Syria, Paris and Terrorism etc... Cause and Effect; Humans have overpopulated Earth.

Have the powerless created symbols for the powerful to destroy
to create dissent by turning apathy into oppression?

is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity.

Frank Leahy

The world's vegetation, resources, oceans, other species, arable land, water supplies and atmosphere are being eliminated as a result of humanity's soaring reproduction rate.

All animals are equal,
but some animals are more equal than others.

George Orwell

Resource consumption, food production, population, and fiat money creation,
all rose faster in the last 50 years than the preceding 5,000,
as we consumed more than replenished.

We have not re-calibrated our behavior to account for the resource depletion relative to a population wanting indoor plumbing and cars etc...
Do fewer Gazelles = fewer Cheetahs?

If Gazelles need water and grass
and Cheetahs need water and Gazelles
and an abundance of sustenance leads to more Gazelles,
should more Gazelles and water lead to more Cheetahs?

What do you do
if you’re placed in the middle of a desert with someone just like you
with one bottle of water equally distant
and the all powerful entity that put you there
says whomever drinks the bottle of water lives and who doesn't dies
and if the water is split or poured out you both die?

Mold continues to multiply after eating half a piece of cheese
and eventually eats the cheese and itself until there isn't any mold or cheese left.

People who have what they want 
are fond of telling people who haven't what they want,
that they really don't want it.

Ogden Nash 

If human beings are the mold and Earth is the cheese,
we appear to have past the point of possible sustainability
and now there are too many who want relatively high advertised standard of livings,
meaning globally, it's down to who get’s what’s left, who gets cut off when
and how and where who is most likely to survive.

As mold can't collectively prevent the procreation of a larger generation
that can’t be fed by the remaining cheese,
the human population of Earth appears to have done the same.

If need is sustenance and a temperate climate,
don't do what you don’t want done to you unless you need to.

There are probably already too many people on the planet.

We need to continue to decrease the growth rate
of the global population.

The planet can't support many more people.

If too many Gazelles relative to water and grass lead to fewer Gazelles,
do fewer Gazelles  =  fewer Cheetahs?

I have not come to you
except for the purpose of restoring your rights
from the hands of the oppressors...

Napoleon Bonaparte on the invasion of Egypt

Population, when unchecked,
increases in a geometrical ratio.

Subsistence only increases in an arithmetical ratio.

Thomas Robert Malthus
Suggested populations could increase faster than food supplies

If need is sustenance and a temperate climate
should you not do what you don’t want done to you
unless you need to?

Any system produces winners and losers

If the gap between them gets too great
the losers will organize themselves politically
and seek to recast the existing system within nations and between them

Henry Kissinger

What do you do if you possess a brief case that may contain either $0 or $1,000,000
and are offered $200,000 for the case?

Think of the Earth as a living organism…being attacked by billions of bacteria,
whose numbers double every forty years.

Gore Vidal

What if the majority of a civilization
collectively chose the case and lost
but most don’t know?

You're captives of a civilizational system
that more or less compels you to go on destroying the world in order to live.

Daniel Quinn
Postulated correlations between population growth
and natural resource consumption

Have most revolts been instigated by some with less who want more
against those with more?

Have the educated underemployed
caused most rebellions?

Were Hitler’s actions legal under German law?

How do many battle a few who can’t be assaulted with force?

If ignorance breeds fear and fear breeds bigotry
does bigotry breed hate?

Have freedom and equality
been invoked by those interested in other ends?

Why did many white religious institutions
teach congregants that God supported racial segregation?

I’ll tell you what war is all about

You’ve got to kill people, 
and when you’ve killed enough, they stop fighting

General Curtis LeMay

If technological civilization has advanced more
in the last 10,000 years than the previous 1,000,000
the last 1,000 than the previous 10,000
the last 100 than the previous 1,000
including industrialization and exponential population expansion
and the last 10 compared to the last 100
now what?

If non-material want can provide a high quality of life,
while material want doesn’t necessarily create happiness,
is it better to be miserable with a high standard of living
than unhappy and poor?
