"You think, when you're out of school you're free, sonny? Oh, hell no! Then work life calls for you - and work life is only a continuation of what's been happening in school, only worse and even more strict. What you already were there, you gonna be also in your job life. If you were a loser, a slacker or a victim of your school mates' coping methods for boredom already there, then you gonna be the same among your colleagues. A really, really small cog in the clockwork...
The only way you'll not be forced to deal with this is when you happened to be born to an incredibly wealthy family or if you managed to become rich on your own before the day you leave school. Which is like zero probability.
So, don't even try to think you're a bigwig that gets his way."
matrixmann: (Thinking)
(Attention: This is highly speculative content and shouldn't be taken with scientific correctness!
Further down, it also shouldn't be taken as hatespeech or as a base to reason artificial interferences to execute population policy.
At first, it's just thoughts considering and philosophizing about a subject and it's meant as nothing more than that.)




World population grows every year, mainly in Africa and Asia.
Although in those areas, at least Africa the most, the common health care accessible to the normal people is far away from being satisfying. Still a lot of people die in their child years.
But even though, of those who are born, still a higher number manages to survive to make the population grow.
Is that so?
Population growth in Europe and other areas in the world counted as "developed" these days, it happened the most as technological and scientific progress appeared. As the influence of the Christian churches slowly declined, compared to the Middle Ages.
The increase in what health care could provide from the scientific viewpoint, and even the more as the distribution to the normal populace with low and average income for the time episode started to take place (for the sake of taking the soil away from social democrats and early communists), this is what is considered as the main reason for the explosive population growth that appeared between the 19th and the 20th century.
In Asia, this is partly the case, if you take a look at China which keeps increasing its capacities for provision constantly. But compare it to India. India is rich in population, but still the caste system is intact and richness and the deepest poverty both exist in this country without ever seeing light at the end of the tunnel to ever change. The normal population can't have that access to proper health care, otherwise it couldn't be one of the main research countries for medication tests on humans.
So, how would this rule apply there? Health care increasing the chances of survival of the individual, while people still tend to have families with many children born because of social reasons?
Is the population in the "developing" countries really the problem, if distribution of health care to everyone, as a base for survival of the masses of people born, is no topic in those despite economy experiencing growth all the time?

Taking a look at Europe and the already "developed" areas.
Population numbers in those areas have never been higher than today. Today is the max for these ever in history.
If those wouldn't live from getting people from other areas of the world moving into their territory, population numbers would already be in a noticeable decline. (Except for US because reproductive rights are under constant threat of clerical conservatives of being abandoned or killed by lack of funding, and people from the lower classes, who bear the most children there, depend on social programs to provide this to them, as proper distribution of health care to people from all states of wealth doesn't exist there.)
In the developed nations, about 95% of the population born survives into old age. Predators in the 5%-quota are diseases, malformations, accidents, pollution, man-made violence and psychic diseases caused by circumstances habored in this way of civilization.
So, population numbers in those areas remain constant with a slight decline in the long term. They get actively tried to be kept on the max. Be it home-bred population or through immigration.
And this through all the times.
So... basically, where does the point of attention lie really when it comes down to population policy?
In the developing countries, where still the least of the humans born survives until they're adults, and they die in a young age because of diseases damaging their health, or in those areas where nearly every person born survives until approximately 60 at least? And the number of people achieving this is being kept relatively constant at all times?
It may be worth picking up this hard constrast "95% survival" vs. "high mortality" for a closer look.
While the times of boom economic growth are over in the developed world, everything's build up that needed to be build up, now it only suffers from wrong proportion of the distribution, population decline in harsher numbers would be the logical consequence - as, in the phase of building something up, it needs more resources than when only maintaining and keeping up the state of things as they are currently. Also, there is not a need for "more" resources to be used as ante in the process.
Not even to speak of when the next stage of the technoligical age becomes reality and some more machines replace the human labor in the productive sectors, which makes the part of the population being employed in that sector become out of work and for sure also a part of them "obsolete" in the terms of the employment market.
So to say, the high population numbers of the developed world, in the long term, progress into a state of all of its population that it habors isn't "needed" anymore. It's like only in a position of consuming and sucking up resources, in a position of being a "consumer". Unable to give back or be of relevance to the integrity of the system. Others would call it drastically "trash", that's what they are then. - "Trash" that would need to be administered until its death and not be renewed / replaced by another person, to be exact.
So... when an area tries to keep its population number up in a state like before the big industrial boom at the beginning of the 20th century that it actually doesn't need anymore, it raises the question towards "How healthy for the planet is this strategy?"? How good in population policy worldwide is this actually?
And how much does it distort the numbers?
How much is it a factor that's part of the overall problem?
How much does that overclocked number cause in damage because a part of the population already exists in needlessness, but still they consume resources like all other people who are needed by the system to function?
To state something very clearly: The people who this applies to, they aren't to blame for what they are. If they have worked through a respective way of education and even performing an occupation for an amount of time throughout their lives, then there's no talking about "self-caused circumstances". Those people aren't obsolete because they haven't had ambitions and therefore were lazy and spoiled since a very young age. They've become obsolete because the system they live in doesn't need them anymore. In a certain span of time they were needed indeed, but now no more. - In difference to people who didn't even try for a decent school education and stayed away from it to hang out with friends, drink beer and destroy window glasses.
Therefore, because they're not to blame, they should at no point of the story be treated like if they were.
The solution for these should just be, plain and simple, to not to replace them in the next generation. Their life remains untouched, but as there is no need to have another person regrow into that position, there better shouldn't exist one to respawn.

