    Human over-population.

    At the same time complaining about low fertility and birth rates below replacement level? A disconnect somewhere.

    Who was doing this complaining, O-uknow?

    Media reporting it is their way of complaining about it. They need your reaction. I'm surprised there are people who still see overpopulation as a threat and not the concentration of wealth and resources in the hands of a few that see the rest as useless eaters.

    This is an opinion question. There might be someone who sees the devil as the world’s biggest problem, but let’s give them a chance too.

    "Over-population" is a code word for "I wanna kill something."

    It’s also plain language for “too many”. We’ll just go with that.

    Agree. I think it can be shown at nearly instance, we exceed our resources.

    Too many people, too few computers so everyone can stay in their caves and stay put.

    I'm an artist.  That was an oil painting of what I pictured you to be like.   (NO)  NEVER.

    Is this much different now than at any other time? It’s been a fact of our civilizations since the first caveman beat down the next. 
    I would say to you also, there are people who simply don’t know how to build prosperity, lack the tools or initiative, or are consumed by other pursuits. Power and wealth, like politics, aren’t the same priorities for everyone. 

    How would you see the balances put right?

    These overpopulated third world countries seem to have a high birth rate and a low rate of child care. A friend of mine was on vacation in Brazil. He was taking a stroll on the beach with his wife when he noticed a tarp covering a nearby boat was moving. Thinking it was a rat, he pulled back the tarp. The boat was full of 'homeless' children.

    A lot of those countries also have a high mortality rate. Adults rarely live into old age. I’d bet many of those kids were orphans. Likely absent any education. They may well continue the cycle. 
    As perhaps an unkind aside, what else do poor, starving, restless, nonworking young people have to do BUT procreate...

    Surely you are aware that there is a growing problem of homelessness right here in this first world country, the U.S.A. This post was edited by SpunkySenior at February 25, 2018 9:50 PM MST

    .. and above all else the continual global assault against anything made in the image of God and his intent and purpose for Man. Under The Beast System anything contrary is elevated. The Beast System and various names for it is the world's biggest problem. All "isms" work within and function as a part of The Beast System.

    So, to understand your addendum, the greater world ill is the assault on beliefs, not the concentration of wealth?  This post was edited by Don Barzini at February 25, 2018 8:51 AM MST

    The assault on original intent and all images of God through genetic manipulation, gender identity, false doctrine, weather manipulation etc.. is the motive. The concentration of wealth is the means. This post was edited by O-uknow at February 25, 2018 8:52 AM MST

    Would it be off on a tangent if one surmised that this big problem is that too many people don’t perceive “God” as you do?

    The lack of ability to discern the fact that what happens over there affects over here.
