Hi Shos, in answer to your post: environmentalism, Overpopulation, Qualitatively and equality.
"observe that in all the propaganda of the ecologists amidst all their appeals to nature and pleas for 'harmony with nature' there is no discussion of man's needs and the requirements of his survival. Man is treated as if he were an unnatural phenomenon. Man cannot survive in the kind of state of nature that the ecologists envision i.e., on the level of sea urchins or polar bears"
While the empowerment of women and the provision of reproductive health services undoubtedly reduces the birthrate in the poorer countries, there is a much more serious problem facing the developed countries of our world. We have based our entire society on "competition" and the "profit motive", which has worked well during times of increasing demand for goods and services. However the crucial factor for its success lies in those two words, "increasing demand", which is completely contradictory to a reduction in our population.
Thinking Qualitatively is aimed at participants who are new to qualitative inquiry, from all disciplines, including graduate students embarking on a research career, professionals who find that they need to do qualitative research, and faculty who wish to enhance their qualitative skills. Though this is an introductory program, a basic understanding of the goals and practices of qualitative inquiry is expected.
Discrimination is also one of the many factors operating against equality. But even if all human beings behaved like saints toward one another, the other factors would still make equality of income and wealth virtually impossible to achieve.
