Forums - General Discussion - What is the most scariest realistic thought that you believe will come true?

The US will suffer another economic depression around 2030-2035. It will be caused by excessive amounts of debt: National debt,
student load debt, credit card debt, mortgage debt, etc...

The unemployment rate will reach a high of at least 25%. This depression will become a global one and last for several years.

Possibly already happening to the Uyghurs in China.

That we're heading for nuclear war all because world leaders are spineless idiots who want to take us all down with them.

The most realistic scariest thing I believe in is the United States will be hit with a nuclear bomb. I hope this doesn't happen obviously, but unfortunately I do think we are going to get hit by one in our lifetime. I don't know which country or terrorist group would do it, but I feel it is the inevitable. There is no way these countries are spending billions of dollars and putting this much time and effort just for fun.

This is a groundless fear imo.

They arnt.

These countries, with dictators that have nuclear programs, do so, for their own "freedom".
If you have nukes, it means the USA wont invade you, and overturn your rule, in the name of "democracy".

The terroritst groups you mentioned are the real threat.
Its not the small countries with nuclear programs that are a worry, its the single madman that only wants or needs a single one.

Still how would you even get one on US soil? I doubt that'll ever happend.



Automation/AI causing huge social and economic changes which destabilises nations across the globe.

The United States government is the world's only terrorist group ballsy enough to bomb/attack the United States of America as they've done it before you know, any other country or group that dares to attack the US does so with the US government's permission.

As for what i believe, is that people are increasingly becoming more ignorant and backwards thinking and behavior is becoming normalized while logical thinking and reasonable actions is shamed upon or outright attacked.

This sounds realistic enough to me.

Too many people scam the system, that sooner or later all bubbles burst.
There could easily be another "great depression" because our current economic systems are too flawed.


Eksample:
More people "own" gold, than gold amounts that actually exsist in the world.
If ever person that has shares in gold, went to take out that amount they should own, there wouldnt be enough to cover everyone.

Theres tons of crazy sh*t like this, and its amasing that its all still running smoothly.
Bank industry has taken too many liberties, and theres too little regulation to prevent all this abuse, that its just a matter of time.

Again this is gonna happend at some point.

Society will collasp when robots are able to do any job, better than a man (which again is just a matter of time).
At that point, only those that own robots, will make any profits.

Societ and our economy will have to undergo drastic changes, or see everything implode on itself.
(ei. captialism doesnt work, if the value of a human life working, is nothing)


^ this isnt something likely to happend in our lifetime though. I'd consider this something in the far future.



I think Death Stranding pointed out some interesting potential dilemmas. They mention how in the not-so-distant future, the potential of 3D printing will allow for people to print out their own bombs, and eventually, this is what will lead to the collapse of the world as we know it.

I think we will reach a point in our life where most jobs we do nowadays can be done by machine. That alone will be destabilising, and I think part of the political shifts happening in developed countries is because of this phenomena. The next decade will demonstrate this problem.
