"And i was wondering about contrasting that with the reason why they left zero population group because it seems like at some point he wanted to be more kind of balls to the wall and overt with this stuff but between then and eighty five. He himself realized the power of subtlety. Yeah yeah that's an interesting comparison. I think you know one of the things. That is so chilling about at water subscription. Southern strategy is how clear-sighted. It was in terms of like the ability to sublimate this vulgar racism in vulgar white supremacy into more acceptable more civil sounding language without losing any of the Without losing any of the kind of toxicity in the and violence of you know what the language is saying and ten is describing with this seat Stage theory idea. Is i think in a way kind of is in a way. it's kind of the opposite. Because what he wants is to push the terms of the conversation and the discourse in a direction where people can like away from the kind of subornation and away from the kind of coded language into being able to talk about as he said immigration openly as as a as a problem the problem of immigration which was not something at the time that was just it was just not a way that people is not it was just like kind of not in the discourse is way way of thinking about this And so it is. I do think. I do think that there is their similarities to to to the southern strategy. Into what is doing But i think it's the it's almost in the opposite direction. Always.

"Frustration with environmentalists queasy response to his ideas about immigration led him to start his own his own movement. And from there you kind of go into could dealey escape. May i was wondering if you could talk about that moment. Where he breaks from zero population growth in connects with critically escape main. Who could heal escaped. Me is yeah so credit escape. is She's a woman who was in an heiress to the Fortune gives are very wealthy family. That are sort of a branch of the even wealthier mellon family. There's sort of together. American capitalist aristocracy Tinton in cornelius may met through one or another of these conservationist organizations and shared and analysis shared a shared anxieties about the what they saw as the deficiency of the environmentalist and conservationist movements to take up the nativist. 'cause to be in their estimation be honest about the pressures that mass immigration was putting on on the environment and so it was that relationship that enabled canton to start his own organizations to start founding and cultivating these institutions. Which may she was. Not the only funder There were a variety of other folks that they knew that she connected him with that he courted courted Relationships that cultivated over the course of the eighties nineties and really up until and after her death. cornelius me was the was the primary funder of these organizations. All of which have sort of innocuous sounding names like federation for american immigration reform center for immigration studies but which have had a very insidious effect on our politics insofar as kind of formalize A latent white nationalist worldview And may his his correspondence with canton's correspondence with scape may was able to read through in quote at length in the book in show how he played on her fears about Basically like kind of racial displacement which was a concern that she shared a lot of kind of far right intellectuals of the time the time being the late seventies eighties and still today that are kind of given different.

"You know, I didn't believe the editorial. It just struck me because I had 40 people working for me. 30 of them or Gen Xers. And I didn't have any lazy people. So I called in our research department, which was one brilliant young He had young guy. I said, Listen, I want you I want you to do a deep dive. On the people that were born 65 to 84. I want to know everything about them. Because it's you know, there was a book out by Kenneth Copeland called Gen X, and in the book he called them slackers. And it was very popular to call this generation entitled and lazy. But but it didn't follow for me. So the he went off and did. His study came back a few days later and said, uh, into my office and I said Okay, let's let me have it. And he said, really looked in statistical abstract I looked in census data looked in CIA factbook looked looked into your labor statistics. I got all the the, uh, you know. The research has already been done on this generation, and he said they're never going to perform at the level of the bloomers. And I said, so there's some standards. They're lazy, and he said no, there's fewer of them. It was like looking at I'm saying What He said. Yes. Can you just were fewer of them Born? Between 1965 in 18 84. Our fertility dropped like a stone, he said. There was this whole thing. First of all, There was this mentality of zero population growth right on, people just had fewer kids. He said. If you take a look at the baby boomers, the peak of the baby boomers 1957 Was 4,300,000 babies 1957. That's why, and let's come back. It will come back to that day because that's an important date. The trough of Generation X was 1974 with three million babies. So do the math. I mean, just why were things going down instead of up? In terms of population in terms of population terms of babies. I believe it had a lot to do with the parents. Did nothing suspicious like this Chinese mentality? No, no, it it was. It was different than that. If you look at the generations in the United States And you know, I only go back to 1905. 