Sisters of the Good Shepherd Magdalene AsylumsBefore the welfare net existed, religious orders used to catch orphans & unmarried mothers abandoned by their families. They were called laundry slaves – women & teenage girls employed in commercial laundries run by Catholic religious orders, the idea being to combine rehabilitation of supposed delinquents with the chance to earn a modest profit. In Ireland, where welfare of juveniles was generally in church hands, such laundries were commonplace, the girls often housed in so-called magdalenes.Wal Campbell claimed the Good Shepherd Sisters were involved in a major racket. His paper hinted at babies born in convents & girls in the laundries being killed off or dying from exhaustion & being buried in strange places – Alan Gill The last of the convent laundries closed in the 1970s.

Broken Rites Australia, non-profit organization of survivors of church-related sexual abuse who advocate for those who need help, is familiar with adult callers abused as children & women abused in a vulnerable situation, a single, or seperated, or unhappily married woman who consulted a church pastor & was then sexually abused in the course of counselling. They’ve also seen sick & medicated women abused by hospital chaplains. Within the Catholic Church, victims keep silent. Parents do not go to the police. Reporting is only to a church official, which is great for the church because they can then move the offender to a new area with new targets or an overseas study trip. Arrival or leaving details are of course not discussed with parishoners. The Black Collar Crime Cases consist of a survivor who consulted with police & found police had aggregate data of their abuser already.

British Home Children: My Father was a reserved and solitary man, who quietly stood at the fringe of conversations when others spoke of their past or families. His family was a mystery to him. He did not know who he was. He never had a Birth Certificate, and for the first 33 years of his life, had nothing to verify who he was. From the age of 33-48, he carried a tattered “To Whom it May Concern” letter for identification. It stated his name and identified him as “of British nationality.” For the first half of his life, he had serious doubts if his surname was really “Snow.” He wondered if someone had simply invented it and assigned it to him. When he was 48 years old, he obtained a Baptism Certificate that confirmed his name, and identified his Mother, but not his Father. From the age of 48-64, this was all he had for identification. When he was 64 years old, he received his Canadian Citizenship. All his life, he tried to identify his Parents and Family – and find out who he was. He became a ward of the Church of England Society for Providing Homes for Waifs & Strays when he was 4 years old in 1913. They placed him in a foster home in a small village in England from the age of 4-12. They then transferred him to a Home for Boys from the age of 12-15. When he was 15, they gave him the “choice” of emigrating to Australia or Canada. No one wanted him in England. They shipped him to Canada and sent him to work on farms in Ontario and Quebec. He was part of the little-known British Child Emigration Scheme. 50 childcare organizations emigrated 100,000 children between 1880-1930 to Canada. These children ranged in age from 6-15 years old, and were known as “The Home Children.” The organizations professed a dominant motive of providing children with better lives than what they might have had in England, but they had other ignoble motives. Children worked as indentured farm labourers in harsh conditions until they were 18 years old. They were not allowed to go to school. They were not entitled to medical care. They had little protection under the law. They were not paid for their farm labour of 16 hours per day and 6 days per week. A third to a half of these children were neglected and abused, because the British organizations did not provide adequate inspections of their placements. They operated outside the control of the fledgling colony of Canada. The British Home Children were not voluntary “migrants” who “emigrated” to new lands. They were commodities that were deported because they were unwanted in Britain. The organizations expelled, banished, abandoned, and forgot them. A ‘scheme’ can be defined as a visionary plan, a foolish project, or a selfseeking, and underhanded plot. I prefer to call it the British Child Deportation Scheme. – Professor Snow

SS Lebensborn [Spring of Life]
UN War-crimes Forced Maternity & Sexual Violence
1933: All abortions outlawed & doctors who violate the law executed. Women are removed from the work force & encouraged to have children, whether they are married or not. Nazis promote Aryan births through marriage loans, child subsidies & official decorations for hero mothers of 4 children or more.
1936: Heinrich Himmler sets up the Lebensborn Maternity Homes for racially pure women & girls to give birth in secret. Children adopted by the NAZI party. Himmler offers promotions to SS Men based on the number of offspring they produce. Kidnappings, Germanisation & subsequent killings of thousands of children from the occupied countries
Lebensborn Homes in Germany: Between 1936 & 1945 9 Lebensborn homes were founded in Germany. The 1st to open in 1936 was ‘Hochland’ in Steinhöring near Munich. It was in active operation until 1945 & functioned as the Lebensborn Central Council during the last years of the war. In 1937 the homes ‘Harz’ in Wenigerode & ‘Kurmark’ in Klosterheide near Neuroppin were founded. In 1938 ‘Friesland’ near Bremen & ‘Pommern’ in Bad Polzin, about a 100 km from Stettin, opened their doors. In the next year ‘Taunus’ in Wiesbaden came into operation. And finally in 1942 ‘Sonnenwiese’in Kohren Sahlis, near Leipzig, & ‘Schwarzwald’ in Nordrach opened their doors. The last home, ‘Franken’ became operational in 1944. In Norway, they had 10 homes. In Austria 2 homes were founded & in Belgium, Luxemburg & France 1 each.

