The opposite of Love is fear, not hate. I don’t know who said this, but it makes a lot of sense specially when trying to understand the family planning movement in India. The seeds of fear sown since 1960’s through the famous book called Population Bomb makes an average Indian a monster in the eyes of a westerner. He/She becomes an enemy instantly. In the opening remarks of his book Paul Elrich describes his experience in the streets of Delhi as below:
“I have understood the population explosion in- tellectually for a long time. I came to understand it emotionally one stinking hot night in Delhi a couple of years ago. My wife and daughter and I were returning to our hotel in an ancient taxi. The seats were hopping with fleas. The only functional gear was third. As we crawled through the city,
we entered a crowded slum area. The temperature was well over 100, and the air was a haze of dust and smoke. The streets seemed alive with people. People eating, people washing, people sleeping. People visiting, arguing, and screaming. People thrusting their hands through the taxi window, begging. People defecating and urinating. People clinging to buses. People herding animals. People, people, people, people. As we moved
slowly through the mob, hand horn squawking,the dust, noise, heat, and cooking fires gave the scene a hellish aspect. Would we ever get to our hotel? All three of us were, frankly, frightened. It seemed that anything could happen—^but, of course, nothing did. Old India hands will laugh at our reaction. We were just some overprivileged tourists, unaccustomed to the sights and sounds of India. Perhaps, but since that night I’ve known
the feel of overpopulation.”
But people do not know to this day that when he wrote the above text and created the panic of overpopulation in India, Delhi’s population was only 3 million with 573 square miles land area. Now in 2017, the population of New York city is more than 8 million living in 302 square miles. Should we line them up and sterilize them? May be provide them with some gifts as incentive to be sterilized?
The whole point am trying to get here is, India is not exploding anymore, there’s no more population explosion taking place. Millions of U.S. tax payer dollars have been poured into abusing our families and this has to end. Enough is Enough.
