“Putting an end to the population explosion will not of itself save the ecosphere, but not ending it will add greatly to the dangers the planet faces. The environment can sustain a quality of life for just so many people.” Michael Parenti, Blackshirts and Reds: Rational Fascism and the Overthrow of Communism. (1997), p. 155
C.F.I.T. is Controlled Flight Into Terrain, the pilot just flies the plane and the unsuspecting passengers into the ground, it happens surprisingly often. C.F.I.T. is a leading cause of airplane accidents involving loss of life, causing over 9,000 deaths since the beginning of the commercial age of air travel.
To understand our economy and population growth one must understand CFIT
Usually the pilot and co pilot are disagreeing on things, the second last thing the pilot does is turn off that annoying “Pull up! Terrain! Pull up now!” warning. Thinking the instruments, the warnings, the science of it all is wrong. Thinking that young punk of a co-pilot should keep his mouth shut and do what he is told, is the last mistake made.
Momentum and the permanence of the ground relative to a tube of aluminum foil traveling at 600km/hr is a powerful combination.
While you are nibbling on a little bags of candied walnuts fate is altering your future. Fate does not really care about your travel plans, personal truths or how many followers you have. You were put on this planet to shape our destiny for the better, that is all, you blew it, now Brace for impact!
And so it is, how can you as an individual “Brace for impact”?
Understand the plan, its for 100 million people in Canada. This is all through immigration, Canada will no longer be democratic but rather a balkanized country of minority / majority ridings played off against each other for political gain.
Consider the Climate impacts, reflect on the dozen or so major societies that have collapsed due to climate change. Our chances of survival are directly proportional to the size of our population, less people, more chance of survival.
Consider how we are destroying our habitat.
Consider that we are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction and human acctivity is the cause of it.
Maybe you need a metaphor to explain, Bathroom Freedom by Isaac Asimov and the Gumball Machine explains world hunger and overpopulation.
A Malthusian collapse is not a prediction, it is an observation. We have gone through dozens of them and yet we continue.
Polyanna-ism vs Malthusian, its a debate that will go on until it does not.
We have the potential to exists in harmony with other life forms, not destroying our life support system. We can figure out that number. We do not have the political or social capacity to act upon that information.
The rich love a larger population because more people means a bigger market with lower wages. The result of course is overcrowding.
In Canada high housing prices, land scarcity, labour shortages and overcrowding is caused by Immigration. Its the opposite of what the government says. Imagine that
The official motto of the nation of Oceania:
War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength
~George Orwell, 1984
Diversity is StrengthImagine the government telling you something not true
Castro was a good man
Honour killings not barbaric
~Justin Trudeau 2023
Mass immigration to Canada is about creating minority/majority riding’s that can be bribed by the party in power for support. Our population problems in Canada are all self inflected. Our housing and labour shortages, our crisis in education and health care caused not by an aging population but from mass immigration. Why Immigration?
To believe we need immigration you need total ignorance about Canadian Geography. Canada is a tiny country when you consider our habitable land. Vast if you consider Tundra, Mountains and exposed rock and gravel.
So what can you do:
1: As suggested by ~Wendell Berry~ in “Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front”
Expect the end of the world. Laugh.
Laughter is immeasurable. Be joyful
though you have considered all the facts.
2: Practice resilience, be independent of the corporate food system, have basic food on hand, not toilet paper. You will need flour, oats, cooking oil, enough to keep body and soul together until people stop eating each other.
3: Most importantly develop a community for self support, you don’t need guns you need locally produced flour, oats, and cooking oil. You will also need vitamin C to prevent scurvy, you can get that in cantaloupe, black currants, yellow peppers and kale. A garden may be in order.
4: Be aware, today in 2023
~India just stopped exporting sugar and tomatoes;
~India halted the exports of rice for the second year in a row due to geo-political scenario[s], El Nino sentiments and extreme climatic conditions in other rice producing countries”. The export ban affects one-fourth of rice exports.
~A searing heat wave in 2022 crushed India’s wheat production: New Delhi imposed a ban on exports that the world’s second-largest wheat producer still has not lifted more than a year later.
~South Korea’s seafood goes off market due to Fukushima fears
~Russia-Ukraine war leads to grain shortages in Africa
~Argentina, the planet’s biggest soy exporter and a top corn producer, has been suffering from its worst drought in 60 years, leading to sharp cuts in yields.
~Indonesia, the world’s largest exporter of palm oil, banned its exports briefly last year amid rising prices, triggering a global scramble for edible oils,
~Ukraine’s supplies of sunflower oil disrupted because of the war.
~Brazil, a major producer of soy oil suffered from droughts in recent years
~Canada had it’s lowest yield of canola oil in 14 years in 2021.
We are in the crisis now. Today 10% of the world is going hungry. 811 million people are going hungry. World hunger is on the rise from 2019 to 2020, the number of undernourished people grew by as many as 161 million, a crisis driven largely by conflict, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Its not a question of if our sytem will break down, it is a question of when.
A much longer in depth look at the Malthusian crisis to come.
