That was the last days, in America at least.
The problem is not so much one we can control. The problem is overpopulation. Not a chimp emperor. Not something we can change. We are on an exponential curve that follows the laws of biology. We had the choice, like you said, to behave and realize limits. But we let greed rule. We fight not against rulers, but our own selves.
Of course it's all a perspective. From the first day there was a human, there was a dispute, a loss, a disappointment. And so it's been on and off since that time. And to have been the subject of Vlad The Impaler, that would have been the worst of times. But as a collective group, our best times were just before now. Sure, white, land owning, and male would have been preferred. But now we all fight for the scraps of what is left. There is no gurranteed future, as there always has been. The future is now out of focus.
Most people don't see this. Most people think it's just a character flaw in me. But I know. I am extremely vigilant. I have watched, and my ancesters have watched. There is one thing I am absolutely certain of in this life.
But I think you meant something political. So forgive me.
