By Bernard Lehrer, Attorney-at-law

With apologies to strict Catholics and others who are against birth control and abortion:

Earth warming, droughts, hunger, water shortages, starvation, wars, crimes, genocide, flooding, deforestation, species extinction, smog, poisonous atmosphere, disease, fires, homelessness, juvenile pregnancy, children having children, infant abandonment and murder and many more of man’s plagues have one common cause: OVERPOPULATION.

But because religion has sensitized the world leaders to this subject, it is never mentioned. Instead we go about trying to fix all the other problems separately, and in doing so, we only exacerbate the root cause. It makes it easier for all, whether capable of dealing with the responsibility or not, to propagate and, therefore, accelerate the end of our civilization. It is a self-fulfilling prophesy.

Malthus was right. There is no way to stop it or even slow it down. This is not something that will happen in the future; it is happening right now! # # #
