#1 The real problem with centrally-planned Malthusian population reduction programs is that they greatly underestimate the value of human beings.

The revolution is successful. But survival depends on drastic measures. Your continued existence represents a threat to the well-being of society. Your lives mean slow death to the more valued members of the colony. Therefore, I have no alternative but to sentence you to death. Your execution is so ordered, signed Kodos, Governor of Tarsus IV.
--Kodos the Executioner, from the Star Trek: TOS episode The Conscience of the King. Murdered half the colonists, maybe including an elderly Hoshi Sato, because he'd deceived himself into thinking it was the only way to ease a famine. Based on his own eugenic theories, natch.
