In the year 2030

Postby Gloominary » Wed Nov 25, 2020 8:30 pm

This thread is for info about where the elite may be trying to take us by the year 2030 and beyond.

Here's how life could change in my city by the year 2030

Author's note: Some people have read this blog as my utopia or dream of the future. It is not. It is a scenario showing where we could be heading - for better and for worse. I wrote this piece to start a discussion about some of the pros and cons of the current technological development. When we are dealing with the future, it is not enough to work with reports. We should start discussions in many new ways. This is the intention with this piece.

Welcome to the year 2030. Welcome to my city - or should I say, "our city". I don't own anything. I don't own a car. I don't own a house. I don't own any appliances or any clothes.

It might seem odd to you, but it makes perfect sense for us in this city. Everything you considered a product, has now become a service. We have access to transportation, accommodation, food and all the things we need in our daily lives. One by one all these things became free, so it ended up not making sense for us to own much.

First communication became digitized and free to everyone. Then, when clean energy became free, things started to move quickly. Transportation dropped dramatically in price. It made no sense for us to own cars anymore, because we could call a driverless vehicle or a flying car for longer journeys within minutes. We started transporting ourselves in a much more organized and coordinated way when public transport became easier, quicker and more convenient than the car. Now I can hardly believe that we accepted congestion and traffic jams, not to mention the air pollution from combustion engines. What were we thinking?

Sometimes I use my bike when I go to see some of my friends. I enjoy the exercise and the ride. It kind of gets the soul to come along on the journey. Funny how some things seem never seem to lose their excitement: walking, biking, cooking, drawing and growing plants. It makes perfect sense and reminds us of how our culture emerged out of a close relationship with nature.

"Environmental problems seem far away"
In our city we don't pay any rent, because someone else is using our free space whenever we do not need it. My living room is used for business meetings when I am not there.

Once in awhile, I will choose to cook for myself. It is easy - the necessary kitchen equipment is delivered at my door within minutes. Since transport became free, we stopped having all those things stuffed into our home. Why keep a pasta-maker and a crepe cooker crammed into our cupboards? We can just order them when we need them.

This also made the breakthrough of the circular economy easier. When products are turned into services, no one has an interest in things with a short life span. Everything is designed for durability, repairability and recyclability. The materials are flowing more quickly in our economy and can be transformed to new products pretty easily. Environmental problems seem far away, since we only use clean energy and clean production methods. The air is clean, the water is clean and nobody would dare to touch the protected areas of nature because they constitute such value to our well being. In the cities we have plenty of green space and plants and trees all over. I still do not understand why in the past we filled all free spots in the city with concrete.

The death of shopping
Shopping? I can't really remember what that is. For most of us, it has been turned into choosing things to use. Sometimes I find this fun, and sometimes I just want the algorithm to do it for me. It knows my taste better than I do by now.

When AI and robots took over so much of our work, we suddenly had time to eat well, sleep well and spend time with other people. The concept of rush hour makes no sense anymore, since the work that we do can be done at any time. I don't really know if I would call it work anymore. It is more like thinking-time, creation-time and development-time.

For a while, everything was turned into entertainment and people did not want to bother themselves with difficult issues. It was only at the last minute that we found out how to use all these new technologies for better purposes than just killing time.

"They live different kinds of lives outside of the city"
My biggest concern is all the people who do not live in our city. Those we lost on the way. Those who decided that it became too much, all this technology. Those who felt obsolete and useless when robots and AI took over big parts of our jobs. Those who got upset with the political system and turned against it. They live different kind of lives outside of the city. Some have formed little self-supplying communities. Others just stayed in the empty and abandoned houses in small 19th century villages.

Once in awhile I get annoyed about the fact that I have no real privacy. No where I can go and not be registered. I know that, somewhere, everything I do, think and dream of is recorded. I just hope that nobody will use it against me.

All in all, it is a good life. Much better than the path we were on, where it became so clear that we could not continue with the same model of growth. We had all these terrible things happening: lifestyle diseases, climate change, the refugee crisis, environmental degradation, completely congested cities, water pollution, air pollution, social unrest and unemployment. We lost way too many people before we realised that we could do things differently.

Over the last several decades, far leftists managed to get the public so worked up about the far right (a term that has lost all meaning from misuse), hardly anyone noticed them gradually taking over academia, the MSM, banks like Bank of America, megacorporations like Walmart (Bank of America alone donated over a billion dollars to Marxist terrorists BLM and I suspect they donated over a billion to Marxist terrorists Antifa too) and international organizations like the CDC, the WHO and the World Economic Forum.
Clearly at least many, if not all the people who work at these international organizations are Marxists, just like many of those who work at universities and in the MSM.
These organizations are far, far to the authoritarian left of the general public, which must wake up to this threat if we wish to avert it.

