Overpopulation a reality that is too taboo to discuss?

Simplfied graph of the growth of the population

Overpopulation is a question which is another taboo topic that is in reality a basic key to many of today's problems and a solution to equally as many of them. If it was address objectively without the usual knee jerk reactions which is the norm , or the egocentric motives of many such as the elites. We could get to solutions to many of our problems much faster. Let's have a look at this topic than

The Depopulation bogeymen..

This topic has it's fair share of bogeymen and yes they are sinister and sure the motives of these bogeymen aren't in the interest of  our world but for the individuals themselves. To begin we have the ultra rich agenda for depopulation by the likes of Rockefeller and their likes which serves merely an egocentric agenda of more space for their own group. They don't care for the planet or for the resource waste or any other more objective reasons. They are not even an elite in the words true meaning and they are not worthy of  saving so their motives are purely egocentric. Their motives are counterproductive and will most definitely create a knee jerk reaction that with infuriate people. So wrong people addressing this topic.

The other of the depopulation bogeymen are the eugenicists. For these people a pro white agenda is at it's core and often masked under the quality before quantity packaging, but in reality it's all about white upper class and middle class people before their perceive threat the coloured races. This also is a limited perception of reality and in the long run will equally infuriate the public and make this all a question of elitism and xenophobia. Quality of  people exist in all races and whites are not something extraordinary here. An more equal quality before quantity argument would be more beneficial in the long run. 

The population idealists are another bogeymen category which has another spin on things but equally devastating to the discourse. These people have a techno-optimistic. semi Utopian view of the future where ever growing populations will be handled by ever progressing technology and with the heightening living standards population growth will even out. Well ever higher living standards are the same as higher resource use. More people using western levels of resource use will destroy the planet even faster. Not a realistic option in other words.

Why depopulation and where and how?

We in the west have a resource use equal to that of 100 developing country brethren. We in the west have built up our societies with the aid of cheap abundant oil. Today 1 calorie of food has taken 7 - 10 calories oil to create. With peak oil a reality in our age of time, this lifestyle will not be an sustainable alternative in the future. We are basically consuming ourselves out of a planet. No one can dispute this fact. Depopulation beginning with the most resource intensive populations of the west are most effective. I'm not saying lets stop having children whole sale,  but a one child policy the same as China had could be a beginning. The thing is that this population growth which we have had during the industrial era is an artificial creation due to the dual premises of higher living standard thanks to cheap abundant oil and the advances in modern medicine. The hockey stick graph on population growth is due to this reason. We need a decrease in population for ecological reasons basically so as to be able to continue to exist on this planet. 
Most of the problems today are due to greed from the elites and the overpopulation in the world.  This merchant world view where rabid materialism, endless economical growth and whole sale consumerism is the goal of life has is no future. It's doomed to fail.

The solution a future with smaller populations and other ways of living

With smaller populations there is less competition for resources and the general quality of life is heightened. I personally believe that a crash of this current system is needed before a more balanced and more viable future can arise. There is no need for mass populations. This is needed in mercantile societies where you need to sell wares as to gain riches or you need mass populations to fight your wars. We have progressed out of this and a new leaf in the history of man is being slowly but surely turned. To go into the quality before quantity argument. It's better to have a balanced ecologically sustained population which can truly live for filling lives and develop their potentials for a sounder spiritual goals than this simplistic vulgar materialistic quagmire of mass consumption and low level automation like existence which serves no purpose at all.  A new golden age will require a smaller more sustainable population. How we get there is a question in itself but if we don't we will have ever lowering level of existence for every coming generation. 
This is a question that every sane thinking person must address and not shun.
