Globally, the average Christian fertility rate is 2.7 children per woman, which is higher than the global average fertility rate of 2.5.

According to a 2011 Pew Research Center survey, there were 2.19 billion Christians around the world in 2010, more than three times as many as the 600 million recorded in 1910. Catholics in Italy, like in Ireland, are not likely to heed the Popes rules on contraception, but it is in Catholic parts of the third world where lack of contraception is causing unnecessary population growth.

Limit child benefits to 3 (Round up the 2.xx replacement rate) in Ireland, and stop foreign aid both governmental (could also remove charity statue from private groups).

Would you be in favour of culling the herd and who do you think should be culled and how would we reach a fair decision on it? I think rapists and murderers lives might be in danger. Each country could offer up their own to save themselves. After this, we could still have too many. There might be a vote on which nation gets wiped out.
It's horrendous to think we could sink to this level but it's possible. Do you think many would vote for us? We're great so probably not. Not saying anything anti British but they would be one of the favourites to top the vote. They've a history of wiping out millions of people so it could be seen as only right that they reap what they sowed.
Who would you vote for if it came to it? What do you think is going to happen when the population grows to over 11 billion? Do you like brown sauce on your sandwiches? Are you going to choose me for culling?

We've been doing it for thousands of years. We're doing it right now.
We've tried genocide many times before it never seems to halt the population growth.

Its not edgy to talk like this. It just shows your naivety.

Culling of humans has been going on and is going on.

You know.....National governments are allowed do with the Common Agricultural Policy payments as they like (don't be fooled by the representatives of you know who.)....And with technological developments, a true medium sized farm should only be about 40,000 acres, run efficiently like Ryan Air...not the grossly inefficient average 40 acres we have in Ireland.

With the right combination of historical events....We could keep the CAP payments, which are well over 30 billion, and have a highly profitable agricultural sector. It would be like discovering oil under a gold mine.

But, we must start by asking difficult questions....We must ask the question that many fear to speak....The Culchee question.....We have to start asking ourselves this question...and how it will be answered.....we cannot go on living as we are.....Can we survive subsidising these reservations, or must we look manifest destiny in the face...and make the difficult decisions our children will understand and thank us for.....Or will we not....and our children view our weakness with betrayal and disgust...


Roscommon ....would be a good place to begin, the building of a new Ireland...

And it's mentioned in my post. Comprehension fail!

Don't get your hopes up...If there's a war, they won't be dancing fat rural American Trump voters into the Iranian guns....They have the same problem in America as we have here...The same problem

Not sure what the actual ratio of RCC attendees is across sub-saharan Africa and the Middle East, but could well be a minority compared to the other main alternative skygod followers in those two regions, where populaitons are gowing about +5% pa avg.

More to do with lack of education/access to contraception than lack of interest. I'd say they'd be keen on a way to have less mouths to feed.

I agree with the gun nuts on one thing: a tyranny will establish itself in North America within our lifetimes, or the next. The gun nuts thinks it will be a leftist tyranny, but left or right scarcely mean anything when you start to put people into ovens, or eradicate them with whatever technology is at your disposal.

If every couple in the world just had 2 kids the population of the world would decline in a steady and sustainable way.

I'd say in the next 10/15 years this will become "A Thing"
IE: It'll frowned on if you have more than 2 kids.

Maybe they should only offer children's allowance for a Max of 2 kids?
