Recently, a long-time population control advocate was invited to speak at a Vatican event, angering many Catholics who are pro-life. Meet Paul Ehrlich: he spoke with the Population Council at a Vatican event titled the “Workshop on Biological Extinction.”
According to LSN:
“The Vatican has invited the infamous Population Council to a conference in February.
Along with “overpopulation catastrophe prophet” Paul R. Ehrlich, the Population Council will be represented at the “Biological Extinction” workshop from February 27 through March 1. The event is organized by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences.
Professor John Bongaarts, vice president of the Population Council, is listed in the conference pamphlet as giving a speech titled “Population: Current State and Future Prospects.”
The Population Council unabashedly promotes a global reduction in births and for a wide distribution of artificial contraceptives.”
Paul Ehrlich is a prime example of a population control advocate in academia: a modern day eugenicist.
Today he is a professor at Stanford, after spending decades making predictions about uncontrolled population growth that never came true. His extreme predictions and advocacy for forced abortion and sterilization was said to have influenced law from the US to China.
Ehrlich is Professor of Population Studies of the Department of Biology at Stanford University, and president of Stanford’s Center for Conservation Biology.
Like Professor Malcolm Potts at Berkeley, he has been involved with Malthusian fear mongering about overpopulation while advocating for coercive population control for over half a century.
According to Wikipedia: “Ehrlich became well known for his controversial 1968 book The Population Bomb, which asserted that the world’s human population would soon increase to the point where mass starvation ensued. Among the solutions he suggested in that book was population control, to be used in his opinion if voluntary methods were to fail.”
Today he continues pushing the same fear, now calling it the “Population Bomb.”
Despite his predictions failing, he is constantly being awarded. Speaking at an event like this isn’t abnormal for him.
He was awarded Fellow of the Royal Society, membership to a several century old “science” society created by the British Monarchy. It’s an award that has historically been endowed upon other advocates of population control, such as Charles Darwin, whose cousin Francis Galton of course created the term “eugenics.”
This is just one expression of support for population control put forth by the British power structure out of many. The Royal Society is a window into the world of hegemony-supporting-science. According to Wikipedia, the Fellow of the Royal Society award is:
“Fellowship of the Royal Society is an award and fellowship granted by the Royal Society of London to individuals the society judges to have made a “substantial contribution to the improvement of natural knowledge, including mathematics, engineering science and medical science”.
Isaac Newton was one of the earliest Fellows of the Royal Society, elected in 1672 Fellowship of the Society, the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence, is a significant honour which has been awarded to many eminent scientists from history including Isaac Newton (1672), Charles Darwin (1839), Michael Faraday (1824), Ernest Rutherford (1903), Srinivasa Ramanujan (1919), Albert Einstein (1921), Winston Churchill (1941).”
This goes to show how American Ivy League institutions, the British Monarchy, and the Vatican are all kind of on the same page about population control.
They have all historically been tied to controlling populations, to power: and subduing, stealing the freedom of, and even killing the poor are historically a compulsion of power. A compulsion toward attempting “population control” is almost an eventuality under any power structure or regime. It’s the way power behaves.
Despite the Catholic Church’s past disapproval of abortion, the only thing holding them back from supporting population control of whatever kind is the stance their followers have been used to for years. Catholics are used to being pro-life.
In the 1920’s, another eugenics espousing professor could be found at Berkeley (and that’s just one particularly obscene example out of many population control advocates to come from Berkeley). His name was Samuel Jackson Holmes.
A far more influential California eugenicist was involved with the creation of Paul Ehrlich’s school itself: David Starr Jordan, first president of Stanford University.
David Starr Jordan was one of the most influential advocates for forced sterilization and eugenics in the 20th Century, and he was the very person who created the template of a “major” or a “minor” to study in college. He strongly influenced the coercive sterilization of over 60,000 people in California, mostly poor women.
William Lowe Brian was the co-founder of the “major/minor” studying template with Jordan, and Brian was one of the original organizers of the American Psychological Association, who is now known to be involved with CIA torture and big pharma.
While Paul follows in David Starr Jordan’s population control advocating footsteps at Stanford, Palo Alto, CA residents are trying to change the name of schools named after Jordan because of his involvement with coercive sterilization. Schools are named after David Starr Jordan from Northern California to Los Angeles.
According to Stanford themselves:
“Lars Johnsson, who has three children attending schools in the district, has been a particularly outspoken advocate of renaming and has started an online petition on Change.org that has garnered over 400 supporters.
“David Starr Jordan and Lewis Madison Terman do not represent the values of 21st-century Palo Alto and the mission of its Unified School District,” Johnsson wrote in the petition.”
Unfortunately, Stanford seems to indeed represent the same values they did when David Starr Jordan was their first president.
