What would be a possible course of action if the world depletes its resources due to an exponential population explosion? How can we gear society and politics to make a new sustainable system?

It may be inevitable that we will be faced with an ultimatum on how to manage scarce resources in an unbelievably overcrowded world. What's the solution then?

If this thread just becomes an excuse for fools to come in and say "ololol kill all the joos! olol", it might as well get deleted, but hopefully we can attempt to answer an uncomfortable question that could prove/is proving to be a turning point in modern civilization.

IMO, I don't have an answer to the political course of action, but socially such a situation would lead to an extreme watering down of the worth of human life itself, probably leading an Orwellian state of control. People would be nothing more than basic units of organization.

That being said, eating the rich may not be so far fetched

TLDR: What would be a possible course of action if the world depletes its resources due to an exponential population explosion? How can we gear society and politics to make a new sustainable system?

I would avoid using the phrase "Final solution." Gives people the wrong idea.
^^The above is a Cryptic Metaphor^^

Uh, we're already using up more resources than we have. It won't take long and it's not gonna look pretty when the resources are so scarce we have to fight for them.

Sure it will. We bring back the Colosseum, and have the rejects of society fight to the death. We divide all of the meat from the losers, and the winner lives to fight another day.

Two men enter, one man leaves!

I actually like the idea, being vastly superior in close quarters combat. But what if I wanted a quick snack or something, would I have to fight people all the time? I eat a lot, and often.

I only suggested squirrels because they're small and weak, and if there's one there's normally more. I love squirrels too, but if it came down to it I would kill one. Maybe we should team up and rid the world of GOP candidates and chihuahuas?

I think the line labelled "population" should be "population growth". What's going to happen that kills so many of us?


Read the OP.
What would be a possible course of action if the world depletes its resources due to an exponential population explosion?


The thread title can only have a limited number of words, therefore I left out the word 'growth'. However, it should be fairly obvious to anyone especially because of the graph, the context in which I am speaking.
