Anti-Human Liberal Myth: There are Too Many Humans

Reminder: Due to illness, I am forced to modify my posting schedule ending, hopefully, by June 1st. Consequently, I am reducing the number of posts to two per day and will be relying on audio, video, and re-posts to a much greater extent than normal during this period.  Thank you for understanding and for continuing to visit – and recommending! -- On Liberty Street! Now on to the post:

The greatest single resource in existence is the human mind, and the more there are the better our species will be.  The wack-job liberal enviros don't agree, of course; they view humans as a pox on existence.  Well, Walter Williams says bunk in this most recent entry in The Foundation for Economic Education's Cliches's of Progressivism:
Population controllers have a Malthusian vision of the world that sees population growth outpacing the means for people to care for themselves. Mankind’s ingenuity has proven the Malthusians dead wrong. As a result we can grow increasingly larger quantities of food on less and less land. The energy used to produce food, per dollar of GDP, has been in steep decline. We’re getting more with less, and that applies to most other inputs we use for goods and services.
