Could A Limit On Kids Stop The World’s Population Crisis?

Enviroment

Listen as a KZN man shares his view on overpopulation in South Africa:

Worldometers reports that there are over 7.6-billion people out there in the world, while SA Government has reported that 56.52-million of those people reside in South Africa. These are scary statistics when you really think about it.

It got me thinking about the state of our world after receiving a voice note from an irate listener who is fed up by the state of our country and the planet.

In his voice note, he talks about how fed up he is seeing children being left on doorsteps because people can’t take care of them, which is strange because just yesterday I came across a story from Newswatch about a Glenwood woman who found a child on her doorstep.

The UN reports that the world population is expected to reach 9.6-billion by the year 2050, so if we don’t start making a change in how we live in the world, experts predict that we may eventually see a consumer collapse taking place. A statistic was published on World Clocks that read: “At current trends, the planet cannot sustain twice as many people and a 26 times larger economy.”

Currently, overpopulation is one of the biggest issues that the world faces, apart from global warming, pollution, extinction, and even mass consumption of natural resources. 

My point is that if we don’t start doing anything now to help curb the effects of overpopulation, we are going to run into some serious problems down the line.

Could a limit on breeding help? Well, I must admit that I agree with the listener who proposed this. Just like a driver’s license, I think people should also have to pass a few tests before they’re allowed to have kids.

The reality is that some people just aren’t smart enough as humans to know when enough is enough. Just last week, I met a lady who had eight children. There were three different fathers, all who weren’t even present in their lives. 

It just becomes a nightmare and a possible limit imposed will help alleviate overpopulation issues?

What do you think? Would you be for or against a limit on having children if it was imposed in South Africa? Share your comments with me.

    That boy is racist. Why not eliminate religion that preaches spread the seed instead. Or better yet pay for environmental destruction. Most couldn’t afford to live indeed. South Afrtica a problem ? Why not just be real and say energy is the problem and start by taking yours. Hehe.

    Late stage abortion……like anything before 30 years of age ….. lets do this!!!

    Gaia has no problem aborting us right off the planet and she will have to because humans are too ignorant and selfish to control their breeding.

    We have 7.5 billion, do I hear 8.25, yes, do I hear 9.4? What about 11.1? Ok, we’ve developed fusion energy and it’s really cheap. How about 12.7 billion? Ok, we’ve gone past that number. How many other large animals are there on Earth now that we have 13.9 billion in the year 2072? Just a few in zoos and circuses. Ok, how about 15 billion? Ok, we’ve surpassed that, so how about 16.3 billion. How many other species larger than a rat now? 5 and they are all livestock? Ok, now we’re talking. Just people, livestock, rats, viruses, fungi and bacteria. Do I hear 19.4 billion people? Yes, ok.

    If our species had cheap enough energy and other necessary resources, could we cover the terrestrial areas of Earth, eventually in 10,000 years have a world population of 100 billion? I don’t think people are given to restraint, as much as they are determined to have as much as they can. Give them the opportunity with cheap energy, a good wage and the Earth will blossom with billions more people, upon billions more.

    Эй, братья, пожалуйста, ударьте антиамериканскую собаку, которую я сделал из гранитного форума

    My son, I must chastise thee with the greatest of force. Cease the worship of the false prophet you identify as “supertard” for the supertard’s true identity is Whore of Babylon. The Great Whore shall forever be known as SUPERTARD, MYSTERY, BABYLON the GREAT, the FATHER of PROSTITUTES and ABOMINATIONS of the EARTH PBUH sweet.

    You must end these flagrant violations of the covenants of thy Lord and God.

    My child, I beseech thee to desist from providing solace to the great deceiver, supertard.

    Tread most cautiously, my son. To suffer the eternal damnation of hell is a period of time outside of any mortal man’s ability to comprehend.

    We have come too far with population and consumption. When I say consumption I mean our systematic situation with economy and social fabric. Our civilization cannot degrowth much and avoid catastrophic failure. The reason for this is the networks and nodes of power are high energy and have high knowledge needs. To produce high energy and the knowledge that is needed requires a very large and potent economy. An economy like this requires large populations. Such an economy on a planet like we have is disruptive of other planetary cycles and the web of life. We have been drawing down the bounty of the planet and its web of life to produce the civilization we have. Ecosystems are locally in failure and the web of life is in an extinction event.