When these obsolete numbers are being kept and maintained constantly, how much does it distort the real needs and the real functionality of the system that humans build for themselves to live in?
How much is it also responsible for overpopulation - for population that is there, but without a need of human civilization for them to exist?
What happens - how do the numbers look if that population doesn't exist anymore? In the developed world, as well as when Africa, Asia, South America only has the population number that it needs (considered, the economy of the "developing" areas also makes it to a state of things comparable to the so-called "industrialized nations" measured by what their environment allows)?
What if there are not that many people around anymore whose only purpose is to be there as a consumer because there is no task for them in this world?
And, what would happen to the yearly growth numbers if socially the issues of "children as security that supplies you in bad times / old age" would be adequately solved, in combination with that?
What would happen if mankind only grows or stays the same in such masses that it also has tasks for in its differing societies?

At least upon further thought it doesn't seem like the developed world is totally not to blame for the problem of the overpopulation. They try to keep up a number within their territories that's unrealistically high compared to the possible employment rate that it's able to supply when everything is run under fair circumstances (opposed to the current strategy of part-time work and letting the developing countries produce their food and their consumer goods).
When 95% of all humans survive until old age, you don't need people to have 2 and 3 children or more anymore. Better you should be happy if some people can't or don't want to have children because of certain reasons. Because that's getting closer to a realistic number, not even to speak of the children who would suffer for their whole lives as adults if there is no purpose in society for them.
And not even getting started to speak of the impact on the environment if there's one big resources-consumer less in the world...

It would be a drastic restructuring of society as it was to adapt to these circumstances with less people exsting again. But that process would be inevitable, as human civilization always finds a way of making work and production more effective than before, and by the time, this comes at the cost of human labor. No matter which economical system or system of world views it has in a century.
It is like one and only constant thread that keeps unfolding in history.

If not for those processes in mankind, which one can regard from one or another thousand positions, just think about the extinction of animal species: Animals vanished, as humans claimed the living space and bred like rabbits. Where humans live, animals have to go as humans want to live alone or even need the space for themselves.
One doesn't need to wonder about that process, as the earth has only a limited amount of living space.

Environment topics - overpopulation - vanishing of animal species - economy - social problems - all these topics are interconnected with each other. Each brick - another little factor in the other issue.
And when humans want to live up to the high goals they set for themselves in their enthusiasm, then they need to show a willingness to do something for this and to also adapt their societies to the links of the circumstances that are right in front of them.
There is no washing without getting wet. And no-one said it would be comfortable. Who thinks it would be, he lives in the world of a little child... Fairytales and unicorns.

The country all look up to: Health insurance and still you've got to pay yourself for your doctors, DocMobil to travel the rural lands like Doctors Without Borders in crisis areas, millions dependent on food stamps, family structures like in third world countries - get many kids to rise the probability that one will be able to care for you when you grow old or sick; don't break with wealthy relatives of yours as they can offer you financial help or a roof above your head -, and working your ass off 'til old age 'til you die 'cause pension doesn't exist, no matter the state of your health.
This is the country that people worldwide crave to live in, citing its huge freedoms and doing whatever you want what you can't do in your home country. This is the country that people brag they can find their fortune in and unbelievable riches, like it's still the 18th or 19th century.

Beer and booze

A drip in life,
what's there more than to die?

Now set this on fire,
burn it and feel the spiky wire,
grind it and put it deep,

Bring your warnings and I am that guy,
what?! A knife?!
I fucking wanted a last line!

I know I'll land in hell,
but don't you think it doesn't fit me well?
Nothing in life, nothing to strive
Let's make a party with blood and spine!

