Gilder: Mouths, Not Minds

“Pervading the media, the churches, the schools, the universities – persisting even in the 1980s at Harvard – in a fervor of antinatalist faith, the belief arose that growth was a problem, rather than the solution. Crucial was the notion, originating with Pastor Malthus, that populations consist mainly of mouths, not minds – that people will tend to consume more than they produce.”

– George Gilder, Men and Marriage (p. 195)
