>>66704603Coming up, Google state gubernatorial election coverage is getting tight as A43s new algorithm is gaining traction amongst voters. While on the surface level, A43s policy positions may appear identical to A44s, but voter sentiment seems to be increasingly polarised by the presentation of each AIs policy position. Both AIs remain in favour of buying out the state of Texas as envisioned by the states founder, the great governor A01. As Google states parent company is once again breaking new highs, this vision is becoming more likely, making it the third to be bought out. We have Senator Bieber to comment...

In international news, the Welsh-English Union has lowered the age of consent to 13. Prime Minister Admed al-Mustafi called the move "long overdue" and "a needed concession to English values," warning that ongoing protests over the controversial policy will be "punished to the full extent of the law, as the hate crimes they are." The Free Scottish Republic is expected to adopt a similar policy following a referendum later this month.

>>66710015You didn't say why they were wrong?
>>66710040Yeah. There are people working on resurrecting mammoths right now. 80 years ago we didn't even know what DNA looked like.>>66710068There have been a bunch of children born at Antarctic research stations, so it's not mutually exclusive.Turns out people do a lot of fucking when they're stuck in a confined environment for long periods of time.
>>66704603>positive headlinesUnlikely. I'm not sure what people will be fighting over, but they'll probably still be screeching shrilly about it.

>>66710015The brutal oppression of the English kingdom by their dictatorial Irish imperialist masters continues in what one one Paddy O'Brien calls "payback bitch".On other news King Arthur arose from his grave to reveal Nasu was right all along and that he's actually a blonde woman with green eyes. King Arthur then began an ethnic cleaning campaign to return Britain to it's rightful owners and no Angle, Saxon, Norman, et al will escape her wrath. This came just days after the breaking discovery that monstergirls were real but we fucked them into extinction during prehistory.

>>66710408Not really, because medical research is more complex than >it worked on a mouse its g2g!You really dont want to start implanting proliferative cells into people with reckless abandon without some long term demonstrations of safety and show it wont inevitably turn into cancer or something, and mice and rats are not good cancer development models. Whenever anyone says "10 years away" in medicine, multiply it by 3 and thats generally more realistic. The pro life bunch may be a handicap here, but there are sources for those cells in Europe and Asia and they've run into roadblocks as well, namely that its not easy to make stem cells actually do what you want them to or control their efficacy.
>>66710857For the last time, just because the Sami took over Scandinavia and claim to free it from the evils of the white man doesn't mean they're not white.
>>66710158It's not that things take more time, it's that people are bad at predicting the course things are going to take.We didn't get a moon base for the same reason we didn't get flying cars: people think they want them but in practice they would suck.2100 is eighty years from now. Eighty years ago it was 1939. A lot has changed since 1939, just in different ways than they might have expected.Space exploration is only starting to happen today because it's become accessible as a vanity project for billionaires. In eighty years the barrier to entry will probably be low enough that someone will have started a research station there, if only to show that they could.This isn't a prediction of giant martian cities. It's just that as things become easier, someone's going to pick the low hanging fruit, even if it isn't vitally important.
>>66708465Came here to post almost exactly this.
>>66711429>It's just that as things become easier, someone's going to pick the low hanging fruit, even if it isn't vitally important.Just like colonizing the new world. A lot of colonies were joint-ventures not state projects.
>>66704603>Yellowstone CalderaDrill a series of small holes that breach the caldera simultaneously around the edge of the park, allow the pressure to bleed in multiple places instead of bursting all at once.

>>66710015Not an argument Ahmed.
>>66711197We don't even need embryonic cells anymore. obstacles created by pro-life groups forced the development of alternative sources and led to the development of techniques that allow us to induce pluripotency far earlier than they probably would have been developed otherwise, because even though that's far more useful clinically it's far less convenient for researchers.

