You are so young. In your 40's, but compared to me. I got to live a full life. I don't envy you. It's hard enough growing old. To have to go through what's coming...

Cid,

I’m just a wee bit younger than you but I have similar thoughts. It’s frustrating to not be able to communicate better our future state to my kids. I see them caught in the whole slave wage consummerisim trap. Not unlike I was at their age. If I could communicate better I would urge them to prepare more. I’ll try to leave them something if value, if they can recognize that value.

And what about Dr James Hanson, already a very accomplished scientist in the 80's warning about CC before Congress, Or even before the prestigious limits to growth study of the 70's. And in the 60's Prof. Erlich warning of out of control population. So we had ample sufficient warning. Those in position to understand the full ramifications and who could have communicated it to the masses and marshaled and led an effective response chose to ignore the warnings. Now our species will be reduced to a shadow of its former self if in fact we can avoid extinction. I have come to accept this, the way, I accept my eventual death

I’ve said it before, it all feels like the opening of a bad 1950’s B sci-fi horror flick.

I wish I could provide a link to Star Trek Next Generation: Inner Light Episode. It shows exactly where I am with this. They deserve to have a full life, but they won't, and it's a hard knowledge to possess.

Hi Cid
this film comes to my mind:

Maybe in future the carussell is running in reality.

Logan's Run
************************
I watched it and was afraid that it will come to reality in the future... but must learn that tiny archipels in the pacific had practised exact an equal ritual.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.

There was some dystopian movie back in the '60's, I can't recall the name, but the US passed a law that at age 60, you became ineligible for medication or medical treatment. It was pretty good, but I can't remember what the name was. It may have been a made for TV movie.
