Don't take my word for it, research yourself!!

This book support not just abortion, but its imposition to women with undesirable characters; mainly poverty.
Dalton C. Rocha
That shouldn't be a problem right, I mean if it's such a big issue?

Forced abortions. Mass sterilization. A "Planetary Regime" with the power of life and death over American citizens.

The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both?

These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology -- informally known as the United States' Science Czar. In this book Holdren co-authored in 1977, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote that:

* Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;

* The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food;

* Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise;

* People who "contribute to social deterioration" (i.e. undesirables) "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" -- in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.

* A transnational "Planetary Regime" should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans' lives -- using an armed international police force.

Impossible, you say? That must be an exaggeration or a hoax. No one in their right mind would say such things. [...]

It staggers me how people can be apologists for this filthy peice of scum Holdren, and his best pal Obama. There is no overpopulation problem you idiot commenters! In most nations the reproductive rate is well below what is nessicary to sustain a population. If you truly believe we have an overpopulation problem, do us a favor and start with removing yourselves from the equation. That shouldn't be a problem right, I mean if it's such a big issue? This agenda is well under way, with GMO's, fluoride in the water, vaccines (watch Bill Gate's "innovating to zero" he says, "if we do a really good job" then references abortions and vaccines). And you idiots, like the commenter talking about how Holdren was a "young acidemic" when he wrote this love letter to Mengele. Do you actually believe when Holdren references poor gene pools he isn't talking about you as well? We're all in this together you're not part of the 0.1%, Ted Turner says "95% of people should be killed" that's you, and everyone you know and ever will know. The truth of the matter is that people like Gates, Holdren, Turner, Sanger, Royal family, Rothchild's aren't only degenerate but have been inbred for many generations. When a horribly inbred immoral individual such as Holdren observes the tenacity and will to thrive that exists in us "low born individuals" they conflagrate with evny. As a result if that envy, we get to read treatises on criminal insanity such as the Democratic party's seminal "Eco Science". Believe what you will, I always recomend one to always follow your instincts as I do. If you continue to believe Obama loves you and cares about your well being you need only read the writing of the man who's "Council he looks forward to".

Here in Brazil, I tried to read online this trash-book. This book support not just abortion, but its imposition to women with undesirable characters; mainly poverty. Beyond doubt this is a Eugenics' book, book but Eugenics has new names in this book: malthusianism and ecology. In this trash-book, "Inferior race" is called "over population" and Eugenics is called malthusianism and ecology.

I have been deeply concerned about so-called 'environmentalism' for some time now, about what I could sense was an 'anti human' mindset that seemed to occupy so many of these people.

I watched some YouTube video's where this work is discussed by Webster Tarpley and thought that I would obtain this book myself and read it.

My copy of this book arrived a few weeks ago and I spent several weekends reading every word, chapter and recommendation.

I must admit, this is one of the most deeply disturbing, horrifying texts I have ever read.

Simply put, this book describes a future vision for the world that now exists within China; a world of forced sterilisations, forced abortions, eugenics, incredibly powerful central governments, carbon taxes, poisoned food and water supplies pumped full of highly toxic sterilisation agents...the list goes on and on. The book reads like some crazed Nazi fantasy, what is even more horrifying is that it was written and openly published in academia by people such as Holden whom now hold such highly esteemed positions in government and academia.

The environmental movement has morphed into a hard-core Malthusian Eugenics movement that sees humanity as the ultimate enemy of the planet, something to be managed and - where necessary - culled.

If you have ever wanted to know the deepest thoughts of the environmental movement, then this book lays them all bare for you to read.

This book is your wake up call.
