No I’m not talking about raising a uniformed army and rebelling against the British, nor secession nor a civil war. I’m talking about special operations, like anticipated by raising an 8 foot wall around the supreme court building, and warning of violence at abortion clinics. See https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/20/politics/clarence-thomas-john-roberts-supreme-court-roe-wade/index.html

These measures and warnings remind me of the walls around American compounds in Baghdad and Kabul. They are symptoms of insurgency, not civil war.

A crowd of people gather outside the Supreme Court, Monday night, May 2, 2022 in Washington. A draft opinion circulated among Supreme Court justices suggests that earlier this year a majority of them had thrown support behind overturning the 1973 case Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a report published Monday night in Politico. It’s unclear if the draft represents the court’s final word on the matter. The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the authenticity of the draft Politico posted, which if verified marks a shocking revelation of the high court’s secretive deliberation process, particularly before a case is formally decided.

Let’s get straight what’s important – which is illustrated in the last photo “We won’t go back.” I am not here to get an abortion. I’m male and too old for that. Bigger fish are swimming. The issues in order of importance are:

  1. “We hold these truths to be self-evident . . . Governments are instituted . . . from the consent of the governed . . . whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government. . . . laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. . . . when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” – Thomas Jefferson, 1776, Declaration of Independence of the future United States of America.
  2. Supreme Court justices are the highest guard of integrity in our country. Misleading, lying or otherwise manipulating their appointment and confirmation process is a gross violation of integrity and there is no course of action imaginable except their immediate removal. If the votes for impeachment are at hand, then all impeding members of Congress should be expeditiously removed by recall or at the earliest possible election.
  3. Prior to Roe v. Wade, backstreet abortions were a travesty and a plague upon the United States. Almost none of the right-wing Christians now lobbying to end abortion even remember. But I do. The freedom of America is the principle of not telling other people what to do if they are not harming you. You are not called upon to judge others. The Christian bible says: Matthew 7:1 KJVJudge not lest thou be judged!” I judge you now and find you guilty of torture, slavery, misogyny, and crimes against women. The governor of Nebraska said he was going to outlaw abortion even in cases of rape, even from DAY ZERO. This is the grossest crime imaginable. Personality is largely determined by genetics (look it up, there is solid research based on identical twins). Survival of rape fetuses will assure an increase in the population of misogynistic males. God does not step in and overrule natural selection. In fact, God says in Matthew 18:18NIV: “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” So, you are going to allow rape in heaven? Not if I have anything to say about it.
  4. In the short-term population might be 4th priority in this discussion, but in the long term it is the only thing that matters. The population of Earth has increased 4 times since I was born. Frankly, it should have been held to less than half what it was then. I will elaborate below, but first, the Declaration of Independence, or the argument of precedence.

To call Roe v. Wade precedence is misleading. It’s not some legal technicality. Over 50 years it has become to be self-evident, in the language of Jefferson. That is beyond precedence and cannot be overturned by a court. Or by – anything. The people have the right and duty to claim their self-evident rights. This is why Russia is so messed up. The population there has no history of standing up for itself, only of being ruled by despots. The American colonists had a unique history of being in countries where first nobles stood up for themselves (the Knights of the “Round” Table, the Magna Carta), and then ordinary religious folk learned to think for themselves in the Protestant Reformation. Some of those religious groups, unwelcome in Europe, came here – Pilgrims, Puritans, Quakers. It was the Quakers who first petitioned Congress to disallow slavery.

Now a message to non-religious Republicans who take stands against things like illegal immigration, or excessive and frivolous amnesty of masses of people fleeing ordinary criminality, not political persecution. Why do you want to keep out children and adults that are already living, and allow unwanted unborn fetuses of at best dysfunctional relationships and at worst rape, to enter through wombs, which is a kind of border? That’s, well, stupid. I don’t have another name for it. And if you allow them to enter, why do you not support and welcome them lavishly? Why do you vote to cut their benefits, or deny them, while you insist they arrive? Anti-abortion is not a natural Republican issue. Get it out of your platform.

