Rush Limbaugh, Jonathan Gruber, Eugenics, and Obamacare

I happened to be listening to Rush Limbaugh today and heard him discoursing on the eugenics-laced elements behind putative ‘Obamacare architect’ Jonathan Gruber’s recent remarks, viewable here.

Limbaugh did a better than adequate job analyzing these remarks, but there were a few points that I thought could be better made.  My credentials–I am on the verge of completing my PhD, my dissertation being on the subject of evolution and eugenics.  I founded a policy organization dedicated to detailing how the ‘culture of death’ (ie, eugenics-style thinking) has entrenched itself in unexpected ways in our government.  My organization is the … continue reading...

California Eugenics and the Devil’s Schemes

Originally Posted at the ChristianPost.com:  Eugenics and the Devil’s Schemes in California (and Elsewhere)

In Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians he makes a comment that I have always found intriguing: “… in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.” (2 Cor. 2:11)

I find this interesting, because as it seems to me, Christians continue to be outwitted by their chief Enemy and merrily remain unaware of his schemes. Of course, this applies to non-Christians, but that goes without saying, since they don’t even believe he exists. Christians, the bulk of whom … continue reading...

Strongly Recommended: Maafa 21- Evolution, Eugenics, and Abortion

I recently viewed Life Dynamics’s documentary, Maafa 21.  I wrote a review and posted it to the Christian Post.com.

Here it is:

Maafa 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt that organizations like Planned Parenthood have their origins in eugenics movements which in turn were formed to deal with the ‘problem’ created to society by the end of slavery.  Using primary source material throughout the 2 hour documentary, Maafa 21 details how birth control measures such as abortion and sterilization were originally presented in the context of eliminating ‘undesirables’ from society.  Highest on … continue reading...

Eugenics the Logical Consequence of Evolutionary Theory Part One

About ten days ago I posted an entry arguing that neither secularism or science are value neutral and gave the example of the science book at the center of the Scopes Monkey Trial which- portraying itself as science- advocated for eugenics.  A commentator (by my estimation) missed the point of my post and focused on the implication that evolutionary theory logically necessitates the acceptance of eugenics.  I said at the time, and I say now, that I do not personally believe that this is the case.

Nonetheless, it is an undeniable fact that at the turn of the last century … continue reading...

Chesterton, Eugenics, and a Hatchet No Longer in the Air

From GK Chesterton’s Eugenics and Other Evils, a quote:

The wisest thing in the world is to cry out before you are hurt. It is no good to cry out after you are hurt; especially after you are mortally hurt. People talk about the impatience of the populace; but sound historians know that most tyrannies have been possible because men moved too late. It is often essential to resist a tyranny before it exists. It is no answer to say, with a distant optimism, that the scheme is only in the air. A blow from a hatchet can only continue reading...

Against Compulsory Vaccination

I have spoken on this topic before, most recently re: the coronavirus (here) and more extensively here.  From that latter post, I’d just like to remind the reader of the words of Supreme Court Chief Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes:

“The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the 1927 decision, Buck vs. Bell

Holmes was quite correct.  Now, compulsory sterilization was finally considered to be grotesque, repealed state by state until they were all … continue reading...

The Corona Virus and why I am a “Nationalist.”

It is not politically correct to be a ‘nationalist’ these days, but that’s largely because of the self-serving myths that globalists like to engage in and a general lack of historical knowledge and rational thinking.  The word ‘nationalist’ brings to mind the Nazis, where we are regularly reminded that they were “National Socialists”, emphasizing the first word in the phrase, but never the second.  Like I said, self-serving myths.

However, while the word ‘socialist’ hasn’t changed all that much since the 1930’s, the word ‘nationalist’ has.  In other words, its a logical fallacy called ‘equivocation,’ where the same word has … continue reading...

Reflections on the 2020 March for Life (Trump, Steinem, Hitler, etc)

Last Friday I participated in the March for Life in Washington DC.  This post captures a variety of thoughts and reactions I’ve had since.

The Silent Majority

In some places, the only way that the people can express their views is when they do it in large numbers.  This is typical in third world countries, of course, but the realities that drive that dynamic have revealed themselves more recently in Hong Kong, too.  Very simply, there is a certain safety in numbers.  Governments may very well want to slaughter the opposition, but with the world watching, they have to tread … continue reading...

Quick, Everyone into the Cities or the Planet will Die!

A couple of weeks ago I posted a screed titled “Christians be alert for the “Nudge”; Kian Goh and fighting ‘climate change’ by urbanizing the planet.

I hope no one doubted me, but just in case, here is an article in the ‘reputable’ British rag, The Guardian, that came across my desk.  It is a couple of years old, but illustrates the sort of thinking I was trying to expose.

The presence of such articles in such ‘respectable’ outlets is indicative of a broader, widespread acceptance of these ideas.  I directed my comments to Christians, because of … continue reading...

Christians be alert for the “Nudge”; Kian Goh and fighting ‘climate change’ by urbanizing the planet

In my extensive studies of eugenics, it has been interesting to observe how so many of the old, supposedly repudiated aspects of eugenics, arose again in the 1960s with a new rationale–fighting ‘over-population’–and then emerged yet again in the present day, but now wrapped in the guise of ‘climate change.’  Why, one would almost think that the goals were the same all along!

I have made this point many times over the years, but another point that I’ve made is that things we don’t generally perceive as ‘eugenics’ were, as understood by the eugenicists themselves, part and parcel with ‘eugenics.’  … continue reading...

The Inhumanity of Being Animals

The intended audience of this post is Christians, and anyone else interested in aligning their viewpoints to reality.   I know it is long, but if you’re going to comment, I insist you read it all before you do.

From the transcript of the Scopes Monkey Trial, pg 208:

[Clarence Darrow quizzing one of the students in Scopes’ classroom]

Q — Now, Howard, what do you mean by classify?
A— Well, it means classify these animals we mentioned, that men were just the same as them, in other words—
Q— He didn’t say a cat was the same as a … continue reading...

Compulsory Vaccination – Compulsory Sterlization, Public Health Tyranny

“The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the 1927 decision, Buck vs. Bell

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.

How the Left Went Wrong: Conclusion (1)

This is the end of a five part series on how the left went wrong, and to tell you the truth, I’m glad to be done with it.  Talking about such things wearies me.  However, I felt I had to say these things in order to say other things, and be understood when I do so.

My ‘study’ of the ‘left’ was accidental.  Up until about 2007, I was happy to devote my time to reading, researching, and writing, relating to the veracity of Christianity.  Then, my (liberal) doctor suggested we kill our daughter, diagnosed with spina bifida, whilst in … continue reading...

What Went Wrong With the Left? Part 5, the Intersectionals

In part 4 of this series, I discussed the post-WWII turn embrace of The Managed State.  This was a logical outgrowth of the progressive ideology of c. 1910, heavily colored by two world wars and a great depression. It was largely chastened liberals, but there were plenty of old blood Republicans in there as well.   Regardless of party, they were basically Statists, and so had more in common with each other than they did the millions of people they believed they were called to ‘manage.’

I did not dwell on the mechanisms of that management too much, and I won’t … continue reading...
