"Malthus fence"

I passed a construction site today as I took a walk. It was fenced and the fences were clearly labeled "malthusgjerdet", directly translated "the malthus fence". This amused me greatly. I had this subconscious expectation that a Malthus Fence was a physical or symbolic barrier between areas of stable population and areas of unchecked breeding. The last refuge of the competent, so to speak. Seeing it on a construction site was kinda surreal.

"One day we will tear up the Malthus Fence, and claim all the treasures of Nova Roma for ourselves and our children!"
"SKAAAAAAL!"
