Subtle Exclusionary Tactics : Can Ultimately Turn Into : "Lebensunwertes Leben" - Life Unworthy of Life

21 May 2015

The following article posted in is a reminder that small, subtle, but exclusionary accounts begin to surface, which seems almost innocuous, but are ways in which to Exclude or find excuses to isolate those deemed 'unworthy' of equal respect and or consideration.  There is always a litany of narratives utilized to justify such behavior and or overt attitudes but deep down it is nothing more than ignorance, bigotry, and intolerance, which exists within the individuals, groups, organizations who fall prey to such beliefs. 

As a Targeted Individual this type of bigotry and ignorance will be deployed and executed upon and against your living life; where you live, where you work, where you shop, in public settings, whereby those who participate will be indoctrinated into a false belief system of superiority over the Target.  A sort of One-Ups-Manship, but ultimately they become those who acquiesce, and surrender their individual power over to the dictates of some leader and or leaders. 

What this article, like so many news stories that come out are showing is that the Behavior is becoming more and more prevalent in American Society, and the Intolerance and Bigotry is getting to the point of epidemic.  

Utah High School Excludes Special Needs Students From Appearing in Yearbook

This year, Leslee Bailey was stunned when she saw that her daughter Amber wasn't included in the Blue Peak High School yearbook as she had been in past years. Amber has Down syndrome and takes classes in the Utah high school building [2].
For the last two years, the school has always included the 17 special needs students from the center in the yearbook. However, this year, a change was made.
“They’ve been to school with these kids,” Leslee Bailey said. “They’ve walked the halls with them. How would you feel if it was your child? You know, your child was left out because, as the principal told me, ‘We don’t have the pages.’”
According to Tooele County School District, the reason for the change is that Blue Peak High School students used to help tutor the special needs students in the building but they no longer do. And because it's a transitional program via the county’s Community Learning Center designed for special needs students to progress from high school, they shouldn't be involved in activities like yearbook

Yet, these 21st Century Tactics and false beliefs are NOTHING NEW, even though this new nationwide multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-religious, diverse socio-economic Cult of State/Corporate sponsored Sleeper Cells - believe that who they are and what their GROUP represents is something New Age, Cutting Edge, Modern - but in point of literal historic fact - they simply are the MIRROR of all other Mass Murdering Regimes before them.  Save the Technological Advances to speed up the process - there is most literally NOTHING NEW - in who or what or where the final solutions/outcomes reside.  


- NAZI, GERMANY  is KNOWN for Targeting their own citizens, those blights upon society whom the Nazi Regime felt were "life unworthy of life" in German: "Lebensunwertes Leben" and first began by convincing the German populous it would be in their best interest, the greater good to Sterilize those within their families, and society who were blights upon society.  

One of the first acts by Adolf Hitler after achieving total control over the German state was to pass the Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring (Gesetz zur Verhütung erbkranken Nachwuchses) in July 1933.

The basic provisions of the 1933 law stated that:
(1) Any person suffering from a hereditary disease may be rendered incapable of procreation by means of a surgical operation (sterilization), if the experience of medical science shows that it is highly probable that his descendants would suffer from some serious physical or mental hereditary defect.
(2) For the purposes of this law, any person will be considered as hereditarily diseased who is suffering from any one of the following diseases: –
(1) Congenital Mental Deficiency,
(2) Schizophrenia,
(3) Manic-Depressive Insanity,
(4) Hereditary Epilepsy,
(5) Hereditary Chorea (Huntington’s),
(6) Hereditary Blindness,
(7) Hereditary Deafness,
(8) Any severe hereditary deformity.
(3) Any person suffering from severe alcoholism may be also rendered incapable of procreation.[2]
 The SLOW POISONING of the MINDS of the PEOPLE -  
First Step: Sterilization of Your Own.. view these human beings as LESS THAN - NOT EQUAL -

By the end of the Nazi regime, over 200 "Genetic Health Courts" were created, and under their rulings over 400,000 people were sterilized against their will 

Second Step - "Mercy Kill / Euthanize" those Blights Upon Society -  Thus, "Lebensunwertes Leben" or "Life Unworthy of Life."

