Marx's argument against Malthus was aimed at what he saw as apologetics
for English political economy.  The poor were poor because they had too
many children, not because of the fundamental nature of the system.
However, Marx shared much with those political economists, not the least
of which was the belief in indefinately expandable resources.

At this stage, to pretend that we are living in a world of finite
resources is to deny reality.  A "Marxist" who believes in unlimited
baby-making has fled the corpse of Malthus only to hop into the
political sack with the likes of Jerry Falwell and the Pope.
