Comments on The Open Conspiracy by H. G. Wells

Continued from Part 10
Ch. XI Forces and resistances in the great modern communities now prevalent, which are antagonistic to the Open Conspiracy. The war with tradition.
Wells claims that the Open Conspiracy
“does not want to destroy existing controls and forms of human association, but either to supersede or amalgamate them into a common world directorate.” (p. 49)
All the power and tyranny will be maintained to push people around, but I doubt that healthy, natural voluntary connections and rules among people will survive being “superseded” and “amalgamated”.
The he says that as long as national governments do their bit in planning for the world directorate, the Open Conspiracy won’t hurt them. Long in advance, what he is describing sounds like the world situation since the UN was founded:
“If constitutions, parliaments, and kings can be dealt with as provisional institutions, trustees for the coming of age of the world commonweal, and so far as they are conducted in that spirit, the Open Conspiracy makes no attack upon them.” (p. 49)
So those who go along and sign on to the agenda will not be crushed.
It’s easy to agree with his criticism of “aggressive nationalists” (p. 49), but he’s being a hypocrite to imply that the Open Conspiracy will be anything but more aggressive and more intolerant. And isn’t mega-nationalism like imperialism, just a tool of the globalists? Hasn’t it just been the same sort of thing as the Open Conspiracy in its elevation of State worship, and its own policies of standardization of huge regions, its attacks on non-conforming cultures and policies of assimilation of native cultures? Weren’t the policies of eugenics and Social Darwinism already dominating the nation states even before the 20th century began, before Wells wrote this?
Isn’t the militancy of the neoconservative “ex”-Trotskyites, where they force so-called “democracy” on the world, just a bad-cop “right-wing” form of militant internationalism disguised as nationalism?
Wells doesn’t have any place for certain kinds of employment:
“Machinery and scientific organization have been and still are revolutionizing productive activity by the progressive elimination of the unskilled worker, the hack, the mere toiler.” (p. 55)
If you eliminate certain kinds of jobs, does that mean people with limited intelligence won’t be able to find work? Does it mean they won’t be born? So there is supposed to be this future where nobody will be needed to rake leaves or sweep floors, where machines replace humans. And we’ve been propagandized like this for over a century. This eugenics-economics technocratic propaganda is just a destructive attack on natural human values.
Wells lets his attitudes all hang out:
“We no longer want that breeding swarm of hefty sweaty bodies without which the former civilizations could not have endured. We want watchful and and understanding guardians and drivers of complex delicate machines …. The less disposed these masters of machines are to inordinate multiplication, the more room and food in the world for their ampler lives.”
So these are the control freak obsessions of population, eugenics and social engineering that have been propagandized and used to undermine respect for human values.
In response, here are three animations by PRI that refute the elitist conspirators’ anti-human and anti-freedom lie of “over-population”, and their efforts to dominate the planet with their actual anti-population policies:
