In April 2006 Dr Eric Pianka gave a speech to the Texas Academy of Science in which he advocated the need to exterminate 90% of the population through the airborne Ebola virus. News Report: Dr Eric R Pianka, Professor of Zoology, University of Texas (Austin)
And I actually think the world will be much better when there’s only ten to twenty per cent of us left. Dr Eric Pianka
Disease will control the scourge of humanity. We’re looking forward to a huge collapse. Dr Eric Pianka
We need to sterilise everybody on the Earth. And make the antidote freely available to anybody who will work for us. Dr Eric Pianka
China was able to turn the corner and become the leading world superpower because they have a police state and they are able to force people to stop reproducing. Dr Eric Pianka
For the Germans annihilating a race was only part of the objective. The camps would also play a more constructive role. They would justify the genocide by advancing the cause of a corrupt medical science. Niall Ferguson, Civilisation: Is the West History? Channel 4 2011
Incredibly, female prisoners were forced to scrape the skulls clean with glass shards before the specimens were sent off for examination. In 1906 a total of 778 autopsies were performed on prisoners for so-called racial-biological research. Dr Eugen Fischer arrived in north-west Africa just after the death camps opened. Obsessed with the voguish new science of race he saw the camps as an ideal research opportunity ... In 1913 Fischer published his findings: Negro blood, he concluded, was fundamentally inferior to white blood. ibid.
The ethnic cleansing begun in the time of Moses is brought to bloody fruition in the Book of Joshua, a text remarkable for the bloodthirsty massacres it records and the xenophobic relish with which it does so. Professor Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
What you call genocide I call a day’s work. tar Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e19: Duet, Cardassian prisoner
What I’m proposing is wiping out every Founder on that planet. Obliterating the Great Link. Come now, Mr Worf. You’re a Klingon. Don’t tell me you’d object to a little genocide in the name of self-defence. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s4e26: Broken Link, Odo to Worf
It is true that diseases introduced by convicts and settlers – smallpox, typhoid, tuberculosis, diphtheria, whooping cough, influenza, pneumonia, measles and venereal disease – seriously depleted Aboriginal numbers. But it is to the genocidal impulses and actions of the settlers that we must turn for evidence of Australia’s treatment of the Aboriginal peoples.
… We know something about the physical killings, particularly in the latter half of the last and the early part of this century. The first white settlers came to Tasmania in 1803, and by 1806 the serious killing began. In retaliation for the spearing of livestock, Aboriginal children were abducted for use in forced labour, women were raped and tortured and given poisoned flour, and the men were shot. They were systematically disposed of in ones, twos and threes, or in dozens, rather than in one systematic massacre. Professor Colin Tatz, Genocide in Australia AIATSIS Research Discussion Paper 8
One of the first to be attacked was Guatemala ... They are indigenous Mayan people and very poor. In the 1950s, 2% of the population of Guatemala controlled the natural wealth in collusion with the giant US corporations like the United Fruit Company, which dominated banana growing. On the board of United Fruit was John Foster Dulles who happened to be US Secretary of State. His brother Allen happened to run the CIA. Both were Christian fundamentalists, who regarded any opposition as the work of communism and the devil. In 1950 this man Jacobo Arbenz became the first Guatemalan leader to be democratically elected by a majority of his people, who saw in him the hope of social justice. He was the Hugo Chavez of his day ... His land reform policies were modest. Washington was having none of it. John Pilger, The War on Democracy
General Rios Montt was to be one of Washington’s faces of liberty. During his time as president in the 1980s thousands of people were murdered by death squads, most of them indigenous men, women and children. His guns and helicopters came from the United States. President Reagan flew in to endorse the general, who he described as ‘a man of great personal integrity’. The crushing of Guatemala became America’s blueprint. ibid.
In Guatemala, the United Nations described the Washington-backed campaign against the Mayan People as genocide. ibid.
The story of my country has been and remains an epic cover-up ... There have been almost one hundred Aboriginal deaths in police custody in recent years ... Australia’s imprisonment of black people is the highest in the world ... Deaths of this kind have been going on for two hundred years. John Pilger, Secrets
Today it is estimated that more than half a million Aborigines died as the direct result of the British invasion. ibid.