1924, But that's that's the first generation that I deal with. What were they called my right and they're called. That's called the G I generation Did. They were the They were really an elite group. And they were there was about close to 57 million indigenous people born between in that period in the United States. 19 or 5, 18 24. But we get another 15 million that came to the United States. Aziz Immigrant immigration in that in that generation, so that generation was huge. It was 70 million. Big, big generation. Generation right after it Born 1925 1944. For a couple reasons one of the great Depression and then to the war. There was no immigration zero. So it was only the people that were born here and there were only about 50 million people born here. Because I guess people cut their fertility during the Depression. They were depressed. You think it would have gone up? No, like more free time to work that way. Yes. So so The generation X born 65 84. Their parents were the silent generation born 1925 1944, So it's a small, small group of parents. Small number of kids and it was, you know that that kind of simple So we once we discovered that generation excellence small. And in describing their abilities to accomplish things, my researchers said can it would be like Ah football team where one team was allowed to have nine players in one team was allowed to have 11 players and the team was 11 players always want Is it because they're better players? He said. No, It's just that there's not enough of them. They just those with most consume or obviously exactly well and the go back to 1957. 1957. We have 4,300,000 babies born in the United States, the team that beat the Russians and hockey was born in 18, 50..

"Said welcome to how the world it's spy take on how we may intentionally or accidentally meet our own extinction for a moment. I WanNa talk about the brave new world. I know that what I talk about is the end of the world and his podcast. But I often think about the fictional dystopia is. We've read about in school. Brave new world by Aldous Huxley is about to be made into a TV show for a streaming network and those who have not picked up a book will know how Bizarre Vision Huckabee had for the future of mankind. Dystopia stories have one thing in common character suffers. So you don't have to. That means that we do not have to suffer in a dystopia by choice. We've been warned. Genetic engineering scarcity ordering security the cost of Liberty. These stories were written and the suffering. Was there in hopes. It would stay there and not leap out of the page into our reality. What started out as an apparent effort to prevent a novel coronavirus from sticking nation and the world has become yet another means by which world governments including our own could expand on those powers Abuser Authority and further oppress constituents until now. The police state has been more circumspect in its power grabs but this latest state of emergency has brought the beast out of the shadows. We're on a slippery slope to outright despotism from there we have dystopia then from there we have something called the final solution. You know you've heard that term. Before it was what Hitler had planned for the Jews it was also uttered by Bill Gates on late. Night with Stephen. Colbert Gates talked about innovating testing and tracking of people during the covid nineteen outbreak. And then he said. The final solution is the vaccine's. Colbert awkwardly joked just to head off the conspiracy theories Mr Gates. Maybe we should not call vaccine. The final solution gates laughed and said good point. He laughed. Maniacally historical record shows that crises including wars famines food scandals as well as pandemics change institutions and have long lasting impacts unaffected societies. We'll find ourselves over the next few months and years. In the middle of a natural experiment for sustainability will be an experiment and how we survive without falling into what is known as the apocalypse etiquette where we are forced to decide what is appropriate to keep your family fed and healthy. The question is after a disaster of EPIC PROPORTIONS DO Morals Change. What is it okay to rationally stealing for the sake of survival? There seems to be this ambiguity morality in times of disasters however we see in movies and on television shows people who steal during disasters and many of us really have a tough time understanding the motives for those who loot and in reality. There seems to be this code of ethics in situations where there was virtually no hope to survive without stealing drugs or food or in some cases appliances in most disaster situations. The threat of human revolt and desperation seems to be far more