Covid-1984 is the perfect trojan horse.
If sociologists, politicians, economists or environmentalists told everyone to surrender all their freedoms at once for the greater good, few would go along with them, but if a medical expert tells them?
They'll buy it hook, line and sinker, and they did.
Within this trojan horse lies everything else the totalitarian left has wanted to accomplish for decades: communism, globalism, scientism, technocracy, the green new deal, Malthusianism and transhumanism.

Now don't get me wrong, unlike some here, I'm not anti-left.
There are decent, moderate leftists, but unfortunately most of them and even many conservatives have been bamboozled by Covid-1984.
If we don't reign them in now, it may take us centuries to get back the freedoms we're about to lose, that is if we ever get them back.

Gloom, you better get involved in Canadian government because your country is already farther down the freakin rabbit hole with your loss of free speech.

If anybody believes they idly sit by at this point, and it will all magically "get better", you are gravely mistaken.

Conservatives and libertarians have a weakness, and it's not communism, globalism, progressive identity politics and so on, they understand the dangers of these things to some extent.
Their weakness is technocracy.
The vast majority of them are powerless, hapless and helpless before medical experts

What happened to the free market?
Is it not the free market who decides who the experts are?
Not corrupt politicians with an agenda?

And make no mistake, these medical experts are doing politics.
The moment you start telling people what to do you step out of the realm of pure science into the realm of politics, where unscientific or not strictly scientific things like politics itself, economics, happiness, psychology, values and so on must be considered.
Birx and Fauci in the US and Teresa Tam and Bonnie Henry in Canada are not strictly doctors and scientists, they're politicians, and they deserves the exact same level of scrutiny.

Technocracy, especially its medical wing, is the biggest threat to our freedom and democracy by far.
They couldn't accomplish 1 10th of what they've accomplished with Covid with climate change theory.

Is it ironic that Covid came out of a Wuhan Lab in the heart of the CCP?

No, nor is it a coincidence.

I tend to think it doesn't even exist, because people from all walks of life, including doctors and scientists have told us the tests are wildly inconsistent, but if it does exist, it probably came from that lab in communist China, which's working with the globalists to globalize and communize us.
They want a national communism for China, Zionism for Zion and global communism for the rest of the world, particularly the west.

I guess it may have been unintentional, but once people reacted with fear, and showed how vulnerable, mentally and spiritually weak Western Civilization has become, the predators pounced on this, once they smelled and tasted the blood. Now the weakness and rot is uncovered, and few people have yet to wake up. It maybe too late, in many ways. This is why I've called for retreat to fortified positions. The West has grown very weak due to its decadence since the 1970s. That is far too long to grow soft and fat.

The West needs to practice Lent and go back to practicing Fasting, willing starvation.

It seems to me that COVID was the promised "October surprise". Xi Jinping had a meeting with Kin Jong Un after Mr Trump's vist to North Korea. Mr Trump had put pressure on Kim Jong Un but after that meeting in China (a very unusual occurrence) Kim Jong Un's attitude changed and he smiled spoke of an October surprise.

Apparently the virus was released in October 2019. But the better strategy was to not tell anyone until the virus spread as far as possible without notice. China immediately locked the rest of China away from Wuhan while still claiming that there was no human-human spread.

I don't think there can be much question that the COVID attack was intentional and planned years in advance. They had been working on that particular virus for at least two years while hording all medical minerals. There is testimony from one Hong Kong viral researcher that the virus was certainly created years earlier because she was working with it herself.

And all of this fits exactly with James' essentials for ultimate power. He stated more than two years ago, "the medical world is your enemy". The CCP has proudly stated that they goal is to be the ultimate superpower in the world and they have used all of their resources (mostly coming from the US) toward that goal - militarily, medically, and with subtle propaganda (again James' 3 essentials). Was James telling China? Was China telling James? Or was James telling the West to wake up? He certainly was concerning the philosophy of Science.

If you question whether it was intentional, you just haven't studied it and connected the dots.

When intelligent and ambitious people sit in backyards this big and think, it's difficult to avoid having thoughts of world domination cross your mind now and then. Hell I get that feeling just sitting on the back deck. I cant imagine the struggle mao had with it.

An old idea from a journal i kept while on the long march with mao. I was a student of anthropology then and I had an insight into what might be the cause of the natural collective behavior of the people. I thought at the time that because they looked so similar to each other, the kind of sense of individuality people from races that are physically varied much more, had, would never develop. This is the strongest of the bases of the feeling of nationalism. That feeling of likeness-to-the-other.

