Dear God these people are stupid:
It’s running out of some of the things that we depend on, like tantalum in mobile phones or iridium in GPS devices and things like that.
No, really, the man knows not whereof he speaks. Iridium is a brand name for GPS systems, yes it is. But this is because the original design was to have 77 satellites and iridium, the metal, is element 77. There’s no actual iridium, the metal, used in Iridium, the GPS system.
We’re getting into real loons on the loose territory here if people are building their desired world governance systems out of such misunderstandings of reality.