devastating than the disaster itself while the event of an earthquake hurricane or flood creeds billions of dollars in damage. The toll of human suffering and death leads to be do desperate things and it's includes deciding the morality of stealing and there are also other more serious decisions as to who dies or whether or not you was killed for survival or in the most desperate situation whether it's moral to eat a human or a pet for sustenance. I know this is the conversation that happens all the time but since we are now wondering about a full-scale apocalypse perhaps it is time to open up and speak without fear about the issue of the breaking point. Where you decide that. It's time to throw out what you're used to and climb into a dumpster and find sustenance from UNFINISHED PIZZA. Nestle between those cigarette butts and beer cans as really isn't a requirement for survival. If you're prepared but if you aren't then when we are desperate when people are desperate th they're entitled to help themselves right or whether they're gonNA themselves to what can point between the diapers and toilet paper and hand sanitizer white screen. Tv's or police officers required shooter arrest you the looting start spontaneously how quickly it stops appears to depend on how rapid and severe response it meets. That is the argument for using lethal force decisively. However would you feel better if you knew? The police gunned down a group of kids stealing drugs. Or would you go easy on kids stealing bread and milk? How are we allowing the stealing of computers and appliances during a disaster? Do we say to ourselves a ceiling. Food is okay. Appliances are wrong. Is it far more acceptable to steal from a destroy department store or from someone carrying groceries to feed their family? Will they be judged failing if people decide to sell things on the black market or people who go door to door begging for bread well surprisingly contrary to popular belief the impoverished of the least likely to loot the rich and middle class find themselves looting in order to maintain a sense of security the impoverished are used to going without however the rich and the middle class find themselves in desperate situations because of the lack of creature comforts and access to those conveniences? Make it harder to cope and soon even the most content are more likely to resort to stealing things like gasoline clothing and food. The idea that moral struggle to adjust as such events makes the apocalyptic angle a compelling struggle with what we're told is wrong and what is necessary to survive as indicated no government. God or anything else will save you from making difficult decisions about your mortality and the lives of those you love. We all have to face the harsh reality of neighborhood problem when people reach a point where they are unable to deal with being hungry alone or depressed. Unfortunately we're hearing about more suicides happening. Now as they are competing with deaths that have been reported for covid nineteen and as much as Bill Gates is being praised as a hero in the COVID. Nineteen struggle the idea of the final solution was how to exterminate the Jews. Using the Orwellian term population dynamics whatever population dynamics well. Population Dynamics are where lethal control is widely employed randomly to suppress the numbers of people animals Bill Gates and others were speaking of net zero with regard to global co two emissions. Zero population growth is a trend before covid nineteen the February nineteen ninety seven issue of George magazine included a survival guide to the future that featured various commentators describing how the world was now and providing their thoughts on what the would be like in Twenty Twenty. The actual article was entitled. A Nation's future foretold. It was divided into themed sections such as Transportation Education Environment Crime Warfare and Food Bill Gates was interviewed in the feature the time and said that he funded population control programs in the same article. He's allegedly quarter to saying and overpopulated. Planet would be choked to extinction by a lung tacking virus. Well the real world Sherfield STOEP now and there's both injustice in suffering. None of this is the fault of the business. Owner's shutdown or the patient struggling to breathe or the families losing loved ones. The cost of livelihoods in lives is the definition of unjust suffering and we now experiencing and impersonal tyranny. Were being separated called and we could be spirit away even more so than we were prior to covid nineteen just as the world of Huxley's famous novel divided people into different color. Coded professional casts a situation where some people have covert immunity certificates and others. Don't could quickly split the labor force and the people who can easily find jobs and those who can't it will split a family's church groups marriages and relationships all leading to the final solution all leading to the end of the world. This has been how the world will end if you WANNA be prepared for what comes next. Go TO PREPARE WITH GROUND ZERO DOT COM at forbear with ground zero. Dr John Lewis..

