The Konformist - Giuliani, the
Manhattan Institute, and Eugenics:
The Ugly Truth Behind "Quality of Life"
Wed, 29 Mar 2000
(1 of 13) [04/24/2002 10:21:51 PM]
" There are economic and social aspects of Eugenics distinct from
the blatant hatred of anti-Semitism or the anti-Black prejudice that's
common in the U.S. Often the justifications offered by proponents of
Eugenics focus on economic and social gains to society that can be
achieved by its application.
Mayor Giuliani's defenders claim he's not a racist. In a very limited
sense they may be right. The Mayor's ideology in terms of race and
Eugenics focuses on economic issues and so-called quality of life.
Let us not forget however that the main justification the Southern States offered for slavery was also economic as was Hitler's justification for euthanizing and sterilizing millions of German
citizens, for invading Eastern Europe and to a large extent for the Holocaust itself.
German business interests reaped huge economic benefits from the Holocaust and from the application by the Nazis of Eugenics.
Here in New York City, business interests also have been the prime beneficiaries of Giuliani's Eugenics based policies.
Eugenics treats human beings as breeding stock, like farm
animals. Eugenicists are preoccupied with issues of racial superiority, racial mixing, racial degeneration and the effects on modern economic society of race generally. So-called "positive" Eugenics deals with promoting socially and economically advantageous human breeding
while "negative" Eugenics focuses on the culling out of those with undesirable traits. "
2"Long before Hitler created German laws requiring forcible sterilization, euthanasia and his ultimate Eugenics program, the Holocaust, the pioneers of Eugenics who originated Hitler's ideas were British and American scientists.
With the financial backing of some of the world's most famous industrialists like John D. Rockefeller, Cecil Rhodes, Andrew Carnegie and Henry Ford, they were able to promote Eugenics to an amazingly successful degree.
Thanks to a century of propaganda distorting and disguising their real purposes, the influential foundations these men endowed with
their wealth are viewed as humanitarian, even as mankind's hope for salvation.

Axis of Evil: Another Manhattan Institute Slogan in Service to the NWO by Robert Lederman
The man who coined GW's now infamous slogan, "Axis of Evil" was a senior fellow
at the Manhattan Institute (MI) before joining the Bush administration. He's just been
dropped from the Bush payroll according to the Washington Times [see article below].
MI also coined the slogan, "Compassionate Conservatism" for GW, who publicly claims
the Rockefeller-funded organizations' influence on his thinking is, "second only to the Holy Bible".
What is the Manhattan Institute?
MI is a right wing think tank founded in 1978 by William Casey,
Following WWII Casey helped bring thousands of former Nazis
involved in eugenics and the Holocaust to the U.S. As CIA director
he later funded bin Laden and Co. with billions in arms, terrorist
training and cash and was also a key player in arming the Contras.
MI is funded by JP Morgan/Chase bank (owned by David Rockefeller) and by pharmaceutical companies (Pfizer and Lilly)
directly connected to Rockefeller, Bush senior and many of the current Bush administration officials.
Bush senior was director of Eli Lilly in the late 70's. Bush Budget director Mitch Daniels
was also a Lilly senior executive.
Donald Rumsfeld formerly headed Searle
All of these companies depend in large
part for their products on research originally
done by the IG Farben ( BAYER) chemical
cartel in Nazi Germany.
Rockefeller's Chase bank was among Hitler's biggest U.S.
supporters before and during WWII. The Rockefeller families'
Standard Oil of NJ was half owner of IG Farben - the industrial
base of the entire Third Reich. GW Bush's grandfather, Prescott
Bush and Prescott's father-in-law George Herbert Walker (who
GW is named after) were Wall Street bankers whose fortune was
made operating and financing shipping companies, banks and
steel foundries for the Nazi regime.
MI's most famous alumni after Rudy Giuliani is Charles Murray author of
"The Bell Curve" a modern classic of eugenics. The Bell Curve popularized
the idea that Blacks are genetically inferior in intelligence to Whites as a
justification for eliminating welfare, increasing so-called quality of life
arrests, limiting parole, taking children from Black families etc.
Murray was a paid consultant on Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson's
welfare program and is a spokesman for the Federalist Society, which has
direct ties to a number of current U.S. Supreme Court Judges.
Thompson's #2 man on welfare reform was Jason Turner, who Rudy Giuliani
later hired to head up NYC's welfare reform.
Turner actually quoted the motto from the gates of Auschwitz to explain Giuliani's
workfare policy and was later forced to apologize. Rudy Giuliani also claims to get
all of his ideas directly from MI. Many of his policy ideas are directly based on
MI has spearheaded a decades long effort to make the goals of eugenics
respectable again. The Bush family, the Harriman family (the Wall Street
business partners of Bush in financing Hitler) and the Rockefeller family
are the elite of the American eugenics movement.

