  • Funny & informative as usual 💖! Ironically, the expansion & collision of nations may have contributed to the sustainability of civilization. Resource depletion or disparity was “externalized” and infirm like me or outdated policies were selected in colonial development or war. However, it is risky, costly, even catastrophic now. I hope we can achieve environmental, economic, social (including human), & political sustainability with new techs & humane policies.