In 1931 the manufacturers’ imperium went bankrupt. The furniture was put into storage & the property was bought by the Lebensborn organisation in 1937. In 1941 the staff was moved to other Lebensborn homes, & the head nurse & the secretary were sent to Norway to set up a series of Lebensborn homes in that country. At the end of the war most of the documents were burnt by the Lebensborn Council. Midwives are written on the birth certificates & obligated to report to the Office of Health about disabilities. In this way they are also responsible for the killing of the disabled & unhealthy children. It is known that disabled children were born, as well as children with genetic disorders. It is also known that these children were brought to institutions to be killed. Stangely enough, the midwives of home Friesland who Dorothee Smitz-Köster interviewed, could not remember the existence of such children...

There were 20,000 German slave labor camps. IBM’s German subsidiary DeHoMag: Deutsche Hollerith Maschinenwerk Aktiengesellschaft provided the NAZI regime with punch card machines. It was taken over by the NAZIs in 1939. ‘Aided by the company’s custom-designed & constantly updated Hollerith systems, Hitler was able to automate his persecution of the Jews. Historians have always been amazed at the speed & accuracy with which the Nazis were able to identify & locate European Jewry. Until now, the pieces of this puzzle have never been fully assembled. The fact is, IBM technology was used to organize nearly everything in Germany & then Nazi Europe, from the identification of the Jews in censuses, registrations, & ancestral tracing programs to the running of railroads & organizing of concentration camp slave labor.’ – Edwin Black
1933: Hitler comes to power & orders a census. Storm Troopers & SS: ShutzStaffel collect the census information door to door. Tabulating staffers supplied by the German Labor Front’s Berlin Employment Office at the Karstadthaus Prussian Statistical Office at Alexanderplatz under Dr. Höpker. 450 punching stations; punched forms delivered to 20 key typewriter-like input engines. Cards funneled down Hollerith counting chutes at the rate of 250,000 per hour. The whole census takes 4 months. Proofing machines verify information at 15,000 cards per hour. Jewish counting cards are processed seperately.
1934: The process of sterilizing the unfit is called Hollerith Nachtrichten: Hollerith News Messaging. The welfare office punchcards are sent to the new expanded sorting office in Lichterfeld.
1939: Greater Reich Racial Census. Up unto this point the punch cards can only be sorted by numbers, with certain numbers corresponding to race, profession, or geography.

Dora a death commando for Buchenwald The former crematorium, 1 of 2 buildings still intact, is a museum. ‘The Mission had been told that Nordhausen was a large underground factory, & that they would see extraordinary production methods. The reaction of the Mission to this visit ... was one of the utmost revulsion & disgust. This factory is the epitome of megalomaniac production & robot efficiency & layout. Everything was ruthlessly executed with utter disregard for humanitarian considerations. The record of Nordhausen is a most unenviable one, & we were told that 250 of the slave workers perished every day, due to overwork & malnutrition. Some of the Mission visited a slave workers’ encampment, talked to a Dutch doctor who had been there throughout the war, & saw many of the wretched inmates, who were in an apalling state, although receiving every medical attention now. They also saw stretchers heavily saturated in blood, a room in which there was a slab on which the bodies were drained of blood, & the incinerators in which the bodies were burnt. These are all facts which require to be seen to be fully appreciated.

A rigid form of social discrimination based on birth where movement between is morally unacceptable.

A further addition were the Untouchables, people whose touch-even whose shadow-was & is considered ritually polluting. Caste reflects the Hindu preoccupation of purity & pollution. Higher castes depend on lower castes to remove their pollution while lower castes need the higher to trickle purity down to them. During the middle ages members of lower castes were barred from acting as witnesses in any cases brought against higher castes. (Bret Wallach)

The higher & wealthier castes frequently use physical force to keep their privileges. The clearest marker is commensalism: a person who refuses to eat with another, or allow his food to be prepared by another, considers the other to be of an inferior caste. Come lunch, everyone will sit down except perhaps for 1 or 2 people who will slip away. They’re Brahmin will be the explanation. 80% of India’s judges &aamp; 60% of its senior administrators are Brahmins, although Brahmins constitute only 5% of India’s population. ...Caste provides an incomparable excuse to disregard human suffering. See a double amputee crawling along the street with a begging bowl? No problem: ‘it’s his karma.’ See a child with a begging bowl, a plastic bag of urine tied to his side & hoses penetrating his abdomen? No need for concern: he deserves it. See the destitute widow, cast off by her family since her husband’s death? Feel no pity. Caste provides an air-tight rationale for ignoring pain. That’s why it often strikes Westerners as appallingly callous: they’ve been taught to believe, at least, that people should help each other. That’s why beggars in India invariably zero in on Westerners as easy marks. (Wallach)

Les Soeurs de Misericorde a.k.a The Sisters of Mercy
(pron. MAWD-LIHN). Named for Mary Magdalene, the prostitute, founded in 1272 A.D by Bernard of Marseille for reformed prostitutes. Penitent branch founded in Barcelona, Catalon in 1218 by Saint Peter Nolasco.

