Third World Realities - Africa's REAL population crisis
from New Federalist,  by Linda de Hoyos

Jan. 13 (EIRNS)--``Malthus is vindicated.... The Third World is overpopulated,'' proclaimed Dr. Arne Schiotz,director of conservation of Prince Philip's World Wildlife Fund. ``It's an economic mess, and there's no way they could get out of it with this fast-growing population.'' IS THIS TRUE OR BOGUS? PROPAGANDA?

IT SCARES YOU right? That could be a clue why this is some cabal of oligarchs' propaganda. That is why they tell you that. The entire recession and disappearing Wall St. money and along with it, your family homes, is being publicized ...done for same reason. The 1% of the 1% rich who have P.R. firms, think tanks at work and control news outlets ( see PROPAGANDA ARCHIVE ) NEED you to believe you are going to return to subsistence-level conditions as a result of agricultural (or, in later formulations, economic) production being eventually outstripped by growth in population. (i.e --EEEK! Too many PEOPLE here, not enough jobs or food or housing! That way, ordinary men are alienated, hateful, mistrusting, competitive, kept off balance by a sense of crowding, impending disaster.)  They will also PAY more for scarse housing even tho they earn less. The rich in control of economy and their bought pols in government want you to hear :"sorry fellow, so many people here, everyone wants your job, you're lucky you even have one".)

Thomas Malthus was seriously in the employ of the 16th century oligarchs of England in that distant time of the first big traders and merchants. He was their THINK TANK at the Maritime College. Their business success was predicated on workers being fearful, submissive, grateful for 'nose just above water'  salary.  Slave wages and CORN laws, the Enclosures where rich seized common meadows & threw farmers off the land..etc, and the constant census or SOUL count for taxing purposes all insured that the poor slaved away for a few slices of bread a day then died.  Any philosophy that said that many of them might starve and die in this impending collapse of civilization  terrorized peasants, & worked for the manufacturers and land owners to keep the people enchained, fearful, grateful and terrorized!

A survey of the continent of Africa exposes the fraud behind this misanthrope's declaration. MISANTHROPE IS SOMEONE WHO HATES PEOPLE, MIS - is hate. ANTHROP is people.)

Since many of the African countries were granted independence in the 1960s, Africa has enjoyed a 2-3% population growth rate, becoming one of the prime targets of Malthusians  via Dr Strangelove,  Dr. Arne Schiotz,  while others say Schiotz IS WORKING FOR THE OLIGARCHS. Three African countries--Egypt, Ethiopia, and Nigeria--were on the list of 13 countries specifically targeted by Henry Kissinger's National Security Study Memorandum 200, which formulated plans to stop population growth in developing countries as a U.S. national security priority. (funnily enough, this poster Anita descends from the Shatz family of Europe so I'm related to him!)

SCHIOTZ says too many people. Clear view positivists say 'Not ENOUGH People'

In reality, the African continent is {underpopulated.} Africa's population density is 451 persons per 1,000 hectares. With the exception of the United States (272 for 1,000 hectares) or Canada (29), Africa's population density was far less in 1990 than that in most industrialized nations--such as Japan (3,280), France (1,030), or Great Britain, headquarters of the world Malthusian movement (2,357). With stats like that you can see why UK strums that harp all the time. Paying plenty to do so, while they could spend the money on wheat seeds, vegie seed, high protein pulse seed and sell it at cost to Africans with a manual on making compost  out of poop the way Chinese have done. (Everyone carries a little shovel.)

The problem is not population density, but energy density, a parameter
that shows the true economic deficit imposed on the continent by the
International Monetary Fund, and the denial of technology and
infrastructure to the African countries.

In Africa in 1986, annual per-hectare energy consumption (1,000 kcal hectare
of usable land) was an average of 2,887, compared to
Western Europe's average of 89,447. Western Europe's energy consumption
per hectare was 31 times higher than Africa's! Even the world average
was 16,463--some 5.7 times higher than in Africa.

Taken per capita, average energy consumption in Africa is 6,439 thousand
kcals per year. Average per capita energy consumption in North America
is 83,900 thousand kcals. An American uses 13 times more energy every
day than an African. The world average is 22,200 thousand kcals per
person per year.

Thus, the biggest factor in Africa's crisis is not ``overpopulation,''
but lack of energy, in particular, lack of electricity and transport
that would permit Africa to industrialize. Instead, the continent has
been maintained as a raw materials preserve for the OECD nations.

If the development programs for Africa called for by American statesman
Lyndon LaRouche were carried out--crisscrossing Africa with railroads
and water projects to eradicate famine forever--far from being
overpopulated, Africa would confront an acute labor {shortage!}

Negative Population Growth?

Today, while Africa has the highest fertility rate in the world, it also
has the highest death rate. Nearly half the African countries have a
life expectancy of under 50 years--compared to 76 years for the average
American. The life expectancy is primarily brought down by the death of
children under 5, which in many African countries is at a rate higher
than 25%!

Now, there is growing evidence that the net population growth in Africa
is already {negative.} That is to say, Africans are beginning to undergo
a process of extermination--if the trend is not reversed.

In 1992, the government of Nigeria carried out a census which required
that citizens stay in their homes for three days to ensure an accurate
count. The population of Nigeria, based on the 1973 census, was
projected by the UN and other agencies to be in the range of 110-120
million. But the 1992 census could find only 88 million! While some of
the discrepancy can be accounted for by alleged inaccuracies in the 1973
census, physicians who have recently worked in Nigeria report that the
IMF's structural adjustment program, imposed in 1986, resulted in the
withdrawal of all medical services from rural areas. In these areas, the
child-under-5 death rate is extremely high, and adults are now dying at
higher rates.

In addition, Africa, because of the depletion of its population and the
rise of malaria and co-factors, is the world's epicenter for the deadly
disease AIDS. In Uganda, President Museveni has projected a decline in
Uganda's population by the year 2010--a conservative estimate. In
villages in the Uganda lakes region, 80% of the adult population between
the ages of 20 and 45 has been wiped out by AIDS. AIDS is hitting the
productive work force especially. In Tanzania, projections are that,
even without any development push, an acute labor shortage will arise
before the century is out.

What is killing Africa is not ``overpopulation,'' but the denial of
technology and development to an entire continent. Behind the trumpeting
of the word ``overpopulation'' is a policy of murder. If Africa looked
like Germany, it could support a population many times higher than its
current pathetic level. But for Africa to do that, the IMF and the
Malthusian ideology it enforces must be expunged from any positions of
power.
