175. All populations have their limits. We are not exceptional in any regard.
Unless policies across many issues change in a major way, the current problems will not only persist but get much worse. What is troubling and what many of us here sense is that there is not only a willful blindness to addressing these issues, there are powerful forces in place who are now stronger than the voice of the people, stronger than the national interest, who do not want the issues addressed because NOT addressing them makes them wealthier and more powerful. This situation cannot exist much longer, especially with other pressing global situations at play - peak oil, water shortages, wars, among others - without the pain for the average American reaching an intolerable level. I can't tell you what that level is. I can't express it in statistical or economic terms but I know it is out there in our future and I fear that it is not that far away.
