Agreed. You have made some very valid points here. With birth control virtually non-existent in so many parts of the globe, ever-flaming political conflicts, and numerous other serious happenings in so many nations, I personally, cannot see the situation easing even slightly, most certainly not within the span of our lifetimes. Unlike a balloon, our planet cannot expand in girth and size to accommodate its ever-exploding population growth. Solution? (if, indeed, there is any) Totally light-years beyond my level of intelligence, for certain....... "Live long and prosper"
