It is ironic that the same people calling for forced abortions and sterilants in drinking water in order to control population growth bristle when immigration is brought up.
Which is exactly why I am utterly opposed to any continuation of immigration, considering what has happened since 1965.
These SOB's ran around the country in the late 60's-early 70's screaming "we're all gonna die! overpopulation!".
It was nonsense and they knew it. And they know it now.
Their opposition was to the increase in population of White people, not the new immigrants, which for the first time in American history were overwhelmingly non-White.
This was consistent with their worldview: the Whites were guilty of being the most destructive people on Mama Earth - they consumed the most, destroyed the lives and habitat of all the other "noble and suffering" people of the planet.
So if you could get the Whites of North America and Europe to commit suicide - abortion, small families, contraception - then the Peaceful and Noble Non-Whites would become the dominant population, and the Sun would come out, the birds would sing, and all would be well on Gaia as the neo-Stone Age types reverted to their typical subsistence lifestyles.
No more evil, heartless White guys with their mink stole wrapped women roaring across the landscape in their belching Cadillacs, consuming mass quantities of the Environment as they go.
Holdren is not just a misanthrope. He's an alienated traitor: a misfit with an all consuming hatred for the population he came from. His mission is to kill us and all future generations of us, nothing more.
But of course, not himself. Being a narcissistic coward, he expects to be the last man standing.
So there's nothing ironic about his attitude being contradictory with respect to population control and immigration. He only believes in population control for one group....his own.
