You planning to kill yourself before you need assistance in your old age?
There is absolutely no need for more than a billion people.
Fine. Lead by example, good sir...
Depopulation is a disaster because in democracies, power is proportional to your numbers. If you don't have kids and your nation is invaded by millions of third world immigrants who want your money, your land, they have it.
Look at California, over 50% of newborn babies there are hispanic, but they're still considered a minority and given preferential access to education, contracts, jobs, etc.
If the depopulation was even, it wouldn't be a problem, but we're witnessing massive depopulation in the industrialized western world coinciding with massive population booms in the third world (made possible by the largesse of our dying civilization). In a sense, we are financing our own extinction.
“Why is depopulation a disaster?”
I think because human beings are, on the whole, more of an asset than a deficit to this world.
I wonder how you will like being dominated by the Chinese race...think you will have the same life style that you have...
