    r/K Selection Theory Naturally Opposing TZM/RBE





    How would TZM/RBE be able to change something that is so fundamentally embedded akin to biological determinism and is resistant to change? It is almost as if both r-organisms and K-organisms are a different species.

    It's a shame that nobody can move it to another section. Oh well.

    Under a RBE, my own personal belief is in limited allowances. Limited allowances of resources per person. And that would extend to children.

    If you can put a limit on resources each person can receive, you can put a limit on children each couple can have.

    Two children per mother regardless of race. Problem solved.

The new relations are detected first by a few (with the finest moral tentacles), afterwards by more, then they are consolidated in rules which begin to push aside the earlier moral code and in the end eliminate it."

    Is this an admission that overpopulation can become problematic?

    Bingo!

    Of course. It's not an inherently racial position.

    By the way, don't you think trying to put a limit on the number of children a couple can have is controlling?

    Planning a certain kind of society is controlling by its nature.

    Don't you think an anarchy not allowing a state is controlling?

    Don't you think a state not allowing an anarchy is controlling?

    Don't you think an RBE not allowing monetary exchange and competition is controlling?

    Depending upon the kind of society you want to form, it's going to require a certain amount of control.

    There is no getting away from it. By stating you are going to design a society one way and not another, you are implicitly imposing controls and prohibitions on participation in the other way.

    I kind of like all the human rights lawyers in China complaining about the child policy. I think if TZM/RBE were to ever be able to implement a rule or law like that, you're going to have human rights lawyers complaining and annoying the **** out of you. That is of course, if TZM/RBE will even get there which I highly doubt.

    Now you can argue that China can do whatever it wants kind of thing but the difference is that TZM/RBE isn't the government of the world, isn't the President(s) of the world, and has no authority upon the "beautiful unique nations" of the world.