"Sixty percent of their profitability. They were the fastest growing brands so they said to all of their brands. Go Find Your authentic purpose when you engage people particularly young people when they have a say in how. They're doing their job when they are able as part of their day. The job to be implementing more sustainability. This is what gives you the higher productivity of labour and that then delivers there's higher profitability engaged workforce's have eighteen percent higher productivity sixteen percent higher profitability again. Dan This is just better business so this is what we teach for example at the Bard NBA. Where I teach in which sustainability is woven into every class we teach? It's not a bolt on. It's not an elective. It's the way we teach how to do accounting or strategy. I I think it's going to turn out better business leaders. Well Hunter. Thanks so much for this conversation. Hate to bring it to a close. We could have taken a deep deep dive down any of the avenues that we got into. But we'll save those conversations for another time if you'd like to have the last word any final thoughts thanks to all of you who listen to this podcast. Thanks for caring what you do. The choices you make in your life are what will determine the future of humanity and Dave. I'm deeply grateful to you for all the work that you've always done and I'm grateful to your listeners. That they take the time and that they care care together we can build a finer future. Wow I really missed out on such a stimulating conversation. Hunter really earns the title Heidel for being Newsweek's green business icon. Well I'm sorry you didn't get too involved in that. I do think very highly of hunter I will admit I don't know whether you you could tell from the interview but I'm not one hundred percent in lockstep with her. I think the gist of the book is that we aren't doomed. And the things we need need to do to get our system tuned up and back in sustainable balance with nature are actually profitable and I would expect that kind of message from hunter because she spends almost lost all of her time and energy advising top management of big companies so that keeps her nonprofit going and it also is really doing a good service. I mean we really really do. Need the big companies of the world to be rethinking. Their bottom line rethinking their goals and trying to find the cure for growth addiction trying trying to operate with more sustainable moral code and a little bit less of a profit maximization code so that's a good thing in hunters found a way to speak their language. Yeah and she says that we are already in the process of seeing a one eighty global shift in our energy the an economic infrastructures. And she points that. This isn't because people are interested in saving the polar bears or saving our environment necessarily. But it's really more about being better business and that makes sense because she's speaking to people who live and breathe Steve Economics and business and all things that I do not projections about the complete. Dissolution of nonrenewable by by twenty thirty. Sounds a little bit like Andrew McAfee and what he says about how eventually in developing nations will be demanding more technology and that we're going to willingly provide access to these technologies because we want to see them become richer and in a sense I would like to see an end to mass human suffering but the amount of power needed to make a significant impact is immense and and I think that ultimately it comes down to one thing significant cultural and shifts well. I'm glad you brought that up because we definitely need those. I do not think that we can make the move to sustainable human civilization simply by doing a good business. We're going to have to really rethink things. And we've got a definitley rethink our whole approach to the economy. If we stay addicted to robust economic growth will never be able to get the infrastructure in place to provide renewable energy to power just like you said to power that huge economy and a continually growing economy. Plus we're not going to solve all the other sustainability challenges she's not just climate change shifting to renewables and finer future really is all about reducing carbon emissions and that's certainly important but shifting to renewables doesn't do anything for us in terms of depletion of fertile soils to certification the the fact that we're pumping major rivers and offers dry and driving other species off the planet. Those things will require us to do something else and that is is really get serious about addressing the problem we have with the just the sheer scale of the human enterprise which is both our economy and our population relation right while said we can have all of these new policies and new technologies to solve the problems. We have today but we're bound to repeat history if we don't take responsibility for the way that we're living this means a reexamination of our definition of success. What it means to lead a meaningful life ideas about family size and thinking more about where and how we are investing our money? Yeah yeah good point. Good that she is speaking the language of people who are pulling really big levers and hopefully moving them in the right direction but there's a lot of work to be done and I was curious about what you thought when