    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Yup, exactly... because that always works so well don't it?

    Considering the chance of death in humans is 100%, it's virtually certain that if millions more people are born that each and every one of them will die.

    Sorry for the bad news.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    No, those aren't insights into the problem, they're what some people (though not may) suggest as a solution. Some might advocate government policy aimed at those ends, but the thread asks about the inevitability of mass die-offs because of population growth. A couple big things are profoundly dependent on oil, which in my opinion are industrial food production and global freight. Without these things, 8+ billion people cannot be sustained. We've grown dependent on systems that require oil, so whenever oil goes away, we do.

    Yup, but for most people it doesn't work so well for very long. Most people are going to have sex. If you have sex, there's eventually going to be a pregnancy unless stuff is snipped.

    People who do the deed should pay for their own consequences. If you don't want to pay the consequences then don't do the deed.
    Don't want to go to jail for murder then don't committ murder.
    Don't want to have starving kids that you can't afford to feed then don't make kids.
    It is that simple.
    If you do the crime you do the time.
    If you have kids you can't afford to feed you get to watch them starve to death.
    It is that simple.
