Is there really too many people on the planet?

All our life, we have been blitzed with the warning that there are too many people living on our planet.

At the same time, we have been guilted into thinking that throwing out food is a bad thing – because there are people starving in Africa, etc.

Let’s put our critical thinking cap on, shall we?

When we run the math and assign a sizeable area of land to every family of 4 on the planet, something interesting happens:

This 66-foot by 66-foot plot of land (enough for a townhome and play yard) could house the entire 7 billion people in the state of Texas… and the rest of the earth would be empty.

This short video sums the population myth up nice and tidy:

The punchline is there is P L E N T Y of space for humanity…

And the same is true for food.

According to Thomas Malthus in 1798, we were supposed to run out of food in the year 1890. Of course, this prediction failed.

My guess is to make room for the robotic society. After all, paying Universal Basic Income is expensive. Conspiracy theorists will scream that depopulation is taking place secretly… in plain sight.

Coach Red Pill offers his thoughts on how to prepare for our prime years in this must-watch video:

Here is the problem with selling out

Professional vlogger Casey Neistat gets a regular mention on this blog.

He deserves it. He lives an AMAZING life. And I like sharing that with you.

I dig his entrepreneurial spirit… his upbeat, positive life attitude – even the way he bounces back from failure.

As a result, he became an “overnight” success on YouTube (after failing for decades).


With that success comes the haters. And lately, they have been hating on him a lot.

How to spot a liar

Spotting a liar is not about a game of “gotcha”…

Instead, it is a scientific method to seek truth.

None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day.

But now, there is something we can do about it…

In this Ted Talk, author Pamela Meyer reveals how to spot a liar via their body language:
