Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500

~ Idea 295 ~ 1 May 1995

A World conference on Simple and Frugal Living should be convened by the United Nations in order to save the Earth's resources from over-consumption, non-replacement and depletion as a result of unnecessary human greed, monumental waste, marketing, advertisement, built-in obsolescence and excessive packaging.

It is about time that we publish not only population statistics but also consumption statistics. Thus the population of the poor countries stands at 4.5 billion people and that of the rich countries at 1.2. But the latter consume per person thirty times more Earth resources than the former. As a result, in terms of pressure on resources, the rich population amounts in reality to 36 billion people.

Which part of the world then must be considered overpopulated?

Volume III Chapter 6 The Rich Age

The Hindus call old age the period of vanaprashta, the preparation for the beyond. In their view, the last goal of life should be to become a sanyassin, a guru (teacher), a holy person, a saint. What a wise philosophy that is!
