...for one whole year.

Now that you're paying attention, I have an idea and I would very much enjoy some other views on it other than mine.


I was contemplating our worlds overpopulation problem and I came to the conclusion it simply cannot be solved by killing. Not only is that un ethical, but politically incorrect and would not be excepted by the mainstream public. So, what if for one year nobody had children. Alot of people die a day but alot more are born, so what would happen if we could somehow keep people from having kids for a year, all people all over the world.


Any and all ideas and comments are welcomed.
I havn't changed this thing in a year.

Why though? For what reason? I can see where it would be seen as such but for what reasons do you think? I don't want just blatant answers, but real extrovert stuff here guys.


P.S. Don't take this as a chance to try and boost you're E-Peen and say, just kill them all, be serious bro.

...unplanned pregnancies?

Seriously, the only way this could work is if no one on Earth got laid for an entire year. That would obviously result in WW3 making the whole thing pointless.

Edit: Ooooor... we could make HETEROsexuality illegal...

I could get down with that.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.

I am serious bro, if you kill everyone then there is no problem with overpopulation.

If I wanted to boost my E-Peen I would've told you about the low low prices on candy at your local dairy.

But 4 sirus, people want children, I don't know why, but the government telling you no doesn't stop people. I dunno where I was trying to go with this, I really didn't even think about seriously answeing your question.

Edit: World wars are a great way to lower populations. . . Though the strong die out and the weak are left to corrupt future generations, but still

I'm so bored right now

This would be incredible hard to do in any western world due to the occupation of christians who appose abortion.

We should just choose a number of random civilians and cut out their hearts on top of a pyramid "for our new gods." People will then buy it and accept it.

As I generally don't like the government telling me what I can and can not do, I'd be rather opposed to something like this. If I want to knock my woman up (and she is in agreement obviously) the government has no right to stick it's pesky nose in our business.

War doesn't pick out who it wants to kill, it's indiscriminate, weak and strong people die, if you could classify someone as that. War is certainly not a great way to lower populations, you'd have to be morally flawed to think that it's a good thing.

On topic, however, I agree with Craigo, rather than diminishing resources and life, we should concentrate on bringing the third world forward.

Plus, no sane government would propose an abolition of pregnancy- they'd be ousted in seconds.

So all the people who want to have a child wait one year, then have it? That would only lessen the number of people on the planet for one year and not by a significant amount. You'd just end up with twice as many kids born the following year.
...Bleep Bloop...

Not having any new additions to the population for an entire year would have exponential negative effect. Plus, you would have to do some serious planning seeing as it takes nine months to take a human shit. PLUS it would be pretty much impossible to enforce.
#18
Just do what china does and limit people to only having one child. Also educate the poorer countries where their population is rapidly expanding whereas developed countries have a generally stable population. But really china is the way to go as they're the only ones doing anything about over population.

Well, as people are always going to shag and pop out sprogs, stopping the whole world from reproducing just wouldn't work. And I don't even care about this 'problem'

Stupid idea. The best chance we have at curbing the population is to finally bring developing countries into the first world.


That's a good idea.

So TS, would you be the one to tell the world that nobody is allowed to **** and that any foetuses that do turn up are getting immediatley terminated?

I think you'd have to spend the rest of your life in a bunker in Antartica with a couple of thousand bodygaurds.

1) Put something in the water supply to make everyone infertile
2) Have an antidote
3) You have to work out what the antidote is
4) You have to make it yourself
5) Only the intelligent/practical people can hae children
6) ???
7) profit!!!

They tried similar things in China and India, forced abortions/sterilisations, look how well that worked out.


Well in china - population wise at least - actually relatively well, it's much much smaller than it could have been and is now at a roughly manageable level...

Apart from all the girls who are killed because the parents want a son to look after them in their old age?

There's a huge imbalance in gender, with nowhere near enough females.

Pollution-induced infertility, increased shortage of food and water and the subsequent conflicts for what's left will take care of that. Don't worry.

Actually, what we will have is a world full of Chinese, Indians and Arabs with very little white people. lol

This is the only reasonable solution to over population. The other would be to find more places to populate, but we are a bit far from that, yet.

Developing the 3rd world is the solution to the overpopulation issue. That and GM food. We don't need to resort to bizarre solutions.

Exactly. This idea is inefficient, impossible to implement and immoral at best.

People should have to apply for a license to have kids. When a male child is born there must be a reversable operation performed which stops them being able to get a woman pregnant. When they want a child they apply for a license and if they're considered worthy then they can.
If your on benefits as a lifestyle choice you can't have kids. Don't like it get a job.
