Population control is purely that... Control, the population part is just to make a large number of people who think its needed to agree with it when
its brought up.
Ive said this before on posts about this subject and my opinion will all ways be this.
There is no need for this, if one simple thing was addressed, poverty, fix that issue and people wouldnt feel the need to have a little tribe of their
own. Its a fact the more well off a people are the lower their average family size is overall. not to mention their desire to have children is
reduced, after all look how many in the west nowdays weigh career over children, and put off starting a family untill in their 30's or 40's and for
the most part restrict their family to 2-3 children over their total life span.
As for food issues and resources, stop eating so much damn useless food and turning growing land and liveable land into useless farms for growing fing
biofuel crops and nutritionally bankrupt meat. Start replanning and building workable citys and towns that dont just sprawl all over the place, build
up, or down, hydroponics heck even Aeroponics. Harvest renewable energy sources more efficiently by using a single plot of land to do more than a
single task like every house ever built or in existence is by law and through tax funding (which is what taxs should be used for rather than having
most of em funneled into making the war machine function) has a solar collector tied into the grid on it or an arboreal roof top garden planted on it
for the family living under it along with water collection.
Or better yet, get that statistic I heard once of where on average every 1 American eats enough food per yer for 3 people down to a 1:1 ratio... sorry
to bash you lot in the US since its not just you, but the west in general, but as it is... the resource to population drain in the world is way off
balance and America has a huge hand in that.
Do even half that and we'd be fine... unfortunately its something im more and more convinced 'they' dont want to happen. Since it would mean we'd
be all working together for a change.
On a side i wonder just what sort of interplanetary progress we could make in 20 years if even half the amount of cash that gets shoved into black op
military projects, foreign wars, general military spending and propping up corrupt economic systems in every country in the world was redirected into
a world endeavor for getting our species off this rock.

Wow, thats a dangeous premise, and at what point would you think it would go from, grandparents 'voluntary' to 'mandatory' for all people based on
guidlines... lets no longer prolong the lives of the intellectual handicapped, infirmed, chronically unemployed, those with a surplus of skill sets
that arent required at the present time, genetic conditions with a potential for complications. the list can go on and on...
Whats the most effiecnt period to cut off a human, 60, 50? technically most humans reach their peak around 30 physically and mentally and start to go
down from their so lets make all people over the age of 40 are drains on society and the family and the planet...
Wait wasnt that 'Logans Run'?... if an old person wants to go let them im all for that as long as it isnt abused, im for voluntary euthanasia

We got into ecological debt earlier each year, we have to nip it in the bud now because we're not getting off this planet anytime soon, and why
should we? It's been a pretty decent place to hang out.
So just because the flats fridge ran out theres no point in trying to go out to restock since the flats got such a cushy sitting room and its been a
great place to live so far... sounds like someones to lazy to try and find more than a single solution to the problem that doenst involve offing your
other flat mates so that last slice of sofa pizza can last you a day longer.
