Population Control is necessary by natural and man controlled checks in order to stabilize food supply because the poor produces more than they can manage. When Malthus lists his concerns on overpopulation, he specifically connects population to poverty. The poor people of the world blame the rich for taking more than they can handle, when really it’s the poor who are taking more than the needed amount. The poor overproduce children and therefore they don’t have enough food for their family. This is because their wages are very low. The solution to prevent these food shortages is through population control. Food grows slower than people, therefore it is the population that needs to be watched, not the food. The poor also need to take the responsibility and the consequences of their poor decisions (poor decisions being having too many kids). The poor needs to use preventative checks to limit the population and stabilize food supply.