>>66709934The Second American Civil War has been going on for five years now, and as we enter the second half of this year we take a moment to remember those lost in the great famines of New York after right wing terrorists destroyed all bridges and roads into the once Great Apple. Even to this day, the full death count is unknown, and the city is considered lost behind the great barrier fence that was erected to keep the plague from spreading. In other news, the Great Conflagration of California is on its third year burn, with over fifty percent of the state currently lost to the fire. Former Vice President Al Gore can still be heard screaming about how this will melt the polar icecaps from his hospital bed. however, the Ash Cloud has caused below average temperatures through the south west for the last year.Mexico's campaign to reclaim their lost lands continues for the second year in a row. Despite local support in the Reconcista eras, however, mass casualties are still common among Mexican troops, due to attacks by both the cartels, and former US residents fighting back.And finally, after four years, the tide of refuges and reports of ethnic cleansing from the Rebel State of "New Europa" are down to a trickle of what they once were. The stubborn Terrorist Empire, founded with the goal of "a safe space for the white race" has so far managed to stave off all attempts by what remains of the US government to reclaim the large sections of the mid-west that they have taken over. We fear this means that their ethnic cleansing is almost complete, but we pray as ever that the government under President Cortez will be able to reclaim our lost states and bring these horrible criminals to justice, and remove this white blight from our glorious and diverse nation.This has been Latrine Jones with your news.

"Now, many of you have walked down to the meat and fish aisle of your supermarket and have bought premium meat products with packaging with the words "Now with 5% real meat!" or 10% or 7.5% on it. Now, it's no secret that the vast amount of meat consumed by the UK is actually vat grown and arranged into appropriate forms by meat-based 3d printing factories across the country, with a proportionally small amount of real meat sourced from one of the few remaining livestock farms left in the country. But our investigations reveal that the actual proportion of real meat contained inside this, Premium Teslidl Beef Mince which claims on it's packaging to contain 5% real meat, may in fact be as low as 0.3%.

A large group of men are suing the government for wrongful classification as virgins, since they have had intercourse with their "waifu bots." High level legal teams have claimed the suit may just go all the way to the Supreme Court, since the law's ambiguous wording does not specify a partner must be a legal person.A counter protest was organized by Stacy Smith, who's slogans are "#HaveSex" and "#lolIncels"

It's doubtful that there would be any large scale wars any more. What will fuck us up in the end is nature, because Earth just can't support this, and issues of social inequality stemming from overpopulation and scarcity finally escalating far enough that societies start to fracture.
>>66743985>but things really aren't that bad politically. It's doubtful that there would be any large scale wars any more.unfortunately, you're incredibly wrong. I don't want to derail the thread, so i'll do this in story form.>Towards the start of the 21st century, humanity turned its gaze away from the stars and instead looked inwards, seeking to make a more just and equal society. At least on the surface. Social programs were brought forth, along with social movements. the "oppressed" were searched for and elevated to bring them into social equality. First, the Black Community, then later when "race" had been looked to, sexual qualities. First women, then homosexuals, then later on transgenders and towards the end of that, pedophilia was looked too.>however, as more and more oppressed peoples were looked to, the traditional fabrics of society were torn ever more asunder. While this was certainly a net gain for small parts of society, larger parts of society were pushed more and more to accept things that within their own lifetimes had once been completely unacceptable. While many attempted to be tolerant, more and more even the most tolerant found themselves being pushed to their limits.>Congruent to these events, massive waves of immigration began hitting the most developed countries, bring with them social and health problems not seen in generations. Nations once regarded as peaceful and prosperous, now found themselves far more violent and destitute. Victims of this new violence, and those who protested it, quickly found themselves being attacked, silenced, and even arrested for voicing their discontent and suffering.>Things came to ahead when the new Tech Oligarchy, along with certain political factions, began to actively silence voices not just critical of the situation, but those who mentioned the critics, or even merely mentioned events "uncomfortable" to those in charge. >cont.
>>66743985>>66744314>cont.>As the tech companies increased their stranglehold on communications, claiming to be both "platforms" and "publishers" at the same time, certain factions of the political elites in the former USA worked to "restore american democracy" by trying in their state's electoral college votes with the results of the popular vote.>This caused a dramatic disenfranchisement of voters, as the votes within an individual state would no longer matter. Previously, a state's citizens would vote and there electoral votes would be given in favor of the majority of that state, but after the shift none of that mattered. tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, saw their votes be completely ignored in favor of the mass population votes in states like California and New York. >While historians are still unsure what was the first spark of the second American civil war, it is the believe of this scholar that, stripped of all ability to voice their views and feelings on the communication hubs, and now denied their voices at the ballet box, large swaths of the American populace turned to what has historically been the last choice for any group of people to make their voices heard when all peaceful means are denied them. Violence, under these conditions, was inevitable. Stripped of their first amendment rights, and the primary privilege of citizenship, feeling as if they were no longer part of their nation except as punching bags, replaceable cogs, and second class citizens, they looked to their history and turned to war.>What started as a national conflict, however, soon spread. While American Imperialism was often derided, few realized how integral to world peace the States had been. As US troops went back home, either to fight for or against the government, other nations saw openings, and citizens saw how weak their governments were, sparking further revolutions. The Neo-French revolution is recorded to be just as bloody as their first.>cont.

