But the masses keep on multiplying. No matter how you managed the food distribution, there will always be an increasing number of people needing a share of the pie. I understand where you are coming from. But in the UK we brought in the Clean Air Act to clear up after the Industrial Revolution. We have virtually banned coal burning for any reason. There is even a move to ban wood burning stoves. We switched the whole country over to natural gas away from town gas. Our Diesel cars are being taxed so high that those on low incomes are being penalised. Many Euro countries are banning new Petrol/Diesel cars in the near future. But non of this will matter if the population keeps on growing. The Planet is finite. ..There are plenty of resources to support the current population but most of those resources are used and controlled by a very few on the planet.. I would disagree. The masses use far more than the wealthy. There are far more of them.
