I hadn’t heard of the Flexner Report of 1910 until as late as 2015(ish) and it wasn’t held in high regard by the few who brought it to my attention. Among those unfamiliar with this document (myself included until researching for this post), the most common response to its criticism is the automatic, yet baseless, assumption that things have likely changed since its publication. I researched online to avoid having to track down a stack of library books with only incidental references… Countless sources praised the report, declaring it underappreciated. In fact, its anniversary was highly celebrated back in 2010. And yet, no one directly quoted it. The only way to form my own opinion was to read a photocopy of Flexner’s original report, which I found in the United States’ National Archives. What I found left me absolutely stunned.
When considering the ramifications– since many of America’s hospitals were closed then the rest consolidated based on the report’s recommendation– there’s a key determining factor that cannot be ignored. Whenever I mention “eugenics,” most people either give me a blank stare or their eyes glaze over. Yet, even those familiar with the ideology are unaware of its ties to other seemingly unrelated philosophies that impact modern medicine by hijacking the fields of Science and Technology. Does that seem far-fetched?
In the late 1800s, the same year the first integrated iron and steel mill west of St. Louis, Colorado Fuel & Iron Co. was built (and mostly owned and controlled) by John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie founded Carnegie Steel Co., which became the largest manufacturer of pig iron, steel rails, and coal derivative, “coke” in the world. Just a couple of years later, Henry Ford became an engineer with the Edison Illuminating Company of Detroit while Albert Einstein was introduced to Critique of Pure Reason by German philosopher, Immanuel Kant (influential during the Age of Enlightenment, best known for his doctrine of transcendental idealism).
Soon, Standard Oil Co. (by then the world’s largest refiner) was founded by Henry Flagler (the “father” of Miami and Palm Beach, Florida) and John D. Rockefeller, who was chairman and the major shareholder. Andrew Carnegie became the secretary/ telegraph operator for Pennsylvania Railroad Co. where he was promoted to superintendent of its Western division. There his bosses taught him insider trading; quid pro quo deals built Carnegie’s fortune. Meanwhile, the US Supreme Court ruled that a slave didn’t become free when transported into a free state, slavery in a territory couldn’t be banned by Congress and blacks weren’t eligible for US citizenship.
By the early 1900s, Carnegie Steel Company was sold to the United States Steel Corporation, which had recently been formed by John Piermont (“JP”) Morgan, who was the first in the world to have over a billion dollars in market capitalization. A few years later, the Carnegie Institution formed in Washington, D.C. with a sizable gift from Andrew Carnegie. Then, John D. Rockefeller donated money to incorporate the General Education Board. After a series of acquisitions and mergers (including Federal Steel Co. with Carnegie Steel Co.), JP Morgan & Co. became one of the most powerful banking houses in the world.
After teaching at a private school he founded, Abraham Flexner’s 1908 book critiquing the American college model caught the attention of the president of the Carnegie Foundation. When the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching issued Flexner’s publication of a report on professional medical schools, Flexner was thrust into the midst of a global empire. Then, in 1914 he wrote Prostitution in Europe. An excerpt:
The Bureau of Social Hygiene was created as a result of the work of the Special Grand Jury which investigated the white slave traffic in New York City in 1910. It was organized only after a thorough inquiry had been made, involving conferences with over a hundred leading men and women in the city as to the relative value of a public commission as compared with a private organization. The opinion prevailed that a permanent, unofficial organization, whose efforts would be continuous, would probably be more lasting and effective; the Bureau of Social Hygiene was therefore established in the winter of 1911. Its present members are Miss Katharine Bement Davis, Superintendent of the New York State Reformatory for Women, at Bedford Hills, New York [and future member of the Committee on Eugenics of the United States’ Advisory Council]; Paul M. Warburg, [German-American investment banker, director of Wells Fargo & Company who resigned following his appointment to the Federal Reserve Board] of the firm of Kuhn, Loeb & Company; Starr J. Murphy, of the New York Bar; and John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
By 1930, Flexner was founding director of the Institute for Advanced Study, which boasts Albert Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer (“father of the Atomic Bomb”) as past faculty. Via his essay “The Usefulness of Useless Knowledge” published in 1939 in Harper’s Magazine, Flexner presented his case for self-directed “theoretic” or seemingly useless research, citing, among other examples, the abstract mathematics of non-Euclidean geometry. This idea heavily influenced Einstein’s theory of relativity (which IAS claims it would not have have been possible without it).
