Imprisoning truth: Censorship and the corruption of science

By Keven Galalae

(INTELLIHUB) — After four years of trials and tribulations, six arrests, ten months in foreign exile and one year behind bars, I released “Killing Us Softly: Causes and Consequences of the Global Depopulation Policy” in September 2013 and in one clean swoop brought to light the deepest and darkest secrets of the international order.

My book has become the world’s most censored for the obvious reason that it threatens the very foundation on which global security has rested since the end of World War II and augurs the dissolution of the United Nations and of America’s hegemony.  If its contents were to come under the searing scrutiny of the global media and become public knowledge too soon and too fast, the world could be engulfed in violence and within days nearly every government on earth would fall by the hands of their own enraged citizens.

Aware of this danger, the international community is working hand in glove to prevent the dissemination of my book in the vain hope that the truth can be buried again and the grand project of globalization and depopulation, for one is inseparable from the other, can continue unabated and by the same methods, as it has since 1945.

It is not my intention to discuss either the contents of this devastating book or the consequences of its publication, which is scheduled to take place in the next three months, an event already announced by Progressive Press.  The purpose of this article is to show how vital research is censored from academia and how scientific publications, databases and libraries are purged of any material that exposes inconvenient truths, even when life and limb are at stake for billions of people and the advance of science as well as social progress are stalled.

Although Killing Us Softly has been circulating online free of cost for the past six months, it is housed by half a dozen websites, is available for purchase on Scribd, and has the unique distinction of being distributed by The Pirate Bay as a torrent file for download via peer-to-peer networks (a copyright infringement that I fully support and for which I am grateful to the owners of this otherwise vilified website), it has been rendered largely invisible to search engines by the global censorship apparatus.

How this is accomplished is something Edward Snowden might be able to shed light on.  What I can show here and now, through material evidence, is the underhanded methods by which the authorities, with the help of unscrupulous and self-serving individuals, are attempting to suppress this lifesaving book from scientific databases, libraries, and online repositories of scholarly research.

On 20 December 2013, I submitted my book to the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) and, as expected, given its scientific value, it was accepted into the database two days later.

SSRN “is a multi-disciplinary online repository of scholarly research and related materials” and is devoted, in Wikipedia’s words, “to the rapid dissemination of scholarly research in the social sciences and humanities”.

Needless to say, I was pleased and announced this event the next day on LinkedIn and Facebook.

 

I am pleased to announce that my book, “Killing Us Softly: Causes and Consequences of the Global Depopulation Policy” has been accepted by the Social Sciences Research Network (SSRN). This is academic confirmation of the validity of my research and should dispel any lingering doubts that we are not being poisoned by our freely elected governments.http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2370409

 

On 28 December, SSRN emailed me the following notice:

 

Your paper, “KILLING US SOFTLY: CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF THE GLOBAL DEPOPULATION POLICY”, was recently listed on SSRN’s Top Ten download list for: PSN: Population & Family Planning (Topic).

Sincerely,


Michael C. Jensen
Chairman
Social Science Research Network

 

Given the importance of my book, I was not at all surprised that it shot to the top ten list in less than a week.  My enthusiasm however was not shared in the corridors of power.  The censors panicked and must have leaned heavily on SSRN, which is a privately owned company, to withdraw my book from public viewing.  SSRN complied and on 7 January 2014 emailed me the following note:

 

SSRN System at SSRN has added the following comment to your submission, Killing Us Softly: Causes and Consequences of the Global Depopulation Policy (Abstract ID 2370409):

 

We have recently reviewed this submission to SSRN. Unfortunately, our staff erred in accepting your submission for SSRN’s public eLibrary. We have accepted your paper to appear in the Private Paper section of your MyPapers page, which is where submissions that are not scholarly research papers (including opinion, advocacy, satirical and summary book review papers) are accepted as per SSRN policy. You may post or share the URL with others.