Eugenics: More alive than
ever by Robert Lederman
At the end of the eugenics article below are a
sample of these quotes which I've spent eight
years compiling. Robert Lederman
Excerpted from THE WASHINGTON TIMES 2/26/2002
'Axis of evil' writer leaves Bush's staff author: Robert Stacy McCain "David Frum, credited with authoring the headline "axis of evil" phrase in President Bush's State
of the Union address, has left the White House speechwriting staff.
"It has been the experience of a lifetime and it's been the honor of a lifetime to
be here during this presidency," Mr. Frum said in a telephone interview yesterday. "
I leave with nothing but the highest regard for all of my colleagues."...
Mr. Frum specifically denied commentator Robert Novak's claim, made yesterday on CNN's "Inside Politics," that he was ousted from the speechwriting team because the
president was angered by an e-mail from Mr. Frum's wife that became public this month.
Author Danielle Crittenden e-mailed friends after the Jan. 29 State of the Union
address expressing "wifely pride" that her husband had contributed the "axis of evil" phrase.
Mrs. Crittenden's e-mail was published in an Internet journal by writer
As for his role in the "axis of evil" speech, Mr. Frum said: "I contributed language to
the president's speech. That is what I was paid to do.
But what matters is not the language that is proposed to the president; what matters
is the language the president decides to use. ...
The words become important only because the president uses them."
He praised Mr. Bush, saying, "I began [the White House job] thinking he would be a good president, but I go thinking he's
proven himself to be one of the great presidents of American history."

"Who are you with? Who are you with?" People started looking,
so he made a joke: "Make sure you get it right."
But he kept at it: "Who do you write for?"
>I told him I wasn't "with" anybody and pointed to one of his staff people who knows me a little, and said, "Ask him, he'll tell you." Then I split.

"Did you really tell the President that he was doing a

Fun With Anarchy
Contrary to the commonly-held belief that eugenics programs ceased at
the end of WW2, this pseudo-science has merely changed it's terminology
and undergone a public relations makeover, retooled by think tanks like the
Manhattan Institute. Today, eugenics is alive and well under the guise of
such seemingly unrelated things as The Human Genome Project, genetic
alteration of the food supply, U.N. population control measures, mandatory
vaccinations, pesticide misuse, welfare reform, school vouchers, efforts to
institute a national I.D., the war on drugs and the ever-expanding prison
Nowhere has the new eugenics - or as it
was nicknamed by the Manhattan Institute
"compassionate conservatism" -
become public policy as thoroughly
as in New York City under the administration
of Rudy Giuliani.

Eugenics is practiced in many nations today and
depending on who is behind it the targeted groups
can be Blacks, Jews, Muslims, Africans, gays, the
poor or any one else those in power wish to
downsize or eliminate. Hard as it may be for most
Americans to comprehend, the entire population
of this nation is increasingly finding itself subject
to eugenics-based policies.
If this sounds far-fetched ask yourself where issues such
as rationing medical care and the so-called right-to-die are
headed? Americans may someday find themselves asked
to die for their country for economic rather than national
Nowhere else on earth did the ideas of eugenics reach such a complete
marriage to a government's policies as in Nazi Germany. While Nazi Germany
may have been defeated, many of it's ideas are alive and well and have found
a welcome reception here in the U.S.
In a sense, the thousands of actual Nazis that were brought
to the U.S.following WWII by men such as CIA director and
founder of the Manhattan Institute, William Casey, were
coming home to the source of the eugenics policies that
made Nazi Germany infamous. In our nation's medical,
military and educational establishments they found like-
minded people of enormous influence who were more
than ready to make use of their experience. Most
importantly, they found unlimited funding from the
Rockefeller family and it's maze of philanthropies,
medical research institutions and media outlets.
I tend to focus to a great degree on the Manhattan
Institute, and for good reason. It is funded by
Rockefeller's JP Morgan Chase bank, which admits
it enthusiastically helped Hitler through much of WWII.
Rockefeller's Standard Oil was half-owner of IG Farben, the industrial powerhouse of Nazi Germany.
Among it's claims to fame, I.G. Farben was the builder and operator ofAuschwitz and forty other slave labor death camps. Bayer, BASF and numerous other pharmaceutical and chemical companies are
subsidiaries of I.G. Farben.
(Some have requested larger fonts ED.
& spell checking below find larger fonts .)
Both Rudy Giuliani and GW Bush claim they get their
ideas directly from the Manhattan Institute.
MI is responsible for the academic reputation of Charles Murray, author of the Bell Curve, a modern classic of eugenics which advances the idea that Blacks are genetically inferior as a justification to cut government
social programs. Most of the research the Bell Curve cites
was funded by the Pioneer Fund, an openly pro-eugenics
and pro-Nazi group with extensive ties to the entire white supremacy movement.
Murray wrote The Bell Curve during eight years as MI's top resident scholar.
His ideas and works are promoted to this day on their website and formed the
basis of Giuliani's welfare reform, homelessness, quality of life, school
voucher and privatization campaigns. GW Bush claims MI's influence on his
ideas is second only to the Bible.
In short, we now live in a society almost as eugenically-
oriented as Nazi Germany was.
There are two significant differences.
One is that OUR eugenics policy is NOT directed specifically
at Jews (Honerary Whites ED.) but tends to focus, at least for now, on Blacks, Native Americans, Latinos and impoverished Whites.
"So abely denagrated as bafoons onTV shows like the by the "Jerry Springer Show" "ED.
"So now there is silence ?
Remember to Remember
Hitler began with Killing the Blacks of Germany !!!ED.
The second difference is that our eugenics policy uses
terminology which unlike that used in Nazi Germany never
acknowledges what it is really about.
Imagine a Nazi propaganda campaign intended to
convince Jews that plans for their extermination
were based on compassion and you'd have the
situation we are now witnessing today.