All these moguls, each a powerhouse in their own right, were shaped by schools of thought that gradually snowballed towards elitist Globalism. At the core is Humanism (which has lately been promoted by Roman Catholic, Pope Francis)– an approach to Science that originated in northern Italy during the 13th and 14th centuries and later spread across Europe. The term “humanismus” was coined by 19th-century German educators to designate the Renaissance emphasis on classical studies. The roots of this perspective are of Greek origin, based on Roman statesman, Marcus Tullius Cicero’s concept of “humanitas” as an educational ideal based upon the development of human virtue, in all its forms, to its fullest extent. This was theorized to result in a balance of action and contemplation, the political application of which was believed to be Utopia.
Correspondingly, prevailing traditional principles (i.e. “medieval” Christian that emphasized supernatural characteristics acquired through submission to God) were considered archaic and thus necessitated a return to classic literature and philosophy. Subsequently, Intellectualism emerged to celebrate Human capability. Through poetry in particular, eloquence in public discourse became the ultimate test of whether someone had achieved superiority; their social decorum along with their level/ quality of education were demonstrated by their ability to be articulate and persuasive, which was seen to be proof of a sound mind and body.
Modern Humanism as outlined in Humanist Manifesto written by Paul Kurtz (III is said to supercede prior iterations; I was co-authored by Edwin H. Wilson) affirms the following tenets, which are said to reflect consensus rather than dogma:
- Knowledge of the world is derived by observation, experimentation, and rational analysis.
- Humans are an integral part of nature, the result of unguided evolutionary change.
- Ethical values are derived from human need and interest as tested by experience.
- Life’s fulfillment emerges from individual participation in the service of humane ideals.
- Humans are social by nature and find meaning in relationships.
- Working to benefit society maximizes individual happiness.
There’s nothing particularly alarming about it but it’s unclear who determines whether one’s mind is truly rational. If truth is continually evolving, how it can be determined whether “knowledge” is in fact reality, which is so heavily prized, or merely collective preference? After all, a non-hypothetical example of human consensus is Adolph Hitler’s Nazi regime. He proposed a combination of selective breeding and population control out of a supposed human need (certainly collective interest), which he managed to convince everyone would benefit society and thus maximize individual happiness. Granted, Humanism doesn’t necessarily lead to genocide. But it does nothing to contradict it, either. As Hitler said, “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
That’s not to say every modern German citizen is accountable for the atrocities of the Jewish Holocaust. However, to surmise that such large and powerful application of Humanism— assuming the genetic supremacy worldview spontaneously sprang up overnight– could simply vanish, that all the Nazis shrugged, abandoned their deep-seated ideals and returned to the way everything was before the war is ludicrous. Even innovative American inventor, Henry Ford promoted an antisemitic outlook via The International Jew published by the Dearborn Publishing Company and The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which he circulated through his newspaper, The Dearborn Independent.
This brings us to Eugenics, a term coined by British scientist/ explorer, Francis Galton in 1883. Influenced by Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection that emphasized “survival of the fittest,” Galton become interested in designing a method of human selection, in which to provide “the more suitable races or strains of blood a better chance of prevailing speedily over the less suitable.” By World War I, many prominent decision-makers and popular cultural influencers (including aforementioned Katharine Bement Davis– head worker at a settlement house in Pennsylvania to Americanize poor/ uneducated immigrants where she worked with W.E.B. Du Bois, who was conducting research on urban Blacks; Superintendent of the New York State Reformatory for Women in New York; head of the Correction Commission; member of the Committee on Eugenics of the United States’ Advisory Council) subscribed to the theory of hereditary superiority and selective breeding. In the 1920s alone, over 60,000 American citizens were successfully sterilized.
