It’s remarkable how REALLY upset many people are about the US election despite the fact that neither candidate discussed or even acknowledged any of the real issues.
Imagine if both candidates acknowledged limits to growth and offered the only two possible paths forward.
Clinton said vote for me and I will put on the brakes so that we drop CO2 emissions and become poorer (hopefully) slowly together, giving us time to adjust and (hopefully) look after the less fortunate.
Trump said vote for me and I will use debt and the military to keep business as usual going as long as possible until we either destroy the money system and crash catastrophically, or we get into a nuclear war fighting over the remaining scraps.
Now that would be an honest election worthy of angst.
