    Hardin’s work, “The Tragedy of the Commons”, the population problem is thoroughly examined philosophically and logistically. The commons refers to a resource in nature shared by many.

    Before the Black Death plagued Europe during the late Middle Ages, the continent was already facing the worst. The “little ice age” had created colder weather leading to failed harvests and malnourishment, ultimately leaving most of the population either dead or susceptible to disease. In addition to this, improvements in ship design, though profitable for merchants, invited pathogen-ridden vermin to infect all they crossed paths with.

    recovery, poverty is still stubbornly high in America." Gongloff wrote. Today, millions of Americans are living on the streets with very little to live for. As the population overflows daily across the world, schools, workplaces, homes and the streets of the world will be with no room to breathe, to walk or even be alone.

In the first cartoon the beaten up man with that head which looks like the earth is a symbol for the earth, the cartoonist meant by that image to show people the bad effects of overpopulation on the earth, and that earth will no longer be able to face this problem or handle its effects.
