Among the serious issues of today’s world; from the culture war; to the ‘war’ of which no one here speaks; or the issues of multiculturalism; climate change and resource management, is another seperate, but important issue. Population
- If population becomes too high, should the state establish incentives to engineer its population proportion?
- Is it up to the state to govern how many children we have?
- What do we do about overpopulation in some nations (e.g. China), with underpopulation in others (Italy)?
- What impact does population change have on society (contemporary, and historical – [such as the baby-boomer phase of the 20thC])
- What are the ethics of procreation?  Is it morally wrong to have ‘too many children’? (I think Kant’s CI neatly comes to mind) Consider issues of liberty, the state, and wellbeing of the ecology and society as a whole
- What ecological impact does population have?
- What does ethical theory/political philosophy have to say about population, if anything?
- How much does our perception of sexuality impact upon population?
- Can we sustain populations? Should we put a ‘quota’?
- What do we do if we have underpopulation of women/men in equal proportion?
I shall not venture to answer. But I always believe that a good solution depends on a properly defined question. Good questions lead to intelligent answers.
