All of which problems have some basis in overpopulation, which magnifies the impact of greed.

The main reason not to discuss overpopulation here is that it is something that is nearly impossible to do anything intentional about, so we might as well just address its consequences and figure out how to live with it (which, of course, is ultimately impossible).

Oops! Have I just discussed overpopulation?
