What plausible new technologies would most increase the chances of world peace between now and 2050?

I would say any technology that is related to Disaster Management and Control, any to do with water and food production and any technology that involves Civil Defense will all be in demand.

It is not an easy question to answer as Climate Change is increasingly beginning to affect the decisions made about our future.

Example. Would you invest in a new fruit farm in California?

Would you build a high-rise on a low-lying coastal area?

Would you increase the Federal Budget for flood and bush-fire damage?

It does not matter if you agree that Climate Disasters are man-made or not you still have to plan for the increase in Climate Disasters.

Therefore, any technology has to take Climate Change into account.

I would say any technology that is related to Disaster Management and Control, any to do with water and food production and any technology that involves Civil Defense will all be in demand.

As for the subject ‘World Peace’, without technology advances in the areas I have just described I believe the possibility of World Peace to be increasingly remote without them.

Climate Disasters will increase in frequency and in magnitude causing vast movements of people – we are already seeing a yearly increase in movements of people affected by Climate Disasters. Countries will seek to manage their borders in order to ensure that food and water is available for their own citizens.

This could lead to an increase in regional Conflicts and perhaps even a constant state of ‘World Conflict’.

If we want World Peace we must be able to address the ‘conflict of interests’ that will occur with Climate Change and for that we will need technologies that will provide, food, water and shelter.

As of today, has ISIS been defeated?

The West and in particular the U.K is now at an even greater risk of terrorist attacks than when ISIS was a capable Military Invading Force.

cropped-facebook-2.jpg

This is my answer to this Question on Quora.

Unfortunately not. Nobody from ISIS signed a surrender document. ISIS’s military capability as an invading force may have been reduced but now the terrorist attacks will intensify.

The West and in particular the U.K is now at an even greater risk of terrorist attacks than when ISIS was a capable Military Invading Force.

Without the use of hard borders the European Union continues to put its citizens at risk from a new reformed ISIS.

Further destabilisation is now more certain in Northern Africa, Asia and Northern Afghanistan.

ISIS is not Al Qaeda. Their roots come from very different forms of the use of the Quran and they have both different paths to what it is they want.

ISIS is secure in the knowledge that it acts for God. ISIS continues to rewrite the Quran with no alternative available for those who seek God as a shelter for their discontent and anger with the ‘Evil of the West’. Which is why Theresa May and the U.K Security Services have put Citizens at risk by ignoring my ‘New Perspective’ of the Word of God.

The Taliban would be the West’s best hope of an eventual defeat of ISIS but the U.S in the absence of a reformed United Nations is going it alone in Afghanistan.

A proxy war in Afghanistan between Russia and the U.S looms ever closer with Russia and China both funding the Taliban.

ISIS is a cause with its own martyrs. It will now be recruiting a whole new group of supporters from within Europe, Asia, Northern Africa and the U.S. with its own page in history as its beacon.

Given time ISIS will be even more militarily capable than it was in Iraq and Syria.

If we are to defeat ISIS than Russia, China and the U.S must be on the same page in Afghanistan.

The U.K urgently & immediately needs a new Government with strong positive Leadership.

I am still searching for the words that can redefine ‘incompetence’ and ‘intellectually challenged’.

Did Theresa May and her Cabinet cancel their summer holidays in what is one of the most important years in U.K History? No.

Did Theresa May and her Cabinet cancel their summer holidays in what is one of the most important years in U.K History? No.

Where are our new alliances and post Brexit Unions?

Where is our new Union of ex-E.U European States? Nowhere.

Where is our new RD strategy so that we can direct funding to non-E.U markets? Nowhere.

Where is any new Economic Strategy? Nowhere

Where is our new Agricultural Policy to ensure we increase the productivity of our agricultural system and grow crops that compete with non E.U produce? Nowhere.

Where is our new Defense Policy to take into account the new U.S/France alliance? Nowhere.

Where is our new Naval Strategy to ensure our Type 45 Destroyers who are required to escort our new aircraft carrier can still protect the U.K against IBCM with the Viper/PRIMS System – as they will now be required to protect the HMS Elizabeth?

Where is our new anti-terrorism Strategy and Public warning to be ready for chemical attacks? Nowhere.

Where is our new Acid and Chemical product and sales monitoring and flag system? Nowhere

Where are the Military to secure our borders to ensure returning ISIS do not co-operate with criminal groups in the U.K to use chemical weapons? Nowhere.

Where are the arrests of out of control U.K Cyber Criminals? Nowhere

I could go on and on and on. Never in the history of the U.K has there ever been such a totally inadequate Government in charge of the U.K

Wake up U.K Your Government is absolutely hopeless. You do not have a Government you have a ‘laughing stock’ and with the whole world watching.

 

Are you a bad person? Why aren’t you bad exactly now?

cropped-facebook-2.jpg

This is my answer to this Quora Question.