In 1926, the American Eugenics Society was founded “to coordinate the efforts of the smaller, local eugenics groups… The organization championed racial betterment, eugenic health, and genetic education through lectures and exhibits. A popular promotion of the Society was the Fitter Family contest, held at state fairs across the United States. These contests often required submission of a family’s eugenic history, a medical examination, and an intelligence test.”
Ironically, Unitarianism folds neatly into such Supremacy framework. Often touted as Universalism, it seeks to reduce all events and information to an intellectual analysis. In this way, emotion and opinion are supposedly weeded out and thus all worldviews can be assimilated them into a collective point of view approved by the morally superior. Any non-conformist is considered “intolerant” or phobic. Modern Unitarianism emerged from a series of schisms within Christianity when dissenters promoted the use of reason to interpret Scripture and eventually accepted experience as its complement. After a string of Parliamentary laws in Europe followed by the establishment of various organizations in the United States, Transcendentalism eventually divided the Unitarians. Ultimately, the composition of the “Humanist Manifesto” in 1933 would separate Unitarianism’s theistic component and thus distinguish its ideology from it as a religion.
In light of these trends and the conglomerates who fund(ed) them, the study of Genetics (see my Genetics primer for social discourse) should be regarded as more than scientific curiosity about the nature of hereditary traits; selective breeding necessitates at least the identification– if not the eradication of– deformation, disease and genetic mutation, unless such mutations are deemed beneficial to the future ideal race to become the pinnacle of Humanity. In case there’s any doubt about the intentions of early geneticists, after 3 International Eugenics Congresses– 1911 was presided over by Charles Darwin’s son, Major Leonard Darwin; 1922 was presided over by Henry Fairfield Osborn with Alexander Graham Bell as its honorary president; 1932 was presided over by Charles Davenport (Director of the Eugenics Record Office), who composed the “Eugenics Creed”:
- I believe in striving to raise the human race to the highest plane of social organization, of cooperative work and of effective endeavor.
- I believe that I am the trustee of the germ plasm that I carry; that this has been passed on to me through thousands of generations before me; and that I betray the trust if (that germ plasm being good) I so act as to jeopardize it, with its excellent possibilities, or, from motives of personal convenience, to unduly limit offspring.
- I believe that, having made our choice in marriage carefully, we, the married pair, should seek to have 4 to 6 children in order that our carefully selected germ plasm shall be reproduced in adequate degree and that this preferred stock shall not be swamped by that less carefully selected.
- I believe in such a selection of immigrants as shall not tend to adulterate our national germ plasm with socially unfit traits.
- I believe in repressing my instincts when to follow them would injure the next generation.
In 1980, the “father of secular humanism,” Paul Kurtz founded the Council for Secular Humanism. A Secular Humanist Declaration has as its main points, which– though they seem to be even more dogmatic than Davenport’s eugenics-based values– are effortlessly compatible:
- Free Inquiry
- Separation of Church and State
- The Ideal of Freedom
- Ethics Based on Critical Intelligence
- Moral Education
- Religious Skepticism
- Science and Technology
Incidentally, the American Humanist Association lists among famous humanists: Isaac Asimov— professor of biochemistry and science fiction author; Kurt Vonnegut— author most famous for Slaughterhouse-Five, who happened to study mechanical engineering at Carnegie Institute of Technology, which is now Carnegie Mellon University; Richard Dawkins— ethologist, evolutionary biologist and author, most famous for The God Delusion; Steve Wozniak— electronics engineer, programmer and co-founder of Apple, Inc.; Carl Sagan— astronomer, planetary scientist, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, and science popularizer/ communicator; John Dewey— philosopher, psychologist, founder of the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools; Gloria Steinem— columnist for New York magazine and a co-founder of Ms. magazine, social political activist, leader/ spokeswoman for the American feminist movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s, co-founder of the Women’s Media Center with actress/ activist, Jane Fonda and poet, radical feminist, political theorist and activist, journalist, lecturer, and former child actor, Robin Morgan; Jack Kevorkian— pathologist best known as “Dr. Death” for being a public supporter of terminal medical patients’ voluntary euthanasia by physician-assisted suicide; Oliver Stone— film director, producer, and screenwriter best known for Platoon, JFK, Nixon, W. and Snowden; Gene Roddenberry— former LAPD officer, who became a TV screenwriter, producer and creator of the original Star Trek series and its first spin-off The Next Generation; Katharine Hepburn— actress, record-holder for Academy Awards for Lead Acting Performances, named by the American Film Institute the greatest female star of Classic Hollywood Cinema.
