Just a quick item. I just realized that Social Security and Nuclear Fusion powerplants have something in common. Specifically, a Major Event is only ten more years away.
For Nuclear Fusion, it’s ten more years to energy out exceeding energy in (ie, sustaining.) For Social Security, it’s Ten More Years till it pays out more than it takes in (the beginning of bankruptcy). In the latter case, never mind that more has been going in in anticipation of this event, and a number of other issues that aren’t really relevant at this time.
Oh, and by the way, both have been “only ten more years” for close to 40 years now.
