I don't expect it, I do hope for it. We have continually shown that
we can. New York city for instance is not a "natural" way for humans to
exist - too dense a population. In ecological terms, each human being
needs about 2 square miles to survive on the resources available.
Human's have chosen to live in larger, less natural social groups as the
food supply permitted, and now humans live in very dense groups
relatively speaking. It's not about complying, it's aboout growing into
the need.

Make sense?
