Population Problem

Filed under: politics, social — Tags: — Hailin @ 8:41 pm

One of the biggest problems in the U.S. is the rapid population growth.  U.S.  population has grown from 75 million in 1900 to over 300 million today, quadrupling it over the  past 100 years. By the same rate, by 2100, the population will reach 1.2 billion, and it will be a nightmare -there will be land crisis, food shortage, and water crisis, to name a few.

Sadly no political party or politician is willing to confront this issue, as the act of controlling  population growth is reminiscent of brutal one-child per family policy or Nazi’s eugenics practices.  Politicians needs votes from anti-abortion and immigration rights groups to get elected, thus they will gladly shun away from the real issue.

When God promised that he will surely multiply Abraham’s offspring as the stars of heaven and as the sand on the seashore, I bet there were little people on this planet.  Today the promise is a reality. So what can we do before the problem gets so worse that we can only rely on salvation itself?  Low birthrate and stop illegal immigration.  In my view, the recent 1.2 billion dollar great wall of America is worth every penny.

The following is an article I wrote back in 2006.

I recalled some fun moments when I met some famous people: former president George Bush, Bill Clinton, presidential candidate John McCain, Chinese premier Zhu Rongji, Chinese foreign minister Li Zhaoxing, and chancellor of University of Denver.

世上的人都想做名人,实在做不了名人的普通人,也想方设法想见见名人,因为这世界上毕竟名人少,普通人多.于是名人成了稀有商品,过圣诞节摆在商场的橱窗里,看一眼收一块钱,愿意付钱的普通人说不定也不少.
