Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Without reading the comments, I note that there's no mention of psychological growth, not happiness, nor even hedonistic satiation.

Perhaps we could stabilize, or even diminish human population AND resource depletion, by making people happier with online blogs, games, and human interaction.

Observe Korean youth addicted to online gaming. Is that a bad thing? Why can't people pick their own poison -- we're all going to die anyway, and the cult of personal fulfillment may not lie along hiking national forest lines.

Just compensate for the lack of exercise with muscle stimulators, or even Wii-type gadgets, and stop imposing your idea of growth on the problem.

Grow minds, not lifestyles. Isn't that what you need to understand?

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
