The background to write this book goes back to the past as the author of this book was undergraduate student at a German university. He confronted already at that time with the hypothesis of Malthusianism and Neo-Malthusianism. Consequently, he has written his M. A. and PhD about this hypothesis.
Fact is, the Neo-Malthusians still argue that “population explosion” (“population bomb”) in the Third World Countries for example in the African countries for instance in Ethiopia “is the cause of poverty and environmental crisis.” But this hypothesis is not supported by scientific evidence.
However, despite lack of evidence of this hypothesis, the “western” World (governments, organizations and institutions) puts the governments in the Third World Countries under pressure to introduce and implement the so-called family planning, i. e. birth control in these countries allegedly to solve poverty. In addition, the majority of the Mass Media in the “western” World publicized this hypothesis and influenced the opinion of the public to believe in this hypothesis.
But the fact that the author of this book lives in Germany and in Ethiopia that he observes and conducts empirical studies in both countries concerning political, economic, social, ecological and cultural developments of both countries, that poverty and environmental crisis in the African countries for example in Ethiopia are not caused by “population explosion” (“population bomb”). According to Marietta Slomka,“Ethiopia alone could feed easily the whole continent of Africa and even could produce bread for the world.” (Slomka, M. (08.02.2011): “Mein afrikanisches Tagebuch: Reise durch einen Kontinent im Aufbruch”).
