Empty half the Earth of its humans.
It´s the only way to save the planet

Guardian [UK], by Kim Stanley Robinson

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/21/2018 4:38:23 AM

Discussing cities is like talking about the knots in a net: they’re crucial, but they’re only one part of the larger story of the net and what it’s supposed to do. It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That’s why we call it civilisation. This origin story underlines how agriculture made cities possible, by providing

Sorry Kim, but you should look at facts before you spill your swill. Cities are dens of criminal activity. Witness SF, LA, NYC, Chicago, etc. Why don´t you plead to get rid of the free and open criminal element that resides in them? Is it because you prefer that element?

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

So turn everything over to a Soviet style planning agency that will set all in order for the good of the planet.

Yeah, sure, we KNOW how that turned out. The planners made out pretty well. The rest of the people, not so much. The planet, not at all.

Such prophets want us to accept their dubious declarations of disaster without challenge. They then paint the pretty picture created by their solution. BOCare ring a bell? If they couldn´t properly plan a healthcare system for one country, HOW could they possibly manage the ecosystem for the whole planet?

The truth is that their threat is overblown and their solution is impossible. Just because someone can paint a picture of their impression of Heaven doesn´t mean they have the slightest ability to actually create Heaven.

I do have to say that getting rid of the Left would make the planet much more livable. Maybe they would be willing to sacrifice for the cause they so believe in?

I do not have a name for this kind of philosophy. But, in objective truth, this is the first time I have seen this addressed publically. It is the truth- the problem is not a pollution, or ecology or global warming (bologna) problem. It is a ´too GD many people´ problem.

All the social BS, the raging illegal immigration, the socialism, the craziness- that is all about too many people. And with the new age of digital communication, now they ALL want first world goodies and they simply can not have them. The world was fine when only 1% of the people had plenty to eat, good housing, refrigerators, cars, air conditioning while 99% were still lugging water 12 miles from the nearest mud hole, living on a bowl of rice every two days. But, now, that is over and it is over almost instantly.

Humans are not part of nature anymore. They are nature predators. They shifted from being contributors to being parasites about 3,000 years ago.

How to solve it? We do not solve it. We first can not bring ourselves to even discuss it rationally. No one want´s to participate- naturally. So, Mother nature will solve it for us. And probably pretty soon. She solves mistletoe, doesn´t she? Too bad, too. We are smart enough to solve it. But, we are emotional toddlers. Emotionally, we as animals, are absolute basket cases.

Robinson is one of the worst - and therefore, most celebrated - "science" fiction authors since L. Ron Hubbard. Even his biggest fans admit that he´s boring. Having read his smackhead travelogue "Red Mars" I believe they´re being too kind, but fans will fan. Maybe it helps to be high on oxy, I don´t know, never had any. If you´re on anything weaker, his work is painful. If you´re sober, forget it.

Now that the Reader Advisory is out of the way,

"So these emptied landscapes should not be called wilderness. Wilderness is a good idea in certain contexts, but these emptied lands would be working landscapes, commons perhaps, where pasturage and agriculture might still have a place."

That´s right, move all the agriculturalists into the cities, commandeer their land, and run it as common property.

It worked so well in the Soviet Union and China, didn´t it?

Robinson´s too bad a writer to actually say what he means. He means to kill more hundreds of millions of people, on purpose, through starvation.

It´s really hard to figure out what this author is suggesting. He seems to be saying that people should congregate in cities and leave the rest of the earth uninhabited. But then he says it´s already happening. So it´s unclear what his point is. He also suggests that there would be work in the uninhabited areas. So I guess those areas would have to be populated after all. This is just more liberal/fascist lunacy. We saw how well social engineering worked under Mao and Pol Pot.

Just look at history. China´s Mao. Russia´s Stalin. Hitler´s Germany. Look at Venezuela, North Korea, and Iran today. Look at ISIS and what they did when they setup a nation. How many people died?

What will happen to the democracies of the world if civil unrest becomes too wide spread? What are the odds they will slip into brutal dictatorships deciding who will live and who will die?

