Why Is it.....?

Post by PeteC » Fri Sep 16, 2016 5:45 am

Vent your various frustrations about any subject. Pete :cheers:

Why is it that no one in authority, neither governments nor religious talks about over population being the number #1 cause of most of the world's woes. Answer: It would result in less votes, constituents, and a smaller flock! :banghead:

The difficulty is how do you limit population if voluntary programs don't achieve the desired result. A selection process by location, race, age, IQ etc., is a path fraught with danger.

Perhaps. :laugh: If we as humans don't so something though, nature without a doubt eventually will, and it won't be pretty. Pete :cheers:

China did it for a number of years restricting the birth to one child per family, although I believe that was lifted a few years ago - dread to think what their population would be now had they not done so.

Soylent Green?
My brain is like an Internet browser; 12 tabs are open and 5 of them are not responding, there's a GIF playing in an endless loop,... and where is that annoying music coming from?

Why is it that pizzas are cooked round, delivered in square boxes and eaten in triangles.

You're correct mate. :cheers:

The irony of it all is that the majority of over population happens in some of the most poverty laden, disease ridden regions of the world. :?

My theory on that one is that in most miserable places with little to no life opportunity, the only thing to look forward to is a good bonk, perhaps daily. Birth control never seems to become universal in those places for one reason or another; poverty, lack of education, apathy. God knows the NGOs try but kids keep coming. With all the positive changes the Pope is making, he better get around to sanctioning birth control ASAP as hundreds of millions in the third world still live by his every word. Pete :cheers:

But the birth rate is in decline and has halved worldwide over the last 50 years. Many countries have an increased ageing population and are desperate to prop up the birth rate. Singapore is a prime example but there are many others. Most western nations are in trouble but also the birthrate in Asia is on the decline. China has abandoned it's 'one child' policy because of a decline in the birth rate.

So limiting population in most countries is not viable.

Read the below. A long read and a bit complicated but has the facts on where the world was and where it is now.

I'm still waiting for someone to tell me why buttons on a drive up ATM have brail on them.
