            It is , but sadly this won't change and also, the pharmaceutic business is still strong and won't let people live for a few more days, months or years.

                It's a worldwide problem because it affects the world, but its roots are in countries with low standards of living and high birth rates. So the problem of overpopulation could be limited if either those countries manage to raise their standards of living (such as sanitary facilities, education, clean water, fair working conditions, safe housing, etc.) and, in the process, lower their birth rates to an acceptable number (<2,1 per family) or, in case of incapability, get helped by other countries, which are in a better social and economic state.

                  The problem is that if those countries raise their standards of living, people will want stuff like cars, computers, tv's, holiday's, etc. Mother earth has not enough resources to give everyone these standards of living.

                    Most of the people who do charity do it just for the sake of fame. But in fact, they do not understand the very problem of overpopulation and do not help to solve it. Millions of people starve daily. This is a worldwide problem, not individual countries.

                    I have been exploring geopolitics for many years. You can read articles and essays on overpopulation on my blog. This is great information for anyone interested in contemporary events in the world.

                      RayRay : You're talking about two major economic principles there. If ressources are limited, you can either hand them out equally or to the people willing to pay the most for them. The latter is currently happening and apparently not very effective. What you can do is what's e.g. happening on a national base in many European countries: You can guarantee the people a minimal standard of living by providing certain goods by the state. And this refers to Maslow's 'hierarchy of needs'... The goods you were talking about are already on a higher step of the hierarchy. If the standards of living are raised in a way that at least the bottom needs are satisfied, this will already impact the birth rates of the affected countries significantly as there is a direct correlation between standards of living and birth rates worldwide. But you have got a point, that money would have to come from somewhere and that would, unfortunately, be the 1st and 2nd World countries.

                          Corona can spread like it does, because of overpopulation. But once again, our country is putting money before health.

                            it’s like saying the mattress industry conspires to ensure people are sleepy at the end of the day.

                              not true. the fault lies in the people managing the resources within their own jurisdictions. We could divide everything equally but how each society benefits really depends on those in charge. Dont tell me we dont need people to be in charge of such things.

                                Part of me does wonder if the coronavirus has been manufactured to reduce the earth’s population, and all of the world’s leaders are in on it.

                                      It sounds cruel, but Western countries struggle with the demogaphic change and here we have got a virus that's mostly a danger for the elder... You could try to find a connection between both.

                                        Dolphins and lots of fish have been spotted in the canals of Venice. The water is clear now.
