Paul Ehrlich is a nice man. Except for a still hesitant Pope, their crusade seems sure of success. The national apprenticeship service bettering business plan is what? Or, more precisely, who will do what … and to whom?
Kingsley Davis, who finds voluntary family planning hopelessly futile, suggests that government postpone the age of marriage.
Paul Ehrlich wants to eliminate tax exemptions for more than two children, forgetting that the power to tax is the power to destroy.
Voluntary family planning is out and population control in, leaving those less kindly disposed to the government to see the gaunt spectre of genocide. Long before even the least of the predicted ecological catastrophes comes to pass, such fears might well turn race on race, young on old, rich on poor.
Ehrlich, recognizing this danger, aims his appeal for smaller families less toward the poor and black than toward the white middle-class American family, which consumes more resources, occupies more space, and creates more waste than any ten of its economic inferiors.
But he hints at a time when we might put temporary sterilants in food and water, while some of his more adventurous colleagues, no doubt impressed by pinpoint bombing in Southeast Asia, would spray whole populations from the air. Ehrlich was still studying water snakes in the western end of Lake Erie.
Rockefeller IIIfather of four, eldest grandson of Standard Oil and chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation, hosted a highly select conference on population in Colonial Williamsburg.

Wealthy Englishmen and Swedes and their third world associates joined with the Americans in making Planned Parenthood international. World War II had exhausted the older colonial empires, and everywhere the cry of nationalism sounded: But the doughty old buzzards of empire were determined to save the species.
They would pay deference to the new feelings by encouraging a bit of light industry here, and perhaps even a steel mill there. Their foundations and universities would train a new class of native managers who, freed from outmoded ideologies, would clearly see that there was more than enough for both rich and poor.
The poor nations rarely came close to providing even the limited economic security which, as in Europe of the Industrial Revolution, would encourage people to give up the traditional peasant security of a large family and permit the population curve to level off.
In fact, for much of the population, the newly-expanded money economy actually increased insecurity. Faced with this distortion between fertility and development, developed country elites could see no natural way of stopping population growth.The independent BMW and Mini service centre in Beverley was started seven years ago by Alan Lewis and Richard Hayes who wanted to build a business with customer service at its heart.