Within the communal organizations of towns, local charitable institutions such as almshouses were established by confraternities or guilds, or by successful individual laymen concerned with the welfare of their souls, but often only local historians are aware of them.
Accounts of the roots of Los Penitentes date back at least a 1000 years to the flagellant orders in Spain & Italy. ... These men whip themselves with a short whip: disciplina during Holy Week, carry heavy crosses: maderos, & tie their limbs to crosses to hinder the circulation of blood on Good Friday. A wooden wagon, el carro de la muerte: the cart of death, bore a figure representing death & pointing forward an arrow with stretched bow. This procession went through the streets to the church, where the Penitentes prayed, continued their scourgings, returned in procession to the house: morada.

...Children who misbehaved were told to mend their ways or they’d be sent to the laundries with the sisters.

In receiving patients no discrimination is made in regard to religion, colour, or nationality. After their convalescence, those who desire to remain in the home are placed under a special sister & are known as Daughters of St. Margaret. They follow a certain rule of life but contract no religious obligations. Should they desire to remain in the convent, after a period of probation, they are allowed to become Magdalens & eventually take the vows of the Magdalen order. – Catholic Encyclopedia: Congregation of the Sisters of Misericordiae
Magdalens also known as Penitents or Maggies forced to work in laundries with punishment beatings for trying to escape. Inmates required until the 1970s to address all staff as mother & called children. Admitted to institutions at the request of family members, abusive husbands or priests. Without a family member on the outside who would vouch for them, some penitents would stay in the asylums for the rest of their lives, many of them taking religious vowsWikipedia: Frances Finnegan.

A sullen temper, often shown by refusing food, is best dealt with by silence. When a girl wakes up to the fact that no one takes any notice, nor is troubled by her self-starvation, she gets weary of her self-imposed martyrdom & learns sense. – Arthur J. S. Maddison, Hints on Rescue Work, A Handbook for Missionaries & Superintendants of Homes ©1898

By the early 20th century, the role had been expanded to care for unwed mothers & other young women the church considered to be wayward. The stigma attached to illegitimacy & promiscuity was so severe that the woman was often thrown out of her home, driven from her community, disowned by her family. And for many, the laundries were the only things that stood between them & the street. Although few visual records could be found, some of the massive compounds are still standing. ..When the last laundries finally closed, most of the Magdalenes had nowhere to go. Many of them now reside in group homes & convents around the country. For example, a convent in Dublin still holds some women now being cared for by the same nuns who once confined them. The association that represents the nuns, or the Conference of Religious of Ireland, declined an interview. It provided CBS a statement saying, the Sisters accept the part they played in this regrettable era & asked that it be examined in context. The statement also admits that many former Magdalenes had painful memories & welcomed the opportunity for them to speak with us. But when the CBS reporter knocked on the door, he was told, There's no one to speak. – Violet Feng: The Magdalene Laundry: A Life of Servitude Behind Convent Walls

Vincent Browne, founder of Magill magazine, believes what happened have a lot to do with people’s attitudes on sex & women. “That part of the veneration of the Blessed Virgin has been to accord a status to virginity. To some extent, women who had had sex, within or without marriage, were regarded as unclean &- and as less than perfect.” Browne said the nuns believed that through suffering & hard work in the laundries for the greater glory of God, they might find salvation in heaven. “And I suppose a lot of conscientious Catholics were going to be preserved for the hereafter, even though their lives on Earth was going to be harsh & difficult,” he added. – CBS News Sunday Morning

People in the News: Bono becomes a knight in less-than-somber manner: Associated Press, March 31st 2007
Irish rock star & global humanitarian Bono became a knight of the British empire Thursday – and joked that his youngest son thought he was about to become a Jedi instead. Bono, 46, was named a Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in an informal, laugh-filled ceremony in the Dublin home of British Ambassador David Reddaway.
 “You have permission to call me anything you want – except sir, all right? Lord of lords, your demigodness, that’ll do,” he told reporters afterward.
 Because he is an Irish citizen, Bono won’t have the title of Sir before his name. That honor is reserved for citizens of the United Kingdom or British Commonwealth countries. Ireland left the Commonwealth when it became a republic in 1949.

People who converted for food known as soupers, a derogatory epithet featured in the press well into the 1870s. In the words of their peers: they took the soup. In order to avoid its stigma, many charities decided to only serve those whose religious persuasions matched their own. – Wikipedia

The Relief Commission
established by the Government in November 1845. The list of local subscribers to the relief funds was required to be published. Local relief committees could purchase imported American corn & sell it at cost price. The committees were not supposed to distribute free food except to those unfit for work who could not gain entry to the Workhouse. A whole family had to enter the workhouse to qualify for relief. – Waterford County Museum

'Fever, dysentery & diarrhoea are greatly on the increase, beginning with vomiting, pains, headache very intense; coming to a cnsis in about 7 days, relapsing again once or twice, from which death occurred through mere debility or diarrhoea, caused & kept up by bad food, principally Indian meal, supplied to them in small quanitities, & which they invariably swallow after only a few minutes boiling & sometimes cold & raw'. – Dr Daly (Mayo 201)

