        The first step has to be to stop population growth.  That's pretty much 
        in all the OECD nations, except the U.S. and it would be the case there 
        except for immigration from the south.  How to stop population growth: 
        women* so they can lead meaningful lives aside from bearing children 
and provide
        readily available birth control; and get rid of Catholicism, Mormonism, 
and any
        other religion preaches against birth control.

    That is exactly how to stop population growth. Wherever women are given 
equal rights
    the birth rate drops dramatically (if they are forced to choose between 
children and
    a career, it drops precipitously - the places that get the balance right 
allow you
    to do both).

The rates aren't just stable in OECD nations, they are negative. It seems given the choice and long enough time frames the human population will drop to zero. (this of course ignores future trends such as technical solutions to ageing and the technological singularity, but it is an interesting observation of human nature.)

Maybe human nature responds to perceived crowding.
