    Plants and animals are what we eat, but they’re also living things. So if Thanos snapped out half of all life would he Also be snapping out half of our food?

    If you people want an example of someone doing some mass genocide in a movie and it working out I’d say to watch Watchdogs. This was basically Adrian’s plan, except to use Manhattan instead of a shiny glove with some shiny rocks embedded in it. Also, it worked, since it was a lot more focused in what species it was attacking. Is it okay? Nah. Ends don’t justify means. A knot doesn’t justify a rope or string.

    Ahh, page 394. Werewolves. Even though were not meant to start learning about nocturnal beasts for another few weeks, but professor lupin is not capable of teaching at the moment so we got Snape.

    Before I watch this video I know why it wont work and I already realized this. The population will eventually rise again into the same issue. I WAS RIGHT!(edited after i watched the video) If he really wanted to save the universe he could have built more habitable planets. That would have prolonged it more

    I was satisfied with the infinity war ending. Felt it should have ended there. But it didn't.

    The quote that he "would shred the universe down to its last atom" didn't make him a generic villain to me. He realized that no matter how good he makes everyone's lives, they'll try to undo it. So he had a Matrix like idea. He was still the same Thanos to me.

    This is actually very similar to someone wanting to snap their fingers with the gauntlet on so they could wipe out all of the evil people on a global scale. Sure, the world would be at peace for a couple generations, but (and I'm kind of spoofing Thanos' lines from Endgame) for as long as there are those who pertain from the Fall of man, there will always be those who fall short of God's glory, and will seek rebellion.

    The part you're glossing over is that Thanos didn't aim to cut the population of each species by 50%..it's all life by 50%.

  • That One Guy With The Face

    Hey thanos here's a better plan if long term conservation of materials is what you're truly after. Okay your wielding something that within the confines of its own universe has infinite power so you snap your fingers and say let the sustainable population of each life bearing planet be reduced to the exact number the solar system which they dwell can support through renewable resources then prevent them from EVER going above that number and prevent them from leaving said system, then give them the technology to optimally use said resources and BOOM problem solved. Now for something with infinite power that is just as easy as killing off 50% of life only FAR more effective

  • That One Guy With The Face

    Um..hey bro, do you know what genocide is? I don't think ya do if you keep calling 50% genocide as it's actually the deliberate culling of ALL life in a spasific category which movie thanos dosnt really hit into. Last I checked 50% isn't 100% no.. not at all its uhh.. half.. I Comic thanos... genocidal, death worshiping, completely over powered lunatic.

    I've nearly shouted this as much as possible. Thanos was just an economist. Check out a person named Thomas Malthus. He was an economist in England around 1850. He predicted that the population growth was going to exceed the food production. This would cause all of England to collapse. He actually had some good points, but was proven wrong. Obviously this didn't happen, and population growth is not as bad an issue for consuming scarce resources. The reason he was wrong is because of technology growth. The industrial revolution in 1850 and technological growth allowed us to grow more food to fix the problem.

    People seem to think the same thing about jobs, that people are 'taking their jobs', which is completely untrue. More people means more consumers and workers which means a larger economy. Its not as simple as half as many people means twice as many jobs, because you've got half as much work that needs done.

    About the whales in the hudson,
    There’s more whales there because it’s not as busy with boats so the whales probably deemed it save enough to come closer to humanity not because there are more whales in existence.

    Wait there is another flaw in thanos’s plan you can’t snap in a metal glove

  • RagePraehotec
    RagePraehotec Month ago

    The problem that the snap also doesn't deal with is that if you took 50% of everyone away from a developed part of the world/universe, the other 50% would immediately start dying off from starvation. You can argue that a hunter/gather society, where everyone there knows some basics about all aspects of survival, could hang on if half of them were wiped out. But in a developed region were everyone specializes in a particular job and has currency to account for all the things they can't do individually, if suddenly lots of them were missing, there would be gaping holes in the pattern that no one is able to immediately fill. While I think that in a few centuries everything would stabilize and start growing again, a 5 year interval would probably see a collapse of modern society. I find it totally unbelievable that 5 years after the snap, everyone is just casually going about life. Yeah they're sad for the people lost, but beyond that there aren't really any consequences.

    Although i agree we would see a population boom, there would be other factors to consider. Medical medicine, and other specialized fields would experience a major dip. So i do not think the boom would be as rapid as you would think. Yes the world would repopulae, but ut would take time

    Ya know what plan woulda worked if Thanis did care about the universe? He coulda just used the infinity gauntlet to create infinite resources. Then that overpopulation is under population compared to what is possible with infinite resources. Also, it would've decreased wars because wars are usually fought over resources. Furthermore, he could've established true balance in the universe with this idea. What do ya'll think?

    Also, if there’s only enough resources for half the population, why not snap to create double the resources?

    I loved Thanos as a villain, but was SO annoyed over his plan. His was absolutely the most tragic and short term solution.
    He could have made it harder to conceive and easier to give birth. There. I’m inevitable...

    I don't think it's a dumb move at all. Thanos is both intentionally and unintentionally helping himself. By destroying the stones he's keeping his enemies from undoing his actions, and on the other hand he's also helping any future galactic threats action from being able to being reversed.

    I really think Endgame highlighted how not sympathetic Thanos is.People loved him as if he was a protagonist after Infinity War. This guy has been bad throughout. Gamora alone proves that (Please see Movies With Mikey's review of Infinity War, he relates Thanos to IRL abusive parents). His actions in Endgame just show that he is the spoiled little brat that says if I can't have a toy, no one gets it.
