Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos is one of the most powerful men in the world today. As his power has increased, so too has he demonstrated an increasing desire for ideas rooted in eugenics. In the latest of admissions, he said that Earth is the “best planet” but that because of “overpopulation,” most of the human race should be contained in “floating cylinders” around the Earth:
“Guess what the best planet is in this solar system?” asked Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos at a recent media event on his Blue Origin space program.
“It’s easy to know the answer to that question,” he continued. “We’ve sent robotic probes like this one to all of the planets in our solar system. Now, some of them have been fly-bys, but we’ve examined them all. Earth is the best planet. It is not close. This one is really good.”
Bezos then went on to discuss his plan to ship humans off of the best planet in the solar system and send them to live in floating cylinders in space.
Bezos claimed that the growing human population and growing energy consumption will force us to make a choice between “stasis and rationing” and “dynamism and growth”, and claimed that the latter item in his dichotomy is possible only by moving humans off the planet.
“If we’re out in the solar system, we can have a trillion humans in the solar system, which means we’d have a thousand Mozarts and a thousand Einsteins,” Bezos said.
“This would be an incredible civilization. What would this future look like? Where would a trillion humans live? Well it’s very interesting, someone named Gerry O’Neill, a physics professor, looked at this question very carefully and he asked a very precise question that nobody had ever asked before, and it was, ‘Is a planetary surface the best place for humans to expand into the solar system?’ And he and his students set to work on answering that question, and they came to a very surprising — for them — counterintuitive answer: No.”
Bezos went on to describe how the limited surface areas, distance, and gravitational forces of the other planets in our solar system make settling on those planets impractical and cost-prohibitive, while constructing giant space cylinders closer to Earth which can hold a million people is far more practical. These cylinders would spin to replicate Earth’s gravitational pull with centrifugal force.
“These are really pleasant places to live,” Bezos said. “Some of these O’Neill colonies might choose to replicate Earth cities. They might pick historical cities and mimic them in some way. There’d be whole new types of architecture. These are ideal climates. These are short-sleeve environments. This is Maui on its best day, no rain, no storms, no earthquakes.”
No rain? No weather? Just big, spinning cylinders floating monotonously in space? A trillion divided by a million is one million, which means that the best idea the richest man in the world can come up with for the future of our species is to fill our solar system with a million of these floating homogenized space malls.
“If we build this vision, these O’Neill colonies, where does it take us? What does it mean for Earth?” Bezos asked.
“Earth ends up zoned, residential, and light industry. It’ll be a beautiful place to live, it’ll be a beautiful place to visit, it’ll be a beautiful place to go to college, and to do some light industry. But heavy industry, polluting industry, all the things that are damaging our planet, those will be done off Earth. We get to have both. We get to keep this unique gem of a planet, which is completely irreplaceable — there is no Plan B. We have to save this planet. And we shouldn’t give up a future of our grandchildren’s grandchildren of dynamism and growth. We can have both.”
Now, if you look at the behavior of Jeff Bezos, who exploits his employees and destroys his competitors, and who some experts say is trying to take over the underlying infrastructure of our entire economy, you can feel reasonably confident that this man has no intention of leaving “this unique gem of a planet”, nor of having the heirs to his empire leave either. When you see this Pentagon advisory board member and CIA contractor planning to ship humans off the Earth’s surface so the planet can thrive, you may be certain that he’s talking about other humans. The unworthy ones. The ones who weren’t sociopathic enough to climb the capitalist ladder by stepping on the backs of everyone else.
And make no mistake, when Bezos talks about saving the planet for “our grandchildren’s grandchildren”, he’s not just talking about his heirs, he’s talking about himself. Bezos has invested large amounts of wealth in biotech aimed at reversing the aging process and cracking the secret of immortality. (source, source)
The idea itself would seem to be something out of a James Bond novel or, perhaps more realistically, the Austin Powers film trilogy.
It is not the first time that Bezos has shown himself to embrace such ideas. As recently as March 2019 Shoebat.com reported that Bezos said the future of the human race is in space and that population control is necessary. However, in this story he spoke of a situation where the Earth would be destroyed. This recent article, scarcely two months after his previous words, seem to indicate that he has modified his opinion on the destruction of the Earth. Rather, it seems that because the Earth is so good, it is almost as though he is suggesting that only certain types of people would be allowed to be on Earth, and everybody else would have to be in these “floating cylinders”.
Who gets to decide who these people who have the “privilege” of staying on Earth are, versus those forced to an involuntary and intergalactic containment?
Shoebat.com can suggest a potential answer to this. In 2018, I wrote an exclusive expose on Bezo’s connections to a little known group called the Long Now Foundation. You can read the full piece here, but the essence is that this group is a futurist group with eugenicist ideas that is working on the construction of two massive clocks, one in Nevada, and the other on Jeff Bezos’ property in West Texas that is meant to complete a full rotation every ten thousand years.
The Long Now Foundation hosts speakers who support and has members who maintain connections with people who support the transhumanist movement, which is subcategory of darwinian evolution that sees technology as part of the “evolutionary process.” According to transhumanitsts, the next phase of man’s evolution is, as Peter Diamandis famously stated, is from humanity to the stars where the evolved members of the human race become an “interplanetary species”. It is the the culmination of many ideas promoted by science fiction novels and film since the 1950s.
These evolutionists believe that such changes will result in the human achievement of immortality, as many infamous transhumanists such as Ray Kurzweil and Michio Kaku have stated. For them and those who support them, now is the age when man casts off religion because he becomes the very diety written about in ages past. It is nothing more than a contemporary version of the sin of the garden of Eden.
So then what happens to the rest of humanity? As evolution teaches that the other species of human eventually died out because they were inferior and so were “naturally selected” for destruction, as opposed to the evolved who were “naturally selected” for survival, their beliefs are only told in part for the public to see. This is because one must conclude that since they see themselves as part of the next phase of evolution, those who do not believe as such must be part of the next mass extinction of members of the human race.
The CEO’s statements about putting humanity into giant “floating cylinders” is ridiculous, but so equally deceived is the man who believes in evolution and that a future which looks like a page from a novel by Isaac Asimov or Robert Heinlein. Bezos, as indicated by his statements above, does not seem to be particular to whether humanity is going to populate the stars because Earth will be destroyed, or if just certain people will live on Earth.
What one is certain of is the belief that the whole lot share, which is that the world has too many people, and that part of the next phase of “evolution” involves some form of technology and biohacking to engineer longer lives with the objective of achieving divinity, and some way of reducing the human population.
Now reducing the population is not easy, because one does not stop people from reproducing as it is a natural act. That is, unless there is an event that causes a lot of people to die, or there is an “enforcement” of laws and policies that restrict human reproduction. Both would have to be imposed from without, and almost absolutely so by violence. Yet to men of power who lack morals and would do anything to keep it, any end for them justified the means that they follow to achieve it. Men such as those who would suggest putting the human race into a floating prison camp, or perhaps in the future, just wiping out most completely.