 

Thank you,
SSRN Management

 

Despite being robbed of scholarly status my book continued to receive the attention it deserves from the academic community, which enraged the censors who, once again, leaned on SSRN to set the stage for my book’s removal from the database.  To this effect, SSRN sent me the following email on 16 January 2014:

 

SSRN System at SSRN has added the following comment to your submission, Killing Us Softly: Causes and Consequences of the Global Depopulation Policy (Abstract ID 2370409):

It has come to SSRN’s attention that you are using the posting of this paper on SSRN as proof of its scholarly status. SSRN has judged your paper to be non-scholarly. A note has been added to this effect on the abstract page of your paper and your access to revise the submission has been restricted. If this solution is unacceptable to you, please email support@ssrn.com to request that SSRN remove your submission from the SSRN site.

 

Thank you,
SSRN Management

 

Realizing that the censors are attempting to precipitate a disagreement in order to use it as a pretext to remove my paper from the SSRN database, I ignored the email and SSRN has left it at that.  Last I heard from them was to inform me that my book has been viewed 958 times, which undoubtedly places it at the top of the list in its category.

To SSRN’s credit, my book continues to enjoy a safe haven in their repository, undoubtedly much to the chagrin of the censors at the United Nations and at the US State Department.  Unable to compel SSRN to remove my book, the censors turned for help to the University of Victoria, from which I graduated in 1990.

Out of the blue and without prior notice, my old university sent me the following letter on 3 February 2013:

univ-of-v

Angered by the clumsy attempt of the University of Victoria to intimidate me with legal action on the pretext that I have “wrongly associated myself” with the university, I fired back the following email:

 

To whom it may concern,

 

My Social Science Research Network account makes no claim that I am an employee of the University of Victoria.  It merely indicates that I am an alumnus.  You can commence any action you want.  I look forward to meeting you in court and demanding court costs for attempting to intimidate me so as to suppress vital information with respect to the Global Depopulation Policy.  If the current administrators of the University of Victoria wish to be seen in this light by the global community then you will be doing a great disservice to the reputation of the university and the credibility of your graduates.  At such, it is doubly important for me that I meet your threats with resolve.

 

Sincerely,

 

Kevin Galalae

 

For good measure and to isolate the university’s legal department I also wrote to the President of the University of Victoria, Mr. Jamie Cassels:

 

Dear Mr. Cassels,

 

As President of the University of Victoria, the university from which I graduated, you should be very concerned about the conduct of your legal officers.  Enclosed you will find a letter I received from your legal department threatening me with legal action unless I withdraw my book from the Social Science Research Network and abstain from indicating that I am a graduate of the university.  I am also forwarding you the communication thread I have had with the university thus far (see below). 

 

My book – “Killing Us Softly: Causes and Consequences of the Global Depopulation Policy” – is the world’s most censored book and the most important book written in the past half century.  The letter I received from your university is an underhanded attempt to censor my book from the SSRN website and the fact that the University of Victoria would engage in such a blatant act of censorship against one of its most illustrious graduates is shameless and morally reprehensible.  It is also an illegal act as it runs counter to education law which spells out that universities are to encourage not suppress freedom of thought and speech.

 

More than anything, it shows a complete lack of appreciation for the sacrifices I have made and continue to make for Canada and the world and for the children of the very people who issue legal threats on behalf of the university from which I graduated.  This will shed light on the price I have paid and continue to pay to publish the very book your university seeks to censor:

This is unacceptable and I would have never expected such an act of cowardice and underhandedness from my university.  If your academics and administrators had any wisdom they would be tripping over one another to offer me research grants so I can continue my work on the global depopulation policy; a policy that affects every human being on the planet.  My work has altered and will continue to alter global policy, which is more than any of your professors could ever claim. 

 

I expect an apology without delay.

