Episode 69

Was Thanos the Good Guy?

We continue discussing the overpopulation myth that still hasn't died.

We start with some 21st-century statements from the infamous Paul Ehrlich, proving that he hasn't recanted his failed prophecies of overpopulation fearmongering.

Next, we review an article from Forbes that tries to convince the world that Thanos, the supervillain from the late Marvel Avengers movies really did nothing wrong. According to this article, Thanos was really the guy good and the Avengers were the bad guys.
