What Donald Trump's Steve Bannon is Very Possibly Thinking

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

If technological civilization 
advanced more in the last 10,000 years than the previous 1,000,000,
the last 1,000 than the preceding 10,000,
and the last 100 than the prior 1,000 and the last 10 compared to the last 100,
what could happen if many come to believe Earth’s population is unsustainable?

Only seven meals separate civilization from potential anarchy.

Josette Sheeran
UN World Food Program

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

The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

If Steve Bannon thinks the current Central Bank Ponzi scheme 
of printing money to create a more pleasant present is coming to and end
as efficacy retards, he may believe the refugee problem in Syria etc... 
is just the beginning of what could turn out to be massive waves of migration
as a result of what may likely turn out to be a disintegration of the world's new middle class,
located in the most populated countries 

If mold continues to multiply after eating half a piece of cheese,
what happens when demand exceeds supply?

If Steve Bannon thinks there is going to be a population die off one way or the other
at some point between now and the next fifty years,
maybe he is looking to get America ahead of it, seizing on opportunities etc...
to try to make sure our country takes the least amount of blows

If we’re the mold and Earth is the cheese, how many need and/or want how much,
where is half way, who’s got what’s left, who gets cut off when,
who will compete with who for what’s left, and how is who most likely to win?

Maybe Steve Bannon wants to get it on sooner than later,
to leave behind those who remain with relatively more natural resources than less
as the current status quo is slowly killing the human species

If mold can't collectively prevent the procreation of a larger generation
that can’t be fed by the remaining cheese,
is Steve Bannon and the Donald in the mood to preemptively take care of it?


Why have so many people shown up in the last 262 years?

Two fundamentally different stories have been enacted
…during the lifetime of man.

One began... some two or three million years ago by the Leavers,
and is still being enacted by them today, as successfully as ever.

The other began to be enacted here some ten or twelve thousand years ago
by the Takers,
and is apparently about to end in catastrophe.

Ishmael, a wise fictional gorilla


If arable land, fresh water, irrigation, genetically modified seed
modern equipment, pesticides and fertilizers
convert fossil fuel into enough food to keep pace with population growth,
is the populace dependent on ever increasing supplies of finite resources?

In 10,000 BC there were about 1,000,000 people
In 8000 BC there were about 5,000,000 people, or about x5 more in 2,000 years
In 6000 BC, there were about 10,000,000, doubling again in 2,000 years
In 4000 BC, 20,000,000, or +10,000,000 more in another 2000 years
2000 BC...35,000,000...  x1.5 2,000 years before
Year One, 200,000,000...  x5.7 in 2,000 years
1750...    791,000,000...  x3.95 in 1750 years
1900...    1,650,000,000...
2000...    6,070,581,000... x30.35 in 2000 years
2005...    6,453,628,000... +383,047,000 in 5 years
2008...   6,700,000,000...  x33.5 in 2008 years
November 2011...  7,000,000,000... +929,419,000+ in 11 years
April 2016...  7,416,900,000... +426,900,000+ in less than 5 years

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

Gore Vidal
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?

Do fewer Gazelles = fewer Cheetahs?

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.

There are too many people and not enough jobs

There are too many people and there isn't going to be enough food,
as the economy tanks and vendor payments and debt payments aren't made

More war coming

More war, debt defaults etc... = less oil production

More 1% bailouts with printed money to keep most of the population quiet 

More fake news

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

More Ponzi

Less oil production = less food, less transport, less global commerce, lower ability to keep the global population fed

Oil = modern food

Money = Oil and other finite physical resources

Normal Oil Production Peaked around 2005...

There are too many people

"Helicopter money" = Default

Humans have overpopulated Earth.

All progress
is based upon the universal innate desire on the part of every organism
to live beyond its income.

Samuel Butler

If resource consumption, food production, population, and fiat money creation,
all rose faster in the last 50 years than the preceding 5,000,
are we consuming more than replenishing?

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

Gore Vidal

If mold continues to multiply after eating half a piece of cheese,

If we’re the mold and Earth is the cheese, how many need and/or want how much,
where is half way, who’s got what’s left, who gets cut off when,
who will compete with who for what’s left, and how is who most likely to win?

Can mold collectively prevent the procreation of a larger generation
that can’t be fed by the remaining cheese?

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

Did increasing supplies of money, fossil fuel and food
contribute to Earth’s human population rising
from 1.6 billion at the beginning of the 20th century,to more than 6.8 billion in a little more than 100 years?
