Population control, or ‘Human population planning’ is the practice of intentionally managing the rate of growth of a human population (including the unborn population). Historically, human population planning has been implemented with the goal of increasing the rate of human population growth. However, from around the 1950s, concerns about global population growth and its possible effects (a concern that has been widely discredited) have led to efforts to reduce human population growth rates. Most notably the Chinese government’s “one-child policy” has resorted to coercive measures.
“Population control” can also include a range of other topics. Governments today intentionally manage populations with media restrictions, various economic controls and other regulations. A very recent example of governments managing already existing populations is the loosening of immigration restrictions (Europe, most notably Germany), and/ or mass recruitment of foreign workers. Despite its appearance, this has been intentional. One aim of these measures is to destroy the ‘middle class’ of the wealthier nations of the world in order to create a single global class of citizen that can be more easily managed and controlled by a central government, probably the United Nations (UN). The danger is that freedoms of all kinds will be removed from families and children all around the globe.
The push by governments to remove the privacy of their citizens is also a major factor in this category. In short, government wants to control every aspect of society from the cradle to the grave. This includes dictating how many children you can have, what they can and can’t do, and what they can and can’t say.
