We are rapidly approaching terminal capacity on earth- do you think the government will cull weak humans or only weak ideas?

Report as

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.

But that is precisely the attitude that will put us there. If we don't address the issue now it will be too late when we get around to it.

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 like the baby thing the best- its a lot better than unfathomably cruel ideas I've heard before.

Humans may cull government and then themselves.

An option- we'll save that one for last resort ok?

It's not an option, it's history. When people are made to suffer more than previous generations, they blame the government.

When they blame the government, the government can either accept the blame and be overthrown, or find someone else to blame. Usually this involves another ethnic group, religion, or country. Whether they win the war or not, the problem is solved... until population pressure rises again.

yes, i think so. with the aging population,and the burden it puts on the system, governments around the world will see it fit to allow those with chronic diseases to die with dignity.

Wish they'd listen- they don't realize that a looming evil force much greater than there false sense of security has a purge button and wont hesitate to use it if we don't figure something out in time.

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.

"indoctrination of evolution"? Evolution doesn't need to be indoctrinated, it makes sense. The same can not be said of creationism.

Otherwise I agree with you- as opinionated as you seem I feel your much closer to the truth than most.

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.

Exactly. The upper echelon have a private golf course and work from home mostly- why would they care we are shoulder to shoulder or at least headed that direction like the streets of china. Money to buy more land so we can have less.
Report as
Yea and it has been admitted by past government officials that there is a "government that governs the government behind a thick curtain". Money and international unrest is what makes the world go round for these money hungry villains.
