"No!" To The Neo-Malthusians

From time to time we get angry posters here at the Rumbler Report screaming about population growth and how we are all going to die because some of us believe in the right to life. "You believe in magic," they scream, "we are running out of resources and we have to regulate who gets to have children!" They are living up to Thomas Malthus's famous quote: "Life is dull, dreary and short." Sad existence really...well this ought to cheer them up. Brendan O'Neill over at Spiked.com has penned a short piece that refutes the neo-Malthusian argument succinctly: "Too Many People? No, Too Many Neo-Malthusians." Enjoy the read and live a little!
