008). In over 500 pages of heavily documented analysis, Connelly shows the real nature of the population controllers.

In graphic details he demonstrates how these programs have led to horrific abuses of human rights, and the implementation of eugenicist practices that have ruined millions of lives. Anyone who thinks we should be in the business of population control after reading this book is obviously not very morally attuned.


Or consider the brand new book, Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism by Robert Zubrin (Encounter Books, 2012). The entire volume is excellent, but he has several shocking chapters on the population control movement which are alone worth the price of the book.

In them he offers six solid reasons why the population control campaigns are so harmful. “First, they are top-down dictatorial.” These groups for example speak much of “choice” to Third World women when it comes to childbirth. But, a woman’s right to choose must include the option of having children. Says Zubrin, “rather than providing ‘choice’ to individuals, the purpose of the campaigns is to strip entire populations of their ability to reproduce”.

“Second, the programs are dishonest.” As an example, peasants in the Third World are often “told by government population control personnel that sterilization operations are reversible, when in fact they are not”.

“Third, the programs are coercive.” There are “incentives” which “are frequently employed in the provision or denial of food or cash aid to starving people or their children”. And “disincentives” include “personal harassment, dismissal from employment, destruction of homes, and denial of schooling, public housing, or medical assistance”.

“Fourth, the programs are medically irresponsible and negligent.” More often than not the programs use “defective, unproven, unsafe, experimental, or unapproved gear, including equipment whose use has been banned in the United States”.

That and untrained or poorly trained personnel mean that millions of people’s lives are being put at risk, especially in Africa, “where improper reuse of hypodermic needles without sterilization in population control clinics has contributed to the rapid spread of deadly infectious diseases, including AIDS”.

“Fifth, the programs are cruel, callous, and abusive of human dignity and human rights.” Forced abortions are typical, as is the sterilization of women without their knowledge or consent. All this “is tantamount to government-organized rape”.

“Sixth, the programs are racist.” Invariably these programs are being carried out on non-white Third World nations by primarily white Western nations. And even within nations, one group can be targeted by another group. For example, in India the upper-caste Hindus have used these programs to eliminate lower-caste Muslims and untouchables.

He goes on to offer detailed and gruesome case studies of all this. It makes for some pretty revolting reading. Yet all this is par for the course with the eugenicists and population controllers. And all this is what human-haters like Turner want to see cranked up to a much greater degree.

These people really do not like human beings – at least whole groups of them living in faraway lands. And the really bizarre thing is that they engage in all these anti-human activities in the name of humanitarianism. I just hate to imagine what they would be proposing – and doing – if they didn’t actually like people!

    When it should be in the name of humanism.

  2. “Ted Turner recently told citizen journalists he would like to reduce the world’s population by five billion people,”

    Well Bill, there is nothing like leading from the front, I wonder if he would volunteer to begin the process, or would he feel its best to leave it to the others!

  3. Ted Turner is such hypocrite. He has five children, and more than a few grandchildren… Is he willing to start culling his own progeny, before he turns on us, in order to prove that he is not just another humanist hypocrite? Turner isn’t called “Captain Outrageous” for nothing, you know.

  4. As you would know Bill, Ted Turner isn’t the only one who would like to see a huge reduction in the world’s population.
    To quote some of the others:
    Dave Foreman, the co-founder of Earth First, says that reducing our population down to 100 million is one of his three main goals….
    “My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with its full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”
    Mikhail Gorbachev thinks that reducing the global population by 90 percent would be just about right….
    “We must speak more clearly about sexuality, contraception, about abortion, about values that control population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.”
    David Rockefeller….
    “The negative impact of population growth on all of our planetary ecosystems is becoming appallingly evident.”
    Jacques Cousteau….
    “In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day.”
    Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh….
    “If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.”
    David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club….
    “Childbearing [should be] a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license … All potential parents [should be] required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.”
    Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger….
    “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
    Then we have the Georgia Guidestones, those mysterious stones which just appeared in the State of Georgia, USA. number one of which says,
    “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.”
    Achieving the removal of 6.5 billion people from the earth could hardly happen naturally. What means would be used to bring about this goal? Some have already been mentioned in the quotations above, abortion, contraception, population control, viruses. Others that could be added are euthanasia, encouragement of same-sex marriage and war.

  5. The appalling fact is that certain Christians, including Christian academics, endorse this outlook, albeit eschewing any murderous “culls” of populations. I had to endure listening to one at a conference last year in Sydney, and he had another colleague come in to help promote his cause.
    The distressing thing was that there was no positive appeal to Scripture in his presentation; the only time Scripture was brought into the discussion was in order to explain it away. The real authorities were government statistics and the literature of green groups.

    While erstwhile Christians continue to go along with the so-called “Left” (I call them statists) the worse it will get for us. We have to purge our own ranks by setting standards doctrinal and moral standards, making clear our opposition to the “Left” agenda, and also making clear that in an increasingly politicised climate where almost every moral issue has been politicised Christians cannot support socialist or green parties. I would propose a major conference along this line in similar vein to the Conference on Biblical Inerrancy in the 1970s to enunciate clear guidelines in a looming battle with an all-powerful state: the green state, the nanny state, and pre-eminently the global state.

  7. For so long we have failed to follow all of God’s commands except “be fruitful and multiply.” Now more and more people are trying to break that one too. I suppose it doesn’t make sense to have all but one of the “worldly” achievements on your wall, a full set would look best on the walls in their cells in hell, not that they will have even those achievements to think on at that point.
