Poor people, the 'unnessary' people will have to die to make room for the rich to increase their lifespans.

It's weird to meet the real life David Sarif.

Oh, and my friend the supervillain…and my other friend the supervillain, they want everyone connected.

Things are definitely coming to a head and the false prophets are out in force promising paradise and eternal life.

Jodie Smith says:

We are about to see the return of Jesus! That’s what . Hahahaha fools! Just saying! And I wouldn’t get that jab if my life depended on it, and it kills me that people are lining up to be a science experiment. I don’t even think I can sit through this $hit! God bless everyone, I pray for God almighty to open y’all’s eyes to see and ears to hear!🙏❤️

Looking back through the impact of COVID, one wonders how that has delayed advancement.

This needs an update, Neurlink is a good example. Good video!

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."

~ Buckminster Fuller

Let us form a more perfect Union.

No more "leaders" please, I'm good.

 I'd like a say in how taxes are spent and policy implemented. I'd like all U.S. Citizens to have the right of self-determination too.   

Representative Government breeds corruption. Always. Capitalist, Communist or Socialist, they all fall prey to the greed inherent in humanity. All of them. Every time.

The reason we have a representative government is because the only form of long distance communication at the time was a horse or a boat. We no longer need a pony express. Well we don't need "representation" that doesn't represent us either.

How hard would it be to make an app with blockchain encryption that allows you and I equal say in how this country is run? No more politics. No more lobbyists. No more division. No more false flags and blood for oil. No more underfunded VA, schools, seniors, handicapped, after school programs, ect. ad infinitum.

How long have you been wishing, hoping for REAL change?

You hold the answer in the palm of your hand.

Of the People, By the People and For the People. Accept no substitute.

Just my 2 cents.

Defense against the Borg hive mentality will be needed.
Thought crimes might become a reason to erase minds. Then rewriten. Becoming someone else entirely.

Matt Turner says:

What is the end goal of all this?

Martha Fritz says:

I wouldn't want to be part of the Facebook or Google future. Their fascistic censorship shows they are not up for the moral leadership. There is more to life than being connected…It is called being FREE!

M'sheArt2 says:

It's genetic engineering, transhumanism, man and machine on the cyborgs, that's not Transformation that's uninformed and criminal MANIPULATION!

Ken Cohen says:

Beyond the rapid advances in technology, it is our humanity itself that has yet to evolve. Our own viability as a species on planet earth today will require much greater levels of co-creative engagement than what our current forums for change will allow. Peter, your heart is in the right place, however, the solutions you are espousing are still landlocked within this current unsustainable paradigm.
