I firmly believe the Earth holds enough resources (including money) for the population. It's just distributed wrong. How much food do Americans throw out every day? How much more food than we NEED do we consume? (Same with many, many other resources) It's not that there are not enough resources out there. They are just being grossly misused.
|and since I try to eat organic as much as possible, it made me uncomfortable with the idea of contributing to population growth.. But I can't even find that statistic now- maybe it was just propoganda for chemical fertilizers..|
I am a strong believer that the key to having enough resources is not merely less waste, but more productivity and smarter uses of those resources. (Eg - Why do most Americans plant grass, instead of food crops?)
If you could maximize the production of your land and use your children as natural resources to help cultivate your land and provide food (or other resources) not only for yourselves, but for other families as well, your children are actually an asset to productivity and not merely consumers.
|You are so, so right. I've often wondered why more people don't plant food, but spend so much time and energy on their grass.|
