Aldous Huxley & Planned Parenthood

Here’s a quote from the book I’m reading. This piece, from Aldous Huxley’s, Island, seems relevant now, almost 45 years after it was written:

Armaments, universal debt and planned obsolescence — those are the three pillars of Western prosperity. If war, waste and moneylenders were abolished, you’d collapse. And while you people are overconsuming the rest of the world sinks more and more deeply into chronic disaster. Ignorance, militarism and breeding, these three — and the greatest of these is breeding. No hope, not the slightest possibility, of solving the economic problem until that’s under control.

The quote is in reference to the Utopian society, Pala, a place where there is no over-consumption of goods, where militarism and ignorance do not exist, and where family planning is learned at an early age.

Fast-forward to present day and it’s clear that the Bushite has promoted ignorance, militarism, and breeding.  Didn’t he cut monies to Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the like in order to fight his dirty war?

And now, PMS is following in those footsteps. What’s the chance of Planned Parenthood / Canadian Federation for Sexual Health being able to access Status of Women Canada funding?  They clearly violate the new funding guidelines because they lobby for education around sexual health at the local, provincial, and federal levels.

One thought on “Aldous Huxley & Planned Parenthood

  1. From your link to Planned Parenthood and Canadian Fed for Sexual Health, the financial report indicates that funding comes from **more than one** department of the Federal Government.

    Those groups are also funded by CIDA and the Public Health Agency of Canada. Are there more that we should know about?

    Is it possible that even more departments include them in their budgets?
