It has to end sooner or later.

I think Kissinger said, that perfect global population should count from 1-1,5 billion. As overpopulation is not berable, the system enforces that only fittest survive.
Yeah, I definitely agree with you there. The world is overpopulated as it is. Unfortunately, many of the things that we do attempt to keep even more people alive and living. It may sound cruel, but it's almost better to let some people pass or we'll run out of critical resources and life will be difficult for EVERYONE.

I mean half the reason all computers are built in China is because of super loose environmental laws, awful work standards and underpaid employees. So it seems that if robots become the norm, you might as well build that stuff here in the US.
But if the robots are built over in China, and Chinese property is cheaper and isn't covered with all the environmentalist red-tape that keeps projects from happening for years here in the US, then why not build it in China?

You should give the above chapter a read as well.
Yes, never mind that mechanization on farms was replacing slavery in most states.

Tell that to GM,Ford,Chrysler etc workers. Automation displaces jobs, its all only painful till we reach the singularity anyways.

Chinese were doomed either way. Instead of killing themselves in the factories they'll just do it in the streets.

I reckon a coupla 50megaton nukes to selected parts of the country should be the best population control.
