Is It Worthwhile to Start Up a Business Today?

Our society can only exist in a stable form and continue to develop, if we all pitch in and work together, each according to his abilities, for the common well-being of all. If we wish to have a flourishing economy, then we must start to manage our resources wisely and provide meaningful work for all members of society (see ‹Equality for all›). The first step towards accomplishing this goal is to bring our population count back into balance with nature. This in turn can only be achieved through public education and a global consensus to implement a humanitarian program of global birth control.
