Do away with elections, entirely.
Replace them with random drawings of every eligible citizen in the district. The person drawn serves the same term as current officials. They receive the average pay of people in their district.

We would wind up with a far more diverse and representative government. It would drastically reduce the power of political parties, and money interests "buying" elections.

@Will_Janitor I agree. Somewhere along the line growth must outstrip resources.

Yep. Here is a typical overpopulation chart for any species, be they gypsy moths or humans.

In our case, however, we might be able to plan for a soft landing. If not, then Mother Nature has a crash in store for us.