>>66744314>>66744431>Few records remain of what happened in the United Kingdom. Germany is of a questionable nature. Russia expanded slightly, but the Polish and Austrian nations, already prepared by holding off millions of migrants, were able to defend themselves. Israel, without its greatest ally, quickly found itself fighting a constant defensive war, pitting technology against numbers in a horrific stalemate for decades. >These new wars, especually the american one, saw dramatic effects elsewhere. The primary provider of aid, when the food ran out, so did the peace. It is believed that the entire white population of south africa has been eradicated, and while reports from the continent are hard to come by even decades after the events, what is easily known is the plagues that came from that land, along with tales of horrific warfare. Once the most populated place on earth, those brave explorers lucky enough to return speak of what is a veritable ghost land, with incredibly violent and desperate roving bands of warriors to whom the concept of mercy is unknown. (see figure 46.A for image of the "bone fields.)>What was once regarded as perhaps the most peaceful times in human history quickly devolved into some of the most horrific in violence and bloodshed. It is a constant reminder that humanity, no matter how tamed it may appear, still possesses the savage hearts of their ancestors and it can be awoken with enough fire and pounding. Peace is a pleasant silk glove ever covering the iron fist of war within. It is a warning to treat our citizens well, and one we should do well to remember.>Excerpt from the preface of the book "Forging the Future, a History of the Foundations of New Europa," by James Stewart, 2146.

I'm guessing you've not heard what's happening over on youtube this month, where a ton of channels have been demonetized and some are even being outright removed, several of which have absolutely nothing to do with politics, all because some gay hispanic guy got salty over some other dude calling him a gay hispanic. and i mean honestly, how well do you think society is going to keep holding together when people start seriously getting harassed and arrested for refusing to support pedophilia? how well do you think society is even going to take that (it's already being pushed, btw). When you're told "you're a fucking bigot because you won't let this person fuck your 11 year old child" and even get arrested for a hatecrime when you try and prevent a "date." How well do you think people are going to handle it? People are already throwing fits over transgenders being in mixed locker rooms with children. Hell, a great example is that bakery guy, who is being sued for the third time because he refuses to bake a transition cake or something. Where are his equal rights? Where are his rights at all? After all, youtube can apparently say "we don't like this milk-toast conservative on our platform, he's out" because they're a "private corporation" but some dude who bakes cakes can't even have the same right? Fucking hell, you guys are here on /tg/ but you don't even have the first idea of dystopian fiction, and you're in a "future news" thread and you don't even have the first thought about what even are current events, but you wanna bitch about "muh /pol/" like a couple fucking retards.

