Many people either do not care, or fail to understand that planet Earth is finite. That the planet does not have unlimited resources, and can only sustain a finite amount of life.
In the natural environment a balance between populations is maintained by the actions of prey and predators. If this was not the case their natural habitat would be unable to sustain them, and very soon the Earth’s surface would be covered by wild animals, and plants.
Each nation has only limited resources, and generally has only sufficient to sustain a limited number of people. Underdeveloped and developing countries are often the ones which do not exercise any form of birth control, and are the ones who are always hungry, with many people getting inadequate nutrition, and often at starving point.
