Writing appears on the wall:
A.I. machines will take away many more jobs.
As jobs vanish, sense of material entitlement based merely on existing will increase.
Genetic load and susceptibility to cataclysms will increase.
Dependence on centralizing mechanisms will increase.
National boundaries will be less recognized.
Loyalty to nations will diminish.
Whether by government or business, people will be more hierarchically organized and dependent and will become less expressive of individual (human) freedom.
Work and activities will be much more monitored by high technology.
Individual freedom will be more constrained.
Science for inducing control over mindsets via pleasure-distractions will flourish.
Politically induced right-think will be more enforced between competing demagogues.
Competition among demagogues will increase.
Old measures will less surely provide solutions.
Fallout will lead to increased factoring of environmental limits.
Literalisms of religions will be more discredited.
Purposefulness will be mocked.
Human freedom and dignity will be devalued.
The spirit of Will will be largely replaced by addictions, despair, and micro management.
Meaningfulness will tend to draw expresson only from those who empathetically intuit that something of the Cosmos is author of their persons and identities.
Spiritualists will tend more so than materialists to want to survive.
If these are the shadows of things that must be, then perhaps the meek will inherit the ant-pile, after all.
