Universal truth regarding those who calmly theorize a human die-back: they
*always* envision someone else, and someone else's children, being the ones
doing the dying back.  Never do they imagine themselves and their own
children and grandchildren as starving, suffering, dying under horrifying
circumstances, or doing anything other than enjoying a less populated planet
after someone else somewhere else has finished dying.
