Personal interaction.

I know I won't be doing any once VR catgirls are invented.

Personal interaction is dying out thanks to the likes of facebook, twitter and dating sites. 1 out of 3 relationships start online now. How depressing is that?

If we get an EMF strike, be it man caused or astral, personal interaction will surge exponentially overnight account all things electrical will cease to function. Power grids, automotive, mass transit, ATMs, fuel distribution points, everything convenient will shut down. Poof.

Collectivism seems to be gaining in popularity as a lifestyle choice among groups. Plucky individualism is in decline. The elephant in the room is world population growth. The gnawing problem that is not going to go away is mass immigration worldwide. Individual sovereign countries are finding they do not have the resources on hand to be nirvana to every immigrant seeking refuge from the hostile environments he / she / it / they used to call home. China has bought 1000's of acres in Africa with the intent of shuttling its population excess there for resettlement in the future. Our neighbors to the south (I reside in the US) are experiencing non-indigenous populations traversing through their countries in search of something better than uber-poverty. There are many situations globally experiencing this phenomena of population reshuffling.

If we continue to be of the mind set that all countries possess individual sovereignty then a coming to terms with what is to become of these immigrants must be addressed very soon. NIMBY won't be a viable option. Certain countries would like resettlement to occur in country A or country B, etc. Well, what do the affected indigent populations think about that prospect? Someone far away wants your domain to become the global babysitting service.............there is no obvious easy answer to this 21st century dilemma.

There is a line of thinking that if we collectively thought like globalists all would be well (one world order). If we can just relinquish our worldly desires and become more oriented toward humanism (for lack of a better term) that might be where the answer lies if population growth isn't going to be held in check on an individual voluntary basis. One large collective world order is a tall request to ask of those of us still unwilling to relent, rethink, reinvent our lifestyles overnight, for change.

I don't know the answer. No doubt do many of you and world leaders are perplexed also. What I do suspect though is that THIS will be the historic el primo dilemma for the 21st Century.

The world is changing so fast it is impossible to predict what it will look like even 20 years from now.

The environment has always been the victim especially to it's self.
I think the victim exclusive to the 21st will be diversity, as cultures become more interwoven cultures will be influenced be each other. Japan already has McDonalds, they import their beef.

I can tell you right now it won't be religion. Religion only gets stronger when things get tough.

I choose the environment, but believe all of the above will suffer to some extent. Some forms of religion and cultures may undergo changes as a result, but that is not always a bad thing either. So maybe "suffer" is not a term I would use for all of these, but yes definitely effected.

Totally agree with also feel i personally won't live long enough to see huge changes but the generation that follows me probably will maybe that's why my generation seems to care less then they should ?
