Advice to Malthusians

Filed under: Sociology — Tags: , — Ron Toczek @ 2:39 am

I think we all know what a Malthusian is but for the purposes of this post a Malthusian is a person who believes that humankind will overpopulate the earth unless humankind itself limits its own reproduction.  Since the Malthusian, by virtue of being smart enough to invent this idea, is therefore exempt from any proposals on how to lessen the world’s population,  his primary solution is to eliminate the poor, the weak,the crippled and the unborn.  The fallacy in his thinking comes about from his pessimistic attitude about humans–their intelligence doesn’t  match his.  Needless to say, he, himself, is probably responsible for a goodly number of people he would like to eliminate.  So if you happen to come across a Malthusian, you should tell him that he needs to carry out the Traditional Pessimist’s Declaration

The greatest good,

after that of not being born,

is to die as quickly as possible.
