LETTER OF THE DAY

Filed at 6:13 am under by dcobranchi

Here’s an interesting one from the News-Journal:

Third World nations will compete with us

Americans and our leadership must concentrate on a few core issues. What standard of living do we want, regardless of birthplace? How many people can be sustained under the projection of those goals?

The most densely populated regions on Earth, once classified as the Third World, are rapidly developing into industrial and commercial giants. Consequently, these areas and people will soon demand, deserve and control the majority of the planet’s resources. When they clamor for the material comfort that only a few nations have enjoyed until recently, what is going to happen?

America has 5 percent of the globe’s resources. China has 20 percent of the world’s population and is closing in behind America on petroleum imports. China is the model of a future, overpopulated society. Discipline, education and measured growth are the benchmarks of bulging human existence.

Civil rights we take for granted may have to be modified or abandoned for the good of social stability.

Donald F. McHugh, Felton

Which civil rights did he have is mind? Are we going to have forced abortions like in China? Are parents with more than one or two kids going to be jailed? Details. We need details.

An outbreak of capitalism like you’ve never seen. It’s a beautiful thing.

I’m sure he has his sights firmly set on eeevil property rights.
