I think 40 years (two generations) is a minimum that it will take to reverse course and to ensure that we arent going to revert... we will have continuing medical advances and the population will continue to average up in age... whether its a better place or not will be dependent on whether or not we regain our moral compass. Over the short term (10-15 years) we could go road warrior and live like animals if the monetary system collapses.
The productive power of robots is going to turn society on its head, all over the world.
The changes that were wrought by the microcomputer and internet revolutions of the 70s, 80s and 90s will look like a Sunday-school picnic next to what's coming when robot labor becomes ubiquitous.
The left is going to take that power and use it to "liberate" about 99% of society from the need to do any productive work at all.
That situation won't last long, however. Idle hands are the devil's playground, and that aphorism will play out on steroids in the spiritually destitute world of the future.
This is a very good discussion about an important topic.
I am sick of hearing about how the country will not exist in 50 years or that freedom will have been eradicated.
I want to discuss how we are going to prevent that and then what the restored America will look like so that we devote ourselves to realizing that vision, or at least moving us towards achieving it.
Please keep the responses coming.
Given the choice between here and the utter hell liberals will create using just what you described or living on a spacecraft with bad air and water, working hard for that to survive while heading out to who know what in a dangerous universe, I’ll take option two.
Humans aren’t really humans if we don’t struggle.
