That is not really all that high compared to 8 billion.

It will be the highest in history, and not getting better , not very good news for the young .
Population will also be the highest in history. As a percent of the population, (I don't have figures at this moment) I doubt it would be the highest in history. It was worse during the Great Depression. (200 million out of 8 billion would be 2.5%).

Freedom is a state of mind. Nobody can take that from you unless you let them.
THIS THIS THIS.
The % of these people is OVERWHELMINGLY THE YOUTH. 16-25 year olds and into the late 20s.
How the hell is society supposed to work like a well oiled machine when an entire generation, those who are to drive progress for the next 30 years...CANT GET A JOB TO FEED THEMSELVES?!?!
Look at Greece and Spain...These are first world nations that have slipped into 2nd world status in just a few years...50% youth unemployement.
The problem is the same in the USA, England, Ireland...
This is a total rape of all FUTURE endeavors.

It is my ace in the hole on gun debates: Are you willing to force conditions on the future, when you do not know what the future will bring? Best let the young grow with the right to defend themselves, and the unborne too. Stalin may have died, Mao may be dead, Hitler may be rotted, but they will be back... Thats a fact.
Once liberties are taken they are not peacefully given back. Take the Patriot act and the 4th for example.

Ignorance, the precondition of knowledge. Not frequently mistaken for innocence, which is the real shame. Ignorance is the chaos from which knowledge can grow, but never organize. The untilled soil of a receiving mind. Of Ignorance, I plead ignorance.
The world's population is 7 billion, not 8 billion. The PDF link to the report doesn't seem to work for me, but 26.3% of the population is younger than 15 and 7.9% is older than 65, and if they don't count those, then the "working age" population is about 4.6 billion, or about 4.3% unemployed.
