Seriously...this makes absolutely no sense. Use a bit of logic for a minute and try to see how these 'evil rich people' would manage and accumulate their wealth without the help of their employees and laborers across the world.

Is there anyone out there who is stupid enough to think that a population reduction would be a bad thing? Anyone stupid enough to think it's a good idea to have MORE humans? Lets just keep populating until theres seven hundred trillion of us a?
The human population on this planet is far too great, it doesn't take an idiot to work that out. If we balanced our birth to death ratio so the population stayed at the level it's at right now we would be doomed, the planet can not sustain this many humans. We use too much resources, too much land for food production, we grow too much concrete and steel everywhere, the list goes on.
Anyone who thinks it's a good idea to DRASTICALLY reduce the population obviously understands that if we continue the way we are, or even stop growing now and remain the same, then NO ONE will survive. Here's something for the stupid people out there, if the planet can't sustain us, we ALL die. So isn't it better to reduce the population now to ensure the survival of our species in the future? It doesn't have to be a mass culling, even birth control laws could work, but we must reduce the population to a sustainable level.
I personally think that iff all humans lived in the same country then we could survive as a species with a population less than 2 thousand. We're clever enough to keep ourselves around without having to rely on big numbers.
2 Thousand humans, in total, worldwide, that would be better than the 6.6 billion fuc!en idiots that we have here now.
