I also try to put myself into the mental shoes of the global ruling elite at that hypothetical level.
Yeah, I definitely see where you are going... Once robotic farming, manufacturing, transportation, power generation, water purification, (even
innovation / invention?) ect. is all handled by pre-programed systems or A.I.... Why would they "need" everybody? at all?
Along with all that missing money, which I too assume is being spent in that way or similar fashion.
There certainly has been plenty of foreshadowing of allot of nasty snip, if thats the way the cookie is going to crumble.
One of my personal theories is that the "Zombie Culture" is just getting everybody ready for the zombie apocalypse... the major difference is that the
"zombies" wont be the un-dead, they'll be hungry masses on the verge of cannibalism, after a global societal collapse. Perhaps many included are ones
who have grown up all their lives immersed into a world of smart-phones and Internet and never learned any real survival, evasion, or combat skills.
Just a few agent provocateurs leading hungry hoards?? maybe its really zombies.
Or just entertainment.
Interesting post, I'll be watching that one soon.
On a lighter note, were at a point technologically that I honestly believe that even if they have been planning on killing us all off, and operating
under that decades-long plan, we can save everybody.
Even if they've been moving the pieces slowly into place with no hope of turning back I really do think we still have a chance to stop it all and save
everyone. Food, water, shelter, you name it. The tech we already have and the stuff on the way should be plenty IMO.
To me the real question is: even if they also realize this "would they even care?"
