It’s not your footprint, its the herd
Since the 60’s we are trained to think if we all just consume less it is going to be okay, while we dreamed that fantasy the world population grew another 4 billion people and the overconsuming piggery we call consumerism spread to China, India and Indonesia with a consumer class in excess of a billion and a half people.
Our standards of living went down, theirs went up and guess what, they are as ignorant, gluttonous and fat as we are.
Over population; it leads to a perpetual state of crisis, each technological solution bails us out of disaster with continued innovation and tightening of corporate control. At some point the clever ends and the market corrects.
We will achieve a sustainable level of population, perhaps a billion maybe two billion people, the only question is are we going to control the process. Unlikely.

The second part of the tax problem involves access to credit for the poor and the challenge of wages as a source of income in an age of automation.
“Fascism begins the moment a ruling class, fearing the people may use their political democracy to gain economic democracy, begins to destroy political democracy in order to retain its power of exploitation and special privilege.” — Tommy Douglas
