    Reproduction

    A lot of people I speak to about the movement or just the change it suggests, people are always in disbelief because they believe the population control is actually needed to survive. Now I know that if we changed how we lived to a RBE with more access than actual possessions that the earth could support everyone and perhaps a lot more. But a lot of people believe that if we did not have to work anymore and everything was provided for us that we would reproduce like crazy. I however have seen that it seems to be the less educated people that have a ton of kids and that as populations become more educated they reproduce less. With a RBE I believe everyone would be far more educated then today; so reproduction would slow... but it wouldn't stop I feel that it is an instinct of all living things to reproduce. Like I wouldn't go out and have 5 kids before I could support them but regardless I would want to have at least 1 or 2 kids and I feel that that is how most people are; even wealthy people.

    Have there been any studies on this?

    There have been many 'studies' conducted on population growth and its 'assumed' problems, both current and future. All such studies have their own agendas and conclusions. And most (that I've seen) are missing …the most important element (or is it denial?) of the equation IMO.

    Our planet doesn't have too many people, just too many LandLords…..denying access to LAND….from those who could use it.

    Its not complicated, doesn't require a book, web site or expert….just an objective observation of how life on Earth survives…….and/or doesn't. ASK: Who reaps the rewards (PROFITS) offered freely from the planet, and who is denied those rewards (OUR commonwealth)?

    Have there been any studies pertaining to this? Like I myself do agree that with proper management and use of resources that we could provide and much higher standard of living for everyone on the planet. However I only believe this because with technology improving so fast I assume that there has to been sustainable ways to do pretty much everything so we should be able to do it. Peter and Jacque say a lot that the earth can support the current population+more and be sustainable but how do they know this, is it an assumption?

    Is there any research data showing how many people the earth can support, working off a humans needs to survive happily?

    They look at the statistical elements of how much food per capita is produced globally each year currently. They took the medical knowledge regarding how much the average person eats calorie wise per year and how much a person needs to eat to be healthy and multiplied that number to the current known population of the world. Not only do we produce more than enough, and have for some time.

    When I first heard that, I went to check for myself.
    Took the time to find the link to a site containing a pdf regarding such a study FAO Statistical Yearbook 2013 - World Food and Agriculture - World | ReliefWeb

    Tons of data, it's a big system and it changes all the time. Start Micro, USA vs China.. How much resources are consumed to keep USA happy vs China happy, 350 mil USA vs China alot more. USA resources could support 4x more by reducing the waste, along with doing more with less tech.....why work, for everything else there's.....

    It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.

    Right On!! We must not forget waste as part of this equation, wasted resources, wasted lives….wasted planet…..and all for individual, and mostly short term profit.

    According to the Rodale Family, one acre of fertile land can produce a year of veggies for 100 people when grown bio-intensively. I hope this insight helps place 'availability of land' into perspective. Most of the world's best sites have been taken already and/or are in a 'speculative' mode until the LANDLORD decides profit can be made by selling…..selling something that was never his/hers/ to begin with.

    We are all borrowers (well, some of us are thieves) of the LAND while living, when we die we return to the Earth, from which we came. In the future, hopefully this concept is recognized and we ALL simply become full time stewards of our planet, who passionately condemn the current theft and finally end the destruction.

    We are conditioned from birth to NOT think about the world as it really is.
