I see scary sounding numbers but in my experience the numbers are usually showing us one 'wave' behind what is actually going on. I wonder what those population numbers would be like if you removed abortion. Maybe they're just heavily manipulated? Western countries are all in upheaval with what appears to be a sharp trend toward nationalism. People are discovering self-reliance in Canada, Poland, Russia etc (just from the rise in bushcraft videos alone). Here in Texas we have people moving from Austin to small dying cities and doing well with new small businesses. As more technical schools open and we trend from leftist academia, and the associated debt, we may again see Main Street, as opposed to Wall Street, dominating the economy. Times they are a changin...I have recently looked into this. The scientists researching this know that the population is declining in such an alarming rate in western nations that within 2 or 3 generations entire societies will basically disappear. It will start with Japan for example.
The problem is that those global projections do not show this, because they include Africa and India, which is basically the only places in the world were the population is not declining rapidly.
But even at those places, modern technology leads to rapid downfall of fertility rate, within one generation even in Africa we will see sub-replacement levels of fertility.
When this topic will come into the public atttention it will probably be already too late. Many people still think we will see population explosions, but the most dramatic data from Africa is ALL extrapolation. No one knows how many people live in Africa, they do not hold reliable census.
Within 20 years we will see some societies becoming entirely children-free! It's an exponential process, fewer children lead to even fewer children in the generation that follows, so I think we will see dramatic scenes within 20-30 years.
The countrisides are already drying out. You see old people there, when they die within 30 years these places will be empty!
Recently they had protests in Spain, where this process is already very far ahead. The countryside in spain is a desert. Since the young people all leave for the cities, within 40-60 years or so the very concept of a "village" will no longer really exist. With people moving into cities, the fertility rate declines further, as people are focused on working.
It is remarkable to me how almost no one sees that we are dying out.

The collapse of the South Korean population: the countdown has begun
South Korea's fertility rate set to hit record low of 0.96
Let's look at the data for South Korea:
South Korea's fertility-rate crisis is so dire that the country is offering cash to entice rich people to have kids
But this study implied that the fertility rate remained constant at 1.19 - 5 years later we are already at 0.95. It was 1.05 in 2017.
It also does not take into account that a society already becomes extinct long before the last birth, due to the society simply collapsing. The data clearly shows that we are approaching zero.
Only 326,900 babies were born last year in a country of 51 million, down 8.6% from the previous year. How long until Koreans simply stop having children tue do lack of support? Maybe 5-10 years?
So I think what we are seeing here is a radical restrucring process how society works, and the media is ignoring this issue, probably because it plays into the depopulation plans, which are ongoing.
I think this lack of children explains some of my feelings what is happening to society. The so called "baby boomers" of the 60s were able to initiate a couple of changes in society due to their enormous size. They had the power to overthrow old concepts. The current generations are basically invisible, and are so few, that we can not work together productively. The internet is an additional factor in keeping everyone lonely and focused on themselves.
Basically since our environment is not limited (as we don't live on a spinning globe), exponential growth of the human population is not only possible, but probably ideal to expanding the human experience, exploring other realms beyond our small "earth".

Doesn't it just 'feel' like people are waking up? Like animals before an earthquake, we know something is coming even if we don't know what. And, if enough people spread out and rediscover skills we might just make it out of the next 'event' in decent shape. I know I don't want to be anywhere near a large city if it happens.
