Pandemics, Depressions and Earthquakes

Question? What are things that happen every hundred years or so. Pretty soon Nancy Pelosi’s hometown San Francisco will be facing all three. Will see how well prepared they are but I will say that given the size of the population of California they have done a relatively better job of dealing with the Coronavirus, as compared to New York.

When you also factor in Climate Change, A.I., and the emergence of China our kids and grandkid are facing several extremely challenging environments. Because democracies are dominated by small picture, short term, tactical doers (as opposed to big picture, long term, strategic thinkers) this level of disruption could very likely overwhelm the democratic process in the West.

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
