Unfortunately the population isn't problematic with just child births but also people living long lives. In that case like a previous poster said war would be a more optimal approach towards population control. For anyone misunderstanding what I am trying to say my point is unless humans can greatly improve resource control and technology population will be an issue for the future and who knows how people then will try to regulate it. No I do not advocate war.


Well I hope for one our lives get extended I mean I don't wanna die till I'm over 200 personally and I'll happily never have kids if it meant I could haha



You really want to live until you're 200??
man iam 35 and i feel old and broken already. I dont even want to live to be old. Dont get me wrong i dont want to die but i dont want to be old and withered and useless.
Unless in the future to can replace body parts and internal organs easier..


Yeah I would rather be alive crippled and feel like shit then be dead.

That's just how I feel it's better to be alive even if you were crippled neck down then to be dead but in the end it's each to there own.

I have thantophobia so that contributes to my opinion a lot

Ah well cant say that i have that. Everyone fears death though, at least a little.
And yo0u're still kinda young. Iam guessing that when to get closer to and beyond 30 and realize how tough life gets and how crap you start to feel that you will change your mind.
But i guess if you have kids and grand kids there's more reason to want to keep on keeping on.

When Social Justice losers start complaining it's unfair they can't give birth so other woman shouldn't either.

It doesn't work. Google all of the nightmarish scenarios that have happened in real life in China - the biggest and worst childbirth restriction practitioner on the planet. It has backfired on them in so many ways. It's almost comical.

The issue was the implementation, not the concept.

The new "two child" policy is a better implementation.

Actually, because boys are preferred to girls over there, and they are limited to two children, many times, a girl child is dumped, abandoned, sold or killed out-right. This because the couple want to have a boy child. That's one issue. The other issue is that a mother with two children already, is forced to have abortions, as late as the trimester. Or their third child is taken away by government officials.

That is China's "better implementation of the "two child limit."

Population is NOT a problem. Our planet can handle a whole lot more than we have now. Resource management is the problem. We currently produce enough food to feel 10 billion people each year and we only have 7 billion people on this planet. Demographers estimate that at least 20 billion people lived on earth between the years 8000 B.C. and 0 A.D - so it's a fact that our planet can handle a lot more people than it currently has. Also plankton make up 3 times more biomass than all 7 billion humans combined. Right now we could literally fit the entire human race in New Zealand and the rest of the planet would be wide open.




Correct, just imagine if the world went vegetarian we could support many, many more people. Consider 47% of soy and 60% of corn crops are used for animal feed in the US alone. A little basic biology you lose 90% of the energy in each level of the food chain, so only 10% of the energy that went into making plants become animals and then we humans only get 10% from eating the animals. How many more people could we support if we cut out the middle man and just ate the plants?

I haven't eaten a gas station hot dog in my life before, and I really want to taste it.
Unfortunately, none of the gas stations in my area sells them.

I used to eat a lot of cooked food from street vendors back when I lived in my country. So, I thought eating a gas station hot dog would a similar deadly experience.

Maybe they already are. Maybe that was the whole point of the Zika Virus, to scare people to not have children for the next few years.

Well considering i can't eat many plants and don't eat vegetables or fruits due to sensory issues and other food issues and i can't stand soy i think i'll remain a meat eater for life :sweatingbullets:.

Not everyone will ever go vegetarian can or would that type of thinking is wishful at best.