Captain Wynne, the District Inspector for Clare, Christmas Eve, 1846: There is no doubt that the Famine advances upon us with giant strides. The effects of the Famine are discernible everywhere; not a domestic animal to be seen. It is an alarming fact that, this day, in the town of Ennis, there was not a stone of breadstuff of any description to be had on any terms, nor a loaf of bread ...I ventured through the parishes to ascertain the condition of the inhabitants. Although a man not easily moved, I confess myself unmanned by the extent & intensity of suffering I witnessed, more especially the women & little children, crowds of whom were to be seen scattered over the turnip fields, like a flock of famished crows, devouring the raw turnips, mothers half naked, shivering in the snow & sleet, uttering exclamations of despair whilst their children were screaming with hunger. I am a match for anything else I may meet here but this I cannot stand. I have traversed a considerable extent of my district this week & I find distress everywhere on the increase. Without food we cannot last many days longer; the Public Works must fail in keeping the population alive. The workhouse is full, & police are stationed at the doors to keep the numerous applicants out; therefore no relief can be expected from that quarter.

1703 an Act of the Irish Parliament provided for the setting up of a House of Industry in Dublin. A workhouse was subsequently erected on land at the SW. of James’s Street & was administered by a body called The Governor & Guardians of the Poor whose members included the Lord Lieutenant, Lord Mayor, Lord Chancellor, Protestant Archbishop of Dublin, sheriffs, Justices of the Peace, & members of the Corporation. This body, which met monthly, had powers to place people in the workhouse, & to discipline those already there if they disobeyed workhouse regulations. Punishments could include flogging, imprisonment or deportation. – Dublin South Poorlaw Union (71)

Life in Mongolia before Mongolian & Russian Communists took over resembled life in Tibet. The monks had religious & political power & great wealth. They owned large herds, which were given to them by the people as offerings. The youngest son of each family was expected to become a monk. The monks & a small group of nobles made up Mongolia’s upper class. The lower class consisted chiefly of herders who moved about the country with their flocks. The Communists established large livestock farms & tried to force herders to settle there. In the early 1990’s, the government allowed herders to leave the large farms. At the end of the 1990s the livestock herds & most agricultural land came under private ownership. (World Book Encyclopedia)

It was built along the Chelm-Wlodawa railway line, in a wooded, swampy, thinly populated region. Before the war, Luta was predominately a Ukrainian village, with Poles & Jews. The Germans came & took these Jewish families to the forest & shot them. In Luta, everyone knew the Germans were building a death camp nearby. On one occasion, all the men were taken by Germans to be shot in retaliation for the partisan attacks on German soldiers. They were almost executed, but the women of Luta bought them back. The paid the Germans with a huge supply of eggs. ...When I was 16, I was forced one cold December day in 1942 to take the family’s horse & wooden cart to transport Jews to Sobibor. I wasn’t the only one. Every peasant had to provide a cart. My father was supposed to transport the Jews, but he was so scared, he hid, & I had to do it. Once we got to Sobibor, the guards took the carts into the camp & left the peasants outside. I knew what was going to happen to my passengers. Everyone in the village knew. You could smell the smoke all the way from Sobibor to Luta. There’s not a moment in my life when I forget what happened. I can’t forget. I remember all the time. When I tell my family or friends the story of what happened, they don’t believe it.

Allgemeine Waffen SS Hauptsturmführer: Amon Leopold Göth found by the Allies at Bad Tolz Mental Institution, pleaded not guilty at trial & was hanged by the Supreme National Tribunal of Poland. Concerning the punishment of Fascist-Hitlerite criminals guilty of murder & ill-treatment of the civilian population & of prisoners of war, & the punishment of traitors to the Polish Nation, as amended by the Decree of 16th February, 1945. United Nations War Crimes Commission.

“Apart from denying certain facts & trying to throw the blame upon others or diminish the extent & gravity of the crimes alleged, the accused pleaded that he was only carrying out orders & instructions received from his superiors, which he had to obey as a military person. He also contended that the penalties he was inflicting upon the inmates; including putting them to death, were within his disciplinary jurisdiction as commandant of the camp, & were in accordance with the German regulations in force. The accused raised also the defence that his acts were legal because they were based on military necessity. Finally, one of the defending Counsel submitted that the Decree of 31st August, 1944, was not applicable to the accused in view of his German nationality, as it provided only for punishment of Polish subjects who committed offences against their own co-nationals. This plea could not, however, be upheld in view of the fact that, according to Article 3 para. 1, of the Polish Criminal Code, the Polish Criminal law is applicable to all persons, irrespective of their nationality, who committed a crime on the territory of the Polish State.”

Third, there’s a fear that the giant companies developing these crops may succeed in patenting both transgenic & conventional crops & in this way slow down conventional breeding. ’ – Professor Brett Wallach Ph.D

1941 Census: ‘Romania’s massive census was so sophisticated it even enumerated which Roma Gypsies were already refugees temporarily absent or already interned in a concentration camp.

Hence, the IBM tabulations would record them as Gypsy regardless of the ethnic box checked. ...Prior to IBM’s 1941 system of census cross-tabulation, all 3 different types of Gypsies in Romania, regardless of whether they wandered, resided in forest camps or settled in villages, could not all be efficiently identified.

