Overlord Ted Turner calls for global one-child policy like China’s
Turner’s UN Foundation has Given $1 Billion to UN Projects
by Patrick B. Craine
CANCUN, Mexico, December 6, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Media billionaire Ted Turner called on world leaders Sunday to institute an international one-child policy akin to that being enforced in China.
The CNN founder said that under this scheme the world’s poor could sell their fertility rights and thereby profit from avoiding procreation, reports the Globe and Mail.
Radical solutions are needed, he said, because of the environmental crisis facing the planet. “If we’re going to be here [as a species] 5,000 years from now, we’re not going to do it with seven billion people,” he explained.
China’s coercive approach to implementing their policy includes forced abortion, imprisonment, and fines many times greater than a family’s annual income. The policy has faced strong criticism from human rights organizations, such as the pro-abortion Amnesty International.
Turner, however, who is renowned in pro-life circles for using his massive wealth to promote abortion and population control, raised eyebrows last year when he claimed that China does not use “draconian steps” in enforcing the policy.
When the interviewer pointed out that in enforcing the policy China has “done more than encourage on several occasions,” the media mogul admitted he was “not intimately familiar with everything.” He nevertheless did not retract the comments.
Turner was a featured speaker this past weekend at the World Climate Summit in Cancun, a conference for business leaders staged during the UN’s Climate Change Conference in the same city to ‘accelerate solutions to climate change.’
He made the comments during a luncheon on Sunday where economist Brian O’Neill of the U.S.’s National Center for Atmospheric Research presented his new study on the impact of demographic trends on greenhouse gas emissions.
O’Neill argued that promoting access to “family planning” could be a major boon to those seeking to reduce greenhouse emissions. O’Neill, however, advocated voluntary approaches.
Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, said today that instead of China’s coercive brand of population control, Turner instead “wants to pursue a less populated world by bribing women into giving up their fertility.”
“There is ... something despicable about offering a poor, hungry woman food, money, or clothing in exchange for her surrendering her fertility,” said Mosher, who has studied China’s one-child policy for over three decades.
Yet while Turner has not advocated coercion, Mosher explained that the population policy he is promoting will inevitably lead that way. Population control programs are all voluntary “until someone refuses to submit to the knife, at which time the pretense of ‘voluntarism’ is abandoned, threats start being made, and forced sterilizations follow,” he said.

--->Was Ted Turner behind the mad Georgia Guidestones?
They sold their souls to the Shining One and were paid through time in season. What made the deal so delicious and bright? They saw the Liar as the light, their reason.
A "Novus Ordo Seclorum" did not begin in 1913 or 1947 or any other other recent dates suggested by the gullible. It was openly declared in full view (in seed, gradation) between 1776 and 1789 in the name of a new and mischievous understanding of "liberty". We've lived with the consequences ever since. How far along we are in the Endgame is uncertain because "a day with the Lord is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day"---2 Pet 3:8
The cosmic battle is between good an evil, not merely between mere factions, political or otherwise.

For the Church to Oppose Abortion, Contraception & Depopulation Is to Oppose the Whole Tissue of the Proposed So-Called New World Order; It Is To Stand with the Poor and Vulnerable of This World
Cardinal Ratzinger (Today Benedict XVI) Severely Criticizes U.N.'S Proposal for New World Order
Poverty Cannot Be Combated by Eliminating Poor
Rome, Sept 18, 2000 (LSN.ca) & Rome, SEPT. 15, 2000 (ZENIT.org),- The so-called U.N. Millennium Summit, the largest gathering of heads of State and government in history, held in New York from September 6-8, reflected on the role this international organization should play and the reforms that must be made to fulfil its mission of peace and defense of human rights.
Now, the voice of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, is raised in reflection on the United Nations' role in this new millennium.
Following the failure of Marxism and the obvious limitations of the liberal model, the "New World Order" emerges, increasingly referred to by the U.N. and international conferences, Cardinal Ratzinger points out in today's issue of the Italian newspaper "Avvenire."
Meetings, such as the one on Population held in Cairo in 1994, and on Woman in Beijing in 1995, have clearly revealed "a real and proper philosophy of the new man and new world," the cardinal explained.
Reduce the Guests at the Common Table
"A philosophy of this kind no longer has the utopian burden that characterized the Marxist dream," he clarified. "On the contrary, it is very realistic, in as much as it sets limits to the means available for reaching it and recommends, for example, without by so doing attempting to justify itself, not being concerned with the care of those who are no longer productive or who can no longer hope for a determined quality of life."
This philosophy, the Cardinal says, "no longer hopes that men, used to wealth and well-being, will be disposed to make the necessary sacrifices to attain a general welfare, but rather proposes strategies to reduce the number of guests at the table of humanity, so that the presumed happiness they have attained will not be affected."
Woman Against Woman "The peculiarity of this new anthropology, which should be at the base of the New World Order, is evident especially in the image of woman, in the ideology of "Women's Empowerment," born from the Beijing Conference. The objective of this ideology is woman's fulfilment. However, the principal obstacles to her fulfilment are the family and maternity," the cardinal revealed.
"Because of this," the Bavarian cardinal said, reflecting on the positions of U.N. agencies, "Woman must be liberated especially of what characterizes her, namely, her feminine specificity. This must be annulled before a 'Gender equity' and 'equality,' before an indistinct and uniform human being, in whose life sexuality has no other meaning than a voluptuous drug, that can be used without any criteria."
Eclipse of "Philosophy of Love" "In the fear of maternity that has taken hold of a great part of our contemporaries, there is at stake something that is even more profound: in the end, the other is always an antagonist who deprives us of a part of life, a threat to our self and our free development," Cardinal Ratzinger clarified.
"Duty to Protest"
"Today there is no longer a 'philosophy of love,' but only a 'philosophy of selfishness.' It is precisely here that people are deceived. In fact, at the moment they are advised not to love, they are advised, in the final analysis, not to be human. For this reason, at this stage of the development of the new image of the new world, Christians -- and not just them but in any case even more than others -- have the duty to protest," the Cardinal concluded. --30--
Note: This does not mean opposing all international organizations in principle, but it does mean not approving them against a culture of life as the UN presently does. There is much confusion and naivety in the world and Church and other denominations today (false promises have been bandied) about these matters. It is then time to become more, not less, alert.

