A Picture Emerges
In his 1957 book New Bottles For New Wine, Julian Huxley writes,
As a result of a thousand million
years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of
itself, able to understand something of its past history and its
This cosmic self-awareness is being realized in
one tiny fragment of the universe - in a few of us human beings.
Perhaps it has been realized elsewhere too, through the
evolution of conscious living creatures on the planets of other
stars. But on this our planet, it has never happened before.
Evolution on this planet is a history of the realization of ever
new possibilities by the stuff of which Earth (and the rest of
the universe) is made - life; strength, speed and awareness; the
emergence of mind, long before man was ever dreamt of, with the
production of color, beauty, communication, maternal care, and
the beginnings of intelligence and insight.
And finally, during
the last few ticks of the cosmic clock, something wholly new and
revolutionary, human beings with their capabilities for
conceptual thought and language, for self-conscious awareness
and purpose, for accumulating and pooling conscious experience.
For do not let us forget that the human species is as radically
different from any of the microscopic single-called animals that
lived a thousand million years ago as they were from a fragment
of stone or metal.
The new understanding of the universe has come about through the
new knowledge amassed in the last hundred years - by
psychologists, biologists, and other scientists, by
archaeologists, anthropologists, and historians. It has defined
man’s responsibility and destiny - to be an agent for the rest
of the world in the job of realizing its inherent potentialities
as fully as possible.
It is as if man had been suddenly appointed managing director of
the biggest business of all the business of evolution -
appointed without being asked if he wanted it, and without
proper warning and preparation. What is more, he can’t refuse
the job. Whether he wants to or not, whether he is conscious of
what he is doing or not, he is in point of fact determining the
future direction of evolution on this Earth.
That is his
inescapable destiny, and the sooner he realizes it and starts
believing in it, the better for all concerned.

Quoting again from New Bottles For New Wine, written in
"But man does not live by bread
alone. He needs power and shelter and clothing, and in addition
to all material requirements he needs space and beauty, sport
and recreation, interest and enjoyment.
"Excessive population can erode all these things. Up till now,
rapid population increase has led to hyper-trophied cities, so
big that they are beginning to defeat their own ends; they are
producing discomfort, inefficiency and nervous strain as well as
cutting off millions of people from any real contact or sense of
unity with nature.
"Population increase also threatens the world’s open spaces and
the beauty of unspoilt nature. In small countries with high
population density, like England, the pressure on mere space is
becoming acute. But even in newer and less densely inhabited
countries the process of erosion and destruction is going on,
often at an alarming rate.
Everywhere, even in Africa, wild life
- not merely big game, but wild life in general - is shrinking
and often being exterminated: the world’s mountains are being
invaded by hydroelectric projects, its forests cut down or
commercialized, its wilderness infiltrated by farmers and miners
and tourists and other invaders.
Even the cultural richness of
the world is being impoverished. The pressure of population is
being translated into economic and social pressures, which are
forcing mass-produced goods into every corner of the globe,
pushing people into Western dress and Western habits, sapping
ancient cultural ideals and destroying traditional art and
"Indeed, once we start looking at the population problem as a
whole and in all its implications, we find ourselves being
pressed into a reconsideration of human values in general. First
of all we must reject the idea that mere quantity of human
beings is of value apart from the quality of their lives.
after realizing that all existence is a process of
transformation or evolution, that the human species in its
cultural evolution is continuing and extending the process of
biological evolution from which it arose, that the well-rounded
and developed human personality is the highest product of the
evolutionary process of which we have any knowledge, but that
the human individual cannot achieve full development except in
the environment provided by an adequate society, we find
ourselves inevitably driven to the ideal of fulfillment -
greater fulfillment for more fully developed human individuals.
"Accordingly, the values we must pursue are those which permit
or promote greater human fulfillment. Food and health, energy
and leisure are its necessary bases: its value-goals are
knowledge and interest, beauty and emotional expression, inner
integration and outer participation, enjoyment and a sense of
significance. In practice these values often come into
competition and even conflict; so to achieve greater fulfillment
we need a pattern of compromise and mutual adjustment between
"The space and the resources of our planet are limited. Some we
must set aside for the satisfaction of man’s material needs -
for food, raw materials, and energy.
But we must set aside
others for more ultimate satisfactions - the enjoyment of unspoilt nature and fine scenery, the interest of wild life,
travel, satisfying recreation, beauty in place of ugliness in
human building, and the preservation of the variety of human
culture and of monuments of ancient grandeur.
"In practice this means limiting the use to which some areas are
put. You cannot use ploughed fields to land aircraft on, you
cannot grow crops in built-over areas, you cannot permit
exploitation or unrestricted "development" in National Parks or
nature sanctuaries. In the long run, you cannot avoid paying the
price for an unrestricted growth of human numbers: and that
price is ruinous.
"It is often asserted that science can have no concern with
values. On the contrary, in all fields of Social Science, and
(in rather a different way) wherever the applications of Natural
Science touch social affairs and affect human living, science
must take account of values, or it will not be doing its job
The population problem makes this obvious. As
soon as we recall that population is merely a collective term
for aggressions of living human beings, we find ourselves
thinking about relations between quantity and quality-quantity
of the human beings in the population and quality of the lives
they lead: in other words, values.
"Though I may seem to have painted the picture of world
population in gloomy colors, there is hope.
Just as the horrible
destructiveness of atomic warfare is now prompting a
reconsideration of warfare in general, and seems likely to lead
to the abandonment of all-out war as an instrument of national
policy, so I would predict that the threat of over-population to
human values like health, standard of living, and amenity will
prompt a reconsideration of values in general and lead
eventually to a new value-system for human living. But time is
of the essence of the contract.
If before the end of the century
the rate of human increase is not lowered, instead of continuing
to rise, so many values will have been damaged or destroyed that
it will be difficult to recreate them, let alone to build a new
and better system."
The Vietnam War may have ended, but it continues to claim its
Veterans, who were at the peak of their physical condition
when they fought in Vietnam, are now sick and dying - not from
lingering enemy wounds but from an insidious, poisonous herbicide
that was sprayed over the countryside of that war-torn nation.
During the war, U.S. airplanes dumped an estimated twelve million
gallons of the defoliant Agent Orange over nearly five million acres
of Vietnam in an attempt to deny the enemy protective cover. United
States soldiers below - often surrounded by a fog of the herbicide -
were told that it was harmless. It was not.
Quoting from Fred
Wilcox’s 1989 book Waiting For An Army To Die - The Tragedy Of Agent
In 1970 when the order to stop using Agent Orange in South Vietnam
was issued, the U.S. military was left with thousands of
fifty-five-gallon drums containing this herbicide. Some of these
barrels were stored on Johnston Island in the Pacific, while others
went to the Naval Construction Battalion Center at Gulfport,
But the drums started to rust and their contents began
leaking, making it imperative that something more "final" be done
about the surplus stocks of herbicide Orange. In February 1972, the
Mississippi Air and Pollution Control Commission ordered that the
Agent Orange stored at Gulfport be removed immediately. Faced with
this, the Air Force tried returning the remaining stocks of
Orange to its manufacturers, who refused to accept the offer.
Force officials also suggested that the surplus herbicide be
disposed of "by the prudent disposition of herbicide Orange for use
on privately owned or governmentally owned lands." This plan also
failed and, seven years after the barrels were removed from Vietnam,
the EPA finally granted the Air Force a permit to incinerate the
remaining stocks of Agent Orange on the German-built ship Vulcnus in
the South Pacific.
By the time the permit was granted, more than
5,000 drums containing over a quarter million gallons of Agent
Orange had rotted through.
At the first "Defoliation Conference" sponsored by the Department of
Defense and attended by several chemical companies (including Dow
and Monsanto), General Fred J. Delmore, commanding general, U.S.
Army, Edgewood Arsenal, told the companies’ representatives that the
DOD wanted to make sure that whatever it used for defoliants would
be "perfectly innocuous to man and animals and at the same time will
do the job."
Albert Hayward, chief of the program coordination
office at Fort Detrick, told the conference that "it goes without
saying that the materials must be applicable by ground and air
spray, that they must be logistically feasible, and that they must
be nontoxic to humans and livestock in the area affected." In a 1964
press release, Dow asserted that its 2,4,5-T was absolutely nontoxic
to humans or animals, but by 1965 the company confirmed that it
Dow also admitted that it had not informed the