Euthanasia - the "mercy killing" of people "not worth living" became a murderous program in Nazi Germany. This campaign is believed to have resulted in the killing of approximately 200,000 people. Evidence from the Nuremburg trials estimated that even 275,000 people were murdered. ...

FINAL Step - Dominate the World with This IDEOLOGY - Target the NEXT GROUP for EXTERMINATION - The Holocaust 


WHY?  If, they could Sacrifice their own i.e. children, relatives, friends to Sterilization and then Mercy Kill them via Euthanasia  - It made it that much easier to MASSACRE in the MILLIONS whomever their LEADERS DEEMED UNWORTHY -

What may not be known is that this superior attitude had much of its root in America, in particular, Compulsory or Forced Sterilization, meaning the United States was already conducting forced sterilization on American's, long before the Nazi took this information and ran with it. 


The Horrifying American Roots of Nazi Eugenics
by Edwin Black

Hitler and his henchmen victimized an entire continent and exterminated millions in his quest for a so-called "Master Race."

But the concept of a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed master Nordic race didn't originate with Hitler.  The idea was created in the united States, and cultivated in California, decades before Hitler came to power.  California eugenicists played an important, although little known, role in the American eugenics movement's campaign for ethnic cleansing.  

Eugenics was the racist pseudoscience determined to wipe away all human beings deemed "unfit," preserving only those who conformed to a Nordic stereotype.  Elements of the philosophy were enshrined as national policy by forced sterilization and segregation laws, as well as marriage restrictions, enacted in twenty-seven states.  In 1909, California became the third state to adopt such laws.  Ultimately, eugenics practitioners coercively sterilized some 60,000 Americans, barred the marriage of thousands, forcibly segregated thousands in "colonies," and persecuted untold numbers in ways we are just learning.  Before World War II, nearly half of coercive sterilizations were done in California, and even after the war, the state accounted for a third of all such surgeries.

California was considered the epicenter of the American eugenics movement.  During the Twentieth Century's first decades California's eugenicists included potent but little known race scientists, such as Army venereal disease specialist Dr. Paul Popenoe, citrus magnate and Polytechnic benefactor Paul Gosney, Sacramento banker Charles M. Goethe, as well as members of the California State Board of Charities and Corrections and the University of California Board of Regents.  

Eugenics would have been so much bizarre parlor talk had it not been for extensive financing by corporate philanthropies, specifically the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad forture.  They were all in league with some of America's most respected scientists hailing from such prestigious universities as Stanford, Yale, Harvard, and Princeton.  These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to server eugenics' racists aims.  

Stanford president David Starr Jordan originated the notion of "race and blood" in his 1902 racial epistle "Blood of a Nation," in which the university scholar declared that human qualities and conditions such as talent and poverty were passed through the blood. 

In 1904, the Carnegie Institution established a laboratory complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island that stockpiled millions of index cards of ordinary Americans, as researchers carefully plotted the removal of families, bloodlines and whole peoples.  From Cold Spring Harbor, eugenics advocates agitated in the legislature of America, as well as the nation's social service agencies and associations....

The Harriman railroad fortune paid local charities, such as the New York Bureau of Industries and Immigration, to seek out Jewish, Italian and other immigrants in New York and other crowded cities and subject them to deportation, trumped up confinement or forced sterilization. 

The Rockefeller Foundation helped found the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.  

Much of the spiritual guidance and political agitation for the American eugenics movement came from California's quasi-autonomous eugenic societies, such as the Pasadena-based Human Betterment Foundation and the California branch of the American Eugenics Society, which coordinated much of their activity with the Eugenics Research Society in Long Island.  These organizations -- which functioned as part of a closely-knit network--published racist eugenic newsletters and pseudo-scientific journals, such as Eugenical News and Eugenics, and propagandized for the Nazis.  

Eugenics was born as a scientific curiosity in the Victorian age.  In 1863, Sir Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin, theorized that if talented people only married other talented people, the result would be measurably better offspring.  At the turn of the last century, Galton's ideas were imported into the United States by Gregor Mendel's principles of heredity were rediscovered.  American eugenic advocates believed with religious fervor that the same Mendelian concepts determining the color and size of peas, corn and cattle also governed the social and intellectual character of man. 

