Year Predictions
2011 ... the year of riot surfing.
2012 ... the year of picking up the pieces when you realize that most revolutions end with reigns of terror
2013 .. .when you go "ha, ha, i didn't believe in that 2012 stuff anyway"
2014 ... when you look around and see that the cybernetic AI trans humanist immortality transformation is still as far away
2015 ... the great year of cultural whatever sponsored by Levis
2016 ... Religion sends out briefs to various advertising and MR agencies to firm up eroding equity. I make billions.
2016 ... the year of despair, sponsored by xanax [which lost the contract after a bitter turf war with google]
2017 ... democracy gets liquidated - in the sense, the process is fluid. people vote whenever they feel like, via sms on global issues.
2018 ... global liqui-sphere politics are castrated by regional forces that tear down cell phone towers faster than they can be built
2019 ... people realize that they are never going to change. we have the summer of realization when humanity recognizes that ...things / situations / others have never been the problem. They themselves are.
2020 .. .The birth of thought cults. Wars are fought over footnotes in obscure texts.
2021 - 2030 ... the decade of the librarian. they are the Sweden of WW3, being the space where all can exist, and all are catalogued.2031 - the birth of the new messiah, regional thought lords who are the surfers of the now frayed liqui-polis.

Short Term Thought Shifts:
#1 - people recognize that the internet is only there to remind us of the hyperlinked nature of reality.
#2: the State outlaws the family as it is no longer profitable. Your acquisitions become your kinship systems.
#3: Your television channels becomes your new State. All TV is State sponsored. NDTV issues passports.
#4: identity politics are banned everyone confronts their incohate nature. Coherence is the new schizoid.
#5: Retweeting is the new voting. Parliment is run through open networks. Anonymous retweeting emerges.
#6: With the irrelevant family (#2) Pets are banned for being "too Oedipal"
#7: "banning" is welcomed by the public, as all negation is done to create new possibilities of being
#8: Everyone is happy because people are only meeting Avatars.
