"What to do, when a ship carrying a hundred passengers suddenly capsizes and only one lifeboat? When the lifeboat is full, those who hate life will try to load it with more people and sink the lot. Those who love and respect life will take the ship's axe and sever the extra hands that cling to the sides of the boat."
Think about that! Those of you who support exponential population growth are actually the ones acting contrary to the interests of life.
This could've been and probably was orchestrated by a handful of people in charge(probably the same ones who will want to depopulate you) not a result of population growth.
My favourite example is the depopulation of wolves in much of Europe and North America simply because man didn't feel 'comfortable' sharing land and resource.
As I mentioned earlier, pro-environmental and humanitarian science has been suppressed and shelved by the powers that be. These powers(governments, corporations, wealthy families) are in large part the ones responsible for the trashing of our planet - And now these same powers are blaming the mess they have created on the population. How can anyone fall for this BS. Now their solution is depopulation and thats what they are trying to brain wash you into believing. Don't be fooled.
Are you mad? Our last 50-100 years of 'science' amounts to little more than industry and pollution itself.
When will we learn that we can't control nature, our science can't control nature, and nor should it attempt to.
China is more enlightened than the west in their 1-child policy.
"They wanted her dead," said Qu Rei, a spokesman at Richland International Hospital in Yunnan province, which has agreed to surgically remove the first six of the 26 needles in her body today. "The fact she is still alive is a medical miracle."
Female infanticide is common practice in cultures that prize boys. China's strict one-child policy has exacerbated the age-old prejudice by making the male heir an even more precious commodity. Lopsided sex selection through such means as abortions has skewed the gender ratio; it now stands at about 119 boys to 100 girls. In industrialized countries the balance is closer to 107 to 100.Thousands of baby girls are abandoned every year. Some are left on the street or even in the trash.

Malthus disciples believed if Western civilization were to survive, the physically unfit, the materially poor, the spiritually diseased, the racially inferior, and the mentally incompetent had to be suppressed and isolated–or even, perhaps, eliminated. His disciples felt the subtler and more "scientific" approaches of education, contraception, sterilization and abortion were more "practical and acceptable ways" to ease the pressures of the alleged overpopulation.
Sanger embraced Malthusian eugenics. Thomas Robert Malthus, a 19th century cleric and professor of political economy, believed a population time bomb threatened the existence of the human race. He viewed social problems such as poverty, deprivation and hunger as evidence of this "population crisis." According to writer George Grant, Malthus condemned charities and other forms of benevolence, because he believed they only exacerbated the problems. His answer was to restrict population growth of certain groups of people. His theories of population growth and economic stability became the basis for national and international social policy. Grant quotes from Malthus’ magnum opus, An Essay on the Principle of Population, published in six editions from 1798 to 1826:

At any rate, nature does have a way of balancing itself as well and there are many countries now where population is already declining - what's the rush?
