I the short term rationing makes sense, but in the long term humanity would benefit have greater numbers of manpower, thus the balancing act. The does not need to and will not exist forever, just long enough for us to learn how to expand our resources.

So the only purpose for a human to be alive might be to help the rest of humanity survive?

As anon said, the logic is that, as we cannot currently escape this world for another, then it would be a benefit to take care of it. In extension of, properly taking care of the world would best be done by everyone, thereore everyone should help take care for each other.
Also the size of the planet does not matter in his speech, it was a redundant phrase.

Ah, so he's simply saying that, because the world is relatively small then it is relatively valuable. And that it is necessary to preserve the resource that is the Earth until more can be found and inhabited. So it's not a moral debate at all, more of a statement on the current market value of a resource.

And yet he mentions that we should take care of our fellow human. That seems contradictory sense, in order to keep the Earth livable for longer, reducing the amount of competition for that finite resource would be the best way to "ration" it.

To poorly summarize what would be a long explanation, the idea is that we're mucking up the only place we've got.

Of course. There's certainly a place for all types of shop classes. But what he's illustrating here is that it's the lack of those classes that is the problem when it's not. Making all kids take shop is not going to fix poor scores or lack of interest in other fields. It's a problem with those fields itself.

He's criticizing a problem with the core curriculum but by suggesting a solution that wouldn't solve that problem.

James 5:20: let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.

Where does this fit in with don't judge? Furthermore in the Old Testament do you recall the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. When the angles came to Tots house, and were being attacked, and Lot attempted to intervene they asked something along the lines of "who are you to judge", and said that they would doll out a worse punishment for him. Therefore your theology is shit, and you need to shut your heretical mouth.

That's the problem that everyone seem to have with the don't judge verse. They read it as "Don't judge" but it actually says "Don't judge lest ye be judged." Judging someone is fine, but you will be held to the same standard in which you hold others. It's a warning, not a rule. Saying that if you get onto others for sexual sin then your sexual sin may be brought up as well so be cautious.

And so yes, if a Christian tries to bring a sinner back but does so by chastising them and calling them out on their sin, they may receive similar judgment.

I'm not sure what you mean by the Sodom verse though. Are you saying that we should be like the men who want to abuse the angels and not let anyone judge? I don't think that was the meaning of that verse at all. Notice that is sinners who demand not to be judged.
