THE POPULATION FLUSH CYCLE, by Dr. Steven Nur Ahmed

Sheeple

There is a population flush cycle. It churns the population of the United States as if in a blender at the whim of the power elite. At the turn of the 20th century, 88% of all immigrants to the United States were white Europeans. They were allowed to immigrate into America because its 19th century population size was too sparse to fuel its industrial revolution and its consequent consumption boom. In order for the power elite of the gilded age to prosper financially and to maintain ‘white supremacy’, all three conditions had to occur simultaneously.

Sparsely populated territory in the United States was a major problem for the power elite of that time. Land defined national identity. Without manpower, such land could not be held nor developed. Without the manpower to neither hold the land by military force nor develop it by slave or cheap indentured servant labor Britain could not justify it as part of their colonial empire nor could the newly formed United States justify itself as a new nation.[1]

To solve both the problems of 1. removal of unwanted populations and 2. under-population, they employed ‘population flush’.  Population flush involved forcefully pushing indigenous people off their land while simultaneously attracting Europeans to the land and forcefully importing Africans onto the land so that both those populations could hold and develop the land in the name of the newly founded United States.[2]

Population Flush

Periodically and depending on social, economic, and military needs and circumstances, the power elite will turn the immigration ‘on’ switch to full throttle because they need human bodies for material exploitation just like any other natural resource. It is the vast force of immigrant instinctual energy that the power elite wish to harness to build and drive their empire to total world domination.

More and more Europeans were allowed to immigrate into the United States because it was important for the power elite to maintain institutional white supremacy. The U.S. Congress defined the constitutional phrase ‘free persons’ as ‘free white persons’. Thus, white supremacy was the law of the land. Secondly, because African American slave women had a much higher fertility rate than any other ethnic group in the United States.

African American females had 8 babies per female between the ages of 15 and 45 in 1800 compared to Caucasian females’ fertility rate of 7 babies per female for the same age range. Had it not been that millions of white people were imported into the United States, America would have become naturally racially integrated much earlier in the 20th century than it did. What initially drove down fertility rates was urbanization and industrialization. But that necessitated an ever increasing influx of ‘white persons’ from Europe in order to maintain white supremacy in numbers and in political and police power.

Furthermore, booming service sectors, as well as coal, iron, and oil industries necessitated bodies to work in them, but not black bodies. Military involvement in World War I necessitated millions of soldiers. So white males immigrated to the United States and assumed employment in the growing manufacturing and military industries. They were limited only by their own natural limitations. Black people were segregated by law at the turn of the 20th century.[3]

The European immigrant tsunami continued to reverberate throughout the early and middle 20th century. Through a major depression white men and women got relief through the Social Security Act of 1935, the Minimum Wage Act of 1938, The Welfare Act of 1935, and ‘the Works Progress Administration program’ or WPA under the Roosevelt ‘New Deal’.

After World War II, white men and women benefited from the: Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944 or the G.I. Bill.[4] They bought homes and they and their children attended colleges and Universities for free. America was at its peak. It afforded to the White Supremacists’ baby boom generations a historically unparalleled experience of affluence in the United States.  They have come to be called ‘Greatest Generation’ but in truth they were the ‘greatest racially privileged generation of all time’. But what goes up must come down so says the law of gravity.

During this same several decades a shift slowly occurred.  Both black and white women started to have fewer babies. By 1970, the fertility rate for black women had fallen to 3 per female between 15 and 45 and for white women it had fallen even more to 2 babies per female for the same age group.  And now in 2016, for black women a fertility rate of 1.8 and for white women a fertility rate of 1.9, both beneath replacement level.[5]

What happened? What stopped the baby boom in its tracks? Why is America now compelled to import spermatozoa and ova?

The answer is simple. First in 1959-60 the birth control pill was approved by the FDA and introduced into the market place via hospitals and family physicians. Secondly, in 1972-73 the United States Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, made abortion legal. Since that year there have been over 56,000,000 abortions had by U.S. women. That number nearly offsets the approximately 66,000,000 baby boomer babies born between 1946 and 1964. Thirdly, manufacturing jobs have been steadily exported overseas to exploit cheap labor. That has made the cost of living rise far too high for many Americans to have large families or even to get married early in their 20s. It has been recently reported by the Pew Research Center that 36% of all men 18 to 31 live at home with their parents.[6]  Three reasons were given:

Declining employment. In 2012, 63% of 18- to 31-year-olds had jobs, down from the 70% of their same-aged counterparts who had jobs in 2007. In 2012, unemployed Millennials were much more likely than employed Millennials to be living with their parents (45% versus 29%).

Rising college enrollment. In March 2012, 39% of 18- to 24-year-olds were enrolled in college, up from 35% in March 2007. Among 18 to 24 year olds, those enrolled in college were much more likely than those not in college to be living at home – 66% versus 50%.

Declining marriage. In 2012 just 25% of Millennials were married, down from the 30% of 18- to 31-year-olds who were married in 2007. Today’s unmarried Millennials are much more likely than married Millennials to be living with their parents (47% versus 3%).”