The class action [suit by Vietnam veterans] is not only unique but
ironic in many ways: 2.5 million Vietnam veterans suing chemical
companies that were, theoretically, manufacturing a product that
would save American lives in Vietnam; the chief attorney for the
veterans confiding that he gets his most incriminating information
on the effects of dioxin from scientists who work for one of the
plaintiff war contractors; and the chemical companies arguing they
were just "following orders" when they made Agent Orange, some of
which was 15 to 15,000 times more contaminated with dioxin than the
2,4,5-T sold for domestic use.
Although the class action suit has been filed on behalf of all
veterans who served in Vietnam, the number of veterans who were
listed as sick or dying at the time of the interview was
approximately 40,000. More veterans will undoubtedly be added to
this list in the future.
CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL
In Robert Harris and Jeremy Paxman’s book A Higher Form Of Killing -
-The Secret Story Of Chemical And Biological Warfare, we read:
The secret story of chemical and biological warfare demonstrates few
things so clearly as the way in which discoveries made in the cause
of human welfare can be used to devise ever more sophisticated
instruments of death. Discoveries in veterinary science are tuned to
the development of new biological weapons.
A potential pesticide is
transformed into a nerve agent. Yet the present generation of
weapons is based upon scientific discoveries made up to fifty years
ago: until the late 1970s British and American chemists were still
attempting to produce an antidote to soman, an agent which had first
been developed in the laboratories of Nazi Germany.
the effects of today’s weapons may be, however, they are capable of
infinite refinement. The present arsenals are huge: the "inadequate"
stock of nerve gas in the United States is sufficient to kill the
entire population of the world four thousand times over.
It is in the field of biological warfare that the most frightening
possibilities present themselves. It is now nearly thirty years
since Crick and Watson made their momentous discovery of the "double
helix" structure of DNA, the molecule which controls heredity. The
discovery has not yet, as far as is known, been applied to the
business of war.
But in the civilian laboratories of Europe and
North America biologists are regularly tampering with the nature of
life itself through "gene splicing" or recombinant
DNA. It has been
called the most awesome discovery since man split the atom. Should
the breakthrough, like atomic physics, come to be applied to warfare
the implications scarcely bear thinking about.
As long ago as 1962, forty scientists were employed at the U.S. Army
biological warfare laboratories on full-time genetics research.
"Many others", it was said, "appreciate the implications of genetics
for their own work".
The implications were made more specific seven
years later, when a Department of Defense spokesman claimed that
genetic engineering could solve one of the major disadvantages of
biological warfare, that it is limited to diseases which occur
naturally somewhere in the world.
Within the next 5 to 10 years, it would probably be possible to make
a new infective micro-organism which could differ in certain
important respects from any known disease-causing organisms. Most
important of these is that it might be refractory [i.e., not
yielding to treatment] to the immunological and therapeutic
processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from

