Is There A Population Problem? Or Is There a Negative Growth Problem?

Human Rights Catastrophes of the Sexual Revolution: Population Control and Demographic Winter

There is no overpopulation problem. The people in every industrial country in the world are not having enough children to even replace themselves. The birth rate is declining in most of the rest of the world as well. My interview with journalist Don Feder answers these important questions.

Does overpopulation cause poverty or pollution? Why is under-population a bigger problem than over-population? What do you say to people who criticize you for having more than two children?

Who is behind the population hysteria? What human rights abuses are being committed in the name of solving the "population problem?" Most importantly, what can you do about all this? Watch this episode of the Dr. J Show to find out!

Featuring Don Feder, long-time columnist for the Boston Herald and Communications Director for the World Congress of Families, now Ruth Institute Coalitions Director. A 1972 graduate of the Boston University School of Law, Feder is admitted to the practice of law in New York and Massachusetts. He was a leader of Young Americans for Freedom, at the time America’s largest conservative organization.

  • We need to see past stereotypes and see people. We need to see past stereotypes and, instead, see the image and likeness of God in each other. We should stop supporting media, individuals, and organizations that create, encourage, and perpetuate racist stereotypes, or who propose violence as a solution. Racist ideologies create images that leave negative impressions on susceptible and vulnerable minds and hearts, especially those of children.
  • Reach out with compassion to those of different races and hear their stories, respond with empathy, and work with humble, contrite hearts to build bridges of understanding in order to acknowledge the unique gifts we all bring to the Body of Christ.
  • We need to understand how police officers are trained. Go on a ride-a-long.
