    I just love this part....

    "Instead of asking questions like, 'Are we too many?' we should instead be asking, 'What can I do to make our world better?' " he wrote in the annual State of the World Population report.
    one would have to answer with another quote from an old play....

    -If they would rather die,' said Scrooge, 'they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population. -Scrooge

    I find it odd that the part of the world that is supposedly the most sexually and maritally strict, and which blames the "west" for all the immoral ills of the world, is the place where people are cranking out babies like jelly beans.

    They're also way older than we are, as a civilization. When Rome was in its infancy, China and India were thriving polities already.

    Population through increasing migration, as well as birthing has always been an effective way to take over lands.
