Eugenics being sold as “health care reform”

leave a comment »

Jun 23, 2009: Tomorrow evening, ABC News will host a “debate” about the “health care reform” that Obama and his administration are quickly moving to implement. From all of the available evidence about the “health care” policies the federal government intends to enforce, it is clear that the “reform” will actually result in the complete revival of Nazi-style euthanasia and eugenics programs. Such programs were directly implemented by Hitler and the fascist government of Germany in 1939, around the time that World War II began. Consider the following statements made at a public hearing on health care by Anton Chaitkin, history editor for Executive Intelligence Review, on June 10, 2009:

President Obama has put in place a reform apparatus reviving the euthanasia of Hitler Germany in 1939, that began the genocide there. The apparatus here, is to deny medical care to elderly, chronically-ill, and poor people, and thus save, as the President said, $2-3 trillion, by taking lives considered ‘not worthy to be lived,’ as the Nazi doctors said.

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel [OMB Director Peter Orszag’s chief health advisor] and other avowed cost-cutters on this panel also lead a propaganda movement for euthanasia headquartered at the Hastings Center, of which Dr. Emanuel is a Fellow. They shape public opinion and the medical profession to accept a death culture, such as the Washington State law passed in November to let physicians help kill patients whose medical care is now rapidly being withdrawn in the universal health-care disaster. Dr. Emanuel’s movement for Bioethics and euthanasia, and this Council’s purpose, directly continue the eugenics movement that organized Hitler’s killing of patients, and then other costly and supposedly unworthy people.

Dr. Emanuel wrote last Oct. 12 that a crisis, war, and financial collapse would get the frightened public to accept the program. Hitler told Dr. Brandt in 1935 that the euthanasia program would have to wait until the war began, to get the public to go along.

You on the Council are drawing up the procedure list to be used to deny care, which will kill millions if it goes ahead in the present world crash. You think, perhaps, that the backing of powerful men—financiers—will shield you from accountability. But you are now in the spotlight. Disband this Council, and reverse the whole course of this Nazi revival—now. [1]

These statements stunned the Obama “health-care panel” into silence, as it is a brutal and excellent summary of the whole consideration relative to the proposed “health care reform” of the current administration.

Massive misuse of money and resources by criminal cartel who run the government

While considering these proposed “cost cutting” measures, remember that some $12-13 trillion dollars have been committed to the financial oligarchy in the USA over the past 9 months, since the beginning of the economic crash in September, 2008. At least $1.1 trillion of this is directly taxpayer money [2], which has been poured like fuel onto the fire of the very toxic institutions who helped create this current financial chaos! One can understand how it is possible that such corruption can continue in the face of an overwhelming majority of public opposition (in this so-called “democratic” country) when considering the following recent statement made by Rep. Collin Peterson in reference to the US Congress: “The banks run the place.” [3]

In addition to the “bailout” of these global corporate criminal giants, at least $2-3 trillion of tax dollars has funded the terrible and massive US war-machine over just the past six years (since the Iraq invasion)—a death-dealing industry that is continuing to commit heinous and genocidal crimes in multiple countries on Earth. The most recent misuse of taxpayer money for wars was approved in a bill passed by the Senate last Thursday, giving the “war fund” yet another $80 billion [4]. Clearly, the military-industrial complex that is directly funded by the banks that “run the place [called the US government]” is also getting preferential use of tax dollars.

Thus, there is simply zero factual basis for the claim made by the government that “cost cutting” in relation to “health care” is necessary. What is actually necessary is massive reduction in spending on “bailing out” the systemically corrupt global corporations who have worked to destroy the lives of ordinary people through the current economic collapse, as well as eradication of the enormous expenditure on the military-industrial complex (including the “intelligence” agencies and so on).

