Why Malthus is still wrong(not)

 https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/why-malthus-is-still-wrong/

This article show how politics trumps science and any rational thought. People with a misguided political agenda will lie and misrepresent to prove to themselves what they already believe. Same as religion.

 We've solved the problem of homeless dogs through mandatory birth control. Our superior brains led us to the conclusion that we must mandate birth control for dogs if we don't want to see a massive number of them suffer. But then he advocate doing nothing about all the problems of human overpopulation. Deer do nothing about their overpopulation problem and suffer, humans do nothing about our overpopulation and suffer. Seems we are the same to me. We are thinking beings that take no action, what good is our larger brain? Seems by taking no action, we'll have the same fate as deer with disease, starvation and guns limiting our growth.

Countries with the highest food security have the lowest fertility rates because the two go hand in hand. You can't never have food security if there is a never ending stream of more mouths to feed. You can't build a dam while the river is flooded.

China, Cuba and Venezula all experimented with the socialist agenda the author proposes. How is China the failure??? Everything you buy is made in China, they pulled themselves out of mass starvation and poverty. The other two are third world basketcases. A country that owns our ass is the failure??? WTF

If you want all countries on earth to become like socialist Scandanavian model, why not enforce rule that all countries must have a similar birth rate? And no immigration from countries with high birth rates.

 

 

Taxation is the price we pay for failing to build a civilized society. The higher the tax level, the greater the failure. A centrally planned totalitarian state represents a complete defeat for the civilized world, while a totally voluntary society represents its ultimate success. --Mark Skousen
