so why do we keep encouraging so many babies we dont have jobs for and will soon be starving to death when the pols collapse the worlds economy

china had it right
every govt should mandate a maximum 1 child per married couple law
and put a tax of at least $250000 on them to pay for the expense the kid costs society

So what can we do about the overflooded population that already exists ? You can't have WW III - all the nuclear capability will annihilate everyone. Do we re-institute the draft for the next skirmish that involves us sticking our noses where it doesn't belong, namely another country's civil war ? What's the answer ?

we need to seriously cut back on births

when the collapse comes mar 2014 that the economists expect
billions will die of starvation
billions more from disease
hundreds of millions in the wars that follow
and we will still have a few billion people too many
but its a good start

I miss W says: "The problem's taking care of itself. Liberals have been aborting themselves out of the population for generations now. Conservatives are busy breeding happy little kids who wouldn't dream of killing fetuses."

Conservatives are busy breeding kids with uneven parts in their hair and half-smiles/half-frowns, looking like they emerged from a military academy with a bad case of constipation. And don't kid yourself - there's a good number of Republicans who take a hands-off attitude towards abortion.

Funny you should quote Jackson Browne - he's a die-hard liberal and environmentalist. It's even more amusing that you quoted a verse from a song that totally rips on conservatives.

Yep, there's a movie about that scenario already:

Idiocracy

Uneducated rednecks breed like rabbits while highly educated (and more likely to be liberals) people stop having kids and become extinct.

ImW can't even get Browne's lyrics right. The name of the song is Lawyers In Love, not conservatives.

It's a warning to us all. The really nasty truth about Darwinian evolution is that it is NOT about survival of the fittest, but instead, it is about survival of the gene pool of those who have the most offspring who survive long enough to have their offspring, and so forth. Nothing in there about quality of life or intelligence or "fitness" at all. It's all about reproduction.

If going to college and getting focused on a career and delaying child-bearing until the ovaries stop producing viable eggs causes that particular gene pool to disappear while the po' white trash girl who starts popping out babies at age 14 (and I did see a few of those at the St. Louis County Hospital as a medical student in the OB GYN clinic) ends up having five kids, then Darwinian evolution says the poor will inherit the Earth, indeed.

Me, I did my part and had three kids, above zero population growth levels. And my sister had three kids. ZPG is not for me.

jpl: Good OP, Horse! Many problems stem from overpopulation. Scientists and sociologists have pointed this out for years.

and if you force rape victims to bear their rapists' offspring, then the rapists win the Darwinian race.

The only way this makes sense is if you are pro-rape and pro-rapists.

Well, here's a video that describes the effects of birth rate on population in general. Europe is not going to be cleared out.

The population of Europe is not shrinking. The Muslim birth rate in France is 8.1 children per family (1.3 per family non-Muslim).

Yes, exactly. That's why every time a thread like this pops up I can only roll my eyes and say, Oh no, you are sooooo wrong......

It's always the well-educated liberal elite preaching the importance of controlling the world's population. And unfortunately, they never mean controlling the numbers of teeming masses of uneducated and poverty stricken poor people in the Third World, but THEMSELVES, volunteering to go ZPG by having only one kid or some such.

It's just like Nate Silver and his math for the 2012 elections - do the math - it's really easy. If you, the well educated liberal elite, stop having kids, and the OTHER PEOPLE keep popping them out at rates of 5-10 kids per female, AND the miracles of modern medicine and food production keeps all of those kids alive until they can breed also, then YOUR GENE POOL is going to quickly become extinct (or become incorporated into a new hybrid gene pool, whether willingly or by "legitimate rape") because THEY are going to outnumber you.

DRM,

China also separates the couple if they have more than one! BTW, it isn't illegal for a man to have more than one child, just a female! Most of the abortions are for the second child, when the couple is "found out"!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 9, 2012 7:16:41 PM PST
DarthRad,

The fittest also meant able to survive, as in no weaklings!

Ash : Liberals are very big on controlling the population in third world countries. Our favorite way to do that and one of the most effective is by providing educational opportunities to young women. The longer a girl stays in school the fewer kids she will have. We are also big on providing women with the ability to regulate their fertility, which also reduces the number of children they have. It's just that, unlike conservatives, we don't get ANGRY at poor people for having kids.

DarthRad says: because THEY are going to outnumber you.

Ash : In the Liberal ideal everyone is part of US, instead of there being an US and a THEM. So maybe more of US will have brown skin, but that doesn't really hold the same kind of horror for liberals as it does for conservatives.

interesting

in mongolia china limits them to 4
but counts it against the man
so if he has one by a mistress
real wife can only have 3 of them

not sure why they have a different policy
and it could change

china is going to start regulating yak herds too
the days of the independent yak herder is numbered

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 9, 2012 9:52:36 PM PST
