Latest comment: "The earth is full." hm. "The earth is full." Damn, this sounds SOOO familiar. Oh, yes! Now I remember: "The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man." (I.e., "the earth is full.") Robert Thomas Malthus, 1798. Thanks for the badly outdated speech, Mr. Mal... er... Mr. Gilding. "Next verse, same as the first!"
