Most of the developed nations are experiencing declines in birth rates to below replacement levels. The United States is the exception due to it allowing high rates of legal and illegal immigration. One might conclude the developed nations are not the population threat.
The underdeveloped nations are the problem. We have provided them with medical care and sanitation practices that permit dramatic increases in lifespan but, unlike developed nations, their populations are sustaining high birth rates. If overpopulation is a legitimate concern, the left should consider pulling all foreign aid (food and medical) from underdeveloped countries. The result will be an increase in death rates from disease and starvation, resulting in the lower population levels desired by the left. Without the external infusion of resources from developed countries nature will ensure the population drops to the level the resources of the nation can support.
Unfortunately for those who are middle age and older living in developing countries the real agenda of the left is to reduce populations in developed countries through denial of medical care and compulsory euthanasia for the “unproductive” older citizens of developed countries. An added benefit for the progressives of such a policy is ability to redistribute the wealth left behind by the deceased to the deserving masses in underdeveloped nations.
The drumbeat to soften up our children to accept death panels and euthanasia for the aged is beginning. Obamacare puts in place the mechanisms to accomplish the result once society is conditioned to accept the behavior in the same way it has been conditioned to accept the loosening of marriage vows, homosexuality, on demand abortion, politically correct speech and thought, large populations of low skill undocumented residents, government intrusion in every facet of life, the absence of personal accountably, and lower standards of performance in academics and the workplace. Within 10-15 years, it will be accepted that beyond a certain age, say 70 or 75 all but the elites have the obligation to submit to euthanasia in order to free up resources for the next generation. Of course the ruling class elites will not be expected to submit to this requirement because of their special contributions to society.

The United States will only be a matter of time before becoming officially in decline due to the fact that the fertility rates all over the Americas are dropping, (i.e. all areas easy to immigrate into the United States from are dropping, and removing the motivation to immigrate)
As for the left, they are only really interested in having a reliable voting constituency for whatever it is they do, hence why they support illegal immigration.
