    I completely understand using that line of reasoning.

    Would work even better if that was a consideration BEFORE the pants come off.

    I understand the rationale of living within one's means (to include offspring). That reasoning is great if everyone's doing it. I'm not seeing that as any kind of prime reasoning that would have any major affect on population. It is easily offset by other factors, irresponsibility and religion being 2 factors right off the top of my head.

    While your reasoning may be correct, that's just not what I'm seeing.
    I do not believe that there is any developed nation where the native population is replacing themselves. Undeveloped nations are continuing to grow but they have different rational reasons. The global population will level off, it's inevitable. :fingersnap:

    You need to look at things globally because no one would guess that population growth would level off but statistically it is.

    I'm not arguing what it is doing globally statistically. You can be right

    My argument is mathematical/scientific possibility. Not to be ignored until it bites you in the ass like China is going to.

    I've been aware the "Great White West" is in decline, as well as Russia. China's decline has been mandated. What that tells me is current civilization is in decline because the part of the populace that is not in decline are a bunch of purposefully ignorant, 3rd World heathens.

    One would think as smart as these "globalists" are purported to be, they might pay more attention to something as real as the decline of their civilization(s). Must not be as much money in it as fleecing people now over the promise of salvation from global warming.
