Canadian middle class residents are considered in the top 1% when it comes to quality of life, and standard of living. It's only getting worse. We really do not have an accurate picture of how the world has changed over the last 25 years, until we start living in countries where close to the entire population lives in absolute poverty.

Just look at the Olympic Games in Rio as an example of the negative effects of overpopulation. Pollution, crime, lack of sanitary conditions, zika virus, etc.
You're correct with you're first paragraph, but that is not due to overpopulation, but corruption. As far as food production, if we replaced coffee with food crops, most central and south American countries could throw food away at the rate that we do. I've done missionary work in Africa, Mexico, Cuba and Guatemala, and I can tell you, the so-called 1% are an absolute blight on the rest of the world.