The AIDS virus was specifically requested, produced, deployed, and
now threatens extinction of the species. You are headed for the
worst catastrophe in the history of your world.
The first officially diagnosed case of
AIDS was in San Francisco in
1981. Actually, it went something like this: The AIDS virus appeared
in New York in 1978, San Francisco and Los Angeles in 1980. It
appeared in young, white, male homosexuals who were between the ages
of twenty and forty and promiscuous in behavior. Simultaneously with
its appearance, there was conducted a Hepatitis B vaccine study in
New York in 1978 and in San Francisco and Los Angeles in 1980 -
among young white male homosexuals who were between the ages of
twenty and forty.
You must surely ask yourself if there is a relationship between the
Hepatitis B vaccine study in the United States and the subsequent
outbreak of AIDS in the same population groups and at exactly the
Further, this followed right on the steps of the outbreak of the
disease in Third World areas such as Africa and
Haiti in the 1970s.
West Coast gays, particularly in San Francisco, made Haiti a main
playground and vacation spot during that ensuing period of time,
thereby being hit from two directions.
In your mid 1970s the
outbreak of smallpox in Africa was epidemic
and spreading into many other sectors. An organization was created
called the World Health Organization (WHO), which made an all out
effort to inoculate thousands and thousands of people, among which
were some 15,000 Haitians who were working in Africa at the time.
You have to have some understanding of viruses, bacteria, human cell
origin, tissue culture and manipulation of all those things within
In addressing what the AIDS virus is, the virus has a morphology
which is actually a D-type retrovirus. So what are viruses? Some of
you people are convinced, and I shall not confuse you, that viruses
are the smallest replicating micro-organism. That means they are
thought to be the smallest replicating organism that require other
cells in which to grow themselves.
That viruses are not capable of reproducing themselves on their own,
outside of living tissue, is the conviction of the scientists today.
Viruses must inhabit another cell for potential growth and
Bacteria, fungus, and some other organisms are actually capable of
growing outside of tissue, in other words, they don’t have to
inhabit other tissue to reproduce themselves. They can grow on
tissue culture plates such as bacteria. The viruses must grow inside
of tissue which requires that there be living human or animal tissue
in which they may replicate.
Retrovirus means that it is a small replicating organism which
inside of living tissue. So what does the term "retro" mean? In the
case of this particular virus, it stands for the fact that contained
within the AIDS virus, and other so-called human retroviruses,
other animal retroviruses, are small enzymes known as reverse
That is where the word "retro" comes from. The
reverse transcriptase, which is where the "re" comes from "reverse"
and the "tro" from transcriptase. That is an enzyme in the
virus which actually is responsible for duplication of the genes of
the AIDS virus which are in an RNA form, different from human form.
Human genetic material grows in a DNA form.
If the AIDS virus is to insert itself into human material, somehow
after infection of the cell, what happens is this enzyme duplicates
the RNA of the AIDS virus into a DNA form and actually inserts that
into the human DNA. The AIDS virus genes get in and are actually
duplicated into DNA form, copied by the reverse transcriptase. That
information is then inserted into the genetic makeup of the human
cell. This is now an AIDS virus residing within the human genes
which then sends out a signal for production of a NEW AIDS virus.
Read carefully - NEW AIDS VIRUS!
Beyond AIDS the genetic information of all retroviruses is copied
into the DNA form by the reverse transcriptase inserted into the
genes and subsequent production of new viruses.
Let me generalize a bit of information here for better
understanding. Virology is the study of viruses which deals with
tiny living organisms visible only with the use of the most powerful
electron microscopes on your planet as you now recognize the
Millions of AIDS viruses can easily fit onto
the head of a small pin.
The AIDS virus is particularly deadly to
you humans because of its ability to not invade and neutralize human
cells, but the virus’s ability to put its own genetic material
inside the human cell’s genetic structure, thereby allowing the
virus to use the human cell as a kind of virus factory, reproducing
from a human cell’s raw materials.
DR. EVA SNEAD
In her courageous and well documented two volume book Some Call It
AIDS - I Call It Murder, Dr. Eva Snead writes:
According to Robert Lederer’s Chemical-Biological Warfare, Medical
Experiments, and Population Control, "U.S. CBW [chemical-biological
warfare] has been used primarily for counter-insurgency operations
against Third World peoples struggling for self-determination, and
destabilization of Third World governments which have thwarted U.S.
It has been directed in direct attack against various
adversaries; early records take us back to as early as 1763, when
white colonial settlers gave smallpox-infected blankets to Native
Americans who sought friendly relations. Many died as a result." The
tactic was repeated during the "Trail of Tears" of the 1800s.
The examples are numerous and abhorrent, and my mind entertains the
possibility that even the great flu pandemic that swept the planet
in 1917-1919 was a result of deliberate or accidental biologic
accidents: soldiers as carriers of innumerable and unpredictable
microorganisms, transmitted by what was called serum therapy and
prophylaxis, crude vaccines administered to people who were
immune-suppressed by the administration of so many antigens, as well
as by host vs. graft reactions to the serums, and by the use of lindane (Kwell) and other parasite-killers.
Not only is CBW unhealthy for its victims, but can seriously
endanger those who tell the ugly truth. "In 1958 the Eisenhower
administration pressed sedition charges against three North
Americans who had published the germ warfare charges in China
Monthly Review, John W. Powell, Sylvia Powell and Julian Schuman,
but failed to get convictions."
An interesting connection between
CBW and vital illnesses, including
AIDS is derived from the reported infestation of Cuban pigs with
African Swine fever in 1971 and 1980. African Swine Fever virus was
found in some AIDS cases and the researchers that worked in the
perusal of such connections found themselves attacked by academia.
Some researchers believe that one of the most dangerous places on
Earth, because of its biologic weapons against livestock and food
plants is Plum Island, N.Y., where exercises in bio-warfare as
described above, are allegedly practiced.
Lederer describes the fantasies of the military in their search for
an ultimate weapon. In 1969, a military official testified before

