“Staving Off the Coming Global Overshoot Collapse”.
A welcome point of view.
The worst part about this issue is if you go on any of the popular social media forums and try to make even a subtle argument for some sort of ethical, non violent population control you get shouted down as a neo-nazi. People like David Attenborough have to be very quiet and circumspect when discussing the problem when instead, overpopulation should be shouted about from the rooftops.
These self-righteously indignant trigglypuffs sitting behind their tablets are condemning the world to a human disaster measured in the 100’s of Millions. They think of themselves as being of “the left” with their campaigns for gender-free toilets and investigations into Putin but all I see are self-satisfied hypocrites.
I was in Japan until recently for 15 years and when I returned a few months ago, it struck me that the Japanese people have rejected the endless, crushing working hours in pursuit of impossibly constant 2-5% GDP growth and have decided to simply relax and take a more Mediterranean view on life. So I see them sitting by the roadside with their OneCup sake, blissfully smoking a cigarette and chatting. Not spending much, not earning much, but enjoying their time.
This, of course, infuriates the out-of-touch, old guard who run the government and old family corporations. They see the common Japanese as betrayers of the Japanese system and shovel shedloads of stimulus cash into an open bonfire in an attempt to respark the economy. All to no avail but it does have the nice side effect of enriching those close to, and in power.
Kudos to you Z for stating your opinion clearly and out in front of the decision. We won’t hate you if you’re wrong.
“Hong Kong’s high street shop rents have fallen as much as 43%…”
Because Landlords (easy money thieves that they are) refused to innovate assuming their cash inflow from rents would last a 100 generations. Then the internet happened and people no longer needed a High Street front store to sell their goods. These tollbooth capitalists with their monopoly on locations for goods trading have been handed their hats and told to fck off. Today, a little girl with a bright fashion idea and a skilled pair of hands can go direct to the consumer and bypass these parasites.
Seems there’s more to the FIFA arrests than meets the eye. Israel scores a goal..

The whole economic system has delaminated. The rich can skidaddle at will now from any risks regardless of the cost to countries and their citizens.
