[color=gold]You ll be De-Populated and You ll Like It!
istory of US and World depopulation plans and achievements. Is this pie-in-the-sky stuff, fictional? Nope 'fraid not - I wish
it was but the facts speak for themselves.
This is from National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) - April 1974, HENRY A. KISSINGER, it spells out a well hatched and methodical approach
to the US plans for de-population. Here is a quick summary, for the complete paper see the link below.
[color=gold]I. Introduction - A U.S. Global Population Strategy
A. Basic Global Strategy
The following basic elements are necessary parts of a comprehensive approach to the population problem which must include both bilateral and
to achieve success. Thus, USG population assistance programs will need to be coordinated
with those of the major
multilateral institutions, voluntary organizations, and other bilateral donors.
According to NSSM-200, elements of the implementation of population control programs could include: a) the legalization of abortion; b) financial
incentives for countries to increase their abortion, sterilization and contraception-use rates; c) indoctrination of children; and d) mandatory
population control, and coercion of other forms, such as withholding disaster and food aid unless an LDC implements population control
The common strategy for dealing with rapid population growth should encourage constructive actions to lower fertility
since population growth
over the years will seriously negate reasonable prospects for the sound social and economic development of the peoples involved.
• While the time horizon in this NSSM is the year 2000..
• ...Primary emphasis would be placed on the largest and fastest growing developing countries where the imbalance between growing numbers and
development potential most seriously risks instability, unrest, and international tensions. These countries are: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan,
Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, The Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia, and Colombia
... These countries should be given the
highest priority within [color=gold]AIDs
population program in terms of resource allocations and/or leadership efforts to encourage
action by other donors and organizations.
• However, other countries would not be ignored. [color=gold]AID
would provide population assistance and/or undertake leadership
efforts with respect to other, lower priority countries to the extent that...
• U.N. "Medium Variant": If present birth rates in the developing countries
, averaging about 38/1000 were further reduced to 29/1000
by 2000, the world's population in 2000 would be 6.4 billion, with over 100 million being added each year. At the time stability (non-growth) is
reached in about 2100, world population would exceed 12.0 billion. ((NOTE: Guess where we're at in 2008
? 6,662,648,908, which is 'better'
than this study projected and hoped for by about 500,000,000 people, or six years worth of population gain for the world))
. Assessment of future demographic trends in Africa is severely impeded by lack of reliable base data on the size, composition,
fertility and mortality, and migration of much of the continent's population. With this important limitation in mind, the population of Africa is
projected to increase from 352 million in 1970 to 834 million in 2000, an increase of almost 2.5 times. ((NOTE: Guess where Africa is at in
? 875,000,000, which is 'better' than this study projected and hoped for by about 125,000,000 people, or seven years worth of population
gain for the continent))
• In most African
countries, population growth rates are likely to increase appreciably before they begin to decline. Rapid population
expansion may be particularly burdensome to the "least developed" among Africa's LDCs including -- according to the U.N. classification --
Ethiopia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Upper Volta, Mali, Malawi, Niger, Burundi, Guinea, Chad, Rwanda, Somalia, Dahomey, Lesotho, and Botswana. As a
group, they numbered 104 million in 1970 and are projected to grow at an average rate of 3.0 percent a year
, to some 250 million in 2000.
It seems that Africa
as the main 'target' made sense. The population projection figures from 1974 to the future (2000 in this study and
beyond) were the worlds largest and thus where the greatest benefit could be attained from de-population schemes. It looks like the plan was
successful in keeping the population down to planned levels and actually exceeded the estimates by large margins.
• "Control of population growth and migration must be a part of any program for improvement of lasting value." [Page 81]
• "...the Conference adopted by acclamation (only the Holy See stating a general reservation) a complete World Population Plan of Action" [Page
• Abortion is vital to the solution:
» " -- No country has reduced its population growth without resorting to abortion". [Page 182]
» " -- Indeed, abortion, legal and illegal, now has become the most widespread fertility control method in use in the world today." [Page 183]
» " -- It would be unwise to restrict abortion research for the following reasons: 1) The persistent and ubiquitous nature of abortion. 2)
Widespread lack of safe abortion techniques..." [Page 185]
Amazingly, NSSM-200 also specifically declared that the [color=gold]United States was to cover up its population control activities
avoid charges of imperialism by inducing the United Nations and various non-governmental organizations to do its dirty work.
