OCALA, Fla., September 8, 2014 — America keeps growing, though not in a good way. Our economy isn’t large enough to include everyone, hence a perpetually high official unemployment rate and an even greater number of those who have either given up looking for work or settled on jobs which don’t make ends meet.
While upper and middle class family sizes are perhaps the smallest they’ve ever been, those mired by generational poverty have children whose costs cannot be met without public assistance. Making matters worse is that many of these folks are illegal aliens. None of this even begins to factor how welfare programs are designed to offer increased benefits should an enrollee have more kids.
Forging a path through this madness can be a tall order. Californians for Population Stabilization eagerly takes on the challenge. The organization, commonly referred to as CAPS, is at the forefront of rekindling a national dialogue on population issues. This is especially difficult since, these days, both the left and right generally cringe at the mention of “overpopulation”.
Interestingly enough, denying the existence of population sustainability is one of the few, if only, things that modern-day leftists, rightists, and libertarians seem to agree on,
Leon Kolankiewicz has built a career around preserving America’s natural resources. An environmental scientist and wildlife ecologist, he brings inconvenient truths to the forefront as one of CAPS’s senior writing fellows. He also serves on the group’s advisory board, having played a decades-long role in the population stabilization movement.
Kolankiewicz shares his views about a topic which deserves far more attention on the next Cotto & Company; a new thirty-minute-or-so online radio program featuring independent voices who shape our society. Regardless of partisan registration, political philosophy, or personal worldview, the goal is sharing diverse, and often innovative, ideas that we all can learn from.

Listen to last weeks show, Civil Rights in 2014 with Allan Brownfeld & Dr. Paul Gottfried:
What sort of legacy has the Civil Rights Movement given America? Two men who not only know a great deal about the Movement, but lived through it are here to share their views.
Allan C. Brownfeld is a veteran journalist who, though specializing in Middle Eastern affairs, has covered race relations for decades on end. The American Council for Judaism’s publications editor, he has played a tremendous role in supporting black conservatism and dedicated much of his youth to active participation in civil rights reforms.
Dr. Paul Gottfried is an outspoken paleoconservative intellectual who is the recently retired Horace Raffensperger Professor of Humanities at Lancaster’s Elizabethtown College. His observations of the human condition have generated both accolades and animosity. Having befriended such figures as Richard Nixon and Herbert Marcuse, the Doctor’s views are not always easy to pin down. Perhaps the only constant is that he calls the shots as he sees them — with no apology
