Eugenicist Advising the President?

The previous American Panic Attack post dealt with poisons in our water that adversely affect reproductive health when people are exposed to them. Coincidentally, at around the same time that the story broke, a blogger broke a related story, one that had been hiding in the plain sight for 32 years: A 1,052-page policy manual called “Ecoscience” (link to full text of book) co-authored in 1977 by President Obama’s top science and technology advisor John P. Holdren. (Holdren co-wrote the book with Paul Ehrlich and Anne Ehrlich.)

“Ecoscience” proposes tyrannical (and currently illegal) measures to prevent human overpopulation, one of them being “[a]dding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods”.

Another policy advocated in “Ecoscience” is forced abortions (as performed in Communist China). Speaking of China, Chapter 13 of "Ecoscience" starts with the following quote:

“Of all things people are the most precious.”
-- Mao Tse Tung

Ironic in that Mao holds the title of most prolific mass murderer in modern history, it would be like starting a chapter with a quote from Hitler (who acknowleges his debt of gratitude to American eugenics movement in his book "Mein Kampf").

After the defeat of Nazi Germany, "eugenics" was exposed to the world for what it was: a bogus science used as a pretext for wholesale murder. Re-branded as "Ecoscience" the central conceit remains the same: a cadre of elite scientists and technocrats will decide who gets to live and who gets to die, who gets to have kids, and who will be infertile, to save the earth for whoever is still alive once their "Final Solution" is complete.
