Official Stories Chapter Excerpt – Survival of the Fittest

A preview of “Official Stories,” from Ch. 8 “Darwin is Dead.” What is Darwinism? What does it actually offer? Is it a science, or a philosophy? We’ll explore the question – and get some hard answers in the book.

 

Survival of the Fittest

by Liam Scheff, from “Official Stories.”

We have grown up with the expression. We use it when we see someone fail at something so miserably, so spectacularly, that we can only acknowledge the triumph of disaster. It is the phrase that college boys use to mock a fraternity brother who falls down the stairs drunk, or leaps off a hotel balcony into a pool below, hitting the diving board on the way down, breaking some number of bones in the process, having consumed more alcohol than is almost physically possible.

“Survival of the fittest!” The phrase is now commonplace. It has been employed in schoolyards, by scientists and leaders of nations, alike. Its philosophy has been embraced by the likes of Mao Tse Tung, Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler. Which should bother people, but doesn’t. So, what does it mean?

Darwin saw that the island finches were different, slightly. Some had longer beaks, some shorter. Some birds were a little taller, larger or smaller, with a little more or less of a wingspan. Some really hated “Sex and the City” while some found it tolerable, though it really described the lives of the gay men who wrote the show more than actual women in New York. I mean, come on, a new guy every week? That’s boy’s town.

Because Darwin had to exclude the idea that things had always been this way and that these changes had been made by magic, or a god or spirit, he had to come up with a naturalistic explanation. And he tried. He called it “natural selection,” which is pretty tricky. Because it turns the old Christian God into “nature,” and makes you think that it didn’t. But almost no one noticed, because they so wanted to get rid of the damned Church, meddling in everybody’s bloody business.

I mean, really. Burnings at the stake, witch-huntings, endless taxation. Scandal after scandal with the clergy. Some of the monasteries were more like jelly-making whorehouses than places of reflection and worship. “Screw them,” said the new scientific elite. “We’ll support the best contender, even if it is a dog.”

And here it is: “Natural selection” and “survival of the fittest.” Let’s unspool it in a little dialog I call, “Define your terms.” Continue reading Official Stories Chapter Excerpt – Survival of the Fittest

The 11th Commandment – AIDS, Sex and Society

RTB: Liam Scheff Interview on Fintan Dunne’s AIDS is Over.com

by Liam Scheff

In August of 2008, I gave an interview to Fintan Dunne of Breakfornews.com and AIDSisover.com. We discussed the religious/cult dynamic of the AIDS industry and the catch-22 in which those who uncritically accept the paradigm find themselves. We went over the events of the Incarnation Children’s Center, briefly, before turning to recent admission by the World Health Organization that AIDS is, once again, predicted to be specifically confined to the African and Gay populations. The following is an edited transcript of that conversation.

The AIDS Apartheidists Attack House of Numbers

For General Release:
House of Numbers is a new film which does good investigative journalism in researching the nature of the AIDS industry. The film reveals deep-seated corruption within an industry that now has total control of the lives of tens of millions worldwide.

Have you ever heard of an investigation of the AIDS industry?

No, because the AIDS industry uses the fear-based and hate-fueled tactics of dangerous activists, not the open dialog of science, to force its agenda down the throats of millions worldwide. The individuals in charge of this massive propaganda attack are the AIDS Apartheidists.

What is an AIDS Apartheidist? It is a pharmaceutical activist intent on suppressing the Black population of Africa, the Gay population of the West, with a sex-death diagnosis based on over-applied and faulty tests, called “HIV tests,” which react with almost every recorded illness that occurs in people of poverty.

Sterilizing the Poor in the Modern Era: Laparoscopic Sterilization in Camps

RTB: The worldwide push to limit sexual reproduction in poor countries is hidden from Western view; it does not occur in plain sight in the US or Europe, but it does in India and Asia.

Laparoscopic sterilization in camps and institutional set-up. J Postgrad Med 1985;31:20
Mhatre PN, Parulekar SV, Purandare VN.

:: Introduction

Voluntary sterilization is possibly the most popular method of fertility control all over the world. Laparoscopic sterilization of women would appear to be the method of choice of achieving voluntary sterilization. We wish to record, in this paper, out experience of laparoscopic sterilization in the K.E.M. Hospital and in camps conducted by the staff of the Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of the K.E.M. Hospital in the State of Maharashtra.

The Sterilization of America: A Cautionary History

RTB: “Eugenics, a word all but removed from America’s lexicon after World War II, is the science of improving the human race through controlled breeding.”

The Sterilization of America: A Cautionary History

    “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.”

    Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., in Buck v. Bell, 1927

Eugenics, a word all but removed from America’s lexicon after World War II, is the “science” of improving the human race through controlled breeding. Much like the Trail of Tears, Tuskegee medical experiments, or the Japanese internment in this country, the word harkens us back to a shameful time most would just as soon forget.

