Modern War, 1968

Excerpt from *”The Biological Time Bomb”, author Gordon Rattray Taylor, copyright 1968
[page 184]

“In current thinking, the best way to wage war is to wage it without your enemy even being aware that it is happening. If, for example, you can control the weather so as to ensure poor crops for your enemy and good ones for yourself, in the course of years you will gradually improve the position of your country relative to his. Then perhaps you could quietly introduce a few crop diseases –nothing dramatic which would lead to suspicion, just a slight rise here and there apparently from some natural cause. And why stop at plant or stock diseases? Some minor human epidemics might help. Even the common cold keeps people away from work. It might be ten years or more before it dawned on the health authorities that they were really being too unlucky with minor illnesses. Meanwhile you inflate your own statistics a little, to avoid odious comparisons. And, of course, this is merely the biological side. Industrial disputes, insurance losses, the draining away of brain-power, and a thousand other things will help to undermine the strength of a country. Even a narrow-minded regime, an obfuscating religion, can prevent a country’s progress. And who knows whether this is just a speculation? Perhaps there are nations consciously waging this kind of warfare now.”

..”Or perhaps actual gene warfare. If viruses can be used to carry new genetic material into cells, perhaps one could tamper with the genes of another nation without their ever realizing the fact. History would simply record, as it has so often in the past, that such-an-such a nation rose to power while certain other countries entered a decline.”

In 1968 the Club of Rome was created as a policy think-tank of international science and businessmen that counted heads of State among its supporting members. Two very influential publications define the objectives of the Club; “Limits To Growth” distributed in 1972 and “The First Global Revolution” in 1993. The Club came to define the “new enemy” in its ’93 report prepared by (co-founder) Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider,
[page 75]
In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill.
                                                    …The real enemy then is humanity itself

Excerpts from “The First Global Revolution” offered in context:

“1968 was the year of the Great Divide. It marked the zenith as well as the end of the long post-war period of rapid economic growth in the industrial countries. But it was also a year of social unrest with the eruption of student uprisings in many countries and other manifestations of alienation and counter-culture protest..”–“Limits To Growth was never intended as a prophecy, but rather as a warning..” 

“The topic of recent [late 80s] Club of Rome meetings has been the ‘Great Transition’: we are convinced that we are in the early stages of the formation of a new type of world society which will be as different from..the Industrial Revolution [was] from the society of the long agrarian period that preceded it.”

[page 29] “The New Plagues”…”that of crime, violence and coercion organized for monetary gain or political power..[like] the well-organized drug trade.”

[concerning the spiral of national debts enhanced by the WB/IMF lending programs of the 1970s, pp.57-58] “The cost of debt service each year is influenced by interest rates and the value of the dollar. This dangerously unstable situation..if unattended, may well undermine the future prospects of the world economy..
   On its own, the debtedness of the developing countries constitutes a serious and growing threat…New resources will also be needed on a substantial scale.
   Developing a viable approach to the debt and development problem will require a far more coherent linkage of policies and institutions concerned with financial management (IMF), with investment and development (the Word Bank), and trade (UNCTAD, CATP)…In spite of institutional reluctance, policy objectives and actions in such interlinked fields as finance, debt management, investment, development policy, human resource development, trade, and environment must be made more coherent.”

[page64] “In general, non-governmental activity has achieved a new order of importance..”
“The Asian Dragons, otherwise known as NICs (Newly Industrialized Countries..Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea) have achieved great prosperity which is based to a large extent on exploitation of the new technologies. There is a lesson here…”
   “(Some of the poorer countries are also showing the results of creative inititative –for example, the recent progress in Botswana and consistent development in Zimbabwe)”

“Through numerous multilateral or bilateral conferences, meetings and telephone calls, personal relationships are being established which enable a better understanding among the human beings behind the official masks.”

