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)
