<rant> I'm getting pretty tired of reality-deficient brain food around here.
You can't talk about economics and ignore "growth as cancer."
You can't talk about pollution and ignore population as driver.
When you do, even the most dense and unsublime reader will just turn you off.
We have plenty of people. Too many. And however you recoil in horror, something will be done, advertently by us, or inadvertently by allowing the algorithm to run its natural course, by population collapse through starvation, war, disease, etc.
But no one wants to talk about it. I welcome some sane views on population reduction that include religion, education of women, wealth redistribution, diet change, and other scientific (science include sociology) means.</rant>
