If we start living longer lives and continue to reproduce at the rate we have been we’re going to wind up over-capacity. The Earth has a finite amount of space. Yes, there is a maximum occupancy and that number according to scientists is roughly 10 billion because that’s when food shortages become an issue. We’re at 7.4 million now. By 2100 it’s expected to near the 10 billion mark with some estimating numbers as high as 15 billion.
We need to focus on the BIG PICTURE items: Climate change (the threat of extinction), education (the foundation of everything), religiosity (the), and income inequality. Instead we seem to be getting lost in myopic battles. How the fuck can anyone really give a shit about stopping two people from marrying one another, or stopping a woman from making her own decisions over her own body, or jailing someone just for smoking medicine that grows out of the goddamn ground, or comparing the size of ones bank account when the very survival of the human race remains uncertain at best?
No, that’s not rhetorical.
