    When first coming into contact with the idea of population reduction, I admit to being horrified. However, upon considering the numbers, especially the doubling time of the population, I’ve changed my mind. I think I have a few simple solutions that would get us started.

    First, stop saving suicidal people. Let them off themselves, in fact, any intervention should be focused on assisting them.

    Second, stop giving people drugs that keep them sane. Let the crazy out so that they can be identified, and then eliminated.

    Third, being rich because a family fortune was inherited shouldn’t qualify anyone for survival. Having money isn’t in itself a survival trait, and there are many examples of stupid in the world history of royalty thanks to so much inbreeding.

    Finally, give everyone knives. Doesn’t have to be knives, just pair people up and give them each the same weapons, not guns. In fact, the one percent should do this first to prove they have a right to survive. This reduces the population by half, exempting only children until they understand someone must die so they can live. May as well make it entertaining.