[page66] ..”the end of the ‘American Dream’ which lost its credibility with the painful Vietnam War,..Hispanic migration,..poverty within plenty, drugs, violence and AIDS, and the fact that the ‘melting pot’ no longer worked were..factors in its demise.”
   “The need for enemies seems to be a common historical factor. Some states have striven to overcome domestic failure and internal contradictions by blaming external enemies. The ploy of finding a scapegoat is as old as mankind itself –when things become too difficult at home, divert attention to adventure abroad. Bring the divided nation together to face an outside enemy, either a real one or else one invented for the purpose.”

..”the sudden absence of traditional adversaries has left governments and public opinion with a great void to fill. New enemies have to be identified, new strategies imagined and new weapons devised. The new enemies..threaten the whole human race, and their names are pollution, water shortage, famine, malnutrition, illiteracy and unemployment. However it appears as yet insufficient for bringing about world cohesion and solidarity for the fight. Also the failure of many ideologies has removed some of the necessary points of reference.”

[page71]..”f’reedom’ alone cannot reorganize a state, write a constitution, create a market  and establish economic growth, rebuild industry and agriculture, or build a new social structure…This is why the concept of human rights simply ‘initiates’ but cannot implement the process of democratization…The old democracies have functioned reasonably well over the last two hundred years, but they appear now to be in a phase of complacent stagnation”
..”It is hoped..that people will not reproduce slavish copies of existing models that are unable to meet contemporary needs. Democracy is not a panacea… It is unaware of its own limits”..

“In its present form, democracy is no longer well suited for use [in the] tasks ahead…”

“Winston Churchill was right when he quipped ‘Democracy is the worst of all systems, except for the rest’. “..we must be aware of its erosion, its fragility and its limitations…a democracy is particularly damaging at the international level. policing is required, delays on taking decisions can mortally affect the lives of thousands of people.”

[page73] “The problem then is to invent instruments of governance capable of coping with change…we also have to determine the characteristics of the capacity to govern. ‘Global Governance’ in our vocabulary does not imply a global ‘government’ but rather the institutions set up for cooperation, coordination and common action”..
[page74]..”large bureaucracies that spread their tentacles around the centers of power..slow down or paralyze both decision-making and implementation.”

..”a dynamic world needs an effective nervous system at the grassroots make the identification of every citizen with the common process of governance possible.
   In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill.
…The real enemy then, is humanity itself…thus sparing no region, no society.”..”[social] phenomena are setting the stage, on many different levels, for a new upsetting environment where deviant behavior is in general..perceived as being commonplace”..

[page77] “Parents and teachers, the point of reference in most societies, have not been prepared by their education to adjust to the new situation imposed upon them today. As the late sociologist Margaret Mead remarked, “Young people are the native population of the new world in which we adults are immigrants”. Some of us would even go along with her observation that “nowhere in the world do there exist adults who know what their children know…In the past, there were always some elders who knew more..than any child. Today there are no longer any.”

“Thanks to modern information technology, young people are being exposed rapidly to more and more tacts that give them reason to believe that their elders lack responsibility and are unaware of enormous dangers,..shocks that lead to the feeling of generalized disorder.”
..”Children watch television and learn about all aspects of human life. They learn to be persons with individual choices, inclinations and freedom. The conflict between inherited and acquired values is such that if a young person wants to think and act for himself, he must have lots of courage or he will break down. Not having been given the means to distinguish the fundamental meaning…the younger generation is rejecting traditions and values as a whole and sketching out new trends: today, adolescents are the ones who know about and contribute to the major transnational trends, and try to stand firm against the dangers. Their parents now have to seek their consent and negotiate their own former unquestioned authority.”
…”there is only one way out..[for parents to] truly listen to and learn from their children..”

[page79] “Signs of discord have gradually appeared in the global society, inducing fear and bringing young people together despite differences of class, culture and country.”
..”another aspect of this great transition is the felt need to go back to the ancient spiritual principles..or to find solace in cults and pseudo religions..”
..”the Western model of modernization, consumption, economic growth and social progress..has not kept its promise”

“The three worlds –the Industrialized one, the second one mainly constituted by the Communist countries..and the underdeveloped Third World– are no more.”

