If you could go forward in time, or live long enough to get to 7/4/2076, what would America look like.

Unless something changes soon, my guess is something between Demolition Man (a happy joy joy place) and Idiocracy.

Give me your predictions.

Yes, Idiocracy will be as prophetic as 1984.

America will be a declining mediocrity of crushing socialism, omipresent gov't workers, watchers, and penalties, a cesspool of inferior third-world subcultures, a non-productive slog of urbanized crime with uncivilized tribes who have enslaved the rest of the country at the hands of autocratic communists.

I'll be 83 and for some reason I just think there won't be as many guns. People will probably be retarded as fuck relying on technology for everything.

Statism will have died a violent death.

The geography of the United States will be somewhat different. But the ideals will survive, in many places. America is not a place, set of documents, or set of systems. It's an idea. It will survive and flourish.

If not extinct by then "Idiocracy II" will apply because the original "Idiocracy" movie already applies.

What is a "state", a "government"? Nothing, just "other people" who wish to be rulers. It will fail. The nightmare of the state will end. It's complex absurdity is comical now.

I think that within the next few decades medical technology will advance so that the average human lifespan in developed nations will well exceed 100.

Indeed.
The third world nut jobs will have over the counter biogenic weapons tech in the next thirty years.

If we are not off this planet in sustainable numbers by then, the human race will go extinct.

Everyone works "chores", ie their career(as chosen by the gov), and all your pay goes directly to the government.

You get a weekly allowance, but only if you do your chores............... or throw a tantrum.

Provided Obama doesn't completely destroy the health care industry and either have the state declare you OBSOLETE! or send you to carousel... you could well live to that age and still be enjoying life.

Again, provided the govt. gets out of the way and medical tech goes back to advancing on its own.

You're likely very right.


If the country doesn't kill itself, it's going to turn into "peace land." The Liberals are murdering conservative values and I see no way to stop them. I'm not admitting defeat but I don't see us coming back.....not anytime soon. They will continue to wipe their asses with the Constitution and guns will become extinct amongst the law abiding public.

We'll also likely turn into Europe where cops are raiding houses over brass knuckles and Swiss Army knives.
