    There is a solution that could work well: stop having humans exist... at least new ones. (VHEMT: "may we live long and die out"; me: suffice it to say I hope for a _voluntary_ mass reduction in human population sometime relatively soon, because I believe an _involuntary_ one is likely around the corner. (And no, Covid isn't it. Think bigger.))

    Sorry to tell you this, but humans are fucked, and we did it to ourselves. The majority of humans, and the First World government don't give a fuck about nature, over-population, or climate change,. First nations don't give a crap, ignore the problems, and continue the destruction to get richer. Second and Third world countries don't care because all they care about the problems and only care about feeding there over-population, and raping the earth to get money to modernize.

    One really plausible solution to this problem is to educate and encourage all people to start gardening, permaculture, animal husbandry, and agroforestry in their own backyards, apartment complexes, high rise buildings, & city parks. Also to figure out a way to encourage / incentivize all the small family farms to go back into small scale production again. When a family raises animals that have names, and plant trees for generational production, the quality of food improves. If huge numbers of people dropped out of the industrial agriculture system, the compounding and cascading impacts would be amazing (climate change, health, economy, community resilience, & unwasted recourses.

    Any government that uses coercive measures to enforce the use of a medical drug on the Population Is Committing A Crime Against Humanity.... Jacob Rothschild Lifts the Veil By Henry Makow, Ph.D. “It has been mainly the economic independence of most of the common people which makes them so unruly in these nations, and likely apt to support the sovereignty of their own nations and local control, which is the main obstacle to our plans, and precisely why the severe economic restraints have been necessary under the guise of the pandemic. If the people do not comply, undoubtedly a second wave will come their way, and with that food shortage, and complete government domination in order to usher in all of our proposed changes.”

    Surprised to see factory farming mentioned, yet not the fact that the last big pandemic, before COVID-19, came out of a US-owned and run pig-factory farm in Mexico back in 2009. For 19 months the H1N1 virus ravaged, which was the second time it did that after also being responsible for the "Spanish flu" pandemic that originally also emerged out of the US in the early 19th century. Keep history like that in mind the next time somebody demands individual countries should be held responsible for diseases allegedly emerging inside their borders: Biology, wild animals, and most of all human greed do not care about national borders.

About driving out predators and creating asylium for rodents .... well, more and more prevalent wind farms do that, but that's "right wing science" ;) talking about exotic pets and not mentioning Florida and burmese pythons.... in any case: solution is not luddism, but return to science, supervision, top notch medicine applied for something more meaningful than breast enhancement.

    Moving to vertical farming, fully plant based diets, and eliminating animal agriculture, then rewilding all the land that was being used for animal and animal feed. Those actions alone will significantly improve public health, greatly reduce the chance of pandemics, improve the health of our ecosystems, reduce our resource usage (primarily water), and significantly reduce our carbon footprint.

    Look i may be an Anglophile and there are things i would have liked to do to you if you were polygamous, but i'm getting sick and tired of your ambivalent approach towards constitutionalised animal exploitation. i do understand banning stuff encourages black markets, but black markets can have positive side effects like Jazz and Lindy hop. This ambivalence is mainly disappointing because i am under the impression that it is caution against alienating your broader audience, even more so as i have to endure my brother(and anyone)s pseudo lachanophobia. i wish you would just go vegan! P.s. Do not mock the i of humility, it is intentional.

    You must be a moron from the early 1400s. Our immune system is cool, but it is not even close to 100% effective, it does not matter how strong your immune system is, there are viruses out there that WILL kill you, many of which are in animals and can transfer to humans. Luckily, over the last 621 years that you missed, we have greatly improved our scientific knowledge and are now capable of taking steps to counter these viruses, including masks, vaccines, sanitation practices, contract prevention, and others. Please join us in 2021, and stop living in the 1400s.
