Population control is necessary through natural and man-control checks in order to stabilize food supply because the poor reproduces more than they can manage. The man-control checks consisted of decreasing of food supply and the amount of children in families. Thomas R. Malthus's idea of controlling population because he believed the more people there are, the food there is. The food supply could never be lower than the population. As an example if the population and the food supply was not stable that meant that there would be an decrease of population. Thomas explained that there were wars, plagues epidemics and disease that kept the population together. Lastly Malthus also argued that the poor accuses government, rich, and society by not having enough money to care for their numerous amounts of children.
