Our Cups Runneth Over
Future Predictions for 2018 by Ernest Hancock
(Publisher of FreedomsPhoenix.com)
It's difficult for me to argue whether humanity's future is a cup half empty or half full when it's sitting at the bottom of the Marianas Trench in an ocean of opportunity. And while we are thinking in 3 dimensional terms, look up. Limitless possibilities await us and no institutions claim a monopoly of force 100km above sea level "(Anarchy is only 62 miles away").
Since 2005, FreedomsPhoenix has archived news and events from a libertarian/anarchist's perspective (Category indexed since 2005 / Newsletter archive since 2007). We intentionally posted the perspectives of those we disagreed with so that we could directly compare our advocacies with theirs and demonstrate what we thought was a superior ideology.
For every technology that has been weaponized, there are countless possibilities and pursued benefits to life on Earth. For every fear filled bucket of concerns, there are oceans of options for the most isolated and undiscovered minds in the remotest areas of the globe.
I know of the impact of comparing and debating the issues of collectivization/centralization vs decentralization/individual liberty for the benefit of anyone paying attention, but I'm increasingly convinced that we are entering an era of inspiration and imagination. The freeing aspects of technologies that serve the interests of individuals are exponentially increasing and I have an ever increasing desire to purge my mind of 'negative waves' broadcasts by the fear mongers.
At the end of 2017, there is about 50% of the Earth's population without access to the Internet. This is about to dramatically change.
ANY ideology, product, business or system that doesn't plan for and support Earth's population having access to the accumulated knowledge of humanity in not too many years will become free-market 'road kill' as logic, reason and overwhelming evidence lights a path for Generation Next.
All efforts to divert individuals' attention and resources to institutions via force and fear are destined to fail at an ever increasing rate. Oh, there will definitely be massive efforts to herd people like livestock in anticipation of 'harvesting', but they are increasingly short lived and are exposed for what they are,… slavery.
Massive economic shifts and cyclic events have already added to the general understanding of reality for billions of individual minds. And what should we expect when this number of minds double and information is available less censored, faster and peer vetted without surveillance?
FreedomsPhoenix.com has featured an index called Top Tech News where we have chronologically listed new technologies of impact. From this index, we have selected those stories that highlight the uses of technologies that serve the decentralized options for individuals in several separated categories listed on PiratesWithoutBorders.
PiratesWithoutBorders is a fun vehicle for the promotion of decentralization as a philosophy and to discover supporting technologies. This philosophy is detailed with Letters of Captain Marque. Enjoy.
The foundation for our 2018 efforts have been under construction for decades in anticipation of a decentralized communication network. Our supporters have joined us in our effort to ride the launch of humanity's exponential growth to reach our ever expanding potential. But we recognized a decade ago that investments in the current Social Media structure was counter to our philosophy and our resources were directed to the accumulation of content saved on our servers ready to populate a decentralized network. Over 200,000 headlines and thousands of original articles and thousands of original videos and radio interviews have been archived in anticipation of avoiding the Memory Hole.
I am very encouraged by the inevitability of me (or my Avatar) being able to compete in the free-market of ideas on an open and level field. The 'enslavers' have had so many advantages for so long, just to maintain any relevance in world events, that a level playing field will make it seem as though 'The Game' is rigged in our favor.
Tools increasing productivity will increasingly be available to every individual on the planet and at lower and lower costs, making coercive institutions irrelevant. And when the next half of the world's population becomes aware of these products, services and philosophies the trajectory of humanity will only be accurately anticipated by those that bet long on the insurmountable desire of every individual to pursue their own happiness,… and that's where we come in.
Inspiration by being an example of what is possible and how, will bring hope where it is needed, and thus requested, most.
It has been 30 years since my family committed our efforts to free as many minds as possible and we have been prepping for what I think is waiting for us in 2018.
The concept for FreedomsPhoenix was born in 1996 with the understanding that when Video could be posted and viewed by anyone on the Internet, we would launch the effort. The next stage would take place when those Videos could not be censored or eliminated. Well, I believe that 2018 will be the year that this option will be wide spread.
In anticipation of this new paradigm, I would recite slogans to remind our readers and listeners of what I anticipated. "It won't happen all at once, but it will happen overnight". What I mean by this is that the news will be filled with coercive institutional efforts to control people via fear and force, but that in the span of even a single day there will be a general understanding of what humanity has been burdened with all of this time,... and rejected
I am of the opinion that there will be enough individuals intellectually, physically and emotionally prepared to inspire a revolution of general opinion. Oh,... and don't be surprised if we discover that we truly are connected to each other in a real way.
I am of the opinion that, "In the End Freedom Always Wins,… It Just Gets Really Messy First". Well, I'm increasingly encouraged by supporting evidence that it may not even get that messy. And, not for very long for those willing to embrace decentralization as a life philosophy.
What percentage of 3 billion people newly exposed to freely competing ideas will openly choose self-determination, freedom of thought, non-aggression and the concept of self ownership? Well, I'm certain it's a much larger number than the enslavers are comfortable with.
This letter isn't a prediction as much as it is a time stamp. A declaration of what is already happening and a hope that you'll enjoy the ride along with others of like mind.

"I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid... you're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you." - Neo
