In mid-October 2016, The Intercept obtained a video via the Freedom of Information Act, titled "Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity," where it states "This is the world of our future. It is one we are not prepared to effectively operate within... and it is unavoidable.
There are a number of reasons this video is described as terrifying, as it depicts a world where 60 percent of the population resides in urban areas that become "megacities, which means with more than 10 million people living in them , but historical data and charts indicate that for the U.S. that percentage will be far higher as more and more people are forced to flock to urban areas versus rural living.
According to the list of 37 cities across the world that already have more than 10 million people residing in them, two are already located within the United States. New York City with over 23 million, and Los Angeles with more than 18 million.
Those numbers are expected to rise as are the cities within the U.S. that will become "megacities."
THE WORLD OF OUR FUTURE
The video was first created in 2014 for the U.S. Army, with The Intercept quoting a statement from Army spokesperson William Layer, stating "It was made for an internal military audience to illuminate the challenges of operating in megacity environments."
The audience which this training video is being shown to, is the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations University, used as part of an “Advanced Special Operations Combating Terrorism” course offered at JSOU earlier this year.
Via the Intercept: "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."
As the film unfolds, we’re bombarded with an apocalyptic list of ills endemic to this new urban environment: “criminal networks,” “substandard infrastructure,” “religious and ethnic tensions,” “impoverishment, slums,” “open landfills, over-burdened sewers,” and a “growing mass of unemployed.” The list, as long as it is grim, accompanies photos of garbage-choked streets, masked rock throwers, and riot cops battling protesters in the developing world. “Growth will magnify the increasing separation between rich and poor,” the narrator warns as the scene shifts to New York City.
I find it interesting that within the video below we hear specific mention of the future with "unregulated growth." That term stuck out as did the direct implication that the U.S. military would be sent into megacities, which we already know include cities within the U.S., to maintain military control.
While third-world imagery is used in the video, they are very relevant because our miltary is being taught to expect this as "The world of our future," which they call "unavoidable."
We have seen unprecedented military training on U.S. soil (Jade Helm), the pre-positioning of military assets all across the U.S., multiple visual examples proving the UN is also positioning assets throughout the country, and Americans such as survivalists, religous members, veterans, constitutionalists, preppers, and others, have been labeled by the Obama administration as dangerous, extremists and potential domestic terrosists, which sets us all up as "enemies" of the state should the order be given to the military to take control of any area.
Big cities are death traps, not just in the event of a major disaster or terrorist attack, but those converging into these big cities, specifically these megacities, people are basically rounding themselves up.
The military trains for the battles they are preparing to fight and the very fact that they are using this video as part of their educational courses, tells us clearly exactly who they are training to "control" and where they are preparing to fight.