In an American demographically reeling from immigration upheaval and torn by post-Reconstruction chaos, race conflict was everywhere in the early twentieth century.  Elitists, utopians and so-called "progressives" fused their smoldering race fears and class bias with their desire to make a better world.  They reinvented Galton's eugenics into a repressive and racists ideology.  The intent: populate the earth with vastly more of their own socio-economic and biological kin--and less or none of everyone else (21st Century is called GENTRIFICATION)

The superior species the eugenics movement sought was populated not merely by tall, strong, talented people.  Eugenicists craved blond, blue-eyed Nordic types.  This group along, they believed, was fit to inherit the earth. (21st Century Christian Identity Movement) In the process, the movement intended to subtract emancipated Negroes, immigrant Asian laborers, Indians, Hispanics, East Europeans, Jews, dark-haired hill folk, poor people, the infirm and really anyone classified outside the gentrified genetic lines drawn up by American raceologists. 

How?  By identifying so-called "defective" family trees and subjecting them to lifelong segregation and sterilization programs to kill their bloodlines. The grand plan was to literally wipe away the reproductive capability of those deemed weak and inferior--the so-called "unfit".  The eugenicists hoped to neutralize the viability of 10 percent of the population at a sweep, until none were left except themselves.  

Eighteen solutions were explored in a Carnegie-supported 1911 "Preliminary Report of the Committee of the Eugenic Section of the American Breeder's Association to Study and to Report on the Best Practical Means for Cutting Off the Defective Germ-Plasm in the Human Population."  Point eight was euthanasia.  

The most commonly suggested method of eugenicide in America was a "lethal chamber" or public locally operated gas chambers.  in 1918, Popenoe, the Army venereal disease specialist during World War I, co-wrote the widely used textbook, Applied Eugenics, which argued, "From a historical point of view, the first method which presents itself is execution...  Its value in keeping up the standard of the race should not be underestimated."  Applied Eugenics also devoted a chapter to "Lethal Selection," which operated "through the destruction of the individual by some adverse feature of the environment, such as excessive cold, or bacteria, or by bodily deficiency."   

Eugenics breeders believed American society was not ready to implement an organized lethal solution.  But many mental institutions and doctors practiced improvised medical lethality and passive euthanasia on their own.  one institution in Lincoln, Illinois fed its incoming patients milk from tubercular cows believing a eugenically strong individual would be immune.  Thirty to forty percent annual death rates resulted at Lincoln.  Some doctors practiced passive eugenicide one on newborn infant at a time.  Other doctors at mental institutions engaged in lethal neglect.   

Nonetheless, with eugenicide marginalized, the main solution for eugenicsts was the rapid expansion of forced segregation and sterilization, as well as more marriage restrictions.  California led the nation, performing nearly all the sterilization procedures with little or no due process.  In its first twenty-five years of eugenics legislation, California sterilized 9/782 individuals, mostly women.  Many were classified as "bad girls," diagnosed as "passionate," "oversexed'" or "sexually wayward."  At Sonoma, some women were sterilized because of what was deemed an abnormally large clitoris or labia.  

In 1933 alone, at least 1,278 coercive sterilizations were performed, 700 of which were on women.  The state's two leading sterilization mills in 1933 were Sonoma State Home with 388 operations and Patton State Hospital with 363 operations.  Other sterilization centers included Agnews, Mendocino, Napa, Norwalk, Stockton and Pacific Colony state hospitals.

Even the United States Supreme Court endorsed aspects of eugenics.  In its infamous 1927 decision, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, "It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind...  Three generations of imbeciles are enough."  The decision opened the floodgates for thousands to be coercively sterilized or otherwise persecuted as subhuman.  Years later, the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials quoted Holmes's words in their own defense.  

Only after eugenics became entrenched in the United States was the campaign transplanted into Germany, in no small measure through the efforts of California eugenicists, who published booklets idealizing sterilization and circulated them to German officials and scientists. 

Hitler studied American eugenics laws.  he tried to legitimize his antisemitism by medicalizing it, and wrapping it in the more palatable pseudo scientific facade of eugenics.  Hitler was able to recruit more followers among reasonable Germans by claiming that science was on his side.  While Hitler's race hatred sprung from his own mind, the intellectual outlines of the eugenics Hitler adopted in 1924 were made in AMERICA. 

