Will action on overpopulation come fast enough to save democracy?

The urgent and scientifically proven overpopulation concerns of experts can be read about here.

Again as before likely not fully acted upon, but so was US racism for 400 years which is now going to dramatically change.

Reason? Partly demographic in that numbers of educated minorities have created economic incentives to change and big climate effects are now evident.

Example: on racism, taking the MLB all star game out of Atlanta and the giant corporate protests from Cola Cola and Delta Airlines against the new voting rights law Republican Governor just signed!

On overpopulation: Can Attenborough’s film and other notice bring action? Will big corporations see that killing planetary capacity for sustained decent human life is over time very bad for business??

My wife, now a frail 95, now needs nighttime assistance so we have 4 women come at our bedtime. All are African immigrants—2 from Sierra Leone, one from Tanzania, one from Nigeria—they’re not affected about racism as those African Americans born here, as they didn’t grow up where skin color mattered. Now of course aware of our problem and for its abatement!

Point: racism will kill the GOP unless the Trump wing loses. Hence my prediction that the Donald is political history!

Thus we are at a time here and worldwide of ultimate need for urgent actions on human numbers and human freedom.

As my pieces have asked, will democracy win or Chi?

The next decade will be decisive in determining the answer.
