End of the Earth in 35 Years – Earth Day 1970 Cartoon

After eugenics became unpopular, it morphed seamlessly into over-population control, which morphed into environmentalism, which morphed into today’s ‘climate change’ hysteria.  Besides the fact that all of the same people are involved (eg, Gaylord Nelson, a founder of Earth Day, cited Harrison Brown, a eugenicist, in defense of his views) and share roughly the same underlying ideological presuppositions, they share the same characteristic flair for asserting that the end of the world is near at hand… unless, of course, society adopts sweeping changes that puts them in charge and gives them even more money and power to combat the problem du juor.  The other thing they have in common is the fact that virtually none of their doomsday prophecies, supposedly based on rock solid science, ever come true.  Here is a cartoon associated with the original, 1970s Earth Day.  Better pat yourself to make sure you’re still alive…

    Dr. Harrison Brown was a one-of-a-kind researcher and environmental realist, regarding earth’s limited resources. He was NOT a population control expert or a eugenicist! He was a physicist! He did not want to eradicate our population, but protect and prolong it! His amazing contributions to material science should NEVER be undervalued or devalued by his extreme ideas regarding our explosive population growth. He was way ahead of his time; and, had we listened to him, our current earth problems would be much less.

    Harrison Brown was a eugenicist:

    “Such steps would undoubtedly contribute substantially to a slowing down of species deterioration. But it is clear that they would by no means be sufficient. A broad eugenics program would have to be formulated which would aid in the establishment of policies that would encourage able and healthy person to have several offspring and discourage the unfit from breeding at excessive rates. Here, of course, we encounter numerous difficulties – what would constitute “fit” and what would constitute “unfit”? Where is the boundary between the mentally deficient person and the genius?”

    Of course he didn’t want to eradicate our population. Few eugenicists ever did. They just want to get rid of the weak and feeble, one way or the other. In whose opinion weak and feeble? A hard question, as Brown so graciously concedes. What a guy.
