Countering Crackpot De-Population Environmentalism

ARTICLE QUOTE: 'Let's stop trying to fool ourselves by thinking or promoting the idea that genocide could ever be for "the good of the whole...."'

There was a sort of crackpot de-population environmentalism which became all the rage during the late 1950s carrying on through the 1960s; I remember it well. The basic idea was that Mankind would destroy itself through over-population. Most of these hysterical seers believed that nations like India, China and even the USA would be finished because of 'food wars' probably by 1975 and certainly well before 1985. They wanted de-population on a massive scale, seeing it as the only hope for our planet. This sort of nonsense was, of course, much loved by the Jehovah's Witnesses and other extremist cults because it tended to 'buy into' their own crackpot apocalyptic scenario. The amazing thing is that, even though these self-appointed 'prophets of doom' got it all so massively wrong there is still a following for this sort of environmental depopulationism, even though much of the new support is from young people who are far too young to remember how seriously these theories failed (to take two examples, of which many more are possible, far from imploding due to mass-starvation, India is one of the great economic success stories of the last 25 years, and China is expected to be the most powerful economy in the world within another 25 years).

The UN continues to have an agenda to push this sort of de-population nonsense and so do other organisations and influential individuals (including, by the way, Prince Philip of Great Britain) and, here at UK Apologetics, we want to increasingly warn about the serious errors involved in this very anti-human philosophy. To this end, we introduce an article by Marjorie Tietjen. I should just say that we don't necessarily buy into the 'new world order' conspiracy theories at all but, having said that, these people do tend to bring certain things to light which some might wish to keep covered.

My interest in depopulation began several years ago when I was invited to visit Costa Rica. Just prior to my trip I had come across information on Mikhail Gorbachev, his headquarters at Northeastern University in Boston and found some interesting quotes which seem to reveal his true motives and goals. Many of you may know that Gorbachev claims to be a very dedicated environmentalist (see "Keep an Eye On Gorbachev" Along with this information I began to learn bits and pieces about Maurice Strong and Robert Muller who also feel we need a "new paradigm"......a reduction in the present population, that whole areas of the world must be set aside as wild preserves and that the world population must be educated towards a new spirituality.

Robert Muller lives in Costa Rica, is co-chairman of The University For Peace at the base of legendary Mt. Rasur, and was also The Assistant Secretary General for the U.N. This information perked my interest and I kept it all in mind, as I traveled through Costa Rica....from San Jose, to the mountains and then down to the sea. Throughout our trip the tour guides constantly repeated the fact that Costa Rica has a very young population. I began noticing that I rarely saw any old people.. I only noticed approximately 10 or 15 old people during my ten day stay. When we returned to San Jose at the end of our trip we took a bus tour around the city. I asked the tour guide where all the old people were. He laughed nervously and said, hopefully joking, "We kill them all off." Then he said that he didn't know where they all were and perhaps the old people were all in their houses. About 10 minutes later the tour guide shouted "Look....there is an old woman crossing the street!! " The whole bus (mostly elderly Americans) clapped and cheered.

My overall impression of Costa Rica was that it was a very beautiful and friendly country...almost utopic. Costa Rica has no standing military and the environmental laws are very strict. The thought came to me at that point...I bet Costa Rica is a prototype for sustainable developement. I realized later that my hunch had been right on target!

The University for Peace is headed by both Robert Muller and Maurice Strong. It is sponsored by the United Nations as a model for education in the 21st century. Robert Muller created the World Core Curriculum for this school and other "Robert Muller Schools." This curriculum is based on the channeled messages from the Spirit Guide of Alice Bailey. Legend has it that peace willl flow out from this mountain unto all the world.

Here is the Prophecy of Rasur......

"One day, a long time ago in the village of Quisar, all the children suddenly disappeared underground. The parents could not understand what was happening and became extremely worried. Faintly rising up from the earth below, they heard laughter and singing and knew that their children were safe. The children began to move and the parents followed their voices until they were stopped by a strong magnetic force at the base of Mt. Rasur ( where the University for Peace is located ). The earth abruptly opened and the children as well as a being of light, Rasur (the god of indigenous children) appeared to the surprised parents. Rasur then spoke to the children, never once looking at the parents and said "Dear children, the Great Spirit is in every animal, in every bird, butterfly, insect, leaf and grass you see. The Great Spirit is also in you, the Creator's children. Please take care of the wonderful nature created by God and someday, from this mountain, you will see the birth of a new civilization of peace spread to the entire world."

I'm not sure how ancient this prophecy is supposed to be but it sounds like something recently made up to facilitate a global agenda. Robert Muller's website is I wonder what magnetic force the "prophecy" is referring to? Notice how the parents are being totally disregarded and separated from their children. Haven't we heard that the way to change society's values and beliefs is to separate the children from the parents and to essentially brainwash them? I also wondered where underground these children were herded to ....or...if this is prophecy....where they will be led to? Could this be referring to our modern underground bases and tunnels?

