We used to be told that overpopulation will destroy civilization. Now that we are seeing dramatic plunges in birthrates, the new fear is that a collapse in the population will destroy civilization. Tech moguls and future-oriented researchers are turning to “pronatalism,” meaning literally “pro-birth,” looking for solutions to the problem.
