You're nothing like a "conspiracy nutjob". Your viewpoints are much too mainstream.

What's happening is that actually the elites have already been colluding for years to deliberately crash the system in order to make World War III possible.

Another part of this is the fact that public education has been training people about the "benefits" of war in "improving" economies. This aspect of public education is criminal and insane.

The only way war can possibly be considered is if one has or has been given an ancient, primitive, Social Darwinist, elitist and anti-human belief system. Which, unfortunately, the greater percentage of recent generations has been indoctrinated into.

In this belief system, the "health" of an "economy" is related to its "profitability" and completely divorced from the health of its citizens or physical environment and resources. In this belief system, most human life, especially those of the lower castes which comprise most of the earth's population, is worth very little.

The elite view their role to be that of the ecological protectors of the earth from the encroachment of the over-multiplied ever-growing masses of peasants.

> In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.

-- Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

> “Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

> “Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems. No such sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: it must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock.”

>“The Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries’ shares within their regional limits. Control of population size might remain the responsibility of each government, but the Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits.”

This unscientific belief that the earth is overpopulated has been firmly planted through "education" in the minds of the public. Just to clarify, it is only by intense suppression of deployment of technology and relevant knowledge concerning energy, food production and systems that the public can be misled about the reality, which is that the carrying capacity of a truly scientifically and technologically-integrated earth is many times more than the current population.

War achieves two aims of the elites: killing off "excess" humans and reaping greater profits than any other type of industry.

>War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

>I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents. -- U.S. Marine Major General Smedley D. Butler

To touch on just how far from the truth the beliefs about overpopulation are, look at the potential for increasing energy production. Numerous sources have suggested that energy needs could be met with solar power alone. Google has reported that geothermal energy production in the US could be increased by 1000 times or more:

>The project estimates that “technical potential” for the continental U.S. exceeds 2,980,295 megawatts using EGS and other advanced geothermal technologies such as low temperature hydrothermal, according to Google.org. To put that into perspective, currently there is 9,000 MW of traditional geothermal generating capacity installed in 24 countries around the world. The United States, the world’s largest geothermal energy producer, has about 2,800 MW of installed capacity, which generates enough electricity to power roughly 2.8 million homes.

The only way for the mass killings and insane profiteering to go on as planned is for this perverted and ignorant belief system to continue in the general population. Unfortunately, belief systems have a core tendency to resist alteration. Given the strength of the belief in the myths about overpopulation, the devaluation of human life, the indoctrination into the relevance of "economic" theories completely removed from human or physical measurements, the massive build-up of deployment of US and allied military power in the vicinity of the Middle East, the next great war is likely to occur soon (and is considered by some to be in the early stages now).

I mean, I really don't want to be a bummer or anything, but someone has to say this stuff since the future of humanity is directly related to our ability to perceive the realities of our world.

There's a lovely book that details all this stuff, it's all apart of a greater plan, It's a old goodie, but it's called ECOSCIENCE: Population, Resources, Enviorment by Paul R. Ehrlich

https://www.amazon.com/Ecoscience-Population-Environment-Paul-Ehrlich/dp/0716700298

https://archive.org/details/Ecoscience_17

It's all apart of population control.

Dr. Propaganda artist and eco-fascist more like it. Check out this 5 star review from Amazon!:

"Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A "Planetary Regime" with the power of life and death over American citizens.

The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both?

These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology -- informally known as the United States' Science Czar. In this book Holdren co-authored in 1977, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote that:

  • Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;

  • The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food;

  • Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;

  • People who "contribute to social deterioration" (i.e. undesirables) "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" -- in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.

  • A transnational "Planetary Regime" should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans' lives -- using an armed international police force.

    Impossible, you say? That must be an exaggeration or a hoax. No one in their right mind would say such things. [...] "

There are actually several instances of similar claims, and the document in question is a published textbook:

http://www.amazon.com/Ecoscience-Population-Environment-Paul-Ehrlich/dp/0716700298

I'm not going to shell out 400 dollars for a copy, but you can feel free to.

u/fuckyoua · 1 pointr/politics

It's not a conspiracy the Science Czar John P Holdren wrote a book in 1977 about spraying the air with chemicals and blocking out the sun called Ecoscience. They call it Geo-engineering. It's no conspiracy. Here's the whole book for you to read. Click the PDF link on the left hand side and you can d/l the whole book. You think it's just a coincidence he is the science czar? He talks about forced abortions and spraying the air and the drinking water with chemicals to sterilize people. It's no joke and no crazy conspiracy. He wrote this shit and published it. Here's the book for sale on amazon.com if you think I'm making this up.

Well you should read Eco-Science co written by John P Holdren who is the current Science advisor of the White House.

Read the reviews. They accurately portray what is in the book which calls for....

Forced sterilisation administered by the water supply and food,

A Planetary regime to enforce abortion and population control via a transnational armed force,

And forced abortions amongst other scary things.

This is an absolutely chilling read and the guy is a Eugenicist without a doubt. Population numbers may be a problem but the methods outlined to reduce numbers is crazy.
