Script for Present Planned Parenthood/ Erlich Dystopian fiction (Read it when I was12)
Obviously Ehrlich did NOT plagiarise “the marching morons”, due to his Cunningly Having Couched HIS VERSION as “Really Real Science,” rather than “Science Fiction Dribble,” and…Morons In the 21st. Century ARE the ONLY THREAT to PLANET EARTH…And Public Education has Truly Produced a Population of “Marching Morons” in America, as Art Linkletter even had a Dystopia Television Show on Black & White Television when I was a Child, “People Do The Stupidest Things…”
The EVIDENCE is People Believe Something Is Reality because they “Witnessed It On Television” (Like the MOON LANDING in 1969…Duuh! WHERE DID THE MOON JEEP, a Internal Combustion Gasoline Fuel Vehicle; Requiring Huge Amounts of Oxygen to Run…on a Dead Airless Rock?)
Global Warming is the Epitome of Morons Marching to the Pied Pipers of Eugenics….Think how We Jews were so Compliant with the Nazis, believing Up To the Death, Civilised 20Th. Century would, nor Could, do Such a Thing! Well, Genocidal Eugenicists now Have a Marching Moron Army of Environmonons Green Sacrificial Morons soon to be Extent…
Ehrlich became well known for his controversial 1968 book The Population Bomb, which asserted that the world’s human population would soon increase to the point where mass starvation ensued. Among the measures he suggested in that book was population control, to be used in his opinion if voluntary methods were to fail. Ehrlich has been criticized for his views; for example, Ronald Bailey called Ehrlich an irresponsible doomster. On the other hand, Carl Haub observed that Ehrlich’s warnings had not enough credence to take seriously to avert disaster. Ehrlich has acknowledged that” some of what he had written had not come about, ”
How About NEVER came about? He stated the Earth Would DIE in 1985!
but has restated his view that over-population remains a major problem.

The human population is now 3,000,000 highbred elite and 5,000,000,000 morons, and the “average” IQ is 45 (whereas in the real world, an IQ score of 100 is average, or median, by definition). Several generations before the onset of the story, the small number of remaining 100-and-higher-IQ technocrats, ignored by the general public about the impending population problem, work feverishly to keep the morons alive.
The elite have had little success in solving the Problem (also called “Poprob”, for ‘population problem’, in the story) for several reasons:
The morons must be managed or else there will be chaos, resulting in billions of deaths;
It is not possible to sterilize all of the morons;
Propaganda against large families is insufficient, because every biological drive is towards fertility
The elite had tried everything rational to solve the population problem, but the problem could not be solved rationally. The solution required a way of thinking that no longer existed — Barlow’s “vicious self-interest” and knowledge of the distant history.
The final solution
Barlow derives a solution based on his experience in scamming people into buying worthless land and knowledge of lemmings’ mass migration into the sea: convince the morons to travel to Venus in spaceships that will kill their passengers out of view of land. Propaganda depicts Venus as a tropical paradise, with “blanket trees”, “ham bushes” and “soap roots”. In a nationalistic frenzy, every country tries to send as many of their people to Venus as possible to stake their claim.
Barlow’s help includes using his knowledge of Nazi propaganda tactics: postcards are sent from the supposedly happy new residents of Venus to relatives left behind, describing a wonderful, easy life, in the same way as fraudulent postcards were sent to relatives of those incinerated in the Nazi death-camps.
In a twist of irony, Barlow is cheated by his erstwhile assistants. Kornbluth describes the con: “It was a wonderful, wonderfully calculated buildup, and one that he [Barlow] failed to suspect. After all, in his time a visitor from the past would have been lionized.” Barlow does not realize that the elite despise him as they despise all people from the past for having not solved The Problem earlier. In the end, Barlow is placed on a spaceship and sent to share the fate of his victims.
