"They [the New World Order] want to reduce the population [to 500 million] and their target date is May 5th of 2000. […..] The demons who call themselves spirit guides have told them. “You know, you have to reduce the population by May 5th.” Because May 5th is Karl Marx’s birthday, you know, enter the Age of Aquarius. […..] I suspect they may use Y2K as an excuse to create some little problems here, we shall have to wait and see."

 
Kent Hovind
 

This would, at a stroke, reduce the rise in prices, increase production and reduce unemployment.

 
Edward Heath
 

"There can be no permanent progress in the battle against hunger until the agencies that fight for increased food production and those that fight for population control unite in a common effort."

 
Norman Borlaug
 

Capitals accumulate faster than the population; thus wages; thus population; thus grain prices; thus the difficulty of production and hence the exchange values.

 
Karl Marx
 

Three and a half million years separate the individual who left these footprints in the sands of Africa from the one who left them on the moon. A mere blink in the eye of evolution. Using his burgeoning intelligence, this most successful of all mammals has exploited the environment to produce food for an ever-increasing population. In spite of disasters when civilisations have over-reached themselves, that process has continued, indeed accelerated, even today. Now mankind is looking for food, not just on this planet but on others. Perhaps the time has now come to put that process into reverse. Instead of controlling the environment for the benefit of the population, perhaps it's time we control the population to allow the survival of the environment.