To fight eugenics in light of this reality we must first
overcome two very mistaken ideas.

"The City Journal [ MI's quarterly magazine ] is important not only because
it has played a key role in the urban renaissance of recent years. It is
important, too, for the lessons it provides other think-tanks. These
institutions, some of them based in Washington and focused on one
aspect or another of national domestic and foreign policy, others
concentrating on regional affairs or, as with the Manhattan Institute,
on policy at the state and local level, are rapidly replacing our universities
as homes for scholars who seek to escape the stultifying politically correct
atmosphere of campus life.
In the case of the Manhattan Institute, we have it to thank not only for the
City Journal but for supporting the research of such leading scholars as
Charles Murray, whose Losing Ground has gone from a shockingly radical
prescription for welfare reform to mainstream public policy in a few short

"Absent in the sticky Philadelphia heat was the drumbeat of the
fire-breathing, nay-saying Christian Right.
In its place, singing the praises of the Jesus-influenced candidate
and following a script laid out by the Manhattan Institute, were Reverend
Herbert H. Lusk II, the former "Praying Tailback" for the Philadelphia
Eagles, whose Greater Exodus Baptist Church had been transformed
into a Republican revivalist stomping ground, and Stephen Goldsmith,
the ex-mayor of Indianapolis, who is Dubya's main domestic-policy adviser.
In June, Reverend Lusk told a GOP platform-drafting committee in Billings,
Montana, that private, faith-based groups, such as his People for People,
are better purveyors of social-welfare services than government welfare
"The fact is, we are there we do it better, andwe do it cheaper," Reverend
Lusk said. In the background on Sunday, thundering the gospel of the
black church, was a mass choir. After an inspiring musical opening,
the social scientists from the Manhattan Institute rolled out their charts
and reported that kids who go to church in poor neighborhoods do
fewer drugs and thus, churches, mosques, and synagogues "should
be supported as uniquely qualified agencies of social control that matter
a great deal in the lives of adolescents in America's most disorganized
and impoverished communities."

The Manhattan Institute: Launch Pad For Conservative Authors
"The Manhattan Institute was founded in 1978 by William Casey, who later
became President Reagan's CIA director. Since then, the Institute's track
record with authors has been notable. Funneling money from very conservative
foundations, the Institute has sponsored many books by writers opposed to
safety-net social programs and affirmative action...Charles Murray's Losing
Ground -- a denunciation of social programs for the poor -- catapulted him
to media stardom in 1984. More than a dozen years later, the Philadelphia
Inquirer (10/13/97) recalled that Losing Ground "provided much of the
intellectual groundwork for welfare reform." As Murray wrote in the book's
preface, the decision by Manhattan Institute officials to subsidize the book
project was crucial: "Without them, the book would not have been
written."...When Murray appeared on ABC's This Week (11/28/93), host David
Brinkley introduced him with lavish praise as "the author of a much-admired,
much-discussed book called Losing Ground, which is a study of our social
problems." Minutes later, Murray was explaining his solution: "I want to get
rid of the whole welfare system, period, lock, stock and barrel -- if you
don't have any more welfare, you enlist a lot more people in the community
to help take care of the children that are born. And the final thing that
you can do, if all else fails, is orphanages."...: Shortly after The Bell
Curve was published [in late 1994], the Institute sponsored a luncheon to
honor Murray and the book, in which he proposes a genetic explanation for
the 15-point difference in IQ between blacks and whites that is the basis
for his dismissing affirmative action policies as futile."...Along with
ongoing subsidies from a number of large conservative foundations, the
Manhattan Institute has gained funding from such corporate sources as the
Chase Manhattan Bank, Citicorp, Time Warner, Procter & Gamble and State
Farm Insurance, as well as the Lilly Endowment and philanthropic arms of
American Express, Bristol-Myers Squibb, CIGNA and Merrill Lynch. Boosted
by major firms, the Manhattan Institute budget reached $5 million a year by
the early 1990s."

