Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development

This 2010 Rockefeller document is composed as though it only hypothetically explores the future development of technology through the lens of 4 scenarios each of varying levels of authoritarian control and public compliance, though there are some noteworthy parallels to our current circumstances that have inspired others to believe that perhaps this was more of a plan than a mere thought exercise, thought the authors are sure to mention that it is not. “Lock Step” is the first scenario discussed in which there emerges a devastating viral pandemic. “Hack Attack” is another of their scenarios. It addresses the dangers of cyber attacks, echoing the modern day warnings of World Economic Forum founder, Klaus Schwab and the recent (as of this writing) Cyber Polygon exercise.