Among the signatories of The Humanist Manifesto were/ are John Dewey; Julian Huxley— evolutionary biologist, former secretary of the Zoological Society of London, the 1st Director of UNESCO, a founding member of the World Wildlife Fund and 1st president of the British Humanist Association; Isaac Asimov; Betty Friedan— feminist and author of The Feminine Mystique; Alan F.

Skinner— psychologist, behaviorist, author, inventor, social philosopher and past professor of Psychology at Harvard University.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of the first birth control clinic in the US (from which emerged Planned Parenthood) is championed as a hero in the development of women’s healthcare. It’s significant that she was a eugenicist, who was vehemently opposed to allowing anyone of less than ideal breeding to procreate, her motivation behind expanding access to birth control around the world. Her numerous books provide a window into her perspective as she explained her standards for ideal Humanity and outlined how she planned to convince people to control their own birth rate, especially the poor, mentally ill and non-European races.
An excerpt from Margaret Sanger; an Autobiography by Margaret Sanger (1938):
…The eugenists were given their opportunity to speak at the Conference. Eugenics, which had started long before my time, had once been defined as including free love and prevention of conception. Moses Harman of Chicago, one of its chief early adherents, had run a magazine and gone to jail for it under the Comstock regime. Recently it had cropped up again in the form of selective breeding, and biologists and geneticists such as Clarence C. Little, President of the University of Maine, and C. B. Davenport, Director of the Cold Spring Harbor Station for Experimental Evolution, had popularized their findings under this heading. Protoplasm was the substance then supposed to carry on hereditary traits—genes and chromosomes were a later discovery. Professor Davenport used to lift his eyes reverently and, with his hand upraised as though in supplication, quiver emotionally as he breathed, “Protoplasm. We want more protoplasm.”
I accepted one branch of his philosophy, but eugenics without birth control seemed to me a house built upon sands. It could not stand against the furious winds of economic pressure which had buffeted into partial or total helplessness a tremendous proportion of the human race. The eugenists wanted to shift the birth control emphasis from less children for the poor to more children for the rich. We went back of that and sought first to stop the multiplication of the unfit. This appeared the most important and greatest step towards race betterment…
This begs the question of whether there’s any connection between modern eugenics and the Georgia Guidestones, a Stonehenge-style (i.e. astronomically aligned) monument erected in Elbert County, Georgia (USA) in 1980. The granite tablets display a set of anonymously authored guidelines in several languages like a Rosetta Stone:
- Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
- Guide reproduction wisely—improving fitness and diversity.
- Unite humanity with a living new language.
- Rule passion—faith—tradition—and all things with tempered reason.
- Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
- Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
- Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
- Balance personal rights with social duties.
- Prize truth—beauty— love—seeking harmony with the infinite.
- Be not a cancer on the earth—Leave room for nature—Leave room for nature.
Regardless, notable members of the American Eugenics Society included Henry Ford, Dr. Clarence Gamble (co-founder of health and beauty manufacturer, “Procter & Gamble”), Professor William Gates (past Planned Parenthood board member and father of Microsoft co-founder and vaccine advocate, Bill Gates), John D. Rockefeller, John D. Rockefeller Jr., Margaret Sanger and JP Morgan.
Now knowing all of this, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that aptly-named Planned Parenthood* has an award in honor of the pioneer of modern population control. “Our highest honor, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Margaret Sanger Award, is presented annually to recognize leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement.” To give credit where it’s due, let’s consider this award in the context of namesake, Sanger’s Woman and the New Race:
To understand the difficulties and the obstacles to be overcome before the dream of a greater race in America can be attained, is to understand something of the task before the women who shall give birth to that race… What is the effect of the “melting pot” upon the foreigner, once he beings to “melt”? Are we now producing a freer, juster, more intelligent, more idealistic, creative people out of the varied ingredients here?