The Church as always diplomatically seeks to make alliances where it is possible, however she knows very well it is not always possible. This is why the the "centers" of world power have been hostile to the Catholic Church for so long:
Church and Benedict XVI confronting heart of secular world, archbishop states
--->Christianity Out in the Cold: "It [EU] is, however, the book explains, influenced by a strongly secularist orientation that is hostile to the established churches, especially the Catholic Church."
"Love thy neighbor as thyself": The Church's opposition to abortion, contraception, modern sexual anarchy and depopulation (to say nothing of IT's wars!) certainly also precludes any "one world religion," though not cooperation with other religions and denominations where possible. In fact it would appear the World Council of Churches and great numbers of "liberal" Protestants are at the head of syncretistic efforts, far beyond mere alliance where possible for the common good.
Revisited: Pope John Paul II on Population Control and the Environment
ROME, August 22, 2002 (LSN.ca) - The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace published a new book, released yesterday, entitled, “From Stockholm to Johannesburg: An Historical Overview of the Concern of the Holy See for the Environment.” The book, which comes out just prior to the United Nations’ Aug. 26-Sept. 4 World Summit on Sustainable Development in South Africa highlights the position of the church on various issues including the controversial issue of population control.
Written by Sister Marjorie Keenan the book includes excerpts from 24 papal or Vatican documents concerning environmental issues. The current Pope has contributed largely to the discussion with numerous writings on the subject. John Paul II’s teachings on population control are also available from the Vatican website. In a 1994 message to the then director of the United Nations Population Fund the Pope summed up the stand of the church succinctly:
“In defence of the human person, the Church stands opposed to the imposition of limits on family size.” Moreover he slammed the organization for promoting population control with fear tactics. “All propaganda and misinformation directed at persuading couples that they must limit their family to one or two children should be steadfastly avoided, and couples that generously choose to have large families are to be supported,” he said.
The Pope echoed these statements in his encyclical Evangelium Vitae (the Gospel of Life), and in his apostolic exhortation Familiaris Consortio (The Family in the Modern World). In Evangelium Vitae the mild-mannered Pope issues a stinging criticism of population controllers comparing them to the evil Egyptian Pharaoh who attempted to cull the Hebrew population.
"The Pharaoh of old, haunted by the presence and increase of the children of Israel, submitted them to every kind of oppression and ordered that every male child born of the Hebrew women was to be killed (cf. Ex 1:7-22). Today not a few of the powerful of the earth act in the same way. They too are haunted by the current demographic growth, and fear that the most prolific and poorest peoples represent a threat for the well-being and peace of their own countries. Consequently, rather than wishing to face and solve these serious problems with respect for the dignity of individuals and families and for every person’s inviolable right to life, they prefer to promote and impose by whatever means a massive programme of birth control.
"Even the economic help which they would be ready to give is unjustly made conditional on the acceptance of an anti-birth policy,” he wrote. The Pope offers a simple solution to poverty which can be exacerbated by large populations: sharing. “Solutions must be sought on the global level by establishing a true economy of communion and sharing of goods, in both the national and international order”.
