Overpopulation is a real threat – letter to the Editor in The Australian, Wednesday 13 December 2017

Isn’t it great that other Australians realise that overpopulation is a real threat? Read the letter in The Australian yesterday showing the writer’s belief that the Defence Department should be looking into overpopulation – so true.




  • Funny, the ABC reports that Russia is a threat to northern Australia (‘cos they’re white?), yet when was the last time a Russian plane bombed us? Russia is only doing play wars with Indonesia near Darwin, not even over it. But tensions in the suburbs are barely mentioned on the ABC, or played down as nothing. Balanced news? Hardly these days. Murdoch media give the other biased side to the stories (street gangs at large), so one has to watch both to get the middle story. No wonder so many turn off and just use social media (which is worse still for unbalanced stories and rumours). When will the media wars end?

  • The stresses that significant overpopulation (competition for resources) would impose on a homogeneous population would be bad enough but in a multicultural, pluralistic country like Australia, the effect would be disastrous as we all retreated into our many and varied tribes.