persuasion, may be seduced by a belief in hygiene, to practice
involuntary family planning.
"Population control of the Third World has been a policy goal of
U.S. officials for many years. In 1977, Ray Ravenhott, director of
the population program for the U.S. Agency for International
Development (AID), publicly announced his agency’s goal was to
sterilize one quarter of the world’s women.
He admitted, in essence,
that this was necessary to protect U.S. corporate interests from the
threat of revolutions spawned by chronic unemployment."
acronym AID seems to be a Freudian slip to tell us that
From the beginning, those groups listed as primary targets and
disseminators of AIDS "have published articles proposing CBW-AIDS
theories with varying degrees of thoughtfulness and documentation."
Accusations and denials went back and forth, most of them indicating
that the best candidate location for the creation of a harmful virus
might be Fort Detrick, Maryland, and that the covert actions was
called "Operation Firm Hand".
This last tidbit of information, so
ironical since people tend to refer to gay men as limp-wristed, was
provided by an anonymous letter by someone purporting to be an
ex-employee of the U.S. Army Biological Warfare Laboratory at Fort Detrick.
Scientists deal with very strange plans, at times. Although not at
Fort Detrick (’The Trick,’ as I like to call it), but at
Harbor, Long Island, N.Y., scientists have written and done work on
a MMMV (Multiple Monster Malignant Virus). This was an analysis of
what would be necessary to create such a monstrosity.
[Still quoting from Dr. Snead’s Some Call it AIDS - I Call It
The role of the CIA in the Belgian Congo has been previously
discussed. In addition to the information which surfaced at the
Frank Church Committee Hearings in 1976, Lederer tells us that,
"Serge Mukendi, U.S. representative of the Workers and Peasant Party
of the Congo, the country now known as Zaire, points out that the
CIA’s attempted poisoning of Lumumba and its
render reasonable the possible later use of CBW in Congo-Zaire.
noted the Agency for International Development commissioned a study
by the School of International Studies at Columbia University to
examine the possibilities of limiting the Congo-Zaire’s population
growth ’to prevent famine’."
As one example, he cited the dumping of
highly toxic radioactive wastes in the Congo-Zaire. AIDS, he
charged, may have been the ultimate population measure.
I was informed that The New York Times of Jan. 29, 1987, published a
story about the fact that Zaire was supporting immunization tests
against the AIDS virus. This test, the details of which were
carefully kept in secret, was administered to twelve European and
Congolese, including the medical Director Dr. Daniel Zagury.
Allegedly he had injected himself with the product. Inoculations
have the advantage of direct targets who can easily be identified
and studied, and who have no way of controlling or knowing what
substance they are receiving. The researcher has enormous latitude
to administer any substance of his choosing and calling it by any
name he wants to.
Vaccination campaigns are not only an excellent decoy for biological
warfare, they themselves can be lethal bio-weapons.
Lederer’s theories as to the origin of AIDS can be summarized as:
Theory number one is presented by two East German researchers in
microbiology, Jacob and Lilli Segal, who accept the existence of
AIDS, and its causation by HIV, but
insist that it was a military
blunder. Similar theories have been presented by Robert Strecker and
Sir John Scale, who in turn blame the Soviet Union for such an
Ultimately, Lederer himself points out that the whole
theory rests on the assumption that in fact HIV is the virus which
causes AIDS, a theory which has become increasingly questionable.
The second theory: Dioxin is one of the components of the sadly
famous Agent Orange, and also a by-product of PCP when this
substance is burned. A couple of Vietnam veterans are mentioned by
the author (Dave Bergh and Eal Zela Tex Aldredge) as proponents of a
toxic origin of AIDS.
According to EPA studies mentioned by
Lederer, sites of dioxin
dumping closely parallel areas of high AIDS incidence.
Susan Cavin, a journalist for a lesbian magazine, quotes up to "23
symptoms of indirect dioxin exposure parallel those of AIDS."
"soft tissue sarcomas (cancerous tumors), weight loss,
lung disorders, thymus and spleen depletion, liver damage, brain
disorders, and personality changes - dramatically decreased
resistance to infection - severe depletion of T-lymphocytes and
leukocytes - fungus infections - lymphomas."
The article reports
"Vietnam veterans are experiencing lymphomas at a rate
one-third higher than expected."
Little did anybody realize that the
victims had previously been inoculated with SV40 and abenoviruses
which became activated with the dioxin!
"The CDC uses the Hepatitis-B model to explain AIDS, that is, both diseases affect very similar groups".
occurred to anyone to follow the trails of the Hepatitis vaccine,
the gamma-globulins, the other vaccines, the vaccinated animal
products, etc., and study how they overlap with AIDS?
Lederer’s third theory,
"was developed by
Mark E. Whiteside, M.D.,
and Caroline MacLeod, M.D., M.P.H., co-directors of the Institute of
Tropical Medicine in Miami, Florida."
Their main areas of research
were Miami and Belle Glade (the town with the highest per-capita
incidence of AIDS in the United States).
Whiteside vehemently disagrees with the hetero-sexual transmission
theory, offered for the spread of AIDS in Belle Glade, Fl., where
the population that is highly afflicted mimics a swath cut through
Third World populations.
He says that those studies are "seriously
flawed by overwhelming bias, inadequate controls, and lack of
prospective data" particularly questioning relationship between the
high percentage of childhood AIDS in children whose mothers test
negative in African distribution (mostly heterosexual) of AIDS
cases, and the dogmatic affirmations by the government of the sexual
transmission theory, and the unusual confinement of Belle Glade AIDS
to just one neighborhood.
Some of the facts simply can not be
reconciled with the existing conventional wisdom.
These researchers believe,
"that AIDS is a
tropic-based, environmental disease, caused by at least two
arbor-viruses (insect-borne viruses) called maguari and dengue, both
endemic to tropical regions - the primary means of transmission
being re-posted bites by blood-sucking insects - mosquitoes or ticks
- carrying the virus from person to person."
Other means of blood
exchange are also implicated by these researchers.
AIDS corresponds to the insect belt in many parts of the world.
Before modern day AIDS, the region of greatest density of Kaposi’s
Sarcoma was on the border of Zaire and Uganda. Such tropical tumors
of Kaposi’s Sarcoma and Burkitt’s lymphoma were always linked to
environmental conditions - the distribution of these tumors
correlated with malaria and the insect-borne virus (arbor-virus)
A correlation between antibodies to HTLV-III/LAV (HIV)
and antibodies to malaria is also noted. Another correlation noticed
by these researchers, is the striking similitude between the
distribution of AIDS and that of TB.
When Whiteside and MacLeod tested Florida patients for over 50
arbor-virus, they found that a very high percentage tested positive
to dengue and maguari viruses.
The first one causes a painful
disease similar to a severe flu (Dengue is the name of a tropical
dance characterized by body contortions similar to those the victims
of this disease suffer due to spasms and pain), the second had not
been known to cause diseases in animals or humans, but belongs to a

Asia and Africa until 1977, when it appeared in Jamaica, Cuba and
Puerto Rico. It later spread to Haiti and other Caribbean Islands."
An epidemic occurred in Cuba in 1977 that was not only the first
Dengue I, but the first Dengue epidemic since 1944. Dengue type II
was fairly common in a mild form, but in 1981 Cuba had an
unprecedented epidemic of type II in the "hemorrhagic shock form,
with internal bleeding and shock - which resulted in 300,000
illnesses and 158 fatalities, including 101 children under 15."
The authors suspect that the movement of troops from Cuba into
Angola in 1977 might have caused some of this transoceanic viral
A 1982 CAIB investigation concluded that the 1981 hemorrhagic Dengue
type II epidemic in Cuba and another in 1977 were,
the result of U.S. biological warfare. The U.S. Army’s Biological
Warfare Laboratory at Fort Detrick, Maryland, has for years done
experiments with insect-borne disease in general and Dengue in
particular. In the 1950s, the Army carried out ’field tests’
releasing huge quantities of mosquitoes in Black communities in
Georgia and Florida."
It was also reported that Dengue type I had
been isolated in the South Pacific in 1974. This report appeared in
the Bulletin Of The World Health Organization in 1980.
It is also worth mentioning, that Russia allegedly produced

D7, which might have found its way into different countries by troop
movements or other means.

