First I'd get everyone to eat food high in Trans Fat for decades, then i'd get music out of the schools, I'd poison the media with miscellaneous meaningless stories, start a war on drugs, inflame tensions in the middle east, lend out tons of money so everyone goes in debt, encourage divorce and divide the family unit, use toxic pesticides on all the food, make the soil nutrition less, push terrible leaders into office, create draconian laws, bombard the air with microwaves, refuse to fund the space program...

Oh Snap...




No seriously,

I'd Create Cloverfield and set it loose

Yeah... Cloverfield by himself would take too much time and you'd be able to hide too long

Not nearly exciting enough for my tastes.

I'd want to be fighting the Zombies in the streets and all the mall and all that while it was happening

The creatures that drop off the monster would just make it even better because they would be too stupid to tell the difference between zombies and regular people so it would be a total free for all

And swine Flu

To be totally hellish those trying to survive would need to suffer from Rampant Diarrhea

That's good...

Your in your house...

In the distance The giant Monster is taking down buildings... Massive explosions everywhere, screams fire... smoke

Through the smoke to your window Zombies are clawing at you, you have only a BAT and your smashing away, the parasite things are just....leaping all around Zombies and people going down...

and your continually crapping your pants and nothing you take can stop it

yeah...

That's Good...

hmmmmm

Any type of sterilization program would be too contraversial Denying 3rd world countries aid would never happen. A manafactured disease would be much too hard to control, there is a chance it would mutate and get out of hand.

You wouldn't be able to kill people just to kill people, there would have to be a justification, the people of the world would have to see it as necessary...and unavoidable.

I think the easiest wat to acomplish this is by war. WWI almost wiped out an entire generation in Europe. WWII killed what 60-80 million people? These wars were fought with simple technology and only lasted 6ish years.

With todays advancements and a war that lasted 10-20 years it would wipe out a good chunk of the world. WWII turned normal people into animals because they were justified in what they were doing. You simply need two groups of people who HATE each other and see the other as the destruction of their way of life. Confronted with this mankind will kill anything and not feel guilty about it.

People would die in the actual fighting
People would stop having children.
3rd world countries would cease recieving aid and get wiped out by disease and starvation.

And everyone would feel it was unavoidable...

Anyone who is an advocate for the wanton destruction of their own species should lead by example and off themselves first.

I'd use a multi faceted attack.

First of all, I'd spend a few decades contaminating the food supply by using chemical fertilizers and pesticides that basicly destroy the soil and produce plants with much less nutrition after a few generations. Then I would also lobby to start the use of genetically modified foods, which have serious health risks, especially in the long term. I'd also put in legislation that forbids and limits organic farming and home gardens, and that all foods should be irradiated, all liquids should be pasteurized or homogenized. This would degrade the immune system and general health of most people.

Then I'd use the media to fearmonger the people with a deadly virus that would make them more submissive to the government. I'd then use the WHO to distribute mass vaccination campaigns worldwide, the vaccines would contain the ingredients to make the virus deadly, and they would also be contamined in order to maim and kill people.

This way, as the immune system of most people is degraded and their health is already compromised, the virus would have a much more deadlier effect. The vaccine would kill a whole bunch of people, and the virus would take care of the rest.

Not that depopulation would be a good thing. I would not want it to happen, but this is one way I could see it happening.

Thank you for all the replies.


For those who say it's a messed up thread to discuss, and that it is a morbid thread full of morbid replies....i agree.

Does it have to be morbid though?

Yes the term depopulation brings about thoughts of mass culls of the human species, but as many have rightly said, our species carried out it's own depopulation naturaly every day. Nobody bats an eyelid at that.

There are millions of deaths every year from malaria. So? Yet if i were to say that we are going to get rid of a million people to help the planet out, there would be uproar and rightly so.

So whilst we have 4 pages of mostly morbid suggestions of how to bring the population, how about the more positive ways (if you can call it that) of managing the amount of people on our planet?

I can only think of going down the birth control route. Not that it's a lovely option, but i'd rather be told i can't have a kid for a couple of years until the population evens out, than have my kids taken away from me.

All this said, who actualy decides if the earth needs depopulating? How do they come to these figures? Does it actualy need to be done and how do they come to this conclusion?

The way i see it, theres more than enough land for us all. Theres more than enough food for us all....although thats not exactly managed well.

The more i think about this, the more i feel it's a case of organising the planets species better, rather than getting rid of them. However whilst there are greedy people out there in charge, i don't think we will ever sort this out in a civil manner.

