...a Black Death scenario would disproportionally effect people in countries with poor and inefficient health services.
That too has an upside. We members of affluent societies could no longer rely on products like our clothing and digital gadgets being manufactured by people who are paid 60 cents an hour. Foxconn, just one of many major contractors to Apple Corp. and other brands currently employs over 800,000 such workers. If a sudden 30 to 60% reduction in the global population affects countries with poor and inefficient health services disproportionally, it would destroy the business model of all companies who benefit from such exploitation, and we will be forced to pay a fairer rate to the workers who survive. What's not to like?
Yeah, I can see how being dead definitely stops you being exploited.
I had not thought of that, nor would have that been - as you pretend not to have noticed - my point if I had, but now that you mention it, that's another upside of a sudden, massive reduction of the global population: fewer people are exploited. :mrgreen:

Extiction Rebellion were making a nuisance of themselves in Dublin today. Lots of people not happy, but I support them.

They look like an interesting way to raise awareness. Were they blocking traffic or something?

Pretty much. They sit down in the road, sometimes glue themselves down, or chain themselves to stuff. Here's some terrorists hell bent on destroying our way of life...
