    Fun Fact: Since this video was made, the world population has increased by 400 million people. We are averaging 100 million growth increase in population per year. At that rate, the human population will be roughly 10 billion people by the year 2040. If you think that rate is going to magically go down in the next 20 years btw, you're fucking delusional. There hasn't been a negative growth rate in human population for hundreds of years, even with the massive wars and plagues that have killed hundreds of millions of people. Didn't make even the slightest dent. Our growth is out of control, and you should be very, VERY worried. Especially since we are going to run out of oil worldwide in the next 50 years. Good luck with that, I'll be dead before then.

    Do you know that the reduction of population is dangerous to society? LGBT, abortion, gay marriage, sex mutilation operations, hormonal treatments, euthanasia, ultra feminism, women waiting longer to have children (when infertility problems are more prominent), or having zero kids for “ecological reasons “, etc. All these agendas point to: NO babies. This puts us at risk!!! Guess who will continue to grow within our society?? Yes, those cultures in which men have more than one wife and conceive many babies with each one of them. They will outnumber everyone and dominate!! One of their biggest leaders said they would defeat their enemy without weapons, all they need are the wombs of their women. Guess what? They don’t believe in democracy!!! They will not tolerate gays, feminists, liberals, other religions, etc. Can’t you see the cliff society is happily heading towards? Also, in Joe Biden’s government plans he wants to reopen flights to their countries and allow them into the US. 🤔

    Coronaviruses lasts for just a month, Condoms induce pollution, Family planning is expensive and Purges can cause serious tensions to economy. The only way to reduce population is to find a planet that can be terraform. NASA creates a project to launch all Minecraft players, Among Us players and ML players into Mars and SpaceX will terraform Venus for the rich. The poor and the middle class can bring back the Earth into normal.

    When all countries are developed and we're living in the future utopia where religion is dead, tribal warfare in Africa is a thing of the past, and everyone is smart and educated, and the population has levelled out will there be enough land and resources to sustain that many developed world people? That answer by any metric surely is no, which is why it's not a myth, it's a big problem.

    Except this video is at odds with the one about automation. Progress requires less and less humans each year, yet we produce more and more humans each year. We also can't support all of the planets population living at middle class standards with their own homes/cars/vacations/etc. Which people are going to volunteer to opt out? The whole "population is fine, it will stabilize and we will all be happy and live long lives!" requires a lot of assumptions that seem to be at odds with many of the statements about climate and pollution and automation that the very same groups are talking about. The reason is obvious of course. Discussing overpopulation and the fact that ultimately something will have to be done about it isn't a popular subject that wins elections. So it will be ignored and avoided until it becomes plainly obvious that the population level is totally unsustainable and at that point those with the most power will do what they think needs done to ensure their survival and continued quality of life even if its "distasteful". And like usual the weakest and most vulnerable will be those who suffer the most.
