how would you vote for a population control mechanism? No political build up, glorification, or terror, 95% kill rate, under 1 hour execution time, single individuals in milliseconds and unbeknownst to us, completely random and evenly distributed geographically.
 
Arguments for: technology is near equivalence to the human mind and body. exploitation is still rampant and political/economical change is deliberately slow. see corruption data in world happiness report. compare humans to other species, whales, dolphins, elephant, other primates. Fat people get on a treadmill when they need to lose weight.

Why don't we work on increasing the carrying capacity of the planet...or would that be too much work for some of you?

If we could find some way to control the growing population without actively killing out the people we already have, (such as implementing strict birth control methods on a global scale, et cetera,) I'd be completely for it. 


History will remember Trump supporters as brainwashed as*holes who voted against their own freedom, self-preservation, and right to live.

I'd agree with population control so long as the people implementing it were fair and humane, which probably makes it impossible. 

 

IMO, the most effective population control measures would be making contraceptives (including abortion pills) and abortions free, and ending various legal and cultural barriers to women getting educations and jobs. 

 

Taking it a step farther, I think the government should pay women between 17 and 35 to get birth control implants (e.g. - IUDs) installed in their bodies. Every year they had it in, they would get $1,000, tax-free. The investment would pay for itself many times over. 

 

I don't agree with killing adults in the name of population control, and I don't think we're close to needing to do that anyway.

As humans we are made to have kids. It is one of the most joyous things that can happen to anyone. The right to procreate is exactly that- a right. I won't even entertain the idea of indiscrimate culling as a "solution" to our problems.

The growth of computation is doubly exponential growth.

I'm a little worried by the way you specified "adults"...

"Adults" in my usage means anyone who has already emerged from a uterus.

Technically, anyone who has not emerged from the uterus is still a fetus and not a person, so you could just say people.