    Continuing growth is not an option longer term. I say this with the understanding we could have a few decades left. De growth-ing is likewise problematic. If it could be done slow and over a longish period it might be possible with the right kind of wisdom guiding the process. Our current civilization does not possess the right kind of wisdom in the right places of leadership. There has been an awakening and the right kind of wisdom is now part of our vocabulary. We know what we need to do and the path forward is there. Real science has shown us the numbers and provided the evidence. We have enough awakened and enlightened individuals uncorrupted and honest that the ideas for the path forward are now mainstream with our most educated. The problem is the gap between time frame needed and the forward momentum of our civilization. This is where many of our most educated are in denial and delusional. Many want to double down on tech and avoid pain so many are awakened to the problem but not the answers. We may have a decade or two left with an economic and social system geared for growth but need a generation to degrowth to allow proper deceleration that is survivable. Degree and duration is a primary variable that determines a species survival in a shock. What we are looking at is a shock period ahead where we will shift from growth to degrowth and from population growth to a population decline.

    I have discussed consumption but the other critical part of this degrowth process is population. A Population like we have without the high energy techno aspect is still too high for a healthy planet. This is because our human agriculture and domesticated animal needs occupy too many important niches in the web of life. The waste stream too large for the planetary cycles to absorb. Our energy needs for shelter and warmth too high. Currently we have large populations in areas that cannot be supported because they are cold climates. There is not enough biomass to heat with to support large populations. There is not enough room in milder areas for these people. The milder areas are already at a population limit. Water needs are now stressed with so many people in both warm and cold climates. Techno modernism magnifies this but even without techno modernism a premodern type population of 7BIL is not supportable. Let’s review how our population got to 7BIL anyway and it was nonrenewable fossil fuels. Knowledge did not get us here. We can also say fossil fuels allowed knowledge to grow to where it is. Pre modernism which would be preindustrial revolution we had 1BIL people. That was with a rich ecosystem. We now have a planet that has been degraded. Population needs to fall by an order of magnitude in a time frame that is swift. That may not be survivable for a civilization even close to what we had in the past. This is theory because this situation has never occurred on this planet for humans.

    How do we get there? If one does the math and would like to see this happen over time with a degree that is manageable then we have to have 200MIL deaths over births for a generation. We then have the problem with a degrowth of consumption and population gap related to time frame to avoid a shock. The time element that has been lost. The time to do this degrowth of economy and population has compressed so we likely are faced with a bottleneck without a period that is manageable without a die off. Of course this is not certain so we need to get with it as quickly as possible. The 200MIL death over births is a huge mind numbing number that in itself is scary. If we could reduce reproduction by draconian methods this would help but it would not be an answer with a kind and gentle happy ending. There is likely no way to escape a bottleneck of some type at some point. The bottleneck can be mitigated and adapted to with a civilization with the right kind of wisdom. We have that wisdom but not in the right places of leadership. We are now in a time deficit position where we are extending out boundaries of resilient change leading to uncontrolled bifurcations of change that are chaotic and destructive. The planet is being degraded which is lowering the carrying capacity numbers. Climate is destabilizing and time is playing a role here. The more ecosystem destruction and carbon forcing we do the worse the carrying capacity situation. Nature will take over at some point with a natural process.

    This then points to a mentality of lifeboats and hospices. It points to regions seeking byzantine retreats to areas behind walls to the delocalization of late term civilization. There may be hope for some regions who start this process now. Much of this process revolves around proper wisdom. Wisdom in leadership and education for those who need to be led. It points to individuals who seek to be monasteries of survival for a reboot of our species post bottleneck. Those who care about truth and meaning. These situations require another conversation that is the next chapter to life. This next chapter will have new myths and a narrative based on survival not growth. This is what appears to be ahead considering science and history.

    “the web of life is in an extinction event.”

    Like DavyScum really gives a shit. Every comment is strictly for show.

  8. Davy on Sat, 17th Nov 2018 7:48 am 

    “boney joe on Sat, 17th Nov 2018 7:12 am”

    OK, lets translate this shallow one liner ad hom attack.

    Boney Juan is a dirty juan sock puppet: check
    Did boney juan read the article and comment: check
    Did he choose to make an educated comment on either the article or comment: nope
    Is boney juan more dirty juan noise: check

    Is the article relevant to discussion of PO and the potential for collapse: check
    Is my comment on topic and thorough” check
    Is the comment longish: check
    Is a topic like the article present demand some longish comments: check
    Is the comment bias, discriminatory, or agenda driven: nope
    Is boney Juan a fraud and a fake: yeap

    If we had a moderator we would at a minimum have policies and procedures to limit socks and identity theft. They are lies and gaming with what should be a serious discussion. The lack of policy and procedures invite personality dysfunction like we see with boney juan. Making the best of this Wild West situation means constantly fighting fakes and frauds like boney juan. CHECK

    If you keep using my name I am going to keep fucking with you, Exceptionalist.

