So here is the voice of the technocrat to tell you what the plan is for your future. In a speech to Joint Venture Silicon Valley/Silicon Valley Community Partnership, a consortium of wealth and technology overlords in California, 'futurist' Paul Saffo (formerly of The Institute for the Future (IFTF) a Palo Alto CA–based think tank established in 1968, as a spin-off from the RAND Corporation, to help organizations plan for the long-term future, a subject known as futures studies. --Wikipedia) speaks the vision out loud:
CITY-STATES and NEO-FEUDALISM.
Especially important to know about this speech is that it is sponsored by the co-creators of Plan Bay Area, also known as One Bay Area, the regionalization plan that combines all nine counties and 101 cities into a mega-city.
This speech was given in February 2013 but an earlier 2007 speech captures Saffo saying that in 50 years the United States will be erased and city-states will have replaced them.
Saffo is a professor at Stanford University.
He gets into it at about minute 18 on this video.
YOU ARE BEING PREPARED FOR THIS FUTURE.
