The Myth of Overpopulation

We are living in a culture of death.  Elements of our society have sanitized the practice of abortion in the acid wash of the ruling gang to become the exercise of “reproductive rights.”  Euthanasia is working its will into state legislatures to become allowable, acceptable or (at the very least) not prohibited in the states of Oregon, Washington, Virginia, North Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming.

Earlier in history, entire populations of minority groups were corralled into internment camps, starved to death and left to the elements. (I am not talking about Nazi Germany because those atrocities came later.)

The  crops of the poor Irish farmers were pillaged and sold to affluent groups in England, leaving the Irish poor to farm a one-crop sustenance of potatoes. When the crop was done in by the weather, no aid was given by other countries and the people died. This form of mass starvation was sanctimoniously regarded by Mother Country (England) as a “direct stroke of all-wise and all-merciful Providence. . . as God’s way of redressing an imbalance between population and resources.” (Charles Trevelyan, circa 1846)

All of the overpopulation rhetoric stems from the ideas and quasi-scientific calculations  of an Anglican priest, Thomas Malthus, in (you are not going to believe this) 1798 on population. 

Here is what Malthus, man of god, said about the poor farmers in Ireland:

“The land in Ireland is infinitely more peopled than England; and to give full effect to the natural resources of the country, a great part of the population should be swept from the soil.”

But Malthus was wrong. English greed, prejudice, denial and oppression is what killed the poor Irish farmers because both countries produced enough food to sustain their own populations. But by adapting Malthus’s nonscientific speculation, over one million Irish were starved to death.

Our man Malthus has provided the under-girding of his definition of “population control” that has affected people all over the globe since he first began propagating his unscientific mishmash of bad math and atrocious science. (If you don't believe me, look at the one-child policy in China, which was spawned by Malthusian population nonsense.)

We are NOT living in a society that is going to implode from too many people – ever.  According to the United Nation’s Population Database the world’s population, in 2010, would be 6,908,688,000. However the landmass of the State of Texas is 268,820 square miles or 7,494,271,488,000 square feet.

When you divide 7,494,271,488,000 square feet by 6,908,688,000 people, you come up with 1084.76 square feet per person or a plot of land of  approximately 33 feet by 33 feet per person on Planet Earth. This is enough space for a townhouse.

If you had a four-person family, every family would have a 66' x 66' plot of land, which would comfortably provide a single family home and yard  for everyone. And all of it would fit on a landmass the size of Texas. Of course, it would basically be one massive subdivision, but Texas is a tiny portion of the inhabitable Earth. This arrangement would leave the rest of the world utterly uninhabited.
