If anyone should be able to decide who gets to live on earth, it is Jeff Bezos.
He’s very rich, meaning he must be highly good and moral.
Humanity will move most industry into space and allow only a select few to remain on our planet, which will be turned into a natural resort, according to self-funded space explorer Jeff Bezos.
The Amazon billionaire enthusiastically shared his predictions for what human civilization will look like in the future – with him personally helping to bring that future closer – during a talk at the annual Ignatius Forum in Washington, DC.
He expects vast cylindrical space colonies spinning to create artificial gravity for millions of residents to take over most industrial production. Meanwhile, Earth will be turned into a natural reserve with restricted access similar to US national parks today.
“This place is special, we can’t ruin it,” the founder of Amazon said of our planet.
“Millions of people will move from Earth to space over time. And that’s the vision of Blue Origin – millions of people working in space,” he said, referring to his own firm.
“Over centuries, most or many of the people will be born in space. It will be their first home. They will be born on these colonies, they will live on these colonies. They may visit Earth the way you would visit Yellowstone National Park,” Bezos predicted.
None of these people talking about saving the planet ever go into anywhere natural. Most of them have never even been camping. It’s very strange, this obsession with the natural world. It’s similar I guess to ancient peoples talking about the sacred nature of the sky. None of them ever went to the sky.
Interestingly for some, Bezos, who is nearly 60, talks as if he will be personally making these decisions hundreds of years in the future.
Some must find that odd, no?
Well, actually, we’ve been telling you this: these people think they are going to live forever.
They’re planning to become immortal cyborgs.
