    In my short time here I've watched the advancement of technology grow exponentially. It has been incredible to watch. I'm curious what you see evolving in the future. Will it be beneficial or a burden to man and society?

    We need to get serious about addressing climate change or their might not be much future in which to advance technology.

    It will keep advancing (?) developing long enough to automate away 90% of employment.
    Since the governments and corporations lack the foresight and the will to do anything substantial, they'll squawk and whine about the effects. That will lead to the collapse, first of the tax base, then of the consumer base, then of the financial 'industry', then all industry: manufacture, energy, trade, shipping, distribution, retail, regulation - the whole stack of economic dominoes.
    Unless, as James R say, climate change knocks them down first.

    Good Vs Evil ?

    what about women ?

    there will still be future, it just wont include the basic concept of modern civilisation as we know it.
    money will become worthless, but the elitists dont seem to comprehend that.they still think they can buy their way out of it.

    The American honeymoon of the post apocalyptic world is coming true
    why would they try and avoid the apocalypse ?

    They have their fortresses all prepared - high ground, security, solar panels, wine cellar, walled garden - servants.

    I predict all automated highways whereby the police will have the only manual cars that can exceed the speed limits.
