That's already happening ).

    It's more cruel to feed these people and let them have children that can't be cared for. So they get taken care of by the west and there's another generation of children starving to death.


    If you moved all those people to Europe or somewhere else, it will become just like the country they left. If they can't survive in a place as big as Africa, how is a little place like Europe going to handle them? Where is the land for farming going to come from? What about the water?

    The West can't take care of the world.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.

    How?

    Firstly, we must look at what is the most important issue in todays world: "The Economy". It's always the economy; how it is fairing, how it is growing, projections for such, and the need to coddle and massage its fragility as it's the one thing we all rely on to survive. Or so the story goes...

    Then a totally different economic paradigm is essential; currently we rely on a system that works by continual growth, and growth at a frenzied rate is always sought after.

    Even areas that don't have naturally increasing populations - Australia hasn't for over 30 years, have still seen population increase through rampant immigration - immigration we are continually told is 'great for our economy'. (Population growth=Economic growth) In this example, Australias population has increased from 16.5 million in the mid '80's to over 22 million today.

    Change the economy - change the reliance on growth, and change the rampant and rapid expansion of population. Somewhat easier said than done.

    The population of the world is expected to more than double, growing from 7billion to 15billon by 2100, according to the United Nations.

    The figure has shocked experts who say the numbers will be catastrophic if realised and claim urgent action is needed to curb growth and save the planet's resources.

    Previous UN estimates predicted the population to reach 10 billion people by the end of the century, however the startling new figure will be released in a report by the United Nations Population Fund (Unfpa) later this week.





    World population will more than double to 15billion by 2100, says UN

    7 billion humans, peek oil, climate changes, riots, bail outs, mass immigration and a West in full decline. And they call my generation the lucky one?

    Some 'experts' say it's going to level out - even fall in some countries - I can't see how. It's a timebomb.

    Eventually our people will go bankrupt or there will simply not be enough of us to "save" the poor of the third world & there will be a sharp correction.

    Western countries some time ago would have levelled out (and some fall in population) if it wasn't for immigration. One of the reasons immigration is pushed so hard is a growing population is a driver for a growing economy, and a growing economy is currently presented the only single viable economic option.

    Being the centrality of belief in the economy's position, either:
    • The economy is removed from its central position of most import

    • The current capitalist (financialist to be more precise) worldview is removed
    • Or the current system is altered to run at sustainable, zero growth rates


    Make no mistake - it's a timebomb for sure. The problem is most assuredly in Africa and Asia though there are examples of halting booming growth in population that aren't limited to only China's 'one child policy'. Look for examples at Iran and Thailand and the Phillipines.

    If only India and Africa (as a whole) adopted some of their measures.

    Think of it like a rollercoaster. As you ascend slowly on the chain lift, you get a sense of excitement for what is coming, and then the first drop is the big one, and after that the rollercoaster glides through the rest of the course losing speed. I probably should not use the word "excitement" though for what will happen in the future sooner or later.

    It won't be exciting when everyone is starving to death or when there's some sort of plauge.
