I may be a sentimental realist, but I can't help seeing many reasons for thinking that to solve some of our problems it might be a good idea to start thinking about stabilizing the world's human population at a smaller number of billions than what we have today.

Several things seem to be necessary to stabilize or reduce population growth. One is economic sufficiency, so that parents do not count on children for support in old age.

The other is rights for women. I thought that concept was settled a few decades ago in industrialized countries, but it is now on the front burner, entangled in the current religious war.
