The Trilateralists' ready acceptance of such crimes against humanity would seem incomprehensible if we forget another major objective of TC: to reduce what it termed the "rapidly growing population" and to solve the problems of "overpopulation." It called on the developed countries to increase their aid "substantially", including, of course, "family planning", to the less-developed countries. But these grants-in-aid are not without strings. "Grants can properly be subject to conditions to achieve their stated objectives" and "recipient countries whose sense of national sovereignty is offended by such conditions can decline the foreign assistance." These conditions are already imposed in Sections 102 and 104(d) of the U.S. International Development and Food Assistance Act -- i.e., countries receiving American aid must take steps to curb their population growth (Towards a Renovated International System: A Report of the Trilateral Integrators Task Force to the Trilateral Commission, New York: Trilateral Commission, 1977, p. 28). From there we know that abortion (i.e. murders of the unborn) and birth control are forced on those poor countries that receive both U.S. and U.N. aid.
First, the Report prepared for the Masonic Club of Rome posited that as world population was growing out of control, the non-renewable resources of the world would eventually run out and the world economy would mire in depression and misery. Worst still, the whole civilization may collapse as a result of the lack of a drastic response to this critical problem (Donella H. Meadows, Dennis L. Meadows et al., The Limits to Growth: A Report for the Club of Rome's Project on the Predicament of Mankind, New York: Universe Books, 1972). Next, the Carter administration's Global 2000 Report, which was essentially written by Trilateralists, predicted: "With the persistence of human poverty and misery, the staggering growth of human population, and ever increasing human demands, the possibilities of further stress and permanent damage to the planet's resource base are very real" (The Global 2000 Report to the President: Global Future: Time to Act, prepared by the Council on Environmental Quality and the U.S Department of State, Washington: U.S. Government Printing Office, January 1981, p. ix). In his January 14, 1981, Farewell Address, President Jimmy Carter re-emphasized the overriding importance his administration had attached to the problem of "overpopulation" (Jimmy Carter, "Farewell Address: Major Issues Facing the Nation", Vital Speeches of the Day, vol. XLVII, no.8, February 1, 1981, p. 227). More extreme than these are ideas of Kenneth Boulding, Isaac Asimov, and Garrett Hardin who compared the earth with a spaceship or an overloaded life boat (K. Boulding, "The Economics of the Coming Spaceship Earth," in Henry Jarrett, ed. Enviromental Quality in a Growing Economy, Baltimore: Johns Hopkins, 1966; I. Asimov, Earth, Our Crowded Spaceship, New York: John Day, 1974; G. Hardin, "Living on a Life Boat," BioScience, Oct. 1974). The implication is that there is enough food only for a few elite people on the lifeboat or the spaceship. As there is not enough food to feed the excess number of people (the poor, the mass) they should be thrown overboard (i.e. killed off by wars or epidemics). These "reasonings" provide justification for curbing population growth and destroying excess population by every means including wars, genocides, epidemics, starvation, economic depressions, and, yes, terrorism. They also provide justification for preserving the environment in an extreme way (extreme environmentalism). From this we can deduce that conflicts, wars, genocides, and massacres in Africa, Bosnia, the Middle-East, or elsewhere for that matter, will never be resolved or stopped. Environmentalism becomes a powerful and insidious pretext to implement controlled economic depressions.
(Comment: Even the whole material universe could not be compared with a single human soul which was created in the image and likeness of God. And here we are, people are to be destroyed and sacrificed for the sake preserving the soulless and inanimate earth and its resources! What an abominable idolatry! We do not deny that what God has created in the earth is good and must be respected and used in a frugal way by human beings. To protect the environment and its resources is good. However, to sacrifice people whose souls are immortal to preserve soon-to-pass-away, soulless things is perverse to the extreme. This can only be conceived in the mind of Satan whom many Trilateralists perhaps worship).
