    it is also worth noting at this point that an inverse relationship can be drawn between famine and the presence of a free press operating within a representative government.

    with 7 billion people....there are no more "greener pastures" to move on to.

    Not true!!! Australia's deserts aren't inhabited!
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    of course they do, or didn't you get the memo that we are all created equal. if that is the case, the obviously being stupid is a choice. otherwise everyone would be stupid.

    of course not, that is why those people should be prevented from having kids.

    Re: Population Control

    Population control is morally wrong. You are stepping on the human right of reproduction which should not be allowed in a free society.

    and those demographics will remain relative. our poor live better lives than the top 1% of the past, and in the future people will look back on us and consider us dirty and impoverished.

    indeed. I seem to recall something about how in this country the population was supposed to control the government, not the other way 'round.
