For a long time, the so called experts had decided that over population created poverty.
It took them a while to learn and deal with the truth.
Poverty creates population.
In a mean state of society, one needs a clan to cling to where all hands work together for their mutual benefit.
No bond is stronger than family, so poverty breeds large families.
When incomes go up, people have smaller families.
That's just the way it is.
You CAN live on love! Eat the babies.
