While many myths compete with “the-world-is-over-populated-with-humans” myth for the honor of being the myth with least empirical and theoretical support, no myth surpasses the over-population myth in groundlessness and, really, absurdity pregnant with totalitarian impulses. I like the take of the Boston Globe‘s Jeff Jacoby .
And see here  just how out of touch with reality is the myth of over-population. (HT Chris Meisenzahl)
