What is your solution then? You can't temper people into population control, most countries wouldn't follow suit. Brazil, India, and much of Africa is unfettered in that regard. Even the Chinese tried. That "1-child act" was good on paper, until it turned out most parents were choosing boys. Now China gets to have a male to female ratio crisis in the next decade. Unless people lose their empathy, fall into a global war, or are willing to live under strict lifestyle rules, population control will never occur.

How would you do that? Just start killing off random people? Granted, there is an overpopulation problem, especially in places like China. But, there is no good way to go about doing that unless we discover a planet that can support life, and then find a way to send people there.

How would that help? We landed on the moon over 50 years ago, yet are prepping for a Mars landing in 2030. Even then, it would only be a few people here or there. A potential, humane solution to the population control aspect would take centuries. but that's not to mention the social aspect. How would you justify sending people to a different planet? It would be up to their choosing, unless you want to force them...

For some people, there are many countries in the world, that doesn't mean they want to leave their home for them...

This makes her sound very insensitive, but something tells me these statements were at least a little out pf context. Who brought it up? Did the father say something first?