CX.

All this ''starve them'' or ''make a disease'' stuff is crapola.
You don't need to get tricky or prolong the agony. Just have a huge war.
Just get right down to the nitty gritty and fight for survival.
Some live. Some die.
We're due for a big war any day now.

Hey I got it....

We build a really long bridge out into the Pacific

One from California

and One from China

and all the MEN in the world except for me and a few friends whom I get to decide not to number more than 100...

All jump off into the ocean

Yeah, guys who want to depopulize the world, don't kill yourselves. Not the smartest of ideas. As for your idea of depopulizing the world, I disagree with you. That's selfishness to the extreme. I'm sure I don't have to mention these words to paint the picture either: sick, disturbing, wrong. Anyone who really generalizes the thought of this can easily see the resemblance to Unit 731 and the Holocaust. I know people will never stop killing people but for the love guys, stop thinking of ideas about mass genocide!!!

How to depopulate earth? thats easy, load millions on space ships and bring them to other unpopulated planets...

just my 1,5 cents

Well I think if we just keep going in the direction we're going now, we will end up where we're .ed and I figure, Afghanistan, million dead in Iraq perhaps Iran and those palestinian pains in the asses, we are already doing our part morever With Obama's national health and eugenics plan coupled with his funding of on demand late term abortion executions worldwide, makes me wonder what you think we have been doing all these years. Defending our freedom and promoting democracy?

I agree with other posters that the idea of depopulation is a horrific idea. I would not be in favor of killing anyone off unless they were of course trying to kill me or friends. I do believe if you took a lot of people off of this planet it would set mankind back instead of the opposite like a few believe.

Many may not have noticed that since the population has exploded, so has our science and technology and the rate at which we are discovering new things. It takes a mass of people to get enough resources to enable people to specialize in different fields. If you wiped out too much of the population, they would end up having to grow their own food or tend to other jobs they wouldn't have before if specialists were able to grow it for everyone or were so efficient that others can do their own thing as well.

All the mass jobs that ordinary people do serve a function in society. The poor may do the more labor intensive jobs tending to the fields, garbage collection, etc. etc. that others would not want to do. If these people were gone, then some of the middle class people would be forced to do the work since it has to be done. If it was automated with expensive equipment, that would drain resources that could have been used much better elsewhere. If a lot of the middle class is suddenly gone, then the number of specialists a society can support is reduced as well. Our rate of development of technology growth would be reduced. The exponential rate of our growth in knowledge would be reduced. Wipe out too much of the population and it would be really bad.

In a more hopeful future if we had the opportunity to spread out to other Earth like planets and 10,000 people or other large groups could move to each of a billion different Earth type planets, we would have lots of new civilizations among the stars. If there were one billion Earth type planets in this galaxy but we estimated it would take a minimum of 1,000 people per planet to set up a viable self replicating civilization with enough genetic diversity, we would only be able to populate a fraction of the Earth type planets in this galaxy for now. If we lost half our population or say 3.5 billion divided by 1,000 then we could populate 3 and 1/2 a million worlds in this galaxy. This means we really are short on people because we only managed to populate less than 1 percent of the planets available in just this galaxy. Then if you add into the mix billions of other galaxies, the number of humans looks really scarce.

If you took everyone off the Earth and every human could have a whole galaxy to themselves, would it seem like you had enough humans? I would not want to be the only human in an entire galaxy and there are billions of galaxies.

You want to populate every planet in the entire cosmos?!

That will make humans so common that our price will plummet.
We need to stay rare and pricey.
Thinning the herd make economic sense.

There are likely trillions of planets in just this galaxy alone. A tiny fraction maybe one billion I'm guessing may be Earth like planets. If they aren't already inhabited, why not have them be populated by humans? Granted if there are 1 billion Earth like planets, then at the current population, there would only be a few people on each planet and many planets may lose their populations because survival is not guaranteed. I would say the smaller the population, the smaller the chance that humans would survive. Then there is also the possibility if we were cut off from knowing about all the other planets with life, then we might end up developing to a point where we just annihilate everyone on the planet at some later stage. When we are able to annihilate all humans on the planet, someone will likely talk about depopulation just like this thread here.

Until humans live on other planets and can survive there independently and have a growing civilization, the human race faces the possibility of extinction just like the dinosaurs.

It is Earth's job to populate or depopulate Earth. And very good she is at it too!

I concur with gusto.

They could even start their own religion, like Chris Korda's 'Church of Euthanasia'
www.churchofeuthanasia.org...