People who live in cities, from the very beginning, did so as a matter of convenience and commerce. That´s where businesses, and therefore jobs, are centralized. It certainly wasn´t because of the aesthetics of living in loud, congested, polluted and crime laden streets with up to millions of others, with no sense of community.

I´ll admit I haven´t read the article and do not intend to. The post at 14 is simple, it doesn´t address all possible solutions, of course but there is much truth. If we do not resolve our "carrying-capacity" problem, as a species, ourselves, it will be resolved for us, at least on this earth.

We should have a comprehensive and open-ended world-wide discussion (or argument) on curbing population growth. All beings, naturally, want to reproduce themselves; we must curb that instinct before it is curbed for us ...

NATO’s Challenge Is Germany, Not America
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/19/2018 11:36:33     Post Reply
During the recent NATO summit meeting, a rumbustious Donald Trump tore off a thin scab of niceties to reveal a deep and old NATO wound — one that has predated Trump by nearly 30 years and goes back to the end of the Cold War. In an era when the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact are now ancient history, everyone praises NATO as “indispensable” and “essential” to Western solidarity and European security. But few feel any need to explain how and why that could still be so. Does NATO still protect the West? Does it prevent destructive European feuding? Does it

Trump wouldn´t give the media a

Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/19/2018 5:13:25     Post Reply
You can acknowledge that President Trump gave an embarrassingly weak performance at the press conference following his face-to-face meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, while rejecting the media’s weird preoccupation that Trump didn’t publicly insult Putin to his face. In 2018, every day goes down as a bad day if Trump didn’t use it to condemn Russia for interfering with the 2016 election. If you didn’t watch the conference live on Monday and instead only saw the media’s coverage of it, you’re forgiven for maybe falling under the impression that Trump disowned the U.S. intelligence community and pledged allegiance to Putin.

Last Sunday, a 59-year-old woman on the West Side of Chicago was killed by a would-be carjacker. The felon walked up to the driver’s side of the car, which was being driven by a 71-year-old man, and pulled his gun. The senior citizen refused to surrender the vehicle and kept driving. The would-be carjacker opened fire at the car, striking the woman in the head and killing her. The night before, on the South Side, a Chicago officer killed a 37-year-old man whom the officer’s patrol partners had observed behaving in a manner suggesting that he was carrying a gun. The

Senate Republicans broke a record on Wednesday for the number of appeals court judges confirmed during a president´s first two years. Senators voted 50-49 on Andrew Oldham´s nomination to be a judge on the 5th Circuit, making him Trump´s 23rd circuit court judge confirmed since he took office last year. That breaks the previous record set by President George H.W. Bush, who got 22 appeals court judges confirmed during his administration´s first two years.

Is anyone surprised that disgraced former FBI director James Comey has joined the ranks of other never-Trumpers like Max Boot, George Will and Steve Schmidt in urging Republicans to vote Democrat in the midterm elections? (Snip for tweet)These erstwhile Republicans are hoping their clarion call will cause a stampede of "reluctant Trumpers" to give Democrats the majority in Congress in order to maintain "the nation´s honor," as George Will put it. In Comey´s case, he also has a vested interest in seeing the oversight committees switch from red to blue.

President Donald Trump chose to have the indictments of 12 Russian hackers announced before his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a Tuesday Bloomberg report. Trump wanted the indictments announced ahead of the Monday summit to give him leverage over Putin, a source familiar with the matter told Bloomberg on Tuesday. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Trump the option of having the indictments released before or after Helsinki, according to the report. Rosenstein cited national security concerns to allow him to share details of grand jury proceedings with Trump. Rosenstein announced Friday that a grand jury had indicted 12

As anybody who was alive and awake for the past decade can tell you, Obama has never, ever lied about anything. And as they can also tell you, accusing him of lying is racist. That´s why all the smart, cool people make a big show of believing everything Obama says and never questioning his devotion to the truth.

There is loose talk of “treason,” and no one expected more from Jimmy Kimmel: He is a comedian and, as he has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt, a fool—a reminder that “comedian” and “fool” were at one point near-synonyms in English.
