In the not to far distant future.

Cars will be controlled by face and or finger print to start and or enter the car, and to drive it.
Your phone will be used to track your every location.
You and or someone you know will have a tracking device implanted into their skin or body.
In every park, movie theater, mall and public location will be a finger print identification to enter.
Cameras will be in homes, bedrooms and every street corner.

To some of you this sounds scary to some of you this sounds great and makes you feel safe.

I ask this do you believe this will be a forced process or a welcomed one.

I believe children born today and in the last 10 years believe this is normal. They believe this is society as they know it.

Based on cell phone usage, location, facebook and theme park finger printing, TSA and all other forms of travel this will be considered normal.

Cameras in homes will be sold to keep you safe. Just as most packages now with internet and cable companies selling it.

Nobody will have to force you and or anyone to have a camera and or controls, they would be sold to you just like coke products. Humanity will line up, over time the conditioning of these levels.

You will be disarmed and you will be tracked, cash will be gone and all money will be tracked credit. That is the future.

You want to travel, you will need approval, you will have no secrets other then what lies you tell the cameras.

We are the most enslaved "free" people to have ever have existed. "Modern" governments are all designed to brainwash their subjects from birth that their bondage is what makes them "free".

Everything that "modern society" does is to implement widespread violence, aggression, and coercion to continually destroy any element of individual human freedom. Everything is to be regulated by the Almighty State for the benefit of the Omnipotent Money Cartel. Humans are nothing more than chattel on the Plantation of the Central Banking Families. Human freedom is despised as completely inefficient in serving the Money Masters. We have been brainwashed to believe that humans only exist to serve the fictional collective, which really only serves the Oberfuhrers whom owns them.

The travel restrictions are already draconian. I can't imagine "movement" getting more regulated.

Check that...I definitely can.

[SIZE=6]A lot to think about here ...[/SIZE]

[CENTER][CENTER][/CENTER][/CENTER]


[CENTER][CENTER](EVEN IF ONLY HALF OF THIS COMES TRUE, ALL OF OUR[/CENTER][/CENTER]
[CENTER][CENTER]THIRD GENERATION HAD BETTER BE PREPARED)![/CENTER][/CENTER]










In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt.




What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 years, and most people don't see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that three years later you would never take pictures on paper film again?









Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore's Law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became superior and then got mainstream in only a few short years. The same will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.









Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age.









Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years. Uber is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world. Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't own any properties.









ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE:









Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best GO player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected. In the US, young lawyers already don't get jobs. Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain. Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, four time more accurately than human nurses. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.









AUTONOMOUS CARS:









In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don't want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while riding. Our kids will never need to get a driver's licence and will never own a car. This will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking space into parks. 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 100,000 km... with autonomous driving that will drop to one accident in 10 million km. That will save a million lives every year.









Most car companies might become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels. I spoke to engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; they are completely terrified of Tesla.









Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100 times cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.









Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.









Electric cars will become mainstream until 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all cars will be electric. Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can only now see the impact. Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. The price for solar will drop so much that all coal companies will be out of business by 2025.









With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination now only needs 2.0 kWh per cubic meter. We don't have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.









HEALTH:









The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There will be companies who will build a medical device (called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it. It then analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medicine, nearly for free.









3D PRINTING:









The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies started 3D printing shoes. Spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.









At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home. In China, they have already 3D printed a complete 6-story office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that's being produced will be 3D printed.









BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES:









If you think of a niche you want to go in, ask yourself: "in the future, do you think we will have that?" and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner? If it doesn't work with your phone, forget the idea. And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to be a failure in the 21st century.









WORK:









70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a small time.









AGRICULTURE:









There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day in their fields. Aeroponics will need much less water. The first Petri dish that produces veal is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces are used for cows. Imagine if we don't need that space anymore. There are several startup companies which will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labeled as "alternative protein source" (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).









There is an application called "moodies" which can already tell in which mood you are. By 2020 there will be applications that can tell by your facial expressions if you are lying. Imagine a political debate where it will be displayed when they are telling the truth, and when not.









Bitcoin will become mainstream this year and might even become the default reserve currency.









LONGEVITY:









Right now, the average life span increases by three months per year. Four years ago, the life span was 79 years, now it's 80 years. The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be more that one year increase per year. So we all might live for a long long time, probably much more than 100.









EDUCATION:









The cheapest smart phones already cost only $10 in Africa and Asia. By 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smart phone. That means, everyone will have the same access to world class education. Every child can use Khan Academy for everything a child learns at school in First World countries. The software has already been released in Indonesia and will be released in Arabic, Swahili and Chinese this Summer, which will offer enormous potential. The English application will be offered for free, so that children in Africa can become fluent in English in only six months.

I believe TSA will be replaced by robots and or AI type. When you enter the scanner, currently the body scanner type at the airport. it will close around you sealing you inside it. Scan your DNA, finger prints, face, any recently drugs, fluids and any illegal substances in your system. If your on the do not fly list, warrant and or any other government "violations" the doors will seal and keep you contained until they can figure out what to do with you.


That is the future, technology will become people control. But remember if you have nothing to hide step in to that container. Expose yourself and your body to a machine. Let the machine read the results and if you ever face a judge remember that even he/she to might be a robot.

As far as cars go, that to be limited, restricted, how far you drive, how much energy you use, to save humanity "we must use less" the biggest threat to US is the threat to the planet. Remember?
You will have energy credits, to get to work, etc, but it will be restricted. If you pay more you get more all part of the taxable system. If you are poor no worry a credit will be granted as per paid for those who use more. :-) Sound like the future? Or is the future right around the corner.

Because these people think of it in government think groups, ways to "Make America better... to make a difference" Its already in someone's book of designs for people control.

Don't pay your bills? Expect to be turned off like a machine, no credit no ways of paying, violations will be considered terms for credits to be disabled. You can renew your credits at the bank, or your local government human services and credit agency. :-)

Or on your phone/device approved by the government for you to use for communication.
