Overpopulation or overabundance is a phenomenon that occurs when a species’ population becomes larger than the carrying capacity of its environment. This may occur from increased birth rates, less predation or lower mortality rates, and large scale migration, according to Wikipedia.
According to Fin24 user Glyn Morgan, there is one subject that is NEVER broached and that is overpopulation. The Chinese had their “One Child Policy” from the 60’s till it was amended recently. It was a very heavy-handed policy that was started just after the “Great Leap Forward” (A five year Chinese economic plan) which caused the deaths by starvation of around 30 million Chinese. What would China be like if they had not had that policy? What would the Chinese population be now? What would be the state of their economy?
I believe that South Africa is showing the effects of overpopulation now. There should be checks on “un-earned income” for the super-rich (The rich giving themselves huge bonuses while the economy is going down. Government politicians acting like they actually earned their fat incomes) as well as efforts to raise the level of the poor. If the poor had only as many children as they could afford it would help immensely in reducing poverty. What would be the effect of the government offering incentives to people to have fewer children? I am not saying we should have a “One Child Policy” but we should have as many children as we can afford. Maybe offer a once-off cash incentive for people to have “the snip” after full consultations?
This is NOT a race thing but an economics thing. There will be objections by people saying that if or when we can up-lift the poor they will naturally have fewer children so there is no need for a family planning policy. Which comes first, prosperity or smaller families? I say both must be seriously worked on at the same time. One will aid the other.
What are your views on this contentious issue? Right now it is being swept under the carpet.
Just for interest sake, I have been to China numerous times and have spoken about their population policy. Mostly they seem to be positive about it but acknowledge that it was heavy-handed. They welcome the changes.
- Predation – the killing of one living organism by another for food.
- Broached – to raise a difficult issue/matter for discussion
- “The snip” – to remove or cut off something (sterilization)
- Heavy-handed – overly forceful.
- Legal immigrants – foreign born-born people, legally admitted to the country.
