The same people caught up in Panama Papers are the ones who own the newspapers and other Media resources. No wonder it is not talked about.

It wasn't all rich people! Bill Gates, for instance, wasn't named in the Panama papers.
(Not that this takes away from what you're saying.)

No really, he did give it to charities.

That he controls. (tax loophole)

Yes, the same Bill Gates who's working on solving diseases and comes from a family of eugenicists.

Bill Gates the eugenist?

The super billionaire who wants to reduce populations with vaccines?

Excellent proof by assertion. Ten out of ten, would recommend.

That's a dead link.

Let's sat I believe your assertion, what is wrong with reducing population growth?

We need to focus on improving life for the people who are already alive. Population will cap at 10 billion because after that we can't sustainably support anymore, and people will starve, more than they already are anyway.

I'd much rather we prevent people from being born in the first place, than let them be born, only to die sick and hungry.

I though population capped at 10 billion naturally without any more people starving than are already starving? Like we'll bring the standard of living up a bit, populate Montana, and it's all good.

That's what many of the projections are suggesting, yes. Of course, there might be a highly-contagious meme that changes that, but it seems that that's what's probably going to happen.

Do you have any sources for those claims?

The malthusians have gotten it wrong every time.

Also, the link is fixed. Thanks for the heads up.

And/or the LIBOR scandal or any number of other epic financial heists?

the ones that aren't hypocrites and are just rich people against high taxes I don't mind. SJWs like Emma Watson, I want them raked over coals.

So what? They dodged taxes. Big whoop. We have a government with very little integrity or legitimacy, that uses tax payer money to fund war crimes and line the pockets of the already-rich. I applaud their ingenuity.
