Setting aside problems due to natural disaster such as tsunamis and hurricanes, there’s one solution for all the man-made problems of the world.

People should have to pass a test to get a license to have kids.

To pass this test, parents should demonstrate that they are able and eager to teach their kids the following:

  1. Compassion
  2. The value of education
  3. A strong work ethic
  4. Faith in one’s self
  5. Skepticism or critical thinking

Extra credit may be given for the ability to teach children about meditation and mindfulness.
