You can’t solve problems without first having an understanding.


This website provides you with essential information about the forces present pushing Americans out of the social-economic system. There isn’t any flash-bang internet gizmos, eye catching dazzling images and graphics as found on most websites, it’s just straight facts and knowledge that Americans, both young and old, need to be aware of, starting with articles I’ve written, which are viewable below.

Surveys show people don’t think the millennials and generation-Z will have the plentiful life enjoyed by their parents and grandparents. The major reason for their well founded fears is the obsolescence of people and their displacement by technology. Google the words Osborn Report pdf and you will find a report for a research project forecasting the future displacement by computers. Their results? Up to 47% of the jobs will disappear in the next twenty years because of technology displacement. Google these words- IBM, Watson and Jeopardy and you’ll find a revolution in AI (Artificial Intelligence) created by IBM which they named Watson, that went on the TV game show Jeopardy playing against the show’s two top winning champions . . . and beat the pants off both of them. Now ask yourself the question ‘could I even qualify to play on Jeopardy, and if not, then why couldn’t this machine do my job’.

Think that’s improbable? Well, right now 20 to 25% of your college graduates are unemployed or under employed, working at jobs once held by highschool dropouts. There are now 32% of American’s youth still living with their parents, unable to live on their own, unable to sustain themselves. If you don’t think technology displacement is a problem, then just watch the public school teachers and truck drivers. They’re both on the way out!

A technologically advance people will displace an inferior people.

That’s what is happening to your world today, and if you want to ever counter that, you must first know and understand the world you are living in.

It’s About the Oil, Stupid!!

                Oil is to our society as water is to a desert.

                As long as there's plenty of water, the desert blooms

                     in a lush green benign environment.

                But when the water dries up, the desert becomes a

                     very harsh unforgiving place.                     Learn MORE

Present models suggest oil will continue to decline and by 2050, there may be as little as 20% of the present oil available.
