Response to FD--> No such thing as "over population"-- just "under technology"--
No, I do not think the planet needs any more people, even if technology could sustain more. In fact, I think it needs less people. We would have less problems with less people packed together like sardines in cities. One could take a weekend drive up into the mountains without encountering bumper to bumper traffic of too many others trying to do the same, plus a host of regulators who tell you where you can and cannot be and collect fees for the places where you can.
What logical reason is there, Phil, for letting the population grow unchecked? I think you have none.
But no, I would not advocate major steps to reduce the population, such as unnecessary wars, genocide, etc. Birth control is enough, if used. Limit every couple to one child for a few decades, that should work.
