Do you agree with Malthus :D

  1. Malthus preconised things like "increase the mortality rate of the poor." "In our towns we should make the streets narrower, crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague. In the country we should build our villages near stagnant pools, and particularly encourage settlements in all marshy and unwholesome situations."
  2. of course he is talking about population reduction for the good of the whole society :).
