I'm not suggesting that humanity self-regulates, I'm suggesting that all populations regardless of species self regulate based on the resources available to them in their environment. As populations grow, resources shrink. Eventually the resources will be insufficient to sustain the population, and thus the population begins to decline. It follows that, as we overpopulate the planet, eventually (and this is already happening in many places) resources become scarce, and populations begin to regualte. It's naive and idealistic to think that we can do much about it. I'm not saying we shouldn't try to make the world a better place, just don't act all suprised when, in spite of our efforts, the s**t still hits the fan.
