I'm on the right and the sad news that you must digest is there isn't enough resources for all 7 billion people. That is a fact that will only get worse as we continue to add more. Most will suffer and there really isn't anything a leftist government can do about that other than bring everyone down to the same level of suffering.

Well this is simply not true.

I'm no fan of ballooning populations myself because I'm kind of a misanthrope but resource quanity is not the problem. There is more than enough to feed, clothe and house up to 15 billion people, just not at the same standard as the resource-guzzling United States.

The problem is logistics and political will. That's what we don't have to provide for 10+ billion people.


"there really isn't anything a leftist government can do about that other than bring everyone down to the same level of suffering"

So be it. It seems more fair to me than some ad hoc chauvinism.

In any case, I don't think the suffering is really required. What is, in your opinion, the lifestyle that is possible to be supported by resources we have for 7 billion people?
