How did man communicate back in the caveman days from cave to cave? And how about early Native American times; did they really use smoke signals like in the movies? And then there was the spread of the Persian Empire, taking over one country after another. How did they keep in touch with their troops? And how ancient do the 1950s sound right now? Black-and-white televisions; rabbit-ear antennae! Our civilization has soared technologically beyond belief. We are moving so fast that our screen time is more important than physical activity just to keep up with the cutting edge.
As the upward spiral advances, any country’s security is at risk with the world powers dominating technology and using it to rattle their sabers. Man will always expand his boundaries when given the opportunity. Enough is never enough — that’s our nature.
Nuclear war is closer to reality with new leaders expressing themselves. The race in space is heating up… The media isn’t helping with all their chatter about how our power grids could be taken down by Russia or China. And North Korea can’t be taken lightly with their maneuvering around long-range missiles that can reach us.
Are we heading toward destroying each other just to actualize the technology we have? China takes out our power grid, Russia takes out theirs, and we take Russia’s power grid down. And then what? Maybe ISIS gets a foothold in D.C. and levels it while all our leaders are busy arguing over control of something.
Maybe we go back to the 19th century again because life as we knew it was without power, without the Internet and without world politics. Technology becomes dead with no catalyst to operate it. There are no more satellites watching everyone’s moves. Refrigeration is gone because it takes power. Television becomes obsolete as does anything Bluetooth. Survivors have to go back to a time they know little about and carve out a life of hunting for protein and growing things to sustain life.
