Well, what are you gonna do when you get old?
If you dont have alot of kids to take care of you then you are
going to die. So you gotta keep squesing them out while you
can before/if you get old.

Thats what I think is going throug peoples minds in these poor
countries. But then again imigrants here are doing well and they
still get like 5+ kids. Why?

but if you treat him as he ought to be and could be,
he will become as he ought to be and could be"

It seems we all want the same thing here. SirShroomalot, I agree that a hell of a lot of the problem with the third world is the population growth. I was born and grew up in Malawi, one of the poorest and most over-populated country in the world (same pop as Zimbabwe, less than 1/4 the size). The question is what to do about it.

To get back to my original point, we are not doomed. We never have been. As long as progress is allowed to occur we can continue to find solutions to the worlds proplems. Organisations like greenpeace etc... are anti-progress. They do nothing except complain. They have no social outreach programs and they no no real research of thier own, preffering to cherry-pick from the extant scientific literature. They select those few facts that support thier nebulous and hypothetical critisisms of various companies and technologies while completely ignoring the vast body of hard evidence that contradicts them.

Most of seem to be rabid anti-capitalists. What is the alternative? communism? get a life! Globalisation is a result of free trade and free trade is the only way poor countries can get thier products to first world markets. The EU is the worst offender here, notorious for protecting its own markets to the detriments of other (often poorer nations).