[page83]”Never in the course of history has humanity been faced with so many threats and dangers…man is sucked into a global cyclone of confusion, swirling with seemingly unrelated factors, the causes of which form an inextricable maze…”
..”mankind is overwhelmed by the range of the difficulties confronting it from all sides; overwhelmed –and the word is not too strong– because the traditional structures, governments and institutions can no longer manage the problems…To make things worse, the archaic and unsuitable structures are themselves in the midst of a true moral crisis. The disappearance of value systems,..traditions,..collapse of ideologies,..absence of a global vision,..practices of democracy — all contribute to the void confronting societies.”

“States with constitutional laws and rights violate international law whenever the matter is solely one of national interest…Religions often serve as an excuse for fraticidal strife…”

“What we observe today is a general malaise which strikes men with stupor, paralysis and unnamed fears…This is the formidable challenge..”
“A global challenge requires a global approach.”

[End of Part I; Part II of this report begins on page 85]

One might ask if the purpose of the Vietnam War was to wake the sleepy “Asian Dragons” and draw out the industrial might of the East. The multi-use objectives of the 60s, 1968 in particular, set American society (and elsewhere) into a fever of dissarray that hastened the Youth culture repudiation of tradition and values that would later ensnare them in mass-media subversion and drugs. In a continuation of the race riots, rechanneled and expanded, the 60s war protests offered the seeding of ‘hope and peace’ in the birth of the Ecology movement.

Two of Hollywood’s blockbusters that year: ‘2001, A Space Odyssey’ (remember the Embryonic Child?) and ‘Planet of the Apes’.. 


  1. I know what you mean and where you are coming from…
    Here in the town where I live we have the latest, greatest synchrotron.
    A good many countries just happen to be sending their scientists here to have a real close look, at what may or may not…be in their backyard.
    i am in the safest place in the world….in the middle of no-where.
    It is very easy to monitor who comes and goes around here and over the past few years the airport has been pretty busy.
    Not with tourists, hunters or fisherman but, researchers from all over the world with very good security details.
    Yes, I concur…..its about to get very interesting, indeed.

    • Hi Jackie,
      I looked up ‘synchrotron’ for an idea of current applications, which appears to be new “drug discovery and research”. Sychrotrons are high-energy replacements for the ‘cyclotrons’, particle accelerators that rearrange molecules among other things. Wikipedia states that the “Tevatron” near Chicago (Argonne Nat’l Lab?) was the largest until the Large Hadron Collider came online at CERN in Switzerland, and there’s an effort to go bigger with the International Linear Collider.
      what’s next I wonder?

    • By the way, living in the ‘middle-of-nowhere’ is a two-edged sword. Not to be alarming, check out the surveillance campaign underway from this article “Big Brother At Your Front Door: Recording GPS Coordinates” at , the article link is here A few months ago this occurred at my house as well –the woman with the camera/computer said she was an insurance representative. She caught me at an odd moment as I was leaving the property, and I did not stick around to see her perform although she did say she would scan the entire outside of the house (which does not belong to me). I left with one of those ‘feelings’.

  2. When they decide to send someone to pick up everyones guns,kids, etc, they’ll have no problem finding whoever it is their looking for.
    Back to the synchrotron…you need one of these to identify prion’s and diseases relating to protein.
    You need one of these in order to build the next generation of protein based computers.
    Of course the place is ripe with spy’s and why not…if someone was looking in their backyard to see if any thing strange is there, do you think his neighbor wants to also know whats there?
    Basically what this synchrotron is…is a giant microscope….capable of identifying the smallest particle known to man, the very building blocks of life…the individual protein such as the malformed protein present in Mad Cow disease.
    It has no dna or rna….it is extremely difficult to kill….not even bombarding it with radiation will kill it.

