This makes me sad. No one's perfect but I've never met anyone who goes through more personal pain to fight for an inspiring future for humanity - and has done so tirelessly for decades.

Seriously? Name some verifiable examples and not just YOUR opinion. I have yet to see him do anything for the benefit of others but plenty of things for his own personal benefit ..... I'm waiting ....
You're responding to a quote from the mother of his kids on Twitter, who responding to a politician giving him the finger. Maybe the embed was disabled on your browser, but considering she personally knows Elon, I'm sure she has plenty to say about him with "verifiable examples". Maybe you should try DM'ing her on Twitter if you're so interested: https://twitter.com/shivon

The reverse is true.. More people means more scientists, more engineers, more artists and authors. More progress in any and all fronts. Just as a dynamic, powerful cpu requires billions of transistors, modern society requires billions of people to work effectively.

As one small example, consider that there are rare diseases in the world that literally have only 1 or 2 people studying them. If the world population was a third its current size, there would be no one whatsoever doing so.

For every smart and hard working person there is a lot of people who do the minimum to get by. A larger population will increase the number of people who move civilization forward, but you get a much larger increase of people who hold progress back.
