FTR #909 A Different Kind of Tea Party: More about Fascism and the New Age

The Urantia Book appears to have heavily influenced the founders of the Celestial Seasonings herbal tea company. Of greater significance is the fact that the formidable tome is an important element in the New Age firmament and espouses a deeply racist philosophy. ” . . . The book touches upon every­thing from mind con­trol to a eugen­ics plot to elim­i­nate the ‘infe­rior races’ of our great nation. . . . The Urantia Book, a 4.3-pound, 2,097-page tome, pub­lished first in 1955, is a mod­i­fied Seventh-Day Adven­tist text sup­pos­edly com­mu­ni­cated to an anony­mous man in a trance by aliens. . . . ”

Contending that the human race evolved from fair-skinned, blue-eyed space aleiens, the Urantia Book manifests a sinister philosophy: ” . . . . On every planet through­out every uni­verse, fair-skinned, blue-eyed aliens named Adam and Eve appear to ‘upstep’ the natives. When their prog­eny mate with the accept­able inhab­i­tants of the planet, the ‘infe­rior stocks will be elim­i­nated and there will be one puri­fied race, one lan­guage, and one reli­gion,’ as Gard­ner explains it in Uran­tia: The Great Cult Mystery. But before that can hap­pen, Paper 51 of The Uran­tia Book says, ‘the infe­rior and unfit are largely elim­i­nated… it seems that you ought to be able to agree upon the bio­logic dis­fel­low­ship­ing of your more markedly unfit, defec­tive, degen­er­ate, and anti­so­cial stocks.’ . . .”

Compare this with Hitler’s philosophy, as expressed in “Mein Kampf”: “The demand that defec­tive peo­ple be pre­vented from prop­a­gat­ing equally defec­tive off­spring rep­re­sents the most human act of mankind.”

It should come as no surprise that the Urantia Book does not come from “outer space”, but appears to have originated with a well-connected eugenicist named William Sadler. ” . . . . While Hitler didn’t have any­thing to do with writ­ing The Uran­tia Book, William Sadler did.

One of the most well-known psy­chi­a­trists of his era, Sadler got his start work­ing for Dr. John H. Kel­logg at the famous Bat­tle Creek San­i­tar­ium, which treated celebri­ties like the Rock­e­fellers, Mont­gomery Ward and even Thomas Edi­son. Kel­logg was a noto­ri­ous eugeni­cist and founded the Race Bet­ter­ment Foun­da­tion, whose goals were ‘to call atten­tion to the dan­gers which threaten the race.’ Influ­enced by Kellogg’s ideas, Sadler pub­lished three eugeni­cist books: “Long Heads and Round Heads; or, What’s the Mat­ter With Ger­many (1918)”, “Racial Deca­dence: An Exam­i­na­tion of the Causes of Racial Degen­er­a­tion in the United States” (1922) and “The Truth About Hered­ity” (1927). The Uran­tia Book echoes the ideas pre­sented in these books, and in some cases, it repro­duces the text word for word. . . .”

The Urantia Fellowship continues to manifest the eugenics philosophy of the text, counting Kermit Anderson–the director of genetic screening at Kaiser Permanente among its adherents!


FTR #908 Easy “E’s”: Eugenics, Euthanasia and Extermination (A Message from the Past to the Future)

With technological advances leading some analysts to conclude that the future will feature a largely “employment-free” world, the concept of a “universal basic income” has taken hold in some circles. Concluding that all people will be given a “workable” sum with which to live, adherents of the concept envision a quasi-utopian world. We fear the development of something far more dystopic.

With the continued popularity of the austerity agenda, despite strong evidence that it is counter-productive, we fear that a largely “employment-free” environment will lead to the elimination of human beings seen as “superfluous.” With physician-assisted suicide legislation gaining in many places, at the same time as the austerity agenda continues to be popular in elite economic and social planning circles, we should be on the alert for lethal, and altogether “final” solutions to the problem of large numbers of economically displaced people. The Third Reich’s extermination programs have been popularly viewed as aberration, an occurrence that was separate from “normal” political and historical events. This is not the case.

Murderous Nazi racial and social policy were the outgrowth of mainstream intellectual trends that are very much with us today. At the epicenter of the intellectual nexus underpinning the Nazi extermination programs are the overlapping international eugenics and international hygiene movements.

Program Highlights Include: The role of the Nazi euthanasia programs in training the hardened killers used at the extermination centers; the role of the Rockefeller Foundation in funding the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute’s eugenics programs; the role of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in the genesis of the Nazi T-4 euthanasia program and the subsequent extermination programs of the Third Reich; the extensive official secrecy that shrouded the euthanasia programs from public view.


FTR #867 Because They Can, Part 3: Fireside Rant about Technocratic Fascism as “Cyber-Crowleyism”

Continuing discussion from FTR #866, we develop various manifestations of libertarian, technocratic fascism. Celebrated by Silicon Valley executives and elevated to power (in part), by EBay chief Pierre Omidyar, Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist/fascist government has been suppressing free speech, lauding Mahatma Gandhi’s killer as a patriot, murdering critics and turning a blind eye to lethal mob violence directed against Muslims for allegedly slaughtering cows. Capitalizing on Snowden’s activities, the very financial institutions that precipitated the 2008 financial collapse are employing a secure, end-to-end encryption messaging system that will enable them to evade regulatory scrutiny. The laissez-faire, corporatist economic philosophy embraced by Modi is at one with the values of Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, the Tea Party and the GOP as a whole, the advocates of Bitcoin, and the pirates of Wall Street. Program Highlights Include: a comparison of the social philosophies of Assange and Snowden with those of the SS; review of Modi’s move to undermine India’s child labor laws; review of the frightening possibilities of “smart contracts;” review of Bitcoin as “cyber-offshoring.”


