Yes their regimes are repressive. But, the real reason the people are demonstrating and beginning to revolt is unfortunately, a flavor to come. They are doing so because their populations have far outstripped resources, especially in Egypt. The government there, to keep the people quiet gave jobs to the educated, and free grain to the masses. But, then never address family planning. It, like us, wants to live in fantasy world of unlimited, but irresponsible population growth will be maintain by technology. Well that dream is coming to an end.

This is the problem with the other nations as well, instead of facing reality, they keep dreaming.

My prediction is this will only get worse when fuel prices go up so far to keep food deliveries from happening. Another case of leaders ignoring the problem instead of having the moral courage to address it (unlike China). Of course, our nation’s leaders and elite continue to live in the 1700 and 1800s where the never ending frontier and resources allowed everyone to avoid hard issues and solutions, and just keep grabbing more. As a result of this poor leadership, we are all going to suffer. The population is now reading 7 billion, and unless our nation begins to address it, at current consumption rates, there is going to be a lot of upheaval.

Why is man the dumbest of all animals?

We know we are already encountering severe shortages of critical resources, such as water, now 10 nations in danger of having no water to support their populations. But, we still believe that we can have unlimited population growth, and somehow, technology will save the day!

I was driving with my good friend to a Civil War antique and gun show in Richmond from my home in Woodbridge, VA, about 60 to 70 miles. It took us two hours because Interstate 95 was a parking lot, both ways; yet, I hear so called smart people, with PhDs in conservative think tanks, cringe when people bring up the need for population control or levelling off.  My question is, how are we going to take care of these extra people if we cannot do it now? They never have an answer, just use fantasy.

Below is an article about Pakistan having water shortages, despite its record flooding, and in light of these shortages, their population will still increase from 170 million to 220 million in the next decade! The information is out there that these type of disasters are occurring, but people still add more of us to our ranks! Why, because we are stupid. What is wrong with encouraging all of us to be responsible, and limit the size of our families to one or two children (replacement rate), so all of us have a future of living better. Instead, our leaders, live in a fantasy world hoping that technological breakthroughs will allow us to live without responsibility.

When one traces the roots of all our problems, it always ends up with overpopulation. Of course fixing it will not be easy, nor will it require what China did with its one child policy, it just demands the public be informed, and this is something the elites do not want to do, and then there are the organized religions of this world, that also live in fantasy lands with their misinterpretation of the bible, or what ever book they follow and almost all demand more people.

Just imagine if our country’s population levelled off? Wow, we  could actually catch a breather about fixing a lot of our severest problems.

Drowning Today, Parched Tomorrow



HARD as it may be to believe when you see the images of the monsoon floods that are now devastating Pakistan, the country is actually on the verge of a critical shortage of fresh water. And water scarcity is not only a worry for Pakistan’s population — it is a threat to America’s national security as well.
