My Modest Proposal
By Marquise Burns
Now there have been other ideas but when you really think about it they seem pretty ridiculous and inhumane. For example, there have been claims that by making it a law for couples to only be able to have two children in their lifetime it would cut down on the number of people in the country. What do I have to say to this? Look at china they have this rule implemented but do they not have one of the largest populations in the world? Another idea that has been thrown around would be to implement a birth control policy that will prevent people from having children until a certain age in which by the time the next generation would get older the older generations would be gone. This solution would be horrible because we wouldn't be able to use those bodies for anything since they would be too old and wrinkly to eat or use for fuel. The last idea that I have heard was to start adopting kids instead of having kids. The number of kids that are currently homeless around the world would currently be around 100,000,000+ kids. If everyone adopted at least one kid it would give the world a little time; this plan could work but the money would come from the rich and i don't plan on giving up any of my luxuries.
