there are too many of us, afterall...
It's about weeding dils like you out of the gene pool.
it's actually about being superior
not the game, old chap
not overpopulating the world
but eugenics (as i understand it) isn't necessarily the answer to dealing with that.
And the eugenics debate is front loaded with how do you choose what to lose vs the ideal of the sanctity of all life. and you're likely to have a bunch of people agreeing that eugenics is the way forward, and jumping on the what to lose side based on their own prejudices. and they're all cunts and would be best pushed off the planet first anyway, so maybe having a party with this as one of it's policies would be a fine way for people to mark themselves out as 'best choice for lightening the planet'.
Too many people. Stop having so many babies then, that's a start. Improve sex education and make it available globally and get the RC pricks in teh vatican to back it instead of adding to the problem. Try a similar approach the chinese government had, have people apply for parenting licences, before they can have kids. Let people die off naturally rather than propping them up with machines. If someone is fucked and they don't want to extend their period of death (cos your not necessarily extending a period of livable life), help them out. Fuck, make more of an effort to extend our collective living space by spending money on travelling into space and looking at other places to populate, rather than on how best to blow someone up in order to make room for more people. Start some death cults or something if you can't wait for the birth vs death ratio to tip in favour of population control.
You don't have to talk about eugenics if you're talking about population control.
Not sure it's a thing.
Over consumption? Now you're talking.
'we' just inefficiently supply 'us'
what's the word for that?
aka greed & stupidity.
Load of Malthusian crap
World's carrying capacity is maybe 12bil people, population projected to peak at 8-10bil in 2050 and start falling.
overconsumption + inequitable distribution + failure of ethical/governance systems to prioritise future protection is fucking us up
What standard of living per person etc?
soon violent horror will engulf many/most societies
it's already started.
