There is plenty of land on earth for everyone to live.
There is plenty of power for everyone. Solar
There is plenty of water for everyone. The sea/desalinization plants.
There is plenty of food. Start looking up how much food the world throws away daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.

Population. There are several countries with an aging population. In several decades, they will have population decline.

Even if the earth's population doubled to 14 Billion in a few years, we would still have plenty of land, power, water, food for everyone.

There is no shortage of resources.


This is where you're wrong.

Where is the resource coming from to keep 14 billion people happy??


But what do you need to keep them happy? Education can be virtually free with the internet. Housing/warmth/cooling We can do that with solar power. Food and water. We have enough of that for trillions of people. Distractions TV/Netflix/cheap smart phones. Opportunity. There is always hope and opportunity for advancement in the world.

I don't see where I'm wrong. Give me an example.

While flying at 10,000 feet I noticed that, other than cities, that buildings and homes are almost always jetting out of trees and there is plenty of room. There is alot of "unused" space. I have no idea how many of us can be supported, but there is still plenty of room.
And when it is economically feasible recycling-geothermal-solar will take on the main source of energy. Solving a ton of issues. I wish we didn't throw away anything-but right now we are still finding our way.


There is a lot of wasted space. When I see industrial estates and business parks, every building has a massive car park, a several meter border of neglected green space. And this repeats for dozens if not hundreds of units. Added together that's enough space for dozens of homes.

It was documented in "The Exploding Metropolis". There are millions of cubic meters of "dead space" in a city. Gaps between buildings, arches under freeway overpasses. Some work as firebreaks, but others just pick up all sorts of junk. They even found an aircraft engine in one of these spaces. Even a strip-mall wastes space, because in Europe, we actually build apartment blocks above those shops. It allows people to do shopping without using a car and shop workers can live locally.

We could simply cut off immigration and our population would shrink. We are long past the days when we had large families to provide the labor for farms. I know a father and son who work almost 30,000 acres of crops by themselves with modern equipment. Everything they grow goes to other countries, it could just as easily stay here and that's the case with much of the food produced.



Immigration is the only reason the US population is growing. I see it more and more with the younger generations that they do not want kids and if they do might have 1 or 2. Many do not want to even marry though they are a couple for decades and kids are not a part of their life plan. I think of the old saying...every kid is a Ferrari in your drive way and that might be a low ball amount today.

Maybe a roof that didn't put you in rigid
bondage to it for so long you live to
own it. Maybe a roof that you get because
that's what human beings deserve. Oh
but that wouldn't serve greed would it?
How would others get fat? We could

I completely agree people need to breed less.
We live in a conflicting world view:
On the one hand we have a national and global economy that relies on growth, hence more consumers. On the other hand we are trashing our environment because of the demand.

Do we want this to be on every beach in the world:

Are you ready to die fighting for your cause knowing the MSM will demonize you for your actions? Why do you think those of us willing to fight and die to protect our nation are sitting back watching those who are violently trying to destroy it become more emboldened?

Remember the battle of Lexington and Concord!

These so called Communist Revolutionaries don't have a clue as to the world of hurt they have coming when the sleeping giant awakesQ

I think with much of the world it's a game of catch up with the West.

I read an article once about farming families in India needing large numbers of children for labor just to survive. We can't tell them hey, you need to starve and stop having kids. Their reality is very much like our reality in the early 1900's.

My father born in 1913 was the younger of 11 kids on a remote ranch and in family histories I've read the first hand accounts of how hard it got after they lost all but 5 kids to the Flu pandemic. They needed their large family to thrive. My mother was youngest of 12 raised on a farm. They literally hired out their kids to work in the fields just to eat. That is the reality of much of the world still today.

I agree but it will only get better in them not needing slave labor that you make... That is my point, as India comes on being more advance the Government will step in and force population control while people will see that kids become more of a cost than profit.

We also should see a pandemic too at some point the world is too small now to keep that kind of stuff isolated.

I'd hope a pandemic is not in the cards, but I agree. It's bound to happen.

"I think with much of the world it's a game of catch up with the West."

That's probably very true but when or if the rest of the world we're ever to catch up would it even be sustainable?

Imagine the energy demands alone which would be significant, never mind the rest of the associated supply and demand issues to contend with?

The fact of the matter, or so it seems to me, is that we enjoy the luxury of our first world nations at the expense of the rest hence their ambivalence and general discontent regarding our way of life.

No wonder they don't like us or wish to reside within our respective borders, when we exist at there expense, and keep on bombing the poor souls from a distance.

I think you are closer to the truth in this regard. I would say that once all cultures accept birth control, and they will eventually, that our population will start decreasing dramatically.

I think you get the muslims to change their minds on women and so on and it could change dramatically within 2 generations. In most western as well as China and Japan, birth rates are so low that people can't even replace themselves.

Bad for real estate value and building booms....

Who knows? so much chaos in a human foot print.


The kicker with that is, the globalist are importing all of the heavy breeders into Western Society all the while supporting the Western world to support abortion with the reason not enough of the western women are breeding!!! Now I might not be the smartest apple in the bunch, but you see where I am going with this?



Don't you know better than to bring up facts? It's not good for anyone.
