White man's burden
« on: August 11, 2017, 12:44:42 PM »
I want to see Germany take 20 million ultra poor immigrants per year for the next 50 years. That is one billion by 2067. Anything less would be racism on the part of the German people.

Ed,
Size matters.....
Germany isn't equipped land wise to accommodate that many people.
I've often suggested to bring poor immigrants out here to the Sonoran or Mohave deserts. 
I would say that racism isn't the issue here.

True. But racism is the issue with most racists, like Edpell, who yammer about the "White Man's burden" (see Orwell) AND are in constant irrational fear, (see: spoiled bigot brats ) of not being able to continue their precious White Privilege exploitation of people of color.

It will be a cold day in Hell before Edpell has anything of value to contribute to human society.

Yeah, right.  ::) I know EXACTLY what growth you wish to limit (see: poor and not-white  ) and what horrendous polluting profit over people and planet GROWTH you have never failed to DEFEND. 

For other readers who can think logically, please view the following graphics. Edpell is allergic to them.

Population is NOT the problem

THIS is how Edpell, the fossil fuel industry, and almost half of the world’s 100 largest companies want that 'Fragmentation of Agency' (to PAY to mitigate Catastrophic climate Change) pie chart  to look like (that is, when he and his fossil fuel worshipping pals can no longer pretend that isn't a "Chinese myth"):


The biosphere math facts clearly state that less than 17% of the human population, MOSTLY concentrated in wealthy countries, is DOING over 80% of the damage by consuming over 80% of the resources. Only about half (or less) of the MILITARY budgets alone of the wealthy countries could pay for bio-remediating the most impacted areas, stop the exploitation and care for and educate the high population growth poor there so they become good stewards instead of biosphere destroyers.

Since, according to the U.N., the richest 20% of the world's population uses 80% of the resources, the 'Fragmentation of Agency' pie chart for the damage done to the biosphere should look like this:

The REAL bottom line is that less than 17% of the human population is an existential threat to the ALL of the human population AND a large part of macroscopic species in the biosphere.





Edpell's world view does not allow him to think logically (see below):

Quote
"Capitalist ideology claims that the world is perfectly ordered and everybody is in their place (i..e. everybody gets what they deserve). This self legitmating aspect of Capitalism is Socially Catastrophic. This is the Victorian view of the world." Rob Urie - Author " Zen Economics"

I favor a decline in human numbers to 8 million world wide. That will require contributions from all nations. As to what it does to profits I do not care.

If that 17% I pointed out to you does not stop degrading our biosphere, within a century there will be less humans (and 90% or more of all other vertebrate species extinct) than that.

When you are in a hole, it is customary to stop digging. You think that the "shovel" is population growth. I KNOW that the "shovel" digging our grave is the burning of fossil fuels and the unrestrained pollution from mining, manufacturing and chemical industry piggery. All that can be done without polluting. But that requires 100% Renewable Energy and a steady state economy that protects the biosphere (IOW, an economy run by governments that respect ALL life including ALL humans in an egalitarian fashion).

THAT economy would destroy the profits of the 1%. Whether you care about that or not, the 75 million or so ONE PERCENTERS out there certainly do care about their ill gotten profits and are presently in the drivers seat.   

You may not wish to connect the dots, but if the 1% finally do not get their head out of their profit over planet worshipping descending colon, they will, along with all the rest of humanity, perish.
