water set to become source of global conflict

is it necessarily negative that water shortages will reduce the size of many backwards societies

in other words, should die-offs be allowed in light of this news

given that the CIA has taken note of an impending water crisis, this issue will most likely affect the US in some way or another. how will it affect US foreign policy

I think it's a matter of how you define "backwards" ;).

Surely water shortage will fuel a number of "conflicts" yet.

societies where things like patriarchy and superstition are prevalent, where individual freedom is suppressed needlessly, etc. you know the ones that should have died out a long time ago

"Vem är du?"
"Jag är Döden."
