Hunger and fear (of predators) are basic necessities for survival and politics is a sociological extension of both of these ...............
I'll grant you this claim. However, this is not support for Malthusian theories any more than any other theory. The Malthusian Theory of Population can be shown to be incorrect with even a cursory examination of the history of food production and population over the last 200 years.
You may claim that an increasing human population will affect the global ecosystem in negative ways. I would not disagree with this claim. However, if you maintain that Malthusian Theory of Population is an accurate description of reality, then I must disagree, as the last two centuries show that the presumptions he made were utterly unfounded and therefore the conclusions he made were nonsensical.
FFS, you opened this thread with a demonstrably false claim. Food production does not increase arithmetically, and population does not increase geometrically.
If you wish to maintain that that which is demonstrably false is true, then you are exhibiting a false belief. Your false belief isn't a theology until you associate supernatural beings that assert falsehoods and human servants that demand fealty and money in order to support the demonstrably false beliefs. While there are many adherents to Malthusianism, I know of none that ascribe their demonstrably false beliefs to supernatural origins. As such, this entire thread belongs somewhere other than in the theology forum.
I would argue that it belongs in the silly claims forum, as your claims are silly and historically false, but I am not an administrator. It is clear that this thread should not be in the theology forum. It may be appropriate in the Physics and Mathematics forum, if only as an example of an utter lack of understanding of economics.
