for city dwellers and those with access to public transport, not using a private motor vehicle would be a good start
( which reminds of the joke; "What do you call 3 lawyers at the bottom of the sea?
Answer; " A good start " )

In a way that makes sense. From dohboi's perspective those people would never take up the demand-slack if we corrupt Westerners saw the light and stopped wasting . And just started dying lol. Those people would simply ignore the now-cheap resources, energy, products and services. They are noble and would listen to dohboi's sage advice. Anyway they'll be okay eating bugs and offal, as long as we eat brown rice lolNewfie wrote:Pstarr and Ibon,
You see the problem is Dohboi is a racist. He believes that the top 10% of consumers are genetically different from the rest and all we have to do is to while out their defective gene through genocide and all will be AOK.
the counter argument is that all humans are pretty much alike and will flow I to any niche that avails itself.
Get rid of that top ~20% using ~70% of the 'earth,' and there's likely to be plenty of 'earth' left for the rest!