hunter and I did talk a little bit about population and she seemed to feel like if we can get zero zero population growth in that solves the population side of the equation. Yeah you know I agreed with a lot of what hunter had to say about without giving women the freedom to choose what to do with their bodies. I am and have been for a very long time in advocate for women's reproductive rights. Hi and I really liked that she. Also referenced Dr Malcolm Potts at UC Berkeley who has made some really positive contributions as the former armor chair of the Bixby Center for Population Health and sustainability. They're dedicated to research aimed at achieving slower population growth and and addressing. The unmet need for family planning in some of the world's poorest nations so just knowing Dr Potts's work I agree with everything she had to say about from his five ways to achieve Z.. PG We can agree on that but it's also a downstream solution. We really need to define what it means to be a family today. I sound like a broken record but I don't think that we can achieve zero population. Any demographer will tell you that it's never stable. It's constantly fluctuating. And the reason it fluctuates is because people change every single day and I want to see some bigger changes some bigger cultural shifts when it comes to establishing bonds and what it means to bring life into the world. I don't want to continue to see. This marriage equals two point five children white picket fence living the good life. The idea continue to exist. Because that's just not sustainable all important points but what you've left unsaid. Tell me if you disagree but I'd be shocked. D- Did Bain hang up with that. Is that just ending. Population growth doesn't solve the problem. When you are way overpopulated so here we are? It was seven point seven billion people on the planet. There is no way the entire population of the earth is going to be willing to live simply enough that seven point seven billion. Some people aren't destroying our life supporting ecosystems so our population has got to contract back to a lower level that will match up in some kind of sustainable balance with a decent life that everybody's entitled to love the Best Science that we have on that is we're looking at a target of two billion people are probably under three billion anyway so Z.. PG's zero population growth that basically kinda freezes us even if we're fluctuating a little bit plus or minus if we're hovering around seven point seven billion. We're pretty well sunk. We need to get back down to two or three billion people and then fluctuate a little bit around that. Yeah Yeah and she also didn't make the distinction between national population growth versus global population growth. I mean we're already seeing breath declines in a number of countries around the world. But that's still not enough you and I would say that's a good thing. That's a positive thing that people are having less babies but that's only in a number of countries that it needs to be lower even in the countries where we're making progress. We can't say mission accomplished because when you're a seven point seven billion and your planet is crumbling ambling beneath your feet we need let our population shrank as fast as possible. So we got work to do whether you're living in a country where the fertility facility rate is one and a half or living in a country where the fertility rate is five. You got work to do either way right. I do want to make a note. I know hundred mention the fracking ballot initiative in the November election. And because here we are sharing this interview interview after November of two thousand nineteen people might think she's talking about something that was in November two thousand nineteen election and because we recorded the conversation last a strawberry. She was talking about the November. Two thousand eighteen election. Just for clarification for that. Well I'll just say one last thing about Hunter Levin's very smart lady and she's got a mind like a file cabinet. She's got a good grasp of a lot of facts that all support very well the points that she's trying to make which are good points. Yeah She's really a pleasure to listen to and I hope to have her. You're on the show again. I you want to go ahead and share a video I came across it is tidal Greta. Thunberg and George Monte hot make short it film on the climate crisis. This.

"We tapped into our own child like energy when we greeted. Amy Amy. Yes it's Benny Ben. Johnson Ameri hi how are you. I'm well how are you guys. Pretty good. Good Gamey was well hungry. I'm sorry you haven't had lunch yet. That sounds rough. Oh no no. That's okay maybe maybe if you had progeny they would have served you you some lunch by now right. I know one of many reasons. I made such a huge mistake. Amy Blackstone is a sociology professor at the University of Maine. And she's child free but that's not how she thought things would turn out if you asked me. I had a plan when I was ten or eleven. I knew that I was going to start having children when I was twenty. Honey I would have to kids boy and a girl and I would be the cool mom who pick my kids up at school and you know showed up with Capri Suns and in my leg. warmers and mini skirt. This was the eighties so I had this real vision fast forward a decade and a half from the kids. Drink