No need for a 2nd line.

Your title is vague, and misleadingly provocative.

The article explains (although heavily weighted with a pro-religious bias) that Ted Turner's suggestion was merely to adopt a "One child per family" concept for the next 100 years. On a voluntary basis.

Not sure how he worked out that "math"...and of course, such an idea is ludicrous to the extreme, when you consider the vast differences in cultures around the planet, and the absolute impossibility of voluntary compliance, and shared concerns, across that huge gulf.

Possibly the old guy is beginning to lose some of his acumen, as he ages....because, surely, the increasing Human population on this planet can still be managed with the continuing advancements in technology that are certain to occur over the next century. So, his "one-man's opinion" doesn't seem very well thought-out.....

.....however, despite the (perhaps unintentional?) implication in the thread title, he no-way, no-how advocated any sort of active elimination of existing individuals....hope that was not meant to be inferred, here.

He's just telling you that one way or another it is going to happen.
Get ready for some overpopulation propaganda to get everyone hyped up on the idea.
In the meantime, there will be big wars, droughts, famine and disease to move things along.

I really wonder why they waited so long for this. It should have been started 100 years ago.

Oh, dear:


You really don't know who he Ted Turner is and his FAR Left Wing views don't you?


I know of him, very well....he hasn't exactly been a shy wallflower all his life.....

And, what's wrong with left-leaning views? Oh yeah....that "source" linked in the OP.....well, I have a great deal of problems with their FAR Right Wing agendas.....I'll take a moderate "Left" over the destructive and non-logical religious idiocy of the "Right" any day.



But, Ted Turner does have some tasty menu items in his restaurants.....Buffalo Burgers, Yum!!:

Ted's Montana Grill

Imagine that!! A "FAR Left Wing" who eats meat, and is not a vegetarian? Wow, the "Apocalypse" must be just around the corner.....

Is it possible he is the originator of those Georgia stones? He has the money and it sounds like he has the philosophy.

There are too many people in the world though...

We live like ants, insects or in the worst case bacteria. People won't be happy until one is pooping and another is waiting downstream to use the waste as lunch.

The world can only handle so many people, and it's unfortunate that we have to push it to the brink before making that realization.

Might as well let hitler win the F****** world? Any of those who would rather have the disabled vets and people who in the past saved you....put to death....by any governmental force....Want them to die.... I think that person is evil and belongs in hell with hitler..The abyss....of pain and suffering......


And to the aliens/angels....those above this earth...... We have gained consciousness
to the point where we should not be treated like a cow......or a sheep.

I don't recall myself calling for anyone to be put to death. And even Turner referenced a 1 child policy which doesn't ask for anyone to be killed either. Rather, it should come down to responsibility of people having children, and personal family planning.

But yeah, let the world overpopulate itself, and when you see videos of starving kids in third world countries you can shut off the TV. And the ghettos in your city, you can take a detour. So who gives a *snip* right?

Seven billion people: Reduce population by one Ted Turner.

Okay, here goes.... I believe in population control and eugenics. Now, for all those who want to respond "Start with yourself", yeah, no. How about a rational and civilized discussion on the topic? I, for one will never advocate the death of any individual, let alone any persons in any number. So anyone saying, even implying the sentiment of "just kill yourself if you feel that way" will be promptly ignored.

Now, my beliefs are that we, as a species do not need to propagate 'just because we can'. I am not even adverse to a family having multiple children... so long as they can take care of them. It is a matter of responsibility. And until the day comes that not a single child dies of starvation or dies due to lack of medical care, you will not change my mind.

Next is eugenics. I only believe in voluntary eugenics. Any responsible couple should be able to procreate as well as anybody else. I do not believe in forced sterilization either. That is just wrong. To those that say breeding by choice is wrong, I say breeding by beer is just as wrong.

So, in a nutshell... No forced death of any living individual. A more responsible view on procreation. Provide equal health and sustenance to those living. Voluntary eugenics by those willing.

So, hit me with your best shot... and let's be civilized.