Bypass built from Prague 60 km away to the camp. 11 barracks, military installations partly built into the redoubt as casemates, the Small Fortress police prison of the Prague Gestapo with a strong SS guard division, & 218 civilian houses. Protectorate Gendarmes a special division transferred to Terezin. Contact with prisoners punished by death. Terezin founded by Austrian Emperor Joseph I as a military fortress in the basin of the river Labe at the confluence of the Labe & Ohe rivers. Neighboring Litomerice was already part of the Sudeten district. Prisoners forced to split mica, produce war machinery, explosives, ink powder. (Porges). 1942: Autumn Transports: Death Marches: 50,000+ per year processed at the Bohusovice railway station, starvation, typhoid fever, spotted fever, no sanitation. Those still living from the September transports killed in March in the gas chambers. Living witnesses, those who knew too much, removed. ‘The Terezin columbarium, filled with paper urns containing the ashes of prisoners tortured to death in Terezin & cremated in the crematorium of the camp, liquidated. About 17 thousand urns, possibly more, were dumped in the Ohe river, the remainder in a pit near the Litomerice concentration camp’
Stadtverschonerung: City Beautifying Activity: On 23rd June, 1944, Dr. Rossel & 2 Danish Red Cross delegates visited Terezin. This the Nazi organizers of the final solution got an excellent reference from Dr Rossel. "Let us say that to our complete amazement we found in the ghetto a town which is living a nearly normal life... This Jewish town is remarkable..." he wrote in his report & as evidence he enthusiastically described his own impressions. In addition, ex privatissima industria, Dr Rossel sent photos taken by him in Terezin to the German Minister of Foreign Affairs, Eberhard von Thadden. Among them were also pictures of children prisoners playing in a park. Within 4 months all these children had ended their lives in a gas chamber. On March 5, 1945 Eichman announced a 2nd visit of the International Committee of the Red Cross. The mass graves were levelled & an imitation of a Jewish cemetery with Hebrew inscriptions was established. Pavements were again washed & the windows were furnished with curtains. The SS Headquarters checked nearly every day on how the rehearsals for the children’s opera The Beetles was progressing. From Prague they ordered everything needed for staging The Tales of Hofmann. A day before the inspection, sugar, cheese & chocolate were distributed to the prisoners. On April 6, the delegation of the Red Cross International Committee arrived. The report by Otto Lehner was even more monstrous than the earlier one by Maurice Rossel. (Porges)

During the 16th century, Spain held the equivalent of US$1.5 trillion in gold & silver received from New Spain. The wealthy preferred to invest their fortunes in public debt: juros, backed by silver imports, rather than agriculture. This helped perpetuate the medieval aristocratic prejudice that saw manual work as dishonorable. The problems caused by inflation were discussed by scholars at the School of Salamanca & arbitristas but they had no impact on the Habsburg government. The Habsburg dynasty squandered the riches in wars across Europe for Habsburg interests, defaulted on their debt several times, & left Spain bankrupt. (Wikipedia: Spanish Empire)

On December 6, 1944 a train dispatched from the Bergen-Belsen camp with 1 368 Jewish prisoners actually crossed the Swiss border. Among them were 97 Jews from Czechoslovakia. 4 days earlier - according to the recollections of Felix Kersten whom Himmler had been using for his international political contacts - the Reichsfuhrer of the SS at a meeting in Triberg promised to free 2 to 3,000 Jewish prisoners from Terezin on condition that the world press would not interpret this release as a sign of weakness on the part of Germany. On January 15, 1945, Himmler met Jean-Marie Musy, the former chairman of the Swiss Confederation Council for the 2nd time, & displayed his readiness to enable the departure of Jewish emigrants if Germany received for every one of them goods to the value of $1,000. The 1st of these transports left Terezin on February 5 & 2 days later was welcomed on Swiss soil. According to Himmler's records of his meeting with Musy in January, this Swiss politician, who sympathized with Nazi Germany, repeated again that this Jewish problem by itself is only a secondary affair because the main thing is that it could stimulate greater developments. These did not take place and the 1st Terezin transport to Switzerland was the last one. (Porges)

Hanging: Long ago they hanged a man for stealing sheep, or any other goods, that would be worth more than 4 pence halfpenny. It is recorded of a man who took the plough-share off a plough from a place near Colby to Ballarobert. The share was found on his plough, & the price put on it by the jury was 4 pence halfpenny, & he was hanged. Costain, the great grandfather of John John the grandson, was the 1st man who went against the law. There was not any market for barley, but to make ale of it, & a man stole a sack of barley, Costain was on the jury, & he put the price of 4 pence on the barley, & the jury divided into 2 divisions, & the man got off. The deemster asked Costain (son of Steven), How many sacks of barley he would sell at that price? As many sacks as the dead you could make alive after they were hanged. Lord Athol changed the law.

1670: Royal Society Stepped Reckoner Machine: Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibnitz: Believed by many, including my grandmother, of killing people in the workhouse system. The 1st machine that could execute all 4 basic arithmetical operations. His calculus ratiocinator anticipated aspects of the universal Turing machine. A number of such machines made during his years in Hanover by a craftsman working under Leibniz’s supervision. He invented the binary system & the Book Indexing System used by Library Science. He also wrote an imperial history of the House of Hannover-Brunswick stretching all the way back to Charlemagne. Leibniz is credited along with Isaac Newton with inventing the infinitesimal calculus in the 1670s. He introduced several notations used in calculus to this day, for instance the integral sign representing an elongated S from the Latin word summa & the d used for differentials from the Latin word differentia.

