Technological progress neutralised the Malthusian warning: “The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man.”

Malthus always gets a mention in talk on population. He didn't know about the tech bros and their space colonisation plans.

I think we need to talk about what constitutes quality of life. I don't need a pet robot when i can't afford a home. I'd rather have a little land than fashion and air fryers. What are we building with all tbis productivity? Computers are awesome but most of what is sold these days seems like waste to me. I save 50% of my income and i can't afford anything but a 2 room shithole.
