It should be a ever shrinking game. With India, China, Pakistan all sharing the means for a nuclear war. then we include geopolitics, water, groundwater, topsoil, natural resources as rare earths, etc etc.
The real point of over populations solving themselves is about what it will do to what's left, of our assets, while it 'solve itself'. Ignoring all types of emphatic responses for it, or denials. We can already see it played out today, denials of what's happening around us.
Although, neither Alan nor me will see any of our ideas used. I sincerely doubt there being enough time for any of them. What we still can do though is to ban fossils, and take the consequences from it, as good as we can.
Collin, you're telling me you can't see a fractal behavior in how a direct voting will work? You can scale it up and down, and it will behave, and look, the same. That's fractal enough to satisfy the use of 'fractal' for me.
Still, I think we're going to war, This Russia Ukraine war just being one example of it. It's about resources, your assets, and what you will do once they disappear. We need a consensus, and a change of this game, before anything can be done, but we don't get it. What we get instead is waiting, until it knock on ones own door. And as as I've said for a very long time in this essay, by then it will be all too late.
" The teams projections for future TWS under a moderate carbon emissions scenario specifically, the mid-range SSP2-4.5 emissions scenario suggest that the entire Tibetan Plateau could experience a net loss of about 230 gigatons by the mid-21st century (2031 to 2060) relative to an early 21st century (2002 to 2030) baseline.
More specifically, excess water loss projections for the Amu Darya basin which supplies water to central Asia and Afghanistan and the Indus basin which supplies water to Northern India, Kashmir and Pakistan indicate a decline of 119% and 79% in water-supply capacity, respectively.
Our study provides insights into hydrologic processes affecting high-mountain freshwater supplies that serve large downstream Asian populations, said Long. By examining the interactions between climate change and the TWS in the historical period and future by 2060, this study serves as a basis to guide future research and the management by governments and institutions of improved adaptation strategies.

As for if it would be a 'fractal democracy', this one I prefer.
" The next fern you encounter will provide a great illustration of these features if you pause for a closer look. First, notice that the shape of the fern is intricately detailed. Remarkably, you can see that the leaves are shaped like little copies of the branches.
In fact, the entire fern is mostly built up from the same basic shape repeated over and over again at ever smaller scales. Most astonishing of all, fractal mathematics reveals that this humble fern leaf is neither a one- nor an two-dimensional shape, but hovers somewhere in-between."
Yes, I expect it to work so. It would have the same structure no matter if it was a parish voting, or a nation. It's scale able.
