North Korea says U.S. created the Ebola outbreak. A North Korean flag flutters in the propaganda village of Gijungdong as seen from a South Korean military check point of the truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone dividing the two Koreas on November 12, 2014.

Borders were closed to tourists, and any arrivals to the country were forced into a 21-day mandatory quarantine; the few North Korean citizens who were allowed to leave had that privilege rescinded. Now, North Korea may have revealed the logic behind the panic: Top Pyongyang officials appear to believe that this Ebola outbreak began as a biological weapon created by the United States. Boyle, a law professor, has said that he believes the latest strain of Ebola is man-made and must have escaped from a U.S. Genetic use restriction technology. Genetic use restriction technology (GURT), colloquially known as terminator technology or suicide seeds, is the name given to proposed methods for restricting the use of genetically modified plants by causing second generation seeds to be sterile.
The technology was developed under a cooperative research and development agreement between the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture and Delta and Pine Land company in the 1990s, but it is not yet commercially available. The technology was discussed during the 8th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity in Curitiba, Brazil, March 20–31, 2006. Variants There are conceptually two types of GURT: Opposition Possible advantages Where effective intellectual monopoly, specifically biological patents, doesn't exist or is not enforced, GURTs could be an alternative to stimulate plant developing activities by biotech firms.

Genocide. Raphael Lemkin, in his work Axis Rule in Occupied Europe (1944), coined the term "genocide" by combining Greek genos (γένος; race, people) and Latin cīdere (to kill). Lemkin defined genocide as follows: "Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation.
The Holocaust. The Holocaust (from the Greek ὁλόκαυστος holókaustos: hólos, "whole" and kaustós, "burnt") also known as Shoah (Hebrew: השואה, HaShoah, "the catastrophe"; Yiddish: חורבן, Churben or Hurban, from the Hebrew for "destruction"), was the mass murder or genocide of approximately six million Jews during World War II, a programme of systematic state-sponsored murder by Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, throughout the German Reich and German-occupied territories. Of the nine million Jews who had resided in Europe before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds were killed. Over one million Jewish children were killed in the Holocaust, as were approximately two million Jewish women and three million Jewish men. A network of over 40,000 facilities in Germany and German-occupied territory were used to concentrate, hold, and kill Jews and other victims. The persecution and genocide were carried out in stages.
Toxification. Toxification is the conversion of chemical compounds into more toxic forms.
This conversion can take place in the body as well as in substrates such as soil or water. The conversion can be caused by enzymatic metabolism in the body or in microorganisms as well as by abiotic chemical reaction. This concept is related to prodrugs, which are inactive drugs which become activated in the body. Examples of toxification include: One-child policy. The one-child policy, officially the family planning policy, is the population control policy of the People's Republic of China.
Many demographers consider the term, "one-child" policy a misnomer, as the policy allows many exceptions: rural families can have a second child if the first child is a girl or is disabled, and ethnic minorities are exempt. Families in which neither parent has siblings are also allowed to have two children. Residents of the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau, and foreigners living in China are also exempt from the policy.
In 2007, approximately 35.9% of China's population was subject to a one-child restriction. In November 2013, the Chinese government announced that it would further relax the policy by allowing families to have two children if one of the parents is an only child. Population Matters. Population Matters, formerly known as the Optimum Population Trust, is a registered United Kingdom charity, think tank, and campaign group concerned with the impact of population growth on long term sustainability, quality of life and the natural environment, specifically natural resources, climate change, and biodiversity.
Population Matters researches climate change, energy requirements, biodiversity, and other environmental factors in relation to population numbers. It campaigns for population stabilisation and gradual decrease to sustainable levels for both the world and the United Kingdom. In 2009, the organisation issued a study asserting that contraception was the cheapest way of combating climate change.  The trust states that its intermediate aims are: improved provision of family planning and sex education, better education and rights for women, and that couples voluntarily "have two or fewer".
Population reduction conspiracy theory. The Population reduction theory is a conspiracy theory which states that there is a plan to depopulate the world through genocide following the basic thesis of National Security Study Memorandum 200.
Overpopulation Many officials say that they believe the world is overpopulated. Numbers given of an "ideal" world population include 500 million (nearly a 93% reduction from current population) and 2 billion (a 70% reduction in current population), while other estimates have put the carrying capacity as high as 40 billion assuming absolute minimum consumption levels. In 2009 a policy think tank in England, Population Matters, (formerly known as the Optimum Population Trust), released a detailed spreadsheet which established preferred population limits in a number of nations across the globe.
The Georgia Guidestones. “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.”
It screams out from the top of each of the eight faces of the Georgia Guidestones, begging to be interpreted by those who gaze upon them. Some believe that the Guidestones and their builders represent a philosophy of eugenics, or worse, genocide. With a population of 6 billion, how can humanity hope to reduce its numbers down to the 500,000,000 that R.C. Christian describes? Is this first precept written for the survivors of an accidental catastrophe or an intentional one? Other guidelines mention guiding reproduction wisely and not being a cancer on the earth.
