would you die of shock after a trip on a time machine?


"But here’s the interesting thing—if he then went back to 1750 and got jealous that we got to see his reaction and decided he wanted to try the same thing, he’d take the time machine and go back the same distance, get someone from around the year 1500, bring him to 1750, and show him everything. And the 1500 guy would be shocked by a lot of things—but he wouldn’t die. It would be far less of an insane experience for him, because while 1500 and 1750 were very different, they were much less different than 1750 to 2015. "

The rage or race against the machine!! AI and human skills.


" These findings, though preliminary, are a reminder that technology does not necessarily mean doom to all but the highest skilled. The best response to the race against the machines is not to hold the machines back; it is to help the humans jump aboard. "

Germany and the UK and perhaps the EU and even Europe. Revisit this in 2020 and 2030!

China is known to operate a poor system, its people will change it!

The Chinese people will deal with President Xi Jinping like the Russian people will deal with Putin.
All these leaders are interested in is preserving their status quo, they don't like free will in the hands of anyone other than themselves and that why they kill their own markets and economy.


Under Xi Jinping, China is turning back to dictatorship
For decades the debate in Beijing was about the pace of change, not the direction

 Deng famously said China should “hide its light and bide its time” on the world stage and steadfastly refrain from meddling in other countries. Mr Xi sees things very differently and has ordered the party and state apparatus to be far more active abroad in defending China’s interests — as defined by the autocratic party and the people who run it.It is already a sad reality that many people outside China with links to the country — journalists, academics, diplomats, expatriate Chinese businesspeople — would think twice about using a Chinese-owned app like WeChat to send a private message mocking China’s current leader.
