Well everything i have read indicates that 'overpopulation' is just another lie to make people feel guilty about doing what humans are supposed to
as basic function of being here. Countries like the USA/Japan shows( at least IMO) that culture and education( to name those which foreign powers can
least affect imo ) are massively more restrictive in creating general wealth for the citizens of that country than resources( in the ground),
political ideology or population size.
I think that with the technology available today the planet could probably sustain populations of a few hundred b
illion without the planet
suffering adverse consequences. The factors that restricts current societies from reaching these levels of wealth and general health is entirely
political and due to the restrictions implemented by those who currently , and have for centuries( if not millenia) , wield power and or control
energy and scientific resources.
Anyways i would be most interested to hear why you have come to believe that too many people ( are human intelligence not in fact the ultimate
resource and thus something worth 'producing' , even en masse?) are the problem and not in fact the solution. So feel free to expound as your
opinions have so far always served to enlighten me.
