Fixing SA: Adopt or Die

2012-11-16 08:30

With the world population at 7.048 billion and counting (as on 27 October 2012), we have to ask the question, Just how long will the earth be able to support humanity if the population continues to grow at its current rate? - It is predicted that the world population will cross the 10 billion mark in the next 50 years.

We could waste another couple of years by subtly approaching this issue but in the end unforced or unregulated methods will prove useless. I say this mainly because I have learnt from my time on this planet that humanity/society is sure to disappoint, I will be the first to acknowledge the amazing feats we’ve achieved, the endless discoveries and inventions but despite all the progress there will always be a bunch of lunatics who, to this day, openly oppose knowledge, equality, freedom of speech, open mindedness or choice.

 In the meantime it’ll benefit you to realise Procreation is simply becoming too selfish an act to be logically justified! Before rendering this a ridiculous statement, bear with me, other than natural childbirth being synonymous to enduring physical torture. There are about 2 million orphans in SA alone, if you really have the need to love/raise a child, you surely aren’t short of options.
