if you look closely at the range on that chart between, say, 1920 and 1945, you can see that the population of the world had virtually leveled off. Between the two World Wars, the depression, the Spanish Flu epidemic in 1918 and Hiroshima, we, as a collective "we" had managed to lower the population of the world to almost an even birth/death ratio. Men on a battlefield are a double problem, arent they. One, they die, and two, they don't go home to produce the next generation.
