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

that overpopulated themselves into extinction?
What don’t we understand what’s happening to India, China, Mexico,
America and Bangladesh?

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
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.
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

the potential poster child for what can happen.
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.)
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.

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:
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.
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?

Haiti whose problems are most apparent, then there is a potential for an
RPD program on the island earth.”

in fact, deny it—the population equation via ‘exponential growth’ cannot be sustained
