My point with this is that we could spaciously move the world population to a single continent(not just Australia)
I just don't understand how you think NEVER implementing a birth control program is realistic? China has already done it. They had to. Who could say that they haven't saved themselves by doing so. This part of your argument is especially troubling for me.....I mean really it's a matter of cause and effect....what do you think will happen if people relentlessly reproduce......?
People want to blame selfish people for reproduction, because they know thats the reality.
It's not silly...I asked a girl once why she wanted to have a baby and she said....because she just wanted a little version of herself....that's kind of sickening really....
True. But it's because of selfishness too, especially in places like latin america, and the USA. Many places in asia too. Everywhere most likely....go take a look around...
But overpopulation is an issue anyways.p
All that waste isn't coming from the repressed nations you keep referring to, it comes from first world nations. One child in the US will create far more waste than one child in rwanda.
ah captain obvious, knew you'd show up in this thread somewhere....
so people who see selfishness as a problem sicken you?
you're saying you're pro selfishness then?
Here in Australia we are trying to boost the population. But personally, I like the notion of 21 million people in an area the size of the USA.
FYI, most of your arguments were spoken about 150 years ago, then again about 65 years ago, then again with WWF now.
as population goes up geometrically, so does productivity.
It's not that population control won't happen, it's that we DON'T WANT IT TO happen.
If the worlds most powerful people wanted you to jump off a cliff then you would probably do it.
People reproduce far more in developing nations.
Either developing nations either have ethnicities that are selfish
these countries have social, historical, environmental, economic or technological reasons that cause these people to reproduce at such high rates.
So instead of fixing these underlying problems, these people want to limit and CONTROL people while they live in mere poverty, blaming THEM (for being war torn for example) because they are "selfish"?
If the billionaires of the world want to blame people for doing what god created them to do, then they have only themselves to blame.
A girl... as in... a 9 year old? If not then the correct terminology would be women.
The majority of industrialized nations have stagnant populations, actually.
As the Darwin family, Huxley family, the IUCN, WWF (lead by former S.S officer), 1001 club, and Eugenics Education Society also known as UNESCO, all said, decades, or even over 100 years, ago. The most scary part is that they even got attention, and then they managed to commit or play a part in all types off atrocities, forced sterilization using microwaves, for example, which are just examples of why government forced population control should not happen.
Rwanda is not close to the Pacific Ocean? In any case letting first world nations populations collapse would well, collapse the country.
No, but Internet experts spouting off personal attacks bothers me.

me too, which is why i advocate reducing populations all over the world. It just makes sense. It what a responsible society would do.
and yet, china has been implementing population control for decades, which tells us, that times do indeed change, and that overpopulation is real. China is just ahead of everyone else.
