Re: [ishmael_discussion] Digest Number 279
- Lance, what system would work? If Quinn's theory is correct how would it be applied?National socialism? Global socialism? ;-)
Also Quinn tells readers that it is the individual that must make a difference. Our system allows choice as to whether we reproduce or not, (which doesn't seem very natural to me). We also create the huge food surplus. So how does change happen? What is the new system to be to control population? Less food, less people right? I AGREE. But do we let billions starve? What is the system called that makes people have sex and reproduce? Nature? I understand that some think sex has little to do with it, but I disagree.
I want to know how population is controlled without killing and starving innocent people that have NO idea they are contributing to our demise. A vision without "careful" action isn't going to help us. *confused* -magick323
"The whole POINT of Daniel Quinn's works' is to illustrate that
population growth is NOT a matter of individuals. Pop. growth is a function of
SYSTEMS, not individuals." Lance B