Whenever you keep seeing those big presentations and advertising of soccer events, you get the impression like the vision of a lot of dystopic SciFi authors or movie makers has come true: Shiny and glittering shows for the masses. Superstars to cheer at, heroes to believe in - and in the end, they're all created by some moguls that are kings of the mass media. For the purpose: To direct the view of the common people, to distract them or to get their looks to pay attention to the mass event presented which is not very much different from letting gladiators fight over their lives. They shall yell for their lives, think about nothing else except for that it's been a nice relief from everyday hard work or how they can become gladiators themselves, which they get shown in a way to perceive they're all paid with millions and a carefree life, everything to want and everything to look up at. And, what are they behind the curtains? Not the smartest, not the most moral, not the most honest - just a bunch of tragic figures which fulfill their task, but they're destined to realize only once they become too old to go on with that. Then the nature of their physical plague until that moment becomes obvious even to them.
But until then, new gladiators are found to take their places. And the masses go on yelling... Like, one or the other name, it doesn't matter. It's just some soccer players running for the amusement of some common people. Which somebody intended it for that it shall be this way.

Ihr beschwert euch, dass es nur noch um Emotionen geht und nicht mehr um faktische Wahrheiten? Ihr beklagt es, dass die Leute manipulierbar sind wie eine Viehherde und jedem Rattenfänger hinterherlaufen?
Werfe man die Frage mal auf euch zurück. Was macht ihr? "Symbolpolitik", "Leuchtturmprojekte", "Prestigeobjekte", "Spatenstiche", "große öffentliche Gedenkgottesdienste" - mit anderen Worten: Taten sind etwas anderes. Alles wird in die Ferne Zukunft geschoben. Möge sich bitte mein Nachfolger dieser Sache annehmen. Kopf in den Sand stecken und warten, bis dass sich die Sache von allein löst. Große Sprüche klopfen und mahnen vor Dingen, vor denen es nicht mehr zu mahnen gilt, weil diese schon längst Realität sind! Verurteilen von Dingen, bei denen man sich mit den Worthülsen den Arsch wischen kann, weil es stattdessen Handlungen braucht.
Eure Taten sprechen eine andere Sprache als die heiße Luft, die ihr täglich von euch gebt.
Nichts ist unter Kontrolle. Nichts habt ihr unter Kontrolle!
Die ganze Sache steigt euch langsam aufs Dach und ihr seid ratlos, was ihr dagegen tun könnt!
Der richtige Tropfen und das Fass beginnt entgültig überzulaufen - das Chaos fängt an, über euch hineinzubrechen!
Aber statt sich wenigstens damit zu befassen, irgendeine Form von Lösung zu finden, als alle einzusperren, zu erschießen oder ihre Existenzen zu vernichten - das Problem weiterhin unter den Teppich zu kehren -, tanzt ihr weiterhin auf der Bühne herum wie eine Marionette, die seinen Puppenspieler verloren hat. Planlos, ziellos, nichts wie weg von der Bühne! Das Stück improvisieren, sodass man es noch als "Vorstellung" vor dem Publikum verkaufen kann, damit sie einen nicht von der Bühne buhen und mit Tomaten bewerfen, merken, dass etwas nicht stimmt - das versucht ihr noch zu bewerkstelligen, weil euch keine andere Wahl bleibt, um noch möglichst unbeschadet aus der Situation herauszukommen, und genau darin seid ihr so mies wie Marionetten ohne Spieler hinter den Kulissen es nur sein können. Weil Marionetten keine eigene Intelligenz haben!
Ihr glaubt, dass das keiner mitkriegt - aber weit gefehlt! Die Meisten haben nur keine Worte, um es auf den Punkt zu bringen. Und in ihrer Suche nach Worten laufen sie allen möglichen Scharlatanen über den Weg. Gröhlen alle möglichen schrecklichen Parolen mit, die es nur gibt - die schon vor Jahrzehnten falsch waren und die es heute immer noch sind!

