In this blog I will write about what some of the members of the Club of Rome had to say and how this is all related to what the world is going through right now.
At a conference in Washington to mark the publication of his team study for the Club of Rome “Limits to Growth” back in the 70s Professor Dennis Meadows had stated:
“When global population is doubling every 33 years when resource consumption is doubling every 20 years no long-term view of mankind can proceed without first forming some preliminary answers to these questions.”
In an interview during that time this was what some of those members of the Club of Rome had to say:
Profs. Meadows statements were:
“If you’re going to convince the governments of the world that taking your advice is the only way to avoid an otherwise certain disaster then playing out a series of possible scenarios by way of predictive modelling has truly become the only way to go”.
“It is important for you I think to realise that you have really the right to only have two children to expect that you are going to have to make short-term sacrifices”.
“We are talking about a system in which the various balances between material and product population can be engineered to suite the particular objectives of a society”.
Alexander King another co-founder stated: “The most important lesson is that we are nearly in the end of the development of society which has been going on for about 2000 years. And we’ve reached levels of prosperity which carry the seed of disruption” and “It is important that everyone should have a concept of the world as a whole and should avoid as far as possible bringing up their children in any sense of local patriotism nationalism and bureaucratism.”
Maurice Strong (a Canadian oil tycoon Secretary General of the Environment UN) had stated: “Re-orient our activities and our attitude on a global scale I think that this is possible and the biggest single task that mankind has ever faced.”
Profs. Anthony Stafford Beer Founder Management Cybernetics had stated: “Now I contend that we have to have a revolution and we won’t be able to plan it”.
Later and recently Meadows was interviewed again and his statement was:
“In one way or another globally we are so far above the population and the consumption levels which can be supported by this plan that I know in one way or another is going to come back down. I hope to avoid that. I hope that it can occur in a special peaceful way. Peace doesn’t mean that everybody is happy but it means that conflict isn’t solved through violence through force but rather in other ways and so that’s what I hope for. The planet can support something like a billion people depending on how much material consumption does one want to have. To have more liberty and more consumption you have to have fewer people. And conversely if you have a very strong dictatorship which is smart unfortunately you never have smart dictatorship it’s always stupid; but if you had a smart dictatorship and a lower standard of living you can have that. But we want freedom and we want to have a high sense so we’re gonna have a billion people. So we’re now at 7. We have to go back down. I hope that this can be slow relatively slow and that can be done in a way which is relatively equal so that people share the experience and they don’t have a few rich trying to force everybody else to deal with it. These are my hopes pretty pessimistic hopes.”
In a nutshell he spoke openly about reducing the population to one billion and using epidemics as a possibility [the special peaceful way refers to having depopulation going on without the majority realising it because they are being distracted or because they don’t know that they don’t know].
In a nutshell their conclusion was that economic growth always generates a crisis and that the road to riches is the road to disaster. They found that if they control everything including industrial production no crisis emerged. But this would mean that we must stop getting richer.
And what is more important is that if one has a look at the archived document of the Club of Rome entitled “Planetary Emergency Plan – Securing a New Deal for People Nature and Climate” with a cover which reminds me of the smart cities one can see that the dates coincide with 2020 2022 which mark the start of Covid-19 and the crisis we are going through right now and then it mentions 2025 and 2030 which coincide with the target date that the governments are mentioning and Agenda 2030.
For example one of the 10 urgent actions for transformation mentioned is: “Set a global floor price on carbon (>30 USD/ton CO2 and rising) immediately for developed countries and no later than 2025 for the most advanced transition economies that internalises high-carbon energy externalities in all products and services.” This is similar to the Absolute Zero Carbon agenda that the governments are pushing and which will enslave humanity with the carbon footprint digital tracker.
They always tell you beforehand what they want to do.
