I think we are about to enter a new industrial age.

I think automation will eliminate jobs but unlike previous eras the new jobs will also be automated. I expect governments to struggle with higher unemployment becoming the norm and all the social issues that arise from that.

Predicting the future tends to be futile. In my life i have seen the rise of computers, the internet, mobile phones and social media. I have seen the fall of communism and the rise of Islamic extremism. I didn't see any of this coming and I suspect that goes for most people.

Let me be positive for a moment by comparing the 1970's to today.

Europe - Eastern bloc, Spain, Portugal and Greece were all non democratic. Today largely democratic.

Asia and Latin America largely undemocratic today many countries are economically and politically better off.

Africa and Middle East major social and political issues across both continents. Today patchy improvement some shining examples and some same old same old.

With all the problems we see on the news I still think that overall politically and socially the world is a better today that it was 50 years ago.

Let's hope I am wrong about mass unemployment.

50 years ago only one parent needed to work to keep a family going and still we didn't need mass immigration.

Socially Britain was friendlier kinder and we could leave our front doors open.!

Good news for storage companies though. Back in the 70s, if short of household space, people could safely leave their surplus possessions outside their homes, safe in the certain knowledge that they would remain permanently untouched. Indeed many passers-by would even add to the collection with their own items, as a kindly gesture.

What do we think it was about this particular halcyon period - generally seeming to be held to be from the 30s to the 70s or thereabouts (though I shall be sure to claim it for the 80s myself, as my eyes get misty) - that saw such a decline in houshold break-ins?

Evidently you couldn't leave your doors open prior to this period - otherwise no-one would have needed to invent the door lock - and, as we all accept, the crime threat is now so great we all must have several front doors, each protected with multiple locks, secured fast at all times (even when entering one's own home, which should only ever be safely attempted through a discreet upstairs window under cover of darkness.) And yet during that golden age, if it hadn't been for the climate, there wouldn't have been a door or window to be seen anywhere.

Must have been a grim period for key-cutters, though. Maybe that's why loads of them also do that work with shoes too. Cobblers?

Also around 50yrs ago, due to Nixon cutting the dollars' final ties to gold, all global currency became 'fiat' ie continually worthless due to the inherent inflation.
Mass immigration/globalisation has been used as a weapon to limit this inherent inflation through wage suppression for all hence one average wage being no longer sufficient for one average family.
This deliberately manufactured fiat 'system' implemented by those at the top, the ONLY beneficiaries, died in '08 (a liquidity problem) and died again last September 17th (a far far bigger liquidity problem!)........and just like prior to '08, the MSM said nothing. Cunds.
We now have a faceless 'scapegoat' dragging down all global markets and still no mention of the liquidity problems. What a bloody coincidence and how bloody convenient?

The s*** has finally met the fan. Buckle up.

I think sooner or later a pandemic will resolve this. The classic problem of an expanding world population thats increasingly moving across borders - Sooner or later we'll be looking at a Spainish Flu equivilant, or worse. Spainish Flu killed 50m people world wide, in an era where mass transport and rapid transport was next to non-existant. In the modern age, something like that, could be spreading thoughout the world in days rather than weeks, rendering any attempt at quarentine redundent.

Jamiemartin the prophet. I wonder what he was doing in China last year.

Unfortunately, there is a huge rise in crime. Burglaries are barely even investigated today. In the 70s if someone in your area was burgled, everyone knew about it and would help out.
Today, there will have been several in your road/estate last week. Not that you would have batted an eye lid as it has just become the norm.
Notice the small side columns in the local paper with lists of burglaries and thefts. You don't even read them anymore - just an accepted pert if life now, apparently.

So you COULDN'T leave your door open in the 70s??? This is all very confusing.

All we know for certain is that the wilful idiocy of those bygone years, with fools everywhere refusing to take even the most basic of home security measures, has invited and made inevitable this current woebegone age when we're now more surprised to find we haven't been burgled than have and where the only possessions anywhere are those of burlgars, in a state of perpetual burgled circulation.

We should just get rid of front doors altogether and finally put an end to this misery. Simply decide on your favourite - inside or out - and stay there. Sensible policies for a better Britain.

Na, capitalism defeats this kind of thing everytime.....too much money in vaccines.

However, there is always the possibility of the super killer....super hard to kill/cure, super contagious and long lasting and super fatal.....that's coming down the pipe at some stage, either by design or by random mutation.

But capitalism kills 99.9 percent of all known germs.....dead.....and it'll be the same for this one too.

A sticking plaster, sadly.

This will deter only very short burglars and before we know it evolution will see us having to somehow deny wave after wave of giant 'super-burglars'.

(I should have sussed it is not a workable solution - when quoting your post, your image description has a very long title, including the phrase "fartworkimages".)
