Thomas Malthus was a British economist in the late 1700's famous for his theory on the "principles of population". He basically said that the Earth’s population would grow beyond its capability, largely by non-Europeans, until the planet can no longer support the population. Huxley's "Malthusian Belt" was full of contraceptives for obvious reason.
