Story 5 - Depopulation.
There were many women at the conference. Some stood out far above the rest, but rarely had anyone the same powerful effect on people that Tara of Ruggels had, of our tavern. The speeches were theoretical. Tara was real. Occasionally this pattern was broken by someone really outstanding. One of these few was a woman from India. She was the first speaker of that particular day. She opened the day with some bright new ideas and some new material that hadn't already been mulled over a thousand times before. I admired her for that. But her message was also powerfully terrifying, at least it became so for me. She was probably the most courageous young woman at the conference, to have tackled the kind of subject that even seasoned diplomats would have difficulty in addressing, provided they dared at all. The title of her address was, "The marriage of humanity."
She began by talking about China where in times long past the mothers of poor families would often drown their female babies at birth, since a woman would grow up to be a burden, rather than an asset to the family. "What right does such a mother have to assume that she owns her baby's life," the speaker from India protested.
Then she spoke about the role of women in India, who by the force of tradition became literally owned by their husbands, to the point that many women had been murdered if they didn't measure up. "Countless women lost their life in this manner, in India," she added, "and some of that is still going on."
Next, she spoke about the divine right of kings, as kings claim to own their subjects to do with them according to their pleasure. She called it the ancient myth that is still enthroned. "Except, today's royalty," she said, "which still hides behind this ancient myth, presides over an empire that virtually covers the whole earth. Just listen to what these self-assumed owners of humanity have in store for us!" she said with a stern expression. "Their governance over the world calls for depopulation, and that targets you, me, and potentially everyone else in the world. Their target is to recreate the 'golden' age in which their feudal power had once stood supreme over all."
She said at this point that the major part of her address is focused on depopulation, because it is the modern outcome of the presumed ownership of people by the self-appointed rulers of the world. She said that the "divine right of the Kings" mythology is really not dead by any means. She said that the modern royalty, and would be royalty, knows very well that their feudal empire cannot exist within the framework of an advanced civilization, because intelligent people won't allow themselves to be looted. For this reason the whole world has become artificially hyped up about the supposed need for population reduction policies. The hype is put forward in the name of creating prosperity, while the real goal is creating poverty for the purpose of increasing the death-rate, for the purpose of rolling back industrialization and civilization itself, to a state of existence that existed during the dark ages, their golden age of feudalism.
Our lady from India spoke about Thomas Malthus next, an employee of the British East India Company, who became famous as the philosophical author of the British Poor Laws that laid the foundation for the infamous work houses of the 1800s where the poor of society, mostly the children, were worked to death, just like they are in our modern age in the free-trade slave-wage industries of the world. The good parson, Thomas Malthus, had even proclaimed that the general population should live in such grossly unsanitary conditions that they become sick and die at an early age.
Our speaker told us that Thomas Malthus had actually plagiarized a Venetian monk for his population theories, including the notion that the human population poses a problem to itself. The Venetian monk had published a book on the subject for his imperial masters some time earlier. The woman from India also said that the Venetian monk's book was based on a carefully crafted fundamental error, which she suggested, may have been made intentionally. "Except Malthus didn't know this," she told us. "Thus, he stole the Venetian Empire's lie and was celebrated as a genius for his 'discovery.'" She laughed at this point.