During the '20s, Carnegie Institution eugenic scientists cultivated deep personal and professional relationships with Germany's FASCIST eugenicists.  In Mein Kampf, published in 1924, Hitler quoted American eugenic ideology and openly displayed a thorough knowledge of American eugenics.  "There is today state," wrote Hitler, "in which at least weak beginnings toward a better conception (of immigration) are noticeable.  Of course, it is not our model German Republic, but the United States."

Hitler proudly told his comrades just how closely he followed the progress of the American eugenics movement.  "I have studied with great interest," he told fellow Nazi, "the laws of several American states concerning prevention of reproduction by people whose progeny would, in all probability, be of no value or be injurious to the racial stock."

Hitler even wrote a fan letter to American eugenic leader Madison Gran calling his race-based eugenics book, "The Passing of the Great Race" his "bible."

Hitler's struggle for a superior race would be a made crusade for a Master Race.  Now, the American term "Nordic" was freely exchanged with "Germanic" or "Aryan.  Race science racial purity and racial dominance became the driving force behind Hitler's Nazism.  Nazi eugenics would ultimately dictate who would be persecuted in a Reich-dominated Europe, how people would live, and how they would DIE.  Nazi doctors would become the unseen generals in Hitler's war against the Jews and other Europeans deemed inferior.  Doctors would create the science, devise the eugenic formulas, and even hand-select the victims for sterilization, euthanasia and mass extermination.  (Weaponizing Health Workers: How Medical Professionals Were a Top Instrument in U.S. Torture Program Emails Show American Psychological Association Secretly Worked with Bush Admin to Enable Torture )

During the Reich's early years, eugenicists across America welcomed Hitler's plan as the logical fulfillment of their own decades of research and effort.  California eugenicists republished Nazi propaganda for American consumption.  They also arranged for Nazi scientific exhibits, such as an August 1934 display at the L.A. County Museum, for the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association.  

In 1934, as Germany's sterilizations were accelerating beyond 5.000 per month, the California eugenics leader C.M. Goethe upon returning from Germany ebulliently bragged to a key colleague, "You will be interested to know, that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program.  Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought...I want you, dear friend, to carry this thought with you for the rest of your life, that you have really jolted into action a great government of 60 million people."

That same year, ten years after Virgina passed its sterilization act, Joseph DeJarnette, superintendent of Virginia's Western State Hospital, observed in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, "The Germans are beating us at our own game." 

More than just providing the scientific roadmap, American funded Germany's eugenic institutions.  By 1926, Rockefeller had donated some $410,000 --- almost $4 million in 21st Century money -- to hundreds of German researchers.  In May 1926, Rockefeller awarded $250,000 to the German Psychiatric Institute of Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, later to become the Kaiser Whilhelm Institute for Psychiatry.  Among the leading psychiatrists at the German Psychiatric Institute was Ernst Rudin, who became director and eventually an architect of Hitler's systematic medical repression.  

Another in the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute's eugenic complex of institutions was the Institute for Brain Research.  Since 1915, it had operated out of a single room.  Everything changed when Rockefeller money arrived in 1929.  A grant of $317,000 allowed the Institute to construct a major building and take center stage in German race biology.  The Institute received additional grants from the Rockefeller Foundation during the next several years.  Leading the Institute, once again, was Hitler's medical henchman Ernst Rudin.  Rudin's organization became prime director and recipient of the murderous experimentation and research conducted on Jews, Gypsies and others.  

Beginning in 1940, thousands of Germans taken from old age homes, mental institutions and other custodial facilities were systematically gassed.  Between 50,000 and 100,000 were eventually killed.  

Leon Whitney, executive secretary of the American Eugenics Society declared of Nazism, "While we were pussy-footing around...the Germans were calling a spade a spade."

A special recipient of Rockefeller funding was the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity, an Eugenics in Berlin.  For decades, American eugenicists had carved twins to advance their research into heredity.  The Institute was now prepared to undertake such research on an unprecedented level.  On May 13, 1932, the Rockefeller Foundation in New York dispatched a radiogram to its Paris office:  JUNE MEETING EXEUCTIVE COMMITTEE NINE THOUSAND DOLLARS OVER THREE YEAR PERIOD TO SWG INSTITUTE ANTHROPOLOGY FOR RESEARCH ON TWINS AN EFFECTS ON LATER GENERATIONS OF SUBSTANCES TOXIC FOR GERM PLASM.  

