Immigration during economic collapse

It is an historical phenomenon, common to all Western nations, but also to any nation, which is perceived by the outsider as offering more opportunities for survival than its own. The whole world is a common, a place of free exchange for hungry and dispossessed people.

Catastrophists versus Cornucopians

srcPopulation growth advocates insist that human ingenuity is capable of solving all possible challenges posed by resource scarcity no matter how large the world's human population becomes, yet they also apparently believe that human ingenuity is incapable of solving what would seem to be of far easier problem to solve, that is, of providing for a larger proportion of elderly members in societies that have stabilised their populations.

The underclass's use of contraception

This may be comical, but if you consider the unfettered and irresponsible breeding of a certain underclass especially among immigrants, who have promiscuous family arrangements producing a generation of neglected children, the picture is a worrying descent into anarchy, delinquency, social disorder and population rise of quantity at the expense of quality.
