Question: How do we convince humanity to depopulate the planet to 10% of our present numbers without wholesale murder, war or suffering?
This is a very difficult and complex question to answer, as such a radical change would require fundamental changes in virtually every aspect of human life. One possibility might be to introduce a combination of strong incentives and punishments to heavily discourage ideally all fertility and population growth, such as a mix of tax incentives for having fewer children and hefty fines for larger families to help reduce the population incrementally over time. This could be complemented by strong public education efforts to help people understand the benefits of having a smaller population, as well as the environmental benefits of living a more sustainable lifestyle. Additionally, some governments might introduce measures that could help reduce population growth, such as offering comprehensive health care and education, and providing greater access to contraception and family planning services. Finally, legal changes could be implemented that would allow for greater cross-border migration, the sharing of resources, and a more equitable distribution of resources so that everyone has access to a good quality of life regardless of their country of origin.
