When talking about global population, this idiot Cohen fails to make the simple distinction - between producer groups and consumer groups - that you'd think would be obvious to an academician, even one hopelessly castrated by the PC tourniquet of wishful-thinking universal egalitarianism.
These elite competitive compassion professionals would just as soon try to make the case that it was African culture that enabled humankind to grow to such gargantuan numbers today, by their noble and selfless refusal to overdevelop the Dark Continent, and sully it with the kind of wicked, sinful consumerism that silly liberals are always whining about (5% of the population consumes 25% of the resources, boo hoo....).
What's funny about people like Cohen, is that while they continue to tell the joke of human universalism, and deny Western preeminence in creating this situation in the first place, they also seem to think that the same hard-wired morality imperatives that led the West to turn its altruism outward, is some kind of universal legacy of mankind, equally present in the moral fabric of all ethnicities.
From the article:
Obviously people like Cohen just can't stomach the thought of people who look like him being responsible for the advances in medicine that allowed the population of Ethipoia, for example, to triple in 25 short years (to over 90 million). Or maybe he can't bear to think of his relation to those who look like him and whose inner morality athlete insists on enabling Nigerian women to fatten up their seven babies (on average) on donated American grains and canned milk.
On that last note, there is a glimmer of truthfulness in Cohen's article :
As the West races to the precipice of civilizational suicide, it is exactly this kind of misinformation, this kind of smug refusal to report truthfully on ethnorealism, that Mad Max-style pushes the pedal to the metal. And soon, it's over the cliff we go.
If demographics is not destiny, then the New York Times is a truthful, honest publication.
