Overpopulation is a myth, perpetrated by the elites, because they want us to ACCEPT measures of STERILIZATION and MASS MURDER, not because they care about the environment, but because the fewer people, the more money the elites can have all to themselves.
However, Malthus plagiarised many of his ideas from Giammaria Ortes, a defrocked Camaldolese monk who first wrote of population control on 1790. Ortes' magic number for maximum human population? 3 billion. Anything more than this and the world would collapse into itself and be destroyed.
I used to believe in overpopulation, that is until I read that the state of California has 36 (almost 37) million people... thats 2 (almost 3) million more people then ALL of Canada, the second biggest country in the world. So I think it's fair to say the world is NOT overpopulated!

This thread is dangerous because not only does it attempt to denigrate an important issue, it tries to suggest that the world is UNDER populated and we need to increase the Global Population!
