"Engineering Evolution: The Alchemy of Eugenics"
by Phillip D Collins
In the dark past of human civilization, the ruling class controlled humanity largely through religious institutions and mysticism. However, the turn of the century witnessed the epistemic transformation of the elite's religious power structure into a "scientific dictatorship." The history and background of this "scientific dictatorship" is a conspiracy, created and micro-managed through the historical tide of Darwinism, which has its foundations in Freemasonry. In this article, we shall examine the evolutionary alchemy of eugenics, from Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood to William Sims Bainbridge's Transhumanism.
The Alchemical Transformation of Man
A common misnomer that has been circulated by academia's anointed historians is that the alchemists of antiquity were attempting to transform lead into gold. In truth, this was a fiction promulgated by the alchemists themselves to conceal their ultimate objectives . . .the transformation of man into a god. Among one of the various occult organizations that aspired to complete this alchemical mission was Freemasonry. Providing a summation of Masonry's supreme goal, Masonic scholar W.L. Wilmshurst writes:
According to this alchemical mandate, humanity is a gradually developing deity requiring scientific assistance in its evolution. In Mystic Masonry, 32nd degree Mason J.D. Buck reiterates this theme of man as a progressively apotheosizing organism: "Humanity, 'in-toto', then, is the only Personal God" (Buck, p. 136, 1990). Of course, the concept of evolution would later be disseminated on the popular level as Darwinism and become the veritable cornerstone of contemporary science.
Before its popularization, evolutionary theory was the intellectual property of Masonry. Freemason Erasmus Darwin, Charles' grandfather, "originated almost every important idea that has since appeared in evolutionary theory" (Darlington, p. 62, 1959). It is hardly a coincidence that many of Charles Darwin's chief promoters were Freemasons, not the least of which being T.H. Huxley. It is even less of a coincidence that Charles Darwin's cousin, Sir Francis Galton, would become one of the early expediters of Masonry's alchemical agenda.
Eugenics: Alchemically Engineered Apotheosis
Sir Francis Galton could be considered an early evolutionary alchemist. His own cousin's theory of evolution was one of his chief inspirations. In Memories of My Life, Galton wrote:
Viewing evolutionary theory in conjunction with the alchemical mandate for man's consciously engineered apotheosis, one inevitably recognizes a belief system that exhibits all of the characteristics of a religion. This revelation is most clearly illustrated by Galton's statements in Inquiries into Human Faculty and its Development:
That Galton recognized the "religious significance of evolution" is no accident. Throughout the years, this Masonically inspired religion of emergent deities has resurfaced under various appellations. Wagar enumerates its numerous manifestations:
This emergent deity, Man (spelled with a capitalized M to denote his purported divinity), would be fully enthroned through the efforts of alchemists themselves. Galton would reintroduce the concept of alchemy under the appellation of eugenics, a term derived from Greek for "well born." The basic precepts of eugenics were delineated in Galton's Hereditary Genius, a racist polemic advocating a system of selective breeding for the purposes of providing "more suitable races or strains of blood a better chance of prevailing over the less suitable" (Galton, Hereditary Genius, p. 24, 1869). According to Galton, society should be eugenically regimented. The framework of such a society would be a caste system where status was assigned according to genetic superiority. In an article in the January 1873 edition of Fraser's Magazine, Galton stated:
Galton hoped that such societal regimentation would promote "eugenically sound" breeding amongst the citizenry. Summarizing Galton's objectives, Allan Chase explains: "What Galton was talking about here was the power to breed people as we breed pigs" (Chase, p. 101, 1977). Of course, as George Orwell opined in Animal Farm, some pigs are more equal than others. According to Galton's cousin and racialist progenitor, Charles Darwin, the pigs of higher stock were the Anglo-Saxons. This becomes evident in Darwinian Josiah Strong's manifesto, America's Destiny. Quoting Darwin, Strong wrote:
Of course, it comes as no real surprise that such thinking underpinned the racialist policies of Nazi Germany, which was a scientific dictatorship edified by Darwinian evolution. It comes as even less a surprise that Leonard Darwin, son of Charles, was vice-president of both the 1912 and 1921 International Eugenics Congresses. The first of these two meetings was the outgrowth of a 1911 gathering of the International Society for Racial Hygiene, a predominantly German organization. That Germany would see the full enactment of eugenical policies is hardly a coincidence.
Planned Parenthood: The Racist Legacy of Margaret Sanger
Although the Nazis' eugenical Holocaust of WWII constituted an enormous public relations disaster for proponents of eugenics, the movement would later resurface under the banner of population control and radical environmentalism. Researchers Tarpley and Chaitkin document this transmogrification:
The population control or zero population growth movement, which grew rapidly in the late 1960s thanks to free media exposure and foundation grants for a stream of pseudoscientific propaganda about the alleged "population bomb" and the limits to growth," was a continuation of the old prewar, protofascist eugenics movement, which had been forced to go into temporary eclipse when the world recoiled in horror at the atrocities committed by the Nazis in the name of eugenics. By mid-1960s, the same old crackpot eugenicists had resurrected themselves as the population-control and environmentalist movement. Planned Parenthood was a perfect example of the transmogrification. Now, instead of demanding the sterilization of the inferior races, the newly packaged eugenicists talked about the population bomb, giving the poor "equal access" to birth control, and "freedom of choice" (Tarpley & Chaitkin, p. 203, 1992).
