In a dream I had, I saw and sensed many things about a potential future world. Drastic changes had taken place slowly, and economic powers and the
general states of being of many countries had shifted in what from our perspective right now would be called unexpected ways.
For instance, 22 years from now ~20% of Americans were in prison around the year 2035.
In the dream, it was simply a fact of life to every citizen not in prison, that all laws, arbitrary or not, must be followed perfectly without fail,
because prison was a mandatory punishment for all "crimes".
It was another fact that the entire police force throughout the country was corrupted to the core, and that to get out of going to prison for either a
real reason, or a made up one, you had to be able to bribe them, or the judge. I guess kinda like today but on a seriously increased scale.
The citizenry was very docile. No protesters, no rebels, no non-conformists. They were all already in prison. Police presence was increased everywhere
to monitor the docile citizenry and cull the herd whenever possible, so to speak. Policing as an industry had exploded, along with labor industries
that were kept moving with prisoner slave labor.
The US had a booming economy due to the essentially revived slave trade. Of course only those at the top were benefiting. Quality of life had actually
declined for the ordinary out-of-prison citizen, from what it is now, even though the country then is technically vastly economically empowered.
The out of prison people seemed not very upset by any of it. I sensed they thought "well Im not in prison, because Im a good citizen, so its all OK".
Very complacent, much farther beyond what we have today even.
Some, or even most of them, the citizens that is, were even... at peace. They didnt have to make any decisions... they didnt have to decide anything.
Life was very regimented with the high police presence and out of control criminalization of everything, and deviating from the safe routine of wake,
work, eat, sleep, repeat, was dangerous.
... But that was OK for most. It made them feel safer, that they didnt have to make choices, and in fact might be disproportionately punished if they
did gave them a sense of... ease, in that they had a reasonable excuse in their minds to not go against the flow.
I sensed the military was smaller, and actually LESS wars were being fought. In fact, no wars were being fought at that point in time. The US military
presence around the world had decreased
Competition with China was at a fever pitch, and a new cold war of sorts was manifesting. Focus on military prowess was decreased and on the fringes;
focus on espionage and cyber warfare and economic sabotage was drastically increased.
I sensed China was in the same mode of reviving slavery through a different less direct means, to try and keep up with the US, economically. The US
had become so successful in its economic strategy that is was threatening China, and China had to keep pace. Of course this all happens over decades
of time with many subtle changes to lead to big ones.
I sensed India was actually a good place to be; it was progressing forward at a quick pace in pretty much every positive metric from where it is now.
Freedom increases, as well as quality of life and prosperity. Corruption decreases, and government shifts increasingly towards the benefit of the
Japan is mostly economically depressed, but stable. Japan does not adopt the fad of reviving slavery that China and the US has, and is not able to
compete on a global scale. However Japan is one of two leaders in science, and while its economy has shrunk, quality of life for its citizens
increases still. Crime lowers from its already right now significantly low levels. Poverty seems not an issue.
Western Europe is economically ruined from what I sensed, and has not been successful at implementing round-about slavery, due to massive and constant
civil unrest from large percentages (10%+) of citizens resisting increasingly and overtly tyrannical power plays by their governments. Police are
demoralized, and increasingly siding with the citizens. The strongest countries I felt this occurring in were Britain, Ireland, Scotland, and Spain.
Total revolution was becoming a real potential. Where I sensed this the weakest: Germany, France, and Italy.
Russia is economically stable and becoming increasingly isolationist. They do not attempt to adopt the economic strategies of China and the US. They
are the other leader in science, along with Japan. Quality of life slowly increases a small amount from today. Freedom slowly increases in little ways
from where it is today. I sensed there was general peace in Russia in a country vs country aspect. Russia was becoming increasingly neutral towards
the US and China, and forming stronger and friendly bonds with Eastern and Northern Europe.
Eastern Europe becomes slightly worse, however the trend is reversing at that future point at a moderate pace.
Northern Europe sees little change. It does not participate in its Westerns neighbors antics. Some positive change in quality of life.
Australia's citizenry seems close to the US citizenry in terms of attitude, however Australia is not a prison state, and its quality of life seems
higher compared to now, but laws seem to have somewhat followed the trend in the US and Western Europe.
The Middle East is quiet.
I had no sense of Israel at all in the dream. Trying to sense back now into the dream, it feels as if Israels presence is significantly diminished in
all respects. It still exists, however, and there is general peace.
North Korea is quiet.
Africa stays the same.
Central America stays the same.
Canada distances itself from the US. Boarders become tighter, however escape to Canada from the US is fairly easy. Population increases with US
immigrants/refuges, and with it Canadas economic stability and strength.
South America generally stays the same. Chile and Argentina see minor to moderate improvements across the board. Brazil fizzles out.
