On the myth of overpopulation

Where it came from

What the myth is

What the real problem is

The truth is that “overpopulation” is merely a myth. The population bomb was just a fairy tale. Aldus Huxley was wrong. The sky is not falling and the government does not need to take any drastic measures. However overpopulation continues to be a popular myth. Why? Because it often fits and in hand with social and enviromental agendas which require some sort of emergency to encourage people to want to undergo drastic social and political change.

The REAL problem, however, is under-population, broken families, poverty, etc. caused by poor social programs and solutions.

Bonus: What did John Lennon think about over-population?

  2. Awesome, Wes! Thanks for pointing these out.

  3. I find in reading those sites that say that population problems are a myth that their evidence is very sparse and inconclusive. Recently I read Book 1 of the free e-book series "In Search of Utopia" (http://andgulliverreturns.info), it blasts their lack of evidence relative to their calling overpopulation a myth. The book, actually the last half of the book, takes on the skeptics in global warming, overpopulation, lack of fresh water, lack of food, and other areas where people deny the evidence. I strongly suggest that anyone wanting to see the whole picture read the book, at least the last half.
    The outdated fertility replacement rate of 2.1 is also clarified.
