If you've never actually suffered from starvation you've got no right to complain about what Borlaug has done.
And if you want to blame someone for overpopulation, look at the Catholic church and the Pope who go into Africa preaching that condoms and birth control are sins.
Education is the solution to overpopulation, not passive eugenics through starvation. The reason families have more kids in the first place is to offset the number of possible deaths among them and to ensure the parents are cared for in their old age. Educated countries are seeing a significant decline in the birth rate.
So if you're going to bitch about someone who prevented brown people from starving, take a week off eating yourself and then get back to me.
Seeing as we are now officially the only ones who know who this guy is, we should probably include something more martial when we pass on his legend. Like maybe he saved a billion lives by fighting off an alien invasion with his bare hands. Just for good measure.
second, insinuating i'm a racist shows your maturity level and ablility to develop a rational position on this subject
and third, **** you
this man accomplished nothing except to prolong the enevitable. you could say that by preventing the deaths of a billion he caused the suffering of a trillion.
and what does any of this have to do with bullshido? have you forgoten why you started this site? pull your head out of your ass.
And while I'm here...
Chubbychaser, you should be officially banned from eating Borlaug(TM) brand edible stuff.
You sound like you're still on mothermilk yet anyhow.
Besides, for a guy spewing F.U.'s to Phrost several times in each post you have the face to preach about "maturity level"?
Agreed. I admit that when he died, AR15.com had a link to "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived" so I had to click it. It led me to the Penn & Teller video from above. Certainly a noteworthy badass and extraordinary human being.
Even if I don't agree that this man is the greatest human being to walk the planet, your line of thinking is greatly flawed.
