OP ED: Crusade for Fewer People on the Earth Seeks Volunteers - HUMAN EVENTS


On Oct. 31, the United Nations announced the birth of Planet Earth's 7 billionth human.  Later that day, the United Nations admitted that "no one can know the exact number of people on the globe," noting that perhaps the 7 billionth human might be born sometime during the next four months.
In other words:  United Nations demographers pretty much know what they're talking about, give or take about 28 million human beings.
Many human beings take these bureaucratic pronouncements as gospel (ironically, while ignoring the actual Gospel, which instructs humanity to "be fruitful and multiply.")  Like the 73 members of the U.S. Congress who signed a letter on Dec. 10, 2009, urging the White House to spend $1 billion on "slowing the [human] population's rapid growth."  Or the "one in four Britons [who] would like to see the [human] population reduced by up to a third."  Or Prince Philip, past president of the World Wildlife Fund, who said, "If I were to be reincarnated, I would wish to be returned to the Earth as a killer virus, to lower human population levels."  Or the Sierra Club's first executive director, the late David Brower, who said, "Childbearing [should be] a punishable crime against society."  Or President Obama's so-called "Science Czar" John Holdren, who co-wrote a book that discussed "a Planetary regime" to reduce the number of human beings, including "compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion," "involuntary fertility control," a "program of sterilizing women after their second or third child" and "adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods."
