"A man who is born into a world already possessed, if he cannot get subsistence from his parents on whom he has a just demand, and if the society do not want his labour, has no business to be where he is. At nature's mighty feast there is no vacant cover for him. She tells him to be gone, and will execute her own orders."
- Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834);
