People have to understand that there are places on this Earth that
simply can't sustain a large population. I find it hard to watch as
people in some of the dirt poorest places on this Earth are raising
I guess I find it equally hard to watch as unnaturally large populations
in what are effectively deserts are sustained by food donations from
western countries like Canada, USA, Britain and Australia. I know it's
hard to watch as a famine decimates a population, but keeping a large
population alive by sending food to those areas is only delaying the
inevitable. Eventually the natural order has to prevail, and if the
land those people live on can't sustain a large population, then
eventually the population has to come down in those areas.
And, truth be told, Las Vegas and Phoenix, Arizona are just such
examples of how importing food to areas that couldn't naturally sustain
a large population can only work for so long. Eventually, that large
population uses up the resources and reserves of the area, and then
there's problems... water being the obvious one. As it stands now,
Phoenix, Arizona gets it's water from an underground aquifer.
Essentially, it's a huge underground oil reservoir filled with water
instead of oil. But, Phoenix is already having to curb water useage
because the aquifer is running out of water.
In all of these cases, eventually nature will prevail, and those areas
of the Earth that cannot support a large population simply won't have a
