Part 1: Human felony of giving food aid without contraceptive aid
As a college freshman, my residence hall opted to forgo Sunday meals to give money to the 90 million starving souls in Bangladesh. We felt good because we fed millions of famished children. However, no one understood the downside: we fed an already overpopulated country that grew to 144 million people. What's wrong with that? Answer: they live in a landmass the size of Iowa. They expect to double their population by mid century.
What felony did we commit? We gave food aid without contraceptive aid. Thus, they face greater human tragedy as their population exploded like a human atomic bomb. They live in utter squalor and degradation unknown in the Western world, except for Haiti!
Ironically, Haiti suffers not only from an earthquake, but at nine million on its way to 12 million living on a spit of an island, that civilization faces horrific consequences at every level. They cut down 98 percent of their trees. They drain 36 million tons of topsoil into the ocean annually--thus lack arable land to feed their humongous population. They pump billions of gallons of toxic sewage directly into the ocean. They suffer unimaginable illiteracy rates. They grow their population beyond their ability to maintain a sustainable and livable civilization.
