Futurist Proposes Solving ‘Overpopulation’ with ‘Birth Credits’

According to Michael E. Arth (Earth?), the planet’s future looks grim because there are just too many people living on it.

In an interview with Vice, the urban designer, former Florida gubernatorial candidate and futurist proposed the concept of ‘birth credits‘ to help curb what he terms a “slow-moving, global disaster like overpopulation”:

“China, and the rest of the world, would be better served by a choice-based marketable birth license plan, or ‘birth credits,’ that could stop or reverse population growth on a dime… Each person would be issued half of a birth credit, which he or she can combine with a partner to have one child, or a person can sell his or her (half) credit at the going market rate. Each additional child costs one more credit. Noncompliance would bring a fine greater than the cost of the credit, and there would be sanctions for non-compliant countries (such as migration restrictions).”

The Wikipedia entry for birth credits (which we’re just guessing was actually written or edited by Arth due to the tone which seems to suggest what a brilliant idea birth credits are) explains the scheme in more detail:
“Birth credits would allow any woman to have as many children as she wants, as long as she buys a license for any children beyond an average allotment that would result in zero population growth. If that allotment was determined to be one child, for example, then the first child would be free, and the market would determine the cost of the license for each additional child. The incentive to society is the prevention of an overpopulation-related tragedy of the commons, including an immediate reduction in unwanted children… As with traffic laws, enforcement of birth credits could be through fines, tax levies, or loss of privileges.”

The Arth plan — which Wikipedia says would “serve more as a wake-up call to women who might otherwise produce children without seriously considering the long term consequences to themselves or society” — also assumes that rich people won’t buy extra birth credits because they already limit their families by choice. (Tell that to billionaire Ted Turner who has five children but advocates a one-child policy for the rest of the world to reduce the population down to two billion people.)

[...]

Interesting, considering the actual data shows that the majority of developing countries are already sitting at zero or negative population growth as it is. The only countries that are not in that category are developing African nations that happen to have some of the shortest life expectancies on the planet. Whereas people in developed nations live an average of 80 years, people in many of these African nations have an average lifespan that doesn’t even reach 50 years.

But Arth asserts that in the near future, people will live indefinitely, so we have to plan accordingly and start depopulating faster now. He does not seem to realize that the technocratic elite do not plan for such technology to ever be available to everybody. The plebs aren’t invited to that party.

Think about it. If these people are this worried about supposed overpopulation now, why in the world would they want to make everyone live forever?
