As the world soars past seven billion people, it is a constant thought on everyone’s mind as to how we are going to sustain all of these people. The world is definitely overpopulated. The chief principle in economics is the theory of scarcity; that is the belief that the world cannot contain this many people. This leads the vast majority to work hard and hoard material things while at the same time fearing an economic crash.
There are many theories as to how to deal with the mass overpopulation problem. One idea is to stop making babies. China already limits households to two children. I can’t help but wonder what happens if a couple were to have triplets?
Another theory is to start colonizing other planets. Since America is known as the last frontier, many Americans are bored because there is nothing new to discover in this world. This is perhaps why we are so infatuated with space. Is there life on other planets? If not, maybe we should find a way to start colonizing Mars next since there has been water sighted on the red planet.
Migrating to Antarctica?
If the global warming theory persists, eventually Antarctica may become habitable. This is the fifth largest continent and already has tourists visiting during the warmest parts of the years. What if one day Antarctica became another country? That would go a long way to easing the burden of living in an overpopulated world.
How would we go about populating Antarctica? One thing that is almost for certain; the global elite would definitely want to establish a bank there. It would probably start with people from all over the world trying to escape oppressive governments and declaring their freedom. Then the global elite would definitely want to invade the territory and establish a bank. This would lead to the Antarctican Revolution and possibly a mass genocide of penguins.
The Real Problem and How to Deal With It
It’s fun to speculate but however it all turns out, the real problem is overpopulation. People blame the baby boomers for this problem, but it is actually their frisky parents who came home from World War Two and started having an average of four children per household.
Whatever the case, the overpopulation may have been a blessing in disguise. The elite were trying to turn us into robots and then realized there are a way more of us than there are of them.
The Post World War Two generation may have saved our lives by procreating more humans than they could control. They can either kill all of us or empower us to provide for ourselves. The latter is the result of the Internet being released to the public over twenty years ago.
