A czar is born 2

Obama has appointed John Holdren as his ‘Science Czar’. (As we have said before these ‘Czars’ would be more accurately titled ‘Commissars’.)

What may we expect of him?

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 a 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.

  • pencil – for an answer to this question of yours, please see C.Gee’s reply to your comments on ‘Palin condemns Obama’s “cap-and-tax” plan’.

    Also, see Jonah Goldberg’s book ‘Liberal Fascism’.

    I think one of the causes of the disease of leftism is moral vanity. It makes certain people feel good to claim that their hearts ache for the oppressed masses. Very condescending, very self-elevating. Such people seldom give a damn for any individuals they actually know.

    Vanity, or egotism, is a great motivator.

    Not sure if you got my other comment. I was saying I guess I got some documents
    mixed up. I was thinking of the declaration of independance after all. I
    apologize if my comments are off topic but this is really the only oportunity
    I have had to talk to conservative atheists.

    What do you soppose it is that makes a person vote socialist? That has always astounded me.
    I wonder what you think the motives could be. Since you come from a secular perspective
    I figured you might have some insight on this.
