    I don`t buy it. Unless we develop warp speed, the vulcans notice us and we, as a planet, rise up, there will always be more economic diversity. So yeah, I don`t buy it.

    That didn`t make sense. If there are more people, there will be FEWER resources per person for the masses. He should be moving the rocks to our right (his left), NOT to our left (his right). He moved the rocks the WRONG DIRECTION! The poor will get poorer, not wealthier!

    How was that enlightening at all? Want a news flash?

    The replacement rate in Japan is awful. In 50 years they will have a population crisis because they`re not having enough babies and their total population will decline dramatically. Europe as well, but not as bad as Japan.

    The only reason the US keeps increasing in size is because of immigration and that`s it. India will be a sesspool in 50 years due to MASSIVE overpopulation. Their culture is to have 5,6 and 7 kids. They need to STOP. They will leave China in the dust.

    Send em to Britain. We take everyone`s sh*t over here and if we dare complain we are considered trouble-makers.

    No matter how much the poor improve their lot in life, there will always be those who are doing better, and they will be hated for it, even though it is they who make it possible for those beneath them to do better.

    WRONG Hans,the rich will always get richer , and when the population grows by 2 billion there where be more people than before saving money to buy shoes , only existing to be exploited by the very rich who will be selling them overpriced low quality shoes , just to keep them in there place.