>>66750856>Republicans in California have the same agenda as the ones in Alabama.>Massively disparate groups, arranged across a giant country need and want the exact same things just because they have generally right of center viewsLet me put it this way. I'm Canadian. Our parliament is split up largely by population. The majority of the population lives in the two large, eastern provinces. The result being that at least half the time, when I vote, the election has already been called. Every party caters to Eastern needs at the expense of Western ones. There is a growing dissatisfaction in the west over this issue, talks of separation, or at least strong arming the other provinces using resource royalties to get what we want.A big country needs a system that represents the needs of everyone, not just the largest voting block, or you'll have a push to find ways to be represented that aren't at the ballot box

>>66750856>fun fact: there are more registered republican voters in california than there are people in alabama. The idea that the electoral college preserves the power of the vote is a fucking joke.jesus, no wonder shit's so fucked if this is the level of average education.number of votes per party is not what is supposed to matter. that is why we do not use popular votes for elections of presidents. each state has it's own environment and its own needs. The people who live in Alabama have a different life and situation than the people in California, or New York. There are more people living in California than Navada, but a great deal of California's water comes from Navada. if each state has a voice, then Navada can decide how much water it lets CA take. But if it's purely a population vote, you'd see exactly what has been happening in CA, where the cities vote to strip the local area of water regardless of the needs of those lower population areas.New york has significantly more population than the mid-west, but the midwest produces the majority of US food. Swapping to a pure popular vote, those midwest residents would be little more than slaves producing food for their masters, not equal citizens with equal voices, because New York would dominate them in terms of voters and a pure popular vote would see only the biggest group being given what they want. Sure, there are more republicans in CA than AL, but those Republicans haven't won any meaningful elections in decades. Dumping the EC for a popular vote only spreads that problem to more states and strips more people of their political voice and political representation.
>>66751981But how are you supposed to get at the oil if there's a giant radioactive sandstorm on top of it and no local labor left alive to sorta-enslave in industrial facilities?

>>66751968>The election for president always comes down to 2 candidates in the US anyways, so it's got shit-all to do with representation.i'm amazed one man can put so much fail into a single post.the needs of the citizens of different states are completely different. The Electoral College forces the president to try and cater to the needs of those states in order to secure their votes. Swapping it over to a popular vote would mean that any presidential candidate would campain only in the largest population centers (new york, california, texas) and promise those citizens what they wanted, and everyone else would have to just fucking shove it up their asses. So a candidate could go to California and say "you're having a drought, but if i'm elected I will see that there is enough water for everyone!" and then states like arizona and navada (who provide water to CA) could watch their states be stripped of water to please the californians. That same candidate could go to New York and promise them whatever they wanted, and the rest of the mid-west and new england could watch as they were stripped of resources/rights. And then he's got enough votes to laugh off the rest of the country.Sure, maybe he'll be nice and offer stuff that makes the rest of the west coast states happy, and maybe a few of the east coast, but then fuck everyone else. they can give, he will take, and give to those who voted for him. And it's not like they've got enough votes to stop him.
>>66752100So great was the man's cuckokdry, that he could not abide others dreaming of a world without his bull.
>>66751968These anons, >>66752032 >>66752109 have it rightIn Canada, candidates for Prime Minister campaign in the Eastern provinces almost exclusively. They cater to their needs, give them what they want. Fuck, Quebec has enough provincial exceptions because of ther "unique culture" and the shitfit they flung over separating that they're practically their own country anyway. Meanwhile, the province that makes most of the money in the country, Alberta, is openly mocked and forgotten by the Prime Minister. The oil money that keeps the rest of the country turning is blocked from being shipped. Even in short times, Alberta is obligated to to send a portion of its revenue to the other provinces to keep them afloat.This isn't just pick a team, this is about who the leader of your country has to listen to in order to be the leader again. If its everyone, roughly equally, then he can't piss off anybody. If its only a select few, then those people are going to get the better treatment.

His satellite was a manned space station where technicians would stay busy changing burned out vacuum tubes and relays, and never mind what all that space radiation was doing to their bone marrow.