Indeed, Planned Parenthood successfully carried the banner of eugenics into the post-WWII era. Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, a virulently racist woman who touted the slogan: "Birth Control: to create a race of thoroughbreds." Her manifesto, entitled The Pivot of Civilization, thoroughly delineates the mission of Planned Parenthood and its allied organizations in the eugenics movement. In this treatise, which featured an introduction written by Freemason and Fabian socialist H.G. Wells, Sanger reveals the true motives underpinning the promotion of birth control:
Sanger believed that society's tolerance of "morons," "human weeds," and the "feeble-minded' was encouraging dysgenics. To remedy this purported genetic threat, Sanger unabashedly promoted the implementation of authoritarian measures:
Understand, these are the words of a so-called "proponent of reproductive rights." Moreover, Sanger desired to see the establishment of a gulag system within America for the internment of the "feeble-minded." In an issue of Birth Control Review, she wrote:
Although Sanger's gulag system was not formally enacted in the United States, her vision saw horrible fulfillment in Nazi Germany. It comes as little surprise that Planned Parenthood's board of directors included Nazi supporters such as Dr. Lothrop Stoddard, author of a racist tract entitled The Rising Tide of Color Against White Supremacy. In fact, Birth Control Review acted as a conduit for the dissemination of Nazi propaganda in America. In April of 1933, Dr. Ernst Rudin, Hitler's director of genetic sterilization and a founder of the Nazi Society for Racial Hygiene, published an article in Birth Control Review. Entitled "Eugenic Sterilization: An Urgent Need," the article presented the following appeal:
Of course, in Rudin's native country, the "feeble-minded" did not remain "unsegregrated" for very long. The same year that Sanger's publication printed Rudin's article, Ernst collaborated with Heinrich Himmler on Germany's 1933 sterilization law. This genocidal edict stipulated the sterilization of all Jews and "colored" German children. Eventually, the "undesirables" were collected, segregated, and systematically murdered. The final result of the Nazi eugenics program was the Holocaust, which claimed six million lives.
Yet, how many people would have been segregated for orderly disposal according to Sanger's vision? Upon examination of army statistics, Sanger concluded that:
Sanger expressed dismal hopes for a vast segment of the population, declaring that: "only 13,500,000 will ever show superior intelligence" (Sanger, The Pivot of Civilization, p. 264, 1922). Thus, only a meager 13.5% of the population would be permitted to procreate. The rest would be segregated for orderly disposal. Evidently, Sanger's holocaust would have even dwarfed Hitler's Final Solution.
In typical Darwinian fashion, Sanger showed little mercy towards the weak. In fact, Margaret expressed a distinct aversion towards the poor. Chapter Five of her book is entitled "The Cruelty of Charity." Reiterating Malthus' proposal to "disclaim the right of the poor to support," she wrote:
Sanger particularly loathed:
According to Margaret, such an investment of time, effort, resources, and love represented the height of futility:
Planned Parenthood retains an active role in the scientific dictatorship's project of eugenical regimentation today. Despite revelations of Nazi atrocities constituted a public relations disaster for the organization, Planned Parenthood survived and continues to tangibly enact Sanger's vision. In fact, so-called "conservative, pro-life, pro-family, Christian" President George Bush Sr. pledged his whole-hearted support to the group. Researchers Tarpley and Chaitkin explain:
Transhumanism: Techno-Eugenics and the End of Humanity
Today, Galton's agenda of biological totalitarianism has resurfaced as the World Transhumanist Association. However, equipped with nanotechnology and genetic engineering, this movement presents a technologically augmented form of eugenics. Richard Hayes, executive director of the Center for Genetics and Society, elaborates:
Here is the vision of the Transhumanist movement? Huxley's Brave New World where the new class distinction is genetic. Yet, just how long shall the GenRich class tolerate the existence of its biological subordinates? Hayes continues:
This is a frightening proposition indeed. C. Christopher Hook delineates the philosophy underpinning Transhumanism:
Like Nietzsche's overman, the roboman of Warwick and Kosko represents yet another incarnation of Adam Weishaupt's "inner Areopagites: man made perfect as a god-without-God" (Billington, p. 97, 1980).
A central feature of Darwinism has been the belief in great extinctions. That belief remains firmly embedded within the crusade of the Transhumanist movement. Hook elaborates:
According to the Darwinian doctrine of the Transhumanist movement, mankind is the next species slated for extinction. How does the GenRich class intend to regulate the rest of the "dysgenics" until their ultimate extinction? Transhumanist ideologue and Deputy Director of the National Science Foundation's Division of Information and Intelligent Systems William Sims Bainbridge provides the answer:
In other words, the pharmacological totalitarianism of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Chemically numbed and anesthetized, the "dysgenics" will resign themselves to extinction in the posthuman era. Meanwhile, the eugenical alchemists of the elite continue to write the final chapter of the evolutionary script and they have left no room for humanity in the last pages.
