The Irish were viewed by the English as a rabbit like pop., mainly
because of their popery.

bc, thinks the people who ate Soylent Green didn't breed much, but it's
been some time since I viewed the movie.

p.s. I do remember a proposal to lace food for the starving "rabbits" w/
oral contraceptive. The idea being it would be self limiting. Would
make an interesting "Sharks and Soles" maths. analogy. Now, what w/
climate change, etc. a species crash would be a more accurate result.
