Civilization has its issues and some of them are horrifying. But I am certain about one thing – no matter how bad it gets. we always swing back from the bring. At horrible cost but the world keeps going. Overpopulation is not even close to being an issue. Looking at my own country the countrysides are emptier than ever even with growing populations. People concentrate as it’s more fun to be close to each other. We have old problems, we have created new problems. We will solve them. But to any student of history, it’s all a deja vu.
Elon Musk, while discussing his Teslabot concept, suggested that people who claim the world is overpopulated are helping to cause the downfall of civilisation.
