Orwellian high school preaches population control to students
“It’s up to you — no more than two.”
This dystopian command was posted by staff inside an Indiana high school as a warning to students that if they grow up to have large families, they are contributing to overpopulation — a pseudoscientific hoax pushed by some liberals.
The message was posted on a banner above lockers at Northview High School in Brazil, Indiana. It read in full: “Zero population growth. It’s up to you — No more than two.”
The banner also has bunches of smiley faces representing tens of millions of people. The faces sit in boxes that mark the passage of time, and the implication is that in the future, there will no longer be room for more smiles.
Fr. John Hollowell, a Catholic priest and blogger, noticed the banner when he walked down the hall. He posted a picture of it to his blog.
“We might as well have Nazi flags hanging in the hallway,” wrote Hollowell. “What does that say to kids from families bigger than two kids? Reproduction is a problem?”
