THE INDIANA CONNECTION

The Florida Forum Editor’s note: This is a particularly important article to understand some of the disruptive forces which have altered our way of life in America. The socialists clearly point out that this was their goal. Few people understand the Socialist’s role or goal in the establishment of the Smithsonian Institute. The underlying Socialist/globalist interconnections of various movements in our society are rarely understood, and we owe Dr. Cuddy a deep debt of gratitude for his tireless efforts to inform our society of these interconnections, and the impact of such movements upon our lives. The dates of these movements show that the Socialists movement in the U.S. is not new, nor without influence.
The impression of most Americans regarding Indiana is that it is a rather typical midwestern state. Historically, however, it is much different. The first commune in America was founded in New Harmony, Indiana in 1825 by British Socialist Robert Owen and his son, Robert Dale Owen, with Robert Owen stating: “I am come to this country to introduce an entire new order of society”
In 1829, Robert Dale Owen and others formed the Working-Man’s Party in New York, and its “great object was to get rid of Christianity, and to convert our churches into halls of science.” This was according to Robert Dale Owen’s partner in the effort, Orestes Brownson, who later converted to Christianity and exposed their earlier plot. Brownson went on to say that “one of the principal movers of the scheme had no mean share in organizing the Smithsonian Institute.” The Smithsonian Institute was established through the efforts of Robert Dale Owen as an Indiana Congressman.
One of the ways that science was to undermine Christianity was through the theory of evolution (prominent at the Smithsonian) as proposed by Charles Darwin beginning in the 1850′s. Darwin’s first cousin was Francis Galton, who coined the term “eugenics,” which he promoted and which included sterilization of “the unfit.” At the end of the 1800s, many people in Indiana were being sterilized, so much so that even the Nazi doctors during the later Nuremberg trials after World War II referred to “the Indiana procedure.”
David Starr Jordan was president of Indiana University from 1885 to 1891. He later was founding president of Stanford University, founder of the radical environmental group called the Sierra Club, and he was a member of Society for Psychical Research. At Indiana University, Jordan taught a course called “Bionomics,” and when he went to Stanford, he took with him his prize pupil, Elwood Cubberly, who would become the Dean of the School of Education at Stanford. In 1915, the Education Trust was formed to control American education through the placement of politically correct “progressive educators” across the land. Cubberly was a leader in this regard, and David Tyack and Elisabeth Hansot in Managers of Virtue wrote that Cubberly has “an educational Tammany Hall.” The same year the Educational Trust was formed, 1915, Jordan was president of the National Education Association.
About the same time, the New York City Board of Education was adopting “The Gary Plan,” named for the “innovative” educational system of Gary, Indiana, introduced by William Wirt of that city, who had been hired by the New York City Board of Education as an “expert” educational consultant. Judge John Hylan successfully ran for mayor of New York City opposing this plan, stating on March 26, 1922: “One of my first acts as Mayor was to pitch out, bag and baggage, from the educational system of our city the Rockefeller agents and the Gary plan of education to fit the children for the mill and factory.”
On April 11, 1933, Rockefeller Foundation president Max Mason assured foundation trustees that in their program, “the Social Sciences will concern themselves with the rationalization of social control, …the control of human behavior.” In this same month, Birth Control Review featured an article by Nazi official Dr. Ernst Rudin on eugenics. Rudin was curator of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Human Genetics, and Eugenics, which for many years was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. And less than a year later, in a February 1934 “progress report” by one of the Rockefeller Foundation’s division heads, one finds the statement: “Can we develop so sound and extensive a genetics that we can hope to breed, in the future, superior men?” (See The Circuit Rider: Rockefeller Money and the Rise of Modern Science by Gerald Jonas, 1989.) After the Second World War, the Rockefeller Foundation would also fund the establishment of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations to see if the kind of social psychiatry developed by the army during wartime could be relevant for civilian society.
Two years after Mason’s statement to the trustees of the Rockefeller Foundation, sexologist Alfred Kinsey was well into research and writing about sexuality. And in 1938, Indiana University president Herman Wells approved Kinsey’s course there on marriage. Kinsey’s research into sexuality expanded, and in 1941, he began to receive funding from Alan Gregg, Rockefeller Foundation medical director, who would also fund the establishment of Tavistock.
The year that Gregg began to look for an organization to fund that would examine wartime social psychiatry’s application to civil society was 1945, which is the same year that Hermann Muller began his long career at Indiana University in the Zoology Department, which was where Kinsey was also located. Kinsey’s perverted sex research is well-documented in Judith Reisman’s Kinsey: Crimes and Consequences. And in her book, one reads that “on February 4, 1933, when Hitler formally assumed power, Muller wrote to Henry Allen Moe, Secretary of The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation in New York, seeking a ‘fellowship reneeeral.’ Muller explained that he had been working on ‘artificial production of mutations…visiting other (Nazi) investigators, planning new experiments.’ He continues: “it has now become evident to me …that a second year of the fellowship would be invaluable….(Earlier) I stayed in Munich, where I acquainted myself with the genetic work of the Zoological Institut, and of the Institut fur Psychiatrie, under Dr. Rudin, whose very comprehensive material offers a rich field for the study of mutations in man, and of their inheritance.’”
