One thing I have found that helps is changing the lens.  On some lenses the game speeds back up.  Not ideal of course, but a bit of a work around.
I want you to panic

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

Is the consensus now that Victoria 3 is a failure as is?

I think it has a very good basis and design ideas, but needs balance, bugfixing, better AI, tweaks and more flavor. I think it's less in a better shape than Imperator at launch but worse than CK3. And despite the issues it is still fun to play around with (though would recommend Anbeeld's AI mod).
If we want to prevent catastrophic economic and societal change we will have to radically change our climate system.

Thanks.  I'll try that.
The future is all around us, waiting, in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born in pain.   -G'Kar

So with diplomacy effectively broken, Paradox have taken it on themselves to... drastically rework the economy, pop investment to be specific.

OPB made a good point that it will probably make reforming fast harder, because if e.g. you start with an agrarian economy, the POPs will put more money into agrarian businesses, which will make it harder to break the power of the landholders.

Also, this is the first diaries of more to come. Wizz has said in other threads that they look at diplo and aim that historical outcomes (Japan, US, Italy etc.) are much more likely to occur.
