How many here remember when a “population explosion” was a major topic of concern. Since then, the world population has indeed exploded, more than doubling in the last 50 years.
Meanwhile, the consumption of resources and production of pollution — per capita — has also increased, yet there are authorities trying to convince us that we need more people, not fewer.
That’s the biggest “pyramid scheme” ever, and if we don’t stop it — deliberately and carefully, — it has to eventually collapse, catastrophically. This pandemic could well be the beginning of such a collapse, IF we try to return to the pre-pandemic pyramid building.