era of Capri Sun to the nineteen nineties. Vaca- the brief but glorious rule of the drinks sunny delight. Amy had married her high school sweetheart. She had a PhD fulfilling career and no children yet by the time. I hit my mid thirties and was still answering with the. I'm too young. I'm not interested yet. Maybe maybe later I realized maybe something else is going on. Maybe I don't WanNa have kids and and That was the point at which I really really started thinking more deeply about parenthood as a choice. So Amy did what you might expect doctor of sociology to do. She started looking into the topic. I went to find research to sort of answer. That question of what's wrong with me. Why am I not feeling that maternal instinct and I discovered there was less sociological work on the the experience of being child free and on the process by which people make this this decision than I expected to find? Amy started doing her own research and she and her husband Lance started a blog called. We're not having a baby. Maybe they share research rants means and stories including the one about how they quote came out as child free to Amy's family a a lot of child free people use that expression by the way. Amy Says it's not intended to take away from the LGBTQ experience of coming out it's meant to draw parallels between the ways in which people push back against what mainstream society sees as normal and natural and appropriate for amy her coming out took her by surprise lance and I were happened to be hosting my nephews first year birthday and at his birthday party my sister asked so. When are you gonNA give Joshua cousin and I like I just had this very visceral reaction to that question and you know had been thinking for a while at at this point that I didn't want to be a mother And felt uncomfortable in that place and so when my sister asked question I just blurted out out never and room just sort of went silent. Amy says this was a really really uncomfortable moment and it felt like an outsized reaction but it felt right so it was freeing to declare loudly that she really was not going to have kids. Amy declared her decision even louder this year when she published a book on the topic. It's called child free by choice and probably the first first step in understanding what it means to be child. Free is understanding what the term child free means. I chose to use that term And you know the other term that people talk about his childless voluntarily childless and for many child free people the term childless doesn't accurately or adequately represent their experience. It's putting the emphasis on a thing that we don't have because we've chosen not to have it. Incomplete right right. Opting out of having kids isn't new but the concept of it being a movement or a political choice child free voluntarily childless. Whatever whatever you call it it seems to be growing and the conversation about it in more recent years can probably be traced back to a couple of movements in the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies? I up the second wave feminist movement which is connected to the FDA approving the birth control pill nineteen sixty also roe versus wade which came thirteen years later legalizing abortion. These two landmark events gave people more control than ever before in their decisions about parenthood. We're all better her off. When women have equal access to healthcare to the work place to education when they're able to control and make their own own decisions about their reproductive lives and their bodies next up something called the zero population growth movement focusing on you guessed it our expanding population post baby boom and then the zero population growth movement really raised our awareness about humans impact on the environment particularly in and Western nations with you know different consumption patterns than other nations around the world according to Pew Research Data From Twenty fifteen about fifteen percent of women in the US reached their fortieth birthday without having given birth. But Amy is quick to point out that the data is far from perfect. A woman who doesn't have a child is not necessarily a child free woman I mean we know what proportion of women end their lives without ever having children but we we don't have good data on what right exactly among those women which of them is childless which of them wanted to become parents but didn't or couldn't for any number of reasons and which of them is child free. What demographers do know is that? We're in an extended era of declining fertility rates in this country which is strange because there are more women of childbearing age these days than there were a decade ago. But we don't know how many of the people opting out or delaying. Parenthood are doing so because they're choosing in to be part of this child free movement and so we don't know how big the movement is while you can't currently measure the growth of the entire child free movement. You can measure it on reddit where there's a child free community. That recently has been going gangbusters. Currently we're growing at more than one thousand two hundred subscribers per day. You heard that right and you heard it from Chris. I'm Thirty five year old German guy. On currently in Soochow China why not mom actually one of the moderators of the Chug. Free Form. These days.

