Malthus has been buried many times, and Malthusian scarcity with him.
But as Garrett Hardin remarked, anyone who has to be reburied so often cannot be entirely dead.
The whole action of the laws tended to increase the number of consumers of food and to diminish the number of producers, was due the invention of the Malthusian theory of population.
A major fault, for example, is the fact that, along with the materialist principle, Darwin introduced into his theory of evolution reactionary Malthusian ideas.
Darwin himself recorded the fact that he accepted the Malthusian idea.
