If we use technology in a correct manner then we can have a growing population, and still flourish. I like the idea of a venus project type of society.
With all the talk of apocalyptic disasters that have been going on for years, it hasn't stopped people from breeding at an ever increasing rate, so that tells me that even though people may like to scare themselves silly with end of the world scenarios, it still isn't enough to stop them from bringing life here.
I'd like to think we will use technology correctly, but it seems like humans always seem to find a way to destroy everything with the amazing things they create. We haven't learned how to handle power without it going to our heads and going insane.
What would you propose as a better distribution of resources? Just to give an idea of what could work better...
