And why must a world naturally swollen with people, be dystopian? What if it's a bit more like "paradise?" Could that be partly why the people are still breeding so much? Still, that's too much of the "zero sum argument." You don't always have to get rid of something, to find or make room for more people. Things that still matter to people, would likely still be around. House pets, house plants, etc. But some space-wasting, food-devouring, garden-raiding elephants might have to go, as India's huge human population continues to naturally expand. There would still be plenty of zoos, if they can attract people to visit them and keep them in business. But look at all the people who say "Look around. There's all sorts of place you can put more people." Well how do you argue against that? I wouldn't dare, as I happen to agree. "Well have at it then. Fill all those places with people if you can, it's all the more people to experience life." I want for people to go on having their precious darling babies, and I would much like to have a "large" family as well. It would be cruel and strange to ask people to "hide" their pregnancies. No, let them bulge naturally. Relax and be proud to bring more precious people to live. I heard that's what tilt steering was invented for, so that pregnant women could drive. If the planet is becoming "pregnant" with people, let it bulge proudly, put its maternity clothes on. No on second thought, the pregnant bulging belly naturally poofing out, is fine as well. We should be more actively pronatalist, agreeing with the many compelling reasons why people have as many children as they do. A more pronatalist culture should ADAPT more readily to "what must be." Let the cities grow larger and closer together, especially if or as driven by the natural increase of all the people within and around them. Whether or not "the more the merrier," it is all the more people around who can benefit from living.