6 years to make this information public? Lederer questions the validity of the

MORE ON AIDS
In Prof. Robert O’Driscoll’s new book Corruption In Canada, appears
an article written by J. L. Read titled New World Order Strategy For
Population Reduction: AIDS:
In 1938 The National Resources Subcommittee on Population Problems (NRS)
recommended in its report to President Roosevelt that appropriate
legislative action should be taken regarding global population
The NRS stated that,
"transition from an increasing to a
stationary or decreasing population may on the whole be a benefit to
the life of the nation."
In 1970 microbiologist Dr. MacArthur solicited the Appropriations
Committee of the House for money for molecular biological research
with these words,
"Within the next 5 to 19 years, it would probably
be possible to make a new infective micro-micro-organism which could
differ in certain important aspects from any known disease-causing
Most important of these is that it might be refractory to
the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to
maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease."
What is a virus?
In his book Virus Hunting, AIDS, Cancers and the
Human Retrovirus, Dr. Robert C. Gallo (the doctor who is credited
with the discovery of AIDS) states that viruses are "obligate
cellular parasites". This means they need another medium in which to
grow and reproduce, therefore they invade a living cell and use it
as their new home.
Viruses are the smallest known living organism,
needing an electron microscope or similar device at 50,000X
magnification to be seen. Viruses can live outside of living tissue
in crystal form indefinitely.
AIDS is also known at
HTLV-III or Human T-Cell Lymphotrophic Virus.
It is a retrovirus that attacks the T-4 cells of the immune system.
A retrovirus is a virus that has a special enzyme, reverse
transcriptase, that is able to incorporate itself into the DNA of
the host cell, thereby using the DNA of that cell to reproduce more
virus, B cells are the part of the immune system that help to
produce protective antibodies.
The T-4 cells of the immune system
are lymphocytes, or small white blood cells, acted upon by hormones
in the thymus gland before they reach the blood stream. T-4 cells
help speed up the production of anti-bodies by the B cells.
Therefore, if the T-4 cells are destroyed the body is unable to aid
the B cells in antibody production and will die of any opportunistic
Viruses are also known to lie latent in the infected organism. Thus,
though they are present and potentially harmful, they are dormant,
not seeking cells for reproduction. AIDS is known to have a 3 to 5
years incubation time before the virus begins actively reproducing
and impairing the immune system to infection.
In 1972 at the
Biological Warfare Convention it was decided to
dismantle our biological warfare arsenals.
Robert Harris and
Jeremy Paxman point out in A Higher Form Of Killing,
"With the decision to
renounce germ warfare for all time, Fort Detrick had been handed
over to the civilian National Cancer Institute. But part of the camp
remained secret. Here the Pentagon established the Army Medical
Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, where a small group of
biologists would continue to work on those diseases which plague

concurs with the concept that AIDS was created in a laboratory from
the bovine and visna virus through recombinant DNA.
Not only was the World Health Organization (WHO), via
responsible for the creation of AIDS, but there is overwhelming
evidence that it was also responsible for the deliberate, initial
introduction of AIDS into the world population. In 1987 Science

has admitted through its own investigation that the vaccine was
contaminated, it has suppressed its findings. Wright’s article,
which linked the vaccination program and the increase of AIDS
victims in the Third World, especially Africa, was given no
press in the United States.
A further connection is pointed out by
T.E. Bearden in his
book Aids Biological Warfare.
"The small pox vaccine
theory would account for the position of the Central African states
as the most afflicted countries, why Brazil became the most affected
Latin American country, and how Haiti became the route for the
spread of AIDS to the U.S.; Brazil, the only South American country
covered in the eradication campaign, has the highest incidence of
AIDS in that region."
The pollution of vaccine, including the
Salk vaccine for polio is
extensively covered in a video by Dr. Eva Snead entitled AIDS: The
Other Side Of The Story.
She reveals how the polio vaccine prior to
1962 was known to be contaminated with SV-40 (simian virus 40). This
virus contaminated the vaccine because the polio vaccine was grown
on the kidney cells of monkeys and simian or monkey virus
contaminated the vaccine that was given to the public.
also points out that research has shown that SV-40 is ideally suited
for genetic manipulation, splicing and the creation of hybrids or
mutants. Since it is known that the AIDS virus, or HTLV-III has
created many mutant strains since its original discovery, there is a
possible connection between the SV-40 virus, and contamination of
the widely - and mandatorily - given polio vaccines. Again, the
information of the contamination of the polio vaccine with a
dangerous simian virus was withheld from the public, though the
government was well aware of this fact.
The government would have us believe that
AIDS started in the
homosexual population and has been spread likewise.
To help create
this reality, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) set up an
inoculation program in 1978 that targeted the homosexual population.