At the time of Rockefeller endowment, Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, a hero in American Eugenics circles, functioned as a head of the Institute for Anthropology, Human Heredity and Eugenics.   Rockefeller funding of that Institute continued both directly and through other research conduits during Verschuer's early tenure.  In 1935, Verschuer left the Institute to form a rival eugenics facility in Frankfurt that was much heralded in the American eugenic press.  Research on twins in the Third Reich exploded, backed by government decrees.  Verschuer wrote in Der Erbartz, a eugenic doctor's journal he edited, that Germany's war would yield a "total solution to the Jewish problem."

Verschuer had a long-time assistant.  His name was Josef Mengele.  On May 30, 1943, Mengele arrived at Auschwitz, Verschuer notified the German Research Society, "My assistant, Dr. Josef Mengele (M.D., Ph.D.) joined me in this branch of research.  He is presently employed as Hauptsturmfuhrere (captain) and camp physician in the Auschwitz concentration camp.  Anthropological testing of the most diverse racial groups in this concentration camp is being carried out with permission of the SS Reichsfuhrere (Himmler)."

Mengele began searching the boxcar arrivals for twins.  When he found them, he performed beastly experiments, scrupulously wrote up the reports and sent the paperwork back to Verschuer's institute for evaluation.  Often, cadavers, eyes and other body parts were also dispatched to Berlin's eugenic institutes.  

Rockefeller executives never knew of Mengele.  With few exceptions, the foundation had ceased all eugenics studies in Nazi-occupied Europe before the war erupted in 1939.  But by that time the dye had been cast.  The talented men Rockefeller and Carnegie financed, the institutions they helped found, and the science it helped create took on a scientific momentum of their own. (THIS IS INACCURATE INFORMATION - HUMAN EXPERIMENTS DID CONTINUE UNTIL THE END OF THE WAR)

After the war, eugenics was declared a crime against humanity--an act of genocide.  Germans were tried and they cited the California statutes in their defense.  To no avail.  They were found guilty.  

However, Mengele's boss Verschuer escaped prosecution.  Verschuer re-established his conncections with California eugenicists who had gone underground and renamed their crusade, "human genetics."  Typical was an exchange July 25, 1946 when Popenoe wrote Verschuer, "It was indeed a pleasure to hear from you again.  I have been very anxious about my colleagues in Germany... I suppose sterilization has been discontinued in Germany?"  Popenoe offered tidbits about various American eugenic luminaries and then sent various eugenic publications.  In a separate package, Popenoe sent some cocoa, coffee, and other goodies.  

Verschuer wrote back, "Your very friendly letter of 7/25 gave me great deal of pleasure and you have my heartfelt thanks for it.  The letter builds another bridge between your and my scientific work; I hope that this bridge will never again collapse but rather make possible valuable mutual enrichment and stimulation."

Soon, Verschuer once again became a respected scientist in Germany and around the world.  In 1949, he became a corresponding member of the newly formed American Society of Human Genetics, organized y American eugenicists and geneticists.  

In the fall of 1950, the University of Munster offered Verschuer a position at its new Institute Human Genetics, where he later became a dean.  In the early and mid-1950s, Verschuer became an honorary member of numerous prestigious societies, including the Italian Society of Genetics, the Anthropological Society of Vienna, and the Japanese Society of Human Genetics.  

Human genetics' genocidal roots in eugenics were ignored by victorious generations that refused to link itself to the crimes of Nazism and by succeeding generations that never knew the truth of the years leading up to the war.  Now governors of five states, including California have issued public apologies to their citizens, past and present, for sterilization and other abuses spawned y the eugenics movement.  

Human genetics became enlightened endeavor in the late twentieth century.  Hard-working, devoted scientists finally cracked the human code through the Human Genome Project.  Now, every individual can be biologically identified and classified by trait and ancestry.  Yet even now, some leading voices in the genetic world are calling for cleansing of the unwanted among us, and even a master human species.  

There is understandable wariness about more ordinary forms of abuse, for example, in denying insurance or employment based on genetic tests.  On October 14, America's first genetic anti-discrimination legislation passed the Senate y unanimous vote.  Yet because genetics research is global, no single nation's law can stop the threats.
