    Great show and great truths not discussed in mainstream American media. It is distressing that the “draconian measures” exercised in china to control covid spread at the cost to their great economy is not credited with their priority of national health and is instead attacked. Our ridiculous lock down policy being uncoordinated not only among ourselves but internationally which would require statesmanship and diplomacy is a complete failure and demoralizing.
    As for our diminishing population, it is not just corrupt laws regarding job displacement on foreign soil which does play a part, but as the other commenter (on D@W) here states and is confirmed in University sociology texts, the shifting loyalty of woman from the family to the factory plays a great part. This enabled capitalism to increase a stagnant salary work force and doubled the workforce income tax to our government. God works in mysterious ways and so does Capitalisms. The follow up movement of the 60’s which introduced sweeping legal reforms also created a vicious and corrupt divorce and child custody industry which has been very, very prosperous. As a young thinking man would I want to get a state marriage license when we could live together without offending religious institutions anymore or father a child? Of course this is a show we will never see aired.
