BERTRAND RUSSELL- The Impact Of Science On Society
Who was Bertrand Russell?
According to Wikipedia, Russell was a very nice upstanding man indeed, a “British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, socialist, pacifist and social critic,” no less.
In fact, Russell was descended from an old establishment family. He was a propagandist, whose job it was to propogate certain ideas in the service of the monied elites. He was instrumental in the project to wreck European and American culture through his chairmanship of the CIA sponsored Congresss for Cultural Freedom. Far from being a pacifist, he was a promoter of the policy of Mutually Assured Destruction and was the founder of the Pugwash movement which used the spectre of Cold War nuclear annihilation to push for world government. He was a racist and promoter of population reduction. He was a Fabian socialist, and a Multhusian ideologue, along with fellow Coefficients Club member and one world government promoter H.G. Wells. He was a significant figure in the agenda to bring about what is now known as the “New World Order.” He was, contrary to the Wikipedia portrayal, a thoroughly evil man.
Impact Of Science On Society
In 1952, Russell published a seminal work, The Impact Of Science On Society. As is typical of Russell, the writing style is dull, at least in the beginning. The beginning of the book seems reasonable and humanitarian, and is intended to soften the reader up for the disgusting conclusions which are presented as desireable or inevitable.
So without further ado, I will present the following quotes from the book, and leave it to you, the reader, to decide how much of the conspiracy is already in place.
I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology … Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called ‘education.’ Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part … It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment.
The subject will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship … The social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at. First, that the influence of home is obstructive. Second, that not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten. Third, that verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective. Fourth, that the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark gray.
Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.
Scientific societies are as yet in their infancy … It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished … Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible
