farking horrific.

I remember some horror film when I was a kid---some B-flick on a UHF station where this chick unknowingly breeds with the Devil disguised as a handsome boyfriend--then like her family and church find out and they try to kidnap her to force her to abort the Antichrist and she manages to escape.

There are those who think that we have too many people on this planet. The only thing that many of them can agree on is the only way to bring down population levels is to offer birth control to all women. The problem with this is that access to birth control to every woman sounds great, but it wouldn't fully result in population decline. We would still be a few billion people too many.

How does one deal with this without getting all tyrannical? Licenses to breed? Forced abortions? Executing the unwanted?

How do we deal with this?

I've never seen much in the way of proof that over population is an actual problem more than it is a manufactured one. There are plenty of resources to go around to support everyone and then some, the problem is that it is unequally distributed. We have the technology to feed everyone everywhere with genetically modified food, but nope, can't do that, you'll get the health and environmental nuts all worked up.

A communist country where tens of millions of children grow up without really knowing what 'brother' means.

Unless... since they have no literal brothers, then everyone in their community becomes the only type of brothers they know.

Clever, China.

/but forcing abortions on people?  Not so clever.

Quit giving tax breaks for dependents.  Problem solved.  It will also encourage families to murder their elderly, so it's a double win.

The most realistic solution is finding a way to increase standard of living while decreasing the resource cost of that standard of living. Modern industrial societies almost always have birthrates below replacement, in large part because not only do they have access to birth control, they no longer need large families to ensure that the elderly parents will have care as they age. This is a generational shift in cultural values, and has been found to generally take about 3 generations of exposure to modern standards of living. That is, if the grandparents were immigrants who came from a culture of scarcity and little systemic support where they needed a large family to survive and they come to a western democracy, their grandchildren born in that nation will have demographic numbers very close to that of the western nation. In addition, we have direct sociological evidence that modernization reduces birthrates. Quebec for example showed this in a pronounced manner during the 20th century, when its populace was culturally transformed from a mostly rural agrarian and highly religious, to a more urban industrialized and secular society after the Quiet Revolution.

Don't worry about it. The next famine/plague/world war/natural disaster will take care of it.

If you're determined to take action you could try forced sterilization. Start with the prisons and work your way up from there.

We're already working on the solution.

Beyond that, wars work pretty well.  We can kill each other over a large variety of reasons.

Holy wars are particularly effective.  Many of you act like religion is a bad idea, but it has historically worked pretty well as a culling mechanism.

Aside from that, maybe we could pay people to not have kids.  If you got more money for NOT having kids than you get FOR having kids...

Simple answer: improve quality of life for the culture in question.  Seriously.


Birth rates in the first world have been dropping rapidly for the last 50 years.  The U.S. is bucking the trend somewhat because of its large immigrant population, but most are almost dropping below replacement levels.

The simple fact is when you get to the point where people can have a comfortable and fufillling life and don't need to pop out 10 kids to ensure 4 survive to run the farm, people don't bother.