This is a hidden, critical to understand piece of what we call “the system”: the Ivy League institutions, those prestigious colleges we were taught to love that birth the individuals who become part of the power structure.
These are the social engineers who decide how the herd of humanity will be influenced, and they want to control how we procreate and how much freedom we are allowed to have.
Ten years after writing The Population Bomb, Paul co-authored a book with John Holdren, the man who would become President Obama’s Science Czar: the 1977 book Ecoscience.
Videos like this were made in response to John Holdren’s appointment.
Quotes from the book were well chosen by the website Zombie Time. As they summarized, the book suggests that in the future:
• Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not
• The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food
• Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise
• People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables) “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” — in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized
• A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force
This is exactly what the book says.
Page 837: Compulsory abortions would be legal “if a population crisis became severe”
“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.”
Page 786: Single mothers should have their babies taken away by the government; or they could be forced to have abortions
“One way to carry out this disapproval might be to insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for adoption—especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of caring properly for a child alone. If a single mother really wished to keep her baby, she might be obliged to go through adoption proceedings and demonstrate her ability to support and care for it. Adoption proceedings probably should remain more difficult for single people than for married couples, in recognition of the relative difficulty of raising children alone. It would even be possible to require pregnant single women to marry or have abortions, perhaps as an alternative to placement for adoption, depending on the society.”
Page 787-8: Mass sterilization of humans though drugs in the water supply is OK as long as it doesn’t harm livestock
“Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems. No such sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: it must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock.”
Page 786-7: The government could control women’s reproduction by either sterilizing them or implanting mandatory long-term birth control
“Involuntary fertility control … A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men. … The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.”
Page 838: The kind of people who cause “social deterioration” can be compelled to not have children
“If some individuals contribute to general social deterioration by overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility—just as they can be required to exercise responsibility in their resource-consumption patterns—providing they are not denied equal protection.”
Page 838: Nothing is wrong or illegal about the government dictating family size
“In today’s world, however, the number of children in a family is a matter of profound public concern. The law regulates other highly personal matters. For example, no one may lawfully have more than one spouse at a time. Why should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children?”
So what does all of this mean?
If you’ve ever had the intuition that our class of people is being farmed, that we are enslaved, or that we are being manipulated and molded into a certain form on a daily basis through education, media, chemicals in our food and water, psychiatric drugs, and more, this is the type of info that confirms it.
This is a layer of exactly who created the fabric of our society, who constructed the iron bars in our collective cage, and this article is work to identify exactly who is influencing the erosion of our freedom.
Maybe no high level person is concerned with Paul’s incorrect predictions because they all understood “uncontrollable population growth” isn’t a real danger with the factor of human ingenuity: that it was just a lie to justify reducing the population.
Maybe they understand their class of people ruling over us is the scourge on the Earth, and that specific corporations and people damage the environment, not the bottom class forced to dwell in the world created by the wealthy.
Average poor people do not form corporations for fracking. They do not pollute Ecuador with oil, or spill oil in the Gulf of Mexico: specific entities and people are responsible for this, and they are not even in our class of people.
Perhaps being outnumbered by a giant class of people with the potential to usurp them of their power has always been the driving force behind eugenicists.
This dynamic of slavery between the wealthy class and our “bottom class” is nothing new. However, we can identify the exact individuals and institutions responsible for eroding our freedom and creating a paradigm where the state controls every aspect of our lives. We can identify who influenced human slavery in the past, from the academic institutions to government to the police enforcing laws, and we can identify exactly who is steering us in this direction now.
Paul Ehrlich, Malcolm Potts, John Holdren and other renowned people want our right to bear children stripped from us. They aren’t hiding: they just think we are too docile and stupid to find out who they are.
3 Reasons Why Introverts Are Undervalued in Today’s Society
It’s undeniable that our society favors assertive extroverted personalities with strong communication skills and underestimates the quiet ones. If you are an introvert, you have probably learned it the hard way.
It could be that you felt unseen in the classroom as a child or teen. Or you may have watched your less competent co-workers get a promotion thanks to their social skills.
It feels unfair, but if you think about our society, it makes perfect sense. The consumerist mindset that has become our second nature inevitably affects the way we treat other people. It seems that everything, including our personal qualities and worth as human beings, is translated into some kind of market value.
In other words, to make other people see your worth in personal or professional life, you need to be able to ‘sell yourself’. Yes, this expression alone tells it all.
You need to know how to make a good first impression, say the right things, and be assertive. If you can’t do it, you are perceived as incapable and uninteresting – whether we are talking about a job interview or an informal social gathering.
But it’s not the only reason why introverts are undervalued in our society. Here are a few more:
1. They are less efficient in teamwork
Communication and teamwork skills are required for all kinds of jobs. It seems that without being able to work in a team, it’s impossible to do your job even if your duties don’t involve interaction with clients.
