  • This is almost exactly what really happened but the only thing that wasn't really accurate was the fact that lapponian never conquered Portugal you tried three times but it couldn't do it so there's only two countries in Europe that you can conquer and that was the British and Portugal

  • We are facing the Earth’s limits, complicating society, our health degradation, need for the global governance & decentralization. The health degradation includes social division, corruption, ochlocracy, or population explosion (“youth bulge"). Formerly, the problems may have been “solved” by selection in disaster, diseases, or war, but it is too risky, costly, even catastrophic now. I hope we can improve not only wealth production & distribution but also people’s ability and its utilization with new techs & policies.
