The human population grows unchecked! The numbers that match reality, supplied by YHWH Ptaah. As of December 31, 2019 (midnight): 9'060'794'141 According to earthly population statistics, the population as of January 10, 2019 was around 7,545,276,910 people (source: www.census.gov). A massive misjudgment! What to do? Please read the article «Population growth without end? - Put an end to the taboo! », Which summarizes our findings and presents concrete solutions!
For more than 30 years, the FIGU members have been trying to make people and especially the government aware that the rapid population growth on Earth poses a tremendous danger and must be stopped immediately, and that it must then be reduced to a planet-compatible level Has. (At that time, according to our calculations, this tolerable measure was set at 529 million people, because it can be used to ensure that the resources are abundant for this population, that nature’s ability to regenerate is preserved, and large areas of the flora and fauna remain where it can develop undisturbed.) We feel obliged to this enlightenment because we have recognized that the fate of humanity is decided by the solution or non-solution of this greatest of all pressing problems of our time. Overpopulation is actually the main problem, because the more people live on Earth, the bigger all other problems become, and the more the need for energy sources such as oil, natural gas and uranium, but also for fresh water, housing and food etc. Waste, exhaust gases, waste heat and noise are growing in line with population growth and increasing purchasing power, and huge, formerly fertile ground areas are disappearing under asphalt and concrete, or are becoming too salty and drying out. Speaking of resources: it is a significant difference whether 7500 million instead of 500 million lunches are prepared on earth every day (with wood, gas or electricity), whether instead of 2 billion (= 2000 million) fuel-consuming and exhaust-gas producing vehicles, airplanes and heating ‹Only› whose 50 million are in use, or whether 2000 million or just a few dozen million people use water in dry areas. The situation is so easy to understand that one has to wonder why the issue is not prominently dealt with in the media every day, and one cannot avoid the impression that the problem of overpopulation is being suppressed. This conclusion is obvious, and in fact, ignoring the importance of this problem and the urgency of finding a solution, this ignoring is tantamount to neglecting the duty to provide information.
In the sixties there were many opportunities to take part in peace demonstrations, in which many flags with the peace symbol were waving. While marching and ‹All we are saying is, give peace a chance›, no one realized that the very popular peace symbol ☮ was the symbol for death and War is about.
“All men are created equal» is a principle that we Americans have heard repeatedly throughout our lifetime. It appears in our Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776, and is considered the foundation of American democracy. This principle was intended to guarantee the basic freedoms and natural rights of all citizens of the United States. Many Americans, however, including women, ethnic minorities and people with lesser abilities, poorer education and little or no material possessions have been denied equality from day one of our national independence. As a matter of fact, the Father of our Constitution, James Madison, did his best to limit this universal principle to white, male property owners by inventing a principle of his own, known as the «unequal faculties of acquiring property», which he explained in ‹The Federalist no. 10›. According to this principle, property owners, who were solely wealthy white men back in 1787, are endowed with unequal faculties, from which their rights to acquire property originate. Furthermore, the first object of government, according to Madison, is the protection of these faculties. In other words, the main job of government is to protect the privileged property owners from the unprivileged populace (see «All Men Are Created Equal?» by Steven Hill). Has equality in America improved since 1776? Well today, the top 20 percent of American earners take over half of the national income, while the bottom 20 percent only take 3.4 percent. Moreover, the U.S. has 269 billionaires, who live in unimaginable luxury, while 37 million Americans live below the poverty line, many of whom, by the way, work two or three jobs (see «37 Million Poor Hidden In The Land Of Plenty» by Paul Harris). On a global basis, the world’s 356 richest families own 40 percent of humanity’s wealth, while the remaining 7 billion members of our global family have to more or less fight for a slice of the rest of the pie. Nearly half of the human population is losing this fight and now lives in poverty. Inequality is the root cause of all discrimination, intolerance, disrespect, degradation, oppression, exploitation, mismanagement and slavery. Combined with a rapidly growing population, it inevitably leads to mass unemployment, the collapse of traditional social services like health care and old age assistance, a shortage of food, water, housing and energy and ultimately to poverty, hunger and disease. These consequences have already hit many of America’s hard-working lower and middle class citizens, whereas the upper class continues to swim in luxury due to the unequal right of propertied citizens to acquire more wealth, more riches and more property than the rest of humanity, based on their unequal faculties.
