Glenn Reynolds accuses me of quote doctoring, linking to this utterly conclusive proof by JF Beck:
Lambert himself engages in selective out-of-context quoting in attempting to refute Berlau’s assertion that Paul Ehrlich advocated the forced sterilization of all Indian men who had fathered three or more children. Lambert reckons this is what Ehrlich wrote:
A few years ago, there was talk in India of compulsory sterilization for all males who were fathers of three or more children.
Hell, for all I know Ehrlich’s next sentence says, “I agree”. Regardless, if Berlau is guilty of quote doctoring, so is Lambert, at least according to the criteria established by Lambert.
You see, in Glenn Reynolds’ world, to prove something is true, no evidence is required — you just have to want it to be true. Possibly explains why, according to Reynolds, things in Iraq have just kept getting better and better since the war started.
Oh, and the next sentence in Ehlich’s book is:
Ignore for a moment the socio-political problems that would be raised by such a program.
