When I was about 16 years old I went on a long weekend vacation with my girlfriend (at the time) and her family. We went to a little town in extreme Northern Maine known as Limestone. This was a total culture shock to me as, at the time, I was a city guy. Coming to…

The Forgotten. We’re the people you ignore in your daily life. The cashiers, the cooks, the janitors of the world. We are the faceless army of people that fight to survive. We make ourselves slave away every day to make ends meet. We have no security nets, no food, no health care. We are a…

The future of warfare is going to be much different than any of us could ever imagine. I think that if we keep pushing the bounderies of human ability, the next step is mechanical.
If we humans make our world inhospitable and have to fight in wastelands, we humans will need to adapt. To our environment, to our physical needs and abilities. And if cybernetic upgrades are neccesary I do believe that we will do so.
Maybe we will do it willingly. Maybe it will be forced upon us. But I do know that films like Elysuim and Robocop (2014) are a sign of the future.
But it might not be nations we fight. It might be a total civil war, or World War III. And it will be person against person if a WWIII breaks loose.
And we do have http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w40e1u0T1yg&feature=youtube_gdata_player this to worry about.
That can be weaponized in minutes, because we already have automated turrets that can confirm kills up to a mile away. North Korea already has them placed along the DMZ, and they kill people weekly.
But when warfare changes, its drastic and instant. Look at Tokyo and Hiroshima.
And in movies and video games these are kickass and cool. Reality has shown us (or should have by now) that it isn’t.
If drones were to take the human equation out of warfare, Id have no issues with them. But they don’t. They make us look at the inhumanity of war, especially when its a school full of kids and not a terrorist cell blowing up.
We can rage all we want that we need to make sure a mistake like that never happens again, but it will. The Pentagon and DARPA and any other government scan promise better software, and that automated systems are the future.
But it won’t happen. We need a human at the helm of any killing device. Because the human can choose to disobey orders, to feel that gut instinct to not shoot.
Machines can’t. They do as programmed. They do as instructed.
And we need to stop and consider this: is fighting wars that neccessary? Especially if its not an extinction level event like WWII?
What would it take for us to not fight wars? The armed services of all nations standing down, disobeying orders? An alien threat?

In some of this planet’s driest regions, where rainfall is rare or even nonexistent, a few specialized plants and insects have devised ingenious strategies to provide themselves with the water necessary for life: They pull it right out of the air, from fog that drifts in from warm oceans nearby. Now researchers at MIT, working…
