Your statement makes no sense, try reading it again. You've said that the easiest way to depopulate the Earth is by encouraging people to practice
'safe sex'. One promotes safe sex by telling people about 'risks', such as HIV/AIDs etc. You've actually agreed with me but without realizing
No. You're postulating that they have gone to the bother of creating a deadly virus and unleashing it into the wild just to teach kids about safe
. That's absurd on multiple levels. There is absolutely no need for that, there's more than enough compelling reasons to teach practice safe
sex without some grand conspiracy. And for how many people is the primary reason of practising safe sex to avoid HIV?
"Sure, we could
teach them safe sex to avoid the usual STDs and unwanted pregnancies, but you know what would really hit it home? If we
engineered a deadly, incurable virus to scare them into using condoms"
You need to look up what 'population growth' is, you meant to say 'birth rate' i.e. "it would only SLOW *birth rate*". More 'safe sex' = lower birth
rate. If they reduce the birth rate to below the death rate, then they start to reduce the population.
Safe sex does not equal no children. It will not depopulate Earth
Funny how countries that have access to condoms are still growing in
"Hey, you know that super evil virus we created to teach people about safe sex? How about we instead make it not
deadly, but make it highly
infectious and turn people infertile. That'd do the job much better for considerably less work, right?"
"Nah, let's go with the safe sex route, out logic is bullet proof"
"Ok, well meet me half way: can't it kill them and
make them infertile?"
"Nah. The HIV -> safe sex plan is more than adequate"
"Well seeing as we're creating a deadly virus anyway
, why don't we just use that to depopulate Earth?"
Seriously, you couldn't make this stuff up. Oh, except you just have...
