OVER POPULATION

NOW WE ARE ENTERING INTO A VERY DELICATE SUBJECT. IF ANYONE OUT THERE IS OFFENDED BY MY MUSINGS, BE PATIENT !! I STATED IN A EARLIER BLOG THAT THE HUMAN RACE WAS SIMILAR TO CANCER CELLS THAT MINDLESSLY COMSUME A BODY.  MEDICAL SCIENCE IS CONSTANTLY TRYING TO ADVANCE THE WAR AGAINST CANCER CELLS. THE GOAL IS TO KILL THE CANCER CELLS THAT ARE TRYING TO CONSUME THE HOST BODY AND SAVE THE HOST.  SO NOW WE ARE THE CANCER CELLS AND OUR PLANET IS THE HOST,  WE FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL THE SAME WAY THAT CANCER CELLS FIGHT TO SURVIVE. RIGHT NOW OUR PLANET IS JUST BEGINNING TO FIGHT BACK.  I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT OUR PLANET (OR GOD) WILL ALLOW US TO DESTROY LIFE ON THIS PLANET.   AS OUR POPULATION INCREASES, POLUTION INCREASES. THE WEATHER IS CHANGING. POLAR CAPS ARE MELTING. INCREASED EARTHQUAKES, SUNAMIS, STRANGE WEATHER PATTERNS ARE ALL “CHANGING”. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS ARE ON EDGE,  CONSUMPTION OF NATURAL RESOURCES IS INCREASING IN PROPORTION TO OUR POPULATION GROWTH .OUR PLANET CAN NOT SUSTAIN PERPETUAL POPULATION INCREASES ALONG WITH ALL THE OTHER PROBLEMS THAT EFFECT ALL OF US. IN THE PAST MANY  CULTURES HAVE HAD MULTIPLE CHILDREN FOR SECURITY  IN THEIR ELDER YEARS.  WHEN WE GET OLDER AND IF WE HAVE MANY CHILDREN, THE IDEA WAS TO PROVIDE SECURITY BY HAVING MORE CHILDREN AND FAMILY AROUND TO ASSIST US IN OUR ELDER YEARS PHYSICLLY AS WELL AS FINANCIALLY..  MY OBSERVATION HAS BEEN THAT MANY POORER ETHNIC CULTURES TEND TO GIVE MORE SUPPORT TO THEIR ELDERS EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE GREATER FINANCIAL OBSTACLES. IN REALITY THERE IS NOT MUCH CHOICE.  IN THE USA THERE IS A DECREASING NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT CAN AFFORD  $ 5000.00 USD PER MONTH FOR A ASSISTED LIVING FACILITY FOR JUST ONE PARENT. THAT  COST IS A MEDIAN COST. RELIGION IS ALSO A FACTOR. I DO NOT THINK PEOPLE SHOULD STOP HAVING CHILDREN. BUT WHEN GOD DIRECTED US TO ” GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY!”  I DO NOT BELIEVE HE MEANT TO SAY ” GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY EVEN IF YOU CAN’T FEED  THE CHLDREN YOU ALREADY HAVE”  THERE ARE ALOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE WHAT I AM ABOUT TO WRITE….BUT HERE IT IS ANYWAY.  I KNOW MANY GOOD PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD WOULD GIVE MORE MONEY TO HELP THE VERY POOR AND HUNGRY IF THEY COULD HAVE CONFIDENCE THAT IN 9 MONTHS THERE WOULD NOT BE ANOTHER MOUTH TO FEED.   THAT IS VERY HARSH BUT I THINK IT IS TRUE. MANY PEOPLE CONSIDER  THAT MONEY TO FEED THE POOR IS JUST DELAYING THE INEVITABLE AND IS NOT A SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM. SOME PEOPLE EVEN THINK IT INCREASES THE PROBLEM.  I AM GUILTY OF HAVING THAT THOUGHT MYSELF FOR YEARS. WE ALL KNOW THE ANALOGY OF ‘GIVE A MAN A FISH AND HE EATS FOR A DAY BUT GIVE HIM FISHING POLE AND HE CAN FEED HIS FAMILY’.    WE ALL KNOW THAT BECAUSE IT MAKES SENSE.  THE QUESTION IS HOW  TO IMPLEMENT THAT IDEA INTO OUR WORLD?  THE ANSWER : I DO NOT KNOW !  I WISH I DID ! THE PEACE CORP AND UNICEF AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS DO WONDERFUL WORK BUT THEY CAN’T SAVE THE WORLD.  BUT..THEY ARE TRYING… WITH HARD WORK AND SELFLESS DEDICATION. THESE PEOPLE ARE WORKING TO MAKE  A DIFFERENCE.  THEY ARE BETTER PEOPLE THAN I AM.   IF OUR WORLD COULD PICK ONE POVERTY STRICKEN AREA AND MAKE IT SEMI SELF SUSTAINING, AND IF NOBODY IS STEALING THE MONEY,  THE DONATIONS WILL FLOW IN IN !

PEOPLE DO NOT DONATE THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY UNLESS THEY ARE  CONFIDENT THEIR DONATION MONEY IS BEING SPENT WISELY AND EFFICIENTLY.  ALL WE NEED IS SOMEBODY WITH A PLAN.  WE NEED SOMEBODY REALLY INVENTIVE TO COME UP WITH A PLAN. I DO NOT HAVE A PLAN BUT WE NEED ONE.  IT COULD UNITE PEOPLE, AND SAVE PEOPLE .  SOMEONE IS OUT THERE AND THEY HAVE A CRAZY IDEA AND MAYBE THEY DO NOT WANT TO ACT ON IT OR SHARE THEIR IDEA.  NOW IS THE TIME FOR CRAZY IDEAS.  WE HAVE TO THINK OUTSIDE  THE BOX.   DO YUOU KNOW SOMEBODY ??
