Transcript of 60 Plan of Depopulation


1 Robespierres Plan of DepopulationIntroductionBernard Shaw, a playwright, and leading member of the Fabian Socialists and member of the Theosophical society, wrote in 1928 how integral depopulation of nations are to the ultimate success of socialism:When Socialism does away with the artificial overpopulation... the State will be face to face at last with the genuine population question: the question of how many people it is desirable to have in the country. To get rid of the million or so for whom our capitalists fail to find employment, the State now depends on a high death rate. . . . If [after Socialism is instituted] we find our population still increasing, we may have to discuss whether we should keep it down, as we keep down the cat population, by putting the superfluous babies into the bucket, which would be no wickeder than the avoidable infant mortality and surgical abortion resorted to at present.1

The Robespierre-led Jacobins in 1793-1794 tried reducing the population by killing people en masse. Initially, they justified this as a means of averting the problems of starvation and unemployment. Their logic was unassailable. The less mouths to feed or people to work means more happy working people with food on their table. Later socialists like Shaw inherited this reasoning from the Robespierre-period of his domination over the Jacobin Clubs.Illuminati of Bavaria 1

Robespierres Plan of Depopulation

Robespierre had expelled the Illuminist influence in France by late 1793, claiming their ideas on not executing the king and not killing people for revenge were too moderate. Robespierre hijacked the Jacobin clubs from Brissot and his Illuminists allies, and took the Revolution in an utterly differ-

Such ideas were most recently proclaimed in a tape by Dr. Helen Caldicott entitled Saving the Planet (National Radio Broadcast, Portland, Oregon, November 12, 1989(1991) She is the founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility. In 1985, her organization won the Nobel Peace Prize for its work toward total world disarmament. To jumpstart evolution to the next level, Caldicott envisions moving the world to the point where humans no longer live on earth. We think our life is very precious. Well, I suppose it is. But were all going to die anyway. Were very fortunate to have been conceived... its an incredible privilege. But really, if you think about it, I think it's more important for the other species to survive. And Im going to put forth a very radical concept.... I think we should put contraceptives in the water supplies of the world [i.e., chemicals that cause male sterility] and also some aphrodisiacs to keep people happy. And I think we should stop having babies because if you say a family can have one baby thats an open entry to have more babies....But generally you cant stop people reproducing except I think if you mandate it. Now listen to this, and think of this. Bacteria that we kill because they kill us have as much right to exist as we do. Dont they? They're a product of evolution. And if we believe in God, and I believe that the life process is god, the AIDS virus has as much right to live as we. Now isnt that a strange concept? But it does in evolutionary terms. And if we stop being so egocentric and value our fellow creatures as much or more than us, then we might get the right perspective on things. Now what if we all stopped having babies? And I know a lot of young people dont want to have babies because they dont want to bring their children into a world that is so dangerous... But a lot of people feel really worried about this. What if we stopped having babies, and we lived out our life span, we did a bit more pollution, and we made a few more nuclear reactors, and we ate drank and be merry, and within a hundred years wed all disappear. Would that be a bad thing? Ive lived my life, and Ive had fun. You lived yours, and you lived yours. But what if there was no more people on the earth? And then trees started to grow up in the cities,... and everything just disintegrated and the earth became what it once was full of life, teaming with life without this evolutionary aberrant [humanity] upsetting the balance.

First Published Mention Of The Plan of Depopulation

ent direction one of purposeful depopulation, as we shall demonstrate in this chapter. Unfortunately, later liberal-left thinkers have taken Robespierres hijacked version of the revolution as the one to replicate rather than see the wisdom in the Illuminist ideal of promoting their policies by education, gradual enlightenment and by democratic agreement.

First Published Mention Of The Plan of DepopulationIn early 1794, the Jacobin society at Strasbourg mentioned a program of depopulation. Their journal published the proceedings where this was openly debated in the club. Baudot started the meeting by saying: Let us then utterly destroy them [that is, Jacobin opponents].... Were they a million would not one sacrifice the twenty-fourth part of ones self to get rid of the gangrene which might infect the rest of the body?2 Since France had twenty-four million citizens, this total represented one-twenty-fourth of the nations population. Baudot then said these must all be put to death in one blow. DAntonelle agreed. He thought to constitute a republic an approximate equality of property should be established: and to do this, a third of the population should be suppressed.3 At other times, DAntonelle advocated reducing the population of France to only ten million inhabitants2.

Robespierres Plan of Depopulation

by means of a perpetual war of extermination....4 Thus, Jean DAntonelle favored putting between eight to fifteen million to death. Jean Bon St. Andr suggested that for the solid foundation of the Republic in France, the population should be reduced by one-half.5 St. Andrs blood curdling recommendation represented the killing of 12 million. The most extreme view was that of Robespierre. According to an upset colleague in a letter to Robespierre, he confirmed Robespierre felt the proposal to reduce to two million men the total population of France was still too many people to be left alive.6 Fortunately, these depopulation proposals did meet with some objection. Larevellire-Lpaux criticized its scope. A compromise was reached. The Jacobins at the Strasbourg club where this was discussed made a decision, according to Guffroy (a deputy of the Pas-de-Calais), to reduce the population of France to five million inhabitants.7 That would require the death/disappearance of only twenty-million people. However, Pags and Antoine-tienne Fantin Desdoards (1738-1820)8 assert that the plan was not so extreme, and that instead it was generally agreed to reduce the population only to eight million.9 This would require the death/disappearance of merely seventeen million people.

Robespierres Bloodcurdling Calls for Terror and Tyranny

Robespierres Bloodcurdling Calls for Terror and TyrannyConcurrent with this discussion among Jacobins in early 1794, Robespierre, their national leader, had shifted from a democratic heart to a self-justified tyrant willing to employ terror to break their enemies and unabashedly establish despotism. He wrote to the Legislature in February 1794:[I]n this situation the first maxim of your policy must be to guide the people with reason and the peoples enemies with terror . . . Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, severe, and inflexible; it is therefore an emanation of virtue. . . . Break the enemies of liberty with terror, and you will be justified as founders of the Republic. The government of

6. An audacious colleague wrote Robespierre about a project under discussion: You tend to dictatorship....You have lost the firm foundations of a Republic....What? Reduce France to two million men and that is still too many, you said! (quoi! reduire France deux millions dhommes! et cest trop encore, as tu dit!).

Courtois had been charged in 1794 by the Convention with printing all of Robespierres writings that bore on the issues of his tyranny. However, Courtois was a relative of Danton, and for reasons apparently to protect Dantons memory, he refrained from including an important series of
