The logistics of having an exodus making a significant difference are somewhat difficult though. Consider the current birth rate of 350K new humans per day and compare with the lack of orbital launch capacity. Then try to figure out how to reach the manufacturing capability to build hundreds of city sized starships per year. One of the variables is going to have to change in some way or spreading across the galaxy isn't going to do much to reduce earth population.

Well, maybe someone will find a couple of dozen stargates tucked away somewhere.

Some individuals can sell themselves very well. That's why you find a lot of poorly qualified people with jobs they clearly don't deserve to have. Other people aren't too good at the whole job application process and convincing people they are the right one for the job. So they get passed over even if they have better actual skills. Seriously do you plan on hiring a candidate based on coding skill alone?

Air is water with holes in it.