The Secretary-General hoped China and its Martian colonists might be reconciled, but the colonists insisted on complete independence from Beijing and refused to return all but a handful property and finances to chinese companies, nor will they allow new chinese entry into their terriotry. Shortly after the General Assembly was convened, but it swiftly voted to reject a proposal to recommend sanctions on the Martian colonists, although US and EU officials have indicated they may refrain from economic interaction for the time being. The Secretary-General asked all parties to remain calm and avoid what could be the Solar System's first extraterrestrial war.

Contact has officially been made with the inhabitants of the castle which suddenly appeared in Koontenai National Forest, Montana yesterday evening. Though official information is sparse at this time, the leader of the inhabitants appears to be a large, lizard-like humanoid by the name of Adam Mouser. Other known non-humans among the recently arrived also include at least two automatons of unknown type and an amorphous, reportedly 'slime-like' life form. Mouser agreed to meet with a small number of reporters early this morning in an impromptu press conference, though he requested that certain details be omitted from later broadcast due to privacy concerns. Perhaps most shockingly, during the interview Mouser claimed to be a former resident of Carrollton, Texas and expressed apparently genuine eagerness to see the town again after what he called "a long, long time away." The conference ended abruptly only half an hour after it began when Mouser asked after one reporter for the current date. Upon the reporter's answer, Mouser reportedly replied "this was expected, but it is still deeply regrettable" before calling an immediate end to the conference. According to authorities, details given by Mouser during the interview appear to match closely with an open case of a middle aged Texas man by the same name who was reported missing on January 5th, 2034, nearly seventy years ago. We'll have more on this story as it develops.

It also marks the one year anniversary of her marriage to Deja Thor, notable hero of the Martian Independence War as well as the second child born on Mars. The wedding and coronation ceremony shall long be remembered as the happiest day for the Martian people since the first colonists settle our glorious world. In her speech today comemorating the victories and the fallen, Warlord Carter reminded us all that though we are free, across the vast stretches of space, hungering eyes yet gaze upon our world, and we should be ever vigilant lest they return once more.As ever, we pray to Mars, for whom our planet is named, and who has guided us to the salvation of our world, to watch over Warlord Carter, and her husband, the beloved prince of our capital, Barsoom!

Mass Driver Accident Kills Over 2,000APR - Ibadan, NigeriaThe historical first delivery of ore from the Zhou Enlai Lunar Mining Complex ended in tragedy today when a targeting error resulted in the payload slamming into the outskirts of the city of Ibadan in Nigeria. Thousands died in the initial blast that was compared to a small nuclear bomb as the payload impacted in a sparsely populated suburb, while thousands more were left disoriented, homeless, and without power or water in the wake of the explosion.Chinese officials have halted all other deliveries from the Zhou Enlai Complex and are working with both the United Nations and officials from McMoran Global Steel to determine the cause of the error. McMoran Global Steel was responsible for the construction of the mass driver, winning the contract from Page Industries in a heated bidding war."Obviously we took the utmost precautions in building the Zhou Enlai driver," said spokesperson Sean Murphy. "But something has gone terribly wrong. Our only real response at this point is to offer our condolences and aid to the people of Ibadan, and insure that such an event never occurs again."

>>66776097>https://www.brookings.edu/blog/fixgov/2017/02/22/misrepresentation-in-the-house/Not true, firstly there's the most recent elections discrepancy between who won the presidency and who won the popular vote. Secondly, the balance of votes between Republican and Democrat in congress is 50.6%-49.4% while the representation is 55.4%-44.6% so if anything, the tyranny of majority you so fear is made worse. Not to mention that misrepresentation allows blue states to stay blue as well so characterizing popular representation as a power grab doesn't hold scrutiny either.

You have a smattering of right-wing militias (who are not one bloc and do not all agree with each other and are liable to shoot each other as much as the gov or left) and a disarmed, disorganized left.That's not a civil war. That's just - the collapse of state power and disintegration, leading to a confederate republic at best.
