The model is based on infinite "growth" for the PROFITS of those at the top, and screw everyone else. There is NO shortage of ANYTHING. All the people in the world, at ten square feet per, could fit into the city of Jacksonville. If everyone got four acres of land, they would still all fit in Texas. Overpopulation is a lie.

You know when America was created the Federal Government gave land away for free to people to live on and make something of themselves on. This practice continued on upon until recently.
The Americans who were passed on this free land are all living like KINGS right now.
While the immigrants who came to America and never got the free land are wishing they never left their home country.
America ceased being prosperous when people didn't have a home....so they could go out and do something productive....get fruits for their labor.
