    What Will America Be Like In 100 Years?

    I predict a return to an agrarian society (agricultural). Much like that of Cuba after the fall of the Soviet Union.

    With experts talking peak oil and the drastic decline of future oil reserves; a new world order is at our doorstep.

    Our great great grandchildren will know what it's like to plow a field with a team of horses or oxen. Electric cars/trucks, etc., will be essential but not as plentiful as our fossil fuel vehicles are today.

    This country will see the tremendous increase of mass transportation so don't right off the railroad yet. In another 50 years the fact that the railroad screwed up big time by giving up many of their right-of-ways will sink in. Government forced public right-of-ways will once again be revived due to necessity.

    Solar, wind, etc., these things will be harnessed to the maximum and the latest methods of agriculture will be employed for future survival.

    So that's my opinion from my own investigation. I see a brighter and more healthy future...not gloom and doom. The day is coming when every healthy person will have to pull his own. There will be far less pollution and people will be happier due to being physically and emotionally healthier.

    And they lived happier ever after

    What's your opinion?

    It doesn't matter to you or me. We won't be here.


    you know in a way I kinda guess the future, but then real fast know that it will 'be just what it will be'

    there are tons of factors that can change. war, weather extremes, big disaster like asteriod, economic total failure and all that mess that could screw up the entire societies overnight.

    I worry about my kid. Her future. I 'almost' worry about 'her maybe grandkids future' but after that I am out of the game

    I want my daughter to live well. I want her family to live well but after that it is a crapshoot one can't see or do anything about at that stage of the game.


    but since I believe, I will be looking DOWN and seeing what is happening

    Consider This...


    When you walk the streets you'll have no cares, If you walk the lines and not the squares, As you go through life make this your goal

    Watch the donut, not the hole

    It's written on the rainbow

    In letters made of gold

    Written on the rainbow

    There's wisdom to behold

    My friend the little sparrow

    Flew close enough to see

    Written on the rainbow

    Is this philosophy

    As you go through life make this your goal

    Watch the donut, not the hole


    NOW follow the bouncing ball and you all join in...

    Hard telling what we'll go through first before the agrarian society age springs forth.

    Hey, I don't want to sound like an expert, but 100 years from now you won't recognize the society of tomorrow. We will be far into space and space colonization(a Mars landing is coming up and a manned mission is planned for the near future). There are amazing things taking place at our universities. MIT was able last year to move a beam of light 40 feet down a workbench. Dissolve, move and reappear. Nuclear fusion is on our doorstep. Texas A&M claimed to have produced cold fusion, but they could not reproduce the experiment. This will provide cheap renewable energy for the world. Our technology doubles every 2.5 years now. In my lifetime we have gone from no TV to too many damm channels to count. Music from 45 and 33 1/3 rpm records to buying(stealing)it off the internet and store thousands of songs in a tiny device. These are toys compared to where we are going. We are a strong and powerful nation because we are always looking forward. And it takes visionaries.The guy who said here that he is worried about his daughter. Well, make sure she gets a good education and goes to college to major in science or engineering(please not law), two fields wide open to women. Back to an agrarian society? Never going to happen. Besides, most small farms are doomed and already belong to big corporations. If you really worry about the future then take some steps. Stay in school, go as far as you can. VOTE or don't ***** about what is happening in your country. Get a job, anything to support yourself and always keep searching for a better one. Limit your freedom? Raise your taxes? You let it happen. After the civil war a young man asked Frederick Douglas what he should do. Douglas said, "Agitate, Agitate, Agitate". If you don't like it change it. If you don't think that we'll be on other planets just wait until oil, coal or natural gas is discovered on one. And if by chance gold, silver or some Extraterrestial coin is found, then every TH'er on this site will be there. Hell, Garrett, Fisher, White's and the boys won't be able to keep up with production. Look, I found an Alpha Centari gold schmick schomk worth 100,000 credits. Gotta go now. Time for my nap and enema...

    Pipelines? Hope you are joking. You must be. People in Michigan must be smarter than Texans, must be...

    Unless we wake up in time, of which I don't see much hope for.

    2 more elections gone wrong, and we're done. We may be done for anyway.
    "A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything." Friedrich Nietzsche

    "You ask where I live. I cannot tell you. I am a Voyageur, a Chicot, sir. I live everywhere. My grandfather was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."