Embracing Chaos: The Complexity of the Firesign Theatre
Phil Proctor, Firesign Theatre Speaking at Embracing Complexity Sponsored by the Ernst & Young Center for Business Innovation
and Complexity Magazine August 4,1998 Cambridge, MA
Everything is a business. And the business has to do with getting yourself--Gary Burton was saying it.
Getting out to the audience. You can rehearse and rehearse. But you want to eventually get out there
and speak to people. And see if you get feedback. And see if they like what you're doing. They buy
your product. If they want you to continue your career because that's the way the Firesign Theater
happened. We were created by a word which is now--everybody will recognize. It's called narrow casting.
There wasn't any such thing when we did our first records. But we got a core audience of bright people
who went with us in the direction that we were creating and they liked it and they wanted more of it.
And it was enough of them to make people at Columbia Records stand up in a meeting and say,
"These guys are doing something extraordinary. We've got to keep it going." So this time we had no
record company. Columbia is basically--they're not doing what they used to do. And we're part of what's
known as the legacy series which means that they're lifting their leg on us because we're in bins. We're
We're not out in the bins anymore, Firesign Theater. We're in some dusty shelf somewhere.
So we shifted around and we ended up at Rhino Records. Rhino Records is a very successful company.
And they're very successful because they started from the point of view of nostalgia, marketing nostalgia. Which is a wonderful service. Because it saved for all of us the kind of music and material that otherwise would have really been lost to our social consciousness.
And it profited those who created it. So that there is a continuity for the artists
and the producers and the musicians who created music and other forms of art.

Land mines are usually very simple devices and readily manufactured anywhere. There are two basic types
of mines: anti-vehicle or anti-tank (AT) mines, and anti-personnel (AP) mines. AT mines are comparatively
large (0.8 - 4 kg explosive), often laid in unsealed roads or potholes, and detonate when a vehicle drives over
They are typically activated by force (>100 kg), magnetic influence, or remote control. AP mines are much
smaller (80 - 250g explosive) and are usually activated by force (3 - 7kg) or tripwires.
AP mines can be classified as:
Blast mines, often with minimal metal content, which are buried in the ground. These mines destroy any
object (even metal) in close proximity (within 300 mm) such as a foot. The fragments of the destroyed object
often breaks into fragments which are blasted upwards at high speed. It is often these "secondary" fragments
which do most damage.
Fragmentation mines, which throw fragments (usually metal) outwards at high speed. These mines can inflict
casualties up to 200 metres away, and kill at shorter distances. They are often used as ambush weapons.
The metal content makes them easier to detect. One type of fragmentation mine, the bounding fragementation
mine,is buried in the ground, but jumps up to about 1 metre above the ground when activated, and then explodes sending lethal fragments to about 200 metres away.

CIA Admits Nazi Connection
by Robert Lederman
Conspicuous by its silence the CIA owned and influenced media
did virtually no coverage of what may be one of the decades
biggest stories. Only UPI issued any statement on the CIA's
admission that following WW II Hitler's top general in charge of
espionage transferred his entire network of thousands of spies
and double agents to what became the newly-formed CIA.
What makes this much more than an interesting footnote to
history is that the entire domestic and foreign history of the CIA
has been molded by these former Nazis whose ideas on Eugenics,
race, social control, biowarfare and propaganda dominate the
policies of countless "think tanks" like the Rockefeller-funded
Manhattan Institute and have influenced the U.S. government at
its highest levels.
During the past five decades numerous isolated revelations about
Nazis imported to America by the Dulles brothers, William Casey
and others have broken through the media blackout.
|MI is a right wing think tank founded in 1978 by William Casey, Bush/Reagan's CIA director. Following WWII Casey helped bring thousands of former Nazis involved in eugenics and the Holocaust
to the U.S. As CIA director he later funded bin Laden and Co. with
billions in arms, terrorist training and cash and was also a key player
in arming the Contras.
These stories usually revolve around former concentration camp
guards who hid their identity when emigrating. What makes this
different is that General Ghelen was the #1 Nazi in this program.
By acknowledging a CIA connection to Ghelen the entire can of
worms can now be pried open.

