    re. “more population than resources, so prices go up”

    No argument from me. A law as inviolate as Gravity.

    Now do Japan & China where population is decreasing.

    And then Western Civ, which has lower than replacement birth rate, but influx of foreigners.

    No. That’s a superficial answer.

    World over, there has been a population explosion as a nation enters the modern world. After a while, they adjust.

    London, New York: Industial revolutios saw a boom.

    Europe late 19th, early 20th century: population explosion saw migration to America.

    China & India mid 20th century. Widespread famine form over-population. That is stable today.

    3rd world today: decrease in poverty, modern medicine, infant mortality —> people leave the bush & head to cities. Mexico City is huge, but it is is everywhere.

    In the past, it was normal for people to have large families. Yet, population was stable. Why? On average only 2 survived long enough to replace the 2 parents.

    Traditional norms honored large families. Traditions & values change slowly. It takes a couple generations of large families having all their children live & have dozens of grandchildren before a culture adapts to seeing small families as best.

    The pattern continues to repeat itself. We lived in Dar Es Salaam which grew from 3 to 7 Million in just a few years. People from all over Tanzania flocked to the city.

    Also works as a picture of Chinese baby girls.

    China has culled their girls for a couple generations.

    TDS is real. It magnifies one’s view of Trump, whether for or against, with spillover on Biden.

    Trump supporters say Biden is out of touch with dementia, but Biden is responsible for the current state of affairs. Can’t be both.

    Trump-haters say Biden is wise & a true leader, but has no control over the current state of affairs. (e.g., Biden’s unforced unconditional surrender in Afghanistan was because Trump made him do it.)

    re. Is gas still cheap in Canada? Didn’t think so.

    Did you know that the economies are deeply connected?

    Did you know that the Biden has more power in Canada than Trudeau?

    That Canadians can generally name all 50 states, but most Americans don’t know even know how many ‘providences’ there are, le’tlone name them.

    I know he, like Trump is blather bluster & balderdash. But do you really think he has no effect at all?

    I think he is accurately depicting the public’s assessment.

    Somehow it always turns out to be Trump.
