The Last Days Of America

In studying American history one can conclude that during the darkest hours of the American Revolution there had to have been Divine intervention that guided General Washington to persevere and eventually triumph in securing victory for the United States. In many instances when all hope seemed to be lost the revolution was saved not only by the shrewd and calculating determination of Washington but a higher power that enabled the United States to overcome adversity under fire.

In the ensuing years much has changed since our humble beginning. That Divine intervention that steadied the hands of our Founding Fathers has been cast aside by the greed of man. One has to wonder though about human nature. Is it human nature once people are in a position of power to try and gain more control of that power? And, does power always corrupt the individual in authority considering the times of today? Sad to say in too many instances for over 45 years we have been witness to unparallel corruption in our governmental officials. The Divine guidance has been lost in obscurity and this nation continues to flounder in troubled waters.

The integrity and unselfish character of Washington helped forge what America became. Other men like Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin and John Adams embodied the true greatness of a new nation. As we near the end of the second decade of the 21st century Americas greatness has withered on that vine of lost opportunities. From the last 148 years of disingenuous policies and without the slightest concern for the American public the erosion of Americas greatness is almost complete. The blindness of too many to see and the willingness to accept what is continues to accelerate the U.S. departure from greatness to mediocrity.

We have forsaken this nation. Too many of our rights have been stripped away. They have been turned into privileges that we always have to pay. This nation has truly lost it’s way. The individuals we choose to represent us too many times we have chosen unwisely. And, too many times those that could make a difference have always been denied the opportunity to do so.

By all indications have pointed to the fact that the last days of America are upon us. When we have an Administration and too many members of Congress incapable of altering the course of this nation is the reality we face today. Gone are the character and integrity that typified the moral compass this nation had over 200 years ago.

Like all great nations through-out history they have never lasted. A striking parallel between the great power of Ancient Rome is the fact that for a long time Rome was a Democracy, that is up until the time of Julius Caesar. It was Julius Caesar though that established a prime example of political rule of a charismatic strongman whose rationale is the need to rule by force, establishing a violent social order and have a regime involving a strong military role in government. We can see a distinct correlation between Julius Caesar and one Donald Trump. When Julius Caesar came into power was the start of the decline of the Roman Empire.

The similarities between both men is too apparent to ignore. And if Trump remains in power the hand writing is on the wall, sort of speaking, that the last days of America are all readily upon us. We the people have to understand that history does repeat with outcomes very similar to the past. That is unless we have the courage to recognize how we can change the course this nation is on. There is a way to do so. But, the resolve to put in play the reforms to alter the course this nation is on has yet to be displayed.

Artificial Intelligence and the Economy in the 21st Century

Artificial intelligence is a driving business force in this fast changing 21st century. AI is no longer an implausible futuristic vision, but a stark reality that is disrupting businesses worldwide. In the 21st century, companies are forced to rethink traditional market approaches and become more service – centric in order to remain relevant. Organizations such as Uber and air are perfect examples of 21st century enterprises. The application on the demand, always on technology that propel agility, simplicity, flexibility, and lean operators with customer experience at the core of their actions enabled new dawn of large or small organizations to leverage on the benefits of Artificial intelligence (A1) to succeed in the 21st century. Companies are gradually embracing A1 and its increasingly influence every aspect of business, especially consumer technology.

According to IDC, the worldwide market for cognitive systems, content analytics, and discovery software is expected to accelerate through 2020. As a result, there are speculations regarding AI growing role and whether that might adversely affect the job market.However, the purpose of automation is not to replace humans or dehumanization, but to enhance and augment human functions for improved productivity and efficiency.

The main key benefits of artificial intelligence are stated as follows:

1.Agility from orchestration: by harnessing the power of service integration and Develops, an agile and experience-oriented business, with programmable infrastructure, application releases, and catalog-based services, can be created.

2. Simplicity from autonomics: artificial and predictive analytics will self-healing, self-service, and proactive support, while minimizing waste and establishing elasticity. This will simplify enterprise system workings and enable up-place workforce to handle higher level tasks.

3. Being lean through automation: Automating repetitive tasks will result in waste reduction, workforce optimization, and efficiency point and improvements.

Despite the above disadvantages of AI, it will take several decades before AI will actually be replacing human intelligence. The horror scenarios of AI entities taking over the planet and killing off the human race is still part of science fiction. Although several futurologists predict the possibility of transferring the human mind into a body of a robot to seek immortality in 2050.

The combination of AI and nanotechnology will also make technological breakthroughs in the fields of medicine, energy, and production systems. The combination of AI and nanotechnology applied in solar panels will cause the price of renewable sources of energy to drop dramatically starting in 2025.

The question haunting many is related to the horror scenarios in which killer AI robots start hunting down humans to be killed. These scenarios have been made popular by Hollywood blockbuster movies like the Terminator. Although AI will be beneficial for the human race, it needs to be controlled. Without proper control mechanisms and protocols, AI robots might become hostile although it a highly unlikely scenario. According to Michio Kaku, AI robots will be truly beneficial for the human race. However, in the long term, AI robots must be controlled with various inbuilt mechanisms to prevent them from becoming too independent and autonomous with becoming hostile towards humans as a real possible future scenario.

Why Money Is Failing

Anything invented by man has a short life before it fades away, and money is no exception. Invented for trade and then the wealth of those who made it their god they become so attached that it occupies their mind constantly. That means they have no room for listening to the Spirit voice within them, and they suffer the consequences. As their wealth grows many die horrible deaths from incurable diseases, suicide, or other.

The world’s economic future is now dire as manipulation of currencies and such take priorities. Wars are about money and power and we are rapidly coming to a major confrontation that will see the planet change as never before.

Already with climate change, scarcity of water, draught, famine, disease, and other things mounting pressure on countries and their economy the last thing it required was a war on trade. How will that play out in the light of the other problems the world faces?

The only place money is generated is from the environment. Whether its crops replacing forests, or animals targeted for food or pleasure, nothing about it is good for the planet. Mining minerals, oil, gas, and other things is depleting the air of oxygen while causing CO2 to dominate the atmosphere.

Overfishing of oceans and the inexcusable destruction of unwanted species is horrendous. The wastage of excesses is disgusting while the extinction of species of animals and plants the benefit of which is not yet understood is horrifying. Yet man continues on his destruction because he does not know and possibly cannot now live without money.

While its initial purpose was trade it has become so entrenched in our lives that we are asked to pay for just about everything we depend on to survive. That forces everyone to earn it or come by it in some other way. So how long can we survive with it?

The reality it that countries are already so corrupt that the governments are syphoning off the profits and people are starving. This is seen in several place as the rest of the world watches. In some regions so-called civil wars rage on as populations flee while seeking refuge and safety. As they go many of their numbers fall and die.

Money is the root of corruption and criminality and, like religion, it is so entrenched in the human psyche that nothing short of complete annihilation of the species will end it. That is rapidly coming to fruition as the planet struggles to survive, people die in their millions, but the birth rate overtakes the numbers of deaths by millions more. That is why money is failing as it’s a death sentence humans have inflicted upon themselves.
