The UN is concerned because for the first time in history, by 2050 there will be more senior citizens over 60 years of age than 15 year old children.
The Global AgeWatch Index (GAWI), created by HelpAge International (HAI) and the UN Population Fund (UNPF) to oversee issues concerning the impact of aging on the global community.
Funding and information was provided for thus report from the UN International Day of Older Persons (UNIDOP), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank (WB).
John Beard, director of Ageing and Life Course at WHO said: “Unless you measure something, it doesn’t really exist in the minds of decision-makers. One of the challenges for population aging is that we don’t even collect the data, let alone start to analyze it. … For example, we’ve been talking about how people are living longer, but I can’t tell you people are living longer and sicker, or longer in good health.”
The study was derived by considerations of:
• Age-friendly environment within country
Contradictions within the study state that humans are living longer thanks to medical advancements; then turns toward perceiving the elderly as a possible burden on the system with rising healthcare costs and use of global resources.
In a new report entitled “Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds”, the National Intelligence Council (NIC) says that among other factors, there are 7 main issues are driving change and accelerating the “tectonic shifts” that are happening across the globe:
• Growth of the middle class
• Access to new technology
• Shifting economic power
• Aging populations
• Demand for basic resources – food and water
• Energy dependence
Resource management is a new concept beyond conservation ideals of the past.
It is the mindset being spurred into the social meme to decrease the psychological pressure of the reality we face as access to food, water and energy is incrementally being taken from the general population.
Burrows states: “You have a huge problem on the resource side. How do you manage all this prosperity that is putting a lot of strain on the resources? You have to have collaboration on the technology, you have to have a big energy or water project the world is really geared up for, because otherwise it turns into a bad scenario.”
In 2012, a report was released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), stating that 2011 had the lowest birth rates on record.
Across the board, infiltrating all races in the US, fewer children are being born. Since 2007, 4.3 million Americans have had fewer babies; either due to the economy or social credo.
At the most recent UN Earth Summit Rio+20, the UN Environmental Program (UNEP) published a paper that called for a global implementation of depopulation policies.
According to the paper: “The population issue should be urgently addressed by education and empowerment of women, including in the work-force and in rights, ownership and inheritance; health care of children and the elderly; and making modern contraception accessible to all.”
Authors of the report stated that they want “funding (for worldwide fertility control) decreased by 30% between 1995 and 2008, not least as a result of legislative pressure from the religious right in the USA and elsewhere”, the authors call for “education and planning needed to foster and achieve a sustainable human population and lifestyles.”
Population stabilization, the true meaning behind family planning is evident in the WB and UNPF push against sovereign nations to reduce their populations by rule of the “global consensus” which dictates human rights policy by deeming some fit to live and others not.
Based on the Rockefeller Commission report, population stabilization is an endeavor worth pursuing, although its success would take decades because of the high incidents of reproduction by marriage. However, with the destruction of the family, this problem could be solved. Furthermore, the stabilization of the global population would reallocate resources to be better spent in terms of quality versus quantity.
Concluding that the best way to achieve population stabilization is to coerce the nation’s citizens that they freely choose abortion and not having a child at all as part of an acceptable societal norm. By way of implementation of social barrier and cultural pressures, the average citizen would rather go with the flow and chose not to procreate for the sake of being part of the herd.
Simultaneously, by reforming the acceptable amount of children born into a married household, the impact of population growth would seem to be natural. And trends would take care of social conformity. Those who had more children would be shunned.
Increasing access to abortion clinics with the inception and popularity of Planned Parenthood would give unacceptable pregnancies a viable solution. This would distract and control another Baby Boom from occurring.
Using images on television, film and print media control the ideals of the modern family to fit the model of a population stabilized by no longer being plagued with “run-a-way” births; but focusing on the example of small-families as the best way to go.
