The Empire… In Their Own Words


Thomas Malthus imperialism British Empire eugenics population control environmentalism ecofascism

The oligarchic principle of intentional genocide shines through clearly in these citations from leading spokesmen for the British Empire, spanning over 200 years. It is only by identifying the true ideological strain that is at the heart of both “right wing” monetarist, and “left wing” ecological thinking in the modern world that true humanists may both understand and recognize the solution to our many sided crises now pressing upon our future.

1791, Parson Thomas Malthus, hired pen of the British East India Company’s Haileybury College, wrote in his An Essay on Population in 1799: “We should facilitate, instead of foolishly and vainly endeavoring to impede, the operations of nature in producing this mortality; and if we dread the too frequent visitation of the horrid form of famine, we should sedulously encourage the other forms of destruction, which we compel nature to use. In our towns we should make the streets narrower, crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague.

More from MalthusAn Essay on the Principle of Population:

“We are bound in justice and honour formally to disdain the right of the poor to support.”

“To this end, I should propose a regulation to be made, declaring that no child born from any marriage taking place after the expiration of a year from the date of the law, and no illegitimate child born two years from the same date, should ever be entitled to parish assistance.

“The infant is, comparatively speaking, of little value to society, as others will immediately supply its place.”  (more...)
