Rockefeller's Council on Foreign Relations recently published an article stating that the US population should be reduced to "about it's size in the 1940's" (200) - in other words, cut it back by at least half. It goes without saying that similar (if not more drastic) "cuts" are called for in the rest of the world. Most of their attention is with the "less developed" countries. (201)
As ecologist Murry Buckchin (202) so eloquently put it;
"All too often, alas, the overpopulation message is also focused on Third World countries. (This, although the number of people who occupy a square mile in the Third World is actually immensely smaller than the numbers for Europe and the United States)."
The facts are that population growth decreases as social services increase. (203) That makes sense. Poor people have lots of kids so that a few survive to look after them in their old age. If the "population control freaks" were really serious about reducing the population growth rate the decent way (instead of the quick, racist and profitable way), they would see to it that the whole world had the same social safety net that exists in near-zero population growth countries like Italy or Japan.
Further, if we all change how we consume - away from unsustainable like fossil fuels and harsh chemicals, and towards wind/wave/sun/bio fuels and sustainable technologies, we could quite easily support double today's population. In other words, it's not "how many" of us their are, but "how smart" we all are with our limited resources.
During the aptly named Rockefeller Hearings before the U.S. congress in 1994, government officials admitted; "..to more than 50 years of bio-warfare experiments carried out on hundreds of thousands of American citizens." (204)
Let's end this bio-genocidal experiment before some moron does something quick, racist and profitable.

[SiaNews Note: What is the mathematical likelihood that six (6) of the eleven members of 9/11 Panel could be members of the Council on Foreign Relations? Comprising less than 4,000 members, and amongst 310,000,000 Americans alive today, what are the chances? Anyone good at laws of probability?]
