    Your narrative seems to be UN static pushed. Why don't you go learn some critical thinking skills & quit vomiting this elitist garbage you're pushing on people.

                        the thing is that so many people are so specialized in some things over others thus trade being nessesary is no shocker however certain indivisuals and groups biggest e.g. being china take advantage of this and it's just sad and confusing the china v. usa but even though i like china prospering the us is at the very least doesn't do deception though thinking this through i believe know that is some sort of karma after all the uk decived china into bankrupcy( though not really ) so i guess china wants to do the same?

                            I'm pretty sure Moscow is the largest city in Europe and that Paris is definitely not second. Otherwise, nice video.

                                        UK's city population, for an old country doesn't follow that distribution. London is 4x the size of #2 Birmingham (not twice), and 5x the size of #3 Manchester, and over 10x all other cities below that. Clusters of similarly sized cities with large gaps between clusters' populations.

                                            Cities are POPULATION OVERSHOOT and cannot produce the air, water, food and energy to sustain themselves, and thus guarantee a mass dieoff by relying on a planet that cannot handle the resource depletion and waste. For example, pristine land is being opened up to mining because some industrialist earns a profit selling gizmos to urban dwellers and thus gets in a fight with farmers (where food is made) or naturalists (where air and water are made) and the miner/driller pollutes the water, destroys the land and destroys their neighbors which degrades the life of urbanites until they too perish. The solution is to literally plug civilization beneath ground, keeping the surface wild as much as possible, green and oxygen producing. Our CO2 global warming problem would be ancient history with the right subterranean cityscapes and zero-emission utilities/transport. No such luck, and all life on Earth will be extinct in well under a decade, perhaps  just a few years. There's a reason riots are popping up all around the world and its either urban dwellers pissed about crappy conditions, crappy food/water/pollution and outrageous housing costs, or farmers/rural dwellers pissed about industrial pollution and land grabbing. And that just about sums up our rise and fall.

                                                    What I find irritating about this is channel is how dictatorially definitive his belief is in his theories. That largest city then half then a third then one fourth theory is absolutely nonsense. Look at the UK, France, Italy and China.

                                                      So your suggesting we give everyone 5 Akers of land so everyone has to be a farmer now? Super misleading statistic. Especially since it doesn’t take account of places people can’t live like all of Antarctica an entire continent or mount Everest.
