Pentagon Video Warns of “Unavoidable” Dystopian Future for World’s Biggest Cities


The Pentagon talks of the “dystopian” megacities in 2030, while Agenda 21, now renamed Agenda 2030, is intended to push people into these very same megacities. That says a lot about what the Powers That Be think of the common people. First force them out of the countryside, where they have the chance to survive, into dystopian megacities rife with violence from gangs and competing minorities, where no one has a chance. Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll stay in my rural environment and grow my own food and survive with fellow survivalists.  – Shorty Dawkins

The year is 2030. Forget about the flying cars, robot maids, and moving sidewalks we were promised. They’re not happening. But that doesn’t mean the future is a total unknown.

According to a startling Pentagon video obtained by The Intercept, the future of global cities will be an amalgam of the settings of “Escape from New York” and “Robocop” — with dashes of the “Warriors” and “Divergent” thrown in. It will be a world of Robert Kaplan-esque urban hellscapes — brutal and anarchic supercities filled with gangs of youth-gone-wild, a restive underclass, criminal syndicates, and bands of malicious hackers.

At least that’s the scenario outlined in “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” a five-minute video that has been used at the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations University. All that stands between the coming chaos and the good people of Lagos and Dhaka (or maybe even New York City) is the U.S. Army, according to the video, which The Intercept obtained via the Freedom of Information Act.

The video is nothing if not an instant dystopian classic: melancholy music, an ominous voiceover, and cascading images of sprawling slums and urban conflict. “Megacities are complex systems where people and structures are compressed together in ways that defy both our understanding of city planning and military doctrine,” says a disembodied voice. “These are the future breeding grounds, incubators, and launching pads for adversaries and hybrid threats.”

The video was used as part of an “Advanced Special Operations Combating Terrorism” course offered at JSOU earlier this year, for a lesson on “The Emerging Terrorism Threat.” JSOU is operated by U.S. Special Operations Command, the umbrella organization for America’s most elite troops. JSOU describes itself as geared toward preparing special operations forces “to shape the future strategic environment by providing specialized joint professional military education, developing SOF specific undergraduate and graduate level academic programs and by fostering special operations research.”

  1. Good find, Shorty.
    I noticed that the unspoken, but underlying, theme carried within this film is that somehow the military is morphing into police, just as, coincidentally, the police are becoming militarized.

    Readers may want to re-visit Part Two of my series titled “An Empire Strikes Home”, wherein I exposed “OOTW” (Operations Other Than War) as an emerging doctrine in the U.S. military.

  2. Just ran across this piece at Technocracy News —

    “New Urban Agenda: Chinese Government to Move 100 Million Farmers to Cities by 2020”

    Ahhh, yes! The benefits of social engineering via government planning. Can’t help but wonder if the Chinese hacked into the Pentagon’s training video above and were inspired.

  3. From a globalist perspective it makes a lot of sense. Pile people into mega cities where corruption and crime will break the spirit of even the most ardent liberty minded among us. Then the elites can begin their long awaited depopulation under the color of law where undesirables are imprisoned in mass. The link below covers the topic well.

    Eliminating Civil Liberties Reduces Crime

    Reducing crime is easy. All we have to do is to eliminate the Constitution and get rid of all these rights. If a person commits a crime then just shoot ’em. Why bother with a trial or a presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Why bother spending tax money to put these people in jail? So we fry a few innocent people. We’re eliminating crime and saving the taxpayer money. A bullet only costs a few cents. Wouldn’t we all be safer if we just killed off all the lawbreakers and other undesirables? Wouldn’t that cut down on crime?

    You bet it would. It worked very well for Stalin and Hitler. In Russia, if you even thought about committing a crime you were killed. Russia under Stalin was a society of people who obeyed the law. But is that what we want here? I don’t think so.

  4. Progressives always espouse a hypocritical POV. Environmentalists will tell you (rightly so) that the worse environmental problems are dislocation and concentration of natural resources. Note the second half of that statement. If we look at food stuffs for example, we find that we take them from the rural areas, concentrate them into the urban centers, then further concentrate them into the rivers and ultimately into the oceans.
    So then why do the mega cities make sense to the Environmentalists? Simple, it’s all about control and more specifically, taxation. First thing they teach in Anthropology 101 about “Civilizations” is that cities were created to redistribute resources and cultivate a tax base…..

  5. October 11th, 2016 The Total Amount Of Debt In The World Just Hit A Record $152,000,000,000,000 (152 Trillion)

    If anyone ever asks you how much debt there is in the world, now you will know the answer. According to the IMF, the total amount of debt around the globe has now hit a staggering 152 trillion dollars. That is an amount of money that is almost unimaginable, and the IMF says that it is equivalent to 225 percent of global GDP. It is the biggest debt bubble in the history of the planet, and it is rising at an extremely alarming pace. Experts all over the world agree that when this debt bubble finally bursts, it is going to create an economic crisis on a scale that humanity has never seen before.

  6. Though I have been exposed to this through geography courses and sociology courses while working on my BA back in the 2000s this still is disturbing. I know that the powers and thrones want to take the various Conurbations and turn them into new regions. This alteration of the current maps is all part of the Elitists’ goals for a single world government and the elimination of existing nations and there borders. As an Oath Keeper since January of 2016 I find their goals offensive. They are subjugating our military to be part of their international enforcement arm and indoctrinating our younger officers and enlisted into modern Waffen SS willing to obey any order regardless of its legality.
