The Earth's Population: Numbers, Pensions and Cultural War

"The fantastic population explosion that the Earth is experiencing is uneven. The developed world is gradually experiencing a reduction in growth, leading to an actual decline in population. The result is that even as the West grows old, much of the world becomes more and more overpopulated. As a result the increase in the amount of retired people, and the decrease in workers paying into pensions schemes, all pensions schemes are already starting to collapse. Also, most industries rely on young adult immigrants as the local workforces are becoming increasingly scarce. Our economy and future depends on pulling increasingly greater numbers of workers from countries that are not yet entering the post-explosion era.

Developed countries must maintain strong armies to protect themselves from the rumblings of unrest in the overpopulated countries, and to protect such unstable countries from each other, and we must also keep a continual watch over the developing nations in order to aid them past the population-explosion stages in their history. To think that there is no problem or to ignore it is to invite the collapse of civilised Western society under a tide of economic collapses brought on by overpopulation and civil chaos. At the end of the day, if there is no solution to wars and overpopulation, may the most advanced countries survive!"

Back in the warmth!

Kabul is cold compared to Mazaar-e-Sherif, I'm glad to be back up here!

My laptop isn't online, I can only use a work PC... and we all share it, so I'm not online much. And, I can't really reply to emails in an organized or timely manner.

I've got some great photos, but they're all over a meg so I need to find some photo-editting software before I can upload them. Some of them will be for my work-safe friends list only if you can see any of my work kit/workmates in the photos. I have a digital camera now! Woo!

I'm on night shift tonight, monitoring the equipment all night.

I miss my normal life, but also I'm enjoying it out here... if only I had a decent laptop so I could get more stuff done! I think I might have to finally admit that I need a new one, even though the old one still (mostly) works!
