    We are over-crowding our planet!

    One measure of that is that it is unsafe to live in the cities. When I was a kid, we never locked the back or front door. Now, we have to have bars on the windows and double cylinder deadbolt locks on the doors.

    What was causing the change? When the Earth becomes over-crowded, it presses upon our natural resources and they become depleated. We sense that over-crowding. As we all know in economics, when something becomes too abundant, it loses value. It makes no difference what it is; it applies to people as well as all else. As we become more crowded, we each intuitively view the others with less compassion and more disinterest, even hostility. We resent the hostile driver who crowds us from behind or cuts in too close up ahead. We both feel hostility.

    And it is a hostility that grows. Now, we see "the too-many other people" as having less value. What will it be like in years or decades to come when we become even more crowded? We will see "the other people" as having zero value. But it follows that things can grow even more crowded. Then we must reach the point where we see "the other people" as having NEGATIVE VALUE. Is that improbable?

    It is already happening! Why else do people break down emotionally under the strain, pick up a weapon and go out seeking to kill as many people as they can? They are so stressed that they have no further interest in living and want to die wrecking as much vengence as possible on "the others" (society) which they blame (not unjustly) for their misery.

    Anyone interested in broadening their information on this subject can find it in the the science of social evolution available by way of: civilization-overview dot com

    Are you just spamming us with your website? Why the double OP in two different sub-forums?
