What STFH situation or situations are you most fearful of?
This is a discussion on What STFH situation or situations are you most fearful of? within the SHTF in Prophesy forums, part of the General Discussion category; My latest fear would be Democrats take the White House and both houses of Congress in 2020....
My latest fear would be Democrats take the White House and both houses of Congress in 2020.
I'm late to the party, so I won't read the other posts until I make mine so as to not be influenced by them. I'll just tell you my opinion:

It isn't socialism, communism, nor the fact that Muslims (whose religion is antithetical to our foundational principles) are beginning to occupy elective office up to. and including, the presidency. Liberals, leftists. Democrats, Social Democrats, and even Bernie Sanders have the potential to take our guns and when they do, I don't think people will fight back.
When the people rebelled and tossed tea in the harbor, it was not the amount of the tax, it was the principle. So, when Donnie the Chump Trump outlawed bump stocks while violating THREE provisions in the Constitution, our reaction was to do nothing. My biggest fear now is that Americans have been dumbed down and programmed to the point that no insult, no attack on the public Liberties, and no assault on their natural, inherent, God given, unalienable, absolute, and irrevocable Rights is worthy of public outrage. So, in my view, the excrement done interacted with the electric oscillating device and we are in the process of going down right now. The takeover is in progress and there is NO resistance.
At best, If those suffering from TDS don't get their wall, a minor skirmish will ensue, but will quickly be repelled to be followed by outlawing weapons AND gladly signed into law by Trump. It will be "necessary" after all and like the people in Australia and Great Britain, Americans will go along. If anyone wants to come and take the U.S. - say like China, we won't resist. If we won't stand shoulder to shoulder and defend the Constitution now, what's going to change when the liberals get the Senate?

For the record Inor, I wasn't claiming that we currently have the technological capability to create an advanced AI at this point in time. What I am saying is that it is inevitable that our computational power will continue to get more and more advanced. There are people working on trinary systems that mimic the behavior of human neurons. Binary code has 0 or 1. Trinary has 0, 1, 2. Human neurons have three states that are physically possible. Not firing, firing, and getting ready to fire. Every single one of your neurons has only these three states. If there were a computer capable of moving with sensory inputs that was designed to behave like a human brain, it could end up being really dangerous to humanity.
Is it the stuff of science fiction to talk about it as if it is already here? Sure. It's not "science fiction" to talk about something that may happen. "That's never gonna happen" isn't a very good argument. The same thing could be said about pandemics or EMPs or CMEs. The fact that something hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it will never happen. Depending on your age it may be less or more likely during your lifetime.
There is a famous old twilight zone episode I believe that features a man using his "super advanced" home computer (the size of a whole room) to print out a newspaper and check the weather and work from home. These were considered scifi concepts in the sixties and early seventies. Nobody back then could have even fathomed the communications and computational powers that exist in your phone today. The whole world would appear to be a scifi show to a time traveller. In the next 40 years it is likely there will be humanoid robots designed to work in our homes and fields as robotic slaves, doing all the hand work that we do ourselves today.
The mechanical tech is already almost there. There is a commercially sold robot chef that can cook 2000 recipes using 2 robotic hands. There already is a commercially sold robotic garden that can do everything but pick the produce, and they are working on pickers with robotic hands for things that bruise easily like tomatoes etc that can't be harvested with traditional harvesters. I don't think it's scifi to believe that robots may become an actual threat during my lifetime or the lifetime of the next couple generations. With military robotics, they are programming robots to have a survival instinct. If they make military ground drones too smart, then we face the terrifying prospect of machines smarter than us with survival instincts programmed in. Look, it's not top on my list. But it's on there for a reason.
Actually we do have the technology. She was officially made a Saudi citizen a while back.

Think Modern China, where your face is used to track your movements in real time. Your private messages simply discussing current events get everyone involved in the discussion arrested. All of these things are accepted as facts of life and even worse seen as the only way to ensure "Societal Harmony" in a mostly homogeneous state that is desperate to stay in a time long passed and is trying desperately NOT to change with the rest of the world.
It looks like the big democrat ghettos are becoming unmanageable for the cops. Not sure how to cure or contain the madness unless it be some kind of Martial Law Plan sorta like the Guvnor of VA is planning to take the AR's away from the red necks. hmmm