Introverts are much more efficient when they work on their own and are given a certain extent of independence. They thrive in quiet environments with few distractions and interactions. This is when a quiet person gets the chance to unleash their creative self and make good use of their analytical skills.
Most office jobs don’t give employees this opportunity. Office meetings, group projects, phone calls and all the other attributes of a 9-to-5 job make it almost impossible for an introvert to be productive.
2. They don’t like to be in the spotlight
Sometimes it feels like we are living in a society of attention seekers. Today, you are expected to go public about the most personal matters, such as your relationship and family life.
People share their most intimate thoughts and feelings on social media, post updates about the most trivial events, such as what they had for dinner, and upload countless selfies.
Introverts are among those who still value privacy. They are less likely to showcase their lives online or share the details of their personal affairs with the whole world.
At the same time, the quiet ones don’t like to be in the spotlight at social events. An introvert will never interrupt you. They will listen to you and talk only when they have something important to say. This tendency to avoid attention can be mistaken for insecurity and even a lack of intelligence.
3. They prefer to be real than to be ‘nice’
If you want to make a good impression on others, you are expected to be nice. But what does it mean to be ‘nice’ anyway?
In an introvert’s mind, it equals saying things you don’t mean. Quiet personalities will never bombard you with compliments or say meaningless social pleasantries just to win your fondness. But if an introvert said something nice to you, then be sure that they truly meant it.
Small talk is another component of social relationships most introverts struggle with. To them, it embodies utterly dull, uncomfortable, and pointless conversations they can perfectly do without. For this reason, introverts are often mistakenly believed to hate people.
The truth is that they don’t – they just crave stimulating, meaningful conversations and choose their social circle more carefully than extroverts.
In my book, The Power of Misfits: How to Find Your Place in a World You Don’t Fit In, I write about the reasons why so many introverts feel inadequate and alienated from other people in today’s society. It all goes down to social expectations this personality type has to deal with from a very early age.
But the good news is that every introvert can overcome the negative effects of these expectations and find the right path in this loud, extroverted world.
The Esoteric Meaning Behind Neo’s Interrogation Scene in The Matrix
More than 20 years old now, The Matrix is recognized by fans across the world as being one of the most brilliant films in history, most notably for its deeper meaning and esoteric philosophy.
One scene that is particularly intriguing, considering the social climate of today, is Neo’s interrogation by the Agents of the Matrix.
Now, before we dig into the potential hidden meaning here, as I perceive it, and how Neo found himself in this uncomfortable position to begin with, let’s first establish some key points in relation to the overall story line that will help us to appreciate the implications behind this scene a little bit more.
What Does The Character Neo Represent in the Matrix?
Neo in ancient Greek (νέος) means new/young one. This is an important piece of the puzzle to help us understand what the directors of the film are trying to communicate to us. With that said, when we assess Neo’s character in the first film, we find that he is a solitary individual that keeps to himself and is struggling to find deeper meaning in this world by constantly searching the internet.
What Does The Character Morpheus Represent in the Matrix?
Morpheus in Greek mythology is a messenger of the gods. He appears to humans through dreams with the intention of delivering divine Knowledge and Truth. In the Greek mythos, he can appear in almost any form in people’s dreams, which could be because anyone, regardless of race, gender, or outward appearance, can be a messenger of enlightenment and Truth.
The First Matrix Film is About The Beginning of the Journey to Awakening
With the understanding of the deeper meaning behind what Neo and Morpheus’ characters represent in the film, we can now appreciate the intro scene of Neo sleeping (whilst searching for Morpheus) through a different lens of perception and awareness.
You see, Neo sleeping whilst searching online for Morpheus represents the early stages of the Truth seekers journey — “asleep” but still searching for deeper meaning in life — and hoping to find that meaning by seeking out a “messenger” of higher Knowledge and Truth.
Truth is Terrorism in the Empire of Lies
Through his incessant efforts, Neo begins to get closer and closer to finding the elusive Morpheus. This, however, also attracts the unwanted attention of the Agents in the Matrix, which represent the enforcers of the shadow government of this system. Their job is to ensure that no one exposes what the Matrix really is, and how it turns unsuspecting every day human beings into useful resources that it can use and exploit.
The Agents proceed to apprehend Neo and interrogate him, where they make it very clear that they’ve been spying on him and keeping meticulous records of his activities, both online and offline, for quite some time now. As we all know very well today, all around the world intelligence agencies are doing exactly that — tracking what we view online and keeping meticulous records on many of our movements.
The agents, however, do not see Neo as being a major threat to the Matrix system, as he is still in the early stages of his awakening and does not know enough to be a major threat. Instead, they offer him a deal where they will be willing to “wipe the slate clean” on his illegal activities online, if Neo will simply help them track down the man they call Morpheus, who they claim is “a known terrorist” that is “considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous man alive”.