Crisis of economic collapse and war used to push “reforms”

What we can see from the available evidence is that these Nazi-style “health care” programs are being pushed simultaneous with the multiple crises that are facing the USA (and the world). This is exactly the same means that Hitler used to push his health “reforms” at the beginning of World War II. Consider the following statements made on the subject by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel on Oct 12, 2008:

The world economy is teetering … With trillions of dollars evaporating in this crisis, millions of middle-class Americans face the prospect of losing their homes and jobs, and witnessing a dramatic contraction of their retirement savings. In response, the public will desperately want financial security…. [B]ailing out bankers and other gamblers [and the] huge increase in the federal debt that these bailouts will entail intensifies the pressure to rein in health-care costs….

The dean of health-care economists, Victor Fuchs of Stanford, has long maintained that we will get health-care reform only when there is a war, a depression or some other major civil unrest. It’s beginning to look like we might just have all three. [5]

Federal “death council” under the guise of “health care”

An extremely blunt and evidently accurate analysis of these statements is made by Anton Chaitkin in an article from last week:

When Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel wrote those words, he was chair of the Department of Bioethics (euthanasia education) at the United States Institutes of Health. Today he is President Obama’s leading representative on a Federal “death council” drawing up a list of medical procedures to be used to deny care to elderly, chronically ill, and poor people, whose lives are considered of less value. Ezekiel’s brother, Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, is ramming this Nazi-revival policy through Congress.

The President beat the drums on May 11, after meeting with private insurance companies, saying that because of the financial crisis, $2 trillion must be cut from American health-care spending. The companies promised to help him shut down more “costly” treatments, which typically prolong life. [6]

Thus, what we are looking at here is a “health care reform” that actually is more focused on death than anything else. During the Nuremberg trials, the Nazi euthanasia programs were covered in detail. Consider the following analysis of the conclusions reached by those trials and the subsequent history of the past 60 years:

The U.S. National Military Tribunal identified as a prime motive of the euthanasia program, “to eliminate ‘useless eaters’ from the scene, in order to conserve food, hospital facilities, doctors and nurses for the more important use of the German armed forces.”

That euthanasia program, and the rise to power of the Nazi regime that perpetrated it, had been sold to a population frantic from economic collapse and predisposed, from years of propaganda by the eugenics/euthanasia movement, to consider some lives unworthy to be lived.

After World War II, London and Wall Street supporters of Hitler’s program continued the eugenics/euthanasia movement and spread it globally. Under names including “bioethics,” this movement has prepared public opinion, medical education, and government policy to discard the notion of the sanctity of human life that holds our civilization together. [7]

It is an undeniable historical fact that the eugenics/euthanasia programs implemented by Nazi Germany were the foundational model for the subsequent programs of extermination that targeted Communists, Gypsies, and Jewish people. Extermination of all the “undesirables” in other words from the then fascist German nation. The following sums this all up extremely well:

One is reminded of the famous poem attributed to Pastor Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984): “In Germany, they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. And then, they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up.” The substance of other statements of Niemoeller would permit one to add a verse citing “the incurably ill,” before the one on the Communists. [8]

“Health care” proposals have striking resemblance to failed Massachusetts “reforms” of 2006

Massachusetts implemented “reforms” in 2006 that have a striking resemblance to the “health care” proposals of the current administration. The past three years have proven the failure of the Massachusetts experiment, as summarised by these statements:

Three years ago, Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney signed into law one of the most far-reaching experiments in health care reform since President Bill Clinton’s ill-fated attempt at national health care. Proponents promised the reforms would reduce health care costs, suggesting the price of individual insurance policies would be reduced by 25-40 percent. In reality, however, insurance premiums rose by 7.4 percent in 2007, 8-12 percent in 2008, and are expected to rise 9 percent this year. This is compared to a nationwide average increase of 5.7 percent over the same three years. Nationally, on average, health insurance for a family of four costs $12,700; in Massachusetts, coverage for the same family costs an average of $16,897.

