While we send billions in aid to Haiti, we fail to understand their enormous population dilemma that will not be cured by food, water and tents.  That tiny island holds over 9.5 million people. They cut 98 percent of their trees.  They flush 90 percent of their waste into the ocean. Within several decades, they expect to add another 3.0 million to their already overpopulated island.
What can’t they or we see as Haiti parallels the infamous people of “Easter Island” that overpopulated themselves into extinction?  What don’t we understand what’s happening to India, China, Mexico, America and Bangladesh?
Dr. Jack Alpert tells us the sobering details.  He can be found at www.skil.org . Ph.D. Education, Stanford University, 1982;
  MS Engineering, University of Wisconsin, 1975;  BS Mechanical Engineering, University of Wisconsin, 1968.
“Of course there is no short answer to the question "Why normal people don't understand the overpopulation predicament and respond to it?" said Alpert.  “Most normal drivers, in a car racing toward a post, change course. The two predicaments have much in common. 
“This discussion group is Jay's sad box. (Jay writers on overpopulation) His guests should not poop in it. But I am not sure, at least from my research, that we fully know how the human brain computes behaviors or changes the algorithms by which it computes them. 
“I don't think Jay has implied that there is NO view of reality that would move people from one behavior to another. He has only documented that historically it hasn't happened. Or if an instance happened, the view never over-powered the people that did not hold it.  He reported that there is no residue of that view's appearance in any civilization's artifacts. And he cited research that shows how minds that have not been rewired (debugged) consistently make errors in judgment. But all this truth does not infer that "no one ever made" or that "it is impossible to make" better cognitive connections. This work is not proof that no one could ever present the human predicament in a powerful enough way to allow an individual to understand it and with other converts produce a human experiment course change. 
“Haiti may be a poster child for the human experiment going bad. Maybe that makes it the potential poster child for what can happen. 
“Haiti appears to be a community that does not have a way out of its present course to oblivion other than depopulation. (rapid population decline-Rapid Population Decline- through extremely low birthrates.) 
“That Haitians, immersed in the trouble don't see this truth, and that Haiti watchers don't see this truth, and that Haiti helpers don't see they are really not reducing suffering by their actions, all fall into Jay's description that people are not wired up to see the reality that exists. But that by itself does not mean that there is no way for some of the Haitians to make a transformation to being able to see the predicament, identify the behaviors that would unwind it, and get themselves and others to take it, even if it is the bitter pill of RPD. The path is hard, without precedent, but not impossible.
“Consider this experiment. Assume that a very rich person bought daily time on all radio and TV stations, they bought signage on all cabs, busses and billboards. And on these media the got Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Bob Marley's equivalent, and a dozen other attention getters to all chant the same story: 
            Haiti's terrible conditions will get worse as energy costs rise. 
            Haiti will reproduce the civilization crash that happened on Easter Island.
            This crash is not a "maybe" in 100 years into the future but an almost "certainty" in the  
             next 10-20 years. 
            The outside world will not help the people of Haiti in their problems. 
            In fact, as the other 7 billion people gobble up the earth's shrinking resource base for
            themselves, they could even purchase the island's small production leaving nothing for
            the poor locals. 
            The only way to not have injured children is to not have them. 
            If this is truth, it becomes appropriate for the majority to impose an RPD program on
            themselves and the objecting minority to avoid this hardship.
“The questions that remain are. "Is there any program that can convey this example message to the people of Haiti? Can they be made adequately fearful of the future to change course, in the same context as the post ahead of the car driver, compels him or her to change course? Can RPD be made to appear as the only reasonable action? Can a majority implement it?
“It follows, that, If there is potential for an RPD program for the island of Haiti whose problems are most apparent,  then there is a potential for an RPD program on the island earth.”
Alpert speaks not only to Haiti’s predicament, but to America’s, Canada’s, Mexico’s, China’s, Bangladesh’s, India’s and most other overpopulated countries.  While, many cannot ‘see’ what happening, and, in fact, deny it—the population equation via ‘exponential growth’ cannot be sustained on a finite planet.  Dr. Albert Bartlett vividly shows it at his website www.albartlett.org
William Ryerson shows it at www.populationmedia.org ; also Dave Paxson at www.worldpopulationbalance.org and www.NumbersUSA.org
We cannot continue operating in the 21th century with a 20th century mindset guaranteed to collapse not only Haiti into another Easter Island, but the United States and all other overpopulated countries facing Peak Oil, Peak Water and Peak Resources.
“Imagine a country which employs the principles of personal responsibility,  freedom and accountability for future generations. Everything you do-counts!  If you do nothing, that counts likewise. When you read sobering information, do you want to give up or fall apart? Or, do you want to engage like Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, George and Martha Washington, John and Abigail Adams,  Lincoln, Susan B. Anthony, Dr. Martin Luther King, Oprah, Barbara Jordan, John Muir and other Americans. You represent the Jefferson’s, Oprah’s and Dr. King’s of the 21st century.  Consider it your honor and privilege to become a part of the solutions.  Engage the present to change the future! Become an agent of the change you wish to see.”  FW
In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum balls”, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG, graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation.  Take five minutes to see for yourself:
If any of us, no matter what our race, creed or color might be, refuse to engage our U.S. Congress as we have not for 30 years as to the population/immigration equation-our children will find themselves living in a terribly degraded America where the American Dream will be described by the history books as a 'fleeting fantasy' from the era of 1950 to 2010.
These are several of the top organizations where you can take collective action to change the course of American history as well as in Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. Take collective action at:

