I have mentioned before a Hubbert type analysis that can be applied to human population growth which is already slowing down. This predicts that in 2024 there will be a maximum at 7.1 billion people (not many more than the 6.7 billion now) after which there will be a decline to 2.5 billion by 2100. I would not be at all surprised because resources to support population are limited.
your correct that there will be an overpopulation problem, perhaps give or take when you factor in cluster bombs

Replacement fertility is the total fertility rate at which newborn girls would have an average of exactly one daughter over their lifetimes. In more familiar terms, women have just enough babies to replace themselves. The replacement fertility rate is roughly 2.1 births per woman for most industrialized countries (2.075 in the UK for example), but ranges from 2.5 to 3.3 in developing countries because of higher mortality rates. Taken globally, the total fertility rate at replacement is 2.33 children per woman. - en.wikipedia.org...
There is wide variability both in the definition and in the proposed size of the Earth's carrying capacity, with estimates ranging from less than 1 to 1000 billion (1 trillion). Around two-thirds of the estimates fall in the range of 4 billion to 16 billion (with unspecified standard errors), with a median of about 10 billion. - en.wikipedia.org...
You guys don't get it. No one in our government is going attack us with bombs- overpopulation is the weapon. It is going to reduce us to dirt-poor powerless slaves, trapped by endless seas of concrete and building- no walls necessary. They won't need walls because there will be no where to go and nothing to eat to fuel us to get there. They are going to make America just like the middle east- poor masses in two factions spending all their resources yelling and attacking other while the all powerful overlords sip tea in their villas.
china and india are examples depop are very real
I suggest you need to think a bit more deeply than this. There is nothing more threatening to TPTB than a large mob of hungry, poor people with nothing to lose. This is demonstrated over and over again throughout history.
Thats the whole idea behind welfare states; make sure that the people are at least fed and dont hit rock bottom so that the rulers can do as they please.
