But this is about what if immediately after. Seriously how many farms do you think actually have full harnesses and plows and in good condition. Do you really believe every farm has a team of trained plow horses. Not all horses are plow horse or can be. How about harvesting. It would all be manually but so would planting since it's virtually ALL automated nowadays.

I only know this because I used to watch a show called Connections and it showed me what I had already suspected. If we were to lose power in the US in one day 2% might live if they were smart and prepared including supplies and a ton of ammo and weapons. Most people would be screwed since they all depend on the machine and the power to run it. They hinted at this in the 2nd "I believe" Matrix movie when the Counselor was talking to Neo about the machinery that ran the last city and how they didn't even know how it was made or worked anymore. Our country is like that now and many others also. They work and most people don't care or know how and if the power dies then so do they but they just don't realize it yet.

This is why it is crucial to lower the population so we can adapt to a better system that can change with need. One that we understand and know how it works and have our own renewable power source that is complex and connected but also independent in case of problems in the distribution.

We are dead in my lifetime if the oil runs out and we haven't fixed this and the many other problems. Oh yeah and half the problems we have in the world are overpopulation or excessive. Less people means less demand which means lower prices, more land, higher labor costs, less war, more food, more healthcare, more raw materials if we recycle, less kids so less schools and teachers so lower taxes "way lower", less war also means less war machine "lower taxes", more employment and less kids means "lower taxes" since there are no welfare bitches sitting around collecting a check or people on unemployment since there are not way to many people than we need.

Our population in the US because of Welfare "paying bitches to get pregnant" and Illegal immigration is over twice of what it naturally should be. Don't believe me then realize this. A lot of women on welfare have 6 kids a lot have 4 kids. How many would they have without it??? Zero or maybe one but not 6 and there are those that have 8 or more and they need to be shot in the face for stealing from us all and not giving a fuck.
They are a huge reason for the problems with this country and we need to FIX them, yes surgically and also change the law so if you are not 25 you can't get welfare so you better know an adoption agency or sell your body since we don't need to support your ass.

Yeah I went off on a rant but it felt right, lol.

For instance, when the hurricanes came through Florida, one after another a few years ago, there were a lot of people who didn't have power for weeks. Not saying that people didn't help anyone with their generators and what not, but there were a lot of people who had to resort to cooking their dinners over fires, and using candle light for lights in their houses. I know I did. The biggest problems were food and gas. Everyone was flipping their lids over it. I couldn't understand why so many people couldn't come together and help their fucking neighbors. Instead people were outside taking pictures of the the less fortunate people's houses who had trees through their living rooms, and then laughing cause it didn't happen to them. I just read books and hung out with my friends. We'd go out to the lake, or go fishing. I didn't have this problem with this change of regression. So many others did, the ones who rely on their precious technology. People who wanted to watch their TVs the ones, who shit bricks cause they couldn't go on their internet. I came to the conclusion that, shit, I'm still alive, and I'm going to do what it takes to maintain that.

I think everyone should have a test and if you fail, you die. A survival of the fittest kinda thing. There are so many people out there who are reproducing that shouldn't be. So many idiots proclaiming to be the next fucking Einstein.
There should be a brains test and a physical one. Our government, and our workers. No freeloaders.
They should "colonize" the moon, and just sent worthless people out into space without there being anything for them to actually go to. If they're dumb enough to believe that there's a better place on the fucking moon, then they should go there. Same with all those fucking religious fundamentalists. If you're belligerently outrageous enough to shove that shit down someone's throat, you should be thrown into space to be with your god.

Is there anyway to change the thread's name to "shit that's wrong with people as a whole"?

Now that has some real response potential for a thread but I don't steal so it's up to you to start it.

Colonization of the moon, Mars, or under the sea just doesn't seem realistically feasible in the anywhere-near-future. Humans just need to return to proper resource management, localized production, and more subsistence-esque agriculture (lessen the resources wasted on growing and transporting food around the world). If people fail to do so, there will almost surely be a major civilization collapse that will force such an adjustment.

Speaking of, the other day I was intrigued to see people farming on land perhaps just a few football fields in area in the middle of cities with skyscrapers and the like around them while taking a train from Hong Kong to Guangzhou. They were planting seeds and tilling the land by hand and everything. Very cool to see, what with not even being in the countryside.

I just wish they would leave the moon alone since it is responsible for all life continuing on this planet the way we know it. There is so much the moon controls including the tides that if something happened we would be so screwed as a species. I can see some terrorist group in a 100 years blowing up a moon fuel depot in protest and pushing the moon out of orbit or just as bad into a slower or faster orbit that messes with the life cycles "breeding, feeding ect" of many of the more fundamental life forms causing mass extinctions up and down the food chain.

So much could go wrong, we really need to leave the moon alone for the most part.
