Oh, this should be fun! In so many stories about the Duggars, here and elsewhere, a big theme I see is overpopulation. People are always talking about how with nineteen kids and counting, this family isn’t really helping that problem at all. Some people say that humans nowadays should stop procreating altogether because overpopulation is such a huge issue, and others say that even though it’s kind of scary, the government should be able to limit the amount of children people have to help get the problem under control. I don’t know about all that, but I do know that obviously the Duggars aren’t super concerned about this topic. But why?
Let’s guess for a minute, shall we? Let’s see … the Duggars say that overpopulation isn’t a problem because their measly nineteen kids don’t really affect the world population as a whole? The Duggars say that overpopulation isn’t a problem because “like, whatever”? The Duggars say that overpopulation isn’t a problem because the world actually doesn’t have all that many people in it?
Yeah, it’s that last one. Here’s a handy video where Michelle Duggar explains it all!
“The idea of overpopulation is not accurate because, really, the entire population of the world, if they were stood shoulder to shoulder, could fit in the city limits of Jacksonville.” That is a thing that she actually said. She just said that the entire population of the world could fit inside one city in Florida.
My brain is having some trouble really comprehending this, so I’m going to go ahead and hand it over to you guys, all right? Maybe you can make some sense of this, because I just … Florida, honestly.
