The sad thing is that if we actually made coming up with that technology before another country did a priority we could actually lead the world into this new era, reap the profit and maintain our dominate standing in the world instead of being dragged kicking and screaming while letting another country take the dominate role. But, you ain't gonna be cramming people into little tiny homes and still maintain a population size needed to have a country. People will just opt not to reproduce first, more than they are now. I could get along fine in that little space, but throw in a husband and a kid or two, na, no thank you, those kids would be bouncing off the walls.

Please don't anyone get offended or mad by what I say, but honestly you'd think after centuries of the poor over breeding mostly in 3rd world countries as well as those who are brain washed into having child after child for no real purpose by/for their "religion" would actually stop, question and THINK about what they're doing and why, especially when there is SO much information out there concerning what people in First World countries already know, and who can plainly see the forthcoming burden not just for pockets of the poor and their hungry children, but for the ENTIRE WORLD and have actually taken the situation to heart and stopped reproducing at breakneck speeds and in unaffordable numbers!
You can forgive ignorance, but when religion (or even just plain ole boredom) openly and unabashedly pushes people into over breeding by banning birth control to satisfy its nefarious demands in that it (one take on their "secret" reasoning) equates to people + MORE people = more money in their coffers...now THAT'S totally unacceptable, let alone deigned as acceptable God-like action. If it was there wouldn't be such a thing as "minimum" wage, we'd ALL be making MILLIONS and donating all over the place! One instance concerning child bearing I remember reading several years back was about a few bishops from a church in S Africa who (on behalf of their church) were traveling around actively telling people in the worst areas known for huge AIDS populations to STOP using condoms because "that's BIRTH CONTROL"! The epitome of criminal irresponsibility.
I'm glad there are responsible people taking the situation with hunger and over population to heart and doing their bit to stop its spread, but the premise and argument for convincing people to take on their part and due responsibility to the entire world seems to have escaped a WHOLE LOT of them....
Ah well...if the whole world hasn't imploded maybe by midway through this century humanity as a whole will wake up and do what's right for each other and civilization as a whole....
