The Overpopulation Myth: Pseudo-Scientific Call For State Control Over All Human Life

The surface of our planet is made up of 70% water and 30% land. In total, the Earth contains approximately 57.47 million square miles of land. Of this, 20% is covered in snow, 20% is mountainous, 20% is dry land, 30% is fertile, and 10% has no topsoil:

Using the  above figures, I calculate that there are currently about 17.241 million square miles of fertile land on our planet– which translates as roughly 11.034 billion acres of food-sustaining land.

As of 2008, the world human population on Earth was almost 6.7 billion individuals:

Now, let us go over some hypotheticals, shall we?

If all 6.7 billion individuals on Earth were to evenly distribute, then live upon the roughly 11.034 billion acres of fertile land available on our planet, every single man, woman and child in the world would have approximately 1.647 acres of their very own self-sustaining property to live upon!

And, of course, this still leaves VAST amounts of non-fertile landmass for other projects, such as the use of solar panels, and other technological adventures! And, even aside from the figures above, there are other truths that must be addressed:

28% of Earth’s Land Surface is Woodland:

Now, combine all of the above facts with information from my 2007 article, “Government Report: Bio-Weapons Could Be Used To Combat Overpopulation“:

Interestingly enough, the systematic demonization and criminalization of hemp by the governments of the world has been the ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEANS of projecting the pseudo-scientific Malthusian myth of “overpopulation.”

Overpopulation refers to the exceeding of certain threshold limits of population density when environmental resources fail to meet the requirements of individual organisms regarding shelter, nutrition and so forth. It gives rise to high rates of mortality and morbidity.”
http://stats.oecd.org/glossary/detail.asp?ID=1978

In other words, “overpopulation” should not be confused with “overcrowding” because it is not a condition that is determined by a simple measure of available living space. There are many other environment factors at play, as well. A very easy way to understand “overpopulation” is that it occurs in a system where resources are being consumed by a population faster than they are being restored, or where pollution is being emitted by a population faster than it can filtered.

According to Wiki, “the resources to be considered when evaluating whether an ecological niche is overpopulated include clean water, clean air, food, shelter, warmth, and other resources necessary to sustain life.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overpopulation#Definition

With clean water, clean air and food production understood as the most vital resources considered in determining whether “overpopulation” exists in a particular system of individuals, it is time to place focus on those things that strain these resources. Industrialization, UrbanizationDeforestationand Soil Erosion are the four human practices most destructive to the purity of water, air and food. And, interestingly, the by-far largest contributors to these conditions are cotton and timber industries, along with the sweetheart government policies that keep them all together in business. Combining their efforts, these three soulless entities have worked dilligently to practically completely outlaw HEMP production throughout the entire world in order to create monopolies for themselves within the paper, fabric and wood industries.

These corporations do this with the FULL KNOWLEDGE that HEMP is one of the most durable substances known to man, yeilding a better return rate per pound on cellulose (the main ingredient in paper, natural fabricand even woodthan TIMBER or COTTON, while requiring no insecticides, very little fertilizersno crop rotation (all of these are required for soil-depleting cotton), and only six weeks to gestation (as opposed to the 50-100 years typically required to grow timber). From this information alone, it is obvious that some very influential individuals,working behind-the-scenes for key corporate and government interests, have forced us into accepting the ultimate form of CORPORATELY-PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE as necessity: the COTTON and TIMBERindustries!

Now, let’s look at the other major factors for indicating “overpopulation” –air and water pollutionBoth are caused by overproduction of waste in comparison to the environment’s ability to filter it out. In the case of air pollution, the previously-mentioned deforestation and soil erosion are major contributing factors, while smog-emissions are the main cause. The bulk of smog-emissions are created by another form of so-called “necessity”-based corporately-planned obsolescence: the oil industry, along with their biggest allies, the militaries of the industrialized nations, and the weapons industry.

There have been plenty of alternative fuels available for a long timethat produce less pollution and more energy than oil, but here we are as a population in the year 2007, and these technologies are not being made nearly as readily available!

Water pollution is mainly caused by the universally-accepted policy of dumping toxins and waste into the rivers and oceans of the world. And, this is almost exclusively done by factories, large boats and aircraft, the oiland chemical industries of the world bear the vast majority of responsibility.

As you can see, all major factors contributing to overpopulation seem to be corporation-produced and politically and legally sanctioned. One might even go as far as to say that these corporations see Nature ascompetition – to be eliminated. If they can remove all traces of Her bounty, then humanity will all have no choice but to accept inferior man-made trash as “good” and “helpful” to existence!

This is how easy it is to disprove the psuedo-scientific tyranny of “overpopulation”! And, we must never forget that the intellectual elite have been pushing this agenda for over two centuries – ever since the theory of overpopulation was first published by Thomas Malthus! And, even he laid out his case with the express agenda of murdering the masses of the poor:

*Sigh* It’s SAD that us REAL, FLESH AND BLOOD HUMAN BEINGS have to share OUR PLANET with an endless stream of PARASITIC, NON-COPOREAL, LEGALLY-FABRICATED CORPORATIONS, who pollute and destroy Nature in the name of “profit” and “progress,” using the oppressive force of monopoly, artifical scarcity, and planned obsolescence! Where is the JUSTICE!?
