The world population is already being thinned out by nature in the form of the HIV epidemic.

Zero population again?

I got a letter just after I graduated college inviting me to join a group that advocated reducing the population. If we do this then we will all be RICH! No one will have unmet needs, because of all the extra STUFF we will have and there will be no POOR people anymore.

Of course, they forget that there will still need to be ditch diggers and janitors. There will always need to be people lower on the totem pole. TANSTAAFL.

I would self 90% welfare recipients. Medicaid as well unless its a child and mother whos working/college

illegals GONE.

Sadly this would get rid of almost all minorities in the USA and be considered racist!

Yes there are to many people on the earth, but to reduce by 1/3 isn't enough I propose 70% or more.

Of course, this was a guy to whom "world travel" meant going from Woodruff, SC to Charlotte, NC.

This thread makes me sick. This is liberal/social ideals.

When did we all the sudden become Eugenic supporters. Someone remember Hitler? Stalin?

Everyone on this earth squeezed together in one group could fit inside an average town in the U.S. We have plenty of room on this earth.

Uh, actually everyone on the Earth could fit into the US, with a population density equivalent to Los Angeles..
Link Posted: 3/28/2009 1:21:23 PM EDT
Yep

China + India + Highly infectious & deadly plague = 1 billion dead, easy.
Supervolcano popping....ouch.
Sizable asteroid impact...ouch again.

It really is just a matter of time, far too many people to feed without good crop yields(and cheap energy to farm them, make fertilizer, transport, maintain infrastructure..."Green" energy policy = Nations relying on the industrialized worlds massive food surplus will starve)

This does sound like crazy talk, but after my summer vacation to California, and waiting in LONG lines at seaworld, disney, and every other thing we wanted to do, the thought did cross my mind. I remember being in the wave pool at knox berry farm, and not being able to move. scary feeling. Things were the same on my vacation to the east coast. This is why I will only live in the sparsly populated midwest. To keep my sanity, and stop thinking genocidol thoughts.

Who are you, or who am I, or anyone to decide what the population should be, or who should be "thinned"?

This is all a good idea until some Democrat in Washington, or some UN asshole from Uganda decides they need to rid the world of people like... you.

Or you get a letter from your government in the mail, sorry, but you can only have 2 children. After your second child, you and your wife will be sterilized.

The illegal Mexican family down the street will have 10 kids, but that is not their concern. Just you.

Then it's not such a good theory, is it?

Link Posted: 3/28/2009 2:27:06 PM EDT
We just need to stop feeding the people who can't feed themselves. Instead, we subsidize low to no productivity. Nature had a built in fix for this, we shouldn't fight mother nature.
Link Posted: 3/28/2009 2:38:08 PM EDT
We don't need to cull anyone. Just remove the artificial support system that guarantees the survival of the "unworthy" and the problem is solved.

One way of doing this would be to first declare the use of deadly force in the protection of life and property a natural right followed by cutting off all forms of welfare. The population in many large "urban neighborhoods" will drop quickly.

There was this guy that tried this bout 70 years ago... Didn't work out well for him.

BTW, for those of you espousing the "let nature take its course route". Well in nature, might makes right. So if you believe in allowing nature to do its work, then its not about who can work for a living, its about who is strongest. You can be a hard ass workin leopard, but when a lion or pack of hyenas walk in for your kill, don't expect them to care that you "deserve" it cause you worked for it...

Physically, that is correct, we COULD be jam-packed into a very small space, stacked one on top of the other. This would, of course, kill most of those people and would get far more than the 1/3 drop the OP is looking for. Don't know the exact size these days, but it was less than 1/2 mile square before.

ETA: not square, cubed.

The best thing we can do for the world is to cut off all aid to Africa and other foreign nations. Not only is it a waste of my tax dollars it also puts an ever increasing burden on the world. There may be plenty of ROOM on the earth for everyone but livable surface area is not exactly the problem. Food production has pretty much plateaued and we have limited natural resources to work with. Sure noone deserves to get AIDS, but the natural cycle of life should be followed. We keep these AIDS victims alive with our tax dollars and they reproduce to create even more problems for our tax dollars. Instead of having many people die over a period of time and ending many problems, we are setting ourselves up for a huge population crash which is unhealthy for the planet and future generations.

Also, I never understood the purpose of nursing homes. Lets drug seniors so much to keep their bodies functioning that they have no idea what is even happening around them. If someone cannot progress and contribute to their own survival, whats the point of being alive. I would hate to be a complete burden on the world/society and I will most definitely end it myself before I go to a nursing home (if possible).

If you think I'm a bit critical and blunt about the situation, just remember, death is a part of living...We all gotta go sometime.

The earth is too crowded? No. Get out and travel. If you do you would realize its cities that are over populated, not the earth. your question makes you sound like someone who condones mass murderer.

What caused you chose 1/3 of the population? Just curious because i think i remember the book of revelation saying a pestelance or something kills 1/3 of the population... so maybe your wish will come true

My point is that making any kind of enforced standard of productivity by which to judge people, is going to be incredibly shaky, at best.

i said earth because i figured once america has more room it would have more immigrants. no im not racist no i dont condone mass murder. i would condone killing pedophiles lifers in prison any illegal that commits heinous crimes assisted suicides. not keeping people with fatal diseases alive. less people means more food less global warming. less trying to find a job to pay your bills while some worthless fuck collects welfare because they dont have to work. 1/3 was just a random number i picked. things of these nature just a thought i had today and wondered if i was alone oh and the men choice was comical as on arfcom we have a mostly male following and thought less men would mean a better woman toman ratio

Russia is much larger than the US and has about 1/3rd of the population.


The earth could EASILY support 4 times the current population , people in cities have no clue how much room there is out there.

I live 25 minutes from a top 20 metro area, and while driving a few minutes from home today I realized when I looked in any given direction I could only see a total 1-2 homes in the distance.