for a hepatitis vaccine study. It was to be administered to
non-monogamous homosexual males between the ages of 20 and 40.
were over 1000 inoculated. Dr. Alan Cantwell reports in his book
AIDS And The Doctors Of Health that,
"newly liberated homosexuals
were anxious to cooperate with the government in matters of gay
health ... Within a decade, most of the men in the experiment would
be doomed to die."
The CDC admitted in 1984 that at least 60 percent
of those who received the hepatitis vaccine were infected with
They have since refused to give any more information on the subject.
In a 1959 lecture delivered in Santa Barbara, California, Aldous
Huxley said, in part:
"In general, one can say that it is only when human beings are
threatened by somebody else that they are ready to unite and to
accept short-range privations for long-range goods; they are ready
to unite under the threat of war and catastrophe. Undoubtedly, the
best thing for world government under law would be invasion from Mars.
Unfortunately, this is rather unlikely to take place. But is
it possible to persuade ourselves that after all human beings are
their own Martians, that with over-population and over-organization
and over-technicalization, we are committing immense aggressions
against ourselves? Can we unite against ourselves for our own higher
It might be possible, that what we regard as a piping time
of peace is not, in fact, a piping time of peace, but that there is
a real threat overhanging us all the time against remote
speculation, but it is possible that some such argument might
finally persuade people to take the step of getting together and
forming a government in which all should live together under law."
THE GLOBAL 2000 REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
ENTERING THE 21ST CENTURY
[Quoting, through several subsections:]
COMMISSION ON POPULATION GROWTH AND THE AMERICAN FUTURE (1970)
In July 1969 President Nixon sent to Congress a historic first
population message, recommending the establishment by legislation of
a blue-ribbon commission to examine the growth of the nation’s
population and the impact it will have on the American future.
D. Rockefeller III, who had started the Population Council, had been
urging since the early days of the Eisenhower Administration that
such a commission be established. Lyndon Johnson had refused to see
Rockefeller in 1964, but by 1968, he was ready to yield to pressure
and established the President’s Committee on Population and Family
Planning: The Transition from Concern to Action, suggested the
establishment of a presidential commission to give the problem
It recommended that family planning services be
extended to every American woman unable to afford them. It also
recommended an increase in the budgets of HEW and the Office of
Economic Opportunity for the purpose of population research. The
report was released without publicity in January 1969, just before
Johnson left office. He did not meet with the Committee to receive
the report, nor make a statement on it.
In early 1969, Rockefeller’s pressure for a presidential commission
was abetted by presidential counselor Moynihan, who convinced Nixon
that the time had come to face the problems of population. The
President asked in his message to Congress that a Commission be
assigned to develop population projections and estimate the impact
of an anticipated 100 million increase in U.S. population by the
For the interim, the President called for more research
"on birth control methods" and for the establishment, as a national
goal, of "the provision of adequate family planning services within
the next five years for all those who want them but cannot afford
In his message to Congress, Nixon stated:
One of the most serious challenges to human destiny in the last
third of this century will be the growth of the population. Whether
man’s response to that challenge will be a cause for pride or for
despair in the year 2000 will depend very much on what we do today.
If we now begin our work in an appropriate manner, and if we
continue to devote a considerable amount of attention and energy to
this problem, then mankind will be able to surmount this challenge
as it has surmounted so many during the long march of civilization.
When the Congress passed a bill in March 1970 creating the
Commission on Population Growth and the American Future,
Nixon named John D. Rockefeller III chairman of the 24-member group.
The Commission’s conclusion was that no substantial benefits would
result from continued growth of the nation’s population.
"The population problem, and the growth ethic with which it is
intimately connected, reflect deeper external conditions and more
fundamental political, economic, and philosophical values.
Consequently, to improve the quality of our existence while slowing
growth, will require nothing less than a basic recasting of American
The more than 60 Population Commission recommendations included:
Creation of an Office of Population Growth and Distribution within
the Executive Office of the President
Establishment, within the National Institutes of Health, of a
National Institute of Population Sciences to provide an adequate
institutional framework for implementing a greatly expanding program
of population research
Legislation by Congress establishing a Council of Social Advisers,
with one of the main functions the monitoring of demographic

These recommendations were overshadowed, at least in the publicity
given them, by the recommendations that states adopt legislation
"to receive contraceptive and prophylactic
information and services in appropriate settings sensitive to their
needs and concerns" and "that present state laws restricting
abortion be liberalized along the lines of the New York statute,
such abortion to be performed on request by the duty licensed
physicians under conditions of medical safety."
The Commission also
recommended that abortion be covered by health insurance benefits,
and that established federal, state, and local governments make
funds available to support abortion in states with liberalized
President Nixon was unhappy with the Commission report, released in
March 1972 at the beginning of his re-election campaign, largely
because of the recommendations on liberalized abortion and the
furnishing of contraceptives to teenagers (which in 1972 was a
bigger issue than abortion).
The President met only a few minutes
with Mr. Rockefeller. He perfunctorily received the Commission
report, but issued a statement repudiating it. No word of support
was forthcoming for the stabilized population concept that he had
backed in 1969.
Although all members of the Commission showed their support for the
report by signing it, several members wrote minority statements
about certain recommendations, especially the one on abortion. The
Commission debated whether to finesse the two controversial issues,
since these recommendations were not of major demographic
importance. But Chairman Rockefeller felt it was only right that the
majority of the Commission be able to state an opinion on all
The timing of the report was unfortunate in that during the three
years since Nixon’s population message, the public had come to agree
on stabilizing population growth, and the goal of the two-children
family was already being achieved in the statistics.
No recommendations were made by the Commission in the resources and
The deputy director of the Population Commission staff,
Parke, felt that the report and the research volumes made a strong
base for future efforts at meeting population growth problems.
he believed the Commission and its staff had learned at least one
valuable lesson: A commission studying a controversial subject
should not publish its report during a presidential campaign.
NATIONAL COMMISSION ON MATERIALS POLICY (1970)
Congress legislated a New National Commission on Materials Policy in
the fall of 1970 as a part of the Resources Recovery Act.
The Materials Policy Commission did not attempt a materials
resources inventory and update of the Paley Commission but rather
concentrated its attention on the policy area and emphasized the
environmental aspects of resources problems, an area which the Paley
Commission had ignored. The new Commission contracted for a study of
the estimated demand for 10 commodities by the year 2000.
The major recommendations of the Commission, when it reported to the
President and Congress in June 1973, were mostly general policy
"Strike a balance between the need to produce goods and the need to
protect the environment by modifying the materials system so that
all resources, including environmental, are paid for by users.
Strive for an equilibrium between the supply of materials and the
demand for their use by increasing primary materials production and
by conserving materials through accelerated waste recycling and
greater efficiency-of-use of materials.

