In my view, controlled human reproduction would be essential for a more controlled, peaceful environment. If we keep heading toward the path we are now, we wouldn't be able to produce the food able to sustain life. A one child policy, and any more kids would need government approval. Humans will never learn that having sex produces babies, so they must be taught forcefully.

I will agree that controlled reproduction would help to produce a more equal, stable environment, but it is not fair to force families to only have one child. Many families across the world want to have two or three children.
I am also curious to know what you think the government should do if a family has more than one child without there approval. The normal way for a family is one mom, one dad, and two kids; and that's that.

Very intelligent argument, if we have a technocratic society and viewing reproduction as a major subject. The child would be painlessly eradicated. There should be exceptions when it comes to having more then one child per birth. But people would think that if you have a second child purposely, you're immoral and should be dealt with. Now if we have a global government, each country would have it's own controlled population agenda. Now if there happens to be a economical situation where they would need a boost in population, we wouldn't hesitate.

Population control is a long standing and difficult issue which has always plagued the humans.
It is my understanding, that with a human population in 2013, estimated near 8 billion creatures, and which is projected to be at 9.5 billion near the year 2050(when I will be dead, or not far from it!), we therefore must consider the consequences of a massive population. . We have very vivid and real examples in our recorded human history of, methods used to decrease the "head count". They have been horrible episodes, that have left us always unsettled, on our growing numbers, and how to deal with the burdens of expansive population. Make no mistake, the word is "BURDEN". We have finite and limited resources, to give happy and meaningful life to all. YouTube(R) is ripe with videos addressing much of the concern. Topics like the BILDABERGERS(splg.), FEMA, and all sorts of suspected conspiracies aimed at methods for future population control, can be viewed. These videos are frightening to say the least, and open pathways in ones brain, which heretofore, where unexplored!