I ask myself what does it take to be a bad person? Greed, selfishness, apathy? because it would appear many Government Leaders have those attributes.

 

I could not kill innocent men women and children. They do by war and economic mismanagement.

I am not a bad person because if I was a Prime Minister my Government would not allow innocent men women and children to die in Yemen by supplying arms to cause them to die in that way.

I would not let my AirForce bomb innocent civilians in Afghanistan. Over 1.5 million civilians and soldiers have died in conflict in Afghanistan since 1979.

My Government tells the children of the U.K to be good and moral. Yet it supplies arms that kill children.

I am not bad exactly now because I unlike my Government have a Principle. One that does not aid in the killing of children.

With all the hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes, and volcanoes erupting in the world, could this mean the world is coming to an end?

Yes. I always use this description to explain Climate Change.

Open the bonnet of your car. Cut the fan belt. Take out the thermostat. Block the radiator and drive it as fast as you can in first gear.

The engine will overheat, you will lose all your water and the head or block will crack.

Have you ever watched the temperature gauge of your car go into the red?

As the red needle or indicator increases the rate of increase gets faster – it accelerates.

Thar is where our Planet is now and the rate of ice melting and loss of the Amazon is increasing. The more ice that melts and the less cooling area we have the faster the rate of increase. Major Climate Disasters also change the way in which our thermal currents and atmospheric pressures interact above and below ground. We stand the risk of creating a new Climate and one which will not be reversible.

Can we reverse the accelerating rate of increase?

Possibly but we are running out of time. We need a ‘No Disadvantage Mandatory Climate Change Agreement’ – not the waste of Paper and money of the Paris Agreement.

I have written such a system but who am I? As far as Theresa May and the U.K Government is concerned – nobody.

What are the most significant pros & cons of globalization?

This is my answer to this Question on Quora.

At its best globalization should be an amalgamation of comparative advantage. Yet it has become the reduction of the human value.

Globalization has been led by profit and greed rather than by trading value and exchanging advantages in manufacturing and the supply of resources.

In effect our Governments have handed over economic theory to the law of the Jungle – they have walked away from their own responsibilities to citizens and allowed Global Organisations to become third party Governments.

Note: Third Party Government – this sees persons not elected by the People making decisions which will affect their economic futures – such as the World Economic Forum, the IMF and in some respects for those Countries without direct representation – the G20.

Certain Governments and in particular the U.K Government went so far as to hand over their whole economy to International Organisations and Companies and as a result have allowed the U.K to become the doormat of the developed World.

The U.K Government’s compounded their lack of Economic Control by handing over their Economic Sovereignty to the E.U and by doing so took a backseat to the control of the direction of their Economy.

The E.U did not ask for control the U.K Government gave it to them.

The U.K Foreign Office must hold much of the blame for their out-dated historic view of the U.K’s position in the World which has desolated the U.K’s Economy – that and a lack of any new Economy thinking by the U.K Government and Bank of England.

Mark Carney the current Bank of England Chairman is a classic example of a Financial Leader who is unable to produce new thinking and direction. He has failed to combat the Global Effect of Capital making its own policy independent of Government – Globalisation. Carney does not lead he follows and in part is responsible for the debacle that has become Brexit.

Hence the U.K no longer has its own manufacturing base and its R&D is invested in mainly foreign owned companies or emerging companies who are then bought by foreign companies.

Using the U.K as an example Globalisation has produced below economic expectation wages, an unnecessary movement of workers, a strain on Infrastructure , a clash of Cultures and a foreign concentration of Capital as well as third Party Government.

Who is running the U.K? Not the Government. They now have no control over the direction of the Economy. Global Financial Interests run the U.K Economy. The result; no hospital bed for your mother, not enough teaching time for your children, no Police for your house burglary, no new Tanks for the U.K Army.

Brexit will only increase the U.K’s exposure to Globalization. In effect the U.K will become the Developed World’s first Third World Country.

What are the pros? There are none. Until Governments regain control of their Economies then capital will go wherever the least expensive cost of multiplying it is located. There is no ‘level playing field’. Ask Australia. It no longer has a car manufacturing industry.

That is why President Trump wants to regain control of America Economy through the direction of its manufacturing base.

Globalisation can be a power for good but only if it is controlled and directed.

Yes it does provide jobs to developing countries but at what cost and to whose tax department?

We cannot continue to allow large global displacements of the economic power of the people and Governments to corporations who have only their bottom line as the motive for their existence.

If the World is to evolve economic equilibrium we must ensure that Global Economic Organisations and Companies are given the opportunity to align themselves with Nation State Policy and not ‘shareholder bonus’ and that  includes Citizen Representation of Global Economic Movements and Organisations.

The bottom line of Globalisation is that ‘There is no Democracy at the International Level’.