 

Sincerely,
Kevin Galalae

 

To trace the legal attack against me to its source, I phoned the university’s General Counsel, Mr. Don Barnhardt, who signed the letter and asked him whose orders he followed.  Reluctantly, he conceded that it was the Vice-President Academic and Provost, Ms. Reeta Tremblay, who asked him to threaten me with legal action.  To confirm that this is indeed the case and to ask why Ms. Tremblay would behave in such a manner, I called her office several times on 4 February and left a message asking her to call me.  To this day, she did not return my calls or respond to my email:

 

Ms. Tremblay,

 

Your colleague, Mr. Barnhardt, the general Counsel of the University of Victoria, has informed me that you have asked him to threaten me with legal action, which he has dutifully done (see attachment).  I would like you to confirm that you are indeed the individual who has initiated legal action against me.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Sincerely,

Kevin Galalae

 

 

 

Ms. Tremblay,

 

Further to my previous email, if you are not the one who initiated the legal attack on me, then I would like to know on whose behalf you are acting.

 

Sincerely,
Kevin Galalae

 

While neither the university’s president, Mr. Cassels, nor its provost, Ms. Tremblay, returned my calls or emails, Ms. Tremblay forwarded my emails to Mr. Barnhardt, the university’s legal counsel, who responded as follows on 4 February:

 

Mr. Galalae:

 

The attached email has been forwarded to me for response.

 

As I indicated to you earlier, when it comes to attention of the University of Victoria that an inaccurate statement of an association with UVic exists, as in the case of the SSRN abstract, UVic will seek to correct such inaccuracy.  That is what has occurred in this case and our earlier correspondence clearly describes UVic’s concerns.

 

To be clear, UVic is acting solely in its own behalf in accordance with its ordinary practices, and is not acting on behalf of any other party.

 

Any future communication (via telephone, email or otherwise) on this matter should be directed to me.

On the same day, Mr. Barnhardt also wrote to me on behalf of the president of the university:

 

Mr. Galalae:

 

This is in response to your email messages appended below.

 

To be clear, the University of Victoria has no objection to your identifying yourself as an alumni of the university.  The concern of the university lies with the manner in which you have referenced your association with it on your SSRN abstract.  On the abstract it simply states:

 

Kevin Galalae
University of Victoria

 

This formulation is typically used when the author is in fact employed with or associated with the university.   The misleading effect of this formulation is compounded by your providing the university’s address as your contact address at the bottom of the abstract page.

 

If the abstract page stated Kevin Galalae, B.A. (University of Victoria) and did not use the university address as your contact address, the university would have no objection as that would be understood to mean you are a graduate of the university. 

 

I trust that this clarifies the university’s concerns.

Don

To set the record straight, I responded as follows on 4 February:

 

Mr. Barnhardt,

 

At no time did I give the university’s address or enter it when I filled out the SSRN membership.  I don’t even know the mailing address of the University of Victoria.  This must be an electronic addition that SSRN automatically enters and has nothing to do with me.  You should therefore take this up with the designers of the SSRN website not with me.  I have no control over that.

 

I hope this settles the issue.

 

Regards,

Kevin Galalae

 

Having received no response from either the president of the university or its provost, I sent the following email on 5 February, which I CCed to all parties, including Mr. Cassels, the president of the University of Victoria:

 

Ms. Tremblay and Mr. Barnhardt,

 

Unless I receive a written apology from both of you within 24 hours and the name of the person whose orders you are following expect to find your names in the international media.  Your unscrupulous attempt to censor my book “Killing Us Softly: Causes and Consequences of the Global Depopulation Policy”, which is the only source the people of the world have to know what is being perpetrated on them by their own elected governments and the broader international community, is beyond contempt and violates not only the most common code of decency but also the public’s right to know, my freedom of conscience and expressional rights, education law, and a dozen articles of the UN Convention.

 

As administrators of a university you should know better.  That you do not seem to know better will become evident when you wake up to a public relations nightmare that will stain UVic’s reputation for decades to come and will undoubtedly cost you your jobs.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Sincerely,
Kevin Galalae

 

To date, I have received no apology and no response.  Mr. Cassels, Ms. Tremblay and Mr. Barnhardt have chosen to protect the person and organization that asked the university to threaten me with legal action in the hope that I would withdraw my book from the SSRN website.

That is how the Global Depopulation Policy and the crimes against humanity it engenders have been concealed for the past seven decades and why until I came to the world stage no one has dared to whisper the truth.
