In a somewhat breathlessly alarmist posting by environmentalist Stephen Messenger, we are told that
Earth is in the midst of a population crisis, and extremes are heading in both directions. While countless species have seen their numbers plummet in recent decades, with more than a few going extinct entirely, humans have seen theirs grow and grow — and the two trends are hardly unrelated.
In the 200,000 years since Homo Sapiens took her first steps across the African plains, just 57 billion people have ever lived. Astonishingly that means over 12% of all the people ever born are walking the planet at this very moment. Or to put it another way: one in eight people who have ever been born are alive today.

I know some of you may still have trouble with the idea that Hitler was a liberal. But consider, according to a recent book by his secretary, Hitler was a vegetarian who spoke against using animals for food, constantly dieted, wanted to ban smoking and abused drugs.

Hitler could quite comfortably be teaching Middle Eastern studies in academia today, say at Brooklyn College, or be receiving an honorary doctorate from CUNY.

Within the framework of their revolutionary agenda, they are flexible and opportunistic and will say anything (and pretend to be anything) to get what they want, which is resources and power…the issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”
