From Jack Griffin's letter of 7 April 1999: The
past several days must emphasize the global nature of our concern for excessive
human population growth.
I am a member of AESP [Australians for an Ecologically Sustainable
Population] and have been asked to co-operate in making the General Meeting
a success ...
You should say, "so what? -- Why bother?" ! !
The answer is survival; the survival of my posterity. I'm lucky
enough to have been born when there were only 2.5 billion of us, and have
thus enjoyed a relatively comfortable 78 years. My six-year-old granddaughter,
nor the 5-year-old kid next door, have no such chance without protecting
themselves from the 6 billion (and growing) now looking for living space.

We don't know that the creativity of man can come up with a means to accommodate
6 or 12 billion or even more human beings, but it looks pretty
hopeless right now with humanistic organizations greeting refugees with a
few biscuits and lots of pamphlets on brotherly love. I abhor organizations,
especially those that depend on a few "high-profile personalities" to
rave against tribalism or extol world central government.
