Woman: 50 million babies have been aborted since 1973!
Man: Lucky stiffs would all be unemployed today.
Development and Human Productivity—is the Unsustainable Insanity of Human FecundityThe continued fecundity of the human species is not sustainable on this finite planet, this little spaceship we call Mother Earth. If the human species does not find the means and the will to control and limit the number of human beings living upon this planet—at any given time—and thus bring our species into a sustainable symbiotic relationship with Her, then Mother Nature will do it for us…and it will not be pretty.Just do the math of supply and demand. The planet has a limited amount of minerals, both organic and inorganic, and a fixed amount of sustainable organic resources that are either self-sustaining or that we, agriculturally, are able to reproduce each year; but only at a given or fixed quantity over a specific time period or rate. So, increase the demand on those resources by increasing the number of our species (fecundity = more babies) beyond our capacity and ability to maintain and provide a minimal amount of resources needed to sustain the increased number of beings and, WA-la, death occurs at two levels, (1) due to malnourishment brought on by starvation and/or (2) via a diminished or destroyed habitat within a hostile environment.As a side: If we do not limit the number of our species and do not bring that ‘number’ into an environmentally sustainable symbiosis with Mother Nature, there are no “Gods”—real or imagined—that will prevent the emanate demise or our species… if not its extinction. Or, if Human reproduction was a “Gift of a God or Gods” then it is also a Pandora’s box that we must either husbandry carefully or it becomes the Devil’s knife; fulfilling both our carnal and progeny desires while, in unison, destroying us by and through the unleashed fecundity of our foolish, arrogant species.