  10. JuanP on Sat, 17th Nov 2018 10:24 am 

    Why don’t you grow up, Davy, behave like a normal adult, and stop using infantile nicknames, stealing identities, lying, and bullying others?

  11. Davy on Sat, 17th Nov 2018 10:40 am 

    “If you keep using my name I am going to keep fucking with you, Exceptionalist.”

    I am fine with going back to June of this year where you ignored me and I gnored you. This includes sock puppets and no identity theft. I realize deviants might enjoy messing with this agreement so any sock activity or identity theft will be investigated before retaliation. That is my deal take it or leave it. You might talk to Boney Joe because he is a party to this offer also as a suspected sock puppet.

    Buckle up! Its going to be a bumpy landing!

    Davy,

    Shouldn’t you be on ancestry.com, looking for a new girlfriend..

  14. Davy on Sat, 17th Nov 2018 2:23 pm 

    MOB, are you trying to be cute and funny because it’s not. I don’t mind when someone is funny and cuts me down. Humor has value. Humor loosens people up. I admire someone who can laugh at themselves. What doesn’t have value is stupid. Stupid is not funny and it cheapens the board. I think it would be better for all of us if you were gone.

  15. I AM THE MOB on Sat, 17th Nov 2018 2:57 pm

    Did I hit a nerve?

    I know how you trust fund babies love to keep it in the family..

    LMFAO!

  16. Davy on Sat, 17th Nov 2018 3:16 pm 

    The only nerve you irritate is the one that gets irritated with stupid kids that mouth off stupid. You spend a great deal of time here so you influence the quality of material we can offer visitors. What do you offer? You offer stupid. WTF..then you get some criticism and you dig your stupid hole deeper with stupid.

    we have a toxic society and we need to detoxify it. we ignore the advices of our supertards, we created conditions that’s not conducive for our supertards to operate and they have to buy 1000 arces in ozark and practice permacultism. we have oroville damn which does not take into account of simple physics water gains kinetic and lose potential energy as it goes downward. we need to widen the foot of the spillway toward the bottom but we don’t. our supertards in insurance biz told us not to build but we build on hurriczne zone beaches and forrest fire in california.

    we have a president who can grab all that is known to horny men and that’s OK with me because he gave israel jerusalem and i’m kosher with it. i also liked he stop jizya to pakistan. i don’t like how it’s soft on defend 2nd. a big problem is he’s toxic, he has no supertards working for him.

    Kids are annoying. They should be raised in labs using good eggs and sperms. They should be sent to facilities to be raised by professionals//linguists///trained in arts and sword fighting..taught how to survive. Stupid kids should be dropped into the wild forsts full of wolves and man eating bears.

    Hey, брат, just what “granite forum” did you make your “anti-American dog” from?  I doubt that things are going any better in Russland than here.  Our main problem is not infrastructure per se, it is the importation and toleration of vast numbers of semihumans.

    South Africa also has high HIV rates, with the cure being to have sex with an underage virgin. South Africa is certainly representative of the world at large, and I can see why this article was published to that effect.

    Peak oil, natural resources depletion, overpopulation and immigration are all linked together.

    Mass migration are people moving toward the last area capable of supporting life and fighting for the control of these area and associated resources.

    Brown people are now organizing them self and trying to get the control of the last nations that can support life. For example, Muslim are moving to UK and are trying to changes the law therefore becoming the ruling class and controlling the country and resources.

    Whites people need to become more tribal, otherwise we will massacre by other tribe.

    Personally, I consider Western nations (Canada, UK, Germany, France) finished with no future. If there is a future for the Whites race, it will be Eastern Europe and Russia. Maybe with an US White Ethnostate.

    The US is collapsing.

    The USA is an immoral bankrupt warmongering police state.

    The US is heaven now if you love tyranny.

    The US is hell now if you love freedom.

    The US failing in every area. Alcoholism, drug use, homelessness, and STD’s are rising. Test scores are falling.

    Obama is called an asshole for destroying the US with wars, debt, and tyranny, but Americans then around and say Trump is a god for supporting wars, debt, and the police state.

    Americans say that they are victims and blame everyone except themselves for the collapse.

    Americans are so enslaved today that they attack anyone who criticizes their government overlords.

    Americans walk around like zombies pretending everything is just fine even though the decay is obvious.

    Anyone who questions the wars, debt, and tyranny is called a nutjob or racist and is censored, banned, given an IRS audit, arrested, or killed.

    The US only has 5 Libertarians now, but they’ll go to the concentration camps defending freedom because they can at least say that they tried to wake people up.

    How can Americans look in the mirror now without feeling complete disgust and shame?

    How can you let your country fall and say nothing?

    WTF?
