Skip to comments.Ricky Gervais and the Gathering Storm of Eugenics

Ricky Gervais is all over the television and the Movie Screen these days. He hosted the Golden Globes and is in one film after another. He is a recognizable figure in the contemporary popular culture.
Ricky Gervais is also a eugenicist. He promotes mandatory sterilization. This was evident in an interview he gave to the London Sunday Times over the weekend. He called for the mandatory sterilization of those whom he called irresponsible parents.
This was not an off handed comment by a controversialist comic. The interview makes that clear. He told the reporter there were too many unwanted children, too many people who are poor and struggling . If they all had a good quality of life, no one would complain. What there is, is too many useless people. Too many people who shouldnt have children.
The Reporter asked Gervais how limitations on having children should be applied. He responded ..Yes, based on stupid, fat faces. If theres a woman in leggings, eating chips with a fag in her mouth, sterilize her. Not only is this not funny, it is dangerous.
Comedians such as Gervais are indicators of a culture in rapid decline. The phrase useless people jumped off the page as I read the interview. I had read a variation of it before. In pre-World War II Germany, Dr. Karl Binding, a law professor and one of Europes foremost authorities on criminal law, and Dr. Alfred Hoche, a distinguished psychiatrist and professor of medicine, laid out the results of a "study" they had done in two companion essays entitled "Permitting the Destruction of Unworthy Life."
They used the phrase useless eaters to refer to people in much the same way as Gervais did this weekend. They laid the groundwork for the evil inflicted by the National Socialists.

the world needs maybe one stupid comedian...it needs millions of workers.
We are descending into Marxism/Totalitarianism at a rapid rate of speed. Marxism is the submission to “anything goes” and they find out that what goes is your personal freedom.
Gervais (who I don’t find remotely funny) is typical of the Marxist mentality of a ruling elite who force wealth redistribution, sterility, etc on everyone else.
The only reason that i went to see Avatar is that I interpreted it as a property rights statement. The blue people had property rights and the business/soldiers (I viewed as government) wanted to seize the property rights from the blue people.
The irony of this whole thing is that is going to be the Marxists who will end up “sterlized”.
I miss the days when these people knew they were just entertainers.
Did you see his recent movie “Invention of Lying”?
Eugenics is the tip of his iceberg
One could make the point that a sterilized person would not require an abortion.
His assertion that any life is of less value than another illustrates how far we fall after being born, without moral, ethical and spiritual values.
He is a product of Britain’s socialist descent into Hell.
Hopefully these people will change their ways, but unfortunately too many of them are simply becoming models of behavior for future generations.
Gervais favors eugenics, I don’t. There, I cancel him out. His opinion is worth no more or no less than mine in the scheme of things.
This is the second or third career for Gervais. Perhaps he should’ve been eliminated after his career in pop music fizzled. WHEN exactly is a person a failure? What real contribution is Ricky making in this world . . . apart from flatus?
Takes one to know one.
Absolutely right. Whether we recognize them or not, there are what some call natural laws governing our world. When we live out of step with those laws, we create problems that must be resolved or they will resolve themselves.
Gervais and others can find an audience in societies that reward the non-achieving, non-productive members of society while punishing the achievers and working members who are supporting them. Perhaps such societies open their doors to anyone and everyone and grant them full or even greater rights and privileges than their natural citizens. This sort of injustice is intolerable and should be avoided, kept to a minimum or ended, otherwise a reactionary pressure builds.
Gervais' 'comedy' is one of the cracks in the dam holding back that pressure. Attack him for what he says, but also realize he's just a messenger rather than the problem.
Margaret Sanger would be proud.