"Why you from her? Why have you stopped short of calling Madera Venezuela addicted? I think it's fair to say that the last election was undemocratic. But there are still democratic operations taking place in country. The point is what I'm calling for right now. Is. Intellectually supervised free elections, and I do find it interesting. The Trump is very concerned about what goes on in Venezuela. But what about the last election that took place in Saudi Arabia? All there wasn't any election in Saudi Arabia all women are treated as third class citizens. So I find it interesting that Trump is selective as to where he is concerned about democracy. My records to be concerned about democracy all over the world you so full of crap you not too concerned about democracy in Venezuela. If you just said that there was still democracy happening there. How is that? Yeah. The the problem with these old communists because let's face it. He's gone democratic socialist anything else he wants Bernie Sanders is a comedy. He was a commie as a young man he was a commie in his early political career, and he's a commie now. Okay. So they they couldn't they couldn't force the commie over on the American people in that election. As a matter of fact, the democrat party freaked out at the thought that they would be revealed as the communist Workers Party, so they stole basically at election for Hillary Clinton and just through Bernie on the trash heap of history. But oh, but George Soros looked around the Bernie Sanders campaign. He thought who in that camp? I need a better face. I need someone that we can actually sell to the American public. Hey, wait, who's that? Organizer there in the Bronx said he's got work for that twenty nine year old with all the energy and say, you know, the buck teeth. She might be the one. She just needs a good prostate artists. Really? But let's let's do that Alexandra Cossio Cortez will make her the new face of the communist way of thinking, and we'll ever dress up a whole communist plot except that will use something that young people like climate change. Yes. A new green deal. Oh, this is perfect. And they'd be Bernie just wouldn't stay quiet Bernie had to throw himself into this election. And Bernie exposes what they really are all about. The green new deal. Is it about our climate? It isn't about protecting anyone, and you could see that every time AFC opens up her mouth, right? Because now it's like, well, we shouldn't reproduce. Now. She's gonna tell me I can't have children or my children can't have children or my grandchildren can't have children. And this is a debate that will all be happy. Well, guess what? We've been having this debate for a long long time. Okay. When I was coming up in the sixties, we talked about zero population growth, nobody should reproduce until we get a handle on our environment. Oh boy. But then I grew up AFC not not so much hasn't grown up yet. So she wants the government to tell me what color my roof should be what I should drive or how I shouldn't drive. What I should take transportation. I need a high speed rail. If I want to go visit my grandchildren in California. Let me remind Alexandra oh, Cossio Cortez. When I go to visit my grandchildren in California. I only have a couple of days miss. I don't have time to take across country train. And I'm not getting any bullet train that could explode on impact. Right. So I don't have the time. What I do is get on an airplane and in five hours or and if I'm going to San Francisco and five hours and Forty-five minutes. I arrive on the other coast of the United States of America. I have three or four days that I could spend with my grandkids. And then I get on a plane at eleven or twelve o'clock the night, I'm coming back, and I come back and come to work the next day. That's how real people live. Okay. We don't live like you where we can. Put our boyfriends on the payroll where we can say we're from the Bronx. But we didn't really live in the Bronx where we don't have a place of reverence residents in the very congressional district that we live in and then we get a nice fancy apartment in the navy section. There of the suburbs of Washington DC the navy yard. I mean, really this is this is it. That's what you're following. Ninety four trillion dollars. It'll bankrupt this nation. That's a conservative estimate mind you all right? That is actually a conservative estimate. We're talking about that breaks down to about six hundred thousand dollars per household in the United States..

"Talked about the great calling for sustainable development and a lot of people are for population reduction. But the scary part is sometimes you cannot replace the population. And if you don't replace the population, you lose a lot of vital things, you lose culture. You lose. People who can work you lose architects. You lose great minds because of the fact that we see more and more people that we contribute to the culture dying on. I know a lot of people believe that maybe we'd be a lot better off if we have less people on the planet, and there there's such a thing zero population growth, there's. Is also depopulation. There are certain genders have been put forward by the United Nations to discourage population. I was reading today. The CDC made an announcement that with high mortality rates and low birth rates. The United States can no longer sustain a competitive population. Health statistics are showing the population is in ill health and the facility rate is a thirty year low. And if you want to look up at his the CDC founding, it's national vital statistics report as of two thousand seventeen birth rates have fallen sixteen percent below the level needed for American population replace itself. Now team that up with a high mortality rate. Look at the high mortality rate life expectancy is declining in the United States and also in many high income countries worldwide. New lists have gone out of what's killing people. Well, opioids of course, they're saying that the overdose crisis huge because people are losing contact the they become addicted. There are other things some of the well known. The processes and problems create adult. Premature death rates deaths from flew flew has now become a problem, depression, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, all top killers. All of these things. We we look at dozens of diseases of the heart lung cancer. Lung cancer, heart cancer, sorry. Lung cancer, digestive, cancers, heart problems, heart disease cholesterol. All these problems that are happening. And yet they cannot figure out why. This is I mean, they can figure out the the fertility rate, of course. But they're trying to understand why more and more people in midlife are dying editor Lee ages. And there's plenty of conflicting information about how we can beat the problem.

