Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

Hello John, hope you are doing well. I'm still studying for the MCAT, and I'm taking it March 14. There are a lot of Chinese students here at Pitt, which concerns me. I haven't seen any of them coughing yet, but we'll see. I don't believe that an Israel-Palestine peace deal is as improbable as you m...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

Happy New Year, John! I wanted to let you know that I'm still reading the forum. Keep up the great work! I've been very busy. I'm taking the MCAT this year and hoping to get a top score. If I want to go to a great med school, I need to score at least 95th percentile. But since I'm Asian, I suspect I...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

John, if you can, I hope you stick around at least until the 2020 election just to see Trump win again. Maybe then you'll be able to go in peace, at least knowing that our govt will be run by someone competent for the next four years. I already can't wait for the election even though it's more than ...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

John, I believe climate change is real. Individual scientists have been wrong in the past, but there has never been the scientific consensus that exists today. The Earth is warming, and humans have a lot to do with it. However, I'm mature enough to understand that most of the "solutions" proposed by...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

I'd like to join one of those groups, but I also need to get into med school, whose admissions boards are VERY liberal. Even if I don't put a conservative club membership on my CV, there would still be a risk that a med school finds out that I'm a conservative. Not worth it! Many profs will be okay ...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

The parents of the young people didn't do their jobs. Here at university, well above 90% of black and Asian students are Democrats. This doesn't surprise me at all; that's how their parents are, generally speaking. But it surprised me that an equal proportion of white students were also Democrats - ...

Re: 24-Dec-18 World View -- Generational Dynamics analysis of the troop withdrawal from Syria

John, that's one of the most brilliant arguments I've ever heard. Is that an original argument that you came up with yourself? There is a tacit understanding among people who've studied history or biology - that disease is one of the natural mechanisms to avoid overpopulation. That's why there was n...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

What's going on in Britain is the most disgusting thing I've ever seen in politics, eclipsing even the worst excesses committed by either US political party. Of course, I was born in 1999 so I missed everything before then. By forcing Boris to take No Deal off the table, it completely undermines his...

Re: Generational Dynamics World View News

I thought Bolton's dismissal was very interesting. It's obvious to me that Trump is NOT an interventionist, at all. But I think he liked to keep Bolton around to show his enemies that he wasn't afraid of intervening if necessary. This would've given him leverage in negotiations with rivals. Otherwis...
