Have you ever stopped to think that maybe the world is just overpopulated?
Water shortages, electricity shortages, looming food shortages, starving children, wars over land. All this could be put down to just “Too many people, Too little resources”. Imagine if we reduced the population by 25%?
Removed the lazy, terminally ill, over aged and generally useless hangers on.
Realistically, we could come up with a “means test”. We could set up an international board who stipulated a couple of basic questions. If you pass the means test, we let you carry on. If you fail we cull you. A bit like we as humans do when the grassy plains are over populated with antelope. Yet we don’t give them a means test, we just shoot them randomly. Actually not that randomly. We just aim at the one standing still.
So we start in the prisons and we just remove all the life sentence inmates. Then we look at those that would be a burden to society once they are released. We could then move on to the people who have no ambition to contribute to the betterment of society. Politicians I call them. Imagine removing the useless leaders in Africa? We would reduce demand exponentially. After all, look how much those over-empowered liars waste.
That in numbers can be balanced like this: Population of 49,320,500 vs. GDP of $M276,764. That equates to about $M5,611 per person. Now compare that to Saudi Arabia: Population of 25,721,000 vs. GDP of $M469,462. That gives them about $M18,252 per person. BIG DIFFERENCE! They have more money with less people. No wonder they are better off than us.
So my feelings are obvious. Let’s reduce numbers to reduce demand and make for a better average!
