@Higgins 

  In your logic, it could be said that there is a bad distribution of humans. But the truth is on a global scale, overpopulation does exist---there is a maximum number of people that the Earth can support on a sustainable basis.

Re: Overpopulation




There is no overpopulation.

There is only bad distribution of food and resources.

China would declare war on Taiwan in a second if they could. Only the USA keeps it from happening. They also have the largest army in the world. Considering that they are under no threat of being invaded, there is no need for such a large army for defense purposes. It is not a passive country by any means.
  

 

Hmm. China declaring war on China. well that makes sense.


NOT!! 

one of the reasons china is under no treat of being invaded is due to the extent of their army. without the army all they have is a really big population. not to mention that it is a prominent member of the UN.

Agreed. hump

Terraforming sections of solar planets and satellites would cushion the extrasolar expansion urgency but how do we get out? hum

Re: Overpopulation




@siddhiblore 

Your argument focuses primarily on the collective, nationalistic idea of national good above all, and while this is certainly a valid point of view, it ignores the plight of individual people. Yes, China's one child policy will limit the growth of its workforce, but who's to say if starvation wouldn't have done the same in time. The ultimate result, nationally, of China's one child policy is a smaller, more skilled, and better provided-for workforce with fewer of the problems associated with unrestricted growth.
India, on the other hand, has a slightly smaller population, but much higher growth. So yes, india will overtake China, but it's unlikely that they will be able to provide nearly as many or as high quality basic services for their growing population. Additionally, because of the artificial limit on population growth, the standard of living in China will grow faster, indeed is growing faster, than that of India.
Overpopulation poses serious problems, and while a one-child policy is an extreme response, these problems exist and must be taken seriously.

Re: Overpopulation




I BELIEVE THAT OVER POPULATION IS A PROBLEM THAT HAS BEEN HYPED. SO IT IS BELIEVED TO BE A PROBLEM FOR THE SOLE REASON THAT YOU HAVE MORE MOUTHS TO FEED. COUNTRIES LIKE CHINA HAVE EFFECTIVELY DISPLAYED HOW A LIABILITY LIKE POPULATION CAN BE MADE AS AN ASSET.
           THE PROBLEM WITH CHINA HAS BEEN 'THE ONE CHILD POLICY' BY THE EFFECT OF WHICH CHINA'S POPULATION IS EXPECTED TO PEAK BY THE YEAR 2015 AND THEN DECLINE. BY 2050 CHINA WILL HAVE A MAJOR CHUNK OF ITS POPULATION OVER 60.
                                         
INDIA ON THE OTHER HAND IS SET TO OVERTAKE THE CHINA'S POPULATION BY 2028.

THE THING WITH POPULATION IS THAT THEY ARE AN ASSET WHEN DEVELOPED ADEQUATELY. IT IS CHINA'S YOUTH WHO WORKING IN THE FACTORIES PUMPING UP CHINA'S ECONOMY.

CHINA WILL OVERTAKE THE UNITED STATES IN 2065 TO BECOME THE WORLD'S LARGEST ECONOMY . THIS IS POSSIBLE ONLY DUE THE HUGE POPULATION OF CHINA'S YOUTH.

INDIA MEANWHILE IS ALL SET TO HAVE THE WORLD'S LARGEST WORK FORCE OF APPROXIMATELY 700 MILLION AND IS SET TO OVERTAKE THE ECONOMY OF USA BY 2068 AND THE ECONOMY OF CHINA BY 2077.

ALL OF THIS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE IF THE POPULATION OF THE TWO COUNTRIES WERE SMALL. THE HUGE POPULATION LOWERED WAGES WHICH BROUGHT FDI AND HELPED THE ECONOMY OF THE RESPECTIVE COUNTRIES.

Re: Overpopulation




Overpopulation is, for the moment, no longer a major issue in Europe, China, and most of the U.S. Europe has naturally entered stage four demographic transition, during which population stabilizes and birthrates fall to about even. China has also entered stage four demographic transition by way of their one-child policy. America has a more interesting story to tell, as we are just entering stage three demographic transition in most areas, while certain cities have already hit stage four.

What this suggests is that encouraging developement in rapidly growing countries will help curb population growth and eventually bring the whole world to stability. Level of developement is one of the major consistent factors that seperate population stable countries like Canada, from uncontrollably growing countries like India.

On another note, Europe and China have both began the upper logistic curve in their growth charts, while India continues to exhibit exponential growth.

Re: Overpopulation




@calibur 

I fail to see how adding the emphasis 'ULTRA' changes the definition of the word 'nationalist'.

Again, a nationalist has a strong belief in sovereignty. The invasion of another sovereign nation without valid justification would disqualify Saddam from being a true 'nationalist' as it is a clear violation of the attacked countries sovereignty.

Re: Overpopulation




@calibur 

Then we have very different definitions of what a nationalist is.

A nationalist is someone who advocates political independence for their country. Basically a belief in sovereignty. Most world leaders would qualify. Saddams attacks on dissenters in his own country as well as invading Kuwait without justification violates a respect for nationalism.

Re: Overpopulation




Over population is a major problem. What we need to do is expand an international space program to help colonize other planets. Ours is becoming to polluted and droughts and bad harvests are diminishing health for even the most advance countries. Though it may sound a bit farfetched, we have or will have the proper rocket systems to get another planet soon and make it habitable, (and) have already found life-sustaining planets, but they are very far away, with the likelihood of the original crew getting old and dying, but the rocket should be large enough to to have at least a hundred people (with babies being born in space)

Hussein wasn't a 'nationalist' he was a violent dictator who used chemical weapons on dissenters in his own country, went to war with Iran, invaded Kuwait without justification and defied UN mandated weapons inspectors for a decade.

sounds like an ultra-nationalist to me.

 Hussein was a ultra nationalist but at least his country wasn't a permanent foothold for Al-Caida.
Al-Caida that NATO is funding, training and soon arming, in flagrant violation of international law, to take over Syria. 

 

Hussein wasn't a 'nationalist' he was a violent dictator who used chemical weapons on dissenters in his own country, went to war with Iran, invaded Kuwait without justification and defied UN mandated weapons inspectors for a decade. The last of those was reason enough to invade.

Al Qaeda is NOT running Iraq and is not even much of an influence in that country anymore. It WAS a major influence when Saddam was in power.

What "international law" was violated? Please do tell. What idiot told you Iraq was going to 'take over' Syria? There is ZERO chance of that happening.
