So many people don't understand how quickly population growth can change their way of life.
And fewer are the people who understand how quickly population growth liberalizes thinking: In a world of shortages, people must share and ration to get along, and they must turn to government to referee the countless conflicts that come with crowding.
Conflicts like who can own a firearm or who can smoke a cigarette where.
It is Sad what is happening to America's Open Spaces. I'll never understand the wacky notion that economic growth and prosperity rests with an ever-greater number of warm bodies in the country. Do we want to be like China or India? It's like the Open Border Cabal believe that capitalism can only work if there is a population explosion. Tell that to Switzerland! We as a nation won't know what we have lost until we have totally lost it.
The greatest luxury is the enjoyment of freedom--not the enjoyment of consumer products produced by a society teeming with smokestacks where hordes of people live in human anthills.
Like New Jersey, whose population density surpasses that of India or Japan; good old liberal New Jersey.
Nothing--not Bach, not Rembrandt--no art, architecture, or music can substitute for the sights and sounds and smells and touch and taste of nature.
This is one of the reasons why I see conservatism in America dying. As the population growth in America rises exponentially and well past our ability to manage in an orderly fashion more government will be looked upon by the masses to solve the problems you mention that come with overpopulation. In 1965 America had roughly half of today's population and it's interesting to note that Both Political Parties were MUCH MORE Conservative than they are today. At some point the house of cards we have built for ourselves will come tumbling down.
