The Club of Rome and the Rise of the “Predictive Modelling” Mafia

While many are now familiar with the manipulation of predictive modelling during the COVID-19 crisis, a network of powerful Malthusians have used the same tactics for the better part of the last century in order to sell and impose their agenda.


… On page 118 of an autobiographical account of the Club of Rome entitled ‘The First Global Revolution’ published in 1991, Sir Alexander King most candidly wrote:

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill… All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”

The Club of Rome quickly set up branches across the Western world with members ranging from select ideologues in the political, business, and scientific community who all agreed that society’s best form of governance was a scientific dictatorship. The Canadian branch of the organization was co-founded by the hyperactive Maurice Strong himself in 1970 alongside a nest of Fabians and Rhodes Scholars including Club of Rome devotee Pierre Trudeau. More on this will be said below.

One particularly interesting 1973 propaganda film was produced by ABC News and showcases the Club of Rome-MIT “innovation” on computer modelling. Describing the new modelling technology unveiled by MIT and the Club of Rome, the video’s narrator states:

“What it does for the first time in man’s history on the planet is to look at the world as one system. It shows that Earth cannot sustain present population and industrial growth for much more than a few decades.”

  1. Although modelling predictions of pollution, population change and resource consumption is largely common sense, the weightings of the rates of growth and change are highly simplistic. Moreover, the interactions between them are somewhat opaque. The Club of Rome, comprising largely bankers, multi-national corporate leaders and heads of certain states with a few computer scientists was not a body likely to promote the best interests of the general public. Their report in 1970 ‘The Limits to Growth’ focussed on denigrating the use of oil and its polluting effects. This was when the rise of OPEC was commanding ever-increasing prices. This, in turn, empowered OPEC countries, mostly in the Middle East, to assert their political rights. One of these was the defence of their Islamic populations like the Palestinians and Iranians from ‘Western’ military domination. Thus, an ulterior motive of that project may have been to set the World against those people, just as ‘9-11’ did, more overtly, 31 years later.

  2. Malthusians get it wrong every single time they come up with some computer prediction based on fixed assumptions. They don’t take into account Man’s wilful discovery of physical principles of nature. Like gravity for instance. Kepler discovered gravity and made the law of gravity knowable in his writings. You can’t see gravity or weigh it can you? Yet Kepler discovered it and proved it existed over the course of his astronomical studies.

    Alexander King and the Club of Death was behind Forrester and Meadows’s book “Limits to Growth”. They were proven wrong by Lyndon LaRouche who wrote “There Are No Limits to Growth” refuting every false notion and unscientific theories Forrester and Meadows’s used to promote depopulation, the core of their argument.

    A modern-day Promethean, Lyndon LaRouche demonstrated scientifically that humans are the only creative discoverers of principle in the Universe. This idea corresponds with Vernadsky’s notion that the biosphere is made up of three processes. Abiotic-non-living, Biotic-living, and Noetic-human mind. Vernadsky and LaRouche understood the concept of Man as the determinate factor in living vs non-living processes. That man’s existence is above all else necessary for the continued existence and development of the biosphere. It is the Noetic principle that corresponds with human progress, said LaRouche.

    LaRouche went to work in the mid 1950s to develop a scientific approach to economics. What he developed is what LaRouche termed the LaRouche-Reiman method for measuring economic performance not in terms of money, but in terms of what is required to increase relative potential population density.

    LaRouche pointed out that only Man is capable of altering nature. Only Man is endowed by the Creator with the creative potential to wilfully discover new physical principle. This attribute is what it means to be human. The lower species are not capable of this. Only Man made in the image of the Creator is capable of conciously and willfully improving the conditions of life for mankind. This makes every life sacred and necessary. The continued existence of the humans species depends on it.

    We are 8 billion people and counting. And as long as Man continues to discover and master new physical laws of nature, Mankind will solve any problem or any crisis that may arise.
    With each new discovery of principle, Man increases his power over nature. You might say Man bends nature to the will of Man. And the human progress that comes after is measurable per capita by the machine tool design principle….one man doing the work of a hundred men with a heat powered machine. New discoveries that translate into new technologies introduced in the production process, causes not increase in production per capita, but also increase in the productive powers of labor. And with each new increase in the productive powers of labor, there is a corresponding increase in the relative potential population density in society.
    The economics of the past several decades has meant only scarcity and deprivation while unfettered speculation continues to erode the productive potential of nations under such rule. Deindustrialization and the continued underdevelopment of Nuclear fission and Fusion technologies has prevented increase in relative potential population density in the USA.
    Longevity in the USA has reportedly dropped from 78 to 76 years! The biggest drop in decades.

    What is called for is a return to real science. And doing all that we can that is required to recover from decades of wrong policies. From the standpoint of Lyndon LaRouche’s Four Laws, emergency measures are needed now. Measures which are absolutely necessary for recovery to begin.
    They start with Glass-Steagall bankruptcy reorganization of the commercial banking system and the cancelation of trillions of derivatives that are choking credit off from getting to the real economy.

    We need a credit system to replace the bankrupt monetary system. We also need credit mechanisms such as a National Bank for purposes of lending long term in economic infrastructure. We need a massive build up of US machine tool capabilities. Great projects in water management, nuclear power generation, and modern high speed transport systems using Mag-lev technology. We need to create a modern healthcare platform capable of handling future pandemics with a minimum of death and injury. And we need commercial fusion development that will power our economy and those of other nations forward into the future. And with fusion powered rockets spacecraft will take astronauts further into deep space than any of today’s liquid fuel rockets will.
    These are the emergency measures that are needed today. Anything else is whistling past the graveyard.
