I desire the reader will observe, that I calculate my remedy for this one individual Kingdom of Ireland, and for no other that ever was, is, or, I think, ever can be upon Earth.
Discuss this problem and propose some solutions.
A fair defense can be put forward for the view that the worldis infinite or that we do not know that it is not. But, in termsof the practical problems that we must face in the next fewgenerations with the foreseeable technology, it is clear that wewill greatly increase human misery if we do not, during theimmediate future, assume that the world available to theterrestrial human population is finite. "Space" is noescape.

List some basic rules you should know.
In a still more embryonic state is our recognition of theevils of the commons in matters of pleasure. There is almost norestriction on the propagation of sound waves in the publicmedium. The shopping public is assaulted with mindless music,without its consent. Our government has paid out billions ofdollars to create a supersonic transport which would disturb50,000 people for every one person whisked from coast to coast 3hours faster. Advertisers muddy the airwaves of radio andtelevision and pollute the view of travelers. We are a long wayfrom outlawing the commons in matters of pleasure. Is thisbecause our Puritan inheritance makes us view pleasure assomething of a sin, and pain (that is, the pollution ofadvertising) as the sign of virtue?
How to deal with widespread illiteracy?

The most important aspect of necessity that we must nowrecognize, is the necessity of abandoning the commons inbreeding. No technical solution can rescue us from the misery ofoverpopulation. Freedom to breed will bring ruin to all. At themoment, to avoid hard decisions many of us are tempted topropagandize for conscience and responsible parenthood. Thetemptation must be resisted, because an appeal to independentlyacting consciences selects for the disappearance of allconscience in the long run, and an increase in anxiety in theshort.
Should we change laws related to guns?
But we can never do nothing. That which we have done forthousands of years is also action. It also produces evils. Oncewe are aware that the status quo is action, we can then compareits discoverable advantages and disadvantages with the predictedadvantages and disadvantages of the proposed reform, discountingas best we can for our lack of experience. On the basis of such acomparison, we can make a rational decision which will notinvolve the unworkable assumption that only perfect systems aretolerable.
