I've seen a number of videos like this, that show the scientific and cultural development that will occur over the next 20 to 40 years.
Not necessarily all that's predicted will happen, but much of it seems like a clear path. That within 20 years, artificialintelligence will develop to the point that they are more intelligent than humans, and humans will require chip implants to function in society.
Resistance is futile!
This guy David Icke is interesting, but he's also something of a Michael Moore-type highly opinionated conspiracy theorist. But an insightful perspective of the general direction technology and culture are moving.
I envision this as a topic where similar other videos and stories of evolving technology can be posted.
The part comparing the two envisioned futures of Huxley and Orwell contrasted was the most insightful. An Orwellian model for authoritarianism, as in Orlwell's 1984, or in nations like Russia, China or Cuba. As contrasted with a future authoritarian culture controlled by buying the public's loyalties with hedonistic pleasures and amusements, as in Huxley's Brave New World. We're certainly seeing the formation of the latter, with the legalization of Marijuana and other drugs, and the willing surrender of privacy for the use of social media and cel phones.

I went to Youtube and saw I'd been logged out. When I clicked the log-in button this screen appeared.

No clarity on what I said that amounted to a violation.
I contacted them immediately and got this response about 8AM this morning, about an hour after I contacted them at their provided contact link. Saying this:

It's very weird because they don't even say specifically it's related to my Youtube account. Only this response clarifies they are Youtube. But that's the only site other than RKMB I've gone to in the last 24 hours, where I've posted any political content.
The ambiguous wording gives them enormous wiggle room to do whatever they want. And I don't even know why. Presumaably because I posted pro-Trump views, and expressed opinions ever so slightly to the right of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

That's all the explanation I got, no ability to appeal, not even the slightest clue what I did that amounted to "suspended because of a perceived violation of either the Google Terms of Service or product-specific Terms of Service."
My belief is I was suspended only for posting pro-Trump conservative views. And their reluctance to give the slightest clarity speaks of their wrongness, not mine.
Tucker Carlson has discussed this often. It's the Orwellian attempt to silence and deny social media access to one side of the political spectrum. And as Carlson and his guests have cited, that could deny Republicans 15 million votes in the next election. The far-Left has a monopoly on its control of social media.
