In 2016, Autism finally has a cure and millions get cured of their autism due to Trump's enormous wealth donated to finding a cure. Trump gets elected in a landslide and Hillary Clinton commits suicide in a public interview on CNN. Sanders gets ousted by the conservatives and flees to Canada and creates the micro nation "United Socialist States of America" deep in the Canadian prairie. Planned Parenthood becomes privately funded by the rich white elite in order to destroy the African american community. Trump's first policy is to build a fence keeping out the illegals and stopping all immigration. Unfortunately stopping all immigration destroys the US economy as it faced a shortage of workers to pick all the food and no more immigrants to take over medical and other STEM jobs taken by Asians. As america starves, Trump comes up with a new plan. He calls his middle class and poor supporters to listen to him at Michigan Stadium. He orders the release of toxic fumes which kills all the attendees and then starts a new subsidized food known as Soy-lent. This new food becomes a hit among the elite rich and soon middle and poor class people are rounded up to become a tasty snack for the millionaire on the go. With a lack of workers to do the labor work of the elite, he changes america's immigration policy to let millions of immigrants back into america. So many Mexican immigrants come in that they change the demographics of many states in a matter of a few years. By now everyone dislikes trump and Trump has fled to the United Socialist States of America which now has millions of residents despite being so far north due to global warming making it warm and hospitable to people. Also Florida is underwater and California is reclassified as third world and splits off from the Union. The mass immigration of Mexicans causes many Mexicans to shun american culture and embrace their own culture. Mexico becomes the richest country on earth because all the poor Mexicans left for america. Mexico now challenges the US and starts a second cold war. In 2036, Kanye West runs for president and wins by a landslide as the only other candidate was the aborted fetus of Kim kardashian that could run since the fetus was technically over 30 years old and since fetuses as considered humans during Trump's Presidency. Kanye West unfortunately botches negotiations with the Mexican Government and Mexicans continue to riot and demand the southwestern states join mexico or be given autonomous status similar to the wales in the UK or Quebec in Canada. Kanye West, in desperation, loans money from China to build orbiting space stations capable of firing missiles. He lends Chinese Millionaires land in exchange for a complete embargo on Mexico, technology and appeals to the government to give them military support. China Agrees. China destroys Mexico's space capabilities allowing the US to sweep in and destroy Mexico. Mexico now becomes a part of New Mexico. However the US is deeply in debt and 95% of it is owed to China. In 2044, China demands all the money owed by the US causing the US economy to cripple. The US becomes third world and agrees to become an autonomous territory of China and give up all military secrets. By 2045, The US is 25% Chinese 60% Mexican 3% Black (planned parenthood committed a genocide against them) 10% White and 2% Other.

Anybody that is trying to cure autism should kill themselves. It's like trying to cure homosexuality or curing people who have empathy.

If we don't get off this planet by the time our children start dieing of old age, I can tell you what it will be like.

Terrifying.

It will be a slow but steady drain of our planets resources due to overpopulation. We have 7 Billion people and are already at the breaking point. We can't delay the inevtitable forever.

Earth is our crib, it was never meant to be our grave.

Doom and gloom? It might be, but I believe that any doom and gloom will be a result of WW3.
Here is my predictions. We will continue to march forward in technologies. What is in the future is not known, just as no one in the 1970's could see how the internet would transform our lives. The future of robotics, smart computers, AI, manipulation of energy, and other technologies will so transform our lives that it will make the internet look like an old typewriter. Some of these technologies don't seem like a big deal right now, but they will cut down on business costs and allow more growth to happen. In fact, many economists continue to predict economic collapse, but they are deciphering their predictions based on old models. They are forgetting to throw into the economy the unbelievable advancements of technology that will continue to advance our lives. I wished I was born today, because babies born today have a very high chance of living past 100, or even older.
Governments will continue to try and push a socialist agenda, but this agenda will blend more and more with Democracy and freedom, because information and technology that gives us more and more independence will be affordable and allow us to do all kinds of things without help of the government or experts. Consider the fact that many people do not even go to mechanics today. Instead, they watch a video on Youtube on how to fix a u-joint, and then they fix it. It is not known what more advanced ideas we will have access to in the future.
Terrorism and war will increase, however, more enlightened people will realize, philosophically, that evil exists, and will always exist. Fighting against this evil will be a must, and an understood part of our lives. Islam and terrorism will never go away, but we will learn that fighting it is just part of living on planet Earth.
A huge threat to our lives is WW3, and who will rule the earth in the future. This war could cost the lives of 1 billion people. However, we will bounce back, just as we did after WW2. We will continue to advance.
Global Warming will not be the ultimate threat. Most of these fears are based on myth. Today, the ocean has not risen in any threatening way. Scientists have kept track of ocean rises. They know that the ocean rises about 2 inches a year. It continues to rise because of the last ice age, and the oceans water continues to rise in temperature ever so slightly, but enough to raise the sea levels slightly every 100 years. The real threat to global warming, if it is really happening, is an increase in precipitation, higher snow packs, and the possibility of those snow packs leading to another ice age.