  3. How Mad is the Mad Cow?

    We were warned somewhere in the bible, where, I cannot recall at the moment about bringing harm upon the cows. Somewhere around the early nineteen hundreds a mad? British researcher discovered that if he fed ground up cattle, sheep, and hog bones to cattle, they gained weight at a much faster rate. Now feeding cows to cows is in fact, turning them into cannibals, correct? Now let us leap ahead 90 years to a British researcher, who, with the use of a synchrotron discovers that not only can these prions be seen, they can identify them! After exhaustive research, they then discover that by turning cows into cannibals, they in turn, cause the smallest particle (building blocks of life) known to man to turn cannibalistic. Now, the healthy prions (shaped like a curly fry) are being consumed and replicated by a malformed prion (shaped like a banana). As such,that is cannibalism at smallest molecular level known to man, hence the holes in the brain. Unique in history? Yes and no. Not long ago a research and media team went to a south pacific island tribe known for it’s cannibalistic rituals of each eating the brain of a just deceased relative.They interviewed the last member of this tribe as to the way her tribal members died and it was found consistent with the human form of CJD. Which begs to question, what about the Mayan Indians? They were known for their cannibalistic rituals. Why did they just up and disappear. What about the vampires in old Europe? I recall, about 35 years ago that somewhere in the foothills of the U.S. Rockies an extreme snowfall causing deer to starve and of course the game wardens moved in with helicopter loads of hay and high protein pellets and saved the day. Or so it would seem, only problem is those “high protein pellets” came from England. They shipped these “pellets” to every industrialized country in the world for years. Now, this so-called ‘disease’ is a little tough to destroy or get rid of. Having no known DNA or RNA makes it impossible to manipulate. Bombardment with radiation has no effect, no known solvent will destroy it, and the only known procedure of destroying it is in an environment of 1350+ degrees of heat for 4 hours under pressure. That is a blast furnace! Medical instruments are impossible to “clean” under this environment. As discovered about five or six years ago at a hospital in Windsor Ont. After operating on a woman, who had spent some time in the U.K., unbeknownst to the hospital at the time,who later died of the human form of CJD. They then proceeded to ship the infected instruments to a number of hospitals all over Ontario spreading the disease. When I watch these British scientists entering a WW11 bomb shelter where the ashes from 4.5 million cattle are stored, dressed in germ warfare gear, you begin to wonder “How on God’s earth do they plan on dealing with this one.” How are governments dealing with this? Their not! It’s under the rug man. People are dying in ever-increasing numbers of this “disease” and the medical community is intentionally misdiagnosing it as early onset Alzheimer’s or early onset dementia. Where is this malformed prion present? Meat, milk, butter, cheese, all dairy products, make-up, gel-caps, jujubes, Jell-O, up until recently insulin, the bone meal you put your hands in and breath the dust from that your fertilizing your garden with, bread and the list go’s on and on…..Scientists have stated “AIDS is like a walk in the park compared to this”, the thing is, this isn’t going to go down in “some faraway country in Africa”, it’s right here, now! In addition, it is picking up steam, people as young as twenty are dying in England and soon here and all over the developed world. About 5 or 6 years ago a women from Spaulding Sask.died in a Watson rest home about one week after the Dr. in Saskatoon died of CJD. She had been to the U.K. accompanying her grandson who was playing hockey there. At her funeral, members of her family stated she died of CJD. Nothing said in the news about that. The fatality rate is 100%. I sometimes wonder what go’s thru the poor elk/deer ranchers mind when the Feds show up, remove his animals and present him with an order to NOT grow any produce or livestock on his property for a high number of years and I think before the time expires they’ll add an extension on to that. Infected livestock leave the soil infected, possibly for thousands of years. Even farmed fish are turning up positive (those pesky high protein pellets again) The Head scientist in charge of the British program is extremely critical of our governments.handling of this impending doomsday scenario, it is real and it’s coming up behind us like something out of an insane science fiction movie. HURRAH for science in their hot pursuit of FAST FAT COWS, HURRAH for ranchers/farmers seriously infected with the monkey-see, monkey-do syndrome and last but by no means least, HURRAH to the rubber-stamping fools in government worldwide…. Stay alert, Stay alive…and take a closer look at what you eat…..