In 1960, the median age at first marriage in the United States was 22.8 years for males and 20.3 for females compared to 28.2 years for males and 26.1 for females in 2010.

Those statistical figures signal to the power elite that African Americans who are descendants of slaves will soon be finished as a viable population in the United States. Descendants of slaves will generally be unable to compete in the economy except in the entertainment markets including sports. 

The power elite are those owners and CEOs of the most powerful and wealthiest corporations and financial institutions in the United States.They are not necessarily those individuals listed in Forbes Fortune 500. The 100 wealthiest Americans are not necessarily of the power elite because power and wealth do not always go together. One may be rich and not powerful. But power always goes with wealth, military and police force.

If we assume all present social and economic trends remain steady in slave quarters within inner city communities, what can we predict? We can predict that descendants of slaves will for all intents and purposes disappear as a politically and economically relevant ethnic group by the end of the 21st century. As the sociologist Sidney M. Wilhelm asked back in 1970: “Who Needs the Negro?”

The same holds true for lower and middle class white men and women. They now are coming to realize that being ‘white’ is not enough to get economic privilege in the new world order.

Already, the white middle class which for the last 70 years has brought home the bread and butter for Uncle Sam is now held up solely by credit debt. It is becoming more and more difficult to keep up the façade of middle class status and conspicuous consumption.

Most middle and lower class families have an income to debt ratio which is heavily tilted on the side of debt. That is also reflected in the national ‘debt to GDP’ ratio. Both they and the Federal government are for all practical purposes bankrupt.

The demise of white people in the United States is also evidenced by the life-span for white males. It is falling lower and lower every year. And this is just the beginning. It was reported in the April 20, 2016 edition of the Wall Street Journal that: The number of years a white American born in 2014 could be expected to live fell to 78.8 years from 78.9 years the year before, according to the CDC. The change was driven largely by women.”

However, elite white males with higher incomes which allow them to afford new stem cell treatment health care can expect to become the new ‘Alpha’ males in the ‘Brave New World’ they are now engineering with biotechnology and robotics. They will live long, healthy, wealthy lives.

Those are just simply the facts. Those facts are not presented by me to be a moral argument. Though I do have a moral position. Rather, those facts beg a question: why did the United States Supreme Court sanction the abortion of millions of babies? Could they not foresee that the nation would become dependent on importing millions upon millions of immigrants to fill the population vacuum? Immigrants who are not acculturated to the American way of life. There is an answer.

Global-Hands-Public-Domain

The power elite do not want a settled population with family roots dating back 400 years to colonial times. They do not want a historically knowledgeable population, a population of critical thinkers, a population of people who now know for instance that both the Republican and Democratic political parties are corrupt and corrosive to the very fabric of our democratic process. The power elite prefer a climate of social and political confusion and lower class cultural and economic instability.

The power elite want public confusion because they thrive in environments rich with political and economic confusion. For them, confusion is a resource. With it, they are better able to manipulate a docile population from their Tower of Babel.

The power elite want a population already conditioned to live under dictatorships and authoritarian governments of every kind. They want a population with a high tolerance for both political corruption and death squad law enforcement. They want a population willing to pay 50% of their wages in Taxation. They want a population which having not known the tradition of freedom will be willing to sign freedom away for a bag of Cheetos. That is the answer. That is why we are now in the height of a population flush cycle.

Today, the population of the United States is simply a human resource. Like a fossil fuel, Americans are burnt up, their energy exploited at the whim and pleasure of the power elite, and then when they have become old they are discarded as waste one generation after another onto a pile of human refuse. For it is the power elite who control the levers of an ever oscillating population flush cycle to serve their purposes.

THE CAPITALIST MYSTIQUE, by Dr. Steven Nur Ahmed

Greedy Capitalist Pig

Historically, African, Latino, Asian, and Native Americans have suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous economic fortune in the United States. Africans were enslaved; Latinos’ were victims of larceny in violation of the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution and were economically exploited under the Brocero program of 1942; Asians’ land and property was taken in direct violation of the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution; and criminal larceny was committed against all Native American tribes . We could go on but just these few facts reveal something very important.

Let’s face an undeniable fact about the theory of capitalism. Capitalism is not natural law; it is a theory. A rational theory differs radically from a ‘law of nature’. A rational theory is imperfectly applied to ever changing circumstances whereas natural law is constant.

The law of gravity, for example, is a claim that asserts a direct relation between the sum of masses and an indirect relation to their distance from one another squared. Gravity has been proven to exist naturally by experimentation.  It holds true everywhere in the known universe according to astrophysicists. The gravitational relation between masses is not guided by an ‘invisible hand’ in the universe not even the hand of God.

Capitalism on the other hand is not natural, it is artificial.  Capitalism is a rational belief system; it is guided by human hands.

