purges throughout the ages
supercycles of free parenting, free enterprise, and privacy rights
. the world has been, and continues to be,
an agonising replay of unchecked growth,
invasions, enslavements, and mass murders;
empire after empire:
war, slavery, and property rights
have been our only birth control .
. capitalism too has a totalitarian tyrant:
private parenting is decreasing the value of labour
by having supply grossly exceed demand .
… but what of the long history of purges?
the only way to fight over-breeding invaders,
is by over-breeding to replace their kills;
hence, the ultimate tyrant is the lack of progress
in replacing human soldiers with other defences .
