Eugenics is the idea of breeding humans; whether by favouring some groups or denying others to procreate.

Eugenics in the US

Eugenics was/is a project of the US ruling class to try to secure privilege.[1] The motivation to better the health and intelligence of people with the attempt to guide procreation may in itself not be objectionable to many people. However, the underlying motivation of some apologist for Eugenics is probably well expressed with this quote from someone who lived before the inception of the modern Eugenics movement:

“You will do well to try to inoculate the Indians by means of Blanketts, as well as to try every other Method that can serve to Extirpate this Excerable Race. I should be very glad (if) your scheme for hunting them down by Dogs could take effect ... I would rather chuse the liberty to kill any savage that may come in our way, than to be perpetually doubtful whether they are Friends or Foes ...”
Jeffrey Amherst [2]

This sentence in a letter by Amherst shows his attitude towards enemy's in what he considered warfare, but it stands to reason that this position extended more or less to all he considered undesirable. It also is an example of the thinking and ethos of those who shape American policy, a policy of extermination that continues to this day.

The English eugenics movement promoted eugenics through selective breeding for positive traits (which were to be found in England’s upper classes). In contrast, the eugenics movement in the US focused on eliminating “undesirable” traits that were concentrated in poor, uneducated, and minority populations. In an attempt to prevent these groups from propagating, eugenicists helped drive legislation for their forced sterilization.[3] California was considered an epicenter of the American eugenics movement.[4] It received extensive financing from the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune.[5]

The ideas of the Eugenic movement and the discussion about positive and destructive traits is continued with Genetics. On a more practical level by Planned Parenthood, which is building it's surgical abortion facilities within walking distance of minority neighborhoods.[6]

Eugenics and mRNA vaccination

Full article: Vaccination

According to Wodarg [7] the modern messenger RNA technique of vaccination carries the risk of modifying not only ordinary cells but also germ cells. From the POV of Eugenics, however, this would be a desirable outcome: it may be possible to introduce gene modifications in future generations or force sterilization.

Vaccination has been repeatedly used for unethical (forced) sterilization, supported by the foundations of Bill Gates, Rockefeller, Ford and others.

Eugenics in Nazi-Germany

In an effort in human breeding by selection, any other humans except those with blond hair and blue eyes should be prevented from procreation. As in the case of native Americans, killing those others was rationalized by social darwinism as well as forced sterilization and abortion. Forced twinning breeding experiments were conducted by Josef Mengele in Ausschwitz. He has continued these experiments after the war in South America.[8]

Transhumanism“The GenRich—who account for ten percent of the American population—[will] all carry synthetic genes. All aspects of the economy, the media, the entertainment industry, and the knowledge industry are controlled by members of the GenRich class…

“Naturals [unaltered humans] work as low-paid service providers or as laborers. [Eventually] the GenRich class and the Natural class will become entirely separate species with no ability to crossbreed, and with as much romantic interest in each other as a current human would have for a chimpanzee.

“Many think that it is inherently unfair for some people to have access to technologies that can provide advantages while others, less well-off, are forced to depend on chance alone, [but] American society adheres to the principle that personal liberty and personal fortune are the primary determinants of what individuals are allowed and able to do.

“Indeed, in a society that values individual freedom above all else, it is hard to find any legitimate basis for restricting the use of repro[grammed]-genetics. I will argue [that] the use of reprogenetic technologies is inevitable. [W]hether we like it or not, the global marketplace will reign supreme.”
