What you worry about truly depends on what you are part of and/or what you do for a living. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately after watching some videos with Elon Musk. He seems rather fixated on an A.I. takeover.
As a tech-illiterate individual this is an interesting worry to hear about, since mine of course differs. I worry about a very ethnomasochistic pop-culture + incompatible parallel societies within Europe (or The West) – resulting in our Nations descending into tribalism and internal national division (rather than having high-trust, civic-minded Nations) – potentially resulting in localised civil-war-ish (or full-blown) tensions/conflicts all around our continent. What bugs me to no end is that we might even get more division between Native European Ethnic groups, as the rise in Nationalism does not necessarily equal a Eurocentric focus. I think this is a shame, not because I support the EU in its current configuration, but because I love the idea of strong sovereign European Nations standing side by side through trade agreements and/or a military alliance. This differs from a Europe where Nations are turned into provinces governed from Brussels, not to forget that we are currently facing a continental threat and a continental problem, due to self-destructive initiatives. The idea of European groups standing together though, celebrating our awesome heritage, is kind of awesome in my opinion. So it will suck if the current “cultural enrichment” fiasco results in complete and total fragmentation, in addition to total, unhinged, racism. Being opposed to replacement migration is one thing, hating on everything and anyone is quite another. If this nightmare becomes a reality then I’ll say that I feel lucky that I grew up in Europe when I did. This worry of mine is not a worry that is properly formulated by government figures though, who are obsessed with conventional warfare and state actors, such as China and/or Russia.
The environmentalists on the other hand see a climate induced apocalypse, and see this as the greatest threat to the planet and all of mankind; whereas establishment celebrities are on a crusade against the Trump administration and the so-called “straight-white-male-patriarchy,” with conservatives jumping off the Trump-train if they disagree with one action by the current U.S. President. You will not get everything on your wish-list fulfilled when you cast your vote for a political candidate, if that was the case you would have to have a King; but you wouldn’t be voting for a King now would you, if the top position in the hierarchy was determined by birth-right! On the other hand there are more radical protesters and movements who denounce the political/governmental infrastructures completely and totally, since they seem to believe that a total “system-reset” is necessary. Out with the old and in with the new.
Not to forget all of the various political denominations within and outside governing bodies pulling in all sorts of different directions without necessarily being “revolutionary,” in addition to religious groups, ethnic groups, private interest groups and whatnot.
It can be tricky to know for sure which worries are the most imminent or legitimate ones. One day I published this entry, for example: The Death Of Privacy & Humanity., only to come across this horrid article some days later, which certainly made me wonder about my previous statements. The number looks obscene. Is this news story really true?
Wow, that's a lot of people. I had no idea. Journalists claim that the UK's commitment to reduce its carbon footprint is to blame, since many #Brits can't afford to heat up their homes 😳 I've been expressing my concern in the past on my #blog regarding #England's lack of preparedness when it comes to #snow 🙄 The supermarkets emptied quickly like they always do, since everything shuts down 🙄 I guess I'm grateful we had our #fireplace re-opened – #norwegians know the importance of a proper fire 😳🙏🏻 I can't believe that many died just because of the cold 😳 #winter #winterinengland #uk #greatbritain #england #livinginengland #deathtoll #godbless #rip #london #climatechange #climate
Then I watched this horror about child abuse in show biz….
….now I’m thinking that maybe this is the best advice…..
