In my opinion "overpopulation" is a problem, especially in places where people consume more than they produce, in particular: food and water.
To my knowledge large, densely populated areas like cities are a problem, or any other region where people do not produce enough food for them and
their family to live. To my knowledge people who do not produce food are forced to buy it or starve.
Then I look to water, another life basic necessity. People who live in areas that are forced to drink either bought water, or treated water (not well
or spring water), are going to also have a problem trying to survive when they cannot find (or filter) potable water.
My points being, in today's world I do not think the Earth is incapable of sustaining its current population. The problem is that many people in the
world depend on others for food/water, and also currency, for their survival.
The population that is does not provide themselves/family with the basics: food, water, shelter, would probably be considered a leech of the planet by
the elite, and part of the "overpopulation" problem they perceive.
A solution: Don't rely on others. Grow your own food, and have a pure water source to drink nearby, that will not be contaminated by chemicals.