East Timor is a tiny country just four hundred miles to the north of Australia. A Portuguese colony for more than four hundred years, East Timor was invaded in 1975 by Indonesia, the fifth largest nation in the world and led by a military dictatorship. Indonesia has no historical or legal claim to East Timor, yet its brutal occupation has met with mostly silence from the world’s governments and international agencies ... As a result of the Indonesia invasion and occupation some 200,000 died here. That’s a third of the population. John Pilger, Death of a Nation – The Timor Conspiracy, ITV 1998
There are also documents showing torture was officially sanctioned with established procedures for the torturer. One such manual is entitled, Guiding the Village Comprehensively, and lists the dos and don’ts of torture. And here they are: avoid taking photographs showing torture in progress; and when people are being subjected to electric current, and when they have been stripped naked etc. Remember not to have photographs developed outside East Timor which could then be made available to public by irresponsible elements. Interrogation should be repeated over and over again until the correct conclusion is drawn. ibid.
There is also a wider question: are international relations at the close of the twentieth century to be dominated by euphemisms and lies that override justice and make small nations expendable? The fate of the people of East Timor is pivotal to this. For if we allow our governments to arm their oppressors and steal their resources and to do so in our name, how can we claim the universal rights that are denied them? ibid.
In 1975 Indonesia invaded East Timor. Like Saddam’s attack on Kuwait, the occupation was declared by the UN to be illegal. But no action ever followed. In the last 18 years a third of the East Timorese population has been killed, while Western governments have remained silent, or, like Britain, have sold arms worth hundreds of millions to Indonesia. John Pilger, article 12th February 1994, ‘The West’s Dirty Wink’
A genocidal history that's barely recognised in white Australia. John Pilger, Utopia ***** ITV 2013
East Timor: The day after Kissinger left Djakarta in 1975, the Armed Forces of Indonesia employed American weapons to invade and subjugate the independent former Portuguese colony of East Timor. Isaacson gives a figure of 100,000 deaths resulting from the occupation, or one-seventh of the population, and there are good judges who put this estimate on the low side. Kissinger was furious when news of his own collusion was leaked, because as well as breaking international law the Indonesians were also violating an agreement with the United States ... Monroe Leigh ... pointed out this awkward latter fact. Kissinger snapped: ‘The Israelis when they go into Lebanon – when was the last time we protested that?’ A good question, even if it did not and does not lie especially well in his mouth. Christopher Hitchens
The Indonesian dictatorship thought it would be better if Indonesia occupied and annexed the people and territory of East Timor. So they evolved a plan whereby they took the land and they subjected the people to a campaign of genocide. Christopher Hitchens
Can genocide be committed by people of the same ethnicity? Christopher Hitchens, New York University April 2010
We can either prevent it or punish it. ibid.
We can’t live on the same planet as them [Jihadists] and I’m glad because I don’t want to. I don’t want to breathe the same air as these psychopaths and murders [sic] and rapists and torturers and child abusers. It’s them or me. I’m very happy about this because I know it will be them. It’s a duty and a responsibility to defeat them. But it’s also a pleasure. I don’t regard it as a grim task at all. Christopher Hitchens, 16th June 2005 cited WashingtonPrism
The case of Rwanda, which in 1992 gave the world a new synonym for genocide and sadism. The former Belgian possession is the most Christian country in Africa ... At a given signal the racist militias of ‘Hutu Power’, incited by state and church, fell upon their Tutsi neighbors and slaughtered them en masse. Christopher Hitchens, God is Not Great p190
This party [NRMD], together with other organs of the state was fond of rounding up any women of whom it disapproved as ‘prostitutes’ and of encouraging Catholic activists to trash any stores that sold contraceptives. Over time the word spread that prophecy would be fulfilled and that the ‘cockroaches’ – the Tutsi minority – would soon get what was coming to them. ibid. pp190-191
When the apocalyptic year of 1994 actually hit, and the remeditated and coordinated massacres began, many frightened Tutsi and dissident Hutu were unwise enough to try and take refuge in churches. ibid. p191
