And, unsurprisingly, it's killing them.

Why does it have to be whining? Aren't we friends?

We can have people to design the robots. That is pretty much what engineers do in manufacturing. There are many things that can't be automated. It is still a secondary industry that will bring more jobs into the area.

Wouldn't that mean I'm watching too few movies if I'm not familiar with it then?

There are a lot of good movies out this year, I'm really excited for Dunkirk, Logan and Ghost in the Shell to be honest.

I don't see why people can't just start having babies again. Some people like families and being parents.

But it's not higher-education jobs that you complain about. It's high school diploma level factory jobs. We have so many engineering jobs here and such poor education that we have to bring in engineers from other countries.

Belarus is basically a vassal state of Russia.
I'm not sure what Russia would gain invading.

That's the key word here little, some. Some families having some parents voluntarily won't change a thing in this regard. As long you do not change how we work these days, nothing will change.

On the other hand, why is it so important that a population grows? The world's changing.

It's sending a message that their "allies" shouldn't rebel against their masters.

I am glad you still show you have no idea how Russia thinks or what's actually happening in those Easts. I suppose know thy enemy truly holds no relevance in most of the US, hmm?

Russia just wants to take over all you eastern Euro countries because they're an evil empire. What else could there be to understand?

You're looking at one side of the equation when you focus on automation. You need consumption. You also need a strong young population as the older generation ages. I think Japan can get it together, I dunno if they've fallen as far as Russia to have the government fund boy bands. I bet if anything can stimulate a bit of Japanese nationalism it's China's brazen encroachments. Hopefully they can keep it a healthy nationalism this time.

For this you poison a guy or two, seize a few millions belonging to the President's family for link to "illegal activities" and speak of recovering old debts.

For some reason your post is enticing me to post slightly changed Wannabe lyrics. I'm too lazy to do so, but I really, really want (to).
