I’ve posted this before and I’ll post it again. We are SO fucked if our population continues to grow. I mean the concept of “natural rights” is a joke in the face of 50 BILLION people all clamoring for “natural rights”. We as a planet simply do NOT have the resources to sustain a population of that size.
But you guys are all against abortion… Many Christians/Catholics are against birth control… WHAT. THE. FUCK? It doesn’t make any sense to be against those things now, when the consequences of that position will manifest itself in a few generations as an entire planet on the verge of cannibalism just to feed itself.
Barring a good old fashioned Malthusian event, that’s where we’re headed. And I’m of the opinion that it WILL happen on it’s own and not as the result of any “Eco-fascists”… Mother Nature is a bitch and has proved herself time and time again… She’ll come up with something nice and decimating to our population (if we don’t foolishly do it to ourselves first).
Most of us here are at least casual students of history, is that NOT the pattern?
How would YOU feed the metric shit ton of people that will be our population in two hundred years?
Methinks any help in reducing the population growth of our planet would be the position that MOST logical people on this board would hold. But instead we allow religion and “morality” and “natural rights” to cloud the issue and it will ultimately lead to our extinction… Way to think it through.[/quote]
Whose descendants have a place in this future?
“The Census Bureau forecasts that non-Hispanic whites, now slightly more than 60 percent of the population, will fall below 50 percent in 2043. Within 30 years, there will cease to be a racial majority in the United States.”
Not mine. I’m just a tired old nativist. You can keep your green toys. Why should I invest in something I won’t see a return on?[/quote]
Um… Who gives a fuck about which “racial majority” has the most people in the future? If I read your position right (and I’m not certain that I am understanding you correctly, I certainly hope that I’m not), you are saying that if YOUR offspring are not the “majority race” (a status that YOU happen to enjoy right now simply by chance), then you don’t really care what happens??? Because you won’t see a “return” on it?
Please tell me you are joking…
First of all, as long as you HAVE DECEDENTS, you have a “return”…
Second, if the world population becomes “less white”, so what? We’d have a more robust population with a wonderful variety of traits that we can all benefit from? From better immune systems, to higher intelligence, to more diverse languages and culture?
Third, the statistic you cite is for the United States… I would submit for your consideration that our “population issues” are more in India, China, Africa, etc… Not saying that we don’t have an IMMIGRATION problem here with an undocumented Hispanic population sucking up resources while not contributing, but that issue pales in comparison to the birth rate in India from a GLOBAL perspective…
