If all countries were developed countries, could the Earth sustain us all?
We all despise poverty, and everything that goes with it - hunger, abuse, slavery, poor education, and so on. We would prefer if everyone lived a comfortable life, educated with a decent house and job, sufficient food, electricity, indoor plumbing, washing machines, stoves, computers and other comforts.
Can the Earth sustain such a lifestyle for everyone? If not, what would need to be changed?
