Malthus thinks that population will forever outgrow the resources needed to sustain life, therefore creates a list of strong, constructive principles society should follow. Malthus believes that population should be checked , and unchecked population increases in a geometrical ration, while subsistence only in an arithmetical ratio. Therefore, food, which is necessary for survival should be kept equally distributed. Also, Malthus considers positive checks of population, death by society to be a natural form of limiting the population. Lastly, Malthus is certain that population and poverty mixed leads to accusations of wages, parishes, rich and un-justs of society because one cannot provide for his family. While a large population gives factories more employees, it causes the food supply to run low, therefore causing positive and preventive checks to be necessary, in order to prevent the poor from overpopulating and blaming the government.
