Jon Rappaport Warns Of Alarming Future Trends In Genetic Engineering

On Thursday night, investigative reporter Jon Rappoport warned of alarming future trends in the genetic engineering of human beings. Based on his contacts with several scientists over a period of 20 years, he’s concluded that human genetics research is basically a continuation of the Nazi eugenics program, and that medical research into genes as causes of human illness is simply a cover story.

Part of this secret agenda, he detailed, is to demonstrate that people have genetic predispositions to certain diseases like cancer, so in the case of lawsuits, this argument can be made rather than placing blame for illness on environmental factors like pollution. In citing the book Remaking Eden, Rappoport noted that author Lee Silver foresees a time when the “gen-rich” (genetically enhanced class) will account for 10% of the population, while “naturals” will work as low paid service providers/laborers.

Eventually, the gen-rich class and the naturals will become entirely separate species, with no ability to crossbreed, Silver continued, adding that the trend for genetic enhancement was inevitable. Rappoport had no doubt that some of this research was already underway, possibly under compartmentalized lab studies, so that scientists don’t even realize the significance of what they’re working on. “The best thing that could happen,” he stated, “is that recognized doctors and researchers stand up together, and say, this has to stop.”

    I don’t believe in eugenics. I believe in eumemics. However this doesn’t require murder and sterilization, it just requires convincing and conversions.

      I’m extremely worried about eumemics now too. It happens every day. Especially in offices. Even in “free thinking” student social circles. It’s always been happening, in every social dynamic, since forever, it’s so infuriating!

      Thank you for adding eumemics to my lexicon. I will be able to combat it better now. Now I have a word with which to describe it. Articulation for the win.

    I suppose this is one way of looking at this issue.

    I’m not necessarily worried…until they figure out a way to snip in and out pieces of genes where they’ll be most useful. THEN they’ll be deadly good…and I’ll be worried.

      Yeah, because technology has never been used harmfully. Biotechnology is very much a hot trend and considering we have companies like Monsanto that create gm seeds that die off after one crop and are chemically immune plus our experiments in cloning, I don’t see how this information is really that unreasonable.

      And btw, fearmongering at its worst would be the crap coming from the far right. This is all underground “conspiracy” stuff that gets dismissed at best.
