This 1926 Eugenics Exhibits Sums Up What the Elite Think About You and Your Family

By Melissa Dykes

This is an exhibit about Eugenics, dated 1926.

1926exhibit(click to enlarge, take it all in for a sec, then continue reading…)

According to eugenics, “some people are born to be a burden on the rest”.

You see, the eugenics movement — which steadily gained popularity for the first nearly 40 years of the 20th century and is the direct reason for forced sterilization laws implemented across America — sought to “breed out” people the elite that ultimately funded and promoted it (the Carnegie Institute and the Rockefeller Foundation, etc.) determined were genetically defective “riff raff” by way of pseudoscience parading as science.

Victims of eugenics included minorities, the children of Caucasians who interbred with minorities, poor people, people with physical disabilities or who were considered “feeble-minded,” and really, the list goes on and on (the slope got more and more slippery over time). Eugenics only disappeared from public view when the PR disaster of World War II forced it to. It looked pretty bad after the Nazis began so heavily promoting it.

Aside from the Eugenics Record Office set up at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island, the movement would train and send case workers around the country to take family pedigrees and compile data used to argue who had good breeding or not and who deserved the right to reproduce or not. They set up exhibits at county fairs for “public education” on eugenic matters. They would even sponsor something called “Better Baby” and “Fitter Family” contests at these fairs to judge “human stock” the way other organizations attending county fairs judged other things like prize pigs and heirloom tomatoes.

The poster shown at the start of this article is from one such eugenics educational exhibit. It featured lights that flashed at specific intervals to demonstrate different “facts” about the babies being born in the U.S.

According to this sign, in 1920s America:

  • Every 15 seconds $100 of your money goes for the care of person with bad heredity such as the insane, feeble-minded, criminals and other defectives.
  • Every 48 seconds a person is born in the United States who will never grow up mentally beyond that stage of a normal 8 year old boy or girl.
  • Every 50 seconds a person is committed to jail in the United States. Very few normal persons ever go to jail.
  • Every 16 seconds a person is born in the United States.

And do you see what it says in the box on the far right?

1926exhibit-cutoutThis light flashes every 7½ minutes. Every 7½ minutes a high grade person is born in the United States who will have the ability to do creative work and be fit for leadership. About 4% of all Americans come within this class.

Just consider the gall of that statement for a moment.

These eugenicists — the elite of society who funded this movement — only considered “about 4%” of all Americans to be “high grade”.

And truly, those are the people the eugenicists wanted to breed more of while using twisted, fake science to justify getting rid of everyone else. As far as they were concerned, everyone else not in that 4% should either be sterilized or, at the very least, laws should be passed where they would be forced to apply to the government for permission first before procreating.

“About 4%.”

Again, eugenics didn’t end when it fell out of favor because of the Nazis during World War II; it was simply forced to go underground. It got renamed and buried in more benign scientific sounding areas, like genetics, human ecology, and bioethics. The Rockefeller Foundation and other elite family foundations quietly continued their quest for population control of the general “riff raff” through different means.

Today we still have population control, scaremongering overpopulation myths, and crypto-eugenics. We still have people like Bill Gates pushing his paralyzing polio vaccines in countries were polio is supposedly eradicated anyway and paralyzing African-only meningitis vaccines, while people like Richard Dawkins goes around saying all babies who test positive for potentially having Down’s Syndrome in the womb should be automatically aborted because it would be immoral for their mothers not to do so.

We’re continually bathed in the idea that we’re expendable. Modern society goes like this: we’re just slightly higher animals than other animals floating around on a rock in a vast, empty nothingness with no higher meaning or purpose to any of it. Oh, and there are too many of us, too. Pretty soon we’ll all be replaced by robots. The system has us divided and conquered, fighting with each other all the time over one thing or another while the evil eugenicist elites have positioned themselves at the top to continue raping and killing us through various industrial-complexes (military, prison, medical, agricultural, etc.)

Meanwhile, fighting with each other over silly things like manufactured politics or skin color, they have us running for the “cure” which doesn’t cure anything while we overlook the cause. It’s a rule-by-experts scientific dictatorship in a time when the government and rich psychopaths own, steer, and weaponize all the meaningful science to begin with. “The game is rigged,” as comedian George Carlin would say.

So why do we even keep playing it? It’s their box, their Matrix, not ours.

The reality is we have been dehumanized so much more by this point than we were during the days of open eugenics in the first half of the 20th century. The elite probably don’t even consider 4% of us “high grade” at this point.

“About 4%.” That one exhibit says it all.
