Famine isnt unique to humans

All species are subject to it everywhere in the world. When the population of any species outstrips its food resources, that population declines until once again in balance with its resources. Mother Culture says that humans should be exempt fro that process,so when she finds a population that has outstripped its resources, she rushes in food from the outside, thus making it a certainty that there will be even more of them to starve in the next generation. Because the population is never allows to decline to the point at which it can be supported by its own resources, famine becomes a chronic feature of life.

Quinn - 1977


Oh though the saints be praised, this was not a mission for glory, or for the saving of the soul, it was simply a spot on a spiral.