This represents that the single greatest threat to this manipulative system — which is overwhelmingly ruled by deception and exploitation — is any messenger of higher Knowledge and Truth that can potentially awaken those who are still “asleep” to what the proverbial Matrix really is. In fact, one could argue this sort of power struggle has been going on for thousands of years, and is possibly why Socrates was accused of “corrupting the youth” by the ruling class more than 2,000 years ago and subsequently sentenced to death; or why Fred Hampton was assassinated by government authorities in 1969; or, in more recent history, why civilians that were peacefully protesting against Wall Street and the bankers for their part in destroying the world economy in 2008, were targeted by the FBI and even labelled as potential “domestic terrorists“.
Simply put, Truth is terrorism in the empire of lies.
Neo, still being somewhat naïve and unbegun in his journey, rejects the Agent’s offer and demands he get a phone call because “I know my rights!”
To this, Agent Smith retorts, “tell me Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call if you’re unable to speak?”, which results in Neo’s mouth warping in the most eerie of ways.
This scene represents a lesson that all genuine Truth seekers eventually come to learn — this system is not concerned with human rights nor is it concerned with upholding authentic justice. Instead, it inculcates these beliefs and misperceptions into our minds from a very young age, because it serves to help legitimize its unnecessary existence in the eyes of the unsuspecting public and indoctrinate us as to why we think we need it. But in reality, our government guaranteed “rights” can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye.
In relation to current events, for example, many thousands of people worldwide have been arrested for violating curfew orders; In one Indian state, civilians were told they must take selfies every hour and send it to the authorities to prove that they are staying indoors; in South Africa, some have been fined for not wearing masks while driving their cars; In Boston in the United States, people have even been told that they will be fined if they walk “the wrong direction” down the street; Homeless people in France have reportedly been fined for not staying indoors; Some people have been arrested for attending funerals of loved ones because it violated lockdown orders; Others (including doctors and scientists) have had their right to freedom of speech censored online; In Australia, a pregnant woman was actually arrested in her home for facebook posts that encouraged protesting against the lockdown; According to the International Labor Organization, tens of millions are being pushed into unemployment; and travel all around the world has been severely restricted by these authorities who have taken it upon themselves to be the rulers of this planet by dictating what the rest of us can and cannot do. Whether you agree with these policies or not, these things cannot logically be called “rights” since they are so very easily violated and taken away from us.
There are many other examples that demonstrate how our government given “rights” are more of a comforting illusion than an actual reality, such as the CIA’s secretive Black Site torture programs, which have been done in cooperation with other intelligence agencies and authorities throughout the world. In these programs, people have been kidnapped — without any legal criminal charge or trial — and then taken to undisclosed secret locations where many of them are tortured for many months on end, in ways that are considered to be in violation of international law and basic human rights. The CIA, of course, simply claims they are suspected terrorists. In 2014, however, a Senate Intelligence Committee Report found that at least 26 of the people that were kidnapped and tortured were actually “wrongfully detained”.
Wake Up Neo — You Are the One
Fortunately, Neo manages to escape this unthinkable situation without any serious injury or harm. Soon after, he is contacted by Morpheus, where he is told that he was very lucky that the Agents underestimated his great potential and spared him, because if the Agents had known the great secret that Morpheus knows, then Neo would probably be dead.
Confused by the obvious strangeness of everything taking place, Neo asks Morpheus what the hell is going on, and what exactly is he talking about?? Without hesitation, Morpheus replies to him, “You are the one Neo — You see, you may have spent the last few years looking for me, but I have spent my entire life looking for you.”
This is perhaps the most important lesson the new Truth seeker must eventually come to learn — We are the ones we have been waiting for to change this corrupt world my friends; and we must stop looking for heroes and human leaders to absolve us of this very serious responsibility. Instead, we must all take on the role of Morpheus — which is to awaken as many Neo’s (new minds) as we possibly can, whilst also taking on the role that represents the journey of Neo, by challenging ourselves to become the best version of who we authentically are.
By doing this, we will help to awaken and unleash the unique creative forces of each individual’s problem solving imagination; and we will also find unity in our shared struggle against the injustices, and corruption, of this inhumane system which invariably exploits us all.
If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?

This Clever & Controversial Artwork Will Help You Think Deeper About Society
True artists are what I view as the antithesis of entertainers…
You see, an entertainer is concerned with popular opinion and giving the public what it wants to see. They intoxicate us with mindless amusements to help us escape reality and the everyday stresses of life. But artists, on the other hand, they give us what we need to see; by challenging us to to think deeper about the nature of reality, and the society in which we live, and they do this through the transcendent language of art.
With that said, I decided to collect some of the most thought provoking artwork from around the internet and offered my own little commentary on them…