So there was a group called zero population growth, not one of my favorite outfits. But the point is that was their goal was to have a stable American population. As soon as Americans had fewer kids and getting to that goal of population stability, meant less immigration, the organization had to change its name. They just couldn't they just couldn't do it. It was an important point here. A lot of conservatives don't care about population issues, and frankly. You know, often it's a kind of code word for abortion or something like that. But the fact is Americans have as many kids a few kids want the government's business. None of yours. My business people do whatever they're gonna do. What 'immigration represents is the government engineering population growth artificially, the government saying, you know, you Americans are having left kid, and we the government who were supposed to be your elected representatives. But we think we know better than you. So we're gonna import somebody else to have more kids that's just morally problematic, and it's not like immigrants are all moving to, you know, some unpopulated area in the middle of Nevada. They're moving to the same big cities. Everybody else lives in. That's why you have the issues of congestion and sprawl, you know, Mark Krikorian because of the kind of country we have the most desirable in the world for only four percent of the human population. But about twenty five to twenty seven percent of the economy. We. We have the ability to attract into America, the best and the brightest from South America from Central America from Africa from Asia, we're being attracted I often cite the the the fact that if you're an African immigrant living in America going through the system of immigration, you come here and work with a higher education and with greater ability to earn money and more income than average born Americans and you're from Africa. So it's not about color, if this was a terrible racist place, shall I say persons of color would not be doing everything in their power to come here. So on one hand we encourage or blind turn a blind eye to Guatemalans with a third grade education coming into America, but we look at doctorate candidates from Uganda from Zaire from Kenya. From South Africa. That are Africans that would love to come to America that would enhance America that we've prohibited come in because of the quota system how evil or both of those things. Yeah. I mean, it's it's not a sensible way to run an immigration system in most other countries that are comparable, say, Australia or Canada. They take more immigration based on their population than we do. But what's more important is they run it better. In other words..

"It was a mess. The police at our church is an illegal organization and we can't attend anymore gatherings from now on. Wow. It's one of China's few unofficial house churches left church assemblies at operate without state sanctioned because well they arrest you for doing this. Most of China's Protestant house churches operate underground to avoid attracting official attention and control. But this church openly practised it's faith and they posted their sermons online, and they evangelized on the streets. So yeah, they definitely caught the attention of the government. Yeah. You can't be talking about Jesus in a country where you elect a president for life. Bob FU of China aid, US-based Christian nonprofit organization said the crackdown represents a major escalation of religious persecution in China. And this has been going on for a while. It's not the first there are more than ten thousand cases of detention of Christians this year compared with just over three thousand cases all of last year. So Stephanie escalating in February the religious affairs. Regulation was amended to give grassroots officials more power to act against churches and impose tougher penalties for unauthorized religious gatherings. I mean, really something. And you know, you see them do things like relaxed the restrictions on abortion like forced abortion because you only you were only allowed one child. And now, I think they went to well that was only because they're afraid of zero population growth, they're afraid of negative population growth in China. That's the only reason they did that that wasn't because they're trying to open up freedom to their people. And this is a pretty good indication of that this and what they're doing to the Muslims in China is really important is into this. This is only Wednesday that the China's plan is no longer just the one you said the two, but that's only if one of the parents, I'm sorry. If both of the parents were only children. Weird. That's what was under the new policy. Families could have two children one parent. I'm sorry. If one parent rather than both parents wasn't only child. Okay. So another words if you want more than one child if you want to children you had to be only one of you has to be an only child. Yeah. Okay. Wow. Is that weird? But you know, hey, that's the model.
