What is there about humanity that permits many to walk in silence as others are targeted for death and destruction only to scream out for justice when the winds turn in their direction. Is the life of your child of greater value than mine?
Eugenics was a powerful movement in England, the United States and Nazi Germany from the late nineteenth century until 1945. The basic belief was that bad, ‘degenerate’ genes were the cause of problems in society, and the solution was to cleanse the gene pool. Eugenics receded from the world stage after Germany lost World War II. In its most extreme form, in Germany, it was the rationale for the Holocaust – the killing of Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, and schizophrenics. We’re talking 6 million murders. In the United States there were massive programs of forced sterilization. Traits that were seen as infecting the gene pool were poverty, feeble-mindedness, alcoholism, rebelliousness, criminality, prostitution, manic-depression, and schizophrenia. 60,000 forced sterilizations took place.
In 1913, twenty-nine states had laws preventing marriage between the races. It wasn’t until 1967 that most of these laws were changed. Hitler quoted the Eugenic Societies of the United States when he concluded that the creation of progeny should be based on what would be injurious to the racial stock. After 5000 sterilizations a month, the Nazis moved on to gas 80,000 schizophrenics, 20,000 manic-depressives, the deaf, the blind, the so-called feeble-minded, people with epilepsy, etc. American eugenic organizations were publicly jealous of their effectiveness. As is the norm, amnesia then set in and eugenics has disappeared from our consciousness. History, unremembered, repeats itself.
All of this took place with minimal understanding of genetics. During the rise of the eugenics movement there was no knowledge of what a gene actually was, nor DNA, RNA and protein genetic functions. There was no double helix, and the genome was a total mystery. In today’s world, armed with amazing genetic knowledge, we have once again returned to the myth of genetic determinism – with potentially dangerous implications….

A Government device allows a deceptive geo-targeting application to pinpoint your location. The device is pitched as being useful in hunting down drug traffickers, but the actuality of the use for it could be far more nefarious.
Cellular site simulators, otherwise known as “#StingRay Tracking,” are towers which appear to be normal #cellphonetowers, but are actually spying devices. They use digital signals to trick cell phones into revealing their location. The #StingRayTracking towers are supposed to only be set up near FBI “targets,” but they’ve also been found to be located near large rallies and events tapping into thousands of people’s phones.
Law enforcement has to get permission to set these fake towers up. However, the process for getting approval is considered incredibly simple. Rep. Jason Chaffetz of #Utah feels this is an extreme violation of the general public’s privacy and according to USA Today, he’s speaking out. “If you can track somebody’s location 24/7, you know the content of their life,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah. “I think innocent Americans have a reasonable expectation of privacy.” Chaffetz last November proposed the Stingray Privacy Act, which would toughen the warrants needed to deploy the devices and make their use without a court order illegal and punishable with a fine or up to 10 years in prison.
Since introducing the bipartisan legislation, Chaffetz said his ongoing investigation into which agencies use StingRay devices and why has yielded few answers. “It’s still highly secretive,” Chaffetz told FoxNews.com Wednesday. “They’re not very candid about how they’re using them.” “For instance, the IRS has this technology,” he said. “What in the world are they doing with it? It raises questions as to why they would need to track people as they move around the country.” Imagine the IRS tracking our every move. This is a blatant violation of our privacy rights.#Texas, #Minnesota, #California are just a few of the places these spy devices are being used. #Technocracy #SurveillanceState#PoliceStatemattvanemden – #r – https://www.instagram.com/p/BWQiHMCA9Il/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=3fmnkl546cik
