If Unrest Soars In America Will Looters Be Shot?

An interesting question to ponder centers on social unrest and whether those with the job to protect property would follow orders if told to shoot looters. Of course, the type of violence I'm alluding to extends far beyond anything we have seen in America or most western countries. Why people loot and how governments react is the issue. You can call it martial law if you like, but whatever name you place on it, those holding the power and the guns make the final decision.

Of course, the flaw in thinking you can create a goon squad to control the masses is that your enforcers may begin to sympathize with those they are employed to suppress. 

Considering how the military is moving towards more automated weapons that kill, it is difficult to think these weapons will not eventually find their way into law enforcement. To those in power, the great thing about robots and mechanical autonomous guards is they will carry out their missions as programed. Rest assured when push comes to shove those displaced from the job market and only able to scrape by will find they are only given enough to ensure they remain docile and behave. If and when this becomes an issue conflict and violence will rise.

Before his death, famed physicist Stephen Hawking warned that Earth is headed for a “catastrophic ending” as a result of rising inequality fueled by robots that grow increasingly smarter by the day. Hawking's dire prediction came as robots and artificial intelligence started to take over human jobs. The McKinsey Global Institute predicts some 800 million people around the world will be displaced out of their jobs by 2030 as a result of automation. 

Without jobs, we stand the risk of losing our relevance in society. This creates a scenario of misery and conflict with many people displaced and those with little to lose fighting to merely survive. The topic of our future and culture always circles back to and is directly linked to the issue of jobs vanishing as automation and an army of robots march into our workplace. This can result in a future that takes on a very grim dystopian appearance. The fear of being replaced by a robot or seeing your job being outsourced or eliminated is on the rise.

Africa Has Witnessed Looting And Unrest    
Many issues get swept under the rug or are often under-reported by mainstream media this includes the number of protests over lockdowns and mask mandates. Many Americans have paid little attention to the rampant looting and violence in South Africa in July of 2021.  In short, most people are ill-informed about what is happening across the world. This shocking video of the looting in South Africa ( signals the country is on the path to social and economic collapse.

This Is Also Happening Here In America

In these areas, it seems organized retail crime gangs are no longer content to just target large department or boutique stores where they can snatch high-value merchandise from shelves.

Destroyed Packages Left On Tracks By Looters
The raiding of containers double stacked on train cars has been documented by Photojournalist John Schreiber. He has tweeted shocking videos of packages torn apart and left on the tracks by looters after they raided trains stopped Many of the boxes on the ground were from Amazon and UPS. The point is, the looters are people seeking easy-to-hit targets that can be easily converted to cash. 

The ugly truth is that once the genie of disorder gets out of the bottle it is difficult to get him back in.

Those In Power May Secretly Develop New Weapons

With around seven and a half billion people living on Planet Earth today and 10 billion predicted by 2050 even feeding our population may not be easy, especially if climate change adds to our problems. This brings us back to the prediction of famed physicist Stephen Hawking, that Earth is headed for a “catastrophic ending” in the near future.

Throughout history, we have seen new weapons are often only revealed when those in power wish to make a statement. It is reasonable that in a scenario where it rapidly becomes clear the plant has too many people vying for dwindling resources that the huddled masses will be considered "the odd man out" and it is time to cull the herd to reduce the world's population for "the greater good!"

  1. The disorder/chaos that can increasingly arise with increased numbers allied to ever increasing complexity, that the prior 'order' could apparently contain.( "but the balloon was fine until too much air being blown in caused it to go BANG! I am truly puzzled about this" > /sarcasm)
    Difficult to see a solution; increased control on (or possibly OF) those numbers is one option, which could have very grim consequences depending on the manner of its implementation.
    I fear the necessary changes of mindset in humans necessary
    for a solution to the vast majority of human problems, may not be mentally possible, PERHAPS due to the DNA inherited 'traits' all humans have, but more probably as these changes would NEVER be permitted.

  2. A sobering article but it's now becoming a reality. The United States of America is not only in decline but in collapse mode. This is not the first Empire to collapse nor will be the last. It's a part of human history.

    TPTB have allowed this societal collapse to slowly take place over time because they know full well the financial, banking and monetary systems are all on life support. They have borrowed too much over the decades and the money can never be repaid.

    So what they are doing is clever and that is too set in motion, "planned chaos" and those who are not aware of the planned chaos will beg TPTB, to "DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING" to stop the chaos.

    That's when the shooting starts when one side begs for order and gives those in charge permission to start the shooting. Many call that "Divide and Conquer".

    This is why we are hearing and reading reports of underground bunkers being sold to wealthy individuals. Nancy Pelosi who has turned the great State of California into a cesspool of drug addicts and homeless camps is now looking to take her loot and move to Naples Florida, my State. The good news is, she is in her 80's so not much time left for her to enjoy her millions along with her husband's millions for alleged insider trading.

    The question was asked long ago, how do you go broke? The answer was "a little at first and then all of a sudden".

    Let's ask the question, how does an Empire collapse? "A little at first and all of a sudden.

  3. Stephen Hawking was right, Artificial Intelligence is the great concern going forward. It is advancing at an alarming rate. Glenn Beck did a piece on artificial intelligence "Man's Final Invention" and it was chilling.

    Here's the beloved Boston Dynamics Petman. Tell me you don't have flashbacks of Terminator II?

    How about Boston Dynamics Robot Dogs who work as a team?

    1. There is no such thing as real artificial intelligence and never will be. There will never be such a thing as self-aware machine intelligence. Here's why. Intelligence requires a living thing. Computers are not alive. They are simply a collection of logic gates, vastly miniaturized, and running at great speed, with lots of memory and storage. With lots of clever algorithms, written by real intelligence, which is the human mind.

      AI learning can make it appear that it has some intelligence, but that is simply a figment of our imagination. It's simply a clever algorithm, which a real intelligence created.

      Humans are unable to create any other life except more humans. We can't create the simplest cell out of nothing. Think about it. We can't create the basic cell, which the computer equivalent is a transistor. But the transistor is a very simple device. The cell is vastly complex. The most sophisticated and advanced machines pale in comparison to the complexity of living things. And we think that somehow we can create something far more complex than a living cell, which is a complete non-human intelligence?

      As for Stephen Hawking, I am not very impressed by him. A genius in some ways, but blind and foolish in many others.

      Now, being a Christian, and also believing in an eventual end time tribulation, I wouldn't be surprised if at some point, demonic entities would somehow inhabit some of these AI machines, and make it appear it's self aware. Who really know how it will all turn out? But I would be exceptionally skeptical over the entire thing.

  4. It should be noted a rise in violent crime hurts production and productivity. This adds to inflation.

  5. Yes. Many volunteers will make sure.