Das ist euer Werk, liebe Marionetten! Das ist die Realität, die ihr euch geschaffen habt!
Abbau von Idealen, von Schulbildung, von Zielen, der Aufbau von "jeder ist sich selbst der Nächste" und "du darfst alles machen, was du willst - du darfst dich nur nicht erwischen lassen, oder musst reich sein, um dich freizukaufen!" - das ist alles euer Werk und das eurer "Freunde"! Eure "Freunde", die als Wolf im Schafspelz daherkommen - die keine Freunde sind, die euch nur süßen Honig ums Maul schmieren, eine schöne Position versprechen, und euch zum Ausverkauf von allem nötigen, das eure sichere Lebensbasis darstellt; dass ihr noch jeden Tag Brot aus dem Laden oder nicht schon ein Messer in den Rücken kriegt, wenn ihr nur vor die Tür geht, weil alle nur noch mit Messern in den Taschen herumrennen und andere Leute ausrauben, die erkennbar Geld und Verwertbares in den Taschen haben!
Eure guten "Freunde" wollen euch nichts gutes - sie brauchen euch nur als Mittel zum Zweck! Um ihre eigenen Ziele verfolgen zu können. Und ihre Ziele sind: Die Welt auszubluten, bis kein Tröpfen Saft mehr aus ihr herauskommt!
Ihnen liegt nichts ferner, als an euer Wohlergehen und eure körperliche Sicherheit zu denken, so lang ihr ihnen nicht von praktischem Nutzen seid!
Ihr, liebe Marionetten, werdet genauso zwischen dem keifenden und kämpfenden Pöbel enden, wenn sich 100 Leute um die letzten verbliebenen 3 Brote im Regal streiten! Ihr werdet genauso um euer Überleben streiten müssen, wenn eure "Freunde" von Oben plötzlich meinen, sie müssten das Weite suchen! Ihr seid und bleibt einer von denjenigen, die sich nicht verpissen können, wenn sie nicht reich genug sind und zu der richtigen, angesehenen Sippschaft gehören, die diese Personen in ihren Reihen noch dulden!
Wer ein Palast hat, braucht Vasallen - aber er braucht keinen Palast voller Vasallen!
Denkt ihr wirklich, ihr seid Teil der Auserlesenen, denen es vergönnt ist, unter der Gnade dieser Geldadligen als treuer Diener noch seinen Lebensabend verbringen zu können?
Die Plätze sind schon längst reserviert. Diskretion ist das Credo. Und wer sich bereits in Diskretion bewiesen hat, der behält den Job. Alles andere wäre fahrlässig und ein Sicherheitsrisiko.
Hat euch das jemand schon mal so gesagt?
Die richtig Reichen und Einflussvollen denken in Strategie, sonst wären sie nicht so reich und sie würden es auch nicht bleiben. Sagt bloß, das habt ihr zwischen all eurem Verkehren, Abendessen, Gipfeltreffen und Galas nicht gemerkt?! Dann seid ihr noch dümmer als die dümmsten Marionetten - und diese werden auch nur an Strängen gezogen oder haben eine Hand im Arsch zu stecken!

"Wunderbar"! - Mit 180 und brüllendem Motor auf vollem Kollisionskurs gegen die Wand! Das ist, wovon jeder, der euch wählt, schon immer geträumt hat! Ein Spaß "für die ganze Familie"!

"Your unconditional basic income is a nice idea, but here's the flaw in your system: It reestablishes how the old social benefits worked, but it doesn't change anything on the factor "prices". As well as that it doesn't change those facts that still each year it's the goal of all national economies to impress each other by proving how much percentage they can compile in attaching zeroes to the sums of the last year ( = GDP) and that the economy it ought to function in only can keep itself up by generating lots of fictional money that doesn't exist out of credits it didn't hand out to one customer, so it's whole self-asserted "growth" is nothing more than multiplying the sums that have originally been there before a few hundred, a few thousand years ago. In other terms: Not only you keep adjusting the sum each year, you also don't change anything that makes it so nessecary that this basic income needs to exist at all. You only make the circumstances takeable again. But that because you don't really know what you're trying to fight when you talk about "overcoming capitalism".
You're still one of those dreamy starry-eyed idealists that don't know how the world they live in really works."

Perhaps a correction to this: https://matrixmann.dreamwidth.org/82348.html

These days' race still is like the old game the plebs against the upper class. The poor against the nobles.
The nobles always try to keep the pace with those from the lower class as this is the only thing that ensures them their privileges. And - they even dare to try to control the pace.
It's always the run who's the first. Whose way of life is gonna win and dominate the way of life the rest is going to live.
For these days, the nobles managed to apply all kinds of tricks and ways to lead the people from the lower class astray from the path that would lead them to be the first in that race.
First, one change over the centuries that happened is that everyone can be a noble, be one of their class. The nobles may not find it very pleasant, but it serves the purpose at least.
Through that, lots of people from the lower class get urged to make their efforts to move up to the upper class, so they are not busy with questioning at all why both classes got the wealth that they got.
And, secondary, so they become vulnerable to the dream of moving up the ladder.
The nobles don't want them within their ranks truly, but through the thought of maybe getting somewhere else, they become ready and willing to do a lot of things for the nobles in order to get a piece of the cake they can call their own from then. They become what you call "corrupted".
And so they keep delivering whatever the nobles want. Betraying their own class, living in the illusion in becoming part of something you were never meant to become part of, and they poison the thoughts of the next generation coming that wanted to do it better - seeing how much the previous one sold out their souls to the nobles' desires.
In fact they are... part of what tries to prevent that some others than the nobles are able to ever win the race.
Things remain as they are. The race remains at the same point before it started.

