Rockefeller Council Demographers Subjected American Slums To Eugenic Mind-Control Ops
June 30, 2012
Until recently unsuspected and undetected, a publication surfaces straight from the Rockefeller Archives which speaks of eugenic mind-operations on the black community of Chicago in the early 1960s.
In an outright chilling speech the two men in charge of the operations, Donald Bogue and Palmore, told the American Public Health Association in 1964 that they were “”using the slums of Chicago as a ‘laboratory,’” hoping to develop “principles and theories which could be ‘exported’ overseas.“”, Ph.D. candidate Edmund Ramsden reveals in his paper Between Quality and Quantity: The Population Council and the Politics of “Science-making” in Eugenics and Demography, 1952-1965.
After writing extensively on John D. Rockefeller III and his commitment to continue his forefather’s eugenic dream (to create an elite super-race while simultaneously depopulate the planet), Ramsden (now a doctor of the University of Exeter and the London School of Economics) managed to retrieve some mind-blowing findings from the Rockefeller Archive.
Quite inadvertently, it seems, the Ph.D-to-be stumbled upon evidence from within the archives of the Rockefellers themselves, which conclusivelyproves that “Chicago’s negro population” was subjected to experiments in a laboratory-setting conducted by Rockefeller’s “finest” social engineers.
According to the material Ramsden consulted in the Rockefeller Archives, the chief-operators Bogue and Palmore “attempted to uncover general patterns of resistance to birth control that existed in the developed and developing nations and drew parallels between “the crude birth rate of Chicago’s Negro population,” the rural South, India, and Puerto Rico.”
“The Population Council (…)”, he writes,“funded the University of Chicago in 1962-63 for a research program in “Problems of Bearing and Rearing Children in High-Fertility, Low-Income, Low-Education American Families.””
The implementation of this mysterious Problems of Bearing and Rearing Childrenin High-Fertility, Low-Income, Low-Education American Families-program on American families was executed with the help of several clinics, propagandists and other individuals, roaming the streets of Chicago during a good part of the 1960s.
“This”, writes Ramsden, “would be the first grant by the Population Council to evaluate an action program in the United States, and involved the establishment of a mobile communications center and clinic, the employment of medical personnel and social workers, interviewers, technical staff, the preparation of family planning communications materials, machine tabulation costs, and so on.”
Ramsden only skimmed over the subject in his paper, as it was helpful but not essential to his report. However we learn some more about the tactics used by these “mobile communication centers and clinics” in Mary Ziegler’s excellent Reinventing Eugenics: Reproductive Choice and Law Reform After World War II:
“Bogue’s assistants sent targeted mailings to people living in housing projects and advertised in what Bogue called “ethnic newspapers,” like the Chicago Defender. Frequently, he used volunteers who appeared to be objective or even friendly to dispense advice.
African-American volunteers were instructed to befriend people in the neighborhoods studied before advising them to stop having children. Those with medical training were supposed to characterize their recommendations as objective medical advice rather than as propaganda put out by the Council.”
