    How can the world's population be kept down at carrying capacity?

    Depsite that some may postulate that we need an overpopulated planet to afford inexpensive labor, let us presume that overpopulation is destabilizing the ecology of the biosphere and international economy. How then are we to keep populations at carrying capcity? (for example: approx.: 500 million to 2 billion human souls for a planet the size of Earth.)

    We could love people so much that we allow them to choose to die when they wish to.  And we could encourage wonderful close relationships to blossom, like with gay and lesbian people, thus forming strong bonds without producing additional children.  Then those couples who do want children will get support from same-sex couples and benefit society in general.
    Finally we need to become less greedy.  Accept that we should not hang on to life just for the sake of it.
