The majority of people historically have favored safety over dangerous freedom most of the time, generally speaking, we drift that direction.
The first prediction, according to this article, is products become services.
But is that really the kind of future we want?
Do we want the overlords controlling us?
Do we want to become fat people in a spaceship hovering earth as seen in Wall-E and also in a live action series called the 100, do we want to sleep in the Matrix?
Do we want to live in the Minority Report?
Are we already in the Matrix?
What other movies am I missing?
Are we living in V For Vendetta yet?
What kind of future do we want?
We should always try our best to make the future the best we can make it, but ultimately it is up to the will of the people to the extent republics corrode excessively.
A republic is a key factor which can allow generally for some private property as opposed to excessive mob-ruling anarchy democracy which is generally controlled through excessive centralized cartel monopolism and more importantly manipulated and co-opt secretly by authoritarian monarch tyranny.
It only takes less than one to ten percent of the population to spark revolution as seen in the Revolutionary War which was the beginning of the United States.
Most people prefer to be slaves.
Of course, they would tell you that's not true.
But we all know it is true.
But the good news is that it only takes a good few leaders to lead the majority of the people.
Sadly, the people who should be leading don't want to.
Historically, too many of the worse kinds of people end up leading families, groups, companies, clubs, churches, communities, cities, organizations, rallies, protests, empires, and especially countries.
If you don't want to be a slave, then you are a good leader.
It is that simple.
Don't expect all humans to understand leadership all of the time.
Of course, all humans do or can lead their own lives absolutely or to some extent. Many men end up leading their families as husbands and as fathers. Wives and mothers play pivotal roles as well. Take care of yourself first of all before going on to the next level, one step at a time.
