Crypto-Eugenic Media Group: Population Control Brainwashing A “Smash Hit”
December 28, 2012
President of the Population Media Center, Bill Ryerson, recently bragged that its population control brainwashing campaign in developing nations has been “a smash hit.”
The Population Media Center is an American population group producing fictional programs for worldwide dissimination purposes. Its mission: to spread the message of population reduction through works of fiction. Ryerson, the Center’s president, also heads the Washington-based Population Institute. Both groups are active in the modern day “population movement”, striving for worldwide population reduction in the name of the earth.
During an interview with PeakProsperity’s Chris Martenson, Ryerson boasted that (radio) soap-opera’s are the most effective way to cull populations worldwide.
“One of the things that we do – and that is the primary thing we do – is to use a strategy of communications that has turned out, from everything we have been able to measure, to be the most cost-effective strategy for changing behavior with regard to family size and contraceptive use on a per-behavior change basis of any strategy we have found on the planet.”
Ryserson explains that fictional platforms have proven to be successful carriers of the crypto-eugenic message:
“(…) the use of long-running serialized dramas, melodramas like soap operas, in which characters gradually evolve from the middle of the road in that society into positive role models for daughter education, delaying marriage and childbearing until adulthood, spacing of children, limiting of family size, and various other health and social goals of each country.
And we have now done such programs in forty-five countries.”
Ryerson continues to brag about the Center’s propaganda campaigns, especially those in Nigeria:
“(…) a program we ran from 2007 to 2009 was listened to by 70% of the population at least weekly. It was a twice a week program. It was clearly a smash hit. And it was a smash hit because it was highly suspenseful and highly entertaining. But it had a storyline dealing with a couple deciding to use family planning, which is almost taboo in northern Nigeria because less than 10% of the people in that region use any modern method of contraception. We had eleven clinics have healthcare workers ask clients what had motivated them to come in for family planning, and 67% percent of them named the program as the motivation.”
“That”, Ryerson explained, “is the kind of thing that can dramatically change demographic trends globally. We need to greatly expand this type of work.”
The Center is heavily sponsored by the corporate and “philanthropic” elites. On its slick-looking website, the Center states “contributions from and partnerships with the following organizations have enabled us to do work which initiates improved health in people all around the world, while providing engaging entertainment!”. Their list counts many UN organizations among its “contributors” as well as USAID divisions operating in so-called “high-fertility nations”:
