I'm always surprised by the lack of understanding of the "population
problem" around me. It seems to be a cultural taboo, and even people whose
ideas are close to permaculture (the "décroissance" (downshifting) movement
in France) are against this view, see as a "neo malthusianism" theory
against the third world poors. In the newspaper oy the same name, they'd
bashed Teddy Goldsmith for suh ideas.

I think people disconnected from (science) ecology and ecosystems are not
aware of such problems, only seen as consumption and share pbs.
