According to greenies and environmentalists…
Don’t get me wrong. I am all for responsible conservation of the earth. But since when are human beings the moral equivalent of animals? So we have to protect various animal species but we need to “control” the human population.
“We need to continue to decrease the growth rate of the global population; the planet can’t support many more people,” Dr Fedoroff said, stressing the need for humans to become much better at managing “wild lands”, and in particular water supplies.
Pressed on whether she thought the world population was simply too high, Dr Fedoroff replied: “There are probably already too many people on the planet.”
Dr. Fedoroff is the science & technology advisor to the Sect of State (since 2007-hello? Condoleezza).
There it is. Falls right in line with the Eugenics movement. The same “philosophy” that says some human beings are more valuable than others, allows you to determine a finite number of allowable human beings for the earth. Hitler wasn’t wrong I guess. We need to determine the best line of genes (as you would breeding a dog), nurture it and limit the undesirables.
