Software billionaire Bill Gates, who previously has advocated the reduction of the human population through the use of vaccines, and his wife Melinda marked the 100th year since the First International Eugenics Congress in London with a “family planning” summit with abortionists and the United Nations.
The July 11 event, co-hosted by the United Kingdom Department for International Development, included organizations such as Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes International and the U.N. Populations Fund, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Critics pointed out the summit was held 100 years after the July 1912 eugenics conference led by Leonard Darwin, the son of Charles Darwin, and dedicated to Darwin’s half-cousin Francis Galton.
Galton invented the term eugenics to promote the idea that strategic breeding would improve mankind.
According to Christian Voice, a ministry that analyzes current events and acts on Scriptural instructions for “a better way, God’s way,” the 1912 event promoted the “notion that economics can be improved by decreasing the surplus population,” based on the theories of Thomas Malthus.
The 17th century luminary suggested that the poor were “draining the world’s resources,” and a solution would be “to introduce policies specifically designed to bring death to large numbers of peasants.”
“So what exactly is the relation between contraception and economic growth? The connection is simple: fewer people = more resources.”
Interesting…. high concentrations of people lead to economic activity, which draws in more people. It’s been pointed out that poor regions tend to lose population. Are those left behind in such areas any less poor as a result? No. Usually the opposite is true.
Well I tend to agree with him.
Who “needs to be less” of is something we don’t agree eye to eye
