yee yee, listen all the people of the obese world, special offer, feed one now, and you'll be able to feed 10 more in the coming years
this is what they're basically saying, apart from missing the last part.
i agree with John, although it's hard to admit, but these people simply can't prosper, not in those conditions, even if you feed them, they'll simply make more hungry children.
this is a very cruel sentence but, there simply is no room for many of them, and their natural urge to reproduce is driving them into deeper despair.
we sure can't feed them, but DON'T call it "solving a problem" because it's not, it's actually making things worse. many say war will be humanity's undoing, i disagree, our urge to reproduce and spread will be our undoing, it's already showing in vast parts of earth. we've hit the earths threshold and it's wavering, though year 2012 might be the year, i think it'll take a decade at least.
human is the single most selfish being, as we have to be to survive in such cruel world. not that animals are any better. though people like to think they're saving someone, they're not. when it comes to real life and death decisions, EVERYONE would prefer to see the man standing beside dead, and himself alive. basically, it's common sense, now isn't it? the only living thing a man or woman is willing to sacrifice his life is offspring, but then again, offspring is us, in a way, so it's just a very big price to pay, so "we live on".
there was only ONE person that i know of, in the whole history of humanity, that was willing to give his life for others. while there are countless psychologist figuring out human mind, Church has laid the foundations to it all some 1500 years ago, written in a book.
again, there's an issue, he wasn't really a human, hell some even doubt his existence. while i question, did he do it for fame and glory? it's been almost 2000 years, and people still talk about it, even Hitler will be forgotten sooner than that.
much projections are written in the book to which i gave a link in my previous post, John from your writing it seems that they might interest you. oh, and i think 7 billion is just the sustainable amount, although with much different life styles-it's all in the book. but we won't reach 7 billion, AIDS and other plagues will start taking the toll from checkpoints they're building this moment