FTR #838 Interview (#1) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

The first of several interviews with Peter Levenda about his important new book “The Hitler Legacy,” this program highlights the evolution of elements which figure into the development of the post-war Nazi underground. At the end of the First World War, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and abortive Marxist uprisings in Germany and elsewhere in Europe infused the power elite in the U.S. with a paranoid ideological terror of a global “Jewish-Marxist” conspiracy. Combined with fear of Catholic and Jewish immigrants and their effect on American society, this ideological paranoia fused with a social Darwinism that found its expression in eugenics–a pseudo-intellectual doctrine that sought the promotion of “desirable” social and ethnic types and the suppression and/or elimination of “inferior” racial types. Seeing Germany as the point element in the struggle against world Marxism, individuals and political parties sought to ally with German fascists to bring fascism to the U.S. This fascist Fifth Column included political groups ranging from the Ku Klux Klan to the Silver Shirts of William Dudley Pelley, as well as the prototypical right-wing talk show host Father Charles Coughlin, “the Radio Priest.” Coughlin’s efforts were subsidized by Third Reich intelligence. Financed by financiers and industrialists who supported fascism, this Fifth Column attempted to kill and/or overthrow FDR on several occasions. In the Middle East, the concept of global jihad was developed by German archaelogist Max von Oppenheim during the First World War. Envisioning the world’s Muslims as proxy warriors against the Entente Powers of Britain, France and Russia, von Oppenheim created the template for contemporary Islamic fascism and jihadism. Following the division of the former Ottoman Empire by Britain and France after World War I, the “Arab Street” began manifesting belief in an international global conspiracy involving Jews and the European colonial powers that resonated with the American power elite’s idological anxieties.


FTR #831 The Elderly “Wouldn’t Be Fucking Help­less if You Weren’t Send­ing them Fucking Checks to Sit on their Ass and Lay in Hos­pi­tals all Day”: The GOP’s Assault on Social Security

The title of the program is a verbatim quote from Edward Snowden–the Peach Fuzz Fascist–in 2009. The GOP-controlled 114th Congress is attempting to implement Snowden’s views. In addition to highlighting Snowden’s ultra-reactionary views about abolishing Social Security and restoring the gold standard, the broadcast sets forth the GOP’s disingenuous statements about the Social Security disability program, exemplified by Rand Paul’s bald-faced lies about the nature of the program. After chronicling the GOP’s 80-year war on Social Security, going back to the early days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s first term, the broadcast reviews the 1934 coup attempt by powerful, fascist industrial and financial interests. Those same plotters supported Mussolini’s “corporate state” and Hitler’s eugenics program, aimed at eliminating “useless bread gobblers.” Like Snowden, the 1934 coup plotters wanted to eliminate Social Security and restore the gold standard.


“Hurry Up and Die”: Taro Aso’s Pro-Eugenics Philosophy

In FTR #813, we noted the unabashedly pro-Hitler political philosophy of Japanese Minister Taro Aso, as well as similar views from other currently-serving Japanese officials. Aso is not shy about expressing his pro-eugenics philosophy as well, urging the elderly to “Hurry Up and Die.” In a Japanese manifestation of the Lebensporn concept, Aso is urging young people to have as many children as possible.

FTR #799 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

The future of health care in societies subjected to the doctrine of “Austeria” may be seen with the appointment of doctrinaire neo-Nazi Makis “The Hammer” Voridis as Health Minister of Greece. Fascism is surging in a Europe subjected to German-mandated austerity, as evidenced by the recent EU Parliamentary elections. Much of the program highlights fascism marching under the deceptive banner of “freedom” and/or libertarianism. Bitcoin continues its march toward monopoly, with the mysterious Ghash.io controlling 51% of the market. Gun-wielding fascists supportive of “libertarian” (read “white-supremacist”) Ron Paul gunned down police in Las Vegas, while so called “sovereign citizens” shot up police in California. “Cliven Bundists” (supporters of Cliven Bundy) have declared themselves exempt from Bureau of Land Management regulations in Nevada, as the GOP ramps up another government shutdown to foil Obama’s climate change legislation. At the same time, the very high-tech giants that complained so loudly about Obama’s failure to protect individual privacy are surging ahead with programs and technology to obliterate that very consideration.


Update on “Clausewitzian Health Care”: A Nazi Heads Greek Health Ministry (EUthanasia)

With the country’s poverty-driven health care approximating a lethal, slow-motion eugenics program, Greece’s “Clausewitzian Economics” figures to accelerate with the appointment of Makis Voridis, a doctrinaire Nazi, to administer the Greek Health Ministry. As the German-dominated EMU and EU “bring the hammer down” on the European economy and citizenry, it is grimly fascinating to watch this hands-on application of Von Clausewitz’s theoretical principles.


Edward Snowden, Unplugged: The Elderly “Wouldn’t be Fucking Helpless If You Weren’t Sending Them Fucking Checks to Sit on their Ass and Lay in Hospitals all Day”

Excerpting some of Snowden’s 2009 online musings–crafted during the same time period in which he decided to leak NSA documents–gives us insight into his true nature. We’ve mentioned Snowden’s embrace of the gold standard, belief that we should eliminate Social Security and deep affinity for Ron Paul. Perhaps examining his actual pronouncements will prove educational. Snowden [at right] is a nasty little fascist. People should carefully consider the rest of his behavior in the context of his ideological statements.


The Underground Reich and the Max Planck Institute

We have discussed the Max Planck institute in past posts and programs. Originally named the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, it was a major epicenter of Nazi science. In the 1950 Madrid circular letter crafted by the Nazi government in exile, we find reinforcing argument that the Max Planck Institute remained an epicenter for scientific and technological development for the Underground Reich.
