Compared to Cuivienen, Hildorien was not as far off from the North-west of the old world, east of the sea; but the point is still valid. Something often overlooked is that it was Elves that were not extremely numerous nor very prolific. Compared to Elves, Men bred like rabbits . No Elf in the legendarium was it said to have had 7 children, let alone sons other than Feanor. Generally Elves had one or two offspring, occasionally three or four. It could be said that the Orcs were more like Men than Elves in this respect. I also think, based upon memory, that the Orcs were more debased than evil and in a sense less inherently evil than evil Men. Orcs were driven by hatred of others, including other Orc tribes more than anything else.

On planet Earth, there is a try.
Indeed, in a world and life full of change, the only constant is human nature (A is A, after all :P).
We old vets need to keep in mind those who come after us.