1725: Industrialized Farming: New agricultural culture based on profit-seeking experiments & improvements. Rational, scientific, capital-intensive agriculture established by Empires. Farmers experimented with larger varieties of cattle, too: there are paintings that show these men posing proudly next to immense bulls, which sometimes weighed 2 tons, much larger than animals today. A good example is Robert Bakewell (1725-95), though his English longhorn is scarcely known today. Consider the paintings of John Constable (1776-1837). In the midst of industrializing England, Constable painted pictures of rustic landscapes untouched by metal & steam. 2 centuries later, these pictures remain hugely influential. – Professor Bret Wallach

You have to remember that actually prime ministers give direction, they tell the chief of the defence staff what they want, but it’s not prime ministers who actually tell a sailor to press a button in the middle of the Atlantic. The armed forces are loyal, & we live in a democracy, but actually their ultimate authority is the Queen. The Chief of Defence Staff is appointed by the monarch.
The Crown in the United Kingdom, is a term used to describe the power & property of the monarch as head of state. [No distinction was made between the monarch as head of state & the monarch as a person until 1707]. In the United Kingdom & in some countries that are members of the Commonwealth of Nations, lands belonging to the state are called Crown lands & are managed by a commissioner appointed by the government. Rents from Crown lands go into the nation’s treasury. The monarch’s personal property does not belong to the Crown, & the monarch may dispose of it or add to it as he or she wishes. The Crown acts on the advice of officials & through officials. When a monarch dies or abdicates, people speak of a demise of the Crown (a passing on of the Crown). Diplomats, government ministers, judges, armed forces officers, & other officials are servants of the Crown.
The powers of the Crown & of Parliament are often similar, & these powers are sometimes connected & used together. The Crown has powers called the royal prerogative. The Crown can take any action necessary to carry out the nation’s laws & to defend the country. The Crown can declare war, make treaties, & appoint diplomats. ...The Crown appoints judges of the Supreme Court (the High Court & the Court of Appeal) & of the crown court, officers of the armed forces, & bishops of the Church of England. The Crown also appoints justices of the peace.
..The Crown decides whether to prosecute people, & it has the power to pardon people who have broken the nation’s laws. It has power to reduce their punishments & to prevent them from punishment. ...At various times, monarchs have issued royal charters to independent societies & organizations to give them certain rights. – World Book Encyclopedia

The Board of Home Missions has informed us that government contracts for educating Indian pupils provide for the ordinary branches of an English education to be taught, & that no books in any Indian language shall be used, or instruction given in that language to Indian pupils. The letter states that this rule will be strictly enforced in all government Indian schools. The Commissioner of Indian Affairs urges, & very forcibly too, that instruction in their vernacular is not only of no use to them but is detrimental to their speedy education & civilization. – Sheldon Jackson, first Commissioner of Education for Alaska, 1888

DeHoMag: Card Tabulating Machine: Herman Hollerith: 1886
DeHoMag: Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen Achtung Gesellshaft founded by Dr. Herman Hollerith (b 1860) as a census tabulating company. Hollerith starts as a 19 year old assistant at the US Census Bureau as part of his education at Columbia University. Part of International Business Machines. The Hollerith name still used in Germany.
1886: The machine uses punch cards and is first used to calculate the dead for the local health departments in Maryland, New York & New Jersey. It is then expanded to cover freight accounting for the New York Central Railroad, actuarial records for Prudential Insurance, & the US Census of 1890.
Between 1890 & 1900 Hollerith leases the machine at $750,000 per customer for the Russian [Czar Nicholas II], Italian, English, French, Austrian & German [Kaiser Wilhelm II] governmental population censuses. In 1910 Hollerith sells to international commodities: arms & weapons producer Charles Flint, The Merchant of Death & Father of Trusts. for 121 million. Flint sells weapons to Chile, Perú, Japan, Russia & bomber airplanes to the Kaiser
1915: Flint merges DeHoMag, International Time Recording Co., Computing Scale Co. & Bundy Manufacturing into IBM: International Business Machines. Thomas J. Wasson [Watson] CEO.
1936: IBM wins the Social Security Act contract from the US Department of Labor
1937: Wasson Chairman of the Carnegie Endowment for Peace, New York University Chair, Federal Reserve Bank Director, Columbia University Trustee. Merit Cross with German Eagle Star from Adolf Hitler at the League of Nations International Chamber of Commerce Meeting in Hamburg.
1940: United States Census, Draft, Pacific, Tunisia, Sicily: IBM MRU: Machine Record Units. Endicott, New York trains 1,300 Allied soldiers. After Pearl Harbor, the United States Census Bureau uses punch-card information to identify people of Japanese Heritage. Executive Order 9066 authorizing internment of Japanese-Americans on the W. coast in Concentration Camps under the WCCA: Wartime Civil Control Association. Evacuations begin in Los Angeles.