  4. Jackie, I’m aware of the prion disease you referred to –in Papua New Guinea– called ‘kuru’, investigated by D.C. Gadjusek, and the extraordinary show of force in the mad cow case that set-up farmer Mark Purdy in the UK against an alliance of the biggest of Big Pharm in court. But I haven’t seen any evidence yet that prion diseases existed before the late 1950s. It’s been suggested that these diseases are bio-weapons that originated from Porton Down. Perhaps prions that cause CJD have a special chemical affinity for the brain and do not ‘spread’ in foods from other organs or milk. I’m inclined to believe this based on the artificial viruses that were developed in the 60s. Kuru samples may, in fact, have shown the way chemically. The work of Sol Speigelman (1960s) might interest you and raise a whole new set of questions, as it does for me, that certain bio-chemical conditions are required for a prion disease to develop. Those conditions can be induced “innocently” through the food chain in the form of additives that target the brain –excitotoxins and the new wave of ‘preservatives’. There’s certainly a lot more to be said and thanks for your interesting take on things. It’s very provocative.

  5. Jenny,

    Does it make any sense that if one feeds the ground up bones from cows back to the cows one has indeed, turned the cow into a cannibal?
    That being the case then, would it be reasonable to assume the cow might have difficulty in processing the DNA or RNA present in the bones?
    Cows aren’t meant to eat meat or meat byproducts are they?
    I mean…What if the re-introduction of the very same prions back into the same animal caused the mutation of the DNA, RNA or the very prion itself?
    I personally know a fellow who was mixing chicken shit with grain and feeding it to cows.
    He did it at the rate of 90% chicken shit and 10% wheat and barley.
    It was an astounding success!!!
    His steers were double muscled in exactly half the time.
    The secret is the chicken shit is extremely high in protein and already partially digested making it very easy to digest for a cow which has four stomachs.
    I think the chicken only removes 10-15% of the protein in its feed.
    Then one day the feds showed up and shut him down.
    The fellow picked this up from his prof in ag class.
    I wonder what else these profs have up their sleeve?

    • Hi Jackie –far as I know, cows have difficulty processing grain –GRAIN!– which supposedly, in combination with antibiotics, generated the deadly form of E.coli (H157, I think)a ‘new’ organism. Cows are designed to graze leafy plants;soft,tough or stemmy. Anything other than a natural diet will cause problems. So, yes, they are unwitting cannibals and like the forced “swill” that was fed to dairy cows, this is another abomination. Dung is a whole lot less controversial, but there again, vaccinated and inappropriately fed animals cannot provide a healthy food source, period. Some animals eat dung for the high fat content as well as protein/vitamins. See this and for a rounder look at dung with gormet applications, and for a wide look at dung in the economy, here –see article “Dung is Gold Mine”
      I found an article that reflects your concern, –question, did your friend feed the 90% chickenshit-mix to new calves? Did he mix in antibiotics and feed it to growing steers? Is it possible he invented the ‘ratio’ and overplayed an idea from ‘bottom-line’ oriented ag instructors? In theory, this has a sound basis to some extent, which is why it’s permitted but limited by regulation as a percentage of permissable feedstock. You may want to check out the resources at . I’m sure they have a much better comprehension of these practices and abuses.

  6. Jennifer,
    What is your take on the site… and Jane Burgermeister?

    • Jackie,
      I’m not following along with JB’s website. I posted a video here that she made during the summer because I agreed with her sense of caution and the sincerity I feel she has about the subject. That’s all. She got a ‘very bad start’ with me in the credibility dept. but I was glad for her in overcoming some of the handicapping relationships that cast shadows over the quality of her message –one, as I say, which is ultimately cautionary and conservative. Beyond that, I don’t really know what else she has to offer. What’s your take?

  7. Not sure.
    I am interested in the charges filed in federal court in Seattle though.
    As long as the party bringing the charges is a proper party then they should proceed.
    Time will tell.
