  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 150)...

    To me it seems that you discount the role of capitalism and imperialism in promoting population growth. Is this correct?

    ...and the response:

    I'm not sure why it "seems" that way. I have pointed out to many audiences (if not anywhere in my books or on my website) that the noble efforts Takers have made to bring unasked-for technological help to "backward" peoples in the Third World (particularly in the area of agricultural technology) is clearly linked to capitalism's fundamental need for an ever-expanding market. Wherever we bring our "enlightenment," you can be sure that population growth will follow.
