A Population Control Primer

Post from February 24, 2015 (↻ June 8, 2021), filed under .

I wrote this after reading way too many conspiracy-related books, and I keep it up only to show how one can become a bit too concerned and riled up. Nothing in here, then, shall truly suggest that anyone controls or is controlled in an effective fashion. That’s at least nothing I could (or would want to) detect.

This post is about ruling people. For the control of population growth, see e.g. Wikipedia.

An incomplete, roughly sorted sketch of actions, methods, and developments that don’t serve us. We have a lot of work to do.

None are more enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Willfully start military conflicts and don’t prevent (but rather provoke) natural disasters. Use confusion and despair to cut more rights, take over more control, and expand powers. Move towards centralized governance. Let the uneducated, powerless, controlled main population think they’re educated, powerful, and in control.