Costa Rica is the world headquarters of The Earth Council. Besides being involved with The University for Peace in Costa Rica, Maurice Strong is also chairman of 'The Earth Council.' He is worth around a billion dollars and is extremely influential in world politics. He advocates saving the environment but his corporate actions speak otherwise. The National Post commented that Maurice Strong is a "One World advocate" and a depopulation extremist.. For a good overview of Agenda 21 (the United Nation's plan for global transformation) and more information on Maurice Strong, I would suggest a perusal of the following website...

Robert Muller, during a speech in Costa Rica in 1994, addressed Costa Rican presidential figures. "Now on this first day of your presidency, you are, in convening this national and international forum, sending a signal to your countrymen and the world community of your commitment to lead Costa Rica in another historic transition to a new model for development in alliance with nature - a pilot project for national implementation of the Agenda 21 agreed on at the Earth Summit in Rio." Later in his speech he talks about a newly planned "Earth Park." "It will be a visible and enduring expression of your commitment, Mr. President, to making Costa Rica a model for the world in the practical implementation of sustainable developement and we hope we'll help to establish San Jose clearly as the Earth's Eco Capital."

The definition of geronticide is the hastening of death of the elderly either through rationing of resources or treatment, or through social pressures which lead to euthanasia or suicide. Could this be occuring in Costa Rica as well as in other countries? Many people who retire are divorced from their insurance benefits and can no longer afford medical treatments. Has the economic system been developed with this in mind? When people retire and are no longer productive, they are considered to be a drain on society.

Retirement is a fairly new concept. Just when people have gained the most wisdom and experience, they are encouraged to basically drop out of society. Are those in control worried that this wisdom and experience will be shared with the younger generation? Retired people are often shuffled off to Florida, other old age communities and rest homes where they are isolated from the real world and from the younger generation which could benefit from their knowledge. This reminds me of The Prophecy of Rasur...disconnecting people from each other. What is really the main purpose of all those flu shots that especially the older people are pressured into recieving? I've always wondered how the scientists could tell a year or more ahead of time, which strain of 'flu would travel to the United States.

The following are a few quotes from the "Initiative for ECO - 92 Earth Charter" which was privately circulated at an ECO meeting.

"The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world's carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing. This must be done by whatever means necessary."

A. "The Security Council of the U.N. led by Anglo Saxon Major Powers, will decree that henceforth the Security Council will inform all nations that it's suffrance on population has ended, that all nations have quotas for population reduction on a yearly basis, which will be enforced by the Security Council by selective or total embargo of credit, items of trade, including food and medicine, or by military force, when required."

C. "The Security Council of the U.N. will take possesion of all natural resources, including the watersheds and great forests, to be used and preserved for the good of the Major Nations of The Security Council."

D. "The Security Council of the U.N. will explain that not all races and peoples are equal, nor should they be. Those races proven superior by superior achievements ought to rule the lesser races, caring for them on suffrance that they cooperate with The Security Council." For the complete document see

What is the extent of the population control movement? To what lengths will the environmental extemists go to in order to accomplish their goal? What is their goal? The following is a quote by New Age writer, Sam Keen. He attended the 1996 conference in San Francisco, sponsored by Mikhail Gorbachev. There he made the statement that some of you may be familiar with....

"We must speak more clearly about sexuality, contraception, about abortion, about values that control population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren't enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage."

Of course our environmental problems...need to be addressed.....however....I don't think the Creator would require that we all kill each other off in order to solve these problems.

Maurice Strong, Ted Turner, Gorbachev and many other so called environmentalists, are very rich and powerful. How did they get this way? Did they exploit natural resources to attain this wealth and power? Is extreme environmentalism an excuse for them to gain more power, control, wealth and a feeling of safety from the challenges encountered in an uncertain world? Are some of our environmental problems being encouraged, for the time being, by those in power, to accomplish their goal of One World Government. Gorbachev was quoted as saying that the environment was the cornerstone of the New World Order.. (An article I wrote..."Purifying Our Environment" discusses what I feel is the root solution to our environmental problems. The link is

When certain species of animals in the wild reach an overabundance and their ecosystem can no longer support them, some die off. However, human beings have been given the ability to reason, to love others, to share, and to rise above animalistic tendencies. I believe it is possible to solve our problems in a much more humane and caring way. At the same time we would be learning how to work together without fear. Perhaps the world is going through such a struggle in order to force us to come to terms with these difficulties in a more spiritual and upright fashion.

We all know , deep in our hearts, that evil can never produce good. Let's stop trying to fool ourselves by thinking or promoting the idea that genocide could ever be for "the good of the whole."
