It's the most propaganda kowtowing, compliant perspective.
It appears that a shocking number of folks are
A) Not reading the basics of the OP premise &/or
B) Not understanding the basics of the OP &/or
C) Not thinking through the implications of the basics &/or
D) UTTERLY terminally uninformed about the basics of our life in this era.
Therefore their propaganda compliant blathering sounds soooooo erudite while being AS cruelly uninformed, misguided and off the wall wrong as the
I'm just up briefly in the middle of my sleep but to reiterate in a summary.
1. The whole issue is ENERGY. IF, as so many of us are convinced, there is cheap or virtually free energy--then there is no population problem for the
predictable future--at least once the water distribution was well along.
1.1 The population problems THE RULING ELITE OLIGARCHY has deliberately set up and caused
would take some time to deal with.
2. The ruling elite are convinced that THEY CANNOT AFFORD to tolerate multi-billions of population.
(A) that it would threaten their remaining in tyrannical power--the sheer numbers would be too big a problem to remain that totally in control of.
(B) They have been convinced (by critters specializing in lies) that the planet cannot survive even the present population.
(C) They have been convinced that mankind cannot survive the threat of his own population increases.
3. Free or relatively cheap energy would solve food growing and transportation of food etc problems.
4. As Palo Soleri has demonstrated, is demonstrating with
in AZ, human populations can be housed much more wisely in smaller spaces with quick, easy, short transportation access to food growing and wide open
recreational spaces. Arcosanti is designed to eventually house about 5,000 people with no job, home, restaurants, theaters etc. more than a 10 minute
walk from any other. China is looking into his city designs seriously.
5. China plans to engulf, conquer, take over Australia and make the desert bloom for her large population even with currently above the table
6. We have had the atomic generating capacity with much better designed, safer and less polluting designs for decades--that the oligarchy has
PREVENTED being built--mostly at all but certainly in any significant greater numbers.
7. The arable land is plenty for several times our current population, at least. Throw in many innovations in growing food already in and out of the
trial stages and the multiplication factor is enormous.
8. The blight of the cities is preventable and curable. See Arcosanti above.
9. Poverty has long been preventable. The oligarchy has long had an investment in cruelly maintaining masses of poor for a list of reasons. Part of it
has been their greed. Another big part has been their !!!CONTROL!!! freak compulsions and justified fears that more better off people would threaten
their power and control.
10. This is all a moot point anyway. The oligarchy is slated to murder more than 3 BILLION people within 1-12 years by my estimation. I'm somewhat
skeptical that the high tech society elements will survive well at all. Certainly the oligarchy will no longer be around after Armageddon but they
don't realize that. They think they will win that war with their critter help.
11. IF FOLKS do not see the above; &/or
are not well informed enough to realize the facts of the above
then their arguments are based on lies, deceptions, nonsense from the same elite that have been setting this situation up for at least 400 years, and
probably more than 2,000 years. It doesn't matter how erudite, scientific, well calculated etc. the blather is--it is still hollow blather based on
false foundations, false premises, false logic, and false conclusions.
That just happens to be the facts.
