The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 407 of the In The Tank Podcast. Kamala Harris’ most recent gaff of suggesting the need to “reduce population” inspired the ITT crew to dedicate the entire episode to the legacy of population control. From the Eugenics movement of the 1940s-60s, to China’s one child policy of the 80s and 90s, to modern day calls to save the planet, the authoritarian left has a long history of promoting this anti-human agenda.
