Strict Population Control
The time has come to make a radical change. The world’s population is increasing at a swift rate. The world is already overpopulated; there is not
and will be enough space or resources for this ever increasing population of ours. There are currently 6.44 billion people sitting on this chunk of
earth, 6.44 billion people who need to breathe, eat, drink and defecate. That is 2.8 quadrillion liters of water used per day, 290 million kg of waste
defecated per day, 32 trillion liters of oxygen breathed per day, and 720 million kilograms of food eaten per day. Do you think the world will be able
to support us in future generations?
But the numbers given where an average, a abstract sum and division between the people that have a lot and those that have nothing. We must first
find a way to stop the rapid growth of poverty. Poverty and illiteracy are a growing problem that leads to overpopulation. 30 percent of the world
population is currently unemployed, that is 1.9 billion people without a job. 800 million people suffer malnutrition and hunger. And 2.8 billion live
with less than 2 dollars per day. These are hard hitting facts. How can we eliminate this?
The world population increases by seventy three million and four hundred and eighty five thousand and eight hundred and ninety seven humans each year.
This must stop, the worlds population must decrease dramatically. 64 million people die each year but 1.3 billion are born. This must be inverted
somehow. In 1979 Maoist china established the one child policy, where only one child was allowed per couple, this policy helped tremendously to stop
the harsh increase in china’s population. A similar policy must be implemented on the rest of the world.
The policy will be as the following, depending on your annual income, and a history of this income, it will be evaluated whether you can have
children, and if you can have children, how many you would be able to have. This reasoning is logical, because if someone does not have the money nor
ability to take care and sustain a family one should not have a family. Ways to affirm this policy will be mandatory sterilization or legal abortion.
Such drastic methods must be employed if we want our children to make it. If this policy is applied poverty and overpopulation will be technically
In conclusion, a strict birth bearing policy must be implemented in the world to stop the catastrophic growth of the population.