"Freedom" and "free travel" are just gifts to the young generation which don't know a world before this was visibly in effect, but they're just breadcrumbs to manipulate them, to get them in favor of that current system that reigns, to make them think if that is gone, they live in a dictatorship. Not even thirst, nor hunger, nor freezing, nor even finding any kind of clothes to keep you warm and protect you from bad weather should make them think they live in bad conditions, it should be that they can breathe no unfiltered air and that they can't spend money on whatever they want which they borrowed from banks anyway.
That way the system wants hold its position and even make sure that, if these young, spoiled and manipulated people that run aroud with twisted priorities in their heads don't get their will, they will become aggressive to take their will from anyone they perceive as standing in their way to get it. And that makes them vulnerable to extremist ideas to even kill people if only they get from the act what they wanted in the first place.

These days' youth gets the music it deserves. Uninspired, overly happy twenty-four seven, acting like the world's only a party, thinking there are no obstacles to come in the future - that's something only the rotten meat generation over thirty talks about -, and it's as lame to make you fall asleep - speed is an alien concept to it. While the musicians still manage to come up with a catchy tune, as much as that they're free from talent to deliver ambitious lyrics and an ordinary rhyme. So in the end, what they leave behind is an exceedingly kitschy tune with no message, nothing to dream about and nothing more of than what seems to be one of the negative kinds of ecstasy: The world is colored in rose, all is sunshine and happiness forever and for always, darkness is something that doesn't exist, not even in sound and it better shouldn't. Darkness is a cancer that should be erased ("it fucks up the good mood").

In that point, this youth gets the soundtrack that it deserves and where it's going to end at, one will see.

Es soll sie niemand mehr einen Fehltritt erlauben, sonst könnte es für ihn den Einstieg in den Ruin bedeuten. Für die Meisten bedeutet Führerscheinentzug zeitgleich auch den Verlust des Arbeitsplatzes - Verlust des Arbeitsplatzes durch mutwilliges Handeln, bringt einem kein Hartz IV ein; wenn man also nicht gerade jemanden kennt, der einen durchfüttert oder Geld leiht, oder der für einen mitarbeitet (was Partner in der Regel tun), bedeutet das herbe Einschnitte. Eine herbe Kettenreaktion.

The bus stop turns into the youth club...
First love, first drink, maybe even first time getting physical. And lots of friends.
What has modern society to offer to its youngsters?
Living in sterile, mold-contamined, pimped up flats, celebrating their weekends in used up buildings whose purpose they know at the highest from when they were kids, offered consumer goods which they can never pay, jobs that don't exist and promises that never come into effect. On top, bags of clothes manifactured in the third world which they can cut and rearrange to show how run-down they are, and ugly hair-cuts which make them appear like they have some sort of problems.
Education somewhat is an alien concept, both in the way of knowledge about the world and emotional development.
They get handed a lot of toys and tools to get paid the time their parents haven't spend with them, but can't make up for the deep nothing they perceive.
Sold out worlds, they long for destruction, for the destination that remains for when there's no task for you or your body is plagued by diseases. Diseases the parents thought about in their selfishness "they will be able to get along with that". And they keep wondering why these kids in their selfishness for exstasy beget another aimless generation of kids accidently...
On the other hand, education in the form of learning in excess for those who can pay for it. Planning of futures until the age of 40, orchestrated and without a doubt that anything can come in between this. No guess of what poverty means, what deprivations means, not even that it exists at all or what life-threatening circumstances could be. A bubble which nothing goes wrong within.
In the end, the planning also reveals its shallowness: Getting education, getting jobs, founding families, reproduce, buying houses, buying cars - running around and following the established role model, without a thought for a deeper meaning, just as trying to get drunk and loitering around in derelict houses and on the streets. It's about running away and clouding your mind.
The middle class youngsters ignore in their planning, that their kids are going to have to fight even harder for getting jobs as there is limitation in this, so it is also done in a manner of feeding your ego, numbing your mind to prevent to understand something.
Whereas the kids which grow up in poverty rather get their kids unvoluntarily and suddenly start to get those dreams of a idyllic world that isn't reachable for them. If they do not turn out in the end to abandon them, to show them the true face of what their existence already is: Superfluous.
