Edit: and seriously people are replying calling me crazy. Lmao. You can literally see it happening in major cities. Los Angeles, the middle class is leaving. Chicago, the middle class is leaving. So who is left? The super rich, and the ultra poor, who the super rich use as cheap labor. It’s not hard to realize this. And no, I’m not a progressive, and no I’m not poor. 🙄

TheWisherable : 50 years from now, it won't be THAT different. Most of the things that have wide spread use now, were invented and were penetrated into the market 50-80 years ago. Any new technology that has takers now will just have a wide spread market in the future. Electric cars, VR might become more common, machine assistance will be more common etc etc That's it. There won't be miracle ai/robots or Elysium type division of social classes as some seem to imagine. You're just watching too many sci-fi movies. Reality is a lil slower and lil bland. Not that great, nor that bad.
