Some time ago, a well-meaning family friend gave my children the book If The World Were A Village: A Book About The World’s People by David J. Smith. I remember reading it once and shelving it as something I did not want to read to my children. However, the book recently turned up again, and after rereading it, I thought I’d post what the globalists want our children to learn.
What the children are taught:
“Earth is a crowded place, and it is getting more crowded all the time.” (page 7)
“On average, 1 person dies and 3 babies are born every year. A baby born in the village today can expect to live to age 63.” (page 12)
“There is no shortage of food in the global village…But the food isn’t divided equally.” (page 17)
“If all the money in the village were divided equally, each person would have about $5500 per year. But in the global village, money isn’t divided equally.” (page 22)
“Over 3000 years, the population of the global village doubled 5 times…” (page 27)
“By the year 2100 or sooner, there will be 250 people in the village. This is an important number, because many experts think that 250 is the maximum number of people the village can sustain. And even then, there may be widespread shortages of food, shelter and other resources.
Fortunately, groups such as the United Nations and many governments and private organization are working hard to make sure that the village of the future is a good home for all who live in it. Their goal is a global village in which food, shelter, and other necessities are basic rights for all.” (page 29)
Isn’t it great that we have the United Nations to take care of us all? How did humanity ever manage to survive without it? We should be so thankful that the United Nations will make sure that everyone is looked after and that no one will be born who shouldn’t be.
What the recommended activities for children are:
Ask the children this sample question:
“What do you think could be done to help the world’s population growth rate slow down?” (page 31)
Instructions to teacher:
“In a way, all the opportunities for global connections through e-mail and television make the dream of a unified world look more achievable today than it did in the past. But in other ways, the making-it-come-true part is harder than ever, especially when you consider that the global dream includes adequate food and housing for all, universal literacy, the elimination of unhealthy water supplies and abundant, safe and affordable energy supplies. These goals will only be realized if we can find a way to stabilize the world’s population.” (page 31)
What the fine print in the endnotes says:
“While there is general agreement from one source to another on most of the statistics used in this book, there is some variation from year to year and source to source. The most notable area of disagreement was in predictions for future population growth, but there were also disagreements about food supply, education and clean air and water.” (page 32)
What solutions are usually proposed to reduce the world’s population?
Over the past few years, the solutions I have heard bandied about are:
- Increase access to abortion and birth control to prevent people from being born
- Encourage non-heterosexual sexual behavior, especially homosexuality
- Lace the water supply with fertility-destroying drugs
- Implement a global one or two child policy
- Ban marriage and long-term committed unions between men and women à la Brave New World
- Require a license for those who wish to become parents
- Encourage voluntary sterilization
- Utilize forced abortion and sterilization if “necessary”
- Eliminate maternity leaves and benefits
- Financially penalize families who have “too many” children through increased taxation, fines, etc.
- Denying housing, health care, education, scholarships, loans, etc. to families who have more than the allotted number of children
- Force women to work outside the home and provide limited childcare space
Here is a WND article discussing this very topic: “What!? Look at plans for compulsory sterilization, abortion,” http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=372681#ixzz1fRPOdUbu. Apparently, under Obamacare private insurers are already forbidden from offering maternity benefits to their customers. The author of this article was told by numerous companies that, “When Obama enacted his ‘health care reform,’ he mandated that maternity coverage not be available to any private insurance company.” This forces mothers-to-be to either have no coverage or give up private insurance and place themselves at the mercy of the Obamacare system. In this way, it is only a matter of time before everyone is in the public system and there is no private insurance in the United States.
Ancient wisdom ignored:
Proverbs 18:13: He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
Proverbs 18:17: He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
A neighbor searching — The other side of the story:
If current birthrates remain the same, the available evidence shows that there is actually a population implosion on the horizon where much of the world will see massive demographic collapses and not population explosions as the children are being taught.
It is generally accepted that a woman must give birth to an average of 2.1 children during her lifetime in order to maintain the current global population levels (Here is a link to an environmental science lesson confirming this fact). Birthrates in many countries around the world are much lower than this. Here are the total fertility rates of several North American and European countries, including my own, based on the resources used in the above-mentioned environmental science lesson:
- Italy: 1.29 children born/woman
- Spain: 1.29 children born/woman
- Germany: 1.40 children born/woman
- Switzerland: 1.44 children born/woman
- Canada: 1.61 children born/woman
- Sweden: 1.66 children born/woman
- United Kingdom: 1.66 children born/woman
- Denmark: 1.74 children born/woman
- France: 1.98 children born/woman
- United States: 2.09 children born/woman

Clearly, westernized countries are not even reproducing at a rate capable of maintaining their current population levels. In fact, many western countries now have what are considered to be “suicidal” birthrates, meaning their birthrates are so low that it is virtually impossible for them to recover — even if the women in those countries suddenly starting “popping out children,” so to speak. As stated in the documentary Demographic Winter,
Worldwide, birthrates have been halved in the past 50 years. There are now 59 nations, with 44% of the world’s population, with below-replacement fertility. Sometime in this century, the world’s population will begin to decline. At a certain point, the decline will become rapid. We may even reach population free-fall in our lifetimes.”

Now that you’ve been given at least an inkling of the other side of the story, do you think that the general population, including children, should be manipulated into accepting the coercive measures listed above (which, by the way, are now extending to measures such as “voluntary” assisted suicide and euthanasia)? If not, what will you do to make sure the other side is heard?
