Is population control necessary ?

 

In the light of the explosion of human population on earth, population control is definitely necessary. From one and three quarters billion in 1900, the population of the earth has multiplied to more than six billion in 2000, and no end to this growth seems to be in sight.

Go to any town or city today and there are the ubiquitous traffic jams, long queues and crowded shopping areas. In such a crowded environment, it is not surprising to hear of accidents, clashes and friction between people.

On the employment scene, jobs are harder and harder to come by. In the times of my grandfather, a person with a primary education can easily find work and earn a decent living. secondary and education is rare and anyone who can make it that far is looked up on as a great person. Today there are many unemployed university graduates. A person with just a primary education is practically unemployable, except for the most menial of tasks. The sheer number of people vying for limited jobs has created this difficult situation.

More people mean more need of everything -- more jobs, more houses, more cars, more road and more problems to be solved. The strain on the earth's resources is unprecedented. Land is cleared to build more houses for the masses. Jungles and forests disappear as human beings encroach into them. There is less and less space for natural fauna and flora. Many of them are driven into extinction.

The disappearance of our jungles, forests and other natural habitats causes a change in the global climatic conditions. Already there are signs of global warming and other drastic changes to he earth. natural disasters strike without warning as these changes occur.

Living on earth is now a struggle for all but the very rich. Everyone has to work just to get by, if they can find work at all. Those who cannot find decent work resort to other means, usually illegal. Crime, organized or otherwise, is a problem in all nations.

There is a dire need for the world's population to be controlled, or at least, maintained at a sustainable level. As it is, the population keeps increasing and no effective effort is done to control it. If this continues, the day will come when the old earth can no longer sustain the human population. This means that many or most will die, probably because of nuclear wars that would have broken out in our struggle to survive. Or perhaps, human begins would have learnt to control their population some future time and thus avert the possible annihilation of the human race. It is entirely up to us to determine our destiny.
