We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Deinstitutionalization... The activists that have been campaigning against institutionalizing those with severe mental illnesses do not hang around to see the end results of their successful campaigns. Mental illness and drug abusers fill the sidewalk tent cities that rival third world conditions.
...before we have enough? That would be a sense of "crowdedness" as mentioned by the non-Malthusians. Some love cities and others need the countryside. Statists will always insist we are on the threshold of mass extinction as they have no confidence in technical progress or change in human desire.
Re: the diversity training article. It begins by saying Geroge Floyd was killed. Any casual observer knowledgeable of the facts would disagree and say that Geroge Floyd died of a drug overdose. It was important for a segment of the population to punish a couple of policemen who happened to be unlucky enough to encounter George Floyd. And THAT right there is the problem! You can stick your diversity up your ass if it is really a tool to give Blacks absolute power. Ditto for LBQT whatever and other POCs. Because Geroge Floyd was black two good men had to go to jail to make a bigoted entitled group happy. THAT is their idea of diversity so FU.
Back in the 1970s I read an article in Time Magazine (this was before it became a thin, bitter little rag) about some expert, a scientist or a journalist, I don't remember which, who predicted that the earth's population would reach about 8-9 billion people and then the numbers would start to decline. This was when Ehrlich captured the public's imagination with his "we're all going to starve so death" bushwah, so I suppose the expert was dismissed out of hand. But whoever he was, I think he was right because that appears to be what's happening.
Maybe more people than we have now isn't a good idea, but once we start moving onto other planets and moons, there won't be nearly enough people. So we either need to procreate or we need to perfect our automation technology, because we're not going to get to the stars otherwise.
All the Rinos and Republican elite and lobbyists destroyed the tea party. You remember the tea party. The tea party supporters evolved to be Trump supporters so all the elite, Rinos, lobbyist MSM etc. are destroying Trump. What this is really about is stopping Americans, NOT people born somewhere else brought here to replace Americans but actual Americans, from keeping their country. The country was sold to the highest bidder and no we are just parting out the pieces of it selling it to China and giving it away to Africa and India. As soon as they are done dividing the riches and taking it away they will come after you, that means YOU Americans born here for generations, they will take your homes your bank accounts, your retirements, and finally your lives. The ONLY thing in their way once they fully destroy Trump is that pesky 2nd amendment. But watch... They are going after that too...
