I’m not sure what it is about being an environmental fanatic that makes some people go fascist, but Diane Francis, writing in the Financial Post, is not the first:
The “inconvenient truth” overhanging the UN’s Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world.
A planetary law, such as China’s one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days.
China’s one-child policy has been enforced through the use of forced abortions and sterilizations, among other pleasant social practices, and has resulted in a grotesque gender disparity (121 males born to every 100 females, as of 2006) that is causing or exacerbating a variety of social ills. But other than that, it’s a peachy idea.
Especially to those who, like Ms. Francis, already have two children.