effectively by recognizing the complex interrelationships of the
materials-energy-environment system so that laws, executive
orders, and administrative practices reinforce policy and not
INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR APPLIED SYSTEMS ANALYSIS (1972)
A unique institute with a holistic approach to common problems that
cannot be solved by any single country alone is the International
Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).
The Institute is
situated near Vienna, Austria, and supports about 100 research
scientists. It is considered non-governmental because its members
are scientific institutions from the participating nations and not
the political entities of the governments themselves. It was founded
in October 1972 on the initiative of the academies of science or
equivalent institutions in 12 industrial nations, both East and West
(institutions from five other countries have since joined the

The results of studies are widely communicated
through publications distributed by members scientific institutions,
and an effort is made to inform the non-expert of the results of
studies of international problems.
Two current major global projects are on energy systems and on food
and agriculture. The energy project is concentrating on finding
strategies for the transition over the next 15 to 50 years from an
energy economy based on oil, gas, and conventional coal to an
economy based on the virtually inexhaustible resources - solar,
nuclear, and geothermal - as well as to some extent on new sources

studies, such as one that projects global energy demand with regard
to the development of regions, world population growth, and changes
in life-style; and a study of strategies relating the nuclear-risk
problem to decision-making. The final energy project report is
expected in 1979.
Although IIASA is composed of scientific representatives from
industrial nations, the food and agriculture program is concerned
also with a number of less developed countries (LDCs) that have
agricultural economies. The program objectives are to evaluate the
nature and dimensions of the world food situation, to study
alternative policy actions at the national, regional, and global
level that may alleviate existing and emerging food problems, and to
determine how to meet the nutritional needs of the growing global
Typical projects include developing a model of the dynamic
interdependence between migration and human settlement patterns and
agricultural technology, identifying and measuring the environmental
consequences of water use in agriculture as constraints on
agricultural structures of some pilot LDCs - describing their
agricultural policy objectives and devising planning models suitable
for estimating the consequences of alternative national policies.
NATIONAL COMMISSION ON SUPPLIES AND
ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON NATIONAL GROWTH POLICY PROCESSES (1975)
Another Nixon-Ford era initiative in the materials field with a
major institutional objective was the National Commission on
Supplies and Shortages and its separate Advisory Committee on
National Growth Policy Processes. These activities, like the 1971-73
National Commission on Materials Policy, were conceived by Congress.
The Commission did not attempt any new data collection or make
supply-and-demand projections into the future. Instead it analyzed
available information, concluding that "we see little reason to fear
that the world will run out of natural resources during the [next]
The Commission’s report, Government and the Nation’s Resources, was
released the first week of 1977.
In its report to the President and Congress, the Advisory Committee
urged that the nation become not a planned society, but a planning
society. Adequate and open planning for the future would result in
less government interference, and the necessary government
intervention would be more considered, more timely, and less
The report’s prime recommendation was for the
institutionalization of the planning process in an independent
executive branch agency to be created by Congress and called the
National Growth and Development Commission.
The new Commission would
have the mandate "to examine emerging issues of middle-to-long-range
growth and development, and to suggest feasible alternatives for the
Congress, the President, and the public."
[Still quoting from The
Global 2000 Report
to the President of the
United States - Entering the 21st Century, published in 1980:]
For the past 70 years the nation’s leadership has perceived
periodically a need for long-term analysis of problems relating to
natural resources, population, or the environment.
For the most
part, these issues have been addressed on an ad hoc basis by
appointing presidential commissions and other temporary groups to
study the situation, make their reports, and then disband. As a
result, decision-makers continue to deal primarily with immediate
problems, while consideration of how to prepare for conditions that
might exist 10, 20, or 30 years in the future is postponed for lack
of adequate or systematic information on the options available and
on the social, economic, and environmental impacts of alternative
Future-oriented commissions or study groups have generally studied
natural resources problems separately from problems related to
population and the environment. There has been insufficient
recognition of the interrelation of these three issues. Each
succeeding year, as the problems become more complex and the
interrelationships more involved, the need for a holistic approach
to decision-making becomes more urgent.
Most analyses of future problems in population, natural resources,
and the environment have been made only on a national basis.
President Truman recognized the need for assessing global
implications of natural resources when he constructed his Materials
Policy Commission in 1951 to make its study of materials policy
international in scope, at least to the extent of considering the
needs and resources of friendly nations.
But while the harmful
effects of population growth, resource consumption, and pollution
spread across borders and oceans, the international approach to
long-range planning for solutions to these problems continues to be
When commissions or other bodies have been formed to consider
long-term problems in population, natural resources, and the
environment, their effectiveness has been hampered by lack of
provisions for following up on their recommendations. In several
cases the heads of commissions felt so strongly about the need for
ongoing institutions that they set up private organizations on their
own to follow up with their group’s recommendations, which have lead
to some efforts of ongoing analysis.
One recommendation has been made by virtually every presidential
commission on population, natural resources, or the environment: the
establishment of a permanent body somewhere high in the executive
branch for performing continuous future research and analysis.
Although ideas for location of such a permanent group have varied,
proposals have generally indicated that a statutorily created
institution with access to the President could explore potential
goals, watch for trends, and look at alternative possibilities for
accomplishing stilted objectives.
A permanent institution would have much more freedom in choosing the
moment to present new ideas, and thus avoid the timing and
politics-related problems that have often hindered activities of
temporary presidential commissions.
The interest of a President or
Congress or the public proved to be much greater at the time a study
is started than when it is completed - The Materials Policy
Commission was appointed by President Truman in January 1951, when
military involvement in Korea had reintroduced fears of shortages
that were still fresh in the minds of administrators and the public
following World War II.
But when the Commission’s report went to the
President in June 1952, the scarcity issue had lost its priority and
public concern. When President Nixon sent a message to Congress in
1969 asking for creation of a commission to study population growth,
the subject was politically attractive inasmuch as people were
concerned about rising birthrates.
But by the time the Population
Commission’s report was submitted, statistics showed that the
