You watch WAY too much sci fi! Earth isnt anywhere near terminal capacity. Theres all kinds of open land out there that could be developed. We arent at terminal capacity until national parks and other public lands are abolished and turned into subdivisions and reservoirs. Watch the new Total Recall. THATS terminal capacity.
Well, that'd be against the law and human ethics... the scientists are thinking of terra-izing Mars so it's livable, but that'll take a few millenia. or they can make a baby rule like in china where one couple can only have one child.
I think of governments like entities--Literally living, "breathing", eating, "breeding" and evolving things. With that being said, it is hard to say what the next type of govt. will do. The next one might be so fierce, that it will clearly cull any individuals, groups, or organizations that make it "uncomfortable". Or if any of my prognostications are correct, "fierceness" will be unnecessary due to the general weakness of the body politic. Governments by their very nature LIKE weakness.
I know that most people do not believe or are not aware of the Illumanati ( I may have misspelled it) but anyways they are for the "elite" of society existing primarily because of their intelligence, their indoctrination of evolution amongst the scientific philosphers. Anyone that is higher up on the "elite" scale is going to be of more use than the lower scale of people. The sick, the poor, the rejects dont have a prayer of survival. I know of the Chinese government allowing familes to have only one child. They prefer to have it be a boy child because they are more use in their military. I do know that America is in debt to China and several other countries at that and China may very well own us someday. They are a communist country therefore if they own us we will eventually be under a dictatorship and ultimately be a communist country. That however is my own opinion, no facts.
This kinda makes me wonder how much more crowded our country would be if abortion never existed. The government will only do whatever is the most profitable. Profitable in terms of money. They don't really care about peoples lives.
