The ‘OVERPOPULATION’ Myth

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on August 7, 2011


Actually the current world population of 6 billion is not that big, and there is plenty of food in the world today. Production of cereals (wheat, rice, millet etc) last year reached 1799.2 million tons, enough to offer everyone in the world well over the recommended minimum of 2.500 calories per adult per day. And that is before you’ve even begun to count the calories in vegetables, nuts, pulses, root crops and grass-fed (as opposed to grain-fed) meat.

So what’s the problem?

The problem is the distribution of that food, both within countries and between rich and poor worlds. People in the developed nations eat much more than they need.

Americans represent only six per cent of the world’s population, yet they consume 35 per cent of the world’s resources – the same as the entire developing world. So is the real world population problem that there are too many Americans?

Population Control

The rationale for population control has been the myth of overpopulation said to strain the world’s resources. This idea fIrst become famous with the British clergyman Thomas Malthus (1 766-1834j. (~) He theorized that population tends to increase faster than food supply, with disastrous results unless the increase in population can be checked. He predicted that by 1880 life on earth would be characterized by chaos, violence and mass starvation. He was wrong, and somewhat changed his views in his later years. However,(*) Malthusianism influenced Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, and modern population controllers, including those in the US. government today.

The facts are that per capita food. Output between 1950 and 1977 increased by about one third, and world food output has continued to match or outstrip population growth since 1977. Some of the most dramatic increases have occurred in the poorest countries, like India, which can now feed itself. As to other materials needed for mankind’s sustenance, the best informed experts in the field agree that we will not run out of anything essential to the industrial process. (*) As Jacqueline Kasun puts it in her thoroughly researched 1988 book The War Against Population: The Economics and Ideology of Population Control, “The message is clear, The boat [“Lifeboat Earth”] is extremely well stocked” (p41). Princeton professor Julian Simon fully agrees, and he sees in the population itself “our ultimate resource” (The Ultimate Resource [Princeton University Press, 1981]).[~) John Clark of Oxford University and one of the world’s most prominent authorities on world food supply and population, showed already in 1970 that at the very high American-type food consumption standards and “the general use of agricultural methods already practiced by the average farmer in the Netherlands” 35.1 billion people could be fed (Starvation or Plenty? [New York: Taplinger, 1970], pp.157,160). Many other similar well-documented studies have been available for years.

Today’s population explosion propaganda is a smokescreen to scare people into accepting a one-world government exercising world-wide collectivi’st-totalitarian population control.

In 1977 book, John Holdren, Presidant Obama’s science advisor, advocated forced abortions, mass sterilization through food and water supply and mandatory bodily implants to prevent pregnancies

Ecoscience discusses a number of ways in which the global population could be reduced to combat what the authors see as mankind’s greatest threat – overpopulation. In each case, the proposals are couched in sober academic rhetoric, but the horrifying foundation of what Holdren and his co-authors are advocating is clear. These proposals include;

– Forcibly and unknowingly sterilizing the entire population by adding infertility drugs to the nation’s water and food supply.

– Legalizing “compulsory abortions,” ie forced abortions carried out against the will of the pregnant women, as is common place in Communist China where women who have already had one child and refuse to abort the second are kidnapped off the street by the authorities before a procedure is carried out to forcibly abort the baby.

– Babies who are born out of wedlock or to teenage mothers to be forcibly taken away from their mother by the government and put up for adoption. Another proposed measure would force single mothers to demonstrate to the government that they can care for the child, effectively introducing licensing to have children.

– Implementing a system of “involuntary birth control,” where both men and women would be mandated to have an infertility device implanted into their body at puberty and only have it removed temporarily if they received permission from the government to have a baby.

– Permanently sterilizing people who the authorities deem have already had too many children or who have contributed to “general social deterioration”.

– Formally passing a law that criminalizes having more than two children, similar to the one child policy in Communist China.

– This would all be overseen by a transnational and centralized “planetary regime” that would utilize a “global police force” to enforce the measures outlined above. The “planetary regime” would also have the power to determine population levels for every country in the world.

So who could probably be behind the conspiracy to drastically reduce the world population? Who are the main plotters?

Many shadowy organizations/groups have been named including the Illuminati and a secret council of world bankers (it would certainly be highly in the interest of the super-wealthy to have a far smaller world population represented by just one world government), and others. It is hard to prove for now the involvement of the aforementioned groups or others in this. But we must be sure that the real architect of population control is none other than Satan the Devil who has deceived millions into believing that he does not even exist! We need to understand that just as God is the Creator, Satan constantly seeks to destroy the human creation in any way that he can.

In sum, neither birth control, abortion or euthanasia, much less population control by national or world government, are acceptable Christian solutions to social problems. We must rather address our problems in dependence upon and obedience to our Lord Who commanded man at man’s creation to “be fruitful and increase in number: fill the earth and subdue it” (Gen.1:28).

Western Powers Pressure Needy Nations to Accept Abortion, Homosexuality

Would they demand the same from Saudi Arabia? No, of course not!

Western nations are using their financial power, and their clout at the UN, to pressure less nations to accept legal abortion and homosexuality, the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (C-Fam) reports.

The US rescinded grants of $350 million in badly-needed aid to Malawi because the African country imposed new criminal restrictions on homosexual acts.

Aid Money to Malawi Dependent on Complicity in Gay Rights Agenda

A UN human-rights review process has been used to put pressure on El Salvador, Costa Rica, Chile, Brazil, Bolivia, Belize, and Argentina to ease legal restrictions on abortion and contraception—although nothing in international treaties suggests that these should be treated as human-rights issues.

One Response to “The ‘OVERPOPULATION’ Myth”

  1. Joseph Biddulph said

    Absolutely! No one can define “overpopulation” without stating what an optimum population ought to be: the “classical” definition seems to be “more people than now” – I doubt in many cases if there is even accurate data available to know how many people are alive, and where. A correspondent to a newspaper here in Wales really seemed to think that this country is overcrowded – obviously he’s never been lost in one of our extensive wilderness areas! (He admitted than he had “an acre or two” of land when he phoned me in high dudgeon because I dared to question his theory.) Those really convinced that the world is full might consider the suicide solution! – but, it seems, by definition, “population” is always somebody else – probably poor, or with a dark complexion?