birthrate in the nation had already declined to a stability rate -
two children per family - and the subject had less political
Another unfavorable timing factor was that the report
was sent to the President at the start of his 1972 re-election
campaign; some of the Commission’s recommendations raised
controversy, causing the President to repudiate the Commission’s
work. On the other hand, the release of the report of the Outdoor
Recreation Resources Review Commission came at a time when the
popularity of outdoor recreation was booming, and Congress welcomed
help in devising solutions to the problems connected with the
growing recreation use of public lands, national parks, and national
Another problem of timing was the frequent long delays
between the request for a commission and its creation, or between
the time the law was passed and the President appointed the public
members. Sometimes the period allowed for a study was too short, as
with the preparation of Toward a Social Report. That study also ran
into a frequent timing problem: having been started by one
President, the study is then submitted either at the end of his term
or to his successor.
For all these reasons, many observers have urged the establishment
by law of a permanent group in Executive Office of the President to
institutionalize the coordination of long-term global and holistic
considerations of population, resources, environment, and their
MAJOR FINDINGS AND CONCLUSIONS IN THE GLOBAL 2000 REPORT
If present trends continue, the world in 2000 will be more crowded,
more polluted, less stable economically, and more vulnerable to
disruption than the world we live in now.
Serious stresses involving
population, resources, and environment are clearly visible ahead.
Despite greater material output, the world’s people will be poorer
in many ways than they are today.
For hundreds of millions of the desperately poor, the outlook for
food and other necessities of life will be no better. For many it
will be worse. Barring revolutionary advances in technology, life
for most people on Earth will be more precarious in 2000 than it is
now - unless the nations of the world act decisively to alter
This, in essence, is the picture emerging from the U.S. Government’s
projections of probable changes in world population, resources, and
environment by the end of the century, as presented in the
Global 2000 Report. They do not predict what will occur. Rather, they depict
conditions that are likely to develop if there are no changes in
public policies, institutions, or rates of technological advance,
and if there are no wars or other major disruptions. A keener
awareness of the nature of the current trends, however, may induce
changes that will alter these trends and the projected outcome.
Rapid growth in world population will hardly have altered by 2000.
The world’s population will grow from 4 billion in 1975 to 6.35
billion in 2000, an increase of more than 50 percent. Ninety percent
of this growth will occur in the poorest countries.
World food production is projected to increase 90 percent over the
30 years from 1970 to 2000. At the same time, real prices for food
are expected to double.
Arable land will increase only 4 percent by 2000, so that most of
the increased output of food will have to come from higher yields.
Most of the elements that now contribute to higher yields -
fertilizer, pesticides, power for irrigation, and fuel for machinery
- depend heavily on oil and gas.
During the 1990s world oil production will approach geological
estimates of maximum production capacity, even with rapidly
increasing petroleum prices. The Study projects that the richer
industrialized nations will be able to command enough oil and other
commercial energy supplies to meet rising demands through 1990. With
the expected price increases, many less developed countries will
have increasing difficulties meeting energy needs.
one-quarter of humankind that depends primarily on wood for fuel,
the outlook is bleak. Needs for fuel-wood will exceed available
supplies by about 25 percent before the turn of the century.
While the world’s finite fuel resources - coal, oil, gas shale, tar
sands and uranium - are theoretically sufficient for centuries, they
are not evenly distributed; they pose difficult economic and
environmental problems; and they vary greatly in their amenability
to exploitation and use.
Non-fuel mineral resources generally appear sufficient to meet
projected demands through 2000, but further discoveries and
investments will be needed to maintain reserves. In addition,
production costs will increase with energy prices and may make some
non-fuel mineral resources uneconomic. The quarter of the world’s
population that inhabits industrial countries will continue to
absorb three-fourths of the world’s mineral production.
Regional water shortages will become more severe. In the 1970-2000
period population growth alone will cause requirements for water to
double in nearly half the world. Still greater increases would be
needed to improve standards of living. In many LDCs, water supplies
will become increasingly erratic by 2000 as a result of extensive
deforestation. Development of new water supplies will become more
costly virtually everywhere.
Significant losses of world forests will continue over the next 20
years as demand for forest products and fuel-wood increases.
Serious deterioration of agricultural soils will occur worldwide,
due to erosion, loss of organic matter, desertification,
salinization, alkalinization, and water-logging. Already, an area of
cropland and grassland approximately the size of Maine is becoming
barren wasteland each year, and the spread of desert-like conditions
is likely to accelerate.
Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and ozone-depleting
chemicals are expected to increase at rates that could alter the
world’s climate and upper atmosphere significantly by 2050. Acid
rain from increased combustion of fossil fuels (especially coal)
threatens damage to lakes, soils, and crops. Radioactive and other
hazardous materials present health and safety problems in increasing
numbers of countries.
Extinctions of plant and animal species will increase dramatically.
The future depicted by the U.S. Government projections, briefly
outlined above, may actually understate the impending problems.
At present and projected growth rates, the world’s population would
reach 10 billion by 2030 and would approach 30 billion by the end of
the twenty-first century. These levels correspond closely to
estimates by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences of the maximum
carrying capacity of the entire planet.
Indeed, the problems of preserving the carrying capacity of the
Earth and sustaining the possibility of a decent life for the human
beings that inhabit it are enormous and close upon us. Yet there is
reason for hope. It must be emphasized that the Global 2000 Study’s
projections are based on the assumption that national policies
regarding population stabilization, resource conservation, and
environmental protection will remain essentially unchanged through
the end of the Century.
The United States, possessing the world’s largest economy, can
expect its policies to have a significant influence on global
trends. An equally important priority for the United States is to
cooperate generously and justly with other nations - particularly in
the areas of trade, investment, and assistance - in seeking
solutions to the many problems that extend beyond our national
With its limitations and rough approximations, the
Global 2000 Study
may be seen as no more than a reconnaissance of the future;
nonetheless its conclusions are reinforced by similar findings of
other recent global studies that were examined in the course of the
Global 2000 Study. All these studies are in general agreement on the
nature of the problems and on the threats they pose to the future
welfare of humankind.
The available evidence leaves no doubt that
the world - including this Nation - faces enormous, urgent, and
complex problems in the decades immediately ahead. Prompt and
vigorous changes in public policy around the world are needed to
avoid or minimize these problems before they become unmanageable.
Long lead times are required for effective action.
If decisions are
delayed until the problems become worse, options for effective
action will be severely reduced.
