Why The Transhumanism Movement Loves Gardasil

Transhumanism as defined by Wikipedia: “Transhumanism, often abbreviated as H+ or h+, is an international intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.”It is a mission statement that echoes previous attempts at “improving the human race” through Eugenics.  You may remember the Nazi’s attempts at doing so through the use of their experimentation programs involving unsuspecting subjects like children, minority groups and the mentally and physically handicapped.  In Canada during the period between the first and second wars, two provinces enacted laws allowing sterilization of mentally ill patients:

“In Canada, the eugenics movement gained support early in the 20th century as prominent physicians drew a direct link between heredity and public health.[107]Eugenics was enforced by law in two Canadian provinces. In Alberta, the Sexual Sterilization Act was enacted in 1928, focusing the movement on the sterilization ofmentally deficient individuals, as determined by the Alberta Eugenics Board.[108] The campaign to enforce this action was backed by groups such as the United Farm Women’s Group, including key member Emily Murphy.[109]

Individuals were assessed using IQ tests like the Stanford-Binet. This posed a problem to new immigrants arriving in Canada, as many had not mastered the English language, and often their scores denoted them as having impaired intellectual functioning. As a result, many of those sterilized under the Sexual Sterilization Act were immigrants who were unfairly categorized.[110] The province of British Columbia enacted its own Sexual Sterilization Act in 1933. As in Alberta, the British Columbia Eugenics Board could recommend the sterilization of those it considered to be suffering from “mental disease or mental deficiency”.[111]

In the US:
“Charles Davenport Charles Davenport, a scientist from the United States, stands out as one of history’s leading eugenicists. He took eugenics from a scientific idea to a worldwide movement implemented in many countries.[54] Davenport obtained funding to establish the Biological Experiment Station at Cold Spring Harbor in 1904[55] and the Eugenics Records Office in 1910, which provided the scientific basis for later Eugenic policies such as enforced sterilization.[56] He became the first President of theInternational Federation of Eugenics Organizations (IFEO) in 1925, an organization he was instrumental in building.[57] While Davenport was located at Cold Spring Harbor and received money from the Carnegie Institute of Washington, the organization known as the Eugenics Record Office (ERO) started to become an embarrassment after the well-known debates between Davenport and Franz Boas. Instead, Davenport occupied the same office and the same address at Cold Spring Harbor, but his organization now became known as the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories, which currently retains the archives of the Eugenics Record Office.[58]However, Davenport’s racist views were not supported by all geneticists at Cold Spring Harbor, including H. J. MullerBentley Glass, and Esther Lederberg[59]

In 1932 Davenport welcomed Ernst Rüdin, a prominent Swiss eugenicist and race scientist, as his successor in the position of President of the IFEO.[60] Rüdin, director of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Institute for Psychiatry, located in Munich), a Kaiser Wilhelm Institute,[61] was a co-founder (with his brother-in-law Alfred Ploetz) of the German Society for the Racial Hygiene.[62] Other prominent figures in Eugenics who were associated with Davenport includedHarry Laughlin (United States), Havelock Ellis (United Kingdom), Irving Fischer (United States), Eugen Fischer (Germany), Madison Grant (United States), Lucien Howe (United States), and Margaret Sanger (United States, founder of Planned Parenthood).[63]

Although Sanger denounced the Nazi methods of euthanasia of the unfit, she remained a steadfast supporter of methods to eliminate “unintelligent breeding” and maintained the view that the white race was superior to all others.  Her activities included setting up clinics in predominantly black neighborhoods in order to distribute birth control to poor African Americans.  To be fair, Sanger did uphold the noble notion that parents, and not the school system, should be responsible for teaching boys and girls about sex.  She believed in the sanctity and naturalness of it and felt that the prevention of venereal diseases started with the frank discussions between a mother and her children in her book: “What every girl should know“(1920).

Sangers efforts brought forth other ideas, that to this day remain points of contention and lead humanity down the most slippery of slopes.  The question of what makes a superior human being is being explored at levels more complex and scientific than just birth control and abortion clinics.

Scientific manipulation of DNA in human beings is now made sexy, with websites like Transhumanmedicine.com which actively promotes the H+ ideology.  It’s definition (as seen above) hardly differs from the definition of Eugenics by Wikipedia: “Eugenics is currently defined as the “applied science or the bio-social movement which advocates the use of practices aimed at improving the genetic composition of a population“, usually referring to human populations.”

Science and medicine have now brought us to the precipice with the discovery of a field called “gene therapy” that could not be possible without knowing the full sequence of the human genome through the Human Genome Project.

Picture

“Gene therapy is the insertion, alteration, or removal of genes within an individual’s cells and biological tissues to treat disease. It is a technique for correcting defective genes that are responsible for disease development.[1] The most common form of gene therapy involves the insertion of functional genes into an unspecified genomic location in order to replace a mutated gene, but other forms involve directly correcting the mutation or modifying normal gene that enables a viral infection. Although the technology is still in its infancy, it has been used with some success.[2]” – WikipediaLifeboat Foundation lists Gene Therapy as #8 in it’s Top Ten Transhumanist Technologies.  The site lauds the use of this technology, but fails to warn of it’s potential hazzards to human beings.  The site is not the only one to promote such views.  Transhumanmedicine.com focuses mainly on the use of science and medicine to produce the superior human being.

So how does this relate to the Gardasil vaccine?

We now know that the HPV vaccine contains not only DNA, but also a potential mechanism for introducing that DNA into cells.  Websites like Transhumanmedicine.com, like the Gardasil insert itself, assert that the vaccine contains no DNA, and is therefore not capable of causing disease.   How will they respond now that the new evidence has come out.  I suspect that they will applaude the brilliancy of the NICR for their ability to tow the Transhuman Party Line.  It is likely they will also not speak out against the fact that the FDA approved the vaccine in 2007 based on the fact that it contained no DNA only to admit on Oct 21, 2011 that they knew all along it was contaminated.

To date, those who have been seeking to bypass the restrictions on Gene Therapy have met with resistance (Public Oversight is Necessary if Human Gene Therapy is to Progress – Liebert 2008).  However, if it has been snuck in through the back door, who, if anyone would be able to oppose it?
