There are a “lot” of people on this planet. Essentially that means that there needs to be jobs for these individuals so at some point they all can make a living. Will there be a point where there can’t be enough jobs to sustain them all? If the objective is to make opportunity for all people to be gainfully employed then are we actually making that happen? Things “may” be safe now but how long will it last before this world is considered “overpopulated?” Yes there are things in place to limit (and even decrease) life, such as diseases, random acts of violence and even wars. A human life needs much more than to just be born into this world. An infant needs the proper upbringing and guidance. Without it, that child could end up in jail or become a victim to the ways of this planet as it grows older. Whenever we go to war, it helps to limit the population (and enhance the economy). Whenever there is a big disease (like Ebola) it helps to limit the population. Whenever there is a certain type of mental illness it also helps to limit the population (We are seeing a lot of that now). Do you ever think to wonder whether a lot of those bad things that are happening would be more controllable if our population size was significantly smaller? The bigger we become the more of Earth’s natural resources we need to use. At some point will there be a cutoff? Try to examine the overall picture of life. We are embarking on cars that can drive without us doing anything but sit in them. What will happen to all the Uber and Lyft Drivers? The car that can get over a thousand miles to a gallon of gas was invented a long time ago. However, if that car had been implemented today there would have been a “lot” of people out of work. Our objective is for people to have employment opportunity. If we develop so rapidly that technology lessens our need for human interaction then we will in essence be responsible for our own demise. If people don’t work, they don’t make money. If they don’t make money, the chances of them committing crimes increases. Just think of what the internet has done for the post office. What about pay phones on the street? Do you see many of them around anymore? Overcrowding (along with increased technology) may be deemed as progress, but at our own expense. If technology increases along with overcrowding there may be big conflicts down the road. Maybe we can ignore overcrowding now, but how much longer? Maybe that is why things are the way they are now. Think about it and come to your own conclusion on that. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
