Hi All

The subject is whether our present forms of government or ideas of governing are adequate to meet possible or probable futures? Such as consider that based on current resources its estimated our planet can only viably sustain 9 to 10 billion people which will probably be reached by around 2050 baring a major war, health crisis, natural calamity or population surge. But its believed we are already starting to feel the effects of this increase. From things I've read or heard the largest growth will be in places least able to sustain it such as Africa and Asia.

Some believe there is nothing short of extreme measures in population control which will change this eventuality because the main driver is the evolution of fertility rate. Which is fewer children need to be born. A lot more. Its estimated the world population grows by 83 million a year right now. This is with birth control, worldwide abortions of around 50 million annually and death rate of 50 million annually and trending lower. Which brings up the subject of should we allow more people to die?

Taking this one step more with diminishing resources, technological advances reducing jobs,etc. will population quality as well as quantity control also become an issue? Keep in mind we are breeding deficiencies into our gene pool instead of out as in natural selection. Morbid, but necessary, in a open discussion

If so are democratic forms of government inadequate whereby we will need to accept more authoritarian governments who are allowed more control?