That being the case, the competitive, aggressive, imperial side of the ego did not exercise its power in conflict and confrontation with others in the immediate group.... only little in-nation factions would evolve and split, with the racial identity and the collective sense still strong. This is why Japanese and Chinese got beef with each other, but fully comprehend and understand their mutual instinctual feeling of being exclusively Asian and having much pride in this racial identity... not to be mistaken for European or caucasian.

In order to express the more masculine, domineering part of the soul, asians had to find an enemy. That enemy is now the Europeans cuz they're the only ones who can fuck with em. Ermericans too, who are European more or less.

Also, the napoleon complex is very strong here. You think I'm kidding. Short people exist underneath other people all their lives and this works directly on your psyche. There's a certain part of you that is never relaxed and always trying to assert itself. But this can be a good thing, as we've observed in the short asian people.

You must see through the web of lies that the jedi have established.
Master Mao will abuse the force and corrupt the new comers.
If China continues on its course, eventually there will be no more evil [capitalism] left in the world.
We will have a paradise. Authority is a good thing. You can trust the revolutionary parties.
No matter how many people die, it is because of class struggle.
Keep on fighting. This is not propaganda.

Here's the thing though. Marxist thought is such a gargantuan undertaking that it is going to be bound by history to fail several times over before it's ever gotten right. What we'll go through is about four of five hundred years of experimental attempts at it by various folks... which will then dreadfully fail... meanwhile we have to deal with the no scotsman fallacy to keep the yapping right wingers off our leg. It really is legit exhausting and just one of those things you gotta wait out and hunker on down.

Look what Adolf did in a hand full of years.

Things can change quickly sometimes.

I don't think Marxism is some kind of massive thing that is hard to get right.

Big bearded bozo talkin shit about class systems.
:lol:
But seriously, learning to program is much harder than learning Marxism.

Well the world may never see it in it's pure theoretical form. We might end up at a situation where health care is significantly less expensive, wages are raised by mandate, rent caps are put in place, and corporate participation in shareholding and stocks and shit is expanded to every employee... no matter their field.

On the real though, private business may never go extinct. Democratic socialism might be as far as she goes, boys.

That seems to be one of the highest hanging potential fruits of the tree.
I'm not sure if anyone could top democratic socialism in their eutopian goals.

I was a student of anthropology then and I had an insight into what might be the cause of the natural collective behavior of the people. I thought at the time that because they looked so similar to each other, the kind of sense of individuality people from races that are physically varied much more, had, would never develop. This is the strongest of the bases of the feeling of nationalism. That feeling of likeness-to-the-other.

That being the case, the competitive, aggressive, imperial side of the ego did not exercise its power in conflict and confrontation with others in the immediate group.... only little in-nation factions would evolve and split, with the racial identity and the collective sense still strong. This is why Japanese and Chinese got beef with each other, but fully comprehend and understand their mutual instinctual feeling of being exclusively Asian and having much pride in this racial identity... not to be mistaken for European or caucasian.

In order to express the more masculine, domineering part of the soul, asians had to find an enemy. That enemy is now the Europeans cuz they're the only ones who can fuck with em. Ermericans too, who are European more or less.

Also, the napoleon complex is very strong here. You think I'm kidding. Short people exist underneath other people all their lives and this works directly on your psyche. There's a certain part of you that is never relaxed and always trying to assert itself. But this can be a good thing, as we've observed in the short asian people.

You're wrong, historically.

Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese have always been xenophobic Isolationists. It was only ever the Siberian Mongolians who conquered foreign nations, and that was explicitly because of their regressive, tribal nature, more base and less civilized, along with being horse-riders.

The Chinese are distinctly different.


This only proves that you lack the nuance and insight to anticipate what is to come from the CCP.

What we'll go through is about four of five hundred years of experimental attempts at it by various folks... which will then dreadfully fail... meanwhile we have to deal with the no scotsman fallacy to keep the yapping right wingers off our leg.

You just admitted it yourself. You're a racial outsider. They will throw you in a work-camp in Siberia if you ever fall under their jurisdiction.

You wouldn't last a day where real work is involved.

You're probably right. They've probably got huge rock quarries stashed in Siberia or something where we'll all be sent to. I dont see any reason why they wouldnt. I mean a normal society of 9 to 5 working ordinary people has got to be a terrible danger. Better to herd them all together in labor camps. Duddint matter that in the 21rst century there's no need to labor like that. They'll just have us move rocks back and forth all day or something because that makes so much sense.

I need to seriously reconsider my loyalties here. You've helped me today, ur.
