Food was hard to get, and there was almost no surplus of it to allow any activity other than looking for food. Cheap fossil fuels and new technologies have made food abundant. This is the most bounteous time for a human to be alive, in all of our species’ history. The population of the planet has responded by compounding away as fast as some parts of it can breed. …

In fact traffic deaths kill as many Afghanis each year as the ongoing war does. At its current growth rate, the country’s population is doubling every 24 years. Within its own borders Afghanistan might be able to grow enough food to feed perhaps 15 million people.

Egypt lost the ability to feed itself from its own efforts decades ago, but the number of Egyptians is still bounding away. In fact the frisson of changes of government associated with the Muslim Brotherhood seems to have produced a spike in Egyptian fertility. …

[The globalists] are concerned that the spectacle of mass starvation will take the public’s attention away from make-believe problems such as global warming to real concerns about their own security. Immigration will be seen to be the very bad thing that it really is …
