Life is not always worth preserving
While I'm sure that Mr Myers has received a barrage of criticism, let it be said by this reader that he has struck a serious blow for free-thinking with his article on Africa.
There is a big difference between realism and racism and Mr Myers grasps that fact.
What we need is some prominent person to organise a series of concerts to raise awareness of the problem of overpopulation in an unjust world!
Short of that, we need more public figures (like Mr Myers) to question the lunacy of the proposition that life is an unqualified good in all circumstances.
It isn't. Africa proves that. And he has made a compelling case for this reality in his superb piece.
