The world as a whole is done I think. With ALL the greed humanity has, we are done. Between dictators using tech in horrible ways, to global warming, to nukes. Our days are numbered I think 🤔

I dunno. In the 1950s a corporation couldn’t create a militarized army of combat drones and operate them from space…

Yeah, we're basically in the version of the 50s out of Mike Pondsmith's nightmares.

It feels like the leaders are getting crazier too. Putin is not Khrushchev

Is there a corporation that has a militarized army of combat drones now?

I’d wager that the statistical likelihood of that being true is somewhere around 100%

You are not wrong, you can probably blame capitalism for this, it's an ideology based on greed. As soon as those in power have AI/Android replacements, they will have no more use for us.

Communism on the other hands does not work either and from the past experience of my country I can say it is in fact way worse than capitalism.

So which ideology actually works?

Your communism likely failed due to direct capitalist intervention and/or greedy despotic leadership. Communism has a much better chance in succeeding, capitalism/ democracy has none.

I don't agree with you on this. But that's all right. Seems like you do not live in the post-communism (post-Soviet) country to actually know how bad communism can be. And no it was not because of capitalist intervention.

As a person who grew up in post-communism country, those persons in the west who keep commenting about how communism works and if it’s not for xxx it would have worked really make me depressed.

Like can we just move on please. It has already caused some of the most traumatic moments in the entire history of this land. Can we please just move on from this? I don’t want any risk that my future kids have to live through what my grandparents live through just to keep doing this mostly baseless ideological experiment.

If communism can't succeed without the support of capitalism, then you're admitting it can't succeed.

And communism will always have greedy fascists in charge, and always has

They have been saying that for decades....and we're still here. The earth was supposed to be uninhabitable by the year 2000, then it was 2012, now I think they're saying 2030. Florida was supposed to be underwater already. It's a lie to get you to give up your freedoms.

I agree except there’s no such thing as global warming. That’s why they rebranded it as climate change.

I was actually privy to this although lightly, apparently China has been working on drone swarms since 2018 and that’s why the Navy is now backing it so heavily.

Yeah, and you just need an AI to command it strategically. Chat to it, if you will. About strategy.

Luckily nobody has invented such a chat bot, let alone a 4th version of it…

Super cheap and super effective. I’m sure all the weapons manufactures just love it

My heart dropped at the blue swarmer drones knowing where this was going. Broodwar.
