    Humans should stop producing

    I'm not kidding. Why do people keep having children? The world is already populated as it is. The world is messed up with control/government. Why would anyone want to bring a kid in this world who has to get registered by the government as if they are owned... sure get them a social security number, name, and so forth. Let's become synthetic beings controlled by media and follow stupid society. Yep.... I would never want to bring my own child into a world to be forced into this bullshit.

    My choice to have kids is not your concern.

    Then don't have kids. Remove your genetic combination from the pool.

    Re: Humans should stop producing

    We chose to have a child because of a deep seated need to be parents. We chose to only have one child at the time (now two, but with three adults in the household) because we wanted to contribute to reducing the population of Earth. I honestly don't feel like our live are all the bad. We don't deal with hate crimes on a daily basis. We have food, water, and a roof over our head. That social security number also comes with quite a few benefits, at least for now. I don't feel owned, partially because I've done a lot of reading on modern day slavery and suppression and don't feel like I'm part of either category. Generally speaking, I'm allowed to express myself however I want, assuming that I don't do something that would harm someone else.

    In general, the US population would be decreasing, if it weren't for immigration. Most people are choosing to have smaller families. And that effects our population in general.
    We are what we are. Nothing more, nothing less. There is good and evil among every kind of people. It's the evil among us who rule now. -Anne Bishop, Daughter of the Blood

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.
    -Jacqueline Carey, Naamah's Curse

    First I'd like you to take a look at those Asian countries that restrict the number of children you are allowed to have. While yes the world is populated those countries are very quickly learning as majority of them age that there is not enough people to take care of them.

    Second as a parent, I had my child with the intent to make the world a better place. To raise him to care and nurture the planet, to assist in saving and taking care of mother earth. My goal as a parent is to raise a good human being who contributes to society.

    On another note we've pretty much kept records of marriages, children, property, animals and the like for 1,000's of years. This isn't new.

    You made two statements above on why anyone wanted children: "the world is populated enough" and "the government is trying to own/control them" so my question is what's really your issue here? You think the world is overpopulated or the government.

    I will also say I've got serious issue with anyone who tries to control my uterus and family planning. That's my body and my choice which in itself is a whole nother topic.

    Population growth will slow / reverse without any crusade against overpopulation. Increase the standard of living, increase opportunities for women and increase access to birth control. Population growth will slow as a side effect. Determining an economic model that's sustainable if population growth falls below replacement rates might be a good idea though. Granted, Japan seems to be volunteering for the job of figuring that out for us.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    In all honesty. I don't think the word will ever stop populating.

    I completely agree with you on this. Better living conditions, wages, opportunities, all the stated above does slow population growth.

    Japan may want to figure a little faster before they get into serious trouble.

    Also Bart the world doesn't NEED to stop populating.
