Ask A Genius 197 – Overpopulation, Religion, Government (Part 1)
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
June 13, 2017
[Beginning of recorded material]
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Do these become systems of control of populations, and so individual people?
Rosner: The US doesn’t really have a national population policy, but China does.
Jacobsen: America does, sure. I think of the Abrahamic religions.
Rosner: I mean the government doesn’t get involved, well does say to have kids and we’ll give you tax deductions with allowance of dependents allow you to take deductions from your taxes. You pay less for having kids.
We will make it economically slightly easier to have kids. It is not as overt as China policy. Policies they have had since Communist China came into existence.
