: Things will remain about the same.
Wrong, for starters.
: All in all, a bright future. Which is of course what one would expect, given the global triumph of the free-market paradigm. Sorry.
A bright future, given that the U.N. is predicting wars due to the lack of fresh water within the next 30 years; that the climate is becoming ever more extreme due to atmospheric change; that the Western world has used up more of the Earth's non-renewable resources in the last 40 years than it did in all the rest of recorded history totalled; and the rate of consumption is still increasing.
You are in the position of someone thrashing the engine of a car whilst happily insisting that it doesn't ever need more fuel or oil; that maintenance is in fact entirely unnecessary and that the black smoke pouring out of the back is in fact imaginary and Communist-inspired.
A pox on you, you pompous buffoon.
