The 2020 census shows that America isn’t full — and that it needs immigrants.
Well, this isn't going to go well. I'm not a complete isolationist, but I feel like this is only needed if we want to continue to feed the machine as it currently exists today. We're pretty good at seeing problems decades ahead and then not doing a damn thing about it because we insist on keeping the current systems in place.
I don't know what an alternative solution to an aging population might be, but it seems the only solution being offered is toss more younger people into the mix. It reminds me of "It's too expensive" as a default deflection to a lot of solutions to major problems. Money is a completely manmade concept. It's not a finite resource. It's a ridiculous excuse to obstruct desperately needed advancement. In that same vein start thinking about how to care for an aging population that allows for the possibility (likelihood) of low population growth.
