Population control is necessary through natural and man-controlled checks in order to stabilize food supply because the poor reproduces more than they can manage. Natural checks include poverty, epidemics, and warfare. These all work towards keeping the population down, which would allow everyone a stable amount of food. Preventative checks include man's superior mindset which does not allow man, specifically the poor, to realize that his financial state cannot support many children. However, the poor continually breeds. Food grows at a slower rate than population, and this supply is bound to run out if the poor continues to breed. Additionally, the poor blames society and government when it is themselves they should blame for not maintaining the balance between food supply and population.