The theory of capitalism is the brain child of Adam Smith.  Adam Smith was not a scientist; Adam Smith was an ethical and economic philosopher.  If you have gone to college then you know that your first course on economics taught you some fundamental assumptions about the market place as it is assumed to work in an open market. First there is supply and demand. 

Understand that there is no ‘natural relation’ between the supply and demand of goods and services. That is because according to Adam Smith, both supply and demand are mediated by an ‘invisible hand’ in the market place. Supply can be anything natural or artificial and demand may or may not exist from moment to moment or even from season to season because it depends on human choice. So, the relation between supply and demand is a game of chance; it is not universally constant as gravity is.  Your best example is the depression of the 1930s.

Furthermore, you were taught something about the value assigned to goods and services that are distributed to you through the market place.  You were taught some other correlations. You were told that as demand for goods and services increase there is an increase in their ‘price’ or value, but that if the supply of goods and services is greater than demand for them then prices for goods and services will decrease. Do you remember all of those red, green, and black curves in the book!

Here is something you probably came to understand while taking notes in that class. One, the course was taught like it was physics when it was presented to you. That is the ‘mystique’ of the system as presented to you.

And two, if there is an ‘invisible hand’ manipulating the supply of goods and services in the market place by reducing production of goods and rolling back services or increasing them, then prices can be manipulated to go up or down at will. Therefore, capitalism is not natural law; Capitalism is an art.

If capitalism is an art then it can be done away with and replaced by another kind of economy or it is a system which can be adjusted depending upon human needs under any given circumstance at any time. What that means is that our priorities must be rearranged. 

Which is more important?  Do human beings collectively and individually have greater value than the market place or do the products in the market place have greater value than the human beings who made them? I think you know the answer to those questions. 

History suggests that in each generation some people are recruited and socialized to think illogically about the value of all human life. They arrive at the conclusion that they are inherently better than other people and indeed the total environment.  We have evidence to prove that. 

America was founded upon capitalism. Any serious student of the United States Constitution knows that.

We Americans know that during the era of slavery, indentured servitude, and later under ‘Jim Crow’ and ‘share cropping’ in the southern states, the exploitation of others’ labor was qualified as more important than human rights.

So we know that pure capitalism can place the market place above entire ethnic and gender classifications of human beings as a more important priority. That very qualification which capitalism implies is that without capitalism a quality life on earth would not be possible.  That is a lie and here is why it is a lie.   

It we follow the logic of that propaganda then what kind of justice would we be compelled to validate?  If justice has to do with how, when, where, how much, and to whom we distribute benefits to people in society then by our sentiments and actions we are certainly not validating equal justice because in our market place the ‘invisible hand’ has caused extreme inequality of resource distribution in the United States and all over the world. Most people have barely enough to subsist on or nothing at all.

The ‘invisible hand’ is the hand of exclusion. It pushes some people away from the fruits of their labor and allows others to indulge in fruit that they do not deserve.

In fact, the invisible hand may be a metaphor for ‘power’.  If that is so, then the market place is tied to instinctually based anxieties which give rise to conscious rationalizations for discriminatory use of power by the haves against the have-nots.

Capitalism is used to justify the discriminatory use of state power.   The ‘invisible hand’ snatches from most people their time and energy used to produce benefits and gives to a minority of other people benefits they do not deserve.  

Market place exclusion by the ‘invisible hand’ is the result of intentional injustice. That kind of injustice is criminal. It is criminal because it is intentional and because it wrongs human beings and more generally it wrongs nature so that a few people can control and benefit from all of the wealth produced by the majority of people. That kind of market place is not the result of natural law.

If we do not follow the logic of that kind of propaganda then what kind of justice would a more precise of kind logical reasoning compel us to validate? 

If justice has to do with how, when, where, how much, and to whom we distribute benefits to in society then a more just society would result from the application of proportionate justice. That would be a form of justice predicated on a person’s belonging to humanity not on an artificially measured kind of worth.

Proportionate justice is a method of distributing the values of society according to what a person deserves as a result of his or her own efforts in his or her life time. We do not have such a system of proportionate justice in the United States.  We do not have a system of justice based upon merit. For example, most wealth in the United States is inherited wealth.  Twenty-seven (27%) percent of all wealth in the United States is inherited by 1% of the population or wealth is owned by corporations or some form of government. 

And here is yet another example. Most African Americans are the descendents of slaves.  Slave labor was exploited to build up the capital base of the United States. But the descendants of slaves have not been given any financial proportionate justice in the form of reparations to them for unpaid wages justly due to slaves during slavery.

As a consequence, the total average amount of wealth owned by African Americans today in the United States is about $4,000.00 dollars compared to Euro-Americans’ average of $88,000.00 dollars.  African Americans were cheated by a capitalist market place wherein they do not get proportionate justice.

It is amazing that right wing conservatives in the United States will criticize the theory of evolution but cannot tolerate criticism of the theory of capitalism. Evolution assumes that change is inevitable while the one percenters struggle to prevent change.
