Creating Waves of Awareness
Kissinger Report - 2004
On December 10, 1974, the United States National Security Council promulgated National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM-200), also called The Kissinger Report. This document explicitly laid out a detailed strategy by which the United States would aggressively promote population control in developing nations in order to regulate (or have better access to) the natural resources of these countries.
In order to protect U.S. commercial interests, NSSM-200 cited a number of factors that could interrupt the smooth flow of materials from lesser-developed countries, LDCs as it called them, to the United States, including a large population of anti-imperialist youth, who must, according to NSSM-200, be limited by population control. The document identified 13 nations by name that would be primary targets of U.S.-funded population control efforts.
Elements of Implementation
According to NSSM-200, elements of the implementation of population control programs could include: a) the legalization of abortion; b) financial incentives for countries to increase their abortion, sterilization and contraception-use rates; c) indoctrination of children; and d) mandatory population control, and coercion of other forms, such as withholding disaster and food aid unless an LDC implements population control programs.
NSSM-200 also specifically declared that the United States was to cover up its population control activities and avoid charges of imperialism by inducing the United Nations and various non-governmental organizations to do its dirty work.
We see that the WHO is one such stooge.
While the CIA and Departments of State and Defense have issued hundreds of papers on population control and national security, the U.S. government has never renounced NSSM-200, but has only amended certain portions of its policy. NSSM-200, therefore, remains the foundational document on population control issued by the United States government.
NSSM-200’s strategies have resulted in regional population growth rates decelerating so fast that they are already causing severe economic and social problems in Europe, the former Soviet Union, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong. Many developing nations are now aging even more rapidly than the developed world, which foretells of even more severe problems for their relatively underdeveloped economies.
Over the past 40 years there has been much disagreement over whether or not population control programs are necessary for those nations with the most rapidly growing populations. There can be no disagreement now, however, except among those organizations whose incomes depend upon such programs.
From the very beginning, the “population explosion” concept was an ideologically motivated false alarm. The resulting push for population control in LDCs has borne absolutely no positive fruit in its decades of implementation. In fact, population control ideologies and programs make it even more difficult to respond to the impending grave crisis looming in the form of a disastrous worldwide “population implosion.”
Therefore, on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the promulgation of NSSM-200, Human Life International calls on the Bush administration to repudiate this document, which advocates violating the most precious freedoms and autonomy of the individual through coercive family planning programs, and to redirect its foreign policy and funding towards family-friendly programs.
They should renew this pledge with Obama
The citizens of the developed nations of the West treasure their right to privacy. It is hypocritical for these countries to routinely violate the right to privacy of the citizens of LDCs by telling families how many children they should or should not have. No nation has the right to invade the bedrooms of the citizens of another nation. NSSM-200 represents the epitome of interference in a family’s most intimate decisions.
KISSINGER REPORT 2004
NSSM-200 does not emphasize the rights or welfare of individuals or of nations, just the “right” of the United States to have unfettered access to the natural resources of developing nations. The United States and the other nations of the developed world, as well as ideologically motivated population control NGOs, should be supporting and guiding authentic economic development that allows the people of each nation to use their resources for their own benefit, thereby leading to an enhancement of human rights worldwide and healthier economies for all.
Here is the full text of an analysis.
A PARTIAL LISTING OF KEY PLAYERS AND ORGANIZATIONS BEHIND NSSM-200
Henry A. Kissinger, former National Security Advisor and United States Secretary of State, primary author of NSSM-200. He played a major role in formulating United States foreign policy, including
population policy. Since 1977 he has lectured and served as a consultant on international affairs.
Richard M. Nixon (1913-1994), 37th President of the United States (1969-1974), under whose authority NSSM-200 was written and approved.
Thomas Malthus, author of the 1798 work An Essay on the Principle of Population, which postulated that mass starvation would be an eventual result of “overpopulation.” This would be so, argued Malthus, because population increases geometrically, while food production increases only arithmetically. Both legs of his theory have been decisively disproved (Referenced pp. 7, 11-13).
Margaret Sanger, eugenicist and founder of the American Birth Control League (ABCL), later International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), the world’s largest and most influential promoter of abortion. Sanger is still revered as an icon by feminists and abortion-rights activists (Referenced pp. 11, 14, 32).
Paul Ehrlich, the founder of Zero Population Growth, is one of the world’s most influential population controllers. He has predicted (wrongly) that large-scale famines would occur in the United States by the year 1985. He still has many followers, and his organization, recently renamed the “Population Connection,” continues to lobby hard for a reduced population (Referenced pp. 13, 32).
Werner Fornos is president of the Population Institute and is a leading population control alarmist, who frequently uses outdated and false statistics and scenarios to convince people that the world is overpopulated
(Referenced pp. 14, 33).
Timothy Wirth, former State Department Undersecretary and “Population Czar” and current president of the United Nations Foundation, is one of America’s leading proponents of the use of condoms to restrain population growth and retard the spread of AIDS (Referenced p. 25).
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is one of the world’s leading population control organizations. It has been implicated for massively aiding the Chinese forced-abortion program and for directing the Peruvian forced sterilization program. UNFPA continues to insist that world population must be curtailed for the sake of the environment (Referenced pp. 14, 22-24, 27-28, 33-34).
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) was one of the original collaborators in the writing of NSSM-200. Today, it is very active in promoting population control in nations such as Peru and Uganda, even undercutting effective abstinence-based programs with ineffective condom distribution schemes (Referenced pp. 8, 22-23, 25, 27-28, 29, 33).
Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is the United States of America’s largest abortion provider, doing about a quarter million of the procedures each year. It is heavily funded by the government and is the leading abortion advocate in the United States (Referenced p. 32).
International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), with more than 180 family planning associations (FPAs) around the world, is the largest international promoter of abortion and other means of family planning (Referenced pp. 6, 28, 32).
