Today, there are more than 7 billion people living on earth. For the global elite, that is problem number one. The vast majority of us don’t spend much time thinking about global population issues, but for many among the elite it is an absolute obsession. Many of them truly believe that you are ruiningtheir planet and they desperately want you to stop reproducing so much. Among the elite, the belief that the world is grossly overpopulated and that this is causing most of our major global problems crosses all political, cultural and social boundaries.
In fact, one scientist recently estimated that a child born in the United States has a “carbon legacy” 55 times greater than a child born in India. The elite are convinced that if they can reduce the global population far enough and get the remaining people living on earth to switch over to “sustainable lifestyles” that they will be able to save “their” planet.
1. MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500,000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE
The overpopulation myth is just that, a myth, if you don't look at our economic situation.
George Soros is the individual who paid for the Georgia Guide Stones. The only "elite" who want people to stop making babies are the communists, national socialists, and other tyrannical scum. It is the same, tired, old marxist crap.

Under the current economic system, growth is not sustainable.
In order to sustain the population at its current level changes need to happen.
Changes most in the western world will not want.
Planed obsolescence in products need to stop, long term sustainable products.
Better distribution and transportation methods...
An almost socialist attitude toward staple goods for survival ie food, water...
Baring that, you know the "hard" way of fixing the problems, you could always go the easy way and de populate.
Think about the last time you went to the grocery store, products costing the same and coming with less, more filler products like Pink slime, these will be come the norm as the pop continues to grow.
Humanity needs to grow responsibly otherwise we are all screwed.
I Love how its all the way or no way with many of these solutions, you can have a free market and not base it on the goods needed for basic human survival, the west can still have its capitalist system, just bases it on luxury goods as opposed to survival goods.edit on 16-5-2012 by benrl because: (no reason given)

Actually, the population in the US and Canada is not growing. We have an immigration problem, where the immigrants coming in are breeding out of control. In India (Asia) and other countries in the African continent, they are also breeding out of control. Third world countries in general also breed out of control. People in "western" developed nations are generally having one child, which is at least a 33% reduction in generational population. The problem is not North America, except for the stupid immigration policies. Fix that and we are at zero or negative growth which would also fix the unemployment problem. The entire situation in North America has been staged by the power money to use as a scapegoat while not examining other locations that are out of control. So where is this population problem again? Take it there. Cheers - Dave

Overpopulation is only a problem because the more of us there are, the more resources elitists must dedicate to controlling us, and keeping us dumbed down.
It wouldn't do for us to figure out who has really done the lions share of damage to the planet.
It wouldn't do for us to figure out who is behind the problems with allocation and production of resources on this planet.
It wouldn't do for us to figure out that our self-appointed faux "saviors" are the biggest cause of starvation, disease, sickness, and death on this planet. Of humans, and of animal species.
The problems that exist, exist because they want them to exist.
The only real fault average Joe or Jane has in all this, is that we buy into their BS, and we don't demand a better world than what they have given us.
We have the technology for double and triple the population. But no, we can't keep sustaining the worlds corporations and leaders like we have been. The unsustainability problem is them, not us.

And yet we wouldnt have the tech to sustain such population growth, as you say we do, without the corporations and "elite". It is all cyclical. We all have a hand in the cookie jar.

I don't care what intentions the ''elite'' might have, a decrease in the human population is a necessity.
Let's face it, there are too many of us.

Ive said for a very long time that depopulation is a very smart, and necessary, idea. The issue comes in with how it is carried out. If people simply procreate responsibly, it wouldnt be an issue.
Signs of a planned depopulation or plans for the aftermath of an unseen catastrophic event, whether natural or unnatural and the rebuilding of civilization ? To me it seems to be targeting a post-apocalypse audience or people "rebuilding" after "something" as some of the "guidelines" make no sense for this time and the area. Someone(s) certainly put some serious thought, time, effort and money into this project.
