Although the educated man is perfectible, the poor man is unable to recognize the need for both natural checks and preventative checks, which prevent an unsustainable ratio between population and its resources. first of all, the nature of man is to reproduce, and the uneducated man has little knowledge of how to oppose that nature. Therefore, this leads to a disproportion with there being either too many resources for men to withhold, or too many men for the resources to keep up with. i believe that it is the poor causing these problems and their mistakes should be corrected with both natural and preventative checks. Natural checks in cases such as poverty, famine, disease, or war whereas preventative checks should be introduced to limit the family size and the amount of children.