I think these excellent visions show just how little we do control our future.
This is not due to lack of intelligents but lack of singularity of purpose.
When men clash with primative weapons harm is minimal but we are not primative.
We have two serious dangers in the near future. Climate and antibiotic resistance.

It was the year 3000 and pockets of humanity still survived in northern latitudes, the equitorial region was a super-hot desert plagued by dust storms.
Their economy was rual and horse powered and the life expectancy was about forty years.
It was rumoured that long ago men flew great machines in the sky and many loved to hear these old myths. The more down to earth and sensible scoffed at such talk.

As somebody with an autism-spectrum disorder, I must disagree with your point of view. Curing autism would be great. It would certainly make my life easier.

Also, it's very mean to say "[somebody] should kill themselves".

I see two possible futures for this world.

Future 1: Trump gets elected. Queue WW3 and continued global warming.

Future 2: Sanders gets elected. Business as usual.

You'rebfine the way you are. Autism comes with just as many strengths as weaknesses, and the world would be worse off if a certain portion of the population, did not have it. It would make me sad, if a cure was available, and you took it

That really depends on what type of autistic you are, and to what degree. For example, people with Aspergers, are usually able to focus on small things, for an extraordinary amount of time, allowing them to learn things in greater detail. If you're like Temple Grahndine, she thinks differently than most, so she is able to use her unique perception of the world to revolutionize how cows are herded.

It's things like that. The uniqueness means you see and think of problems in different ways, allowing for solutions to problems that would be overlooked by most non autistic people.

as weaknesses, and the world would be worse off if a certain portion of the population, did not have it. It would make me sad, if a cure was available, and you took it

You don't know me, so your sadness would be rather pointless.

Well, foolish you. I wouldn't be sad for you. I'd be sad for the world, because it would lose another person who has great capacity to find unique solutions to problems that would otherwise be overlooked. The world is a better place because of autistic people.

I could care less about you, on a personal level.

It's things like that. The uniqueness means you see and think of problems in different ways, allowing for solutions to problems that would be overlooked by most non autistic people.

Asperger's here. My "focus on small things" trait is actually a distraction: I get sidetracked, and often miss the bigger picture.


as weaknesses, and the world would be worse off if a certain portion of the population, did not have it. It would make me sad, if a cure was available, and you took it

You don't know me, so your sadness would be rather pointless.

Well, foolish you. I wouldn't be sad for you. I'd be sad for the world, because it would lose another person who has great capacity to find unique solutions to problems that would otherwise be overlooked. The world is a better place because of autistic people.

I can't speak for AS people in general, but most of my "new ideas" are either hampered by the "focus on small things", or are so painstakingly obvious that other people have already thought of them. What you're describing is more the result of genius than of autism.

I could care less about you, on a personal level.

Good to know.

Anybody that is trying to cure autism should kill themselves. It's like trying to cure homosexuality or curing people who have empathy.

As somebody with an autism-spectrum disorder, I must disagree with your point of view. Curing autism would be great. It would certainly make my life easier.

Also, it's very mean to say "[somebody] should kill themselves".

You'rebfine the way you are. Autism comes with just as many strengths

Such as?

That really depends on what type of autistic you are, and to what degree. For example, people with Aspergers, are usually able to focus on small things, for an extraordinary amount of time, allowing them to learn things in greater detail.

With the school system how it is, I'm not surprised you see that as a weakness for now. The focus and persistence that comes with Aspergers will pay off later in life when you're able to solve problems that require more thinking than most people have patience for.

Genius or not, these things are strengths as well as weaknesses, and they'll pay dividends if you let them.

It really has nothing to do with the school system.

If it's not self directed, than I'd say it is. Is the school system in New Zealand self directed learning and specifically geared towards autistic kids?

State system isn't, but some alternative schools are. I've tried both, and they're both B.S.

In the year 3744. We make something the size of coin,of any material dissappear, when we do this , within a year you can buy it at Kmart for 100 bucks. And within that year we can make massive spaces dissappear. Then 1 person can make every thing dissappear. And 1 person dose. Thus concludes life. I've been there. And yes you me all of us will still be here . Not as 1000 year Olds but . I'm not 100% sure of how we will all be there because it's stupid and unfathomable. It just that I can't see no day in the year 3745. When I should be able to. This is why I don't eat sun dried tomatoes.
