THIS KIND OF THINGS WE MAY PLAN AND PROPOSE. BUT IT IS REALISM, THAT THEY ARE DIFFICULT TO GET REALIZED.
The large population does not in itself cause eg. environmental problems, but rather that people do not act optimally in the whole to avoid problems and solve them.
How to get unemployed, for example, to plant more forests, to cultivate food that would suffice for everyone. This is a team spirit problem of the people of the world, a problem of determination, a coordination and organizing problem.
If we could get a vote and signing of an agreement from most of the world’ s people that wars are forbidden, arms production is forbidden, arms industry and weapons are being converted for other kind of utilization. If you were to create a universal citizen movement over states, races, ideologies, religions, etc. agree to these matters, contract paper and signatures. Certainly, all ordinary citizens want peace and no violence, a clean and healthy environment, satisfying food, housing, health, safety, education, good relationships with other people, meaningfulness of life etc. Why do people still have to wage wars, is not it quite absurd. Now we cannot afford for wars, when natural disasters are also causing problems.
Ordinary citizens, civil society should be able to decide, not the leaders, power blocs that are biased in their own interests. Also, money and ownership should not have too much power, when it comes to avoiding and solving common problems for all people.
Now that there are internet connections, could there be a centralized place in internet for all citizens across the globe, to think about problems and their solutions, although not all people on earth have the opportunity even to that. From this problems solving portal, this kind for mankind positive and useful chain reaction could begin. When we first got plenty of people to do this, we could extend it to all people on earth. Funding is also needed, with bulk funding it could succeed.
Even though it seems hopeless, we can, however, be like a straw in a hive and do something good for ourselves and for each other.
