Sustainable development requires human ingenuity. People are the most important resource,Buffy
I agree except for one issue. Do you really believe that no matter how many you have, more is always better? That idea strikes me as thoughtless!
You would first have to determine which fields of study are most important.
Now here you are failing to take into account the fact that our ignorance means that we essentially have no idea as to what knowledge is most important. My position is that all fields of research should be studied and extended.
Furthermore, I have been around for a long time and have run across no serious cases of inbreeding among the people I have known personally. In my opinion "inbreeding" is a phenomena which rarely occurs within an open and free society.
The issue everyone absolutely refuses to look at is the absolute excess of humanity which is in fact the single most important component of the dangerous and destructive activities of humanity. I think it is quite obvious that there are more people on earth than are needed. If I am in error, please point out the need for this massive population and explain why you think the resultant suffering is a worth while component. Should mankind actually invest in ignorance?
My impression is that you just don't want to think about such things. All I am asking is what you think the population ought to be and you seem to be scared to death that thinking about that question requires you to think about how to achieve such a thing. That is nothing more than a reason for not thinking!!!! Please---