Writing about Martin Bernal?s Black Athena 1 and its reception in the US is a
formidable task. Few, if any scholars can claim competence on the numerous
questions this book raises. 2 The prehistory of the Aegean world, Egyptology,
Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Archeology, Linguistics, Classics, the history of
philosophy and politics in Europe from antiquity to modern times, the history
of scholarship?these are just some of the fields that Bernal touches. Hence, it
was with some reluctance that I accepted the assignment to talk and write
about this topic. The thought that the main part of my paper would not be
about the assessment of Bernal?s claims (about which more competent
scholars have written extensively 3 ), but rather about the fierce debate that his
theses have triggered was small consolation because it meant I had to venture
into fields I find even more alien, such as education and politics in the US.
However, I believe that it is important for academics in Europe to learn more
about this debate, not only because it has provoked such an immense amount
of attention to the classical world but also because it can serve as an example
for intellectual developments in the US which few Europeans know about.
Moreover, I am convinced that it would be at our own risk, and to our own
detriment, if we chose to ignore such developments or derided them as an
American eccentricity that does not affect academics (and politics) in Europe.
As I will try to show, we had better take these questions seriously since they
are bound to be raised in Europe as well, and Classicists especially here in
Germany have every reason to learn the lessons which this debate can teach
us. Hence, although lacking the competence to speak authoritatively about all
the questions involved, I have followed the discussion in scholarly and
popular publications during a recent stay in the US, and I hope that an eye-
witness account will be useful for intellectuals here in Europe.

My paper will be structured in three parts. Although this will not be (yet)
another review of Black Athena, the first part will give a summary of Bernal?s
main theses and the scholarly reactions to them. In the second part, I will try
to describe and analyze the wider implications of this academic debate. For
many classicists, it was probably Bernal?s book and the use that some
quarters made of its conclusions which brought the phenomenon of
Afrocentrism to their attention. Afrocentrism itself has to be understood
within the wider context of American discussions about equal rights for and
emancipation of ethnic minorities, especially African-Americans,
multiculturalism and identity politics. I will try to analyze the ways in which
the debate about Black Athena relates to these issues and to current political
problems such as the controversies about affirmative action or curricula in
history. Finally, I will give a (necessarily brief) outline of the importance this
debate has for classicists in Europe, especially in Germany. I will argue that
the society in our countries is bound to face similar problems with our own
minorities and that we should try to avoid some of the mistakes which have
exacerbated the controversy in the US. Finally, I will show that classicists in
Germany have a special obligation to pursue the question raised by Black
Athena whether our profession was and is influenced by racist assumptions.

The left, if it has the capacity to self-organize out of its oblivion,

(The following is excerpted from
WHY PEOPLE BELIEVE WEIRD THINGS:
& Other Confusions of our Time
(W. H. Freeman, 1997) by Michael Shermer)
The Most Precious Thing We Have:
The Difference Between Science and Pseudoscience
"If there is any science that I am capable of promoting, I think it is the science of science
itself, the science of investigation, or method."
John Stuart Mill
By Michael Shermer © 1997
Cultures that encourage the development of science and technology
will be progressive.Cultures that inhibit the development of science and
technology will be nonprogressive. This does not make one culture
better than another culture, or one way of life more moral than another
way of life, or one people happier than another people.
But if an individual or group desires a lifestyle that includes the vast
diversity of knowledge and artifacts, cherishes novelty and change,
seeks an ever-growing standard of living as defined in the Industrial
West, then a progressive system based on science and technology
will produce that culture.
No doubt, in this age of ?political correctness? where most peoples of
the world have not shared this bias of science and progress (and are
seen to have been exploited by this philosophy), this is not a popular
position. Among academics as well, the word ?progress?has taken on
a pejorative meaning, implying superiority over those who have not
progressed as far. In my oral doctoral defense I was firmly advised by
my committee to replace the modifier ?progress? with ?change? when
referring to science. My response to those who challenge the validity
of science and the scientific method as a means of understanding
causality in the world, is to quote one of the greatest scientists of the
20th century, if not the millennium, Albert Einstein:
"One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured
against reality, is primitive and childlike?and yet it is the most precious
thing we have. That is the fundamental difference between science and
