lol. Hell no, I'm not gonna read the 8+ pages of comments because I can only imagine the arguments stemming from this thread. I'm just here to state my opinion.
First of all... "The optimum human population of earth is zero." Well, then why aren't these people just killing themselves?? I don't know, makes sense to me. It'd be a good start anyway.
"Acceptable crimes"? No comment.
And one more point - If no animals were ever killed EVER and just left to be, our world would be overpopulated beyond belief, and we'd be up to our ears in dead animals because there would be an enormous lack of resources (ie. food, shelter, habitat, etc.).
