Eugenics and Euthenics

In 1960, A.J. Liebling tossed off one of his most memorable lines. In his May 14 column, in the New Yorker, Liebling wrote: “Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one.” Even back then, in the face of corporate takeovers of newspapers and layoffs of hundreds of journalists, he worried that the power of the press was being concentrated in too few hands. Today it is estimated that about seven hundred billionaires control the information flow to three-hundred and thirty-million people in the United States.

As I was capping off 2021, with a brief bout of Omicron, I had time to think about the phrasing our press uses with respect to that variant, and what they habitually call “break through infections.” Thanks to my three doses of an mRNA vaccine, my natural immunity was augmented and informed on precisely how to recognize and combat the COVID-19 virus.

Because the press is so imprecise about what it means when one gets infected despite being vaccinated, people think that the vaccines don’t work and that is probably a reasonable inference. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Unless an infection is present, there is really nothing for the immune system to do. It can only mitigate damages from such an infection once the infection is detected. Vaccinated or not, if you inhale the infection, you are infected. Sooo, use of the term “breakthrough” is actively promoting the erroneous idea that a vaccine is a barrier. That’s simply not how it works. An mRNA vaccine informs the immune system by means of it’s messaging.

Intellectually undisciplined and integrity challenged bloviators have also exploited the misconception many people have about bacterial infections, as opposed to viral infections. Accordingly, they confuse the role of antibiotics and vaccines. They lead the incurious to equate the two and engage in hearsay based upon the bloviator’s erroneous or intentionally misleading conclusions. 

Now you may ask yourself what might motivate an excessively prominent influencer to mislead their followers. And it is, perhaps, not comforting when one realizes that he or she is being played for a fool. Consider how those, the most entitled at the commanding heights of the world’s power dynamics, think of what they view as the “great unwashed.” Is it beyond the realm of possibility that they actually want someone, that’s foolish enough to take Ivermectin for COVID, to self-sterilize?

Now you may be inclined to dismiss this as one of many wild conspiracy theories that are currently in vogue. Still, at this juncture, I am inclined to believe that at least some of the following quotes, by well known individuals, will surprise you.

Theodore Roosevelt said “society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind.” And, Herbert Hoover said “There shall be no child in America that had not the complete birthright of a sound mind in a sound body.” Oliver Wendell Holmes, the justice who wrote the Supreme Court’s 1927 Buck v. Bell decision, also wrote “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. … Three generations of imbeciles are enough.” 

Adolf Hitler took note of these American sentiments when he said “There is today one state in which at least weak beginnings toward a better conception are noticeable. Of course, it is not our model German Republic, but the American Union.” Winston Churchill had advocated for sterilization and compulsory labor camps for mental defectives in 1911. In that vein he said “The unnatural and increasingly rapid growth of the Feeble-Minded and Insane classes … constitutes a national and race danger which it is impossible to exaggerate.” 

Other influencers such as George Bernard Shaw supported this line of reasoning when he said “We should find ourselves committed to killing a great many people whom we now leave living, and to leave living a great many people whom we at present kill. . . . A great many people would have to be put out of existence simply because it wastes other people’s time to look after them.” Even the words of Helen Keller will surprise many for she said “Our puny sentimentalism has caused us to forget that a human life is sacred only when it may be of some use to itself and to the world.” 

Margaret Sanger aligned her fight for contraception with that of the eugenics movement. She stated that “birth control is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit [and] of preventing the birth of defectives.” W. E. B. Du Bois, the African-American activist and writer, promoted marriage and reproduction of the most desirable group while breeding out the least.

The most boisterous of the know-it-alls, through their abysmal ignorance, are self-selecting to breed out the least fit voluntarily. By taking their Ivermectin and trans-femme cocktails, they are sterilizing themselves. And that is precisely what the Tucker Carlson types want them to do.