The overall dimensions of punched cards used for data processing have remained the same since Herman Hollerith invented the medium: 7 3/8 inches wide by 3 1/4 inches high by .007 inches thick. Prior to 1929, this was a standard size for many US banknotes. Today, these dimensions are set by the EIA standard RS-292 media 1 punched card. This standard is augmented by ANSI X3.21-1967 governing the holes in the card & ANSI X3.26-1980 governing the use of the Hollerith code to encode alphanumeric data on cards. – Edwin Black: IBM & the Holocaust

Urban Indians are often uncounted even in death. When an urban Indian dies, the death certificate rarely lists his or her race correctly, Indian Health Service studies show. California’s urban Indians are unknown, uncountable, an enigma, said Indian Health Service statistician Lorraine McCall. ‘Everybody knows there’s this mystery urban Indian population, but when they go to Congress for funding, they have little hard data. We rarely know who they are, where they are or the status of their health.’ (1997: Sacramento Bee)]

WWII: M.A.D / Game Theory
Nuclear Weapon: Any weapon that gets its destructive power from the transformation of matter in atoms into energy. All are explosive devices: missiles, bombs, artillery shells, mines, torpedoes. Often called nuclear fission weapons [atomic bombs] & thermonuclear fusion weapons [hydrogen bombs]. Fission bombs exploded at Hiroshima & Nagasaki. Thermonuclear bomb exploded by US in Korean War. Dominates military planning of the world’s most powerful nations since WWII. [eg. Russia (Fission: 1949, Thermonuclear: 1955), China (Thermonuclear: 1967), North Korea, Turkey, CERN: Switzerland (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France [Thermonuclear: 1968], Germany [Deutches Atomprogramm], Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, England), Iran, India, Pakistan, Israel, South Africa, Canada, USA)
Strategic nuclear weapons: Launch attack from great distances on targets in an enemy’s homeland. bombs & missiles: SLBM: submarine-launched ballistic missiles (Russia 1955), ICBM: intercontinental ballistic missiles (Russia 1957), cruise missiles-guided missiles, MIRV: Multiple Independently Targetable Reentry Vehicles warheads (USA: 1970: banned under STARTII). ABM: Anti-Ballistic Missiles destroy incoming nuclear missiles
Theater nuclear weapons / Tactical nuclear weapons Within a military theater: a geographic area where conventional warfare taking place. Short-range guided missiles, rockets, artillery shells, nuclear mines & torpedoes. The Soviet Union countered NATO’s threat by issuing a statement that any use of nuclear weapons against Soviet forces, tactical or otherwise, was grounds for a full-scale Soviet retaliatory strike. It was generally assumed any combat in Europe would end with apocalyptic conclusions.
Nuclear Fission: Matter is changed into energy when the nuclei (cores) of uranium or plutonium atoms split. Chain reaction forms in which each split nucleus provides the means of splitting other nuclei, leading to explosion. Requires a minimum mass of fissionable material known as the critical mass. A mass too small is subcritical mass.
Nuclear Fusion: Matter is changed into energy when pairs of hydrogen nuclei combine. Requires sun’s temperature achieved by nuclear fission. Lithium 6 deuteride forms helium & tritium that fuse with explosive energy when struck by neutrons.
Particle Beam Weapon / Particle Accelerator / Teleforce / Atom Smasher / Cyclotron / Death Ray: Nikola Tesla: The Art of Projecting Concentrated Non-dispersive Energy through the Natural Media: Bombards stable, nonradioactive atoms with beams of high-speed particles. Collisions produce new radioactive atoms. In videogames Blood II: The Chosen & Fallout: Tesla’s proposal of a teleforce weapon & Command &t Conquer Red Alert the destructive possibilities of massive electric arcs created by Tesla coils.
First Strike: Initial nuclear attack. 100,000+ killed immediately in Hiroshima’s flat terrain. 40,000 + killed in Nagasaki’s hilly terrain.
Ground Zero: The point on the ground directly below an explosion.
Shock Wave / Blast Wave: Fireball of dust & gases expands to form a wave which moves rapidly away from the fireball. 400 mph winds move 12 miles 50 seconds after explosion; destroying buildings & killing most everyone within a 6 mile radius.
Flash Burns / Radiation Burns: 30% Hiroshima & Nagasaki deaths. 10 second thermal radiation ignites newspapers & dry leaves & chars wood. Blistering 2nd degree burns in exposed human skin up to 11 miles away.
Mushroom Cloud: Residual nuclear radiation given off >1 minute after the explosion. It strikes particles of rock, soil, water, & other materials making them radioactive.
Fallout Radiation: Radioactive particles that fall back to earth. Kills in 1st 24 hours. In 1961 the U.S. Office of Civilian Defense Mobilization began a public fallout shelter program to identify & stock with supplies buildings & underground areas where people would be protected from the fallout particles of a nuclear explosion. Many public shelters set up in the basements of apartment & office buildings, factories, schools or in windowless central areas in buildings aboveground. Federal funding discontinued in the late 1960s
Radiation Sickness: Large doses of ionizing radiation suffered in reactor accidents such as Chernobyl, radioactive product mishandling, & in 1945 bombings of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, Japan. >100 rems: roentgen equivalent in man (=rad: radiation absorbed dose): red & white blood cells damaged. >300 rems: death in several weeks, > 1,000 rems: cells lining digestive tract die & intestinal bacteria invade bloodstream. >3,000 rems: brain injured & death can come within hours. National Council on Radiation Protection & Measurements urges the general public receive no more than 0.5 rem in any year.
Fission Products: New radioactive atoms produced by nuclear fission. Atomic bomb tests in the 1950’s & 1960’s covered the earth with a fission product called cesium 137, a radioactive isotope of cesium.
Activation Products: Form when pipes & other materials in a nuclear reactor absorb radiation, becoming radioactive.
Nuclear Waste: Used fuel from nuclear power plants known as nuclear waste contains many fission products, such as plutonium 239, strontium 90, & barium 140. Used fuel remains radioactive & dangerous for thousands of years.
Nuclear Reactor “It’s harder to get a petition through this process than it is to build a nuclear reactor – said John Bud Shapard, the BIA official who created the tribal recognition process.
Nuclear Winter: Thermal radiation smoke absorbs sunlight to lower temperature of the earth’s surface; resulting in widespread crop failure. – George W. S. Kuhn, J.D., Research Fellow, Logistics Management Institute.