And finally, population. The same people who lobby against abortion generally lobby against sex education and birth control. Don’t believe that? Trump endorsed Michigan state representative candidate Jacey Eubanks said she would vote to make birth control illegal. “Sex ought to be between one man and one woman in the confines of marriage . . . and open to life. Absolutely.

And not only in the U.S., but abroad in every country. U.S. restrictions on abortion in foreign aid result in less birth control and actually more abortions! Here is a map of where population is growing:

Orange countries will double in population by 2050, including Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Sudan.
Blue countries are rapidly declining. Ukraine, Russia, Japan, Portugal are fading from existence.

Just for example, Nigeria has a population of 200 million, 2/3rds of the US, in an area barely larger than Texas. And a quarter of that area is Sarah Desert. Its growth rate is not projected to level off until well after 2100, likely at a population of 2 billion.

In a democratic world order, assuming it comes out that way, these people will rule us. Before you answer, keep in mind Nigeria is mosty Islamic, as are the other orange countries, and most of the tan ones in the Middle East and Africa. I think we can be sure the planet will be placed under Sharia Law. You have Christian motives for not reducing birth rate? So you have Christian motives for assuring Sharia Law in the future. As I said earlier, not as long as I have anything to say about it.

To all those who think it’s so cool that a trick was played and cheaters placed on the Supreme Court so your side could win, think about the consequences of your actions. It doesn’t mean your side wins the long game. It means the Islamists do.

Notice to all. This is my blog. I can say anything I want. I don’t hate anybody. I just look at what they typically do. If you think they would do differently, don’t tell me, show me.

What is the problem with population? I have a friend who thinks 50 billion people would be nice. More brains to drive innovation.

  • Quantum Mechanics (which enables modern electronics), electric power, trains, air travel, Relativity (Einsteins theory of gravity, black holes and all), radio, TV, refrigeration, antibiotics, the theory of computing, and most other modern concept and inventions were accomplished with a world population of about a billion. From my perspective, born in 1950, innovation and meaningful change has slowed dramatically since the early 1960s. A lot of things have backed up since the early 70s. Middle class living standard in the US stagnated and declined.
  • Beach area near Houston has declined by half due to over use, while the population has increased 4 times since I moved here. That’s 8 times density increase. All the sand is so hard packed my kid cannot dig a sand castle in most places. The windsurfing area has been shored up with rocks to prevent more erosion, and I can no longer access the water there. It was one of the best windsurfing locations in the country. Ruined by population.
  • Energy? We will use up all our uranium in 80 years at current rates. Forget nuclear power. Trust me, fusion is still a century or more away. Every tiny improvement is big headlines, but reports are not even counting the energy to run the facility and most produce only a tenth of breakeven power, and only operate for a tiny fraction of a second. Windmills wear out in 20 years and there are already massive graveyards in Montana. Wind is not sustainable. We might have enough materials for solar power, but it is a vast change to the landscape and habitat, and likely would affect climate. More importantly, solar needs massive batteries to operate at night or on cloudy days, and batteries use lithium, nickel and cobalt, which are in short supply even before we start to scale up globally. Keep in mind much of the world still uses less energy per capita than the US and Europe, but wants to catch up. Including those future 2 billion citizens of Nigeria. We have no moral right to tell them no. But we have a moral responsibility to educate them about the consequences of population growth.
  • Conflict? Solid research results show cooperation evolves in small groups, and diminishes in large populations. If you want to know more, write me and I’ll try and dig up some references. One requirement of cooperation is that the parties must not feel they are losing ground in the long run. If one population increases faster than another, or migrates more aggressively, then the other population is losing and will resent it. Whether the growth is a military invasion like Russia taking Ukraine and wiping out its culture, or a legal infusion of a higher growth culture, or political dominance by a large population even if it remains separate, or simple competition for resources, rebalancing power will destroy cooperation, leading first to polarization and then conflict.

So that’s what we have. First polarization. Then one side getting an upper hand, rigging the Supreme Court. Then conflict. Then the self-evident right to abolish an abusive institution and replace it. The 2nd American Revolution.
