World Population Day

This World Population Day created by the United Nations in 1989.  Even assuming that fertility levels will continue to decline, the global population is expected to reach 8.6 billion in 2030, 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100, according to the medium-variant projection. Can the Earth support this number of people indefinitely? 

Here we are as a species, equipped with more knowledge and technology than at any previous point in our history and yet we have never been closer to our complete and utter annihilation.

Socialists, however, view population as a resource not a liability. It is an asset. We have enough food to feed all the people. But we do not have the economic structure that can take the food to hungry mouths.
