The problem is there are too many people, right? Shouldn't population control (though abortion, contraceptives, and government mandates) ease scarcity issues around the world? Not so, says Tesla CEO and billionaire Elon Musk.
In a recent series of warnings about the dwindling population rate, Musk predicts the major impact a significantly smaller incoming generation will have on the world as we know it. “The world's population is accelerating towards collapse, but few seem to notice or care,” Musk’s tweet said.
His tweet was in response to a recent New Scientist article titled "The world in 2076: The population bomb has imploded." The article projected a significant decline of global population over the next 60 years, due to half of the countries in the world having fertility rates below the replacement rate.
Musk made a similar warning in March on CNN, reports Life Site News: “We should be concerned about demographic implosion," he said. “So if you look at countries like Japan, most of Europe, China, and you look at the birth rates, in a lot of those places it is only at about half of the sustaining rate.”
“So it will sort of fall over,” Musk explained, “it will not stand. What we’ll actually have in those countries is a very high dependency ratio, where the number of people who are retired is very high relative to the number of who are net producers,” he said. “And so the social safety net will not hold.”
Musk is pointing out that what people have not realized is that in not having so many "dependents" right now to take care of, when each of us becomes "dependent," we won't have people to take care of us. While Musk was not speaking in a pro-life context, his message affirms God's plan stated in Genesis 1:28: "Then God blessed them and said, 'Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.'"
Musk added that the severity of the issue would not be seen until it may be too late: “The full gravity of this is not well understood, but will become a severe issue in the next few decades.” Musk's warning comes at a time when abortion giant Planned Parenthood is doing everything it can to sink its teeth into the next generation, including telling young children this new disturbing message.
