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 #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.


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.


“Clausewitzian” Health Care: Austeritywitz in Greece

We con­tin­ue our cov­er­age of the real­i­ty of “aus­ter­i­ty” in Greece, man­dat­ed by the Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed EU. With Ger­man banks hav­ing pre­cip­i­tat­ed the Euro­zone cri­sis, the post­script is clas­sic “war by oth­er means,” as pre­scribed by Pruss­ian mil­i­tary the­o­reti­cian Carl von Clause­witz. The Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed Troi­ka installed the fas­cist LAOS par­ty in Greece, with no input from the cit­i­zens of that country–the cra­dle of democ­ra­cy. Hav­ing assumed con­trol of Greece’s health care sys­tem, Ger­man prof­it-dri­ven insti­tu­tions are insti­tut­ing dra­con­ian mea­sures, result­ing in–among oth­er things–A 40% INCREASE IN INFANT MORTALITY!


Austerity, Up Close and Personal, Part 2 “Austeritywitz”: German Elderly Being “Shipped to the East”

An aspect of Ger­many’s “aus­ter­i­ty” dik­tat that has escaped notice and dis­cus­sion con­cerns what Deutsch­land is doing with its poor, elder­ly peo­ple. Because of the expens­es involved in car­ing for the these “unde­sir­ables,” they are being shipped “to the East.” We have seen this from Ger­many before. The unini­ti­at­ed might be inclined to dis­miss this as being of lit­tle sig­nif­i­cance. After all, they aren’t being killed, as they were under the Third Reich. Not yet, they aren’t. On the oth­er hand, IF they were, who would report it? And with “aus­ter­i­ty” the order of the day for the Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed EU, what will hap­pen as the “expense” of deal­ing with the infirm increas­es?


“Austerity” Equals Fascism, Part I: The Republicans are Nazis

Descend­ed from political/economic inter­ests that sup­port­ed Hitler, tried to over­throw Franklin Roo­sevelt and did kill JFK, the GOP man­i­fests the her­itage of decades of covert oper­a­tions that brought Third Reich vet­er­ans into the Amer­i­can polit­i­cal main­stream. The upcom­ing elec­tion may deter­mine the fate of our civ­i­liza­tion.


Fighting for the Wrong Right: Your Right to Die

Health care reform approach­ing the “Final Solu­tion” to the high cost of health care? In Nazi Ger­many it meant “Kill ’em, don’t bill ’em.” The same influ­ences inform our social think­ing on the issue.
