What you don't realize is that more space junk is a "GOOD" thing. It takes a super large amount of energy to overcome our gravity well every time we want to leave home.
With enough junk in orbit, we can create more jobs for all of those out of work astronauts. We can mine the junk, set up orbiting heavy industries (such as steel mills), and manufacture new space vehicles while in orbit.
Since "we" will already be in orbit, think how much less energy needs to then be used for deep space exploration!
Golly, we can then go out and mine the asteroids, scoop gas from the giant planets (meaning we need less gas from our politicians), set sail in the solar wind, ........ Where will it end?
