Good post and as you say the finance and technology to undertake these things could be made available , there just doesn't seem to be the political will , on a global scale , to do it ..Makes one wonder why . I could be cynical and make a few suggestions , lol.

Good post...and you are right the world suffering in basics has to change... so has humanity and respect to others... The trouble is we are fighting the system of not wanting to go to into a confrontation situation while fighting to improve things around the world... The THREE words of Greed and Peace and Religion are the cause of so many issues in the world today... which cannot be rounded up and controlled.

Regarding the UK situation

2 things I would be concerned about ..

1 The housing crisis that we have now.. that was not so big an issue 50 years ago. .So will it get worse as more each year cannot afford to buy or rent and the house building may not be keeping up with the growing population. We have 1000 plus new homes being built in the next 10 years in Great Yarmouth area with a predicted increase in the population of 99,000 now to 120,000 in 20 years .. a bit low in my opinion . and they now say a third river crossing is needed to be built in 2020 to absorb the extra traffic generated ..cost 120 million, in 50 years the population could be 140,000 our local hospital car park is often full at busy times now. Local streets are full of visitor's cars.. with fury to local residents.. and car parking rage in the future..? More is not always better...

2 The jobs were plentiful 50 years ago now just the opposite. so will the robots and machine technology being introduce today.. gather even more momentum, resulting in even more part time and zero hours only working... This surely will create more low income poverty . I have heard that Birds Eye have introduced Zero hour working at their Lowestoft plant.. If a machine goes down some can be sent home... boy how life has changed... Less and less income stability.

There seems to be more pressure for more of everything... More cars, more planes, more delivery truck and vans, Moore traveling on trains .. with less earning power to more, less can afford a pension and more people struggle and need the NHS. People Living longer and after care now seems to be an inconvenience and added pressure to our society .. Tax Avoidance losing shed loads of Billions every year is billions lost to HELP fund schools and the NHS and after care.

The future at the current pace surely cannot continue for another 50 years without big financial changes of revenue to fund the growing loss of tax, through avoidance and increasing part time working by future cuts and technology. East Anglia railway just announced a Japan company buying into this Rail Network... Another issue as foreign players are taking over the UK .. They can pull the plug at anytime in the future if their demands are not met, and the UK government are forced to give in for fear of losing even more jobs .To many outsiders involved is never a good mix ..in the long run...Home production is surely best and we have more control and growth through our own ability

It is an interesting debate but I think limits are a good for fairness

Cup half empty or cup half full? It all depends upon how you want to see things. The last 50 years have brought us fantastic innovations and standards while many traditional standards that were tried and tested have been lost. The next 50 years will be the same, the question is have we learned? Can we restore some of the basic standards that have been lost while taking advantage of all the new technologies and improvements? Can we be more understanding and compassionate with those who are so far behind? Instead of developing more nuclear weapons can we find a way of controlling the production and distribution of all armaments? That would be a start. Might we also find the will to get water to those who don't have any? We are currently seeking £Billions of aid, divert the spend on arms and use it to lay a 5 metre diameter pipeline from Scotland through England, France, Spain, across to North Africa and on down into Central Africa, and pump water through it? There is ample water presently running 24/7 into the sea. Some years ago we laid a 10 foot pipeline for oil, and constructed the Channel Tunnel, now we have massive machines digging tunnels all around the World, surely a water pipeline is well within our capability?

When such major questions need answered we have to wonder if the 'majority' vote system is the right way to decide. What if the majorities had been in the low hundreds rather than millions or thousands? Whatever the Government decides and negotiates over the next two years the Brexit and Scottish arguments will never go away. The only chance of the intensity being reduced is if the Scottish independence referendum delivers a status quo result and the UK economy leaps into high gear. I believe both are possible but I wouldn't bet my RBS shares on them.

Certainly would...

Who knows what the future holds

Go back 50 years to 1967 ... No credit cards, mobile phones, satellite TV, digital watches or cameras, no vaping, no computers and just the start of supermarkets.... or channel tunnel or EU.and much more ....

The question is what will be invented in the next 50 years by 2067 ...Will we run out of electricity to power all the electrical devices and future electric cars, will there be a cyber world war, how far will robots take over our jobs and lives and how many less will actually be needed to work ... Will teleportation be invented to travel from one place to another, for the rich of course ... what will be the UK population by then. will UK travel be gridlock in major cities and motorways... or will electric robot cars make it easier even if millions maybe whizzing around.

Will there be trading or pensions by then if less workers are need to pay into them.. robots do need a pension. Drone deliveries ... with maybe hot food dinners....

I had this conversation at the weekend and a group of us came up with amazing ideas and what will be the result in other areas if they happened ...

Your will probably have many thoughts of what 2067 maybe like...

I would like a time machine to have a look...but that may take a little longer..

Keep smiling all... lets have some of your thoughts...

Yes it is media generated rubbish half the time... Who really cares who says what.. It is action that needs reporting not waffle and talk about thinking of taking action...

It gets really boring to me ..... the constant ****ging off each other, like school children...

After 50 plus years of it..... and with the past 10 years it has really stepped up with the all Media technology available today... with anything with a screen....

How times have changed... When we only had the Newspaper to read.. Now instant news throw at us by the second ..... I wonder if in 50 years time we will know the news before it happens... Just a crazy thought..

Have good day... All
