(Truthstream Media) You could say the idea of the so-called “Population Bomb” may have actually exploded in 1974.
That was the year of the first World Population Conference in Bucharest. Effects of the 1973 oil crisis were being felt hard, with the price of oil quadrupled from $3 to nearly $12 a barrel. Oh, and speaking of war criminal Henry Kissinger, ’74 was also the year of his infamous National Security Study Memorandum 200, which listed the “population problem” of unchecked growth in “LDCs” (less developed countries) as a potential risk to U.S. national security.
The document is dated April 24, 1974.
Concentration on this “problem” of how to reduce the population was planned for 13 key countries, including India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Colombia. Of those, the document singled out Mexico as having one of the highest (and therefore, most worrisome) growth rates of all. The document read, “Perhaps the most significant population trend from the viewpoint of the United States is the prospect that Mexico’s population will increase from 50 million in 1970 to over 130 million by the year 2000.”
