I believe complete world peace that so many humans want would be detrimental to our world. Death is a sad population control that exists and keeps out world balanced. From World peace, we would suffer much less casualties and that would lead to overpopulation. Overpopulation would only lead to the deficiency of our resources. One of the more important resources such as food. With this casualty, crime rate would go up and the world would start to break apart from all the killing and theft. The environment would also be drastically changed. With overpopulation, we would need to inhabit the preservation of nature, which would lead to the deaths and even extinction of our friendly species. This would only cost more money to our debt and there would be a chance for it to worsen. I believe complete world peace would only disorient the flow of the world.

Thank you pro for allowing me to debate this with you. As you are the instigator and have not specified if we have a shared BOP, I will not be sharing it.

" From World peace, we would suffer much less casualties and that would lead to overpopulation." In this statement you are assuming that war is the only thing that is keeping the world from overpopulating. More babies were aborted in 2008 than people died in 7 wars combined. That means war casualties are incredibly low and would not be able to control population to the extent you are perceiving it.

" With this casualty, crime rate would go up and the world would start to break apart from all the killing and theft" China is the most populated country in the world. My source will say that crime rates in the United States are far higher than China even though they have millions more people. If overpopulation would create crime, why does China have lower crime rates than the U.S.?

"The environment would also be drastically changed. With overpopulation, we would need to inhabit the preservation of nature, which would lead to the deaths and even extinction of our friendly species." I am using China as an example again. They have just passed an environmental protection law. Yes overpopulation could cause problems for the environment but these problems can be prevented with simple regulations.

"This would only cost more money to our debt and there would be a chance for it to worsen." The U.S. has a tax on carbon emissions right now. This tax takes money from the businesses that are harming the environment and gives it to the government. This money could be used to protect the environment further or just go to our debt.

On a side note, I believe one who calls for population control should be the first to volunteer their own life.
