Agreeing with Zirp; why punish the many for the burden of the parasitical [top] few.

If we want humanity's consumption to get below what nature can grow back, culling the richest one percent would be more effective than culling the poorest 50%.

The world has never been stable, but eliminate100% of people, maybe.

A 2012 UN report summarised 65 different estimated maximum sustainable population sizes. The most common estimate was eight billion.

Stability relates not to population but to having a social system that cares for the planet and produces food etc to meet human need rather than to make a profit.

It could be stabilized at the level it is now. We certainly don't want more.

This is not a speculative philosophical issue (WRONG FORUM), it's actually a well-studied scientific issue. Sociology and Ecology are two of the disciplines that are highly concerned with the effects of over-population, so go ask in the Social Sciences or Environment categories. Just to humor you, it is estimated that the sustainable number that won't continue to destroy the earth's ecology is about 1.5 billion. The current population is about 7.5 billion. You figure out the percentage - it's not rocket science.Source(s): INTERNET SEARCH. IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE EITHER