In fact, since the bill was signed, health care spending in the state has increased by 23 percent. Thus, despite individual and employer mandates, the creation of an insurance connector and other measures that increase insurance regulations, Massachusetts has failed to bring costs down.

President Obama and Congressional leaders have endorsed expanding coverage in similar ways to Massachusetts. The proposals would undoubtedly make it easier for some people to get coverage, but would also raise insurance costs for the young and healthy, making it more likely they would go without coverage. [9]

An in-depth analysis of the proposed “reforms” in relation to the evidence shown by the Massachusetts experiement concludes with the following summary remarks:

If Massachusetts has taught us anything, it is that individual and employer mandates are a new government program. They effectively socialize health care by compelling participation in the marketplace, dictating what consumers purchase and at what price, eliminating both economical and comprehensive health plans, and raising taxes. Massachusetts shows that mandates lead ultimately to government rationing by granting government even more power to decide how providers will be paid and how they will practice medicine.

The coming debate is not just about the freedom to make one’s own medical decisions. It is about life and death. If we insist on a dynamic and competitive market, health care will be better, cheaper, safer, and more secure. If we go in the direction of new government programs, mandates, and price controls, we will see higher costs, more medical errors, more uncoordinated care, and more lives lost because people with government “insurance” nevertheless couldn’t find a doctor who would treat them. [10]

Thus, even the argument that costs will be reduced via implementing these “reforms” is shown to be completely false. In addition, it is clear that the federal government would gain incredible new powers of control over the health care of every one of us. This would be a profound infringement on our inherent human right to freely choose the health solutions we want (and not those that the government wants to dictate) for our own bodies.

Conclusion

Given all of the evidence relating to the “health care reforms” being pushed forwards by the federal government, this issue can be summarised with the following three points:

  • The “reforms” have incredible similarity to Nazi-style “health care” programs implemented by Hitler and the fascist German government of 1939, with the end result being the elimination of “useless eaters” who were deemed unfit to continue living—and these “health care” programs then formed the basis of the eugenics movement that worked to eliminate all the other “undesirables” (such as Communists, Gypsies, and Jewish people) from Nazi Germany;
  • It is not “necessary” based on any true economic facts that government spending on health be reduced in the USA—rather, massive reductions in spending on the military-industrial complex and the corporate financial sector (to name two of the most obvious “toxic” industries that squander massive amounts of the energy of humankind) is urgently needed, such that a natural economic equilibrium and balance can be quickly worked towards;
  • A three year experiement in Massachusetts since 2006 conclusively proves that “reforms” almost identical to those being proposed do nothing to reduce health care costs for the end user—in fact, average costs have risen noticeably compared to the rest of the country, while care has been less available and placed under tighter government controls, thus giving the bureaucracy vast powers over life and death, with such powers being an inherent infringement of fundamental human rights.

As the “debate” led by Obama on this issue is happening on national television tomorrow evening (June 24, 2009), it is not possible to say exactly what the final composition of the “health care reforms” proposed by the federal government will be. However, based on all of the official discussions about this matter originating from the current administration, it is clear that anything close to the current proposals will result in more death, less health care, and greater costs for the vast majority of people in the USA.

Thus, resisting these “reforms” in anything like their currently discussed form is essential. The extent of governmental intrusion into our lives that would result is completely unacceptable, and it must be stopped through the force of non-violent resistance, practiced universally by the people of this country. A relentless attack on basic human rights and freedom is being perpetrated in recent months by the powerful money-interests that completely control the current administration, as expressed by these proposed “health care reforms” as well as many other pieces of legislation that are being pushed forwards very quickly (including the attempt to take “totalitarian control of the food supply” [11]).

May the power of “everybody-all-at-once” awaken immediately, such that these corrupt and powerful corporate and government interests are obliged to be accountable to humankind, through a universal demand from “we the people”. May such a positive and transformative force arise now, such that our inherent human rights be protected. May it be so.
