First of all, I enjoy a great friendship and respect for
Ernest Hancock, the publisher of www.FreedomsPhoenix.com
. He invited me to write for him nearly
ten years ago. True to form, I write prolifically for his news service and
millions of readers respond to my commentaries.
I write logical, rational and well-researched commentaries that deal
with America’s most pressing issues: overpopulation driven by mass immigration.
Many Americans don’t want to hear about it or read about
it. It’s too depressing, too
overwhelming and much easier to stick their heads into the sand like an
As a regular contributor to FreedomsPhoenix for the past 10
years, I carved out a large audience of readers on his Libertarian news website. Ernest Hancock and I have knocked heads in
the past and this past Wednesday, April 24, 2013, we voiced our opinions on
immigration and overpopulation in America.
Listen to the interview: https://vimeo.com/64652013
Hancock noted that many readers feel so infuriated or
intimidated by my commentaries on FreedomsPhoenix, he created a “delete” button
they could engage to block any of my columns from their view. I informed him that many people, upon hearing
sobering or harsh news; choose to live in denial or the “ignorance is bliss”
They may live in denial of reality for a specified amount of
time, but reality will not allow them to live in denial forever.
This past Wednesday, I stated numerous harsh numbers like 42
million Americans suffering from functional illiteracy; 47 million Americans
subsisting on food stamps; 13 million children living below the poverty level;
14 million unemployed Americans; 40 percent of African-Americans without jobs
and much more. I also informed listeners
that our U.S. Congress pumps 100,000 legal immigrants into our country every 30
Hancock responded, “I don’t care about the numbers…what
happens when we use technology to discover a clean burning form of energy…your
argument goes to naught….”
I answered with the fact that numbers do matter. I said that
our country cannot continue its onslaught of species extinction, acidified
oceans, contaminating our ground water, toxifiy our soils and polluting our
atmosphere. I responded with our adding
100 million immigrants in 37 years won’t be sustainable.
These facts did not faze Ernest Hancock. I invited him to stop allowing his ideology
and political persuasion to cloud the facts, to cloud reality and to subvert
his ability to reason. He almost carried
on a religious conversation that we would save ourselves with technology.
Answer: we won’t. We crush this planet’s ability to feed us
with 80,000 chemicals and worse. We add
80 million people net gain annually that starve to death or live in abject and
entrenched poverty. We cause the “Sixth
extinction session” with our encroachment of the wilderness. We trash the
oceans with the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch”.
I can list a dozen other serious calamities brought on by humankind.
You see, Mr. Hancock, you cannot get away with ignoring the
numbers any more than a 300 pound fat man can gain another 300 pounds and think
he will still be able to walk and enjoy a healthy heart. The greater the numbers, the more extreme the
consequences. Human misery, debilitation
and early and ugly death.
This fact remains whether Mr. Hancock, my friend, likes it
or not. I am a Galileo of the 21st
century on this overpopulation issue.
Hancock may be the “Pope” of the 1600s now in the 21st
century speaking out against me and inanely arguing with me, but we all know
what became “self-evident” between the pope and Galileo. My work will become just as self-evident no
matter how much Hancock stands in denial of reality. Hancock cannot run from it or hide from it or
deny it for very long. None of us can continue our self-deluded charade of endless expansion. How's it working for all the obese people in this country?
we don’t halt population growth with justice and compassion, it will be done
for us by nature, brutally and without pity – and will leave a ravaged world.
~Nobel Laureate Dr. Henry W. Kendall
"The raging monster upon the land is
population growth. In its presence, sustainability is but a fragile theoretical
construct. To say, as many do, that the difficulties of nations are not
due to people, but to poor ideology and land-use management is sophistic.”
Harvard scholar and biologist E.O. Wilson
population growth cannot be sustained; you cannot sustain growth in the rates
of consumption of resources. No species can overrun the carrying capacity of a
finite land mass. This Law cannot be repealed and is not negotiable.” Dr. Albert Bartlett, www.albartlett.org
, University of Colorado, USA.
“Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem
the migrant tide [that adds 80 million net gain annually to the planet], but to
absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been
endured and shared by all—ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically
devastated planet.” Dr. Otis Graham, Unguarded Gates
We must, as a nation, stop mass immigration or we face
ultimate collapse of our civilization as to lack of water, arable soil, energy
depletion and resource exhaustion. We
cannot keep adding millions upon millions of people. Nothing will get solved
whether we enjoy a Libertarian, Republican, Dictatorship or any other kind of
We must face our limits and our environment with reason,
understanding and a stable and sustainable population. In fact, we need to
decline our population gracefully via birth control. Anything else means
eventual suicide of our civilization.