The Manhatten Project

Hanford Nuclear Power Plant: Richland, Columbia River Basin, SE Washington: The Hanford nuclear site produced plutonium for the atomic bomb [22 kiloton] dropped on Nagasaki [Aug 9, 1945], & today the area is the focus of the largest environmental cleanup in history. It is a landscape of incredible contradictions. Coyotes roam among decommissioned nuclear reactors, salmon spawn in the middle of golf courses, wine grapes grow in the sagebrush & federal cleanup dollars spur rapid urban expansion. Arid Lands takes us into a world of sports fishermen, tattoo artists, housing developers, ecologists & radiation scientists living & working in the area. It tells the story of how people changed the landscape over time, & how the landscape affected their lives

John Von Neumann (1903-1957): The Theory of Games & Economic Behavior 1944 with Oskar Morgenstern. His principal contribution to the atomic bomb was in the concept & design of the explosive lenses needed to compress the plutonium core of the Trinity test device & the Fat Man weapon dropped on Nagasaki. Von Neumann oversaw computations related to the expected size of the bomb blasts, estimated death tolls, & the distance above the ground at which the bombs should be detonated for optimum shock wave propagation & maximum effect. Von Neumann & Klaus Fuchs: Improvement in Methods & Means for Utilizing Nuclear Energy, using a fission bomb to compress fusion fuel to initiate a thermonuclear reaction. (Herken, pp. 171, 374). As President of the Von Neumann Committee for Missiles he developed scenarios of nuclear proliferation, development of intercontinental & submarine missiles with atomic warheads, & the controversial strategic equilibrium called mutual assured destruction (a.k.a the M.A.D. doctrine). Von Neumann proposed spreading colorants on the polar ice caps in order to enhance absorption of solar radiation, thereby raising global temperatures. von Neumann was diagnosed with cancer, possibly caused by exposure to radiation during his witnessing of atomic bomb tests & died under military security

Arthur Holly Compton (1892-1962): Compton Effect: Light & radiation composed of tiny particles of energy known as photons or quanta: confirmed by Charles Wilson with his cloud chamber that made the paths of the particles visible. Directed University of Chicago’s Metallurgical Laboratory: The Manhatten Project. His book Atomic Quest: A Personal Narrative 1956 gives an account of his involvement with the bomb.

J. Robert Oppenheimer ‘Father of the Atomic Bomb’ (1904-1967): Los Alamos Nuclear Power Plant, New Mexico: Site X of The Manhatten Project: Trinity test where Oppenheimer’s Los Alamos team 1st tested the bomb, Robert Oppenheimer recalled the Bhagavad Gita: If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one. Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds. Oppenheimer diagnosed with throat cancer, radiation treatment by cobalt gamma rays, then chemotherapy. These were not curative, tumor spread to his palate affecting his swallowing, hearing & breathing. Dead by 1967.

Whites had wiped out the buffalo herds, leaving the Indians without their chief source of food. The government killed Sitting Bull & his son at Standing Rock Reservation. “The religion centered on a ceremony called the ghost dance, which differed somewhat from 1 tribe to another. Among Western Sioux in 1890, believers danced around a pole or tree decorated with sacred objects. The dancers wore special clothing called ghost shirts, which were painted with sacred symbols, including moons, stars, & eagles. The Sioux believed the shirts would protect them from enemy bullets. Some dancers fell into trances & saw visions of the promised world. The Ghost Dance religion was nonviolent, but U.S. Army leaders feared it would lead to an uprising by Sioux Indians in what is now South Dakota. The dance was largely abandoned by the Sioux after the U.S. Army massacred Sioux followers of the religion in 1890 at Wounded Knee Creek in South Dakota. The dance declined among other tribes when its promises were never fulfilled’. - Jerome A. Greene, M.A., Historian, National Park Service: World Book Encyclopedia
