What specifically do you mean? Could you site the constitution or the amendments you feel should be changed/abolished? What would you add perhaps?Wooden shoe wrote:I see the underlying problem as being how the constitution deals with the individual, by giving all the rights to the individual without dealing with society.
Specifics please.Wooden shoe wrote:This along with making governing as difficult as possible, a great deal more so then any other developed nation.

Being off by 3 billion people is a great discrepancy. What makes this data more alarming is that we have already reached the low estimate which means that it will probably be above the higher estimate by 2050. If we don't cause our own extinction before we reach that mark.Then theres all theses charts from the 2010 revision...UN wrote:To hedge its bets, the 2002 Revision includes alternative projection scenarios, particularly high-growth and low-growth scenarios, according to which world population would reach
