Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
It says right in our own Declaration of Independence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.
Any so-called "rights" beyond that, which one might attribute only to citizens, are not rights at all.... rather the product of a dystopian, fascist mindset.
Carrying capacity is dynamic. It changes along with improvements in technology and infrastructure. The US is nowhere near carrying capacity. Would be cool if the US had 1 billion people. Imagine Seattle with 10 million people? Or LA with 50 million. Would be magnificent. Maybe one day
I don't have proof for any of this, but you have to wonder.
LA cannot support anywhere near that many people. Even if the court ordered re-watering of the Owens river was overturned they couldn't put near enough water down the pipes . And have you been to LA recently? Where will 50 million people go?
