This article originally appeared on the New York Post Bernie Sanders is a real blast from the past. Not only does the aging pol peddle failed socialist ideas that are better at producing tyranny than prosperity, now he’s recycling the long discredited idea that we are breeding ourselves off the face of the planet.

Are We Running Out of People?



Ask anyone if the world is overpopulated, and you know what they will say. The idea that we humans are breeding ourselves to death—and taking the planet with us–is in the air that we breathe.

The New York Times Throws in the Towel on “Overpopulation”



My guess is that you, gentle reader, will be as astonished as we were by the top-of-the-website New York Times article discrediting the population alarmism of the past fifty years. In “The Unrealized Horrors of Population Explosion” the newspaper has finally (several decades too late) thrown population control on the ash heap of discredited ideas. The article included a video interview with Paul Ehrlich, the author of The Population Bomb. He was the butterfly scientist …

Police Brutality Happens Every Day in China



“Just a few days ago, I got a case involving a man who was disabled due to a severe beating by local government personnel just because his sister-in-law had had an additional baby without a permit.” — Chen Guangcheng Last Thursday, on April 30th, Congressman Chris Smith chaired a hearing on population control in China in the U.S. Capitol.
