“Meanwhile, the country is being forced to scarcity of resources (crashing the civilization), so its probably a moot point.”
Yeah, we will be going K very shortly, so Conservatism will come back with a vengence.
It’s like animals. You can’t keep up the free resource availability forever. Sooner or later, you reach the carrying capacity, adn K-selection sets in.
That sort of reminds me what an economist (Sowell?) once said about money: The purpose of money is to allocate scarcity. It seems to me that having an infinite amount of money would be really bad, yet spreading that stuff around is the engine of Democrat politicians. The more the better. They’re making a bad societal situation worse, it seems.
