Re: work work

One thing. How do you deal with the families of those who die working AND have the power of the vote? That's always been the problem of just cutting people loose and forcing population control. That goes against human instinct (which was geared more for environments when people tended to die much younger and under rougher conditions) which in turn results in a lot of cheating and distortion (ask China how their population program is turning out--they now have a massive imbalance of the sexes). How do you deal with this problem without making a better human first?