If we are to develop in America a new race with a racial soul, we must keep the birth rate within the scope of our ability to understand as well as to educate. We must not encourage reproduction beyond our capacity to assimilate our numbers so as to make the coming generation into such physically fit, mentally capable, socially alert individuals as are the ideal of a democracy. The intelligence of a people is of slow evolutional development—it lags far behind the reproductive ability. It is far too slow to cope with conditions created by an increasing population, unless that increase is carefully regulated.
We must, therefore, not permit an increase in population that we are not prepared to care for to the best advantage—that we are not prepared to do justice to, educationally and economically. We must popularize birth control thinking…
Motherhood, when free to choose the father, free to choose the time and the number of children who shall result from the union, automatically works in wonderous ways. It refuses to bring forth weaklings; refuses to bring forth slaves; refuses to bear children who must live under the conditions described. It withholds the unfit, brings forth the fit; brings few children into homes where there is not sufficient to provide for them. Instinctively it avoids all those things which multiply racial handicaps. Under such circumstances we can hope that the “melting pot” will refine. We shall see that it will save the precious metals of racial culture, fused into an amalgam of physical perfection, mental strength and spiritual progress. Such an American race, containing all the best of racial elements, could give to the world a vision and a leadership beyond our present imagination.
Recipients of the Margaret Sanger Award include Nancy Pelosi (US Speaker of the House and a former US congresswoman, who was instrumental in the passage of the Affordable Care Act), Hillary Rodham Clinton (US Secretary of State and former US senator), Ted Turner (founder of Turner Broadcasting System and The Forum for Women, Law and Development), Jane Fonda (multiple Oscar and Emmy-winning actress and social/ political activist), Kathleen Turner (multiple Oscar-winning actress), The Reverend Howard Moody (past senior minister of Judson Memorial Church and organizer of the Clergy Consultation Service on Abortion), Ann Landers (advice columnist) and her sister, Abigail Van Buren (“Dear Abby” advice columnist), Phil Donahue (host of the 9 time Emmy-winning TV talk show, “The Phil Donahue Show” and recipient of the Christopher Reeve First Amendment Award), Katharine Hepburn (Oscar-winning actress, whose mother helped establish the birth control movement), John D. Rockefeller III (helped organize the first government-sponsored conference on population and founder of The Population Council) and The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. (early US Civil Rights activist).
Hitler’s Nazi empire may seem like a distant memory and Neo-Nazism tends to be tightly concentrated in certain areas with a smattering of outlying sympathizers. Yet, the underlying goal of genetic supremacy/ selection continues to re-brand itself in order to infiltrate every segment of Society. This was made considerably easier by the US government’s (recently declassified) Operation Paperclip, which immigrated and assimilated 1,600 Nazi scientists into the US after WWII, many of whom worked for NASA. It would be impossible to fully know the ramifications of this, other than to track the ties that bind, and observe people’s actions, which say far more than even the most eloquent words ever could. (Subsequent alterations to highly revered educational institutions resulted from said ramifications will be covered in follow-ups to this post.)
Over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered ‘global intelligence’ company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal’s Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor’s web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.
These provide additional insight into Project Mockingbird, the infiltration of every sector of Society– journalism, mass media (TV, radio), education, the entertainment industry (film), religious clergy, etc.– by the US’ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). What was once thought to be the safeguarding of classified information, such as military strategy has come to light as a calculated disinformation campaign, rife with propaganda furthering the aforementioned globalist, elitist, eugenicist agenda via a comfortable and reasonable sounding narrative. I won’t elaborate on it here; I felt it’s worth noting. But as Adolf Hitler said in Mein Kampf,
Only the Jew knew that by an able and persistent use of propaganda heaven itself can be presented to the people as if it were hell and, vice versa, the most miserable kind of life can be presented as if it were paradise. The Jew knew this and acted accordingly. But the German, or rather his Government, did not have the slightest suspicion of it. During the War the heaviest of penalties had to be paid for that ignorance.
