As 1968 began, Paul Ehrlich was an entomologist at Stanford University, known to his peers for his groundbreaking studies of the co-evolution of flowering plants and butterflies but almost unknown to the average person. That was about to change. In May, Ehrlich released a quickly written, cheaply bound paperback, The Population Bomb. Initially it was ignored. But over time Ehrlich’s tract would sell millions of copies and turn its author into a celebrity. It would become one of the most influential books of the 20th century—and one of the most heatedly attacked.
[The first sentence set the tone: “The battle to feed all of humanity is over.” And humanity had lost. In the 1970s, the book promised, “hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death.” No matter what people do, “nothing can prevent a substantial increase in the world death rate.

The left found out a long time ago that if you feed your base fear then they live on that and don't think rationally.
Keep them thinking that America was founded illegitimately and and we were never a good country.
Keep impressing on them that we don't have much longer to live because of something we don't have any control over but if they pay enough and give up enough control, the government can fix that.
It keeps the base mad and embarrassed about where they came from and mad and scared about where we are going.
That way the base never lives in the present so can't think things through.
Which is why the left's base is always pissed off and hates everything.
