Servant of Nine is a stand up kinda guy.
That being said he does extend into hyperbole.
The human population of the earth will not grow to infinity. It can't. There isn't enough 'there' there for that.
How large is a sustainable population level is an excercise left to the reader. Swervie's happy with a billion. I think it's about right now. How many are you happy with, hmmm?
How it is achieved is either left to forces beyond our control, such as starvation, major natural plagues, or some other yet undiscoverd safety valve, or is left to individual responsibilities, or the global slaughter of a Khan, Stalin, Pot, Hitler, Amin, or Saddam. (See, it's not limited to any specific race, ethnic group, religion, or any political philosophy). Your call...

Left to its own devices, the population, like the free market economy, seeks its own proper level. That's a concept that Ehrlich and London (two sides of the same counterfeit coin) just can't grasp.

Uh-oh, null and void, now you've done it. You have introduced reason and logic into anotherwise hysterical public flogging. I missed all the fireworks and since the offending post were pulled I am unable to decide for myself if I should be outraged. Moreover, since Servant of the Nine has been taken to the woodshed with his posting priviledges temporarily suspended I am unable to read any response he may have made to his detractors. However, I wonder how his opinions could have been any more severe than the reaction posted by swarthyguy.
