The idea that humanity is multiplying at a terrible and accelerating rate is one of the false dogmas of our times. From that notion springs the widely held beliefs that unless population growth is immediately contained by every governmental and private method imaginable, mankind faces imminent disaster. These ideas form the basis for an enormous international population-control industry that billios of dollars of taxes as well as the full time efforts of private philanthropies. Embodied in their agenda is a the soct of social planning that actually mandates draconian control over families, churches, and other voluntary institutions around the globe.
Point by point, Dr. Kasun shatters the dogmas of the controllers - tenets that simply fall apart under close scrutiny and comparison with a mountain of data that the controllers refuse to confront. This is a fascinating book, a tour de force effort to restore reality to a subject that has become unmoored by ideology.
