Who will take over the world? in General Discussion Posted August 27, 2011 · Report reply I believe it is actually Google that is going to take over the world. The center of industrialization in reality takes the form of a 'front' of sorts, like a relative line that slowly creeps westward over the course of decades. 50 years ago it was in the Americas. 30 years ago it was Japan. 10 years ago it was China. China is actually going the way of Japan and America now as point of fact. If my guesses are correct, that front where rapid modernization and industrial growth is west of China in the countries that were formerly part of the USSR. They're not going to take over the world, they are just going to dominate the marketplace for the next decade before the front moves further west and they see a peak and decline. Google on the other hand is omnipresent. They operate worldwide and are not chained to any particular physical location. Nearly every civilized country in the world has come to depend on Google, or make extensive use of them. If anyone really is capable of taking over the world as it stands right now, Google is the closest to it.
