In the introduction to this program (playing currently):
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b02yjf15

- the intro states that the relationship between postcode lottery far, far outweights the genetic lottery (your genome) in determining how one's life transpires (social mobility).

On Start the Week Stephanie Flanders discusses social mobility. Zadie Smith's novel NW is a portrait of modern urban life in which characters try, but mostly fail, to escape their past. The Conservative Minister David Willetts and the columnist Owen Jones discuss what meritocracy and opportunity mean in today's society. And the social historian David Kynaston looks to the end of the 1950s when meritocracy became the buzz word of the day.Surely it's obvious that a societal infrastructure which prevents meritocracy (requiring equality of opportunity) (the inevitable relationship between economics and wealth condensation ie ensuring inequality of opportunity) - is to blame.

And as for genetics ... ... well - much like air - we need a genome to survive - but no matter your grade of COPD - moving to a cleaner air environment won't particularly help alleviate symptoms.

Gotta' prevent COPD occurring in the first place - by eliminating a societal infrastructure which enforces social hierarchy.

quote occurring occurrently:
"Pretending that we live in a democracy/meritocracy is a way of justifying inequality
- if you're poor - you just haven't tried hard enough."
He's right ... ... worst part though - is that the message from the great schools of philosophy/religion - is to transcend social hierarchy - towards realising a 'flat' structure (or equality) of man.

"For the first time since WWII - the next generation will be poorer than the last"

"And next week we'll be considering expansion of the global population to 10 billion."

"For the first time since WWII - the next generation will be poorer than the last"
The next generation will be poorer because of the pattern of human population growth - reduced population growth - reduced economic growth.

We need to eliminate money - because money cannot work with global population pyramid inversion.

It's obvious - imagine (exaggerating for effect) - that we've 5 billion sick, physically incapable, retired people - being supported by 1 young 'un

- just can't be done.

So - two factors evolution of the population curve from 'exponential' to 'plateau' to 'decrease' occurring simultaneously with reversal of the population pyramid eg:

Japan provides empirical data on what we'll expect elsewhere - and collectively everywhere (in time).

Economic collapse will fire off as soon as exponential growth ends.

At last - the crucial importance of calculus (rate of ...) is revealed.

Yeah, but instead of taking money out of the equation, they would much rather taking people out.

Why do you think every war these days is based on a lie, or started without any justifiable reason?

Population reduction.
