    That is 500 or so million. Another 500 million are considered very poor to poor.

    Something like 20-25% of the poorest people on Earth live in India.

    It's just crazy...
    For a long time, the India government had some kind of Luddite cottage industry support system in place.
    Basically, the subsidized old style industries because of the fear of loosing jobs, while also supporting older culture.

    Even now the politics of the country are incredibly screwed up.
    Their political parties routinely and openly bribe people to support them by promising stuff (tv's, toasters, etc).
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    India is on my list of countries that I will not visit unless drastic change occurs... India actually had a Bubonic Plague outbreak in 1994!

    Re: Population Control

    Some interesting projections.
    438 million in 2050 up from 296 million in 2005? Who knows? Immigration is the population control issue - can you protect the US quality of life with uncontrolled immigration? Population control from births has more to do with education than regulation.
    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.

Traffic jams already waste two hours a day for the average American commuter.


    Benny 16, Con artist and thief - follow the money trail.

    When I hear remarks like yours I can see Benny 16 right behind you saying, "Make more Catholics." I say Benny "**** off" you ignorant piece or ****. Just what America needs more poor on welfare. Catholics are against a woman's right to choose, against the right to die, (which is legal in two States in spite of Benny). GLBT rights, (tough luck Benny the law over rides you, you ignorant idiot), providing safe houses for illegal immigrants, and priests playing with 12 year old boys. We need to dismantle the Roman Catholic Church, it is UnAmerican.
    First and foremost. I have none of those problems. No traffic jams, no long commutes, etc. If you don't like that, leave the city. They are one in the same. Secondly, we have 9.2% unemployment because we have an IDIOT in the white house. Talk about ignorance. And how about sticking to the topic instead of rambling off on your own asinine idealism.

    Is there a need for population control? If not, what evidence do you have that there is not? Will there be a need in the near future?

    If so to what degree? I.E. How many children should be allowed? Should control be by economic status or equal to all families?

    I want to get a sense of where people are on this topic
    We need to limit the welfare parasites.

    There is an easy way to do it without being like Hitler. Just eliminate all welfare programs that subsidize reckless childbearing--earned income credit, aid to mothers with dependent children, government-run education, public housing, EBT and food stamps, government-run health care, and ALL government benefits for illegal aliens.

    So you favor punishing children for the actions of their parents?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    It isn't punishment, stop being dramatic. Parents and governments sometimes have to make decisions for the best and sometimes that means that people or children have to adjust.

    We should definitely encourage welfare class women to receive regular shots of Depo or some other long-acting method of birth control.

    Re: Population Control

    Yes, but not dictating who can breed, but forcing those who cannot afford to breed to stop doing so. Can't feed 'em, don't breed ' em.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