 By the way, Pinocchio’s nose has over-extended to considerable length for too much lying in this Article. This pissed off author is still in the pit of rage against the exponential increase of population everywhere, and also his anger is directed to many observers that exposed his fantasy to save the world from overcrowding. Disconnecting dots and escape from reality are getting worse. Lying is more frequent, and becoming more juvenile. For instance, the "infamous people of Easter Island …overpopulated themselves to extinction..." This is an atrocious lie.

First, it is not true that the people of the Polynesian Island of Papa Nui are "infamous". The truth is, they were famous because of their cultural heritage. Second, their statues called Moai in Ahu Tongariki were world famous, and third, the island is well-known as the bellybutton of the world.

There is no population extinction in Papa Nui due to population explosion !#*!!!.

Here see for yourself …http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Island.

The author who hates America is hiding his rage behind immigration and overpopulation mania as his scapegoat. He attributes the cause of any event of destructions and misery to this punching bag. The people of Papa Nui whom he disgraced, are still there. He shouldn’t invent a story that maligned them, especially when his delusional mind fantasized that those inhabitants "overpopulated themselves to extinction", which is too far removed from reality.

To this panicking writer, any tragedy is immigration-overpopulation caused. The Salvadorian plane crash on top of the snow-covered Himalayas forced the survivors to eat the bodies of their dead co-passengers and stayed alive for more than two months until their dramatic rescue seen by millions all over the world through television footages. Cannibalism did not happen in this forsaken part of the world because there was an immigration and overpopulation problem there.

Knock, knock, Frosty. FP.com will not run out of space even if your crappy articles overcrowd the front page. FP.com will not close because you overcrowd the pages. Perhaps it will disappear only if the CIA raid all websites in the Internet and round up all publishers and throw them to jail, including Ernie. But until then, your overcrowding bug doesn’t work, and won’t do you any good. The possibility of this crap happening today or tomorrow is like the possibility of planet Earth getting overcrowded in 290 millions years, if you start counting time starting today! Knock, knock! Wake up!

Yeah ..! I tell you, you've got to kill them to reduce their number -- those exponentially multiplying population of rodents, roaches and humans that pretty soon will be overcrowding available space on this planet ... eat up the food we could produce from land and sea, and consume all our renewable solar energy when the sun would soon stop to shine, use all our electricity when the wind stops to blow, when plants cease to grow, and the rain would stop falling from the sky, our lakes, rivers and the likes of Niagara Falls would run dry. While waiting for all these to happen, would you please call an ambulance for this author?

Tall, tall story-telling!

Benny, my right side neighbor was scared of overpopulation in his backyard the other day where he held a dinner-dance party for the sixtenth birthday of their grandson. There was an immigration invasion from the neighborhood, he complained. He said it reminded him of illegal aliens that jumped the border fence into his not too wide yard and overcrowded all the space available. Not only that, those illegal immigrant gate-crushers that invaded his backyard ate almost all the food on the table, and consumed all the bottled drinking water after they emptied all the soda and beer cans and got really drunk! Benny couldn’t decide whether he should call President Obama in Indonesia for help or 911.

But that was no worse than the frightening experience of Luis, my backside neighbor who lived in an old two-storey house. Their kitchen, sala and bedroom were invaded by swarm of ants and roaches that came out from nowhere when the rain came. Luis and his family had to evacuate and live in a nearby hotel for more than two days after they were expelled by the crawling invaders that showed up and overcrowded their residential abode and when the pest-control brigade sprayed poison all over the house.

The overcrowding pests lay dead on the floor. They were not all dead because they hatched their eggs and multiply faster than China’s new bullet train, the pest-killers warned Luis but my distraught neighbor was assured that the invaders’ rapid exponential increase since the rain came, was controlled, until the poison wears out. Luis almost cried when he asked me to help him find a buyer of his house even when at this time the real estate market is at rock bottom.

I think this kind of extermination control – to reduce the population of rodents, pests, or humans – is what is in the mind of this author when he complains about immigration invasion and overpopulation in Haiti, India, China, Mexico, America and Bangladesh [read his nightmare above]. He is a little bit weird but he speaks the truth about what’s happening in our neighborhood..!
