I have many issues with de-population as a theory.. as it would mean the poor (like myself) getting vastly richer.. there is an old saying that I
repeat to often, as the poor get fewer the rest get richer..
Depopulation as a scenario means the poor can drive wages up.
Reverse the situation and over population favours the rich elite, who can drive wages down..
My money is on the elite driving forward over population so they can increase the amount of money they squeeze from the poor... and I see more
evidence of that than depopulation.
Edit to add: I am not desputing the impact technologies can have on society,
Can these things be used in other ways to harm our society, aside from the depopulation to benifit the elite??
I'll have to look see what I can find out, good thread tho, very interesting