Indian Sterilization Camp Photos – by Nick Rain

RTB: Sterilization camps and programs are an often-hidden but widely funded and enacted part of the long 20th Century’s attention to reducing populations in poor, non-European countries, and then, among the poor and indigent, or any others considered ‘undesirable’ or lower-class in Europe and America.

India. In a remote part of India on the border with Nepal a local clinic managed to convince the local tribal women to come on mass to undergo sterilization to combat poverty. The women however were not aware how the crude operation would be carried out.

The Temptation of Totalitarian Birth Control

Human Nature, Slate.com

People in a democratic country wouldn’t let their government restrict family size … would they?

Yes, they would. Agence France Presse reports:

More than 80 percent of Filipinos support family planning and almost half believe the government should limit the number of children a couple can have, according to a survey released here Monday. … 44 percent believed that “the government should pass a law specifying the number of children.” Continue reading The Temptation of Totalitarian Birth Control

Norplant: A New Contraceptive with the Potential for Abuse

ACLU (1/31/1994)

What Is Wrong With Using Norplant As A Condition Of Sentencing Or Welfare Benefits?


What Is Norplant?

Norplant is a new contraceptive that became commercially available in the United States in February, 1991, after its approval by the Food and Drug Administration. Norplant consists of six matchstick-size silicone capsules that are inserted in a woman’s upper arm. The capsules release small amounts of progestin over five years and must be inserted and removed by a trained medical professional. Norplant is an extremely effective contraceptive. Women using the drug have an annual pregnancy rate of less than 1% over a five-year period.

A majority of women using Norplant experience some side effects, such as irregular bleeding and other menstrual changes, headaches, weight changes, and acne. Norplant poses particular health risks for women who are overweight, who smoke, or who have diabetes or heart or circulation problems.

Sterilization of girls with intellectual disabilities in Thailand

DPI-AP
2008 News item

A number of women with intellectual disabilities are sterilized in their adolescence in Thailand. There is no legal basis for this. It seems many medical professionals, as a standard practice, advise parents of girls with intellectual disabilities to have their children sterilized and many parents follow this advice.

Sterilization Effects (Thailand)

Abstract

For many years, female sterilization by tubal occlusion has been practiced in developing countries. To date, there has been little research into possible side effects resulting from this procedure. This project will enable the Chulalongkorn Hospital Medical School of Thailand to investigate any abnormal ovarian disturbances and uterine bleeding caused by this method of sterilization.

Quinacrine sterilization (QS) experience in The Philippines: a preliminary report

ALFONSO L. A. (1) ; ALBANO H. A. (1) ;
(1) Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, College of Medicine, Southwestern University, Cebu City, Cebu, PHILIPPINES

Objective: The first clinical trial of Quinacrine Sterilization (QS) in the Philippines was undertaken in Cebu City on January 10, 2000, to evaluate the acceptability, safety, effectiveness and side effects of this technology. We intend to recruit 500 patients to utilize this technique for limiting family size. For the purposes of this report, our cut-off date is April 11, 2003. Methods: Over more than two years, QS was performed on 36 volunteer patients. After careful explanation of the procedure and given the opportunity to ask questions, they had signed an informed consent. The trial involved transcervical insertion of 252 mg quinacrine in the form of pellets, and placed at the tip of the uterine fundus on two occasions, a month apart.

Eugenic Sterilization and a Qualified Nazi Analogy: The United States and Germany, 1930-1945

André N. Sofair, MD, MPH, and Lauris C. Kaldjian, MD
15 February 2000 | Volume 132 Issue 4 | Pages 312-319

In the United States and Germany before World War II, physicians participated in state-authorized eugenic sterilization programs in an attempt to prevent persons deemed to possess undesirable heritable characteristics from propagating. A comparison of U.S. and German histories reveals similarities that argue against easy dismissal of a Nazi analogy.

Eugenics: The Impulse Never Dies

Counterpunch
March 6, 2000

In Monroe, Louisiana, Kathy Looney, 29, convicted of abusing three of her eight children, was ordered at the end of February to undergo medical sterilization or face lengthy jail time. District Judge Carl V. Sharp issued a 10-year suspended sentence and placed Looney on five years of probation. “I don’t want to have to lock you up to keep you from having any more children, so some kind of medical procedure is needed to make sure you don’t.” Looney’s lawyer asked the judge to reconsider.

The eugenic impulse is always lurking. These days it’s surfacing once again, not only in old-fashioned coercive sterilization such as that imposed by the Louisiana judge but in programs of genetic improvement, using all the new splicing technologies. Know-how, as so often in medicine, sprints ahead of moral considerations. In this context the Annals of Internal Medicine has just published an interesting comparison by Drs André N. Sofair and Lauris C. Kaldjian. of German and US sterilization policies from 1930 to 1945.
